More tea whisks - there are 120 different shapes it seems. Depends on the school. "During the 36 years that Mr Kubo has been an artisan he has been in a constant dialog with bamboo and knows his material so well that he can tell by the sound of trunks being split whether the worker is doing it right. Sure enough, when he calls out to one of his apprentices, "That didn't sound right!" they apologize and try again."

We were doing directions in my Japanese class yesterday (Massugu itte kudasai), and the teacher handed out a map for us to write some route descriptions about. It was a map of the West End of Edinburgh, and was centred on the street where I was born. The teacher also did a simple tea ceremony which was good, I think she comes from Nara and used a whisk similar to this one - a wonderful thing when seen up close. I hadn't held one before. She had her father's tea bowl - he was a government official in Nara and it had been presented to him, so I expect it was quite special, but you really can't tell with tea bowls!

Twin sisters have twins (via daily jive) - I particularly liked this quote : "Dr. Larry Matsumoto, a physician who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, said the chances of twin sisters being pregnant with twin boys due on the same date are probably one in a million."

Xmas would not be complete without one - I particularly like "brilliantly coloured by craftsmen skilled in mold making, glass blowing and hand painting" - do they mean brightly coloured, or that the colouring is done really well? And what has mold making got to do with colouring? Also special is "using a Renaissance-era technique" - a description that could be applied to many things when you think about it : peeling potatoes, digging, washing
