I went to Tokyo last week with Naoko and Hannah and it was the fastest, funnest, and most exhausting week of my life.

In fact, I'm still exhausted, so I'm going to call it a night.

Here's a video of Naoko and me running out of a haunted house in Tokyo. I hate haunted houses:

More pictures to come. Don't be alarmed if most of them are sticker pictures. Naoko insisted we take one each day that we were there. Indeed we did. Indeed we did.

I do love Tokyo. It's one of my favorite cities. Here are my favorite cities, in no particular order:

South Pasadena
New York City

Ok, I'm seriously going to collapse. And I have to finish Harry Potter before someone ruins it for me.

How was everyone's 4th?

I had a pleasant one, thank you. Ate entirely too much, but that's the American way. And if you ain't down with the American way, they say to go home to where you came from. I went to the Hollywood Bowl July 4th Spectacular on Monday and they showed a clip of Gene Autry singing a song with those exact words. Ohh, you should have SEEN the reaction on people's faces. It was quite inappropriate to say those things in Los Angeles. I was offended. It's like showing a clip of Mickey Rooney's Yellow-Face buck-toothed man from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" on the big screen on Chinese New Year. Well, kind of. The latter is probably a lot worse, but still.

Back at work. Tired as hell. Glad that today is Friday and it's the ACTUAL weekend. I wonder what I'll be doing. I've been out way too much the last month, and it's hurting me in more ways than one.
