hasui: winter moon

The gasman cometh

Cheerful, helpful, and ninety minutes early on this sunny windy spring day. My furnace and thermostat are both healthy and, fingers crossed, I'm spared the need of buying new ones for another year.

It's been so long since I last read any Japanese that I'd forgotten how to use the Wordtank. Fortunately it comes back to me, but I feel the need to be careful with the thing because Wordtanks are both fragile and rare as hens' teeth. Apps on the phone simply don't work as well, not least because the phone has no Japanese input. The tablet *might* work better and eventually I suppose I'll have to go with that. Or start reviewing kanji again so I can look up vocabulary rather than readings.
