I have got to stay away from Amazon.com....

Today's Indulgence:

  •  Kawanakajima 1553-1564: Samurai Power Struggle (Campaign, 130) (Campaign)

  • Ashigaru 1467-1649 (Warrior)
Mishima's Sword: Travels in Search of a Samurai Legend

Last week's indulgence:

A Year in the Life of a Shinto Shrine
Japanese Landscapes: Where Land and Culture Merge
Traditional Domestic Architecture of Japan
Japanese No Dramas (Penguin Classics)
The Holy Kojiki -- Including, The Yengishiki
Traditional Toys of Japan  (still waiting for this one to come in)

(Don't think I have read all these.  I have been reading the intro background for the Noh plays, about half aobut the book on the Kojiki, thumbed through Traditional Domestic Architecture.  It has a lot of info, and I will need to read to find the right stuff)  I went over the book about a year in the life of a Shinto Shrine, and learned some interesting stuff right  away, but I really need to sit and read it, and soon, if I can ever get my nose out of the Phoenix Blade...LOL.

Five Senses Meme

1.) How is your eyesight?

Nearsighted and astigmatic.  I can't read with my bifocals on, so I take them off all the time.  I can still thread a needle at 52, so my close sight is still good.

2.) How is your hearing? 

fine.  I can hear higher pitched sounds than some folks I knowl

3.) Taste?

Yummy, yummy.... I have fondnesses for chocolate, medium rare steak and  things highly seasoned.  All seem to be in working order.

4.) Smell? Any allergies?

Smell works too well.   I have chemical sensitivies that flair up sometimes, and it's amazing what tiny amounts of stuff I can smell if I'm really being bothered....

5.) Touch? Ticklish?

Do not touch my feet.  Ever.  I have nerve damage neuropathy in my left pinkie.

6.) Have you ever been in a serious accident?


7.) Do you have any physical disabilities?


8.) Do you have any mental/emotional disabilities?

Winter depression.  Tendency to internalize stress.  Addicted to low-level anxiety....LOL.

9.) Do you have to use any special tools to use your computer?

Just squint.

10.) Are there any tasks other people can do easily that you can't? 

Sure.  Reach the top shelf in the kitchen, for instance.

I'm supposed to tag 5 people, but most of the people I would tag have been tagged, so tag yourself!
