Why do you live there? Not sure if you've ever said.

He and Ked moved there so that they could live in an religious bubble familial unit within a country that actively kept them socially isolated.

I met Kedvesem in university in the States, but she'd grown up overseas (mostly Italy and Japan), so once we decided to marry, we saw Japan as a convenient option. Her family is here. (No, she's a white American girl.) So we moved here as soon as we graduated back in 1997. For the first six months, we took over hr parents' English classes while they were on furlough back in the States. (They're missionaries.) This gave us a window to find jobs and an apartment, both of which we did with alacrity.

I thought we might stay a couple years, but time marched on. We had kids, I got a great job, and the financial support for child-rearing is excellent here, so we decided to stay.

Fast-forward to 20 years in Japan! I've taken a different route from most, though, by cobbling together jobs instead of going for full-time slavery. So, I write gay romance novels and Ked is an editor working via telecommuting with a publisher in Canada (yay for paypal!). I also dress up like a priest and perform hotel weddings on the weekend. In addition, I sit at a desk at the front of a university classroom and tell the kids to get into groups and speak English with minimum input from me.

And I get eight weeks of vacation a year.

Life is a dream.

tfw you can't find your p38 and need to open a can of ravioli at whole foods so you resort to your best friend in your pocket- a rusty nail. After 15 or so minutes of violent thoughts taken out on aluminum I ended up ruining it with too much pepper. Yay, tetanus.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
