All my bags are packed (not really), I'm ready to go (and how!)...♪ ♪
Goodbye, steaming armpit of the world!
In two days I will leave the humid hell that is Tokyo summer and go back to Canada for an extended vaykay. Soon to come are days of barbecuing on the veranda while drinking beer (a big no-no in Japan) and having my fucked up English (Japan does this to you) ridiculed by all my friends.
I know all of you are wondering what will happen to mon chat, Mochi. Never fear, his vet (where he is extremely popular) has a pet hotel, and he will be getting premium care while I'm gone. Only the best for my boy!
Tokyo Nights will be back in operation on August 20th.
In major bloggie news: I am changing sites. I've decided that shelling out money on this site for basic services I could get for free elsewhere is stupid. No offense to Typepad, since it was Tokyo Nights' first home, but I'm moving on to greener, freer pastures. I will post the link for the new site when I get back from holidays.
The direction of the site will also change. I never meant for this blog to become a list of negative complaints about my life in Japan. I really do enjoy living here (unless it's VISA renewal time...or I'm moving apartments), and want to feature more of the positive sides of Japan.
The new Tokyo Nights will still have commentary on life in Japan, but regular features will be fashion and shopping news, reviews of bars/restaurants, news updates for foreign residents, etc. If anyone has questions about Japan they'd like answered, feel free to send them to me. I get the odd question from time to time and am happy to help!
To tide you over until I get back, here are some before and after pictures of Mochi; the cuteness, and the lard ass who doesn't quite fit in the box he recently claimed.
