Thankfully my MP3 player has Mamo's new album on it.
I get to recharge my soul and feel better about life.
Then I can face being a reflection of myself for another 5 days. Something that looks like me but isn't. It's all just for show and I can't forget that. These people, for the most part, are there for themselves. They probably could care less, but not much.
I've become too comfortable. Showing too much of myself.
It's all a show. And I intend on putting on a damn good one. I need to learn my lines and put on my mask. Make myself seem as perfect as possible. Fool them. There are those few I can let in, but most are there for the show.
And the show must go on.

The limited first edition with the DVD. Along with a clear file and a pic from Animate.
Must show one of the girls at the house. I inadvertently turned her onto Miyano Mamoru. Not just the hotness, but the dorkiness too. She loves his Koi no 32-rensha. Managed to find the event online. Now she likes him even more. Score! And she's gotten her friend hooked. Double score!
And now off to Hama!

Also tomorrow I have my first proper trip in Japan since I got here. That trip to Ise last month gave me the travel bug and now with a Tanabata trip to Tokyo and another Restaurant Week excursion in the plotting stages, life is good.
But first! To get through work, then get myself to the bookstore for a guidebook for tomorrow.

Right now is cool enough but I'm still sweating from my mad dash down the hill. Doing that in summer is going to be hell.
And using all that energy has made me sleepy. Meh.

Right now I'm thinking of going to Tokyo for 2-3 days and going to about 4 restaurants. If possible, I want all of them to have been on Gochi.
Another Tokyo trip means I need to rethink my plans for July. Nothing's going to stop me from going, but I will probably split my plans between the two trips.
Summer is going to be so much fun!

It's nearing the end of the season anyways so I didn't have my hopes up for today, but it's gorgeous!
I have a chunk of time off tomorrow, so I think I'll skip out and go to one of the parks in the center of town.
Also, totally unrelated and Facebook people have already witnessed it, but I just found out Japan has Restaurant Week. Twice a year. The next one's in August. Cue spazzing.
It's just enough time to do a bit of digging.

I'm in Nagoya this week so when I finished work this morning, I had a morning at Fujiya, bought a shawl at g.u. because it's way too warm for the gunslinger coat, and headed out to Aratama-bashi.
Put my stuff into a locker and ventured out toward the river.
First impression: A gorgeous and quiet stretch of cherry blossoms.
The river changes faces as it goes up stream. The trees get younger and the sides of the river are different. It's fascinating. As well as the sheer size of some of the carp. Ginormous.
I'll try to be good and upload photos from today and from my walk along the Tempaku River on Saturday.
