Whiplash and Cup Cakes

Whiplash and Cup Cakes

I woke up today much stiffer and more sore than yesterday.   I decided to not make the commute to the office and work from home.   After a few hours I decided to head to a Chiropractor.   I found a great Medical Information Service in Japan called AMDA.  You can call them and tell them the type of doctor you are looking for in and in what location and they will find for you.   You can call them at 03 5285 8088.   Very handy service. けさから、私のくびがいたいです。しごとに行きませんでしたがうちでしごとをしました。またいしゃに行きました。

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with Summilux 21mm f/1.4 with a 21mm Viewfinder and a FujiFilm x100.

It turns out I have a whiplash from yesterday's car accident.   I have never been to a chiropractor so I didn't really know what to expect.   It was more of less what you see on TV, as quick twist and things popping back into place.   I'll need to go a few more times I am afraid until I am 100% again.

Last time I was here with Kai he sat in every car they had on the floor and steered while driving around the shop in his mind.

I stopped off at the book section...  I am trying to make sure I do more learning on Japan and in general shift my reading to topics on Japan.   I am currently reading Tokyo Vice by Jake Adelstein.  A very interesting book on the Japanese Yakuza (mafia).   If you have any recommendations on other books on Japan or based in Japan let me know.  I also picked up a couple of Japanese drill books; Japanese Adjective Magic and Japanese Verb Magic.  Now I typically avoid books with words like easy and magic, especially when it relates to the Japanese Language as there is nothing easy about it.    These however seemed really good so think they will be a good addition to my Japanese Study book shelf.
