Oh yeah, and randomly I heard an airline paging a Mr. Toriumi, which a rather unique name and happens to be the name of a seiyuu and it was followed by a page for a Mr. Sugita. I gotta wonder if it was actually them. It was one of those final boarding calls.
This made me want to play Vitamin Y, which I think I'll do after I post this entry.
Cost some cash, but now I'm laying in a bed and going to take a 3 hour nap. And thank goodness for my earplugs because someone brought in a crying baby.
Strangely awake despite having on slept from 11pm to midnight.
It's the travel highs.
My bag is much smaller than I expected and it's mostly gifts.
More space to bring back stuff from home.
Will make a few more posts before I leave Japan. Catch you laters.

Next week, I'll heading home for realz.
Good old SoCal.
Lemons from the yard!
TV! Castle! Bam! says the lady!
And the high desert!
Two weeks is short, but I'm glad to have the freedom that I do with my work schedule.
Life is good.

This name bothered me for days until I finally saw a commercial for the sale and remembered that Japanese people tend to pronounce "chic" as if it rhymed with "sick" and have limited recognition between "R" and "L".
Then factor in that "ur" can be mistaken for "er" and adjust for spelling.
What do you get?
It's a Jurassic sale!
I'm going to assume a connection is suppossed to be made from Jurassic to dinosaurs to big. And not to sudden, but inevitable betrayal.
Some of you may recognize the gold creature. It's a golden shachi. There are two that decorate the top of Nagoya castle. According to Lachic, the female one went on a shopping spree.

Well, my stop is coming up. Catch you laters.

Ooh, that reminds me, I need to make a list of what I'm bringing with me. Was just about to forget to get my cell from my grandmother's.
Doesn't feel like I've been gone for almost 8 months. First thing I'm doing, running after Chicago and givin e hin a huge hug.

Thankfully I only put in that kind of schedule on Fridays because my day starts at 10 on the weekend.
A friend mentioned yesterday that I look cuter, but when I said I hadn't changed my makeup or anything. On the way home, I realized that I have been laughing a lot lately because I'm back to listening to radio shows and laughing a lot. As a result, I'm also naturally seeing the world in a brighter light. So yeah.
I've been having more creative output. Also the idea of seeing Chicago soon makes me VERY happy.
So as much as my life is nowhere near stable, I'm good. I'm moving forward. And in the words of Jayne, well, that's something.

Especially since I spent the day sleeping in, doing laundry, listening to Mamo-1, and seeing the last Bones for a while due to Emily's maternity leave.
It was a good day. I almost want to do just night classes if I thought it work, but in the end, this schedule works for me.
Oh, and the second pic. Why are the white furry fluffballs of cuteness coming to Aichi right when I'm going back home? Gah! I wanted to meet them!

I'll enjoy it while it lasts or until someone destroys it, whichever comes first.
Got tomorrow morning off. Score! Evening classes until closing, but I'm going to enjoy sleeping in and getting stuff done.
Then a relatively full weekend. Yay.

On any other Monday, I'd be getting off work about now. But today's a holiday so I'm off to Meieki for the day. Might take the last part of the day off to pick up a few things. Or not. Not sure yet. Extra money would be nice since I'm taking the end of the month off and even if I have an empty schedule later, I'll still be in good company.
Two weeks! Two weeks and I'm back in SoCal. Yay! Looks like my dad is planning a trip to the desert and I already have plans to make plans with some friends. And best thing of all, Chicago!! My lovely kitty! I kind of wish he was the snuggly type, but I love him the way he is.
Okies, at work, catch you laters.

Doing these cards makes me feel like I'm reconnecting with my life.
So now I'm on my way to work. It's a full day today and tomorrow, but I'll be seeing some favorites and it's just two days. Monday's looking pretty skimpy. I can deal.
And I'm going home to SoCal soon, so that's cool.

I'm tempted to make Mac&Cheese when I get home. Part of me also just wants a baguette with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And another part of me wants meat.
Then there's the question of instant gratification or saving money. Nah, I don't want to cook.
There's one shot that I found from my recent uploads that I realized was from on my way to work. 6:30am. Beautiful blue sky.
I forgot I used to go to work after the sun was already up.
Those days will eventually return, but for now, it's DARK! and COLD! and maybe even some SNOW!
So last night, I actually got one other, quite silly thing done and that was finish catching up on one of my favorite shows. I got from May to the New Year in about 12 hours. Rock! And I laughed a lot. It felt good.
Anyways I might have the evening off and if that's the case, I can get a bunch of other stuff done. Like the New Years Cards.
