And i guess i could end up writing about the same days twice as i get my Canon pictures developed, but i don't think i will. At least those pictures speak mostly for themselves, whereas iPhone pictures need all the help they can get!
Saturday was the perfect, crappy rainy day.
We slept in, went out into the rain with our umbrellas to have a late breakfast, and then back home, in our cozy little apartment.
I had a super productive day of studying Japanese, painting and reading. Basically all i wanted to do that day! It doesn't sound like much, but i had a big old writing and drawing bump on my finger by the end of the day.
In the evening we went by the shop and picked up Hata so we could go have a rainy day ramen dinner, and after dinner Hata surprised us with a "ok, let's go paint the new shop", so that's what we did.
Painted, sanded and pulled down old wallpaper with our bare hands. The worst was actually putting masking tape under their new desks. You have no idea. So yeah, the writing bump wasn't the worst thing to happen to my fingers that day, getting wallpaper up under my nails was!
It wasn't exactly what we had planned for our evening, and i got so filthy i had to shower and wash all of my clothes when we finally came home (some of which will never recover fully... damn oil-based paints), but it was kind of the perfect way to spend our night anyway. And we did tell Hata to let us know when he needed help, anytime, so we couldn't complain!
We ended our night on the couch, watching a crazy UFO documentary that was really more of a deranged fan's interview with Dan Aykroyd. Good stuff!
My regular order: a BLT with egg and cheese without the bacon, and a small royal milk tea
After breakfast we went to the office supply store... i'll use any excuse to buy cute notebooks... any!
Painting tables, painting panels... the new shop is gonna be great
I've tried taking pictures of the new space with my Canon, but they come out boring as hell, sadly.
Hopefully that'll change around the time they open, so i can show you how rad it is.
I'll also be posting directions and stuff, for any readers who are current or future clients of Allan or the shop, just so you guys don't get lost!
Today i am meeting Crystal for some fabric shopping (in my case hopefully just looking, cause fabric is so damn heavy to take home) and later we're gonna meet Lindsay for Japanese book shopping in Shinjuku.
Pretty excited about both. Hope it won't rain.
I just got a film back last night, mere hours after finishing it, which always trips me out, so the next post will be all analog goodness.
Even i am getting sick of looking at grainy iPhone pictures.
I sure hope iPhone 5 (or the New iPhone, or whatever the hell they decide to call it, if and when it ever comes out) will have a better camera.
God, i'm demanding.
