Team USA's blog as we get ready for WCS 2008!
Okay.. long day.. was EXTREMELY LONG.
We had TV Aichi hang out with us today as we went to Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Asakusa...and it was fucking CRAZY.
We first made our way to Harajuku and to put it plainly.. its fabulous. Stores all over the place. We also got gifts! Renee got this awesome EGA/Classic Lolita outfit and I got this Punkish style with some kickass Doc Martens, totally boss since none of the button up shirts fit me. Damn these tits! I also got one of the greatest crepes with strawberries EVAR! Glorious indeed!
We went to Shibuya where Renee proceeded to geek out over the 109 and other crap that she's seen in TWEWY. We were there for a total of 2.5 second before we headed over to Asakusa. Traditional wasn't even the word for it, more like WTFAMIINTHEEDOPERIOD?? NANI DESU KA???
We prayed to the temple gods and got fortunes.. which was funny cause Renee and I got the same fortune, wtf.. that never happens. We got red bean buns, oocha and then we ate at the tiniest restaurant everrrr for soba and udon. Again..delicious! OH, so I had to take a raging piss so I asked for the toileto and was confronted with some crazy ass hole on the floor.
And I managed not to miss, A+ and a Gold STAR for Soni! I got to check that off my list of things to do.
Anyways, we headed over to Shinjuku where the other teams are staying (Brazil and France). It was gonna be our hotel also, but we had the one we're staying for an extra day and couldn't cancel, baww. But not too much baww cause our hotel is nice anyways!
So We met France and Brazil and they were nice. You know.. even though we had a language barrier (most with Brazil.. I had to somehow managed to translate despite my extreme lack of knowledge in Portuguese). We did come across some interesting information which we weren't made aware of. Apparently, Gabriel, the male team member of Brazil made a Goku costume from DBZ and was not allowed to bring it because DBZ's company said to TV Aichi "Yo, brosephs, none of that noise on TV!" So... that was that. Duly noted.
But yea, everyone was exhausted, I'm exhausted and I'm about to go to sleep cause tomorrow we get into our MKR costumes, meeting the Vice Foreign Minister.. in costumes (facepalm.jpg) and then traveling to Nagoya tomorrow night via shinkansen (bullet train...whattt) where we'll proceed to meet the other teams.
I'm much too tired to upload videos or pictures plus we haven't done the converting cause its not my computer I'm on so I'm not going to download anything, baww. I'm keep record of everything.
