So, I got sick. What's new? The kids are all hacking and gross so I was bound to catch it. But why is it that everytime I get sick it seems to turn into an ear infection? And why only on the left side? I'm hoping it's just the pressure in my sinuses blocking it off so we'll see how things go tomorrow and Monday. I can't go to the doctor until Tuesday unless I get off my butt and go today which isn't going to happen. I'm going to be super pissed if it's worst on Monday because I'm going to see Brian Setzer with Ariel. ♥ I'm so excited!! I wonder if we'll be the youngest people there. Or what they're even going to perform. I don't even know any of the new stuff. I don't care. I'm going to have to escape work about 10 minutes early so I can catch the bus and get to Harajuku before 6pm.

Edit 28592: The show doesn't start til 7, the doors just open at 6:30. That means I don't have to worry about rushing. And I found a seating chart: we're on the 2nd floor at the 2nd last row! DDD: That sucks!! I think I paid for the more expensive seats too? Maybe. I can't remember. I bought them in December and if I got such crappy seats, it means the show must have almost been sold out. They added another show tomorrow night for a total for 4 nights in Tokyo actually.

I just realized that the only album of the BSO I have is from 2000. D:

Man, I can't even tell if they are dancing East Coast or Lindy Hop. They're feet are so fast. I wish I had danced more... Kevin and I were actually pretty good. Hopefully he plans to settle semi-permanently in Vancouver (or he'll be there when I get back) so we can start dancing again on a regular basis. Though, I'm sure there's a swing club or something in Toronto as well. It's been a good 3-4 years since I danced, I think. :(

I've got my kanji test tomorrow and I'm going to review at some point today. I've reached the point where I am confident about passing and therefore don't feel the need to study anymore but there are still a few I don't get most of the time so I will cram tonight. Hopefully I'll have finished writing my present for [livejournal.com profile] oviparous who I think I want to make my new best friend.

The giant storm seems to have stopped, that's a plus. It looked like a typhoon this morning.

Got all my bank cards back (except for my RBC debit but I don't use it anyway). I can go pick up my gaijin card in 2 weeks and then I'll be right again. More or less. I feel incomplete without my driver's license even though it's not valid in Japan and expires on my birthday anyway. :( But this means I can get a better picture next time. :D

Justin just informed me that Becker's burger chain serves poutine.  I was talking to Ro last night about things I miss from Canada and I forgot to mention poutine.  They have 5 flavours but only one of them is really poutine, though the bacon & cheese one sounds good.  However, mentaiko and ebi mayo do not.  There's a Becker's outlet inside Kashiwa station and also one on my side.  I should go in and check it out.  For 320 yen, why not?  Justin said it wasn't swimming in gravy as much as he would like.  Which is ironic because they love to drown things in mayo here.
