i'm here, chillin' with chester, and just got off the phone with papa-hikosawa to confirm my train arrival tomorrow. while on the outside, i'm bundled up tight with cold weather and freezing wind, i noticed myself melting just a little in the inside when i caught certain sounds and smells that reminded me that i'm on my way "home".
ps - just to get this trip off on the right foot, the japanese government definitely now has an official immigration entry photo of me throwing double japanese-v-peace signs. heck ya.
current mood: f-f-f-freeeeeezing

i made the decision to skip practice last night in an attempt to literally get my stuff together. it really wasn't a decision i took lightly, and i had every intention on being done with all the stuff i needed to do before i left (including, of course, buying more presents!). so did i get it done? ... ((let's all join in on this one))... of course not. i instead spent 2+ hours on the phone with a boy, completely distracted from what i was trying to accomplish, and no farther along in my To Do list. it's going to be a long night.
current mood: i aim to get at least 4 hours sleep tonight!

ah, so they've learned
usually when i go out of town, i'm not big on bringing back souvenirs... at least not for anyone else :) i do, however, try to fulfill requests if i'm given the assignment. well, word must have gotten out about that, because i have no less than 6 different missions to accomplish in my tiny little trip... and unfortunately none of them involve giving me something to do during my LAX layover.
current mood: i should start thinking about packing

crash. bang. boom.
it's not that southern californians don't know how to drive in the rain. it's that they don't know how to stop. that's okay, i'm sure that part of my bumper was superfluous ... and i have always wanted the imprint of a buick grill stamped in to my paint anyway!
current mood: annoyed

my world just got a little smaller
considering the target audience, i've been surprised that i haven't seen more friends, classmates, or colleagues on the dodgeball courts over the course of my (albeit short) ref'ing career. once i ran in to some friends from petco when i subbed for another ref, and then i mysteriously had a friend of a friend show up to sub in a team a few weeks ago.
that all changed yesterday. cue the former colleagues, travis' good friends kim and kevin, a local morning radio show, and a high school friend... they all ended up on my court last night. sort of crazy. i've broadened my reach when i called that radio station this morning... only after one of the hosts made the comment "... and the ref was kind of being a baby". oh no she dih'nt. so i called them up. i think they were surprised, to say the least. though i may have gotten in a little bit of trouble when i outted my boss when i said i hadn't been paid in a while... the check went in to the mail today. any publicity is good publicity, right?
current mood: celebritt-y

this year has been a long time in coming. but i'm so excited for its possibilities! it certainly started out with the same crazy shananigans that i hope to repeat all throughout the year... a strange combination of costume changes, twister championships, and learning "happy new year" in thai :)
best to you and yours in this very fortunate year (8 is lucky in lots o' cultures)!
current mood: my future's so bright
