Oh Deer!

Today being our (Tuesday)Friday, my favorite world traveler and I decided to get out of the city, once and for all. Even the third earthquake that struck at 8:30 in the morning didn't stop us from taking a train out to Nara, a cozy little town located beyond city limits, filled with all kinds of fun things to see.

Temples, shrines, Starbucks, and a lot of deer awaited us, and as the latest typhoon made its way closer and closer, Karen and I ignored the high winds as best we could and enjoyed our first day away from city life. Take a look for yourself!

Nara Park: The deer are really cool, until they start biting your privates.

I wonder what "Nooooo" means in Japanese. Karen could have been telling that deer, "Yes, please keep eating this bag, mr. deer." Its a mystery to me!

Yes, but were you wearing pants when the third quake hit? I bet you weren't. Therefore, it is clearly your fault.

y'know, i think you're right anni. i looked it up, and "noooo" does in fact translate to "please keep eating my bag."

also, during the third (and then fourth) earthquake i was in bed, so i was, in fact, sans pants.

i guess it was my fault afterall.

okay, the deer was BILINGUAL.

and jed was sans pants during the 4th earthquake as well.

You must not have been here when 6 deer stood in our back yard for 1 1/2 hours eating apples. One was a huge buck with a rack of antlers. AND today a bear crossed my path when I was running!!!!!!!

Science may be described as the art of systematic over-simplification.
