...because Thursday was the annual autumnal equinox.However,it did get off to a wacky start as on the way home from some errands a hit-and-run driver rear-ended a city bus I was riding
.The getaway car did suffer obviously significant front end damage(including the hood),but the bus suffered at worst a bent fender.I've kept a written personal record in case there's a snail-mail or phone follow-up,as whenever a public transit vehicle is involved in an accident(it's happened to me before),passengers are usually requested to provide personal information and their accounts of what happened even when there are no injuries...
Speaking of local stuff,it's about time the

Yesterday,while browsing at Best Buy
before work,I did comparisons on various MP3 players
.As I was getting informed advice by product specialists,I was then appalled to find out that the 5 GB Lyra RD 2765
that I'd been using had very shoddy battery life for products in its class with the same capacity(a mere 8-9 hours on a single charge and not even mentioned on the external packaging).Additionally,most MP3 players with smaller(2 or 4 GB) and larger (6+ GB) capacities have better battery life.I then ended up buying myself a 6 GB Rio Carbon
(more than double the max battery life according to the package)that was on clearance only because the makers were pulling out of the business;as they said it was a very reliable brand.Good thing I still have the receipt for the RD 2765 I bought at Target
2 months ago;because I still have a month to return it if I had that option,and I could do it as soon as tomorrow(also before work)...
All from Buy It Now

Since it's already tomorrow(the 25th)in Japan,happy 41st birthday to Kikuko Inoue who has both voiced a lot of well known anime characters(so many I can't quite list them all)and co-starred alongside Kappei-sama
