It's starting to get cold. Last night I busted out the heater for the first time. Of course it seems likely I won't have to endure much of the Japanese winter (although it looks like I still might get to enjoy the delights of a Korean winter). So far the cool has been mostly felt in the extremities (I have cold feet, so I'm thinking it's not really that cold, but a combination of the cold and me not eating too much (in my experience on the days that I haven't eaten a lot, I feel the cold a lot more).

The reason I'm not eating so much is not a fad diet or a desire to have cold feet. It's the result of a rather limited food budget, and indeed a rather limited budget on the whole. Which is the result of the whole cluster-fuck that NOVA has become. The company is almost down the tubes, hopefully liquidation and government payouts for unpaid wages come soon, and if anyone ever finds the former CEO (he was deposed at a board meeting which he failed to attend, and no-one has seen him for months) it looks like he's going to be in a lot of legal trouble.

Times are looking to be lean for a while yet. I have a job in the works in Korea but even then my first paycheck won't be until the middle of January, so I'm going to have to last a while longer on what I've got. Hopefully Korea isn't too cold. I'm also looking forward to being able to afford some more variety in my diet.

Just like a Charles Dickens book.

I think I need to read some more Dickens because that went right over my head.
