*Hug Rei and Hata so hard they shriek like little schoolgirls.
*Play Taiko no Tatsujin at Adores until my fingers bleed.
*Go shopping for pants at two in the morning at our local 24 hour Jeans Mate.
Jeans Mate is where i buy all my obscure Japanese brand jeans, the staff there is amazing and i shop so much better at night.
I can't wait to eat ramen, ice cream parfait with cornflakes, tempura and soba, donuts and ice coffee, croque monsieur sandwich from the cafe by the station, lots of onigiri for breakfast, sushi at Momotaro, Korean barbeque, 7-11 bean salads... i could go on, but i'm actually kind of hungry right now and this is not helping.
Japan is where i do almost all of my shopping, because i don't like to shop in Denmark, and also because Japan is where all my favorite shops are.
I think i'll do a separate post about places to shop there soon.
*Hang out with my girls Izumi, Crystal, Kaori and, hopefully, Ai.
Since Izumi quit Inkrat i don't see her as much as i'd like, but hopefully she'll have time to hang out a bunch this time and Ai just hinted that she might come to Tokyo, yay!
I love wandering the streets of Tokyo, and lately Yokohama too, without really knowing where i'm gonna go.
Oh, and if anyone reading this know of any fun things to do in Yokohama, please drop me a comment.
Allan has three sessions booked for his back, and for me that means three days of sightseeing there.
And i've seen a bunch of places there already.
*Hanami, it's the best.
This year i'm thinking of going to Ueno Park instead of the usual trip to Shinjuku or Kichijoji.
*Wakeup to the the sound of some idiot driving around in a car with a speaker on top, or just someone walking around with a cart and yelling really loud, trying to sell something to someone.
Tokyo is probably the loudest, most annoying, least Zen place in the universe, but that's how i like it.
It's something we rarely have time for here in DK.
And although i love having a dog, he doesn't always make it easy for us to just go out and do stuff on a whim.
But in Tokyo we can do that all the time. Just hop on a train to somewhere cause we feel like it.
Like this one day we where shopping at Tower Records in Shibuya (another favorite place) which we do often.
Anyway, we were at a Doutor cafe around the corner from Tower, looking a our purchases and reading Metropolis when i noticed that the Slackers were playing in Shibuya that same night.
So we went back to Tower, got a clerk there to draw us a map of how to get to the venue and we went to the show.
Stuff like that does not happen to us very often here.
Of course there's tons more, but i should get back to work now, them tubes won't scrub themselves.
Here's a few random shots from November:
Our street and our 24 hour supermarket
Denmark actually isn't too bad at the moment either (unless of course a good old gang war isn't your thing, but who doesn't love it when criminals run their city, right?)
I love my job and i love improving little things around the shop every day.
There's always something to do here.
And the weather is great, the show last night was really good and my parents missing bags are no longer missing.
And we're listening to Bon Jovi, i don't know why that's a good thing, but it is!
