more life~~  
Today was my only day off this week. ^.^; I am a bit sad... T_T After all the drama this past week with work, I'm itching for a real weekend. Two days off in a row. I won't get it for a while, though. This coming Sunday, though, I have Kimeru's concert to look forward to! And look forward I shall!

My roommate Rachelle is leaving this Saturday. She's going back to Florida. So we took today and hung out together. =^__^= Amazing. In all the time that I've lived here with her, we've never hung out together just on our own before. ^^;; Wah. So we hit up Kabuki-cho and did about 2 hours of karaoke, making both of our voices ache (I can sing L'arc~en~Ciel's Stay Away, but I can't remember more recent favorites like some Tenipuri songs, and even my beloved Poison by Sorimachi Takashi. T_T I can't read fast enough to keep up, either, though I will continue to try! I am happy that I signed us up for karaoke alone though!) Oh... and they had "Decide~First Gate" by Kimeru!!!! O_O Whoa, a non Tenipuri-related song of his! Sugoi! There were still no Tenimyu songs (Eda our plan hasn't worked yet! T_T) and for some reason I was so retarded that I couldn't find any of the Amuro Namie songs. O.o And I STILL an uncapable of singing Kinki Kids' Kanashimi Blue T_T But yes.. After a fun karaoke where I led with my TERRIBLE singing voice (I do no exagerrate.. but I still like to sing as long as you don't mind), I wanted to do purikura with her. We headed to Shibuya.

Rachelle has lived here a year and never done purikura. I feel sad for her. T_T She's also never tried to sing along to a Japanese song. She doesn't really listen to them, though, so I guess it's to be expected. ^^;; But after taking in this purikura, I think she's a forever addict. She loved it! XD GAH! I want to do purikura again with ALL of my friends!!!!!!! I'd forgotten how much it rocks! Eda! Erin! Let's purika!!!

Rachelle and I's purikura from today:

After that, we had mexican food at the Shibuya El Torito's, and had TERRIBLE service. I think the people near us were VIPs or something, because the waiters practically ignored most of the people in the area except for them. I didn't like it, though. I don't think that I'll go back there agian. I prefer the brance in Shinjuku or Ikebukuro. ^_^;;

We are getting a new roommate tomorrow night. It will be interesting. While thinking about it, I realized something.......

I have chibko training tomorrow (aka they are teaching me to be able to teach classes to 2 year old kids... >.>)..... So they moved my schedule to a late shift. I didn't realize until this morning what that meant.

I will miss Prince of Tennis tomorrow night. T___T GAH. The episode that I've waited HOW LONG for?!?! The episode that was practically MADE just for me!!!!!!! D: *cries* I set the VCR to record it and I hope it works... and I will promptly ignore the new roomie tomorrow and focus on that episode when I get home. And watch 800 times! Well, having it on video will be an awesome thing!!!!

I want to share a few pictures that I've taken with my cameraphone over the last few months and just not posted because I'm lazy. ^^;; Here they are!

This is the entrance to the street that has the D-Boys store on it... you can't read it, but the banner says "Fcuk".... Somehow that just seems appropriate. XD;;

This vending machine sells wine...... see it on the bottom? Uh.... I took this picture Christmas Eve. ^^;;;; So it's been resting there a while. ^^;;;

This is a neat display that I saw in Shinjuku station. I love how all of the papers strewn about are luminescent!!

The entrance above the door when we went to see the Prince of Tennis movie!

I just loved this sign that is by my satellite school.. XD;; That's some cheap service! XD

This was part of a bleached out menu that was next to the demachi site for Rock'n Jam. That's supposed to be chocolate cake on the top, but it looks more like charcoal. At first, it was really disgusting to see! :O

Come on... Engrish. You know you love it! This is from an import shop in Yokohama.

This was printed on the wall of a WOMEN'S public restroom. Inside. Next to the open URINAL. Let me repeat, this is in a women's restroom. It's actually really common to find urinals in WOMEN'S restrooms. Why, I have no idea. o.o (Maybe there it's for guys like Kime..? *shot*)

Kimeru's new single comes out tomorrow! (today, technically!) I will pick it up in Shibuya since I'll be up there for training! I can't wait to hear it! =^__^= I forgot.. it's been delayed.. T_T

And I am out for the night! *luvs on all*!!
Current Music: Kimeru - DECIDE?first Gate?

YAYAYYA! :D /Kikumaru moment spass/ Picture post~!

Singing is fun~ I don't sing very well either... but it doesn't matter.. cause it's so much fun!! ^^ So is purikura~ me and my friend made some today on the comp with a tablet... you hafta see ;3 We did a none-serious cosplay. 菊丸センパーイとリョーマちゃん。

I guess it's the restaurants loss if they intend to neglect all the other customars for regulars/VIP.

Though I hope the recording works out okaaay~!!! I'm rooting for it to work!! Cause it's soooo your episode X3~

Wahahah! Tea cattle!!! xD Love all the random engrish. <333 Oyasumi~~~!

EEEEH your pictures are so cute!

and it was YOU who had the pic of the wine bottle vending machine! that was in Shin Okubo right? I was telling somebody about it. I wanted to go there with Ko cuz wine from a vending machine is SO WaKami. XD XD

Tea cattle! ROFL! and I swear that choco cake by the Rn'J building looked like it was made of volcanic ash or something.

Ganbatte! FAITO. Today is my day 9 of 12 (o^_^o) I feel.. tired.

Remember, the good thing about the chibis is the moms come in too. and even if the moms just stare at you like you're a performing monkey and don't really help out, it's still better than teaching naughty kinders. XD;;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 22nd, 2005 11:53 pm (UTC)
Hehe.. yeah, that's the vending machine in Shin Okubo. =D;; XDDD It would be interesting... wandering around to find that again! =D

You're so cute. (;______;)
Whitney: emo!Tuti [Tuti]kashewmoo on February 22nd, 2005 11:33 pm (UTC)
Aww, cute purikura. XD;;

You are one lucky duck, being able to go see Kimeru in concert. XDD;; I was hoping I would be able to, since I'm coming to Japan on March 22nd to April 2nd with my dad, but his last one ends before that. ;_;
Chiakichiaki777 on February 23rd, 2005 01:58 am (UTC)
Purikura is fun, I have a few from the hey days... I haven't taken one in years o_o"

And the urinals are on the ground right? that's the common traditional Japanese toilet where you squat down to take a leak, but they're getting replaced by the modern type now... I am so not used to them.... compromising stature too... XP
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 23rd, 2005 02:01 am (UTC)
No... I know the difference between a urinal and a toilet ^^;; This is a urinal.. on the wall. The kind that only a guy could pee into.
Chiakichiaki777 on February 23rd, 2005 02:20 am (UTC)
now I'm rather disturbed....
REISU ♥_banana on February 23rd, 2005 09:37 am (UTC)
Hi ^_^

Found your journal through the tenimyu community. I think that for the last picture, it's a urinal for little boys? I know that some mothers out on their own with their young sons don't like to let them go into the toilets by themselves.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 23rd, 2005 12:49 pm (UTC)
That sounds like it's probably right. It does seem a little strange, though. ^_^;;
angeangelamori on February 23rd, 2005 11:43 am (UTC)
*laughs at the urinal picture*

Cryspirlantakelebek on February 23rd, 2005 06:26 pm (UTC)
What is a PUrikura???? IF you can... can you respond in my journal *LOL* I never check this commenty things till like days later! So I lose them!! I am really curious to waht it is too!
Jessraindancer_jess on February 23rd, 2005 07:32 pm (UTC)
Re: ?
I was just about to ask the same thing!

Karaoke sounds fun, maybe I'll attempt to learn a Japanese song or something so I can drink sake and make a complete fool out of myself.

I absolutely love the pics, thank you thank you!!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 24th, 2005 12:04 am (UTC)
Re: ?
PuriKura = Print Club ^_^

It's those machines where you take fun pictures and then you get to draw on them, and then they print out as stickers!!!!! <33
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 24th, 2005 12:02 am (UTC)
Re: ?
LOL Chrissy, you need to turn on the option where it sends you emails every time that you get a comment! =D I'll reply in your journal. ^^
shy_hinatashy_hinata on February 24th, 2005 03:03 am (UTC)
Hooray for purika!

And it is a bit weird that there's a urinal sign in a women's washroom. And you should totally submit that 'Tea Cattle' thing to www.engrish.com
I'm sure they'd love it!
