I hope everyone had a pleasant transition to the New Year! I was up at my Granparent's house and they had this magnificent spread of food XD They had nuts and cheeses and grapes a chocolate pie and a lemon meraigne and crackers, chips, soda...then of course at midnight we had the "Pennsylvania Dutch aka German" meal of New Year Good luck: Sauerkraut, pork, mashed potatoes, and hot dogs....I was sooooo stuffed O________o lol! I wasn't so focused on the whole "significance" of the nostalgic ending of 2004 as I was concerned with the food ^.^ Then, at midnight we toasted with our champagne and watched the ball in NYC drop^^ It isn't New Year's without it!
Well, time now for me to go off and have my Japanese style New Years! I better cram my Jpn vocab O.o
Well, how did I spend my New Year Day?
-Went to Fujiko's for lunch...
Where we had a traditional Japanese New Year's meal complete with red bean ice cream, white rice with daikon, and little crunchable fish (and I mean fish - whole..those little guys were there head, tail and all...O.o..it kinda made me sick when I felt their backbones crunch >.< ewww)!! But after eating, Fujiko and her two Japanese friends all spoke Japanese until 4:45..I was rather lost...something about miso soup, sumo wrestlers, and how cute Japanese kids are in kimono! ^.^ (which they are^^) t was fun, but whenever I try to understand a foreign language, I get burned out...When I got home I enjoyed relaxing on the couch and watching TV for a short time^^ lol
-I also just worked on changes to the setup of my lj^^ I may change it some more yet but it is a start anyways^^ Hooray!
Now I dont know what I shall do though - hmmmahh...Matt's watching some soldier movie - maybe I shall watch that. I should be productive and work on cosplay or Quenya but...nahh^^
