Back from the concert. I think it went quite well. I spent the rest of the evening speaking drunken Japanese to two policemen. This was because I sat opposite them at the izakaya, not that I got into trouble! It was nomihoudai (four umeshu rock, one yuzu hachimitsu spark and one lychee pure), if that explains why my typing is a little erratic.



Oh, none of us got any DL4 tickets. But I think you knew that.

o.o *flail* YOU'RE SO CUTE *GLOMP* :3 i wish i coulda gooooone. ;-;

btw, how should we go about getting tickets now? (..i've been looking at how prices go... i'm SO glad i'm not aiming for final performance... cause i've seen BAD seats (and i mean like.. bad bad BAD ones) going for like.. 35,000 yen each Oo) and yeaaah. Oo..

and did you get my text about the burimyu? <3

Thanks! I wish you could've gone! But perhaps it was for the best since we kind of oversold a little. I still don't know what the Nou Theatre will say about that! ^^

Now, I'm still using Yahoo Auctions. Maybe you could use eBay Japan because while there'll be less tickets, there may be less bidders too. Mind you, I know nothing about eBay. Even the English version confuses me!

*Sigh* There are TONS of tickets for sale though, aren't there? Those ticket touts DISGUST me.

I got it, I think! I could've sworn I replied...? Maybe I was rushing to the next rehearsal or something. ^^

That’s a beautiful kimono. It’s technically a houmongi, right? Because it’s for a formal occasion, instead of a tomesode.

Also, to my when I'm drunk I can speak a second language much better answer I should also add that I start making non-native speaker mistakes in English too. >_>
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 14:09 (UTC)
Hmm... I don't know. It's not super-formal actually. There are more formal ways to wear one.

Yeah, me too! I usually start thinking in Japanese and translating it back literally into English. :)

You don’t know how glad I am to hear that. I was seriously beginning to worry.

You're gorgeous as ever. ♥
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 14:31 (UTC)
Thanks! The concert was pretty good too. :)

I've never been drunk-drunk (insanely high alcohol tolerance courtesy of family), but pretty much everything which throws my mental state (and let it be lots of caffeine) makes me talk in English... so yeah, I'd say I can probably speak a language much better.

Perhaps I should get thoroughly smashed once to try =D
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 14:32 (UTC)
Yeah, anything that stops me being so embarrassed and gets me talking works quite well!

Your kimono is so purple and shiny!

And I still need your address.
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 14:34 (UTC)
Thanks!

Oh? I sent it to you as a comment, then deleted it. ^^
strawberryjoy on 5th March 2007 20:09 (UTC)
which might explain why I didn't see it (I only read lj posts on the site)

Clarifying why I voted for both "much better" and "much worse"; when drunk, my Japanese suddenly becomes A+++, but my English goes out the window.
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 15:50 (UTC)
I wonder if it's a Japanese/English thing then? When drunk, Japanese speech patterns become easier to understand...?
菖蒲eye_ame on 5th March 2007 09:41 (UTC)
The funny thing is that in my case the "second language" is French and Polish. Doesn't affect English at all ;)
菖蒲eye_ame on 5th March 2007 11:31 (UTC)
P.S.
You look cool, and I do like the kimono. Is that what you meant by strange color combinations? I do like the way they match here!
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 15:53 (UTC)
Re: P.S.
Yeah, I got the closest thing to matching for me! But some of the combinations weren't very good!

Pretty~!! *steals*
I'm glad the concert went well! Sorry about DL4, though. That sucks.

(nomihoudaiiiiiiii XDDDDD)
Williamgenkischuldich on 5th March 2007 15:54 (UTC)
Thanks!

I just won a DL4 ticket on an auction but... ^^
tirwolftirwolf on 5th March 2007 17:09 (UTC)
I am not even commenting on the poll..LOL! Love the kimono. I thought of Kenshin when I saw the color & your hair..! Is that typical garb for a concert? You can tell that I know a lot about Japanese culture...ducks head..
tirwolftirwolf on 5th March 2007 17:11 (UTC)
Oh, don't have a clue about the drink or their liquor content.. would be interested to know though..
Williamgenkischuldich on 6th March 2007 03:23 (UTC)
I thought of Kenshin when I saw the color & your hair..!

I've only seen/read a little bit of Kenshin, so I'm not sure I get the reference. But thanks! I'm guessing it was a compliment. :)

Is that typical garb for a concert?

For a concert in a Nou theatre, definitely. In fact, it's forbidden to enter the stage without wearing tabi socks. These are those special type of socks that have a split between the big toe and the rest of the toes.

Oh, don't have a clue about the drink or their liquor content.. would be interested to know though..

Those were six separate drinks. 'Nomihoudai' means 'all you can drink' and is a staple of Japanese life. ^^ Umeshu rock is the Japanese name for plum liquor with ice. I've no idea what lychee pure is since it didn't taste much like lychee. Yuzu hachimitsu spark is honey and a type of mild citrus called a yuzu.
tirwolftirwolf on 7th March 2007 13:01 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! Kenshin is a samurai who has red hair about your shade & wheres a fushia/purple kimono top about the same shade as the one you had on in the series, not the initial movies that predate it. The animation is quite different. Don't be surprised if I often ask for clarification as I am really new to alot of what you discuss.. thanks.
