Whoa, culture shock O_o  
Ooooooooh baby.. <3 I did it. I feel so accomplished! Today I bought tickets for the Prince of Tennis in Winter musical! All by myself! <3 I went to a conbini and navigated the japanese menu without having to ask for help~~!!! <3<3<3 I am SO proud!! I bounced on and on about it today at work. <3<3<3 I had to show the tickets off to everyone, and then Hidemi (one of the japanese staff) told me about her Allegria tickets (to which I'm jealous of =D), and it was fun! ^^ Hidemi is so nice! Actually, they all are!

I have to say. I never could have done it without Eda's instructions! <33333 I'm so grateful to you!!!!! <3333 I'm so glad that I did this, because I feel a lot more confidence with my bad japanese, especially that I didn't have to ask the conbini staff for assistance!! <3 <3 <3 It was also due in large part to the fact that there was a girl in front of me wanting tickets also. So while she searched and searched and searched repeatedly, I finally noticed that she was inputting the same codes that I have, and I tried hard to follow what she was doing. When I got to my turn, I was able to navigate the whole thing and find tickets in less than ten minutes.. in screens that were almost completely kanji! <3 Wai! <3<3<3 (I had to match up the tickets after I bought them to be sure that they were the right ones XD) At the end of January I will be seeing Tenimyu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33333 Fangirl's dream come true~~~~~<33333

Today was the going-away party for a bunch of people at work. We met together at a local station (I had to come right from work, so I had to suffer in my terrible work clothes X_x), and then went to an isakaya. Most of the staff came, plus all of the japanese staff, so we had about 20-something people there. It was crazy! Somehow we squished all of us into one table in the isakaya, and oh man were we loud. ^^;; I was actually getting bored because everyone was drinking and I only had one little drink (ichigo calpis), but then a huge group of japanese people came in and took the other table in the room, and we kind of.. mixed groups a little bit. LOL, it got amusing at that point. I've found that it's actually pretty entertaining to be in a group and mix with japanese people. They'll attempt english and we'll attempt japanese and it's all amusing to find out that we have more in common than we thought. XD

So then the group migrated to karaoke. Apparently they hadn't had enough to drink, so the group opted for a 2-hour all you can drink special. ^^;; I don't really drink. It's rare for me to drink. But since I was supremely bored, I decided what the hell... I had kahlua milk....... and then they brought a pitcher full of it, and we squished 20-something people into a TINY room (the bigger one was broken..). So I had a few drinks.... but I hadn't eaten, and it was hot in the room, and I got sick. ^^;;;;;; It was fun, though. =D I bonded with Kazumi over the fact that I love japanese bands, and the fact that I've had such an interest in japanese culture beyond temples which is surprisingly rare in Nova staff. So yeah.. a room full of mostly foreigners, where there was standing room only, really, and then Dean comes running in and shouts over the music-- there's naked guys in the next room!

Winnie and I: O_o...? So a bunch of us girls ran over to the next karaoke room and opened the door on them......... and yep. O_o I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.......................................... Want to see a picture?

This is from Winnie's cell phone. They're VERY naked............ Beware, graphic nudity... O_o

See the clothes pile in the corner? O-o It was............... whoa. We were all giggling and running away, until they pulled Winnie and Crystal into the room. ^^;;;; I rescued them and one of the guys points to me and goes, "C cup!"........ O_O;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Yeah, he's right, but.. O_o;;;;;;;;;;; LOL we ran next door full of giggles. And later on one of the guys came in our loud room and took off his pants. ^^;;; LOLOLOLOL I was dying of laughter. Janet shooed him out and said "put on clothes you fucker!" in her cute Australian accent! XDD Then she turned back to us and *holds fingers an inch apart* "He was fuckin' tiny!" Apparently, also this naked thing is normal in karaoke. ^_^;;; LOL. It's..... disturbing? Nah, amusing. Eric and I were standing outside the room later to get some fresh air and the head naked guy (now clothed) came up to us and was talking. He was taller than me, XD. We communicated in a mesh of english and japanese, and when I asked him why they were naked, he said "My friend is positive." Me: O_o.... *is that what I think?* O_o... I asked if they were his boyfriends in the room and he said yes. I'm pretty sure that he didn't understand, but it will still pretty amusing. XD

So yeah... caught the last train home and now here I am almost wide awake ^.^;; and yet tired. But it was an interesting day. I hate alcohol... ^^;; But the -party was actually pretty fun. ^_^

I can't wait! As I told my coworkers (who for the most part don't understand my obvious glee), What could possibly be more entertaining than seeing a group of boys singing, dancing, and playing tennis on stage! =D

Yay! Tenimyu~! Loads of fun to look forward to!!! <3 *snuggles*

The work "party" sounded pretty fun.. XDDD from what I understand they do a lot of crazy things when out clubbing/to bars in Japan, so no big surprise if they do embarrassing or balant things. But the nekkid karaoke was hilarious, talk about really going to extremes!! Hahaha~! I bet they had loads of fun though ^w~
