Sunday January 22, 1:01 a.m.

Might be wondering why I'm still up typing away here. Promise you I won't be too long; I have to get some sleep before that massive dim sum party later today.

Had an initial successful Skype video call with my student from the swanky district of Tokyo, known as Den'en-Chofu. Kinda feeling like Scotty from "Star Trek" in that I'm praying that the bandwidth holds together for the first official lesson in a couple of weeks. I think our images were clear enough; just have to think about things like payment and Skype-influenced lesson format. My parents will probably be asking me about what the heck was going on in my room.

I've got Kate Bush's "Babooshka" going on in my head. Gotta hit the hay.
