Keya and I went to see The Last Samurai tonight. It was much better than I expected. And I enjoyed listening to the Japanese, trying to see how much of it I remembered. (Very little.) But I did have one complaint. When they arrive in Yokohama harbor, the filmmakers felt the need to show Fuji-San in the background. Do they think all Americans are that dumb? Mt. Fuji is at least a couple of hours away by bullet train. We get that they're in Japan without having to resort to clichés. <sigh>

I gave myself my birthday present this afternoon. I have long wanted to have a massage that wasn't constrained by time, where the therapist kept working until everything that needed covering was covered, regardless of how long it took. So today I did just that. The massage lasted close to three hours, but my therapist gave me a birthday discount and only charged me for two.

If any of you on the South Shore are looking for a good (and friendly) massage therapist, let me know. I'd like to be able to send some referrals her way, since I don't know any other massage therapist who would be willing to be as flexible as she has been with me.

Have you ever tried one of those massage machines where you are massaged by jets of water behind a plastic sheet? They give a surprisingly good massage, and machines for home use are now coming down into the $5,000 range.

Yes, I think they are worthless for my needs. They can relax, but I don't really do massage for relaxation. I do deep tissue work. There's no way that random jets of water can identify knots and work them out, or simulate the friction of an oiled hand or finger or elbow digging across your skin.
