Before this world starts up again, it’s me & night.
Look at what I found in my photobooth folder.
My crazy friends going insane in my room, taking about twenty million photos without me in them…….
I LOVE YOU GUYS!
Grasping at straws.
When I had already let them all fall through my fingers.
Reason doesn’t like to be listened to.
Irresponsible spontaneity on the other hand, …
I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms and state lines
The distance from here to where you’ d be
It’ s only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place
Where I’ d find your face
My fingers in creases
Of distant dark places

Convinced the sister to go get purikura (aka. neoprint in Singapore). The machines give you crazy eyes (refer to sister)! Crazy big! I don’t know how they know where our eyes are… but my hair confused the machine I think. It was funnnn.
It was fun, and she said my decorations are too elaborate – can’t blame me, its the Japanese influence! And all those things they have to design them are so cute!! I can’t resist.
So I have been bringing my dear sister around, and we are super tired every day from walking for hours and hours! But its awesome fun!!
I hope she gets impressed with it eventually. I think most of us weren’t impressed the first time they saw “the sights” of Tokyo. I wasn’t the first time I saw Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku etc. But now, I love them? So.. maybe it takes time for them to get under your skin.
We did go to Mori Art Museum yesterday, and the exhibition there – Roppongi Crossing: Can There be Art? – was really really good. I. LOVE. MUSEUMS. And Sveta, Ira and I hit the Museum of Science and Nature (I think that’s what its called) a few days ago – love! I love seeing dinosaur bones! And stuff like that. Hee. I want a japanese dog (no idea what breed it is – the hachiko one!) and an usagi (rabbit)!!!
