"working on my faults and cracks..."

2.11.2009

still not partying, since 660 BC

"On tomorrow's schedule, the kanji says something about canceling school for 'kinnenbi.' What is that?"

"Anniversary."

"An anniversary? Cool! Whose?"

"Japan's."

"Oooooh."



Three years in, and I've only figured this out now? Guess I should be a bit of an arse for not knowing, had there been trombones in the streets and salarymen swinging from lampposts, but there ain't. And nary a commemorative Kit Kat to be seen either.

These byzantine Japanese anniversaries suck.
