Jet lag

I've now been in Japan for three days and I'm still suffering a bit of jet lag.

I spent most of Sunday asleep, on and off, from the time I checked into the hotel (which, incidentally, is great. I have an enormous room, nice tv, great bathroom...) I pretty much slept until Monday morning. I took a little break to get something to eat, but I really didn't do a whole lot.

I did watch 'Men With Brooms' starring Paul Gross and Leslie Neilsen. Paul Gross is the movie king in Canada. He co-wrote, directed and starred in the movie. It wasn't bad at all. Certainly better than I would have thought for a curling movie. You may remember Paul Gross from the brilliant 'Due South' that, unfortunately, lost it's American backing. It's a pity that so many good shows are ignored by American TV audiences. Apparantly, 'Veronica Mars' might be cancelled! For those of you who don't know it, buy an NTSC tv, multi-region DVD player and get season 1 from Great series. Best thing on tv not created by Joss Whedon.

Anyway, on that note, I'm going to head off to do some work. It's 8.49 here, so I've got a little over an hour to make it to the office. Shouldn't be a problem (he says before the train strike...)
