Looks like Germany go their asses kicked last night by Italy. That's too bad. That's life I guess. I like how I was watching CNN and one of my World Cup questions was magically answered. I had just been wondering "Hey what about Greece?" turns out Fifa is pissed at them because the government tries to get involved in running things or something. The end result is Greece is banned from the World Cup and really an soccer activity until the issue is fixed.

I'm really really really tired...I was up too late playing around on the internet, bad me bad! I'm glad today is just movie class. I like movie class. Too bad I've seen/own all the movies we watched...Spirited Away, bought that when it first came out, Water Boys saw the drama came to Japan bought the DVD, Shall We Dance, saw the US remake had no real desire to watch the movie, and now we shall watch Densha Otoko...yeah saw the drama and dled the movie. So yeah....every movie they decide watch I've seen

Looks like rain...I'd perfer it to rain after class when I'm happily back in my room. Uhg...need sleeeeeeeeep and money....though speaking of money...I guess I have $200 in my US back account and I asked mother dear to send me my bank card as I could use the $$, I could always use the $$.

Current Mood: contentcontent
Really I have to be crazy for doing this. So I've wanted to go see some Takarazuka and I really wanted to see the Rose of Versailles show. However the show is sold out, but there's always a way....the way just involved waking up early an lots of waiting. So on Saturday I put my plan into action! I woke up at 3:30 am...yes 3:30 am. I woke up that early so I could get the train at 4:58 so at about t 4am I took a bike ride to the station. I know this story already sounds so lovely doesn't it. So I get to the station and wait around for a bit and eat my "breakfast" and the catch the train. Now I was taking a new way to the theatre since the way I knew takes longer and I was going for speed. So I took the train to Ikebukuro and took the Yamanote line to Yuurakucho station, of course I actually missed the train and had to wait like 17 min I think for the next one whihc is crazy because that train runs like every second...damn early morning. I was actually pretty depressed when I missed the train because I thought I would have no chance to get a ticket becuase well there's only 49 same day tickets to be had and yeah....so I get to the station around 6:10 and head off to the Theatre, and of course I walk the wrong way for a few but I found out quickly. So I start in the other direction and feel kinda panicy because I had to figure where it was 'cause I had gone a diff way. So I find the way and almost pass the street I should turn down but OMG I had kanji skillls and say a sign that said Takarazuka in kanji soo hooray for knowing the kanji for Takarazuka and also the kanji for place haahaa so I made it I felt the excitment and worry as I turned the gone it was 6:20 and I was expecting disappoint....but wait! I saw the line and it was short! Short as in 8 people short! I hurried to the line of crazy people who had sleeping bags (well just 2 of them) and took my place as number 9! I felt trimuphant for hours. I guess I need to feel soemthing since it was 6:20 and the earliest tickets would be sold was 9:30....I needed something to get me through those hours of boredom as I brought nothing but my mp3 playing and was pretty tired. As I sat more and more people came. I think in the end there was over 60 but only 49 tickets. I also saw the stars arrive. It's really interesting to watch. I took some pictures of the stars for kicks and I took pics of the people and a little video too. It's defenitly an experience to see the fans. It was cool though I got my ticket and it was the best of the worst. I say best of the worst because the ticket was for a standing ticket sooooo this means you get to go stand on the second level behind the last row of seats for 3 hours. However I had ticket 9 which is in the middle section so it was therefore the best of the worst. Though really the ticket isn;t so bad. The standing wasn't bad at all really and with the rental of binoculars (or as they call them opera glasses (totally binaculars)) it's pretty good. It's be nice to be closer but the ticket was $15 (well less but rounding) so I can't complain really. The show was great as I knew it would be but I love Rose of Versailles so I guess I'm already kinda biased. I really liked it though some of the effects were amazing for theatre in my opnion and of course the singing was great. really it's amazing I'd have to reccomending going if you're in Japan. I'm probably crazy but um yeah I'm probably going to go to another show so I will be getting at 3:30 am sometime next month probably.

Now you'd probably think that when I got back at 5 it would be like nap time of just watch tv and do nothing until nap time but no. I had been invited to a party that night at 6:30 and I said I would go....so go I did. I was so tired, so very tired and I didn't feel like being there, yet I was there until 1:30am...I was almost up for 24 hours....I think I made it 23 hours before I finally was back in my room and able to sleep. I still didn't not sleep enough and I am tired. Really I planned to do nothing today other then look for my bike since it went missing at the station that day (apparently I parked it too early) buuuut things don't usually go as planned so instead Hitomi asked me if I was free and wanted to get dinner and so I went! We went out for shabu shabu and it was delicious! We went to this all you can eat place so it was worth the money because we ate a lot of meat and we only had to pay like $10 each so it was great. If I remember how to get there I would go again and take some of the others.

So tomorrow my plan is to sleep and them proceed to watch the DVD of the other Rose of Versailles show, perhaps finishing watching Oniisama he and oh yeah study for the placement test I have on a Tuesday. I'm not a big believer in crammer for a placement test buuut I need a refresher on some grammar points as I suck at them. So yeah yesterday was great but never ending and I'll deffenitly do it again.

And I'm blaming all typos on the fact that I wrote this when I was extremely tired and yeah I basically just copied and pasted this from my other journal

Apr. 4th, 2006 @ 11:12 pm Penis Festival
Well I was lazy before and didn't post anything about the penis festival other then pictures so here's a little blurb of stuff that happened an what not.

So me, Joanna, and Martyna left by bike to Minna Yono station at 8 in the morning so we could make it to Kawasaki to meet the rest of the Polish population in Japan (their friends) by 10 in Kawasaki. So we made it with little issues and spent some time waiting for those crazy Polish because they were late, for shame. When they got there we started to make our way to the shrine but we didn't know where it was...Lucky for us there was a tour guide with a group of foreigners (because like 80% of the people at the festival are foreign). So we followed like we were a part of the group and made it to the festival. We were a little surprised because we thought it was kinda bigger buuuut it was really kinda small. we quickly found the giant pink penis as it's huge and pink. So we walked around and looked at the few things like the daikon radishes being carved into penii, the random merchandise, and the over priced freaky suckers...there was a big line at the cheaper better looking suckers I guess, I never found them so yeah. So after looking around there was something with the kids doing something so we went and watch a kind of dance. After that we stood waiting since we had fairly good spots to see the next parts. So next was a lady/man I'm not sure doing some blessing or something to the giant penis (the black metal looking one). So they blessed the penis and then that started the walking around town with them. So we watched them get ready to go men, women, childern, and cross dressers getting ready to lift the huge things for a walk around town. It was pretty funny and I have some lovely video that I should upload. We proceeded to follow the parade and chase after the giant penii haahaa. So at some point during the chase some of the group cried for beer so we went in search. We went to family Mart and they had little beer as many people had the same urge to drink so we left and continued to walk going back towards the parade and I saved the day when I found a beer vending machine and there was much rejoicing amongst the Polish. So we followed the parade until it was gonna turn around so we turned back and went to another Shrine nearby on the way back and it was nice and penis free. So after eating and looking around we went back to the penis shrine to see if there was anything fun to buy and see if anything else would be happaneing. The only thing going on was some hula dancing and I found nothing fun to buy how sad. So that ended that. Afterwards we ended up going to Izakaya for drinks. I personally wanted to go back for I had enough as I was the only person who knows not a word of Polish (one other girl wasn't fluent but knew some)...so yeah most of the day was people talking in Polish whihc was kinda annoying. for a while my friends tried to encourage English speaking by answering in English but then gave up. So overall it was kinda boring for me to just be there with them. The other funny thing at the Izakaya was special because this crazy drunk Japanese lady that kept coming over and started to teach Japanese drinking songs and such it was pretty messed up and funny. So that ended the day I went back home and everyone else went back to someone's apartment. It sucked 'cause it was raining and I had to ride my bike in the rain ;_; how sad. And that is the quick recap of the Penis Festival yeeees.

And of course I have some pics...

Current Mood: lazylazy
I am really addicted to Takarazuka...I have yet to see anything beyond a video about it and random clips yet I find it facinating. I keep watching this clip I have from Elisabeth, it's amazing! I need to buy it, and I would have bought it already if I knew my address in kanji....but I don't so that makes ordering a little hard ^^;; Though maybe it's good that I didn't order because it's gonna set me back like $200 'cause every freakin' DVD costs $100 and if I'm gonna get one I might as well get 2 since I dunno shipping? I could always take a trip to the store by the theatre (dunno if I can go to the store in the theatre without a magic ticket for show...yes I fear messing up far too much), but that takes time and like lots of train fare. On another note I got Joanna interested enough that she wants to go see Rose of Versailles with me and is thus willing to wake up at the ass crack of dawn to wait in a line that doesn't garuntee a ticket, awesome. So much more amusing then waiting by myself. So yes That's all that's up with that...I mighta wrote about that already btu i forget since I have 2 journals right now so yeeeeees.

So today was another day that involved me doing nothing much. I did leave my room and go to Yamada Denki and the grocery store as I wanted something already cooked for lunch/dinner and of course I need drinks...never can buy enough drinks. I also bought some notecard things so I could make what I am calling manga vocab. I swear if I use my dictionary while reading it takes me forever because I end up looking up the same word like a million times! So since the manga I read are usually many volumes long I might as well make cards to accompany and thus make life easier and dare I saw I learn some new words.

I really need to do laundry tonight....I have no clean clothes, none at all....well I have a shirt that's clean...that's it though oh and 2 pairs of socks. That makes it all sound so much better XP So yeah I should go do that....and clean my room too it's pretty bad...yeeeeeah....

Oh and note to self go and buy South Park DVD Japanese dub will be hysterical!

Mar. 26th, 2006 @ 08:31 pm International Tokyo Anime Fair
Current Mood: tiredtired
Today involved waking up nice and early to head out to the International Tokyo Anime Fair. I had no real idea how to get there nice I never went to the place it was at before. I really didn't know where I was going so it was an adventure much like my adventure to find the Takarazuka theater. But much like the other adventure it was not so hard to get to my destination. So I left at I left for the station at like 8:30 and got the 9:10 train to Tokyo. So I was their by 10:30 just waiting around for Dawn and the others to get there since we were suppossed to meet. They got there a bit later like 11:30-ish. The fair itself was kinda lame. It had it's moments like the Nana room (or closet as Gene likes to call it) and the blow-ups all around the place. Looked pretty cool, lots of eye-candy but the "fair" was really lacking. The goods area was like the worst thing ever, it sucked hard core. I still bought some stuff 'cause I love the Prinees (purini in Japanese romanized) from Disgea silly Penguin like things. I bought a shirt and a mug and I was pleased fora few minutes. Picked up a lot of free crap too, very crappy crap. So it was a way to kill a day I guess.

I still wanna go to the Rose of Versailles Takazukara thing!!! I dunno if I could possible get their early enough to get a standing room ticket though....I might try again but that means catching the first train at 6 so that means leaving by 5 to get to the bus and stuff. I wonder if there's an unbusy day? I guess I'll have to play 20 questions with a friend later and see if she knows anything about it and if not perhaps bug my host mom. If I can't see Rose of Versailles live I will probably buy a DVD but I also will try to go to a different show. I'd really like to see something, so I plan to do so. I really wanna make the most of my time. Tomorrow I will do nothing and pending on if I get my call to go look at the Cherry Blossoms I just may go to the Zoo.
