Happy March 1st from Tokyo! I can’t believe I made it this far without dying. (Yes, I know that’s a tad dramatic, but I’ve always had a flair for drama.)
This morning I had no real plan, so I decided to go to Ikebukuro and buy some stuff at Uniqlo. Well, I forgot that shit don’t open until 11AM around here, so I poked around Sunshine City, looking in the Pokémon store and spinning Pokéstops until Uniqlo opened. I don’t know why I always want to go to Uniqlo while I’m here. They have it in my city. I just love Uniqlo man. I’m actually super glad I popped in there because they have these new jumpsuits based on MoMA designs and they are so cute. Plus, I’m a sucker for jumpsuits. Also, I fit into a medium size. What the what? I’ve never fit into a medium size in Japan, not even at Uniqlo. That was a huge ego boost for today.
After that I went to the Evangelion store and bought some おみやげ for Demande. I have seen bits and pieces of Evangelion, and I like Mari but he’s much more versed in Evangelion lore (and Evangelion stickers are the only ones he uses on Line). I bought a couple things for myself and some things for him.
I’m still thinking of what to get Mamoru. He’s the hardest person in the world to shop for. I was thinking of going back to the Pokémon store and getting him a Dragonite plush, since the Dragonite we saw in Okinawa escaped his grasps while I caught it. (This was probably for the best because if it had escaped me, I probably would have thrown myself off that very bridge. Dramatics again.) Is that gift funny or mean? I think it’s funny. I don’t know. I haven’t decided yet.
I’m meeting Motoki in a little bit. Now I’m just gonna watch TV and have some downtime before going out and drinking a fair amount. I hope your March starts off on the right foot!
