1 more week!

Anyone want to give me an early birthday present and get me a full length mirror that I can have in my room? The biggest mirror I currently have is in my hallway, and the lighting is bleh... I want to actually be able to see myself before I go out.

Example from today:

The dress really does have quite a bit of pattern. But with this lighting I can hardly make out the waistband >_< It makes it so hard to judge if two pieces of clothing match, because I can't see the exact shade of colour.


Some of you who are going to the A-Kon might be leaving already tomorrow, so I'll say this now: Have fun! \(^^)/ Looking forward to read both your reports, and see what the band has to write about their first trip to the US in their blogs afterwards. I hope no one will ask Kamijo who he's "cosplaying" this time ^^;; I heard he wasn't too happy with that at the last anime convention he went to.

Just a week left till I'll have finished all of my finals ^.^

you look so incredible gorgeous! Just had to say that ^^;

I'll be leaving for A-Kon, hopefully by tomorrow afternoon, if things go as planned >_< (still got some issues with my plane ticket >_>)

In any case, Good luck on the rest of your finals =]

Thanks ♥

I know how stressful it can be, plane tickets and organizing and stuff. At least you don't have to travel between countries like we did? :p

You *are* pretty! ^o^

I'm almost considering Texas to be a separate country. XDD Haha, not really, but I've never been there before. I'm not really looking forward to the heat. X_X

I about fell over laughing at the Kamijo thing. Oh man. I hope I won't do something really silly. @___@ I'm going to freak out a little inside during the autograph session(s), I just know it! But really, they're just people too. I'll keep my fangirling in the confines of hotel room. Poor pastelflower's probably not going to know what to do with me. XD

I hope I manage to snag some merchandise. I'll be super stoked if I'm quick enough to purchase a T-shirt.

But I'll definitely be posting up a live report. =D

Good luck with your finals!

I've never been to Texas before either. I imagine it being somewhat like Florida without the humidity, or California without the refreshing air from the sea? Those are the only southern states I've been to.

You definitely don't have to be nervous about meeting them. Of all the Japanese artists I've met, this is the band that has made me the least uncomfortable (maybe except for Matenrou Opera, cause they were so extremely nervous themselves, there was certainly no need for me to be x] ) It's Juka you have to look out for XD

Let me know what the band photo T-shirt looks like. The band logo shirt is probably similar to one of the Japaneses ones.

And thank you~ ^.^

I think the humidity is at about or just a bit lower than the humidity of Florida because of the location. I'm thinking Dallas is desert country but looking at pictures, it looks like Athens, the city I live in during the school year. It's always waaaaay humid in Athens because it resides next to a ton of trees and a huge body of water and that tends to raise humidity levels through the roof. But the hotel will be air-conditioned and I can live with that. XD

Versailles seems really chill, based on what I've seen on the Urakizoku DVDs and various live clips. The language barrier might be a bit of a problem but I think just being there and goofing around a little will be pretty fun. ^_^

Lol! What's different about meeting Juka? I think the worst thing I could possibly do is randomly give him a hug, but I would definitely abstain from doing that in the heat of the moment. I'd be too flustered to say anything coherent. ;_; But it would've been cool to see the Luxurious outfit. For some-odd reason I always wanted to see the real thing. XP

I'm kind of rambling now, haha.

I'll take lots of pictures! And I'll keep an eye out for the band photo shirt for ya. =D

Juka freaked me out the first time I met him XD The first thing he did when I came up to him was grab my hand. I expected that, this being a meet&greet event. But when I talked to him, he leaned in really close. As if I wasn't nervous in the first place, now I had to worry about my breath as well xp And then he wouldn't let go of my hand the first three times I tried to turn away, and was just standing there, staring without saying anything. Me = whattheheckshouldIdo?whywon'theletgo? D:
I like the Luxurious outfit, but I think it was a bit big on him, making him having to adjust it between songs etc. The clearest memory I have involving that outfit is waiting in line during the abovementioned event, watching him adjust his pants quite a bit. wtf Juka. You're standing right in front of dozens of fans! XD

Hope the area around the merchandise table won't be too chaotic. As long as they bring enough items it should be ok since that will allow people to wait until others have finished buying stuff, so everyone won't have to throw themselves at the table all at once. The T-shirts are so much cheaper than the Japanese ones D:< It would be nice if they have some leftovers of smaller sizes after the US lives and bring them back to Japan with them to sell there (for less than 5000 yen!)

Holy-

Wow. That story made my day right there. Is he usually like that? I think he may have partly tried to memorize what you look like (maybe? XD), but that must have been awkward as hell. 0_o What an interesting character.

That pants thing is too funny. Aw man... he ought to come to the US for a while and eat some of the fast food here. He wouldn't have a problem with the outfit after that. X_X

Would you like me to snag you a shirt if I get the chance to? Depending on how many people there are wanting to buy things and how much stuff is left, there's a chance I could grab you a shirt. I don't know exactly what they look like but I'm going to bet they're the same ones they were selling during the Europe tour. Still, if they are at $20 the price of the shirt + shipping should still end up being cheaper than 5000 yen.

Aww, you'd do that? <3 I don't think they'd be the same shirts as in Europe. The EU tour shirts didn't have the band photo, and it had the European concert dates printed on the back.
I understand if it gets too difficult to buy stuff for others than yourself, but if you do manage to get hold of a shirt extra, let me know and I'll send you the money for it. Thank you ♥

lol, I don't know, maybe that's just Juka's reaction to fans he know he hasn't met before? I went to that event together with inertia (who was kind enough to give me one of her instore event tickets), and she mentioned he'd been a bit strange the first time she met him too. At least he didn't seem to stop blinking/breathing and look slightly like he was panicking like Kaya did at our first encounter XD Now that was an awkward moment.

Oh right! Tour dates! I forgot about that. @___@ XD

Would you prefer one kind of shirt over another? Colors or designs or whatnot? There's going to be a chance that I'm just gonna have to grab whatever's left in your preferred size, but I'll do my best to find something you've described.

Awww, I bet the artists are sometimes just as nervous as the fans at those kinds of events. There's something a little bit endearing (and something just a tad bit weird, too XD) about that. X3
chounohana
May. 29th, 2008 07:27 pm (UTC)
Since we don't know what the two different designs will look like, just go for the one you think look better :) And since we haven't heard anything else mentioned, they're probably going to be regular shirts shaped for men, so I think a size small will be better (unless that's like childrens size or something. I'd like to fit breasts in there XD)
But yeah, grab what you can x]

The weird thing about Kaya is that for some months he was like that; staring a lot at events/lives, seeming really unsure of how to react to a foreigner. Then suddenly at an instore event in November, he was all :DDD and greeted me with "hajimemashite" which is something you say the first time you meet someone, and after that he continued to be all :DDD everytime I've seen him. Did we have an 'awkward phase' we just had to get through before starting anew or something..o_O

I have some good news and some bad news. I managed to snag you a shirt, but it's a medium. D': it's a little bug for me and it looks like you might be about the same size or a little smaller than me, and it's just got the Versailles logo on the front in white (the shirt is black). The photo version was sold out way before I got to the merchandise table.

Let me know if you'd still like it. (I can snap a picture of it when I get home, if you'd like.)

you're sooo pretty.... ^_^

finished my last exam today... I think it went ok... and I really mean it.. maybe good grade, maybe ''bad'' grade. nothing to worry about..

I did remember everything that was written in the book about the genre... just hope my analysis is good enought (I only wrote about five pages and two essays)....

So your vacation has started now? When are you leaving town?

I'm sorry I can't join you for the hanami thing, but I have to spend this weekend working on a paper (semesteroppgave) .__. Hope you have fun though!

back from ''hanami'' day...
gosh, it was hot outside today.. I was sweating all the way to the museum.. ^_^. and people looked at me from their cars and all ^_^
I got a free japanese ''fan'', not sure what it is called, but it's big, round and and plastic. I got one really good picture of my yukata taken with my friend (also in yukata borrowed from the Japanese organisation/embassy). I saw preformance in kendo and karate and some really nice ikebana...

The fan you're talking about is probably an 'uchiwa'. Very convenient in the Tokyo summer heat ^^ I'm glad you had fun. Sounds a lot more interesting than my day -__-

oh, and I won't be able to visit my parents until another two weeks, so I guess you'll be working by then :/
