So, I have a blog post about my new job with pictures and whatnot, but I thought I'd go ahead with my Tokyo post first. Ahhh~ Tokyo. I love it there. My wonderful husband decided that the best cure to my bout of depression last month was to send me on a week trip to Tokyo! Of course, another good cure for that is obtaining a job, but at the time that didn't seem like a feasible option. Oh well~
SO! David sent me to Tokyo via highway bus on the morning 12th of April and I came back on the 18th via nightbus. Yep. Oh nightbus we meet again. So, the trip TO Tokyo was pretty uneventful. It was like a 6&1/2 hour trip and we left at 9am. I spent most of the trip dozing and exchanging email/texts with Angel. However, a funny thing happened~! I fell asleep at one point while listening to Cabin Pressure. And then I jolted awake, even though the volume was pretty quiet on my iPod. Turns out, I woke up right as we passed through Shirakawa. I looked out the window and saw my old stomping grounds and then turned to look out at the mountains and laughed, because they were covered in snow. Poor people at BH! Anywho, I drank my coffee around this point to keep me somewhat alert and alternated between the text/emails and reading my ebook.
Keira and I checked in, grabbed a bite at McD's and then went for a nice walk around the area. It was really nice staying in such a quiet area. Only the Saikyo Line train visited this station and it was one stop away from Ikebukuro. Awesome. So, after our little exploration we decided to go do some karaoke. Wooo! We sang a couple Disney songs, I attempted to sing a W song without Angel, Keira sang some Garbage and then we sang Don't Look Back in Anger. I also made a shocking discovery: They did NOT have Our Lady Peace or Theory of a Deadman, but the DID have Default! Of all the Canadian bands to have, they skip Theory of a Deadman and have Default instead! It just made me laugh. (Not that I don't like Default. I do! I just think it's funny that they have them as an available choice in a Japanese karaoke place.)
