Yay! Yuka is here. I am so excited that words cannot describe it. I feel all giddy and excited and I just realized that the couch I am on right now will be my bed for the next week. Oh Well. Yuka is here! I spent all morning whimpering pathetically, hoping for my grades to come in and for people to email me back.
I got an A in Calculus II. I am sooo happy. This means that later this week, I can take said credits to UNM and get credit. I love credit!
Anyway, after that crisis, I finished the last cleaning scraps of my room and strolled over to WalMart and Borders over North-ish. I decided to hit Borders first in my quest for a poster for my Harry Potter Madness. I found many a thing instead. I found a collectors Entertainment Weekly, that will be read, shown around to family and then sealed until my great grandchildren find it amongst my belongs after I expire and will probably throw it away. Then I went up to the counter to buy it and had a nice chat with cashier. The lesson I learned today: Be nice to cashiers always. I got four, yes four, of those posters from the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release party, and I didn’t even have to buy the book. They were prepared to give me twenty. It was awesome. I love Borders. They give me a free rewards card and they give me posters when I am nice and chatty with them.
So I made it back home at around 3:00 and then we (my mother and I) hung out, waiting for dad (who got home at around 3:30) and then we picked up Linds from driving hours and headed to the airport. After a debate about the right way to get there, we finally arrived at 4:25 and sat there, anxiously for about 20 minutes. Then I saw the cute form of my dear second cousin (yes I looked up exactly how we are related, and I actually just call her my cousin). I was so excited! Yuka’s English was a bit hard at first but she pulled out the most awesome invention ever (also known as a computer translator) for the parts where translation got kind of rough. We ordered Pizza, and just like last time, Yuka marveled at how large, fluffy and fluffy our crust is.
We eventually pulled out the photo albums and talked about things. Apparently, Uncle Kuniaki (technically, he’s my Great Uncle) is in the hospital for a lawnmower related incident. He’s doing very well. I am just amazed that it was something related to mowing the lawn instead of old age or something. Everyone else is fine though. Yuka is an art teacher at a middle school.
She brought us presents, which I adore truly. What actually prompted presents was the shredding of one of my shoelaces. She brought me Japanese ones. They glitter! **squeals** She also gave us neat pictures, and this nice smelling potpourri thing that makes me smile and these neat rings that remind me of Kimonos. She also brought us the most wonderful sounding wind chime that I have ever heard. Usually I get aggravated with wind chimes because they are so loud but… this one was just perfect. Yuka was pretty tired so we led her to bed (my bed) and I was outcast to the living room. I could have lived with my sister but I think that would have been a fate worse than death.
I am exhausted as well so…
