I MISSED the first episode of Princess Princess D! GAH. I'll have to find a way to download it somehow.

It airs on TV Asahi at something like 3.10am. Are pretty boys in Gothic Lolita outfits worth staying up that late? I think the answer may be yes!

I'm going to have a quick poke around Yahoo Auctions. I heard that they'd abolished their subscription system, so anyone can sign up now.

Turns out I should've been cheering for England rather than Japan... they're top of group B now! How did that happen?

Does anyone have any tips for surviving hot, humid weather? I'm not used to this... and it's only June!

I had a lot more to say, but I've got to get to work.

There was a link on the tenimyu comm yesterday for Princess Princess D. If you can't download it there, let me know and I'll upload for you~

Thanks for the offer, but I couldn't fit an episode that big onto my camera! I'm going to settle for watching the second episode tonight. thanks again!
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 5th July 2006 15:55 (UTC)
oooh, ok XD

btw, have you got any news on your bids for the Tenimyu tickets?
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 15:59 (UTC)
Yeah, I won them both. Now I have to send money really fast -- the first time I went to the bank I forgot how much money I needed to send. The second time I forgot how to do it. Need to do it during staffed hours...

How are you doing for tickets?
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 5th July 2006 16:02 (UTC)
That's great!

I'm going to wait until there definitely is a ticket for me to watch Tenimyu, before buying the air ticket...
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:04 (UTC)
Are you bidding on Yahoo auctions currently?
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 5th July 2006 16:05 (UTC)
No, I haven't bidded on anything yet... sort of waiting to see what you're doing, really.
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:07 (UTC)
Perhaps I could put in a bid for you?

Or, we could meet beforehand, you could go to the earlier showing and I could go to the later showing and we could meet up afterwards to see the boys off?
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 5th July 2006 22:41 (UTC)
I guess that means no chance we can get to see the same performance?
Williamgenkischuldich on 6th July 2006 06:38 (UTC)
Not unless you chose one of the performances and try to bid tickets to one of them/get me or someone else to bid on those tickets. However, there are plenty of other people going, if you want tickets on a different day.
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 10th July 2006 13:32 (UTC)
I got the tenimyu ticket 8D (and my flight tickets too), it's for the evening performance on the 8th. Which one(s) are you going to?
Williamgenkischuldich on 10th July 2006 14:31 (UTC)
SQUEE! I'm going to (the?) two performances on the 8th.

Do you want to stay at my place, or are you still looking for a place in central Tokyo instead...?
Pez }}morning.maple{{yuki_scorpio on 10th July 2006 14:36 (UTC)
OOOH! We're going to the same one then 8D That'd be so cool~ (I'm thinking about seeing one more performance, since I'm going all the way there afterall XD)

Will it be okay to tell you later? I'm going to check out the prices and availability of ryokans etc (most likely I'll take your offer though ^^)
Williamgenkischuldich on 10th July 2006 14:55 (UTC)
Go for it, I say! The prices are nothing like what they were last time!

Yeah, sure.

I'm planning to upload it this morning. ^_^
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 15:55 (UTC)
Thanks, although I can't fit it all onto my camera, so I'm just going to catch the second episode instead. Thanks though!

I have it also if you need it. I clicked through it and it looks amusing. Adachi has a really really weird speech sequence in there..

As for the humidity... it's KILLING me too!!! It's only friggin' June, but I have a feeling that this summer is going to be worse than last year. My electricity bill is going to be so high, oh maaaan... NOT looking forward to that..
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 15:57 (UTC)
Ah, thanks but I can't fit a drama-size episode onto my camera. Thanks very much for the offer though!

Ah, I thought you liked this kind of weather? I just don't know what to do about it, but someone said I could buy a (special?) box of sand that works as a dehumidifier from the 100 en store.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on 5th July 2006 16:02 (UTC)
I LOVE hot weather. ^__^ 100 degrees doesn't bother me at all. But I HATE humidity. Take away the awful humidity that Japan has, and it'd be a great summer!!
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:04 (UTC)
Hey, what are you doing up at this time!? :P

I could do without both...
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on 5th July 2006 16:10 (UTC)
LOL I could say the same thing for you!! ^.~

I don't have work tomorrow, so I returned momentarily to a schedule that's more natural for me! ^^
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:12 (UTC)
I don't have work early tomorrow, but I have to get up early to go to the bank and the gymm... :P Sounds nice...!

Ore-sama diplomatically cheered for both. You should have been paying attention.

And cold wet towels. Very good for helping one cool down and sleep at night.
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:00 (UTC)
I was!

Good tip about the wet towels. Thanks!

I don’t know about the specifically humid bit of it but the only think I can think of is not to take too cool showers because while they cool you down briefly, they’ll make you even more uncomfortable when you heat up again. Damp cloths on the back of your neck help too sometimes.
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:01 (UTC)
Oh, right. Someone at work suggested that as a good idea... thanks for letting me know!
Kasrakasra_c on 30th June 2006 12:53 (UTC)
For the hot humid weather... I'm going to guess you don't have air conditioning, right? I've heard that swamp coolers will do wonders for cooling down a room or apartment, but I don't know if they sell them over in Japan. Other than that, try not to run around too much during the hottest parts of the day, and if possible shower/bathe before bed to make it easier to get to sleep. Good luck!
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:02 (UTC)
We do have airconditioning, but I'm kind of worried about the electricity bill! A swamp cooler sounds heavy-duty though... and expensive! ^^

Unfortunately, I can't help but run around during the day -- I teach kids! :P
tirwolftirwolf on 1st July 2006 14:13 (UTC)
Air conditioning is a MUST!
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th July 2006 16:05 (UTC)
Thanks! I guess I have no option but to use it, huh? I was worried about the cost of electricity...
