yay there was a mini gasshuku today. one of the mommies brought her baby girl (1 year 4 months) to practice too (mommy didnt practice but daddy did). it was oodles of cuteness and fun! i'm sooo gonna bring babies to practice. cept i'll actually practice too - how cool will that be? ohohohoho.
after the 100pm-400pm practice we had an awesome dinner at this place called hana no mai (hana as is flower and mai and in maiko). it was basically japanese cuisine and all the natives where complementing the freshness of the sashimi so you know it was good hoho. i ate a piece and i was like "yea i think this sashimi is the bomb, but you guys know better than i do so what do you think of it?" and they were like, "no youre right, this is good ass sushi." it was an awesome gathering. the kansai folks are all so jolly and they always wanna practice their english with me which is great because i get to use jp on them harharhar. i told them, "yea it's all good you guys. for all the parts you get stuck on in english just go ahead and use japanese, i gots it." then they were like, "man it's totally awesome talking to you lol - that extra mile i cant go you can understand my japanese so our bridges totally connect." and everyone was happy.
i played random elementary school girl hand games with one of the kansai guys lol. it was awesome we did it like five times today. [we did the mcDonalds one (big mac, fillet o fish, quarter pounder, french fries, icy cola, milkshake, sundaes, and apple pie... etc.)] it was tight. he totally memorized it too lol.
what else... it was raining cats and dogs today.it never stopped raining from early morning until... now. needless to say the river next to the apartment has swelled to scary proportions. i had a daydream as i passed it this morning where a small boy fell in and his body was floating down the river. then i imagined to jump into the river hero style and pluck his body from the churning brown rapids. i felt like a hero in my mind. of course this means everytime i stare at that river i have to scan it for bodies and dive right in when i see a kid floating in it - no hesitation. not like i want to see any poor kid in there or anything.
can you believe UNIQLOwas having a sale on polo shirts for 390yen a pop? dude, the exchange rate now is 104yen for 1 dollar, so you can do the math. it was a steal!!! so i got three new polos yesterday: M&M green, mustard yellow, and sky blue. it was a S T E A L!!! happiness.
yay laundry is done.
