Moving on... or back. ^^ US vacation pictures. ^^  
Phoenix, AZ

This is my sister, Jennifer, and her first daughter, Katie. ^^

Multnomah falls in Oregon. ^^ We stopped there on a road trip.

Another tiny waterfall there. I thought this one was really pretty. ^^

My sister, me, and my brother. Wow, this is the first time that I think I've ever looked short. I'm about 6'1", by the way... Wanna know what my natural hair color is? It's a little lighter than theirs..

Me and one of my best friends, deltethnia. ^__^ This is in Kennewick, WA.

My best friend in high school, Jenn, and her husband. ^^ I still love her to death! Though this was the first time in 4 or 5 years that I'd seen her...

Me and Jen ^^ We are about the same height. ^^

Me and alsie. ^__^ Seattle, WA, in her home. She is my sister in heart ♥ It's amazing how close we are.

Pi!! ^__^ This is just outside of Pike's Place market in Seattle, WA.

aimaru proving that she can have fun! We had a blast together in Seattle! I'm glad that I finally got to meet her!! ^^

Alsie and I in Bellevue Community College, where I visited her classes for a few days. ^^

Als in Starbucks, on our last day together.. ;_;

Money money money!! I forgot what kind of money that was...

For some reason I really like this picture of me..

A random city on the flight from Seattle to Phoenix.

kawaii_gurl, aka Val. ^^ Thumbs up! We went to school together at AiPX. ^^

Soooo classy ^o^

I am so classy too.. XD

We look cute together!

I cracked up when I saw this!!! I made Val pull close enough during a stop light to get a picture of what was hanging on the back of his truck!! XD If I had a truck, I'd hang it on the back too!!

satanclaws, aka Ron. ^^ Ron and I go waaaay back. ^^

My favorite teacher in AiPX, Mr. Missal! ^^ And me. I really loved my time in college.. it was a great time in my life and I have a lot of precious memories from it. ^^

The blue sky in Phoenix.... this is something that I wish I could see every day in Tokyo..........

soundsoft_elvy eating soup... XDXD She actually posed for this, so it's not really real. =D She was my best friend in college and continues to be to this day. ^^

I look sexy? Okay, no I don't.. XD

Elvy loves alcohol! ♥

I posed for this.. I swear I did! ^_^;;;;;

Me, athenazandrite, and Elvy in the theater where we were about to watch She's the Man. It was a really good movie!!!

Elvy in Nav's room. ^__^

Athy and hitokiri_naveed. We were listening to the series of Real Men of Genius ads and laughing our heads off! XD

I look craaaaaaazy.. ._.

Nav at her computer. XD Where she usually is? XD

Love the smile, Athy!! ^-^ I miss her, Elvy, and Nav so much, we were a close-knit bunch. ♥

Elvy flips off the camera... sorta. =D Turn it a little more this way!! ^^

And here the 4 of us did a photoshoot to remember good times! ^__^

I had to leave Phoenix the next day.. ;___; I may not be back until late next year, but I will miss everyone there so much... ;_;

At the airport in Phoenix..... something like this has NO right being in a country where english is the first language.. I would expect it in Japan, but in America....?

This is my dad. ^^ It was the only picture that I got, so I'm kinda sad that it came out a bit bad. ^^;; I really enjoyed getting to spend a whole day with him. ^^

This is what the beach in Westport, Washington, always looks like..

This is my mom and me, the morning that I left for Japan again. ^^ She really likes this picture..

And some pics from Val's camera! ^__^

Val's boytoy, Al, posing with a shirt that just might be true... XD (not for me!) Why do I find a shirt like that sad? XD

So so true, Val!

I missed my cell phone THIS MUCH!!! ;_; While I was in America, it didn't have any service, of course..

Relaxin'! ^^

Alsie and Trey, I know that you guys took pictures!! Can you give me copies and I'll post them here? ^^ And anyone else that took pictures!! Ron? Elvy? Athy? Nav?

oh wow these pictures are AWESOME x3 I'm glad you have a nie trip bak there ♥!!
SatanClawssatanclaws on March 30th, 2006 02:50 am (UTC)
Well all the pics I had are lost since the camera got stolen *sighs* You still have that pic of us on your phone tho eh?

Btw, I'm still working on getting time off to come over, not sure when though. You still trying to get Kingdom Hearts 2 sent over or you find someone?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 30th, 2006 03:02 am (UTC)
Awwww man I forgot about that!! *hugs* I'm sorry, that is TOTALLY cruddy!!! (I still think that the tow guy stole it. GAH I hate car companies, they're SO untrustworthy!!)

Yessss, I want KH2!! Sorry I didn't reply until now, but I've been really busy. Just email me how much it is with shipping, and I'll send you the money through paypal if that's okay. ^^
SatanClawssatanclaws on March 30th, 2006 04:02 am (UTC)
That's fine, I figured you'd paypal me. =)

Since it just came out yesterday I'll see what places have it on sale this upcoming weekend and I'll see what quote I get from my work as far as shipping. I just asked a co-worker and they said for international shipments we get 50% off.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 30th, 2006 07:53 am (UTC)
Okay!! ^__^ And the price that you quoted sounds great!! ^^ Any chance you wanna pick up a few of my books and throw them in? Whichever ones, especially the manga though.. If not, it's okay it can wait. ^^

SatanClawssatanclaws on March 30th, 2006 08:17 am (UTC)
I can try, not sure how much shipping will be (books are heavy-ish) but I can try. When it goes through customs I'll be listing it as personal effects which are suppose to be exempt from custom fees. Hopefully, they aren't that up to date on video games...

If I did grab some manga (keyword if), which ones you want me to send?

Hi, I hope you don't mind me reading/looking at pictures... Looks like you had fun though. I realized you were really close to where I live, which is in Vancouver... 2, 3 hours from Seattle? XP

Oh yeah, btw, the money is Korean. I was flipping through and I was like... "Huh? Whoa~~~" (I'm Korean btw.) XD
