What The....
Its 12.06am March 10th 2006....
Location... Humble Abode of Tara...

Becky is currently skitzing out and babbling almost incoherently due to lack of sleep and lack of decent food. (fish and chips, pad thai, vegemite sandwiches and a plethora of other new zealand foods which make no claim of having anything to do with nutrition...)

you will pleased to know (as I am) that she has - at great length - found a place to stay in Tokyo, which happened at approx. T-minus 14hrs... thus cementing her status as the queen of procrastination.(no train stations, or japanese love hotels for this one... although the ueno park zoo was top of the list for sometime...)
But what might you ask - is a new zealand girl from the upper class wops, doing traipsing off to japan amid the cold frosts of winter... the answer lies in the apparent ignorance and naievity of the Japanese Government... who have been mislead by a local university who shall remain nameless... but starts with an A and ends in a UT. A Univiersity ACTUALLY endorsed an exchange with a Japanese University.... enter Becky.... stage left.... no your other left... no not my left YOUR left...uhhh dang it... hang on a moment folks... Becky is tangenting...

It is not only Becky's charm, beauty and charisma that will help her take over this small island of Japan (miss universe anyone??) but also her down to earth personality (I want world peace... and harsher punishment for parole violators Stan...)
example.... on a recent treasure hunt expedition, after burying a certain large amount of candy on a local beach... an hour into the digging it became apparent that perhaps it was buried a little too well..

It was never recovered.

*note to anyone living near the aforementioned beach (Browns Bay to be exact) there is $15 worth of candy somewhere near the vicinity of a large pine tree.... help yourself.*

as you can see - with such skill and talent - it is no wonder that she will soon take over the land of the rising sun.... (didn't we do that last night brain?... no pinky its the same thing we do every night... TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!) either that or she will be deported back to New Zealand in a small box with just the one breathing hole...
that will ultimately be fedex'd around 14 different countries until they finally get it back to the correct address....

so there it is... there are only 6 and a half hours till departure.... Becky is stuck between exhaustion and the the overwhelming decision of whether to take her laptop or her guitar... (oh what if i get someone in the line to carry on something for me?) No Becky.... No....

So this will be a progressive description and detail of Beckys adventures (misadventures) in the land mentioned earlier in my piece... please enjoy her ramblings ... as im sure I will... but not too much....

So until next time....same bat time... same bat channel....

By Tara... with an incoherent Becky in the background.

You've Done It!!!!
Hey! When you read this you'll be in Tokyo! Sugoi!!Hopefully not with some dodgy homeless Japanese man in Ueno park under a blue tarpaulin.
Captain D (who also says Konnichiwa) and I sent you all our good thoughts this morning when you texted. It's hard leaving huh! Did you cry hysterically??????? Yours and Tara's efforts were excellent and sounded very much like you just typed up a typical conversation.
Hope it's all going well. We're looking forward to reading your stuff.
Let me know when you understand da te.
Luv
Katie and Daisuke
