This week I have: barbecued while drinking vodka and wearing the floppy burgundy hat I bought the other week; celebrated Halloween with my English Club (no recipe, as I only have the one photo - above - that I snatched at 7.20am before I went to work. No lighting, no set-up, no judgement please. Also they were pumpkin spice cupcakes, and they were pretty mediocre, and I don't blog mediocre recipes, my friends); watched a lot of How I Met Your Mother; picked mikan with freaking adorable elementary school kids and got very sunburned; bought 3m of steel chain, and superglued a whole packet of cigarettes to a pair of sunglasses. That's where I'm at right now.
So... I'm making plans for November. Aspirations? I don't know. It's kind of a to do list, but more a sort of want to do list. Hosting a -belated- Halloween party! NaNoWriMo! Attending a Japanese tea ceremony with the ladies in my eikaiwa (English conversation group)! Maybe... possibly... asking the person I like on a date. I might not use the word 'date'. I might just go the sneak attack route: 'oh, isn't this nice, that we're hanging out, together, a bit like a date OH MY GOD MARRY ME.' I don't think anyone could say no to that. And I want to clean up my diet a little after what has felt like a lot~ of sugar recently (but it can totally wait until after Disneyland and the Halloween party, right?). I get excited about this kind of thing.
I have a request, guys. An ideas request. I've been thinking about what kind of a month I want November to be, and in short; I don't want to waste it. Set me a challenge? It can be food-related, reading, exercise, social life, Japan-focussed... whatever. Unless it's replying promptly to emails... I can't make any promises when it comes to that (sorry, guys! sorry! really sorry!). And, what are you planning for November?
