Yesterday, I met up with Grant and Andy at Grant's place and didn't get lost O__O! A great start to the day. We had been planning on going to Harajuku with Luke, but he had to cancel, so we decided to go somewhere none of us have been yet, Akihabara.
We had to stop at the local Stargate and make a pitstop at Atlantis, first.
In the right picture, Lauren is the yellow guy on the right, Shawn is the Green guy, I'm the pink one, and Beth ran away from pushing Lauren in. Jeremy is conducting the train.
Then we made it to Akihabara ^_____^!
This is really good, you guys. Whatever is happening here, it's really good.
The buildings that we went into had at least 8 floors to them, so when you enter one, you best be prepared for some stairs and exploring. When you leave, you feel like you've been in a ton of different stores and then realize you were in just one. It's like the Black Omen. We gained so many levels before leaving.
The Magic card shopping begins:
This floor was filled with figurines like Nendoroids and even figures of Mr. Saturn and quite of few of very promiscuous ladies.
When we go up a floor and I stopped and said, "Oh nOoOoo, Grant."
Oh yeah, and risked my life taking these pictures. Hey, it was on another floor. Different floor, different rules. Right? Wut?
So many statues and figurines. Like Sailor Moon! AwWWWww YeAAaaHh, giiIrRrRllL.
♪ I'm making a note here, huge success ♫:
Well, here's some Godzilla figurines. I took these for my sensei (teacher), Dr. Jones.
Grant and Andy had been talking about this Ramen place that they ate at a day earlier and how amazing it was. After looking at the choices in Akihabara to eat, we decided to go to Shinjuku to eat at this Ramen place.
In one of the stations, there was a bunny acting a fool:
The ramen place was really small, with one row of about 12 seats available to eat at. If you were to see it on the street, you would probably pass it up and think "Who. Would eat there. I'mgoingtoBurgerKing." But then there were these magicians:
Thank all that is fluffy and happy that they did because it was the best ramen I've ever had in my life. Hands, eyes, spleen, down. The best.
Andy lives farther away, so he decided to depart, so Grant and I of course went to local grocery stores to explore.
While in one, I had this strange feeling to check if I had my Passmo (Train Pass). I checked and it was gone >___<. It must have fallen out. I keep putting it in a pocket that is easy to access, but it's also the pocket I put my ipod in. When I take my ipod out to take pictures (which is extremely often as you probably noticed), sometimes the Passmo falls out without me noticing. I really have to stop that habit.
Since we had only been one other place besides the Ramen shop, we went back to the magicians. I walked inside and was searching around all panicky and the 3 magician ramen makers immediately knew what I was looking for and all said "Ahh!, Passmo?" One went into his pocket and brought my card out. Oh gosh. These people. I'm telling you. Magicians! And kind ones, too.
After that brief panic attack, Grant and I walked around Shinjuku a bit more.
This picture is for MoMo:
lolol, and this building is for Lumberjack Shawn:
Here's the haul (not including presents for several people):
And then....ho ho...
lolol, maybe one day. I think I'm set, though. This is really, exciting, you guys. I woke up thinking "Hey, I had some really great purchases yesterday." Well, actually this morning was more like "Coffee. I love...COFFFFEEEE."
Today was pretty much an ordinary day. Studying, Class, and Track practice. I increased the weight on barbell squats to 70 kilos, which is about 154 lbs. AwWwW YeaAhHhh, progress! Then, Wendy and Antony wanted me to show them some more moves, so I ended up training Yuuki, Wendy, and Antony.
It's really funny when we go to the gym now because Sou san and the others from track club do moves that I taught them now, like the Statue of Liberty. Oh gosh, what have I done? XD
Yuuki invited me to go to Disney Land with him and his hometown friends on Friday! Since we have off, I definitely want to go. So pumped. But first, the Halloween Party in Shimokitazawa on Wednesday ^___^.
