All Good Things Come At The End

I had absolutely nothing planned for today, my day off. I know, I know I'm near Tokyo. The gf is busy today so I don't feel like going around by myself.

There are some guitar shops in Ochanimazu near her place but it's not worth going there just for that. Although, it would be nice to see some pretty guitars and things.

I already have too many back home, but it would be nice to have something like a headless, portable guitar I can take anywhere. There are some secondhand Les Pauls going for a reasonable price that are tempting. I guess it will depend on their condition.

What I HAD to do today was my laundry. I have not done one in about two weeks I think. I'm starting to "recycle" my clothes I wore before. Eww.. The washing machine made the biggest noise like it was going to explode. I'm sure Derek and Jesse would have been woken by the sound.

After I hung up my washing I got on the net. I'm trying to sign up for Amazon Japan but it doesn't look like there is enough space to put my full japanese address. I'm thinking of getting some headphones. I don't know if I can wait till I go back to Australia to bring my other pair here. I wish I had brought them.

I also checked out Ebay. I haven't even got paid or my japanese bank account set up, yet I feel the need to spend if you haven't already noticed.

Gf sent an SMS asking about my day and later on asked if I wanted to have dinner with her. It was about 5pm and even though I didn't do too much I was a little tired. I called her back and asked if she wanted to come over here and I'd cook her dinner.

She arrived quite quickly. I hid the garbage bags in a cupboard and walked down to meet her at the station. We went to the supermarket to get some things. I got Calpis, soap, bathroom cleaner, chicken and a bottle of my favourite Brown Brothers Crouchen Riesling wine from Australia! I can't believe it when I saw it there.

I made a rice, vegetables, onion and chicken dinner, and if I say so myself it was a feast. Gf liked it and ate all I had given her. We watched "Blades Of Glory". It's not a bad film but not great. There are some parts that were hilarious though.

After that I showed where Keikyu Tomioka was on Google Earth (It took me ages to find it last night), and also Brisbane in Australia. We went to sleep around midnight. My boring day off has been better than expected.
