And back to SoCal

Thanks to the pure magic that is Diana, I was able to check in early enough to get A26. Good stuff.

It was a lovely trip. Thank you Diana, Brandon, and Dana for having me and feeding me. I'll do my best to come back soon. And I hope to return the favor when you come to the other side of the Pacific. :)

And I'm on board.

After regularly flying 10+ hour flights, 1.5 hours is nothing.

Full flight. Filled my water bottle before boarding, got my window seat, secured my carry-on luggage space, and have my book and my iPad. I am good. Catch you laters.

I'm leaving on a jet plane...again

Heading up to East Bay to visit friends and my alma mater. Go Bears! Will be posting to Instagram periodically.

Also, there will be a three day break from Chicago pics, but I promise to make up for it when I get back.

Closing Ceremony

Not too bad, seat-wise. just a bit more time before it starts. And a Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man just stopped a mini Jango Fett who was attacking a Godzilla. And a kid named Mace just got a free set of movies and he's actually named after Mace Windu. The dad got a round of applause. Closing ceremony hasn't even started yet. Fun stuff.

In line for Closing Ceremony

Still got an hour and a half. But it's closing ceremony, so hopefully worth the wait.

We made the rounds of the booths. Got a mini Lego Millenium Falcon. Had a grilled cheese sandwich. Took pics in the Millenium Falcon. Saw loads of stormtroopers, Jedi Elsa (kickass!), and more male golden bikini Leias than female ones. Not bad.

Lego Darth Maul

Waiting in line to make a mini Lego Millenium Falcon.

We're here!

In line for the Star Wars Celebration. So many people with awesome everything.

Off to Incheon!

With one hour to transfer, I might not be able to post at Incheon.

Catch you on the flip-side.

At Centrair

Checked in and just chilling. I like this airport. It makes life easier.

Typically, I'm wandering around here, but today I'm sleepy as all hell. Just curled up on a chair taking micro naps.

I keep waking up and finding different people around me.


Still have over an hour to go.

Maybe one more nap.

I'm leaving on a jet plane

Headed back to California for a bit.

Trying not check anything in but I travel with paper in the form of books and notebooks, so my carry-on is heavy. Spent a good part of last night packing so I have a massively sleepy look on my face. This should be fun.

First it's to Kanayama then Centrair. Then to Incheon to LAX.

Here we go.

Happiness is

A relaxing lunch at a local cafe that uses fresh ingredients and has excellent service.

And art.

But first, hair! I went to my hairstylist to get a perm. My first ever perm.

My stylist said my hair was like Venom, a strong foe to battle. Extremely healthy hair that was not accepting the chemicals. I ended up with a bit less than I was expecting, but I still like it. Just a bit of a wave.

Baby steps. I learn to take care of this, buying some hair mousse on my way back to the house, then we'll take it up a notch in a few months.

As for the art, Samancha came over to my grandmother's for art days and we drew stuff. It was good.

At the Theater: 暗殺教室

What up with this concessions stand line?

And the staff member just went on break. WTF. Five minutes until my movie. Hmmm. Meh not to big on trailers for this one. Wait! Johnny's! Toma! 予告犯!

Well, I made it, but damn is Row C close in Screen 3. But I'm away from all the schoolgirls behind me. You win some, you lose some. Giant Masha commercial on the screen. That's a win!

Look what I reserved!

The Uroboros DVD box set!

Looking forward to the behind-the-scenes and the commentary. I expect much Toma x Shun banter.

Fangirling aside, it really was a good series. The theme song still haunts me.

Now I'm hanging out at a cafe until show time for 暗殺教室. Yamada-kun is so damn cute.

Then work. Four more days until pre-trip vacation time begins!

At the Theatre Turning Pages: ONE PIECE 77 before Jupiter Ascending

Today is Mel's entertainment day.

Got my ticket to Jupiter Ascending, got 7 books including the newest ONE PIECE (OMG) and now waiting until show time.

Got work later too.
