There wasn't a patch of snow on the ground, but the sky was what Simon and Garfunkel would call a hazy shade of winter*, so I hibernated with some anime. Episodes 1a-3b of "Ninja Nonsense: The Legend Of Shinobu" (2004) and eps 1-4 of the classic "Yawara!" (1989), both original DVDs given to me by RS, plus eps 1-4 of "Welcome To The NHK" (2006) via YouTube. The last is different again to the manga and book - probably better, if the 20 subsequent episodes maintain the improved pacing.
Also enjoying: The Waratahs starting the Super 14 season with a semi-convincing win versus the dangerous Hurricanes in Wellington. The 37th Country Music Awards of Australia and Catherine Britt collecting Female Artist Of The Year.
Reading: "NGamer #30".
*Yes, in summer. Stupid post-modern weather.
