On the train home: OMG Kasadera Station

For the first time, I was on the train side of the Gaishi Hall return home rush.

Dude!

To work, then...

To the Creators Festa, then to lunch, then to the bank, then to Hama for dinner, drinks, and Captain America. Also ink! at Bungbox.

A bit of a busy two days, but it promises to be fun.

Hama Time

Came into Hama to get my hair cut. No big change, but a world lighter. Not to mention the head massage and awesome conversation as always.

Also picked up some tea. First of the season and it came in today. Awesome!

And now having a very nostalgic panini lunch at Lolo Centro with an awesome view.

Going to the stationery floor after this to check out some pens. Then to Loft to pick up a correction pen for my grandmother.

Tis a good day.

Darklings has stolen my soul

Best/worst 100yen I've spent in a while. I can't stop playing. I love Lum. He's so cute. I even invested an extra 400yen to get extras and now the game is even more fun.

Basically darklings came and stole the stars and the light. Lum enters them when you draw the symbol on their heads and destroys them, freeing the stars. If a darkling touches Lum, you die. Big stars give you more time and you use little stars to buy stuff that'll make you stronger or just cooler.

Simple and addictive and I'm sure I've amused many on the subway with how animated I get when playing.

I can't stop playing!

Turning Pages: Ghost Hunt 悪夢の棲む家 2

Finally got my hands on it and I snuck a peek during my break. 15 pages in and I'm freaking out. So scary. Such good stuff.

I'm going to be stupid and read it when I get home. Past midnight.

Guess who's not getting any sleep tonight! XD

Another Monday morning

Sleep cycles way off, I was going to run some errands after work, but at this level of tired, I'm just going back to bed. Better for everyone involved.

Turning Pages: Deadly Heat

Coming up on the end of the season, I realized I hadn't read the most recent Nikki Heat novel yet. Time to remedy that.

Wind Advisory

So I'm on my way back from my grandmother's and I'm stuck at the station because of a wind delay.

As odd as it may sound, I miss this wind.

Costco!

I didn't care too much when it opened, but now I want a giant bag of frozen strawberries and snacks from the States.

Costco trip!

Want to go on a Costco trip!

But I don't have space...

When I get a new place...house-warming daiquris!!


Yeah, still sick and loopy from the drugs.

Strawberries!

There is something awesome about being given a small container of sweetened condensed milk and shown two rows of strawberries literally ripe for the picking.

To Fruit Park! Strawberries!

Whee!

Ooh, medicine head!

Thought I lost my runny nose medicine and was going to do without. Then I found it, took some, and the runny nose is gone, but I'm completely dried out and kinda loopy.

Perfect time to download Inception to keep me company while I fall asleep, don't you think?

Meh. Also: Pyramid of Frixion

Despite lacking sleep and now battling sniffles as well as the cough, I still spent an hour and a half at Loft. Bought some stuff. Including a cool book at Junkudo.

More on this later. Now, time to get to my bed.

Also: Dude, Frixion pyramid.

In denial: No, I'm not sick...

I just bought these medicated cough drops to be prepared...
As I pop one every hour.

Thankfully they keep the pain and coughing at bay. I just need to get through this morning and then I can go back to my bed, take a Nyquil, and pass out until tomorrow morning.

Must get better! Tomorrow is strawberry picking!

Headed home after a long, fun night

Agreed to go to a hanami after work, ended up walking around the wrong, but right building for quite a while, sat with a crowd I didn't really know, got rained on, went to a coworkers apt where the drinking continued, and made a new friend in the end.

All in all, a good night.

Fangirl Spaz: Why my grandmother is AWESOME

I just got a text from my grandmother saying some mail arrived from the TOKIO fanclub. One of them is a blue envelope (concert info!). She texted to ask if they were urgent.

I love her so much.

And this is also a sign my fangirling is at a pretty high level.

Wind chill!

And I had to wear a skirt today, didn't I? Meh.

Started a new project today and it's proving that ideas need to be worked out after they're brainstormed. Lots of things to figure out before I show everyone, but it should be good.

As for work, late night tonight and full weekend ahead.

After that, strawberry picking with a friend on Tuesday. Whee! Strawberries!

On the dot

I bought a couple of things at the store and with the newly implemented 8% sales tax, the total came to 500yen on the dot. Awesome!

And back to Nagoya

I know, quite unlike me to go somewhere and not blog anything. Didn't really even think of it, actually. Shocking, I know.

I visited Iwase Bunko and checked out a lot of books including an article draft written by Natsume Soseki himself on personal stationery. Kickass! It was damn cool.

More on this another time. Gotta head to work.

To Nishio!

Never been this way before. Exciting!

Though right now, I'm just waiting at Kanayama. :)
