Announcement  
Well. I've decided to stay in Japan.

I'm actually going to fly back on schedule Wednesday, since I need to close things out, take care of my stuff and my lease (the last couple of months are probably going to hurt -- I've still got through the end of June left on it, and I'll probably just have to swallow them -- but on the good side, I won't have to buy a ticket to Nippon2007, which cancels out about a month, I guess [edit: duh, I guess I still have to buy the ticket out here]). And, well, it's not like I gave Charlie notice or anything ahead of time here, so I need to close that out too, and I can give him about a month or so.

Anyway, I got a job at a little private 英会話 out near Mitaka. Not really the location I would have picked, I guess, but it's still Tokyo, and it's one of those networking with people who know somebody who knows somebody things. And it's not that far from the station, so it's not too bad.
 
 
In the mood: giddygiddy

Give me back my dvds when you come back. *jealous* :P

I got two words for ya: "Horatio Hornblower." :-P

One of these days I'm actually going to watch those dvds. :P

Is health care cheaper there? Will your new job pay for your surgery?

Are you SERIOUS!?!

Congratulations! You will have a blast; you will pick up speaking Japanese in no time, oh; it'll be great! Way to go Doug, what an adventure! But your IRL friends back here are going to miss you....

Muahahaha. I see now the real reason why you had to stay longer!

You're pretty devoted to this stuff, wow. ;)

So... Better or worse than the sex change announcement? Honestly?

:-P

This is an April Fools Day joke, right? If not, we'll miss you at ConQuest!

If this isn't an April Fool's joke...

Congratulations! I was going to ask you to take me snowshoeing, but I might have lost my chance.

Wow, extremely, extremely exciting!

Well, even if it was true, there still would have been a month or so to take you out somewhere.

As it is, there's not much time left in the season anyway... May's getting a bit late, depending on how the weather goes.

Wait a minute... is this an April Fools joke? If not, will you be able to bring your kitty with you? Can we come visit you over there? Enquiring minds want to know...
Douglas Triggs: hasturdoubt72 on April 2nd, 2007 08:51 am (UTC)
Actually, the cat angle would have been very painful. Having looked into it before, it's one of the things that would lead me to not want to go.
asakiyume: mirokuasakiyume on April 1st, 2007 11:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, now wait a minute. Is it, or is it not, an April Fool's Day joke?

It occurred to me later on in the day that it might be that. I'll believe anything, so, well--either way!

Laurel Amberdine: duckyamberdine on April 2nd, 2007 02:08 am (UTC)
I say he's obliged to follow through now. Mean Doug, getting people all excited like that!
Douglas Triggs: duckdoubt72 on April 2nd, 2007 08:52 am (UTC)
But you... You know me too well. :-P
