The random bits of life and thoughts

In the past week or so I have
-Gone out with my friends Hideki and Sasakion for okonomiyaki, and caught The Da Vinci Code with Hideki after. I'll not waste your time by posting my thoughts here, but at least I was able to de-bunk the fiction for Hideki.

-Went to a barbeque on the riverside with "the justsystem crew" and Julie, Joanna, Joe, and Mel. Pretty fun. Uklele and shamisen were played, stones were skipped, boats were rowed, the river swum in, and volumes of tasty meat and vegetables were consumed by all. The lamb was especially good. A fun and chill time it was, despite some occasional spitting rain.

-This week my flight plan has probably finally been finalised.
It looks like I'll bus into Osaka on the 17th, and fly out on the 18th, arriving in Beijing at noon that friday. Then I have all day Saturday to explore, and on Sunday August 20th I fly on to London. There I'll hang out with Dan and Natalie Moore for like three weeks, surely doing London, Nottingham, Sunderland, and probably Edinburgh, and maybe if I'm lucky I'll get to see Oxford, too. Then I fly out on September 14th, and the 12 or so hour flight direct to Winnipeg will take technically three hours.

-Today, as you have maybe noticed is Saturday, and I'm at school blogging and mailing. We take what chances we have, eh. So far this weekend has given me nothing to put on the blog, but there's a song that pretty much encapsulates what I've been feeling and thinking lately, especially the second verse. So here are the lyrics for ya:

A Praise Chorus
by Jimmy Eat World

Are you gonna live your life wonderin'
standing in the back lookin' around?
Are you gonna waste your time thinkin'
how you've grown up
or how you missed out?

Things are never gonna be the way you want.
Where's it gonna get you acting serious?
Things are never gonna be quite what you want.
Or even at 25, you gotta start sometime.

I'm on my feet, I'm on the floor, I'm good to go.
Now all I need is just to hear a song I know.
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine.
I wanna fall in love tonight.

Are you gonna live your life
standing in the back looking around?
Are you gonna waste your time?
Gotta make a move or you'll miss out.

Someone's gonna ask you what it's all about.
Stick around nostalgia won't let you down.
Someone's gonna ask you what it's all about.
Whatcha gonna have to say for yourself?

I'm on my feet, I'm on the floor, I'm good to go.
Now all I need is just to hear a song I know.
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine.
I wanna fall in love tonight.

Crimson and clover, over and over.
Crimson and clover, over and over.

Our house in the middle of the street,
why did we ever meet?
Started my rock 'n roll fantasy.
Don't don't, don't let's start, why did we ever part?
Kick start my rock 'n rollen heart.

I'm on my feet, I'm on the floor, I'm good to go.
So come on Davey, sing me somethin' that I know.
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine.
I wanna fall in love tonight.
Here tonight.
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine
I wanna fall in love tonight.

DaVinci Code put me to sleep.
