I'm back, but only so I could post this, xD:
I normally don't do this shet, but:
In 2007, my friends Leslie and Wendy and I went to downtown LA to go to Jrock Revolution, a large and long concert with Japanese rock bands that flew over just to play for that weekend. It was a great experience, although I could only go the first day. Anyways, I was (and still am) into the Japanese band alice nine., and the drummer Nao was one of the people I was trying to imitate when I was still drumming back up in Norcal. I got him a cymbal clock as a gift, since I was pretty sure I wouldn't be able to see him again unless I went over to Japan or something.
Anyways, he blogged about the flowers and cards and whatnot when he got back to Japan and nothing about the clock, which was a bit disheartening, but I figured that he was too busy to blog about EVERYTHING he got (which was prolly a lot), or he just didn't get it. So I stopped checking blog a couple months after that 'cause I can't read Japanese and translations were getting a little slow.
And Leslie sent me something just now:
Good morning everyone☆
I've been genki all day again today!!
With that said, Nao is going to sleep after this (laugh)
"I put Nao's card inside the cymbal box and kept the alice nine. one outside. We began decorating the box holding the cymbalclock 'cause it didn't have wrapping (although I put the gift inside in a checkered cloth bag), so we began drawing really weird things on the box. Hopefully he won't think we're too weird. (=A=...) "
