|Jackman and friends, at 6.12am|
I've spent a bit of today sorting the materials and thinking about the writing schedule. It's back to the office on Monday but a February seminar presentation looms, not to mention a conference presentation in April. Both papers centre on the Japanese fellows in Queensland in the 1890s and that means examining some materials published in the 1890s, in 19th century Japanese. Oh, the life of an academic. I'm also keen to resume my blog writing (...oh, wait, that's what I'm doing...) and particularly capturing some aspects of the contemporary Japanese political scene. That is on its way.

Speaking of returning to routine, Friday nights has been beer and pizza night with friends for a while now, though with travelling and other interruptions, we've not done that for a few weeks. It's my turn to choose, order and pick-up. Apart from deciding where to put my new books, it's the toughest decision I've had all day... Cheers.
