Yes, I'm alive! I realized, yet again, that my tweets weren't shipping out *le sigh*
I've been really, really, really bad about checking my flist lately. I seem to be running around doing this, that and the other. I mostly keep up with FB (and to a lesser extent, twitter) via my phone. Since LJ isn't quite so phone-friendly, it tends to be put on the back burner.
Let's see... What's been happening in Amanda Land? Saw tsukigumi twice on maeraku. I missed the mura ochakai, since it was while I was still home in the states. I'm missing Tokyo ochakai because I have to attend my school's Sports Day this coming weekend (then I have my two elementary school undoukai the following weekend on Saturday and Sunday, respectively). Just got my forms for Alice, so need to figure out when I'll see that. This is the first time I'll see Magee in Bow! The last time she was in Bow was when Tsuki did Hoffmann, the winter before I moved to Japan.
A while back, my friend (and next door neighbor) invited me to come home with her to New Zealand during Christmas if I wasn't doing anything. She then decided she was going to go to Africa instead, so those plans kinda got thrown away. However, turns out her Africa trip wasn't going to work out, so she's back to visiting to NZ.
So guess who is now taking a trip to Malaysia and New Zealand this coming Christmas? Her mom, whom I met several months ago when she visited Japan, is ridiculously excited for me to visit. She's demanding to let her take me camping and go on wine-tasting tours.
So here's my winter holiday schedule:
December 21-23: Malaysia (Kansai -> Kuala Lumpur)
December 23-January 7: New Zealand (Kuala Lumpur -> Christchurch)
January 7-9: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur -> Kansai)
While in Malaysia, we might do trip down to Singapore (Only $30 or so US round trip) or somewhere else in SE Asia (as Malaysia is so close to everywhere).
I'm sure I'll share more details once we arrange things. I'm just excited to spend my first Christmas in the middle of the summer!
