The Fukyu Line

Beginning today, Tokyo has it's newest, and probably last metro subway line.

The Fukutoshin Line adds a new link between Shibuya and Ikebukero. For short, I've dubbed it the "Fukyu Line".

Have I ridden on it yet? No, why? To get to Ikebukero? No, thanks. I will spare myself any time in "Ikky", wasteland of Pachinko's broken dreams.

It's no coincidence at all, but today is also the anniversary of being with the gf.

The time has gone by quickly. While there have been a few hiccups along the way, I think I've made it this far relatively unscathed. I guess I should be happy that it's one of the few that have gotten this far.

Only time will tell. Wish me luck.

Over the last couple of days, I've been watching a Yahoo Auction with the same Invaders Of The Mummy's Tomb that I used to have.

With an original price of 4000 yen, I thought it was a reasonable price to buy back my memories. Tonight the auction ended at 7000 yen. No, I didn't win it.

I was more than a little disappointed to let it go once more. I guess I'll have to just keep on the look out until I finally get it.
