Back from Japan where much work and shopping was accomplished.  It felt really good to be useful, and to know that my Japanese hasn't faded out.  I'm just as sharp as I ever have been. This has been a huge worry since I can go two weeks at my job without having to use any language skills.

I am glad it only lasted a week though, since I was about ready to kill my coworkers by the end of it.  But it's a shame we had to go right home and I couldn't find time to visit with Soranokumo, or anyone else I still know in Japan.  We had one day of play...and I did get some shopping done, but I had to play tour guide so it wasn't really a good time to slip away and go find doujinshi or anything.

But I did get the one thing I really wanted to but couldn't on my last trip, which is an itunes gift card so I can get some new Japanese music.  Which of course means I'm hoarding it and spending all my time on youtube trying to figure out which songs to get, since even 5000 yen isn't going to buy very much. 

All this means that I ended up finding out that one of my favorite Japanese groups, Rip Slyme, did the ending theme for the Japanese dub of Spongebob Squarepants.

You're welcome.

Sorry, I have been kept jumping the past few days and haven't gotten the chance to type up my journal notes. But here you go, day two of my japan trip. )

I have a few more pictures of my trip up on my flickr page here. More to follow, I was a much better photographer on Sunday.

I have returned from Japan. The time flew like nobody's business and I am beat, but everything was worth it. I didn't manage to slip away and do any geek shopping whatsoever, which was kind of sad, but the work meetings went well and odds are good for me getting to go again in the future.

I kept a journal of everything I did, and I figured I'd just post from that... )

A few pictures can be found here...

Is it Friday? How is it Friday already? Wow. This week has gone fast and I still haven't blogged about LAST weekend. So here we go. )

One of my coworkers gave me a piece of "Watering Kiss Mint" gum. (actually quite tasty)

On the foil wrapper it says...""かんだ後は紙に包んでくずかごに捨ててましょう。"
"After chewing, let's wrap it in paper and throw it in the wastebasket."
