First Day Done

Sat in front of a computer terminal for the better part of a day, wading through Japanese documents and parsing them according to guidelines.  I don’t think I have ever read so much Japanese in one day since my days in Japan at Large International Automobile Manufacturer #1.

I am impressed by the man hours and $$$ it took no doubt, to set this all up and the $$$ this is costing one of LIAM 1’s vendors…

All on the project are supervised by staff attorneys, young and I am guessing on the bottom of the law firm’s food chain. First day’s impression not a good one; have the sense we on the project are viewed as doing どうかた作業 and looked upon as such. Transportation costs are an issue too, either driving in and parking or taking Metro, its high and its all on my dime. 

Have the feeling I will be glad in February, when this project is done.

    sounds like a pain! Can you carpool? (Also a pain, but then you can get into the HOV lanes and get home faster!)

    I hope something can be worked out – costs add up on the metro these days with the peak of peak fares etc.
