Is everyone doing well? Today is a nice day, don't you think so?
Last meeting, we watched a Japanese comedy called No Laughing Hotel. 5 new trainees must avoid any laughing during their day of training which is loaded with funny gimmicks which are designed to get them to laugh. The punishment for laughing is a slap in the butt by a whip-stick kind of thing. The poor trainees go through many gimmicks in which resisting laughing is futile! Here is a link to first part if you want to check it out.

Also this week we had our first fund-raising event! We tried something new and made hot and fresh rice balls(onigiri-おにぎり）out in the quad. They came out really good!
