Last week I had forgotten an interesting tidbit about my self-introduction presentation at work. During my presentation I introduced some of the apps I’d built for the Mac – ImageXY and Jisho. ImageXY was popular in Japan for its first couple of years and one of my co-workers actually used to use it all the time! First time I’ve met a random user of ImageXY!
The covid vaccine was finally approved in Japan and they’re starting to vaccinate doctors and nurses this week. Still no idea when I’ll be able to get my prick, but I imagine it will be sometime this summer. Speaking of getting the shot, I found out my grandma got her second covid vaccine shot last Wednesday. Woohoo!
I had my annual health check this week. As nobody is going in to the office, we are free to do our health check anywhere. I went to a a clinic In Minatomirai, as it was the closest to my house. The clinic itself was the top two floors of a high rise. We carried a little rfid card at each station and see a nurse/tech for the test, and finally a doctor briefly at the end to cover the results. Hope I can use this place next year too.
There was a large earthquake off the cost of Fukushima. It was about a 4 where I live in Yokohama, certainly the strongest and longest quake I’ve felt in a while. It reminded me of 3/11 in someways as just when you think it was going to stop it just kept getting stronger. I was fast asleep when it started, but you can see my heart rate from my Apple Watch about when it hit.
This week Leo turned 3. He has his official “chocolate debut” as he picked out a chocolate cake decorated like a panda. He must not have been impressed with the hype around chocolate as he only ate 2 bites.
I watched this good documentary called Winter in Stockholm. I hadn’t realized how much I miss watching documentaries like these randomly on TV.
