Star Wars, Japanese real estate, and D-BOYS live tickets!!  
Awww, I'd forgotten that Star Wars Episode 3 is coming out here soon! (I wonder when...) Wada just wrote about going to the screening premiere a few days ago with a few of the other D-Boys. There's a picture of them with someone (he jokes that it's their manager) cosplaying as Darth Vader. XDXD I love Star Wars!! Ahh, now I have to go look up when it's playing and go to see it!! (plus I wonder if I can sell the movie pamphlets for a markup on Ebay.. hmm)

So the apartment hunting was good today. My realtor couldn't speak much more than a word of english so it was pretty hard for me, going to look at the apartments! (I'd had someone from my office with me to translate when we were at the agency) LOL but he kept telling me that he'd be my japanese talking practice, and he actually was REALLY patient with me and eventually I was pretty comfortable talking to him. I took videos of the apartments (all 2) that I looked at, and I'm really leaning towards this one where the rent is only 50,000 and it has a LOFT. (wow!!) It's beautiful! Small but beautiful!!! The area is so-so, but the real problem is that it's 37 minutes from Shinjuku by train. -_-;; However, it's about 2 minutes from the station. Literally right down the street. Mmmm, it's a real possibility, this one. I'm supposed to go look at some more sometime, but they haven't called me back so I don't know. o.o Soon. (I would get it almost automatically if it wasn't so far away.... It's twice as far as I am now, in the opposite direction. It's really close to work though.)

BTW, I know so much about the realtor now that I was in a car with him for HOURS. XD Like, he is a big fan of QUEEN and Bruce Springsteen, but he doesn't understand the lyrics at all. And he was shocked that I said pretty much every person in the US knows who Queen are. I mean, come on.... how can you not? LOL Nobody in Japan realizes that Queen was ever that big. Even if you don't listen to them, you know who they are at home. XD And nearly everyone I know back home can sing "We will rock you!!" I tried to explain what that lyric meant but I think I failed miserably. XD I fail the "translate easy song lyric into colloquial japanese" test XD. And he said I was lying when I said that Tokyo had lots of smog. He was like 'it's just smoke, and fog...' Riiiiiight. LOL and driving back we passed by GAIN so I said my friend was the manager, and he was all like "eeeeh? That's so cool to have a shop in Shibuya! You have amazing japanese friends!' LOLOL..

I got home to a notice that I have to pick up something from D-Boys at the post office after 7 today. Wah!!! MY TICKETS FOR THE LIVE ARE HERE!!!! YATTA!!!!!!!!! *waits impatiently* I will update with happy me and pictures of me loving the tickets, I think, after I pick them up. XD Gee, I only ordered them what.... 3 months ago? Something like that..

PS- I got photos from my mom in the mail today. My sister's first baby is getting really cute! :O And my brother looks all wierd and 19. X_x;; And Rachel's mom and one of her brothers were in the background in one of his graduation pictures!

Oh, and I couldn't pay for Nagayan's BBQ thing because all of the banks that I went to (4!!!) were closed and it was only 3:30! wtf??? I dunno what to do, I'm supposed to do it by tomorrow (Or Mon, not sure if it's 10 days from when I get the email or 10 days from application..) and none of the banks are open on weekends except for the ATMs. (VERY VERY VERY inconvenient, this city sometimes often is.)

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2005 10:54 am (UTC)

But I thought it's fairly obvious, I live in Japan right now. (since it says so on my user info and on most of my posts in some form.... o.o)

Yeah, it's so stupid about the banks here. They close at 3pm and the weekends. But like hello...people work during bank hours! I don't understand why they don't have them opened longer! It's so frustrating...same deal with the post offices!

I got a notice from the post office about mail from D-Boys too. Hopefully its the tickets and not a notice saying my money is being returned. I'm waiting for the postman to come right now and re-deliver it. I think I've gotten the knack of calling in for same day re-deliveries now...after getting so many missed packages notices in jan. and feb.

good luck on the apt. search. hope u can settle into the place u like best.

LOL sometimes you don't want to live too close to your work .. but since it's the nicest one yet.. Good Luck anyway in finding your new home ^^
on star wars *am amused*
forgotten that by now most of our release date for movie would be the same as u.s date so was wondering 'why so late' before remembering why *cough* -piracy not that it's working as well as it should-

Wayne's World is what introduced me to Queen XD

You're moving? =O Well, I don't think 30 something minutes to Shinjuku is that bad. Is it somewhere near Mitaka or Chiba?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2005 12:20 pm (UTC)
Near Chiba... I work around Ojima station on the Toei Shinjuku line so we're looking in that area.

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 24th, 2005 02:14 pm (UTC)

YEY =D Sounds like you had lots of fun apartment hunting! Also yey for tickets and getting things in the mail <3 It's always good to get things in the mail, especially if they're like updates!

Also I'm sure you'll be able to figure out some way of getting the money for it!! *HUGS* Things will work out! You'll see *snugs*
Chiakichiaki777 on June 24th, 2005 04:16 pm (UTC)
It usually comes out in July, I know this because my uncle always took me to see the new one when it came out. Even if I've seen it in America XD.

Same with Terminator, all spring movies come out in the summer over there.
