Today is the last day of a 3 day weekend in Japan, yay! Although, boo, last day! I normally don't like to leave my house at the weekends, because I'm antisocial, but I've been surprisingly social for me recently. Last weekend I went to see an English version of Avenue Q in Tokyo, which was funny, although I would have appreciated it if the person sat behind us hadn't been making comments all the way through it... you're not at home in front of your TV, shhh!
On Thursday I went to a gathering for alumni of my university (I honestly have no idea what it was for, heh), which was also surprisingly fun! I don't normally go out on weekday nights, mainly because I get really tired the next day, but I think sometimes I should. It's good to break up the routine a bit.
Then on Saturday I went to a home party thrown by one of my friends from work, which was also fun! And I persuaded my husband (who is just as antisocial and averse to meeting new people as I am) to go, and he had fun too! Yayyy! Also, yum, food.
My husband is currently working his way through Harry Potter, and is currently on the Prisoner of Azkaban. He hasn't read them before or seen the films, but he's got really into them, in spite of the fact that he's made fun of me since we met for liking the books. Hehe. He was trying to tell me his theory on where the book is going, but couldn't remember Peter Pettigrew's name so called him Spaghetti instead. And then kept on going "Damn you spaghetti!!!" hehe.
Okay, that wasn't very interesting, so have a random Japan picture!
Onsen (hot springs) monkey! Yay!
This was taken at an onsen in Nagano prefecture, where monkeys come in the winter. Understandably, as Nagano when I went (last year in November) is FREEZING!
Keep those updates coming! Ah, the live-commentator at performing arts shows are THE WORST, followed closely by the phone-texter!返信削除
Hahahaha I can't even fathom how your husband came up with "spaghetti" for Peter Pettigrew, but I love it! It'll always be that great inside joke you'll have when he becomes a rabid Harry Potter fan (it's inevitable).
They are!!! Urgh! I've been trying not to get too pissed off when that happens recently though, as it ruins it for me as well, so I didn't turn around and give the loudest woman a death stare like I normally would. Hehe.削除
God knows!! He's a bit of and oddball, but in a good way. I expect though, that it'll be the kind of thing that I'll bring up later and he'll be like.. what?! And not remember at all. Hehe. :(
I love that you AND your husband are both like 'People? Ewwwwwww' because LOL. Also, yeah, leaving the house is laaaaaame (although yay for all the cool things you did!)返信削除
Also, MONKEY! What?! Japan, you are so awesome (I assume. One day I will see you, Japan. One day.)
People suck! Hehe. It's good to leave the house sometimes though :) And it's always nice to go out and do social things together, because most of the time we end up either doing things seperately with our respective groups of friends or just doing something the two of us.削除
MONKEY!! :D If you go into the countryside, monkeys are pretty common here. When I was on my year abroad at university, I climbed up a mountain near Tokyo called Mt. Takao, and there were signs everywhere warning people about possibly aggressive monkeys, so I was all excited about the idea of seeing one, as I hadn't come across one yet in the wild. While we were walking, my friends (2 Filipino girls and 1 Japanese boy) got really excited and pointed at a nearby tree.. so I got excited thinking that it was going to be a monkey, but it was a squirrel, haha.
Japan is pretty awesome to visit! You should come :D
