Good Friday is always a lost holiday. (And I still resent both having religious feasts be statutory holidays *and* there being two of them in the same weekend.) Yesterday was another marathon and today was the Saturday-substitute achey logey fall apart aftermath. Had a good imitation of a cold this morning but have overdosed it into quiescence. Handyman was to come today to do a number of needed chores about the house but cancelled as his son was in town and it was going to rain, so no raccoon baffles or new clothesline. Thus read O-oku 2-9 and made a carrot soup-with-other-stuff-included (collard stems, sweet potato, and a white potato for body) and that was pretty much it.

How are you liking O-oku this time?

Rather better. The mishmash of historical English from five different centuries doesn't bother me as much, and it's amusing to see the iteration of selfless devoted men with their delicate understanding of how the bloody captious shoguns Just Want To Be Loved. Amused also that Yoshimune doesn't do that.

It's just that, as with the real shoguns, I have difficulty keeping them separate, even if it's only two that I really confuse. It might be easier if I could see their names in kanji.

Oh, yes! I can never keep anyone straight in English from Chinese stories, too! The characters really are necessary.
