[Tuesday 19th September]
It was a very boring and uneventful day at work, but despite (or perhaps because of) this I found myself increasingly irate towards the end of the day. On leaving the office, I was ignored by the security guard (there's usually a customary "otsukaresama desu"), which only seemed to make matters worse. By the time I got home I was quite fuming.

I'd downloaded that Arctic Monkeys album the previous day. I'm dimly aware they were super popular recently in the UK, but that hype certainly hasn't manifested in Japan in any way I've noticed. So I just approached it with an open mind, and have quite enjoyed it - especially when in a bit of an agitated state of mind like this evening.

Gradually as the evening wore on my pointless bout of anger subsided. We ordered in pizza for dinner, which I washed down with a couple of nice cold beers. I think the combination probably did the trick and improved my state of mind significantly.
