a better day in Yokohama, yay ^.^V

My self-given mission was a success today! Yay ^.^V. I was able to find the Animate store at Yokohama Station, and my day was better for it XD.

I read on the internet that Animate is really difficult to find. It wasn't at all, though. It was about a 2 minute walk from the bank at the East exit, sheesh XD;. I spent almost 2 hours just looking around in there... I love that store, so I'm happy I can go whenever I want now, instead of waiting for my random weekend trips to Tokyo.

I actually made it out of Animate without buying anything, though! Kind of ^^;. I went back to Yokohama Station, and in a bookstore, I saw one of the magazines that was plastic-wrapped in Animate, but was not wrapped there. After flipping through the magazine, I immediately went back to Animate and bought the wrapped version XDD;. IT HAS MIURA HARUMA FANSERVICE IN IT, which I think says enough as to why I bought it XD;. There was also some pages of Tomo (Tenimyu Kaidoh <3) and several other actors I've taken to gushing over lately <3.

After going through Animate, I decided to putter around the department stores for awhile... and found a LoFT store, as well as a huge Kinokuniya (book store) and a Shinseido (music/movie store). Jackpot <3. I'm glad my self control is fairly decent at the moment, because I'm waiting on my next paycheck ^^;. I did buy a book from the English section in Kinokuniya though, because I can feel my brain failing sometimes, when I go without reading for too long XD;. I haven't read a single book since I graduated college, I think (about 4 months). Whoops XD;. I bought Wicked by Gregory Maguire, just because I've seen a bunch of advertisements for a Japanese theatrical production of it. Hopefully the book is good ^o^.

I also decided to go visit the Sky Building. On the 9th floor, there's a huge window area, where you can see the bay. It was really pretty ^_^. When I stepped into the elevator to go up to the 9th floor, though, after the doors closed I heard a BANG! into the elevator doors o.O;... I quickly hit the open button, before the elevator could take off, and some woman blew into the elevator saying GOMEN GOMEN GOMEN XD;;;. During the ride to the 9th floor, we had small talk about how the elevator was really strange XD;. It kept on getting darker and darker the higher up the elevator went o.O;. By the 9th floor, it was pitch black in there. Weird o.-.

SO YEAH, anyway, I'll officially forgive Yokohama Station now. I had a really awful time there, the first time I decided to go exploring there (due to my awesome ability to get lost for 2 hours), but I had a lot of fun today ^_^.

Do you know if the Starbucks there give away those free iTunes cards at the counter? Because I was hoping if you had a minute you could grab one for me and tell me the code on the back.

Ahahah~ Good luck on keeping money in your bank account when you're surrounded by so many temptations~!

Hmm, I'm not sure about the Starbucks thing, but I'll definitely check! A week usually does not pass by that I don't grovel to Starbucks for a drink of some sort XD;.

I've got a pretty strong will when I want to, so I don't plan on going bankrupt anytime soon XD;. I'LL DO MY BEST, but probably still buy a few things in the process XD;. What's the point of having money, if you don't spend some of it, right?

Oh, now I want to go shopping T_T *envies* Animate~

Do you have any anime stores where you live ^_^? There are ZERO where I'm from (Missouri, USA), so I'm basically in heaven XD;.

Er. Ignore my random RP journal comment. But transfer that comment over to here. >_< I fail.

Lol, no worries, you can never fail. You'll only have varying shades of awesomeness in my eyes XD.

Your comment:

Yay! I'm glad to hear Yokohama Station is treating you better. Next time you go there, be sure to give it a big hug for me, okay? XD

Wicked is a pretty awesome book. The musical and the book are similiar but also vastly different. Both are excellent though so it's a good pick.

I will indeed give Yokohama station a big hug for you! All of its diseased-ridden pigeons and shady karaoke places included <3.

I'll look forward to reading the book, then ^_^. I want to see the musical-- I love musicals <3. Newsies will always be the #1 musical in my heart, but I'm always open to watching more ^^.

I'd love to go to an Animate store one day. I hear that they're pretty special. *_____* I have a Kinokuniya in Little Tokyo that's near... Chinatown around here, but so far I only go there once in a blue moon. *sigh sigh* XD


I've been reading lately too (not for class!) XD It's good to do that sometimes.

I would be really scared in that elevator. XD;; Perhaps they want to freak you out and then... SURPRISE you on the 9th floor. Did that happen? >.>

*hugs* I hope you continue to have more fun!
