Being Wholesome in Sin City
I’m about nine hours before I start my epic journey back to Japan. Cross your fingers that I don’t miss a flight due to my own negligence again . It’ll be good to see my friends in Japan again, eat real seafood, and be in a house I’m not allergic to, but I’m not going to pretend that I’m happy to leave the US o’ A. Maybe it was the good side of culture shock, but I’m gonna miss the old motherland.
I had a lot of great times. Made 1200 cookies with mom. Helped paint my sister’s new baby room (’cause I’m gonna be an aunt). Gallivanted with the eldest sister and told a random dude, who’d we’d nicknamed Chazz, that I was slightly disappointed in his real name–which was Jared.
This is Amanda:
Amanda is full of awesome. That is partially because sometimes she dresses like this:
Amanda and I have been friends since I was in sixth grade, so pretty much forever. After high school, we lost touch until The Power of Facebook. It was pretty awesome to have our ten year reunion in Vegas, not gonna lie.
Whilst in Vegas, as stated, I got to meet two writer chums who are epic in their amazingness. No photos were taken, mostly because we met on New Years, and I didn’t want to ruin a camera. The three of us have decided that this is a state which must be rectified, and thus there will be another meeting. Hopefully we will not break the universe.
However, I did learn that Sooz is an excellent dancer.
And Ms. Sarah has fabulous taste in tights, men, and books.
And I wore this dress:
The moral of the story is: holy CRAP did I have a great time in Vegas and in the US. HOLY CRAP do I want to go back to Vegas. HOLY SUPER CRAP do I want to meet up with my writer chums again (and also this one). And HOLY GUACAMOLE do I want shoes that look like this:
So minions, have you been to Vegas? Did you gamble? (Because I didn’t.) What is the number one city in the states you want to visit? And seriously, how awesome is my friend Amanda?
