the j.!

05Nov05

Hey! J. has come to stay with me for two months while she vacations and studies Chinese. I met her at the airport after sitting through an excruciatingly long traffic jam and thinking that she was going to be wandering around KIX while wondering where the hell I was and plotting revenge. Luckily I arrived precisely five minutes before she stepped out of customs which gave me time to smooth my hair back and practice expressions of nonchalance. Actually, of course, I was super excited to see her. She’s only been here a couple of days, but we’ve already been to the student festival, voted on our favorite photographs, eaten fresh tofu in Umeda, and she’s gotten to try takoyaki, the regional specialty. Tonight we’re keeping it low key after recovering from a few rounds at the Blarney Stone, plus there’s all that jetlag to contend with. Tomorrow it’s back to The Bridge for some kind of all-star festival of experimental music, co-starring the guitarist from Afrirampo.
