Apparently I'm a MPDG

I always wondered if I was a stereotype of something, and if so, what.

My housemate told me this morning that I'm a "manic pixie dream girl";

A stereotype movie roll. Hmm.

Do I fit the bill?

Do I want to?

Secretly yes. Otherwise I wouldn't post this on my stupid blog.

Also I joined an adult gamers group today and played "the werewolves of millers hollow" in Yoyogi park. Not sure how I feel about it.

Went round to Takuji's afterwards and listened to some of his music, We got taiyaki outside Yoyogi station. It's kind of annoying that a stall selling my favourite Japanese dessert food would open up in the area I just lived for six months after I moved out, but also, for health reasons, its probably a good thing that it wasn't there at that time (still....Cookie Time and Magnolia's bakery pretty much ruined me....).

Before cycling home in the warm Tokyo summer air,  Takuji taught me how to meditate. As someone who is very impatient, easily anxious and generally a bit scatty - trying to meditate everyday is probably the best thing I could do to help keep in control of my mind. We had a ten minute practise meditation session, basically changed my life.

Let the good vibes in - let the alien control mechanisms out.

Tokyo meets thai

Nothing strange about walking about a Thai food festival with a live cat in a backpack. Nothing strange at all.

The road to recovery

Tokyo you beautiful freak.

A flower shop bar. An abandoned bike. A boogie down at Vision. Vegetarian ramen accompanied with loud shouting. Drinking with my neighbours on our street in the early hours of the morning. Ukelele bob dylan sessions. Getting lost on my bike in nakameguro. The love of friends and a million hours on Skype. 

It was the best of times it was the worst of times it was the best of times it was the worst of times but don't think twice it's alright.

Is this how I write these things now? A list of recent experiences, references and quotes that only I will get? Well yes, because this is mine and despite being public it's largely private.

There's so much to look forward to. This summer is going to be magic I can already feel it. 


Special mention goes to Allie and Collin. What a great team of blonde.

It was a beautiful sunny day at yoyogi park and we bumped into the beautiful Nina who looked amazing:
