This morning I did laundry.  fun and exciting it was not. lol

Then I did groceries and bought a whole bunch of food that I didn't get to eat today...although I am debating cooking when I go's already almost 9:30...but I don't think I'll be going to bed before it's probably ok to cook what I had in mind.  I bought ingredients to make pasta with chicken, green pepers, onion, lotus root, white sauce and cheeze.  I also have carots too but they may take too long to cook for this.   After shopping for food and while waiting for my clothes to dry, I ate lunch (Yaki Niku and Rice with some sort of sea weed stuff that was really good). 

At 1:30 I got on a train to go to Shibuya. I couldn't remember if I was supposed to meet Mamiko at 2 or 2:30 and didn't want to spend the money to check online so I just went early and read a book.  It was 2:30.  So I read some more of my Stargate Atlantis Book: Blood Ties.  Really good book. 

At 2:30 Mamiko found me and Yoko joined us shortly after.  We went to book off and I bought another movie (Deep Impact).  I love that movie!! and now I have it in both Japanese and English! YAY!  After that we went to HMV so Yoko could buy concert tickets.  We went to a little dessert shop after that and got drinks and talked until about 5:30.  At that point Yoko went home and Mamiko went to meet her friend from America named Diana.  She and Diana were going to go see Ponyo on the Clif by the Sea. (yes I remembered the name of the movie in English this time).  Since I didn't mind seeing it a second time I tagged along with them.  Diana is here for a 3 week course to help her get ready to take the 2nd level proficiency test. I wish I had known about it! It ends the day after I leave to go home.  It's pretty intensive but she's learning a lot!

We also went and got purrikura (little sticker pictures that you take in a photo booth and then get to decorate!  you get to take 7 pics and pick 6 that you like and then you decorate them and then you print them off.)  I love purikura...I still don't know how to spell it though. lol

After the movie I took the train back to Shibuya and got here just before coming online to post.  So now I'm gonna go upstairs a cook 'cause I think I'm hungry enough to eat now.  

I got an e-mail from Aya.  Her parents want me to go spent Sunday and Monday at their place so I won't be going to Disney Sea on the 17 with Aya, I'll be hanging out at her place instead...kinda happy and kinda not about that. I really wanted to go to Disney Sea...but I do like spending time with Aya's parents.  So now I have to find some other day to go to Disney Sea...I'm thinking probably Tuesday or Wednesday..pretty much the only days I can go....I just hope that I can find a friend to go with me..I'll gladly go alone, but it's more fun with a friend.

Well that's it for today.
Have a good day everyone!

Today I went to Shibuya with Emanuel and Julian.  We left the hotel around noon and took the Yamanote line to Shibuya (190 yen).  When we got there we decided to go to the Tokyu Food Show.  It's like a big underground market full of food stuff.  Bread shops, meat shops, french foods, german foods, sweets and name it.  Everything was kinda of expensive though.  I ended up getting crispy chicken with garlic cheese roasted baby potatos!  I also bought some bread things at the bread was a fresh sweat stick bun with chocolate in it.  yummy!! :)   We took some pictures by the statues and then walked around the city for a while.  I went looking for a Book Off store, found it, but it was closed.  I was dissapointed.  We spent over 2 hours there just going from place to place.  We stopped in a sega arcade and I played taiko drums for a few minutes. it's 200 yen for 2 songs/turns.

We found an all you can eat place with soup, sandwhiches, pasta and cakes! I think it was about 1,840 yen (about $18 CAD).  Not bad for Japan. And the cakes looked really good!  You can only stay in the shop for 90 minutes though. They don't want you eating too much cake! lol

Then we headed over to Harajuku.  We went around the train station to the park and walked down the nice paths to the temple shrines.  I got a lot of beautiful pictures. Julian was really nice and took a bunch of pictures of me posing in front of various things. I got a few pictures with the boys too. While we were at the Temple there was a wedding.  We watched the procession from the main temple to one of the smaller areas for the ceremony.  it was really neat.  I got some pictures of it and a video but I don't know how good the quality is.  I got to use my french for a bit with a guy from France.  he says I barely have an accent and that my  french really doesn't sound like Quebec French. lol ! Well that's good I guess. haha.  At about 5:30 I decided I had had enough and headed back to the hotel to do some laundry.  The boys decided to stay and look at the shops and they haven't come back yet...that was 3 hours ago. I guess they are stil having fun! lol

I got back to the hotel and found out that our laundry machine is broken so I went up the street to the 24 hour coin laundry place.  It turns out to be faster and cheaper there.  It cost me 200 yen for the washing machine, 200 yen for 20 minutes in the dryer and 30 yen for the soap.  So total of 430 yen... at the hotel it's 500 yen and it takes over 2 hours to do one load instead of 50 minutes down the street.  So I'll be doing my laundry down the street from now on!

I had chicken and rice and tomatos for dinner tonight. I bought eggs and will be making Egg McMuffins for breakfast tomorrow! 
I'm meeting Aya in Tachikawa at 11 tomorrow so as soon as I finish talking with mom in the morning I'll be heading out to the train station! We are going to go see the new Miyazaki movie that just came out in theatres! (the next in line after Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away)
This next one doesn't have an English title yet but it's about a fish that gets caught by a boy,...and likes the boy so wants to be a human..or something like that. It's supposed to be really good.

Well that's it for today.
Have a good day everyone!
