tokyo, shopping, and stuff

I have been sooooo lazy about blogging lately=_= gomen

Well last weekend I took my husband up to Akihabara and of course he loved it. I think next time we're gonna either go to Shinjuku or Shibuya. It was really cold when we went and raining and I was already sick, so it made it worse for about a week.























































































uh, engrish much?

this phone is from a drama that's popular right now
can't think of the name though..


The day before yesterday I had a hair appointment at the salon on the main base for a hair cut, all well and good. Not! Since my hair is naturally very curly she said I should have come in with straight hair. Ok. Well then she tells me she can't straighten my hair for the cut because I didnt make an appointment for it, and also after the cut she would not style it in any way. This is not her fault actually though, the women that booked me didn't tell me their policy. They only give the stylist enough time to do what is put in the system. So unless I said I wanted a wash,cut,flat iron and style I wouldn't get one. My mistake because I thought it was run like a regular salon where things are packaged for customer satisfaction not how many people you can fit through the door... oh well that's business for you. I will be more aware of this now if I decide to go back for anything..

Anyway after that, I was pretty pissed off so I did the next best thing for me. Shop. First it started with some cheap makeup from the NEX, then got some movies. Then we left to go to Daiei mall and I got this convertable scarf thing thats really cute and soft! cashmere baby!! woo
After Daiei we went to Holmes which is like Walmart/Petsmart/Homedepot/Ikea all rolled into its own entity of a store. Ended up getting a new desk for the computer room, some stuff for my cat so she doesnt shed all over my couch again >.< and some baking stuff ^__^ I started feeling better by the time we went home, still mad about it though.

Yesterday I took my friend nina down to Holmes because she just found out she could get a kitty too and they have a bigger selection of pet stuff in general compared to the NEX. Before we started shopping we stopped off at the McDonalds in Holmes ( Just like walmart right?) and had lunch. I had the Teriyaki McBurger, it was effen delicious!!! I just wish it was bigger...at the booth next to us, there was this lil baby girl in a high chair the same age as nina's son being all smiley with us^__^. Her grandmother was saying the lil girl wanted us to pick her up, she kept waving and holding out her arms to us. She was sooo adorable. We were on a slight timecrunch though so we had to hurry off to the pet area and get started.

Holmes has animals galore and the best part is you don't smell them at all. Unlike petsmart and petco you smell animal as soon as the doors open. They even had a OWL yes an OWL for sale. It was roughly a grand, which is actually the same or less then most puppies at pet stores. I felt soo bad for the poor thing, in a small cage all the lights... its a shame. They have a slew of other animals to choose from including doves?! parrots, parakeets, rabbits,chinchillas,ferrets,guinea pigs, hamster,mice,snakes,iguanas,spiders,turtles,lizards, some chicken like creatures babies, dogs, cats and fish. Also the selection to choose from is kind of staggering as well. A multitude of cages holding different breeds of the same species like lop bunnies, rex bunnies, dwarf bunnies and so on.

Well I think thats all for now til I get a lil better, stupid cold.

I have pics from Holmes, just getting a case of the laziness again... later everyone!!
