Life here in Taisho is the same as usual, as we await the birth of our newest family member. My schedule is pretty full as I visit my regular schools as well as the odd infrequent appearance; such as tomorrow, when I will be teaching at Kageno shougakkou, about 40 mins from here -- past K-town.
Well, the Japan life stuff out of the way, I want to expand this entry to reference a few blogs and sites that I frequent. And by frequent, I mean when I get time to read my google reader feeds (hint: it's not every day). ;)
- Sentence First: A blog about our wonderful, intricate English language. Stan has posted a few comments to my blog in the past, as we exchanged thoughts; and I enjoy leaving comments on his posts from time to time.
Stuff Christians Like: Jon Acuff is funny and insightful. I just wish I had the time to read his very frequent entries. It's almost as if he runs a pictureless webcomic. Classy stuff.
The Kitchn: For all aspiring chefs out there, it is a great source of everything kitchenesque; from recipes to tips and tricks that you can use between the kitchen sink and the cupboard.
Kotaku: My source of gaming news. And a lot of news there is.
Lifehacker: A lot of great articles, from home improvement to invaluable computer resources.
Japan Probe: So I can see more of this country within which I dwell. As if there wasn't enough excitement in Shimanto... -_-
Because I follow a few, I decided to list some notable ones under their own heading:
- Dominic Deegan: I have been following this since 2002. I think it's the only webcomic that I have read consistently for more than five years.
Ctrl+Alt+Del: It is more of a drama these days with the occasional standalone bout of gaming hilarity. The sillies keep me coming back (especially Fail Druid!).
Dark Legacy Comics: My favourite World of Warcraft comic.
Looking for Group: For pony!
Least I Could Do: I found this through LFG (same authors), and wish I had followed it from earlier on. I really dig the "Beginnings" strip that they post once a week.
Out at Home: I only recently started reading this (within the last six months). I like the art style and the stories have been pretty good so far.
Others: There are other webcomics that I follow, which I haven't mentioned. Some are gaming comics and others are mostly just dramas or short stories.
