On A Mission In Shinjuku

I finished from the Yokohama school yesterday much earlier than last week because now I do an earlier shift. I met up with gf at Yotsuya where like everywhere else it was raining quite hard.

Today I had a few things that needed to be taken care of. I finally have my bank card so yes, I can get money out but, I can't really because it looks like at the moment there isn't any money there to take out. I've been told the money should be in my account the 13th or the 14th.

We went to Shinjuku. First, we went to HQ. They asked me to fax them a copy of my passbook. Seeing that I was going to go there anyway I decided to walk into the office instead and get them to do a photocopy there. I was very casual and unshaven so this may not have been the best idea.

At HQ, I bought a can of "V x 11". It's an energy drink like the "V" energy drink we have in Australia. This must eleven times better right? Well I think it tastes very similar, but I don't think it was as strong as that.

I bought a pretty cool tshirt with a jap cartoon guitarist playing in front of amps.

It says on it, "To danger, I will pay no heed" and "I don't want to put the doubt in your mind, in my head you're just fine".

What tha? Well that's what I want. Shirts with bad english or something cool written in japanese.

We went to look at a guitar shop but half of it was closed for renovation. I tried the expensive version of the guitar I was looking for but I REALLY am not looking to spend $2000 on a guitar. It was ok but I wanted to try the guitars in the closed part of the store. It really annoyed me that I couldn't.

Finally I also got the screw for my sunglasses and they didn't charge me for it. I'm sure having gf there helped me not having to speak japanese to the staff.

I got a new pair of headphones. I spent eons trying to decide which one to get. I checked all the specs and I felt sorry for gf looking at me in disbelief that I would take so long. Gf picked up some really nice new pants she had altered.

All in all a really productive day! :D
