Ever get the feeling that something bad is going to happen to you? I’m feeling like that now.
Yesterday on my way home from work, my boss and I were descending some stairs to get to our train. On the very last step I caught the heel of my shoe on the hem of my pants and tripped myself. There were flailing limbs and some amazing acrobatics, but I landed on my feet next to my boss, who looked bewildered but was laughing. Whew.
Today I repeated this twice in Omotesando. There are these areas on the ground all over Tokyo with textures on them. This is supposedly to help blind people navigating the city (these are usually found at train stations and street corners to define where to go). But I suck at walking on them – the lines and bumps they put on them are just tall enough to mess up my footing. I nearly ate it twice this afternoon while wandering around.
Thus, I feel I have cheated my due humiliation long enough. I don’t know when, and I don’t know how, but I sense that somewhere in the near future I am going to publicly humiliate myself.
I’ll let you know how it goes! 🙂
I was in Omotesando today doing some filming for a new video! I still need to gather some more footage, but I’m excited about this one – it’s one I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. I actually planned this one out rather than just winging it like I usually do. I think the result will be much better. I’m looking forward to putting it all together!
Today was my one day off this week – it was a crazy few days. My boss told me that after the run I ought to take the following Friday off. I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself if I’m given a three day weekend! I’ve got to start planning now! Any ideas are welcomed.
Thinking of starting a separate “ArishaInTokyo” twitter feed – I’d rather not use my old one, although I’ve been posting updates on it. But having a new twitter might increase my nerdiness tenfold. Would anyone out there be interested if I did start one? My internal debate continues!
That is all.
