8:38am ~ well, at least it isn’t Monday anymore.
Today is Songkrahn—the Thai New Year. ..or rather, the evening of, and ending. heh. water festival there, rainness here. the appropriateness / coincidentality is not that impressive, actually.
9:49am~ okay yea. i’m certainly not less tired today than i was yesterday.
11:30am~ holy rain outside.
11:58am~ gosh. every now and then, the steady rainfall gets pumped with a sudden assaultive wash from the sky. as if it became bored of being simply wet and decided to bellow down at whoever ordered this rain in the first place. an awesome and beautiful sound and scene, since it’s outside—and then i remember, and realize the sakura blossoms will surely all have been grounded today. ..like so many earthworms that crawled my driveway this morning, directionless.. and i, with apology and no hesitation, drove them over as i went my way. and the sound and rain fade, and leave puddles in the day.
1:56pm~ interesting, and sad on both sides, that vertical viewing of text is the one feature that microsoft internet explorer can do, and all the other otherwise superior browsers, simply can’t/don’t. so sad. I like the feature, where i’m currently uisng it at a remote location to nicely place text vertically agains the side-edge of a graphic. I don’t want to change it to an image, but viewed in any browser but ie, it shows horizontally, and screws up my whole simple layout scheme.
