Here's Part 2 of my Part 3 adventures in Japan :)
again, sorry about the whole LJ cut not working thing. I tried 2304932430932509 times. >.<
I GOT MY PHONE! Omg it's brilliant. It's gorgeous. It's amazing (though not as amazing as the $700-900 ones---mine was $338). It came with a 2GB SD card, but I can't put anything on it because my computer doesn't have a card reader...I'll have to buy one when we get the chance to go to Akihabara (the nerdy geeky computer district). It makes music when it opens and closes, it has a 3.2 megapixel camera =), it's pink, it's got a HUGE inside screen, and all Japanese phones come with internet! I went with Softbank because my LEP has it and she said that it's free mailing (txting) between softbank users. Also, most of the exchange students are getting Softbank as well.
It took THREE HOURS to get the phone. THREE HOURS! And you wanna know why? All because my name on my Credit Card and Student ID card is "Janelle Canosa" but my name on my passport, alien registration, and Insurance card is "Janelle IRENE Canosa." So apparently the machine couldn't process the fact that there were two different names yet still the same name...Because Japanese people don't have middle names. But it's okay that it took so long (although I felt bad for Anna and Maika) because 1) we were sitting next to a HUGE poster of SMAP
(not Arashi but still nice to look at), and 2) I love Japanese music and that's all that played through the speakers (besides the random Beatles songs and that song from the Little Mermaid...the one she sings about wanting to be where the people are). A song by Greeen (another group I like) came on and I told Anna who it was (I'm trying to teach her JPop since she's more into Visual Kei stuff) and Maika heard me. She was, of course, all surprised that I knew them and from then on every time a song came on she would ask if I knew who they were haha. I got a few :D
So we finally got the phone. I got to choose my own last four digits of my number lol. So I chose 0621 because of my birthday. I also got to choose my own passcode thingy. I can't wait to decorate it and make it all pretty =)
On the way back, there was this random picture of Sho, from Arashi. So I took a picture hehe. I can't resist taking pictures of them! We also stopped at this bookstore right down the street sorta from our dorms. It's got allllll those magazines I love! I had the hardest time trying to pick one. But I chose Myojo because it had the better poster/photoshoot inside XD
Today I went to Shibuya and met up with cutetakato, jliann, and yuckie-chan. :) I'll write about that in my next post~
Tomorrow my roommate and I are going to go to Akihabara...hopefully we're gonna get a printer so I can print out the form to mail in my House Foods barcodes for the Disney Dream Arashi thingamajig. XD
I'll post again after that!
