For a while, I didn't know just how my last week or so here would play out. And then Thursday night I got a pretty clear idea. I managed to trick an editor into liking one of my story ideas, so I'm going to spend most of my last week working.

A friend asked me Friday if I was staying awake 24/7 to soak up my remaining time here. Not quite. But almost.

One week and many wine bars to go before I sleep.

Sounds like a story idea to run with indefinitely a la NYT and its BsAs article(s), albeit a much better one. I like how you managed to convince an editor to pay you to pickle your liver and drown your woes at leaving during your last week. I wish I were there to, uh, help you through it.

Well, if I might use this opportunity to set the record straight: I can drink as much as I want, as long as I pay for all of it.

That said, I wish you were here to help me, too. Fortunately my friends here have offered their assistance.

Now. . . shouldn't you be thinking of a story idea I can pitch re: my trip to Japan?
