on a new note
So last night I went to this little yakitori hidden in the neon depths of the nagarekawa. I snapped this with my keitai (cell phone), it fails to capture the whole atmosphere, but let me tell you it is very cool. (but for one exception, which i'll talk about later) And very japanese. I drank and talked with Keisuke, Akira, and Eiji all night. Eiji is the bartender/owner or whatever, and Akira works there too but it was his night off.
Eiji kept pouring us free shots of sake, and he never fails to correct my americanisms. Like standing at the bar, or taking my shot with 1 hand. He says "You're in Japan!"
of course, that's one of the few things he says i can actually understand. Eiji is all about the "kitanai nihongo", or dirty japanese. When he talks it sounds like someone is holding down a fast forward button.
Things are well. I work a lot. It's very beautiful today, it's pretty warm, and just super gray outside. I'd go somewhere... but i don't know where to go, and I think I'm going to do laundry and play videogames today. It's tiring, and stressful, how i live. It's like an extended vacation basically ~ I think having a couch would probably fix my life. Or a nice desk and cozy chair. Well, I guess this bottle of wine and box of pocky is going to have to cut it instead.
