I love friends! <3  
Yesterday was fun mostly in part to some friends that I don't get to see often, and some friends that I see quite often. In general-- just friends!! =^___^=

I met up with Nita in the early afternoon in what was far and large the BEST weather that Tokyo has had in half a year. It was warm enough not to need any kind of a jacket at all!! Amazing. Lovely! I loved it! It was finally warm, and bright and sunny. Just gorgeous. <3 Nita and I went to the Chocolate cafe, which is fast becoming a place that I go often. Probably at least twice a month, actually. I wish that it was closer!! (not that I'm far from Tokyo station at all, but I think it would do better in Shinjuku). But anyways... they have this new banana chocolate filling that is to die for! <3

We didn't know what to do with ourselves until the musical that night, so Nita said that she'd been meaning to go to Gain in Shibuya for a long time and never gotten to. It'd been forever since I'd seen Takashi, so no problems there! I really miss the guy-- gotta go out drinking together again sometime! ^.~ So we schlepped to Shibuya and hung out while he was working for a little while, messing the shop up. Then eventually we overstayed our welcome with the nicest guy that I know (seriously) and went window-shopping.

Ugh, Takashi had let his hair get really long and terrible, so we made fun of the 'bakemono' look. XD;; Nita is rightfully scared!! ^^

Me with a mannequin in Takashi's store..

Takashi and I. He makes it too easy! XD;;

Cameron Diaz has been doing a lot of commercials for Softbank (a mobile phone company) recently, including this mind-boggling one. I can't understand the appeal.. Does anyone get it?

I guess in retaliation, Kamenashi (??) has been doing ads for Docomo. He's really popular and all over nowadays. I like the second picture, lol. I guess that he saw Takashi's bakemono. =D

Okay, now I have to admit that I really was excited to see this: The HMV in Shibuya was completely decked out in Death Note memorabilia and propaganda! As a huge fan, I couldn't help but stop and spend far too long gaping! =D

Including... a giant real-life-size Ryuuk!!! <3 It said on the card that this was the actual model used as reference for the CG in the movie. Accompanied with a Death Note of course! <3

Nita got this great picture... LOL this just wasn't my photogenic day I guess, lol..

As we were leaving I saw this display for The OC (season 1 episodes 1-3 just came out here) AGAIN. I love the OC. It's one of my top 5 favorite shows of the last 10 years, hands down. I was a huge fan, especially of the last season (no more Marissa, yay!!!) But I still can't understand this hideous ad. What in the world does this girl have to do with the OC? O.o;;; I'm also really amused that the trailer playing in this display included scenes with Paris Hilton when she was a guest star... which was in what, the 4th season??? ^^;;;;;;;; It's going to be years before that comes out.. ^^;;; But yeah. I really hate this ad, and I don't see how it's appealing at all.. Why can't they just show an ad with the cast? If I was this girl, I would be so embarrassed..... she jsut seems so out of place..

I kid you not. BEST engrish in the world. And the best thing is, it really does make your hair gLossy. So it works! Err, just not as advertised, lol....... ^^;;;;

I misread this hair gel as 'lube' when I bought it. I couldn't stop laughing. It lubes your hair? XD;;

Working the other day on my sewing project that I  mentioned before..

Right after I got my hair cut the other day... you can't see the color, but he styled it so shiny and beautiful... I wish that I had that talent ^^;;

So anyways.... at the musical, Nita and I met up with A-chan, M-chan, and Mamiko, whom I haven't seen for the longest time!! I really, really love Mamiko!! ^^ We chatted so much on the way back to the station afterwards, talking a mile a minute. I hope that she can move closer soon so that we can spend more time together!! :O Then, the 4 remaining of us went back to Shibuya to hit up TGI Friday's for a late-night dessert, which was fun. <3 It grew super-late, so we took a taxi back to my place and sort-of stayed up all night jooking around. Or rather, M-chan and I fell asleep off and on, but I think A-chan and Nita managed to stay up all the time.

LOL I'm still feeling the effects of staying up all night. I've got to remember not to do it if I can help it! ^^;; I always feel really groggy and lose a whole day (I can't sleep during the day no matter how hard I try). Yeeps! ^^;; I think I'm going to go to bed early tonight~~~

OMG! So many interesting photos this time ♥

On the 2nd picture I thought: OMG your friend has no head XD I had to look twice to get it XDDDD *baka dechu*

I´ve already seen that huge ad poster of Cameron Diaz, a friend send it to me. If I´m correct Softbank was vodafone once ?! ("__"')> ....

KYAH!~ I´m not the greatest Kamenashi fan in the world but this poster looks ... YUMMIE ! And *lol* @ his face expression on the 2nd pic ♥♥♥

*leaves out the Death Note stuff* <~ I haven´t read or watched it yet (T_____T) ....

+ *ROFL* @ gross hair XD are there things for "gross rips" as well ? XDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 27th, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
Yep! My cell phone contract is with vodafone, so you can guess my complete surprise when one month a bill came from softbank! They changed it without sending out any notices-- I was going to throw it out as some kind of spam until my friends mentioned the same odd bills and we went to their website and finally figured out that vodafone had changed into softbank without so much as a word! I guess we were just supposed to 'know' or something.. O.o;;

And your hair cute is super cute ^^ Oh that's right! You'll be seeing me with nearly all my hair chopped off lol.

And I cant wait to see your sewing project once it's complete!

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 27th, 2007 02:32 pm (UTC)
He's a sweetheart. ^^ But I'll invite him out to drink with us or something while you're here instead. His store is a little bit boring since it's mostly men's clothing and he's got a lot of things to do.

I don't think the DN display will be there anymore, but I'm sure that there will be something else fun instead! ^o^
~Elle~suthrnbellechan on March 28th, 2007 09:32 pm (UTC)
Yeh you're right abotu GAIN lol, having drinks sound slike a great idea. I still rememebr how cute it was hearing him say "Guten Tag" lol

Aww no DeathNote. But of course we can fidn fun things lol, we're some fun gals lol

*likes to take pictures, not be in them* but, it was really fun talking to him ^__^ And your hair is so red in the light in his store, ne~! I should really sleep, too... I don't *think* I slept until I caught my train, although I was kinda dazed for a bit in the middle somewhere (A-chan was like, why'd you stop talking? ^^;)

Ahhh, the many "flavors" of Cameron Diaz.


What the heck is Death Note? Paprika is coming out in the states sooooon!!! Yay!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 27th, 2007 11:02 pm (UTC)
You're joking, right? Death Note has probably been the #1 most popular manga/anime/movie franchise for the last few years. (while Paprika is barely known at all)

Wahhhh Mamiko, I miss her T_T

I saw you in Shibuya!
I knew it xD; I wasn't sure at first because you were a little far away, but I guess this proves it xD;

the colorful cameron diaz ad is for an ad of a softbank phone that comes in 23 colors :)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 28th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
LOL You should have come and said hi! =D

Really? I love colorful phones!! Maybe I'll get one when mine dies (probably not too far off the way I treat it). But I totally had no idea what they were advertising from the image, lol. That's too much Diaz for me! =D
chocoxberrychocoxberry on March 29th, 2007 01:49 pm (UTC)
mmm but you guys were on the other side of the road going the opposite direction to where me&my friend were going xD;;
if i ever see you again i'll definately say high tho ^^

btw, what day are you going to tenimyu? i'm going tomorrow :)
chocoxberrychocoxberry on March 29th, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
*hi o_o not high lol
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 29th, 2007 03:57 pm (UTC)
I'm going to the first show on Saturday. ^^ I figured that if I went then, I could spend the rest of the day sightseeing, since I never get out to the Yokohama area. ^^
chocoxberrychocoxberry on March 30th, 2007 12:55 am (UTC)
ooo, be sure to visit the chinatown! i've heard they have good chinese. :D (well, that is if you like chinese food)
akibare: なんだこりゃakibare on March 30th, 2007 08:39 pm (UTC)
Yes that actor is 亀梨和也(かめなしかずや), half of "KAT-TUN." He's been in a lot of TV shows.

As for the "pantone" phones - Vodafone turned into ソフトバンク, and as part of that, they did a rebranding and made a big deal of having some all-white stores. The stores are white only and handle only Softbank brand phones.

So. I'm not certain by any means (your photo is the only time I've seen the ad, don't live ANYWHERE near there :)) but I wonder if part of it is them punning on that. And, maybe they offer the phones in all those cool colors, I don't know.

"Gross Air" for the WIN. I'm showing that to my cubemates right now!

Takashi! I remember him! He took one of my fave pics of us together <33

And that Engrish is awesome XD That one really takes the cake in terms of what I've seen too.
