The Dark Knight only just came out over here, whereas in America it's been out long enough for people to start saying 'shut up about Batman'.

...Is there any point writing about it, I wonder?

As promised, more of my Japanese homework.

It's now my summer holiday... I went to a great fireworks display on Friday with some friends (including aionwatha, dilettantka, hinoai and starrbeam). Because it was her birthday, hinoai had a Red Velvet cake. I've no idea what that is, but it was delicious. The picnic was lots of fun, but I figured it was okay to drink a hell of a lot of rum because I had just finished work for the next six days.

It was a wonderful feeling, watching the dragonflies' wings catch the light of the afternoon sun and then sparkle in the lantern glow later as the sun went down. When we walked across the grass, little grasshoppers flew out with every step. I suppose that when I leave Japan, these will be the days I remember.
