diamondlife: (Catch up - tsukkomicons)
Shhh - [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground is asleep! We found each other at the airport mirculously easily - I was late, despite getting up at the time I intended, and I didn't even know which terminal to go to, but luckily I managed to guess right. Equally luckily, I had my passport with me, otherwise they wouldn't have let me in the airport! First stop was tea, second stop was hostel (we have a lovely twin room now, with actual towels and a DVD player [guess what DVD I put on? XD] and a toilet that you can't really sit on with the door closed, damn these short-legged Japanese people! XD).

Then we went to meet [livejournal.com profile] honeybeanlove and [livejournal.com profile] hirokura08 for lunch in Harajuku! It was absolutely bucketing down, so we abandoned hope of shopping in knock-off idol shops (there were photos that even I thought were too wrong to buy XD) and just went for dessert. :9 We would've had to wait another 2 hours to get into the JE shop, lol, so we called it a day quite early as Liz was understandably sleepy! And I haven't been the freshest daisy today either, as I got the worst night's sleep ever last night. I was about to go to bed last night, when my roommate in the dorm came in - a British guy, who kept saying "It's all good, it's all good" a lot, and honestly kind of rambled a bit like he was on drugs. After he switched the light off, I could still hear him muttering, and I heard him opening what sounded like a blister pack of tablets - I was like "Oh lord, is that the medicine that stops him seeing the little pixies? Or is it some crazy narcotic??" Plus, the bedding in the room was really noisy, and he kept moving around. I kept waking up every couple of hours at least - thought someone was touching me (at the side!) twice, and another time I woke up dreaming it was 7.30 and there was no way I was getting to the airport and how was I going to contact Liz and oh man, rubbish! But all my stuff was untouched and un-nicked - it's funny, I completely trust Japanese people, it's so safe here, but the moment I have to share with a British guy I start thinking he's crazy. XD

So, sorry the meet-up was so brief, guys! :/ Hopefully we'll be able to do it again, though - me ad Liz are gonna be in and out of Tokyo a few times, and then of course there's the thing I don't wanna jinx by talking about it, but thank you V!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

Hmm, I keep speaking Japanese when it's completely apparent there's no need. It makes me feel like a show-off, though a lot of times I am a show-off, which I'm not proud of. (Whether I'm loud or quiet, people still don't seem to like me/get me/want to be my friend/whatever - except the people I don't really care about one way or the other, haha!) Still, at least today, a lady spoke *back* in Japanese, even though she could probably speak English. It's still only the unimportant stuff, though! XD

Donna said the typhoon is coming. x_o It was all over the TV this evening too! *fears* Tomorrow we're going to do a niiiice indoorsy museum, and some shopping. :D Gotta also fit in kabuki and Hakone! And also get to a post office, and hopefully meet up with the guy I met on Koya-san too! @_@ And we're leaving on Thursday!

...Did someone once tell me Liz laughed in her sleep? Because she totally does. XD

Huge K8 national tour, you say??? Well then yes, I will be attempting to do everything in my power to go to one of the shows! Oh my lord, I keep getting giddy thinking about the possibility. Long way to go yet, love, but other people have done it, so I really, really hope I can be competent enough to make it work!

Had a lovely megane weekend with Liz and Pez! Muffins were made, hedgehogs were purchased, tentacle monsters were vanquished. Hooray~! And I don't feel drained of all life force any more, which I still did until partway through yesterday. The bad thing about tha is, though, it means I have to go back to work. Boo!

I made [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground and [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio watch Heat Up last night (in celebration of the Kyocera Dome concerts XD I was there in spirit~!) and I realised again, it really feels like Subaru's show, I think - he sings brilliantly in it, looks pretty good (except for that... moment at the end of Osaka Obachan Rock, that we will never speak of again *shudder*) and he even gets to do the talking bit at the end, where he thanks everyone. I know I'm biased, but I love that we get a chance to hear him talking pretty seriously - not on crack, not being eccentric, not being emo - just talking honestly. I wonder if anyone's done any kind of summary or translation of what he says there? Though I guess most of it is just "thanks, everyone" and all.

Some advice to myself, if there was any chance I might take it: be patient with yourself.

Had a great weekend with [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio, [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground (and [livejournal.com profile] lina_lau yesterday) - ate loads of delicious food, went to loads of cool shops, bought loads of those ridiculously shiny overpriced magazines - and a great time was had, barring one problem.

My laptop won't switch on.

So I'm out till further notice. (Well, I'll probably be able to get online at work, but yeah. Happy bunnies. Happy bunnies.)

I wonder where I put the receipt? It isn't where I thought it was. Not that that matters, cos they'll be able to trace it if I take it back to the shop, but yeah. *crawls off*

I hate when someone whose fic you really like turns out to be a bit of a wanker, really. >:E Ruins the whole experience! It's like when you find out someone who writes really good fic breaks up an OTP of yours - always makes me a little sad...

Admitted defeat on [livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge for the time being and begged for some extra time. I simultaneously abandoned this stupid sex scene that's been dragging me down for too long - again, for the time being. I'll be back, boys~! When I've, you know, written the rest of the story.

I did half of each of the two things I meant to do this evening - does that count like completing a whole one? ^^'

Only two more days till [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground is here! :D Yay!

My head hurts, and I've wasted a good two hours this evening just out of sheer workshyness. ^^;; I did watch up to ep 4 of Mukodono 2003, though - shame there doesn't seem to be any more available subbed, cos I was kind of getting into it. For the record, it has Nagase as another idiot, but this time he's also an incredibly popular and hot idol, who's a huge bouncy dork in real life. Then he meets a sweet girl and marries her (all by the end of ep 1!), and the following eps involve him trying to get her family to accept him. It's quite sweet, really, and Nagase is indeed very hot as Sakuraba Yuichirou, but the whole set-up was a bit rushed (ep 2 began with them waking up and him going "Oh! We're married now!"). It seems to be some kind of redux of the original Mukodono, which also starred Nagase as Sakuraba Yuichirou, the stupid idol who married into a girl's family etc etc. I've only seen the first ep of that, and I have to say I do prefer the 2003 one, on available evidence (put it this way: piles are never a good plot device *shudder*). Will probably end up dl'ing more of it, though, for obvious reasons. *cough*

I should've had a shower in the time I was bored in this evening! Any extra time in bed in the mornings these days is invaluable.
