Back from Texas! [Jun. 14th, 2008|10:13 am]

...And awake, after a 20-hour nap I took after arriving home. I wouldn't have been so tired if I could have slept in JFK airport (I got there around midnight and my flight was at 11:20 the next morning), but a few minutes after I fell asleep, a security guard woke me up and said I couldn't sleep there. Huh?? People were sleeping all over the place!

Here are a few pictures of webwawa's "Big Sammich" party on the 7th. There were so many people there, and so much food, but I didn't think to take pictures until the end of the night! What was I thinking?


Pretty back yard, where nobody was devoured by mosquitos. There's Wawa!


"After" picture of the sammich ~ not a lot of leftovers.


"After" picture of the rest of the food. antivert and I ate most of those cherries when we woke up.


antivert had a nap in the kitchen.


Wawa's kitties and their eyes!

Laura Wawa is sweet, and adorable, and she has the nicest friends and animals. We felt so lucky to be there!

Ohhhh you're friends with Laura! I was wondering how someone listed as being in Dubai found my journal :)

Did we meet? Because a couple of days ago, I was sure that we had, but now I can't quite figure it out. Were you at Laura's sammich party?

No. I've never met Laura in person! We've been LJ friends for about 5 years. I randomly add journals to read and Laura's is one that I liked so I kept it :)

The beginning of this month was the first time I met her, and we've been LJ friends for about 5 years, too!

Twiggy just moved to Korea to teach English!

Susan used to live in Japan teaching English!

Sweet! I went to Korea briefly in 2002, but not since. My airline flies there daily, but we have so many Koreans in the company that if you don't bid for the flight, you aren't likely to get it - and I pretty much ONLY bid for Osaka, because that's hard to get, too.

But! I have TWO Osaka flights next month! Wheee!

Do you know anyone that lives in Osaka? or do you take a train to visit people while there? is there time?

I went to Osaka a couple of times briefly.. once with Jun on a day trip from Kobe, then another time with my class from school.

The food there was really good.. like TAKOYAKI! Then later I saw on Food Network shows how it's considered the food capitol, duh.

Kobe is only about 18 minutes from Osaka! I do know a few people in Osaka (hey pongatari and rodney_mctaco!), lots of people in Kobe, and lots of people in between.

There's always time... the layover is about 29 hours, and you can do a lot in 29 hours. :-)

The pic of the kitties with reflecting glowing eyes makes me happy. =^..^=

Me, too! It's noisy because the ISO was too high on my camera (it goes up to 12,000 or something). I cropped the picture, which makes the noise stand out even more. Here's the original:



Looks like your kitty and Wawa's paler kitty (Toby, on the left) could compete in a Who Has All The Toes? competition.

mira_kitty has 6 toes on her front paws (1 'thumb, 4 'fingers', and an extra semi-hidden claw in the space between the thumb and first finger), and 5 toes on her back paws (4 regular toes and one dew claw). So she's got 22 toes (more than the 18 of a regular non-mutant kitty). She's *so* evolved! ;)

You are the cutest baldy! I hope you take lots of pictures before your baby hair gets longer, since you likely won't wear that look again.

Don't know how you missed these posts, ha! I didn't backdate them or anything. I still have so many pictures to post, when I'm not so lazy.
