みんなさん久しぶりですね？ (Minnasan, Hisashi Buri Desu Ne?) It’s been a long time hasn’t it, everybody?
Sorry for the delay everyone. I guess things took a little bit longer than I thought after having to shake off those chocolate-gorgin’, lazy-arse, couch-sittin’, oversleepin’, net-surfin’, rakkafrakkin’ cobwebs out of my system. But I think I’m okay now .
Believe it or not, my winter break was pretty uneventful. Honestly it was the quietest New Year’s day that I’ve ever had. I thought about going to Tokyo for New Year’s but was feeling a little under the weather. I started watch the New Year’s Eve Gaki no Tsukai comedy that I like so much, but fell asleep during the show. I woke up in my apartment…alone…around 10 pm. I grabbed a New Year’s meal from the Mini Stop near my apartment, it wasn’t anything special, but it wasn’t bad.
I didn’t have any party plans this year, so I laid down around 11:45 with my eyes open, the still, thick silence just hanging in the air, all around me. I have to say it was just a wee bit depressing. I mean it was dead silent, it seemed like absolutely nobody was home. But I guess that makes sense, though, with Oshogatsu, being one of the most important family events in Japan.
I sent out a couple of emails just after midnight and faded off to sleep.
Yeah, so, um…didn’t really do a whole lot on New Year’s Eve. But on the bright side, it’s a new year, I’m here to see it, and I’m going to make it great!!
But enough about that. How about you? What did you do on New’s Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day? I hope and pray that you didn’t do what I did and just sit in your apartment (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Were you here in Japan? Did you do any traveling? I’d love to hear about it.
P.S.-I would say I’m going to try to something cool on the next New Year’s but according to the Mayan calendar, 2012 is the end, right? (Cue creepy Twilight Zone music).
P.P.S.-MAN IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK!!!
