I really don't know what to say today. It was really, really cold. I thought about posting another story from my past, but instead I'd rather ask a question:

Yeah looking at the weather it got as cold down there in Tokyo as it is here in Niigata 0.0. Just be glad you havn't had it all week! I'm so looking forward to going to Tokyo tomorrow niiiight~~

Absurd stories? Nothing huge sticks out in my mind, I can only think of short incidents. Seeing a unicyclist pass by my while at a stop sign in my neighborhood walking home from school, staying at a love hotel with friends, accidentally walking into a Star Wars promotion and getting my picture taken with storm troopers, having vegemite licked off my belly (not proud of that one..), randomly modeling for a school magazine without knowing it first.

Oh wait I got one. I have climbed to the top of Mt. Fuji with a group of other exchange students. We spent the night near the top before going on in the morning. All of us had to pee, but that high up, there is no plumbing. There were "toilets" that were apparently just holes in the ground in stalls. It was so cold the boys apparently couldn't pee, and the stench of the toilets was so bad I had no desire to use them. So I had a friend keep a look out, walked up the trail a bit, and peed on Mt. Fuji. Yep, left my mark on it forever. Sorry Japan~ ok that was no where near as cool as your story but all I got for now!

Movie: I love movies. My favorite of all time is Labyrinth.

lol, I read this while listening to the Labyrinth Soundtrack XD

Is that your toes in that picture? They are super long.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 24th, 2010 04:18 pm (UTC)
It's actually my fingers ^^;

My kinda funny-after-the-fact was when I was moving. I had a box in my arms and couldn't see where I was going. My foot got caught in the dirty clothes (aka a bra) laying around, and instead of putting the box down and untangling myself, I hopped around on on foot trying to get it off. So naturally, I tripped and fell flat on my face. And I ended up breaking 3 bones in my foot. That was the worst 3 months of my life!

great meme... heh, I may steal it ;)

curious to see if you are involved/going to the Tokyo Anime Fair... Getting reports from the guys at ANN, since they are there, dunno if you go in for that stuff. Interestingly when I see stuff about Tokyo, I think of you, because of your photographs...
ShadowNiteWolfshadownitewolf on March 24th, 2010 09:15 pm (UTC)
I need to fill this out but wanted to say that we both have the same middle name =D

I'm actually named after my mom who's Lindley but Lynn I like <3

And you like wolves too! ^__^

I love this meme.
And if you like tropical places, what about Okinawa? Isn't that sort of tropical??
As for absurd stories... At Fanime 2007 (an anime convention in San Jose, CA), my friends and I were wandering around late at night, bored, when we saw some guy sitting by himself near a curtain. Curious, we approached him, asked what he was doing (guarding the curtain, so people wouldn't walk through it because that was the exit to something) and then we decided to sit down with him. Only we were on the ground and not on a chair. We then forced him to tell us about his day, but in a story format. After that, we yelled at people to join us and tell us stories. I think a few people joined us and they probably thought we were drunk. But it was pretty odd.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on March 25th, 2010 02:33 am (UTC)
LOL wtf.

Andas for Okinawa. It's sub-tropical, so it actually gets cold (unfortunately). But the problem is that it's not Tokyo, same as Hawaii is not Tokyo. Unfortunately. One day far enough in the future, Tokyo will be a tropical country (yay global warming), so I look forward to that day and hope it comes while I am still young enough to wear a bikini.

I could go on and on about random stories my girls and I have experienced, though probably not as epic as your karaoke story. At Anime Iowa, one of my friend had been drinking (not too much, but... enough xD), and I was with her at the hotel's bar (drinking as well), chatting with two voice actresses (one of whom had also been drinking with us). At some point, my friend snorted while laughing, and I explained to the voice actress who was drinking with us and found her snorting hilarious, that my friends and I used to count how many times she'd snort during our hangouts for lawls. She was excited to take part in this, and in the end, within 5 hours or so, we made said friend snort over 100 times. And that's just *one* thing that occurred during that time period. We also had mooners, "amazingly erect nipples", con police swarm, and a few other things. Most of these things, my snort-laughing friend doesn't remember. xD

I must steal this meme when I'm less lazy XD

Tropical places!! I would love to live in Hawaii too. I've got a few friends who live there, and I'm so jealous. They go walking around in shorts like... mid-September. But it's so hot in the summers!

I'm also not so good with the whole humidity thing. >< It makes me feel like jumping in the shower every half an hour. T^T
