I have spent quite a bit of my life living away from the country where I was born and grew up (that'd be Australia). What I have learnt is that living overseas gives you balance - it makes you more aware of the world around you and appreciate where you came from.
I was going to write a long post about living overseas, but I don't want Pinku to get too deep - there's a time and place for all of that. What I REALLY wanted to talk about this morning is how I love peer-to-peer file sharing. When you live in Japan (without cable tv), your television choices are limited. Just to let you know I do enjoy a bit of the ol' Japanese tv (especially food shows), but every now and again I love to download some American tv - Sex and the City, the Simpsons, the Family Guy, and we even downloaded the first four episodes of Paris Hilton's 'Simple Life'. Now I'm not sure whether I would've watched this in any other country BUT here it is fun and makes you feel connected to the 'real' world.
Last night I downloaded the latest episode of 'Sex and the City' which is in its final season. I don't think there's anything wrong with downloading tv - I wouldn't have to pay for it at home, so why should I here!!!
I love you, Kazaa.
