I’ve always believed that the best kind of friends are the ones that even if you don’t see them as much as you would like, you’d be all okay and happy and supportive during the rare times you do get to see each other.
I am lucky to find that kind of sisters with F and A. I’ve relayed before how I met F (that is–through my good friend G, who used to work with her). F and I are both in love with the same
So, when I first met F, our world revolved around the aforementioned
Greek God guy, and the guy’s band, the super genius, talented and sexy INCUBUS. But then, my crazy Asian-fanatic side reared its ugly head and conveniently SHOVED F down the path of “pretty boys and idols, undecipherable foreign language and such”, and she is now way, waaay down the dark side (cue: maniacal laughter here).
A good two years later, F introduced me to her good friend and my fellow Nihonophile, A — who it turned out has a thing for sexy, cute, amusing
boys men, especially one whose birth certificate reads Koike Teppei.
Soooooo — A is another sweet soul sister who shares my passion for
lurking, stalking, fascination with lithe, talented, adorable guys of the Japanese variety.
Anyway, following the sordid, not to mention ANNOYING details of my vile colleagues at work, these two angels suddenly texted (well, F texted) me Friday night and invited me to go to a Open House, especially intended for Asian Pop geeks like us. Her invitation proved to be a welcome respite from my busy schedule at work and the psychotic tendencies I am slowly developing (especially the need to throw people at random from the 16th floor of the office building). The girls and I arranged to go to MOA (where the open house was held) and then have a quick catch up at the same time.
After buying the merch (well, in the case of F), I coerced them into eating at Tokyo Cafe (hey! I keep on bringing people there! Tokyo Cafe should pay me an endorsement fee…like say, a year’s supply of Azuki Parfait):
It was a relaxing and happy Saturday. I wish all Saturdays were like that — unfortunately, I had to go back to the land of the manner-less come Monday.
