Out of it

I'm so out of it. I took Friday off for Elle who came down and spent the day before flying back to the States yesterday. I'm glad I just called Tatsuya directly, instead of the office (and the real boss, Mr Oishi) like last time. He didn't guilt trip me or anything. He was a bit concerned whether I would go in on Monday which was kind of sweet. He was only worried because he's coming to watch me during 3rd period. FUCK. I don't even know what my schedule is for next month. I hope to god it's not a 1st year class. All that needs to be said is this: 2nd and 3rd year are almost done chapter 2. 1st year has barely started chapter 1. It's been 2 months. What the shit. I'm holding my breath.

I didn't do much of anything yesterday after Elle left. I burned some videos, watched some videos, deleted some videos, played some FF4, napped. All around good time. It's muggy and nasty out there again today. Not approved.

I'm going to call Alison at noon (8pm in Van) and catch up with her. JC actually stopped by my parents house with donuts like he said he would! ♥ I love my best friend! The whole crew was there too, even Sean! Mom's probably going to write me and say, WTF.

Does anyone know of an .mp4 video trimmer? 13 episodes of Merlin will not fit on one DVD, only by a couple mb and I'm not havin' it! I want that shit all together! I downloaded some random one but the gay trial would only let you convert 50% of one file. Help?

So, I went to get my nails done again.  My nails grow super fast.  So I wanted to go get them filled in but she ended up doing them all over again.  She gave me a 10% discount because they had grown so much in only 2 weeks, but I still had to pay 6,600 yen.  Shit!  I went for a slightly darker pink this time so now you can actually see the gradation.  I feel so girly!

So the next time I take money out of the bank, I'm going to be dipping into my savings.  I am putting myself under house arrest until pay day except for Andrew's birthday next week.  I love how I suggest a quiet hang out dinner at home and it's turned into a huge outting.  I should have just made the plans myself instead of asking for opinions.  This is what happens when Blake takes the helm.  I talked them out of doing nomihodai (who the hell is going to drink enough to make it worth it on a Monday except for Andrew?) but it's still going to be 3,800 or something for dinner.  I am kind of bitter because I didn't even spend that much on my own birthday and no one organized or paid for me.  Correction: Really bitter.  So I'm giving myself a budget of 20,000 yen until next payday.  I bought some more cereal and milk so breakfast is covered -- I have coffee at work so I shouldn't buy any on the way to work.  Lunch is covered.  It's really only dinner I have to worry about.  I should take a good look at what's in my kitchen and plan to use what I've got.  It'll have to buy less and use things up and I've had for ages.  What can I use soybeans for?  I should check my Cooking Navi.

I'm reading Fast Food Nation right now.  Super interesting.  I wonder if it's going to ruin my love of McDonald's forever.  Although I watched Super Size Me and I was alright after about 2 weeks. 

Picture from the other day:  Kumi and I reunite after 10 years!  I was stalking people on Facebook and seeing how so many people I used to work with or go to school, or even from childhood, have gotten so huge.  Like, I shouldn't throw stones because I'm not the smallest girl but it took me a while to even recognize them, they'd put on so much weight.  Fuck losing the wait, if I can maintain what I am, I'll be happy.

I wrote an email to mom and dad today and updated them on the move home/school plan.  I'm kind of weirded out by the fact that I am hoping to get into U of T or York so I can live at home for a while.  I've been out of the house for 6 years now and only seen my family about 2 weeks once a year on average since then.  It's not so much that I miss them... I mean, I do, but it's more like I feel kind of guilty.  I know mom wants to fix up the house to sell it (eventually) but dad isn't home that often and she's tired from work.  It's probably about time for me to repaint the basement again.  And I don't think the living room has been done yet either.  I know the biggest reason that I hate Ontario is because I don't have a social network there.  But once I get a job or get back into school, I'll meet people.  I'm not too worried about that.  Or I'll take up a hobby or something.  I found out how to get certified by the BC Teacher's College if you study outside the province so it's just a matter of getting it transferred and then finding a job in BC.  What I'm scared of, though, is going to school in Ontario and getting stuck there.

I want to go through what everyone's been doing today (it seems like everyone's updated today) but I just got back from helping Anna move to her new place (so nice) and I need to go to bed. 4 hours of sleep! I had 5 lessons today as well and went straight from work to Shinjuku os I'm pretty pooped. Might explain why I'm a bit dizzy (or maybe it's the contacts). I think I've got only 3 lessons tomorrow but I start first thing all week and that sucks balls.

I want to avoid comms until this flailing about Ashita no Kioku subsides. I got the video and I like the song more now, I will conceed. I think it's been said a million times already, but I really like the concept of the video. I want Ohno to paint a pretty tree and swing on my walls. But I still think the song is nothing special. Where's the Muteki video! I want that one.

I'm up stupidly early on a Sunday and that makes me sad. The crows were at it again but it was probably a combo of them and my internal clock saying that it's time for work, don't be late! It would have been a perfect morning to finish my laundry if it wasn't rainy and miserable outside. My bathroom is in desperate need of a workover... I am going to steal some cleanser from work tomorrow and try scrubbing my tub. There's some kind of black buildup on the bottom that isn't mold because it won't go away with my mold cleaner. I want to know what Ben's mom used to attack their toliet because it was sparkling when they left and you don't even want to know what it looked like before.

I'm meeting [livejournal.com profile] aeslis in Shibuya later today to sell some stuff at Mandarake. I thought I would sleep in until noon and then not even leave the house until 2 but it seems like I'll be ready to go by noon or 1. Haha And then! I'm meeting an old classmate at 5:30 for dinner. Kumiko and I were in middle school together. Or maybe it was high school? In Singapore. She moved to SAS and then I went back to Canada. She went to university in Hawaii and she just moved back to Tokyo. I bet she's got a wicked accent now. I'm so excited to see her!

[livejournal.com profile] happenstanc3 did this kink list thing and I wrote something for her. It's really shitty but it's something. It took 45 minutes and I didn't even get to the happy ending. Maybe I'll do the list too; it might help the creative juices.

Okay, I copied everything into word and I have to pare a list of 388 down to 100. This is supposed to be common tropes/themes in fic? I want to see this somewhere:
3. Aliens make them have sex (fuck or die; fertility rituals; intoxication; taking one for the team)

Congratulations to Yuka and Yuto! I wish you health and happiness for your new life together.

What a night. Wow...

I'm kind of reeling. It wasn't even my wedding. Haha. It's just a huge shock because this is proof that I'm really an adult and at that age where my friends are going to start getting married and buying houses and making babies.

I don't even know what there is to say that will be of any interest to anyone here... Haha. It wasn't what I thought it would be like, for one thing. Maybe it's a Japanese thing? I thought it would be more like the wedding receptions you see in the movies: a sit-down dinner with speeches and stories from the wedding party and then dancing afterwards. Not even close.

They had the ceremony and small reception earlier that day (they played the video of it at the party, so I got to see it even if I wasn't there) with family and close friends. There were only about 50 guests. This party had at least 100 guests, all friends from work and school of the bride and groom. There were a dozen tables set out in the hall with food and drinks and a few chairs lined up against the walls. There was a table at the front of the room for the bride and groom and screens on either side where they had a slide show of pictures.

The happy couple arrived at 5:15 and there was a big toast and then a slide show about each of them: when they were born, where they grew up, etc. But not really about how they met or their relationship, which is what I expected. Even though they got married, it was still like they were two seperate people. Yuka sang a few songs, there were a couple games, there were a shitton of photos taken and then by 7:30 it was over. The bride and groom said good-bye to everyone as they left, thanking them for coming, and gave us a small gift of candy. Short and sweet and simple.

The only people I knew there were Aya and Yuito, Yuka's brother. They only knew me so we stuck together the whole night. I hardly got to talk to Yuka at all--only for a couple of minutes and there were other friends around too but that's how I found out she's pregnant! All these girls were touching her stomach and she was like, "I'm 5 months, but you can't hardly tell right?" That's how I found out. I didn't even meet her husband until I was leaving.

I have my own opinions about this whole situation... not all of which are positive. Yuka looked gorgeous and really happy and she's a strong woman and wouldn't (I don't think) do anything in her life that she didn't want to. But all the circumstances and just the rush of it all--I don't think they'd even been dating for a year yet and the fact that she's 5 months pregnant--makes me think it was a shotgun wedding. You can't help but think that way. When I talked to her at New Year, she sounded like she just wanted to get married, needed to get married, not necessarily that she wanted to get married to him. I don't know. Maybe she was just being modest about her relationship and didn't want to gush about it.

Anyway, I really hope they'll be happy together. She's due in October and I'll still be here so I'll get to meet the baby. :D I'll be an auntie! And now for some pictures:

Afterwards, Aya and I left and ended up running into one of her aquaintances at the station. Chinese guy from Richmond! We chatted for about half an hour and exchanged numbers. I'm all about making new friends these days. Then went to Nichome and met up with Andrew and Ben for drinks. It all went downhill from there... too much too fast. But they said I looked pretty. :)

I am free!

I am out of writer's block!  For the moment, at least.  I won't have time to finish it in the next 15 minutes before going out to meet Ariel and Justin and I doubt I'll have energy after getting home.  I might not even have time if it's late.  I have work tomorrow so it' shouldn't be that bad.  I should have gotten up earlier and worked on it.  My phone doesn't regonize today as a substitute holiday so the alarm went off at 630.  And then I woke up and heard Love So Sweet...  I kept thinking, "Is that me?  Is that my iPod or something?" but it was actually my neighbour guy getting ready for work, listening to music with the window open.  Actually, we have very similiar tastes in music.  But it was only 745 so I went back to sleep and didn't get up until 1130.  Ooops.  What a way to end GW: dinner and karaoke. :D

The sink is still full of dishes and I do not want to clean.  I should so that I will be more inclined to cook tomorrow. 

I need to get a card for mother's day.  I forgot about it even though it's written on my work calendar and my planner but better late than never.  I don't think Sean is going to do anything.

Ali, I bought a calling card!  When are you free for a chat?

So, everyone's been getting these things and I am nothing if not a sheep. I think I've said that before. *coughbabyficcough* Anyway, we'll see how this goes. I'm just going to have to get used to the new commands and stuff. I'm still making things pretty. Everyone is going to be confused because I changed my name. Now that I've done it, I don't know if I like it. It's (also) a regular English word now instead of something with a shitton of vowels. Whatever.

Maybe I should take the iniative to make an Arashi fic community before someone else does it and does it wrong. It's something to think about. But there isn't quite the numbers to support it yet. It would be nice to be able to snag Kotobayori for it before anyone else. It would be nice to have something that works already set up when things really start hopping around here.

Ahhh Elle just went home an hour or so ago. It was a nice visit. I think this has been the most cooking I've done in ages. I made daikon stew, carbonara, bruschetta, mushi-pan... I was a regular housewife. On Sunday we went to Asakusa to be a little bit toursity and meet up with Andrew so he could take my speakers to Hawaii. Then we met [personal profile] aeslis and had good fangirl times. I did end up getting buyers guilt after spending ¥4,000 on doujinshi. All the small sized things I got weren't really doujinshi at all. Elle's samurai series was good but very much unfinished. We don't know if there is any other volumes out there, but the last one was written in 2006 so... In any case, we spent 2 hours today hashing out the story from what I garnered from my rough translations and making up an ending. Which means another epic samurai fic coming your way in the maybe-not-so-distant future. It was a huge pain to read... the author was obviously going for a kind of historical feeling by using kanji for everything but it makes it fucking hard to read. Who actually knows what the kanji for なぜ and ここ is anyway? Well, I do now.

What's the rest of the plan for Golden Week? Well, I'm not meeting Sho tomorrow for karaoke after all since he injured himself in a soccer game on the weekend. Andrew and Blake are in Hawaii, Justin probably has tons of dates and I don't know if Ariel even has time off from work. I think I'll just stay in and play Animal Farm Crossing and try and write some of these prompts I got from people.

I just spend the last 2 hours talking (actually talking!) with Chrissy and oh my god, I've missed him.  I never realized how much I did until today.  I don't think I'll ever find a roommate as good as he was.  I didn't tell him enough.  Ahh... it was great being able to catch up.  I need to do that with Heather too and definitely Alison.  It took a few tries but we finally figured it out.  I can't use video but the mic works just fine.

I've got my 2nd load of laundry in and 1 more to go.  I cleaned the toilet and should slosh some water around the bathroom and wipe down the sink and tub.  I might just put off vacuuming until Saturday so things are in top shape.  I just want to lie in bed with my hot water bottle and binge: it's the first day of my period.  And it's actually on schedule which in itself deserves some celebration. 

So much for writing last night; I watched 西の魔女が死んだ finally.  I cried at the end, of course.  Makes me want to go visit Yamanashi prefecture.  Now I can free up that space on my HD. 

All I've eated today is yogurt.  It's time for a trip to the convenience store. I think I will try making tamagoyaki with the rest of my eggs.  Hopefully the 3rd time is the charm and I don't get angry at them. 

I've finally gotten the hang of Nintendogs.  I kind of want to get a copy for myself now. 

Holy crap

I might get to meet my ex, my first ex, this weekend. He's in Beijing on business and might be here at the end of the week for some work conference. I can't believe it! I haven't seen this boy since grade 9. It's been about 10 years. I don't think of him as an "ex" (and certainly no capital letter) since we were pretty much just friends the whole time, even though we did date (technically) for 9 months. In grade 8 so it didn't really go far. We didn't even get to kissing! He changed to local school so we had different school holidays and when he was off, he would go back to see his family in Thailand so we only got together on weekends. And then I got busy and he really liked me more than I did him, so I said let's break up and we went our seperate ways. Stayed friends though which is good. He went to university in Illinois but I'm not sure where he's living these days. Last I heard from him, he was trying not to get killed by his girlfriend's dad for taking his baby girl out. Ahah. How time has flown. I hope things work out and I'll get to see him for old time's sake. We can reminice about Singapore like I haven't done in years.

And now it's time for bed in hopes that I don't have a near miss like I did this morning.

Ariel's recital was amazing. I regret not having my camera to video tape her. Just amazing. She's a pro. Not that I know dick about playing the violin but she was the best performer there, even better than a violin instructor. Her pianist was really cute too. XD I hope she has another recital so I can go and tape her playing.

We went to visit Anna in the hospital afterwards. She's staying at St. Luke's International Hospital in Tsukiji. It's kind of trippy because in Sujata Massey's Shimura Rei series, the protagonist's cousin works at St. Luke's. So I've know about it for a few years and now I finally went. She was so happy to see us! Apparently no one else has come to visit, except for her mom who flew in from Dubai (where she lives?). The diagnosis is an e. coli infection of the kidneys. From sex. She passed out at work and was running a fever and has been for the last three days or so and she has to stay until Thursday. We brought her like 10 books to read and I gave her the moogle I made, which she loved. :) Fingers crossed that I never have to be hospitalized because she has to pay 30% of everything, I think. Which is like 250$ a day, just on the room. Insurance, what a joke. Anyway, hope she gets well soon!

Tomorrow I might go to Zara to look for a dress for Yuka's wedding. Or a nice top but I kind of want a dress. I don't have any dresses that I can wear everyday. Justin wants me to go to Laketown, since he doesn't want to come down here but maybe I can talk him into it. Although, it is only 290 yen and 30 minutes to get there.

I meet up with [personal profile] vintage_belle and [livejournal.com profile] capncosmo today in Ueno. We went around the park and got picked up by random Japanese boys. I gave the hot one my number so we'll see if he calls. We did a bit of shopping, eating and karaoke. Good times! When I'm not so hurting for money, I'll make a trip up to Tochigi and/or Maebashi and we can be nerdy about JE there too. I will watch Yatterman before then so we can discuss is it in a pseudo-academic fashion. XD

I'm watching AAA finally. I bought it days ago and I'm just watching it now... I should have just waited until pay day to buy it for that matter. I'm not even halfway through but I have to say, Aiba did better than he did on the original recording of Hello Goodbye, I think. And man are they ever fit! Running around that stage, which is huge from what I am imagining. Makes me want to get off my fat ass and go for a serious run. I really love this version of Subarashii Sekai. :)  I am trying to spot Tatsuoki amongst the backup dancers.  I don't even know if he was one, but it would be so cool to be able to point that out to everyone.  What I wouldn't sell, give, cut off to be able to stand at the top of the National Stadium and look at the Tokyo skyline like that. It stirs butterflies in my stomach just seeing it on my TV. I kind of wish I had taken a serious interest in music. I want to know what the rush of standing in front of those thousands of people who came to see you.  I got a taste of that once in university when I was doing first year orientations and jumped up on the stage of the Chan Centre to help teach the faculty chant.  I didn't even have a mic either.  I guess I'll just have to be satisfied with having mini concerts in my living room and the karaoke box.

I just realized I managed to grab 5/6 of the purikura we took. And they are surprisingly huge.  But not actually all the same size.  I think the emailed ones are the smaller ones.  I'll remember that for next time. 

We needed more planning of our poses. :/ )

I'm hungry again.  Already?  I guess it's 10:30 and I didn't eat lunch.  Okay, back to watching the concert. :D

I got a lot done today... I should clean up the kitchen so I don't invite any friends but I am too stuffed to do anything.  I really am thinking of just lying down and passing out.

I met up with Tomoko and we exchanged gifts.  She loved the book I bought her!  I was worried she might have already bought a guide on Singapore but I figured she would have been too busy to do that.  She bought me a furoshiki in Kyoto, it's cream with rickshaw-carrying pandas on it!  So cute.  I'm going to wrap my tissue box in it. :D

Met Ariel for lunch in Ueno and we caught up.  She was in NYC for the last two weeks so we updated each other about our love lives, or lack there of.  It was gorgeous and warm out so we walked around Ueno Park with coffee.  The cherry trees are starting to bloom but it's still a good week or two away from being really good.  We must make a point to go after getting back from Korea.  I'm afraid they'll all be gone by then.  Then we went to karaoke for an hour and sang angry songs.  I tried 曇りのち、快晴 and Joe Inoue's 幻.  曇りのち is actually really hard to sing. D:  It doesn't help that I don't really know the second verse well (at all).  幻 is really enjoyable to sing. :)  Ariel likes all my music choices and wants me to make her a mixed tape.  I'm totally going to try and convert her to Arashi.

I tried doing shabu shabu but steamed for dinner.  It was a mild success.  Instead of having a pot of dashi and cooking in it, I wrapped everything together in foil and dressed it with dashi and soy sauce and steamed it.  It was... alright.  The meat all clumped together and the mizuna was over-cooked but otherwise it was tasty.  I made ponzu sauce to go with it too.  It was slightly on the sour side but tasty none the less.  I wanted to make mushi pan tonight too since I got cinnamon...  Ighf  I'm so full!!  Though sitting down probably isn't doing anything for my digesting.  I want to read Lydia's new chapter but I want to pay it my full attention and I can't do that with my food-induced coma.  ごめんね。

I watched My So-Called Love last night, finally.  I didn't really like it.  It was so artsy and I hate art films.  I don't want to have to think or infer what's happening/happened.  I want to switch off and have everything spelled out for me so I don't have to think.  Barbie didn't pissed me off and there was even some gayness but otherwise... I didn't really get it.  Some of the translations were really wrong too.  I've been noticing that more and more lately, even with Japanese dramas.  I really wonder why some translators do it the way they do.  Anyway, I've watched it so I can delete it now and free up some disk space.

Sho's new AU commercial is out.  I thought he would bust out the ペラペラ English since there is a white dude in it but it's him being all tour guidey for the boss.  I downloaded it for his face at the end.  The phone is pretty butch too.  I like it.

God I really hope it isn't TMJ.  That's the only jaw problem I know of (and still can't bring myself to google) but I don't want to have any chronic issues more than I already do!  :(  I really hope the doctor is helpful because I don't think this can wait a year until I go back to Canada (and then some while I get my fucking health insurance reinstated).  It's really hurting more today, I think.  Why did this happen so suddenly?

I think Nino sang Orion better than Mika.  I love the er hu/piano duet.  Too bad it's such bad quality.  Maybe someone else will have a better rip of it soon.  You should check it out. :) 

Got an email from my relative who is living in Lithuania about her trip to Egypt over New Year.  It didn't go very well. :(  I should send her an email during a free at work today.  And I want to write postcards.  I should send all the ones I don't like (haha) and clear them out so I don't have to throw them away when I move next year.  I'm still waiting for Kevin's letter.  He hasn't sent me one since ... I can't even remember now.  That's how long it's been and I'm sure I've sent him 3 in the interim.  So much for being a good penpal.  I haven't heard from Alison lately either but we've talked a bit on LJ so that's okay. :)  Maybe I'll write Heather even though I just wrote her an epicly long email last week?  I just feel like writing on paper for a change.  Does anyone want mail?  (AhemLydiacoughcough)

I want to see the new spots about the NYCC!  They haven't started to flood the internet yet although I think it was on Mezashi-なんとか TV today.  I wonder when they returned to Japan.  I should make sure I watch Zero tonight to see if Sho's there and if they report on the NYCC although I think that must be too soon?  Although news shows are a different breed.  

Dumb and Dumber are back from Cambodia/Thailand.  He said he bought presents!  I'll have to wait until Friday to get them though.  Is it only Monday?  We have a holiday this week so there's no school on Wednesday.  So stupid.  Why don't they move it to Friday and give everyone a long weekend?  

Send me email.  I don't want to be bored at work.  I accept fic. :D

I met Satsuki for dinner in Ginza tonight (kind of a dumb idea cuz we can't afford anything...).  It was great to see her, she looks exactly the same.  We talked about old friends, what we're up to these days, her run-ins with Johnny's and music.  She's on the job hunt right now but actually wants to sing.  She played a couple of her songs for me and wow.  She's got an amazing voice.  I really hope that she gets a chance at a record deal.  I want VIP seats and to be able to say I know someone famous. :D

I figured out what to wear on my date tmrw.  Black button-down (possibly black sweater, depending how cold it is), jean cut-off skirt, purple tights, black flats.  I wish that it was warmer so I could wear my new green coat.  It's not big enough to wear my fleece hoodie underneath. :(  I guess I have to stick it out until it warms up to wear it.  But it's so prettyyy~~

Last session of Quiz Show tomorrow~  And it's Aoki-sensei's class so it will be enjoyable.  I think?

Happy new year~ I feel like I haven't slept in days. And... well, I kind of haven't. I have been home for a total of about 4 hours in the last 3 days. It's been a ride. I'm exhausted from sleeping on people's floors. I'm dizzy and sick from lack of sleep so I'm going to doze while I was a load of laundry. I haven't checked Livejournal in 2 days. I'm afraid of how many posts I have to wade through. But I have to do it tonight because I'm going to HIroshima tomorrow for 3 days. When did I decide to go? About three days ago. Let's start the new year by spending a ton! I got home and I thought I would have more nengajo but I only had 4. Two from students, one from Sho-kun/Japan Post (I'll photograph it later) and one spam.

I need to pass out for a while. But I feel great. The year of the cow is my year! It better be good.

More coherent update later.

It's later. I didn't really sleep but I don't feel like barfing from being tired now. For a while. It's 9 and I haven't even started packing yet but I've been angry at LJ because for the last hour it hasn't been loading. I want to write some kind of though provoking post but I think I'm not in the mood now. No, I'm a liar. I will. But first, a year-end recap:

That's just what I can remember/wrote on my calendar. That's a pretty substatial list, I have to say. I'm going to do this fic meme that's floating around about what I wrote this year but I don't have the time right now. It's 9:40 and I still haven't packed! I'm out of here at 7:30 tomorrow morning. There goes any writing I had planned to do today. I've been replaying the scene I'm working on in my head constantly trying to figure out how to get to the next part. It's hard. :(

OFS Reunion

New layout for Remembrance Day. :D

I met up with some old friends from OFS today. WOW! It's been about ten years since I saw those girls. They've kept in touch with each other but I haven't... I've talked to Yukiko a bit on Facebook but I lost contact with Saki after she left Singapore after grade 10 and I don't think I talked much to Yuka. Wah....

We met up in Shibuya and went to a cafe and chatted about what we've been up to and remembered about old classmates and teachers. My memory is terrible! I didn't remember Saki until we were eating. She was in my math class in grade 10 and she was in love with Sho. That's why I knew the name Arashi when I looked up Nino after watching Letters from Iwo Jima, because Saki would write "I <3 Sho" all over her math notebook. She had short hair before and I've never seen her wear make up so it took a while to click. She left early because of work. I didn't get her number... maybe I'll stalk her on Facebook. My memory of teachers and classmates from OFS is really shitty.... I don't remember a lot of people! But it was great to see who they still talk to. It doesn't seem like we are still close with that many people at all. Next time, we will have a reunion in Singapore. For sure! I've decided. Before I leave Japan, or on my way back to Canada, I will go to HK and Singapore. There are many flights between HK and Canada, maybe it would be cheaper than going from Tokyo. Hmmmm something to think about. Gotta start saving.

While I was going through and updating my iTunes and adding album covers, I googled Brian Setzer and found out that the Brian Setzer Orchestra is COMING TO JAPAN. And I GOT TICKETS!! I didn't even hestitate once I found the website selling them. If I'm dating the boy by then, I'm taking Andrew. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

It's still early now... Whenever I come back from Tokyo it's nearly midnight so I just go to bed. What should I do? Work on [livejournal.com profile] je_holiday. That's what. But I'm too excited about these tickets and the talks with the boy today. I think... hm. Let's not jinx it but progress was made. :D If only now we could match our schedules.
