Just Another Manic Monday
Monday, October 09, 2006
I'm keeping things short today because a) I'm still on vacation in Tokyo and all this fun deserves my full attention; b) I'm way behind on all my real life work; and c) if my boyfriend doesn't have to work on Columbus Day, then neither do I. Actually, Mike headed back to Singapore this afternoon and I'm still in Tokyo for another day and a half before I head on to the U.S. of A. You know what that means! With Mike gone, tomorrow will be entirely devoted to shopping for girly things. Possibly pink girly things. And stickers.
Actually, Mike's been a real trooper, allowing me repeated trips to multiple vintage stores and accompanying me to such wonderful places as the Marimekko Concept Store and The Shop That Sells My Little Pony Bags. (It's for my Halloween costume! I swear!) We spent most of the day yesterday hanging around with the Little Bo Peep kids at Harajuku, and it was great fun. More on that to come, once I figure out how to download photos from the new camera onto my computer.
In the meantime, direct from the walls of our favorite pork broth ramen shop: Aren't these lights fantastic? They're little bulbs behind Japanese spoons. Very simple idea, but the effect was really striking.
Oh yeah, there was also an encounter with a pink dog. He wasn't very friendly, but you can't really blame him for having anger issues.
