Today seemed to be a day for canceling lessons so I took advantage of that and closed everything that was open. Not making much money at all, but sometimes taking it easy is more than worth it.
It's been a busy few days in the family and I'm grateful to not be at work where I have to put on my work face and then overthink it during my down time.
Got three lessons tonight then two tomorrow morning, but with no breaks, so this is good. Then my regular days off start so I can take care life so I can start living it.

Sleep is good.
This week is a bit of a short one, work-wise. Today's a full day but tomorrow's a half day then it's off to a K8 con in Shiz. For reasons too long to mention, I took a long amount of time off so I'm dropping by my grandmother's too. Then back to work Monday afternoon.

My four titles for the week are:
-Ghost in the Shell (the 1995 film, been meaning to watch this for years and I just finished the first S.A.C. series, which was awesome, so I figured I should see the first film)
-Ironman (somehow missed this one when I came out)
-Ironman 2 (see above)
-Lilo and Stich 2 (just because)
Just when I was relieved I was over my cold, I got that tingling in my lip yesterday that made me dig out some medication that kept my last one at bay.
Thanks to the medicine, this one isn't too bad either. It doesn't stand out and already feels like it's on its way out and.
Took a pic for future reference just in case I need more and can't remember the name. I was surprised at how small it is, but it works, so no complaints.
Alrighties, off to grandmother's house I go. Rockin' some rainboots and a jacket, but the rain kinda stopped... Oh well, still rockin it.

Also this CoCoIchi has outlets for charging and will even lend out chargers. It's also a 24-hour store. Awesome.
Only unfortunate thing is this store doesn't offer as many drinks with the morning curry as the Sunroad store. I had a mango lassi on Friday. :)

I've already used some of the methods and they totally work.
The next step is make your own skins, but I have an inability to roll out circles. Pre-made skins for me.
Though I may try to make my own chili oil.
This book is also making me want to go on a gyoza trip. Try the famous places in Tokyo, then make my way up to the holy land of gyoza, Utsunomiya. Of course I'll neet to visit different stores in Hama as well.
I'll even make a gyoza blog to document my gyoza adventures, both in the kitchen and at gyoza places across the county.

Over 40 minutes of the guys on a boat in the middle of Tokyo Bay in the middle of the night, eating, drinking and babbling on and on and on.
It was truly awesome. TOKIO at their finest. I'm not writing any more because I can't even begin to describe the awesomeness of this DVD from a fan's perspective.

Biggest task: Clean my room.
From the end of September, around the TOKIO concert, I've been going non-stop and the state of my room shows it.
I'm debating my day after work today. Probably just go back to the house, start the laundry and make some soup. Ooh, and translate. And color.

It's getting darker. It's still light when I leave the house, but when I wake up, it's dark. Not DARK! just yet, but dark enough.
The cold has subsided to a cough. I'm hesitant to say I'm better simply because the last cold I had ended with a cough that lasted for weeks.
Just gotta be careful.

Now I'm just waiting for the train to head back to Nagoya.
I was going to head back earlier, but there was a Masha interview on TV. I can't say no to that voice.

I think I've found a personal Meieki morning fave. It's a bit out of the way, so it's not as crowded as the cafes in the station itself. They have a wall of coffee cups, so I assume I'd get a different cup each time. The coffee's on the expensive side at 450yen, but the morning set of half a slice of toast, a boiled egg, and some yogurt with blueberry sauce and a slice of mandarin orange is free.
And everything was practically perfect. The light golden brown of the toast with just the right amount of butter. The cold, yet perfectly boiled egg. The balance of the plain yogurt and sweet blueberry and mandarin.
Oh yeah, and the coffee was pretty good too.
Totally plain in every way and in no way a hearty meal, but just right for when you know you need to eat.
Alrighties, Shink's about to leave.
