Alooooooha!

Greetings, everybody, from Honolulu, where I will be participating in a Japan-focused academic seminar for three weeks, and then doing independent research and beach time for a week.

Long day in the air, of course. With, of course, the difficult decision of "okay, how do I pick a movie that I am interested in, but don't really need an actual screen or particularly good video quality, and I may fall asleep in the middle of it..." Ended up watching a recent (I think? It's part of the "Bones is pregnant" season...) episode of "Bones," which was.... odd. I mean, it felt like they'd taken some of the character development backwards, in terms of "Bones does not understand your strange earthling emotions, or the ideas you are trying to communicate." Also, there was a new character who was "Ah ahm from thus South, and thus will always wear a baseball cap, even with my labcoat, and tahk in colorful idioms and generally come across as an uneducated hick, even though I am brilliant." Really disconcerting example of "southern stereotypes stuffed into a show by people who are not actually from the South."

Right; I suspect that this level of babble about silly things, I am very tired, and should thus go get some sleep.
