on monday we had a spoiler installed on the car. it has a red brake light on it, and we're hoping we won't be rear-ended, again. yoshi thinks it looks cool, which is a good thing, i guess.

yesterday i went to the police station to renew my japanese license. actually, yoshi went with me in the morning, and the gods were smiling down on us because it just happened to be a day when they were renewing licenses. apparently, the local station only does this on the second and fourth tuesday of the month. well, the upshot is, since it was my first renewal, i had to sit through a two hour lecture (well, an hour and fifteen minute lecture and then a 25 minute video on accidents). since we (all nine of us renewing yesterday) were so silent, we actually didn't have to stay the whole 2 hours. yay.
