The big news yesterday, of course, was the earthquake and tsunami off the coast of Japan. Since I work for a Japanese company, I was of course very worried about my coworkers. I learned later via email that our headquarters in Tokyo and research lab in Shin-Yokohama came through unscathed, though many people spent the night at work because the trains weren't running. I'm still worried about our factory in Sendai, though I think we would have heard if it had been seriously damaged. Still... 9.1 puts this in the top five quakes ever recorded.
I did manage to be fairly productive at work, and it sounds as though I've shaken some money loose to bring in another person on factory diagnostics and testing.
Did some more thinking about the handout on recognizing emotions (which as you can see I found online). And the Wikipedia article on shame also mentions the vicarious shame (which might be better describes as vicarious embarrassment) that's behind my loathing of most forms of comedy.
Almost everything's available online. The top link of the day, I think, is CBT Self Help Leaflets & Booklets and related pages at getselfhelp.co.uk, also apparently known as GET.gg Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Self-Help Resources. Which is pretty cool.
Reminder: the "It's Green" party today at Grand Central Starport.
