1) Does anyone want to go see Star Trek in IMAX? I saw it once already, but there's an IMAX theater right by me and the movie was boss, so I'd kinda like to see it again, but bigger.

2) Does anyone want to go to Great Adventure sometime soon? I has a roller coaster craving.

Last time we left our heroes, they were really, really jet-lagged.

Day 2: Harajuku )

So I went to Japan.

I've been holding off from posting more than one-offs because I wanted to talk about the awesomest vacation of my life first, but I'm not sure what to say now! Maybe just that I had a wonderful time with [livejournal.com profile] utenatai, [livejournal.com profile] fanartist and [livejournal.com profile] elhermano, who was as cool as advertised. I'm not sorry I spent all that money and got laid off halfway through--I'm glad, because who knows when I'd have the next chance?

In some ways, Japan is nothing like what anime prepares you for. In others, it's exactly the same. My first bleary-eyed impression on the train from Narita to Tokyo was "the landscape looks just like Katamari Damacy."

I took a ton of pictures, so I'm gonna break the trip recap into a few posts. The italicized commentary is from a mini-trip log I kept for the first half of the trip. Kinda gave up after that due to busy-ness (or possibly being laid off and not wanting to write that.) Took enough pictures to make up for it, though.

So! Let's get this party started.

Day 1: Plane )

Day 1.5: Katsutaro )

Back from Japan and crashing after being up for about 32 hours.

This is what [livejournal.com profile] fanartist and I did yesterday. (No, they're not all mine. Shocking, I know.)

You could say I was drowning my sorrows, I suppose, but to be honest I think we would have bought them anyway. The salesladies at Mandarake totally wished they worked on commission.

This was not my idea.

But I fully endorsed it once it was suggested.

Anyone who thinks this wish was too frivolous for the shrine should check out some of the other stuff hung up there.

What also rules: running three miles through Ueno Park and then through the streets, watching people coming alive to start the day, and watching the kids heading off to school. (Adding a touch of Vienna Teng:s "Lullabye for a Stormy Night" only improves things.) My favorite was what appeared to be a high school boy on his bike, with his elementary school brother (complete with adorable hat) trotting along beside him.

The rule that drivers need to stay on a particular side of the road is more of a guideline, but in these streets, it kind of has to be.

...and my body has NO idea what time it is.
effervescible: (tiny but fierce)
Tomorrow I'm headed to California. Saturday we're headed to Japan to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] fanartist. SHLDASGHHDJLSAGDKASGDKAJSGD. Sooooo yeah...I won't be around for a bit.

Dear Self,

Gnomes are not going to steal your passport from its place in the document box while you sleep.

So I guess I'm going to Japan with [livejournal.com profile] utenatai, [livejournal.com profile] fanartist and [livejournal.com profile] elhermano.

Two hrs late and we're stuck on the tarmac indefinitely.

Well, that was a miserable flight. Time for home and the doctor.
effervescible: (Default)
And at last, we board. Gah.

3.5 hours to go before a 5 hour flight. :/

We just made an emergency landing in Denver to arrest a drunk and threatening dude.
