Now that the dust has cleared in Vancouver...

Congratulations to a few more Japanese medalists at the just-concluded 2010 Winter Olympics.They are Mao Asada on her silver medal in ladies' figure skating;and the speed skating team of Nao Kodaira,Maki Tabata,and Masako Hozumi who took the team silver in womens' team pursuit just narrowly edged by the German team(by a mere .02 second)for the gold.The final medal count of 3 silver and 2 bronze is still their best since Nagano,not to mention that it exceeds their combined medal haul at Salt Lake(a silver and a bronze)and Torino(where they would have been skunked had Shizuka Arakawa not struck gold).Again,one last shotout to all the Japanese medalists at Vancouver...

Anyway,I've dusted off the Dragon Quest III GBC reissue(playable on the GBA)to re-orrient myself with the first bonus dungeon,re-visiting earlier dungeons where I conveniently skipped the Canniboxes and Mimics early on,and to battle the Divinegon enough times to unlock the second 'Fungeon.'The latter is likely before resuming Dragon Quest III...

With a potential unmitigated disaster coming to Sacro in a few months,I've been researching local transit schedules from the Bay at this NorCal-centric public transit wiki;and there is an abundance that license-less transitarians in the 916(myself included)can only dream of,not to mention that transit providers in the Bay are better funded(bridge tolls plus a higher percentage of local sales taxes allocated to transit).I've had a near-urge to print some out.However,I'm holding off on requesting a Bay Area edition of For Rent magazine for another 3 weeks(the RT board while make decisions on service cuts at a March 22 hearing).I seriously hope that the RT board doesn't catch up to the tea-bagging minority dictatorship in the California State Legislature in terms of stupidity.Even with Rite Aid locations in both the Central Valley and the Bay Area all covered by a common union contract and some sections of the Bay are affordable rental-housing wise,"breaking up" with an area where I've lived my entire life(over 3 whole decades)would definitely be hard to do.Call me crazy if you'd like,but learning how to drive is not an viable option especially when there are enough lousy drivers on the local roads to the point that I still can't trust myself enough in the operator's seat of any motor vehicle...

Happy birthday to both Misa Kobayashi(who turns 34)and Sakura Nogawa(who turns 32)...
