To date I have met 7 Hiroko-sans. The latest was a lady who just joined the gym. ANd did I tell you that my Japanese teacher is Hiroko too? The original Hiroko said really the name is not a common name and I said wahhhh? 7 Hirokos in a small area is not common?!
It is cold here. It has been snowing off and on – heh you can tell I ahve nothing to blog about. A lady from the gym who is a doctor’s wife took me to Yamada Electrical store to buy a small electric blanket. The sheets are so freezing cold when I get into bed. Why or why did I not bring my own electric blanket. There is no heating in our room. The whole freakin apartment is cold wind whizzes in through the windows and door seals. This lady, whose name I have forgotten used to live in Boston for 2 years, about 20 years ago. Everyone is so very nice to me.
