Catching up part 1... Tokyo Anime Fest etc.  
I've been so busy that I haven't even had time to write.. aaaah... Everything except for work has been falling apart, though some of the pieces are trying to mend themselves slowly..

Wednesday night I got home from work. I guess techinically it was Thursday morning, since it was after midnight!! That day, I had a recording session for my TV show, and then right after that I hopped over to the dentist. I think that I'll be seeing a lot more of this dentist! They're great, and general japanese dentistry is so cheap!! Although of course I want aesthetic dentistry, it will have to come later since that isn't covered by insurance. After that, I headed out with Adrian and caught up, since we haven't seen each other in a long time.. I got home around midnight...

The next day, Friday, I woke up super-early to start with my first volunteering session... More about that in the next post, since it's connected! But I spent the morning cutting vegetables and making new friends, and helping out with various tasks. It ended up being a lot of fun!! I went straight from there to Tokyo Anime Fest, so that I could speak to a few people. They had left early, so I ended up chatting with the surprisingly present Otakon table. Some more friends made, and I heard a lot of interesting gossip about mangaka. The only real experience that I have is my old friend Noda-sensei, and of course Konomi-sensei, so it was interesting to hear how other artists do it!

I had to leave straight from there to meet the editor of the US version of The Prince of Tennis.. She was so nice!!! We had a nice dinner in Shinjuku courtesy of VIZ, and again I got home somewhere a little bit after midnight.. And I will continue with Saturday's activities in the next post!! (busy busy! ^^;;)

Sorry, my little handheld camera is on it's last legs! ToT I want a new one....

Totoro looms over all..

Although, I personally found this more disturbing.... And yes, old ladies were taking pictures with BYG.. ^________^;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Please somebody remind me why this is becoming an anime again??? I didn't know that anime was popular with the older lady demographic..

If she sees this, I know someone who will enjoy this!

WHAT? So, what is this??

AND what is this?!??!


Haha, my job is everywhere..


The very very delicious salad that was part of my course dinner ♥ Mmmm, edible flowers belong in every salad!!

Signing out! For the time being, at least.. I'm completely exhausted..

So it seems that even though you are stressed at time you are able to get some down time and that is what you have to look forward to if you are too stressed out.

Wow, there are a lot of things in there that deserve the "what is that?" note. I do love the giant Totoro! *hugs him* And the PoT poster made me giggle, it looks like Ryoma is trying to reach out to grab the writing. lol.

Wow, Pretty Cure has way more characters than I remember... ^^;; I guess that's what I get for only watching the first season!

Pretty Cure instills my inner pedophile. The girls are so cute, and also a prime way in making myself look terrible in offering my 4 year old niece Pretty Cure merchandise that I happened to be carrying around.
