Update on a Couple Things

Remember the building that was getting torn down just down the street? Well it's gone and they seem to be building another in its place. I feel really sorry for the people living in the apartment buildings behind it.


Also, we tried the mini oranges and I have to say, I don't recommend them. They are interesting conversation pieces and could be fun if you were creating a miniture world or having a tea party or something. They are more trouble then they are worth. I wasn't sure how to eat them so I tried peeling them and this was difficult and messy. We cut a few in half and as you can see, they are full of seeds!! Which is insane because they are so small and yet they can fit 4 or 5 seeds in each orange. They taste fine but nothing special. If you're wanting to eat an orange, buy a regular orange. I'm not sure what we will do with all of the tiny oranges. I suppose if the ajoshis (old men) are getting too loud at night again we can pelt them with tiny fruits. That'll teach 'em.

I think you should pelt the old men even if they aren't being noisey!!

I was going to chuck ice cubes at the students who gather right under my window at 2 or 3 am when I have to get up at 6 am. But thanks to you, I now have a better idea.

I am single-handedly keeping the tiny orange industry booming!

Finny, are you sure those aren't kumquats that you eat peel and all? Although maybe kumquats don't have that many seeds...
