jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Oh hey, look who is online again!? Yup. That's right. ME!!! *happy dance*

Which isn't to say that I haven't exactly been without internet connection since I last posted in the warm lobby of the Hilton Seattle where I was enjoying Sakura-Con with some fantastic friends and making new ones. I've had internet......on my blackberry (aka Shige-Dex). I just haven't had time to make a post!

So what's new/happening/exciting in my life in the past two weeks?

I'm so glad you asked! )

So. How are you doing this fine spring? :D Less hectic than me, I hope. One day soon I will actually comment on your posts! Promise!

OMG! *____________________________* I am flailing so, so, SO much over them. It's...just....yes. SO MUCH YES. WELCOME BACK TO KOREAN MUSIC, BOYS. :D :D :D:D Not that I don't adore their Japanese music. But if you're gonna come back to your home country with the aim to show that FOUR Daesangs was not a fluke, this is the way to do it.

The adventures of jemz and mousaPi (ie. the grand adventures in fail)

YAY! We are safely landed in Japan. Not much going on yet but we had a lovely time gabbing with [ profile] ilanabean42 and her friend, Meaghan. Then we met up with [ profile] alissa at their terminal while I was on the phone with [ profile] bloodybrilliant. We passed her around like a h0 (which she totally admits that she likes) and said happy goodbyes to Ilana, Meaghan, and Alissa before heading over to our own terminal.

It was just enough that we didn't have to wait too long before boarding our own flight to Tokyo. It was fun. The flight was long and we tried to sleep. Key word is try. But I have swollen ankles to prove I made it through the pressurized flight and every time I glanced over at mousaPi, she would either do one of the following: wiggle in glee, say whoo hoo, or stare like hamster at me and then looked away. I think her guinea pig has been giving her lessons in staring. :/

"Watch out, jemz. I'm going to be watching you from outside your capsule." states MousaPi who's sitting next to me (reading over my shoulder).

Big words from her. But it's really cute how she's so excited to just be in Japan that it fuels my own excitement! We made it through the immigration, customs, currency exchange, and the ticket counter for the Keisei Skyliner only to be balked at the cell phone counters. I did not want to go to the fourth floor of the mall to slap more money on the pre-paid phone I borrowed. Oh well. Maybe in Akihabara we will find a store and get that handled. :D

Our adventures have started and I'm looking forward to the next 10 days, both of ultimate coolness and utter fail. MousaPi already has a head start. She made some random Japanese man trip over his feet. :D Way to go, Pi.

Anyways, Ryohei-top is out of batteries. More to come when we arrive at the futuristic Capsule Inn in Akihabara. I feel strange things will be occuring tonight.

Okay, so my battery died on the Ryohei-top. But we're at the Capsule Inn now and up on the top floor in the women's lounge trying to get internet on our laptops. Sadly, we are currently failing.

mousaPi wants to say we're alive and I just want to check my email. I miss everyone already and it's pretty warm here. The humidity is like a slap in the face when we walked out of Ueno Keisei station to cross the street to the JR Ueno station. The sky sprinkled fat raindrops on us. It was sprinkling when we arrived at the Capsule Inn as well.

The Capsule Inn is pretty nifty. The capsules aren't as small as I originally thought they were (I get a touch caustrophobic) and they really are pretty cool. Our pods are next to each other and we took dorktastic pictures to me laughing, "Oh hey! It's mousaPI in a POD!"

So now we're just chilling and I am elevating my swollen ankles in a poor attempt to get them to stop being swollen. This happened last yearr too. Sadly, they hurt. D:

Okay, off to see [ profile] shimmeredusk and have dinner! Yay!
jemz: (earth in water)


Today, I haven't slept yet!! Too many things to do before I leave for Tokyo! plane Nearly done with packing briefcase and emailing everyone back mailto

I am so excited, everyone!! I love traveling to new places shinkansen and seeing beautiful sights fujisan and eating delicious food onigiricakebreadfishcherryhamburgermartini

But I may be too busy to find internet to post up my travels. Don't worry! I will try my best to write them and keep a photo diary!

My excitement is growingmelody2 as the time approaches for us to leave for the airport! MousaPi and I will meet a familiar face at the airport. Ilana-chan will be in the same terminal around the same time! It will be an exciting reunion!! Ah! My excitement just grows and grows and grows!!

AH! Leaving for the airport in 4 1/2 hours!! watch Time to sleep a little bit sleepy

See you all soon, minna-san!!

jemz: (Kanjani8 - Eito circle)

So, all my concert tickets are now obtained! Everything is pretty much A GO for Japan! All I need is to pick up the pre-paid phone my friend is lending me, slap some money on it, and then start printing directions and information to put into my clear file.

I only have bits and pieces of planning left to do! I'm totally excited!

Now to finish up my wedding preparations. Everything is in order for the first wedding and I'm currently working on the joint bridal party and the bachelorette party themes. :D Thanks to [ profile] bitofpixiedust, [ profile] tinyangl, and [ profile] nihongofrancais for listening to me babble about themes and colors and invitations. heart1

OH! If anyone has any ideas for Japanese musical groups they want to see perform in the United States, I'm taking in suggestions! Please keep in mind that I probably won't have the budget to get really top names like Gackt, T.M. Revolution, any of the JE groups, or Ayumi Hamasaki. But I am curious if there are bands I should be checking out for Fanime. :D Let me know! Pimp them to me!
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Ugh, it's been super busy!!! But I've checked into my hotel (which is only 20 minutes from home), met up with a fellow Fanime staffer, relaxed a bit with a martini and a jazz band in between a few hours of work, and then I came home to finish packing/shower/sleep. :D

Tomorrow, [ profile] kenaressa will be here! I pick her up from the airport after work!

Speaking of work, must scamper to bed!

I won't be answering much except when I do have the time from all the madness that is Fanime this weekend. But I'll keep posting my pictures! I treasure all your comments. <3

The meme everyone is doing and so I'm doing it too just to be trendy! aka, the Week in the Life Meme. Stolen cheerfully from [ profile] yamapea who was the first one on my flist to do it!


1. You must take between six and eight new photographs per day.
2. Your WITL must be consecutive. no skipping days.
3. You must post your photographs at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken.
4. Each photograph must have the time taken beneath and a title, with no other explanation.

All these are taken by my PokeShigeDex (aka blackberry pearl :D )

It's been a blast so far! I AM WITH ISO!!!!! She is so adorable and awesome and teeeeeeny and so flaily and awesome!

I arrived in New Orleans in the middle of the night due to my flights being delayed all evening. I then caught about 3 hours of sleep before waking up to get ready for Mardi Gras madness in New Orleans. SO MUCH FUN!!!!

I can't even begin to describe how much fun it is. It's so much like Halloween in the Castro but in the daytime or like the Gay Parade in San Francisco except without all the throwing of beads.




I'm having such a blast here and being with Iso and meeting her wonderful friends is just making this experience so wonderful! It's been fantastic and Mardi Gras was everything I expected and more! I totally want to come back again with some great friends and just have a grand time. :D

So excited that I can't really sleep yet. Plus, I should update [ profile] smsummary. :D
