I’m back in Japan! A lot of stuff has happened in the 5 days I’ve been back, and a lot of stuff happened in my absence. But I’ll write about that over on Lucky Hill. When I have time, that is.
I picked up GACKT’s DVD set VISUALIVE ARENA TOUR 2009 REQUIEM ET REMINISCENCE II FINAL〜鎮魂と再生〜 (“chinkon to saisei,” meaning “requiem and rebirth”) this past Wednesday. Back in December when I picked up RE:BORN, I had gotten a coupon for a free GACKT aluminum water bottle with the purchase of the RRII DVD. The coupon expired a couple of weeks after what was the release date for the DVD at the time. But since the DVD got pushed back, and I never went to Tower Records to see if they were issuing new coupons, I wondered if my expired coupon would suffice. It did!
I haven’t had time to watch the DVDs, but hopefully I will during Golden Week. I don’t think I’m going anywhere. If someone else plans it I will, but I don’t feel like dealing with it. I’ve traveled outside of Fukuoka for three months in a row! Tokyo for New Year’s, Seoul in February, and I just got back from the States. I don’t know how other JETs do it, rolling around all over the place! I’m tired! Not to mention, it’s such a hassle to have to worry about taking back omiyage, making sure I leave enough space in my luggage and such. Geh.
Well, I’m gonna try to clean up my apartment. It’s time to turn the kotatsu back into a regular table, among other cleaning chores. And ironing. Blaaaah. Hm, maybe I can iron while watching the DVDs without burning an iron-shaped hole into my clothes? ^o^
