i know it might seem like it, but really i haven't!  i've been meaning to write, but keep putting it off.  it doesn't help that i haven't uploaded pictures in ages (i still have pictures/video from kijima kogen that i haven't downloaded from the camera!)  i have a lot to write about, lots to catch up on, and i will get to it!  but today is a busy day and tomorrow is a holiday, so i'm not sure when i'll get anything up.  but i will try to get something on here soon.
