*And* it's snowing

Oh, alright. Today is Wednesday, but I did my reading meme yesterday. Reality has not quite reasserted itself yet.

Knee exercises have succeeded in making my quads too tight. Three hours of work leave me exhausted. Can no longer lever myself off the floor with hands and feet.

The Emperor gave his last New Year's address and the proper officials are considering what the new reign name will be, and this feels All Wrong, because Heisei started not that long ago. This is what living during the reigns of E2R and the Shouwa emperor does to your time sense. Sixty-plus is the proper length for a reign, and anything less is simply too short.
