Where in the world is Evil Jim?

Today we leave for Production I.G., Akihabara, Harajuku & Shibiya for lots of whirlwind impulse shopping. I packed last night and dropped my luggage off with H.I.S. staff leaving out only the things I will need until we get to the airport Wednesday morning. I have already resigned myself to mailing home the souvineers I purchase today thereby allowing myself to go crazy. I've been shopping for everyone else all weeek, now it's MY turn!! BWAAA HA HA HA HAAAAA!!

Ahem.

Got some things done yesterday after the morning tour that needed to be done, like finish writing postcards and update the journal, but I also wish I had joined matt_william and Jarred for shopping in Ginza & Akihabara. They found some pretty sweet swag and had all the time they wanted to do so. Tomorrow will be with the tour and everything is on a schedule. There are a few select items I want to look for and a couple stores I've heard of that I plan to check out but everything else will have to be spur-of-the-moment.

I'm not looking forward to the trip home. I'm having such a good time here I'll need at least until the end of the month to do & see everything I wanted. It's not as simple as getting on a plane from Tokyo either. We have to take the subway to JR Rail, then a two hour bullet train back to Osaka airport, followed by a three hour wait for the plane departure and a ten hour flight to L.A. and four more hours of connecting flights to Milwaukee. Oh, then a two hour drive home. An entire day of anticlimax. At least I'll have time to update the dead tree journal for transfer to here. I only hope I can remember it all.

I'll try to update tonite if I can. At eight o'clock it's the "Sayonara Karaoke Night" and I'll be there, having never tried real karaoke before. Hopefully they'll have some Pink Floyd.
