City by City (County by county) Polls

Where on the web can I see polls for each city or county, not just state?

Engrish Entry

This is a machine-translated blog entry from Japanese (mixi.jp). Can you guess the meaning?

Title: Cram school lecturer interview/mother is recalled.

It applies for the cram school teacher as one step because of becoming the mathematics teacher, and the interview has been received. The interview was awfully tired though the feeling was good. It was considerably tired to have received warning of various prohibited matters (commonsense things of the classroom diplomatic style prohibition, the Mead exchange prohibition, the sexual harassment prohibition, and the power harassment prohibition, etc. with the student and dress codes) with the video etc.

However, the person taught physics at a level the third grade of high-school might be able to work even at once because there seems to be demand that draws near considerably.

The interview is the one that becomes a considerable stress even though the feeling of the interview was good. It comes to want to rely on dying mother when a large stress hangs. The appearance of mother who talks by "Often held out" and the smile floats on eyes. (^_^)

Getting a new cell phone! (^_^)

I'm getting a new cell phone soon! It's this Sony-Ericsson & NTT docomo phone. I'm changing the carrier to docomo from SoftBank because I talk to my grandma a lot, who uses docomo. If both of two people who are relatives use docomo, the call is absolutely free. Moreover, docomo provides a service that warns you about your next phone bill price according to the threshold amount you set. Very customer-friendly. I'll give my AQUOS cell phone (SoftBank 912SH by sharp) to my dad.

Outta Hospita again! (^_^)v 기쁘다

So I was hospitalized again, for back pain, mild despair, mania and mild paranoia this time, but I got out of there yesterday very genkily. There were two more events yesterday. Our family had a dinner party with a neighbor woman Chang Mingyong whom I befriended in my church and her 2.5-year-old son Yohan (John in English). We had tons of fun with them! Mingyong speaks fluent Japanese (she has been in Japan for 6.5 years, 3 years in Tokyo and 3.5 years in Kyushu. She is from Seoul.), except that she has a hard time pronouncing TSU (つ). When she say 作る, she says ちゅくる. Anyway, we ate Korean yakiniku called Pulgogi, and we served to them chirashi-sushi and omelet. We played with Yohan for a long time. He was particularly interested in our cat Miru and the toys we brought from our storage. He also drew a picture with crayons (I drew with crayons a lot myself when I was in hospital.)

And yesterday was my sister Megumi's birthday too! We sang happy-birthday song, Yohan and Mingyong in Korean. It went like "Lam Sam Ha Hamnida.." I said ごちそうさま in Korean ("Chalmogo sumnida."), which I had studied before. I gave a picture I drew to my sister as a birthday present.

Today, my grandma's family (grandma, grandpa, uncle, aunt and cousin) came over to our house! My grandpa had been depressed for several months but he seemed to feel a lot better now. My free-spirited cousin gave a small bag with a green ♡ symbol to my sister. My uncle and aunt had bought a new Honda. It's got a DVD player screen hanging from the ceiling and internet-connected GPS navigation. Can't be any cooler.

So life's been very fulfilling to me.

One flew over (to Akihabara.)

Okay, I'm outta hospita! Very likely I will sue the hospital for human rights voilation, but before that, I will my spend time enjoying my freedom fully, here in Kanda and Akihabara, Tokyo.

Yesterday I met up with my best friend from grade school, and then with computer club friends from college. Both fantastic (it's okay for a guy to say 'fantastic', right?).

Today I went to Akihabara to go to see maid Chrome-san (http://www.mai-relax.com/tokyo/) for the first time in seven months, and then had a party with long-term (from 1995) online friends from a HyperCard club that was on NIFTY-Serve (now on Yahoo! groups Japan and mixi).

After that, I went to this Younger Sister Cafe called Nagomi where they were having "Dragon Quest Brave Heroes/Heroines Day." When I enter the cafe, the waitresses said "Whaddaya want, Boss Troll?" and I was surprised, but I got the humor five seconds later. I gained 50 HP (health points) by dining there, and when leaving, I said to one of the waitresses "Since you cast the Mahotora (Magic Power absorption) spell on me, I will reluctantly pay 550 yen to you. Next time we see each other you'll get a 'critical blow' by me, who is a Boss Troll (I resemble one)." I think there I showed the female warrior a good sense of humor ;-).

Been hospitalized,but okay.

I have been hospitalized in a (so-"cold") mental care center,but I am okay.

After my mom's tragic suicide, I suppose that this was only a matter of time. I've almost never liked this particular hospital!Reason: nurses and doctors so distant that they look at me in too objective a viewpoint and they just don't do any real mental/spiritual care. They only obey policies and rules and they get self-satified and praise, but that's no true help for the patients...Is this Japanese Zen and Bushido are all about? I hope not.

Sincerely I want to fly over this Pharisees' WorkNest, talk with my loved ones and go to church, indeedy.

Merry Christmas!

I hereby pray for all the poor, the bullied and the suffering in the world, and let the universe be filled with joy of Your birth.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

By the way, I feel jealous enough to want to turn those street-smart guys with beautiful-looking girlfriends on the main street of the city into mashed meatballs (ok, sorry Jesus, I made a terrible joke).
