Woohoo! 24 hour party people! We stayed up all night in Japan for the first time ever! Is this how young people feel? This is crazy! I think it’s surprising for us as well, because we did this on a Friday night, and we usually work Saturday and Sunday, so we can’t go out and party Fridays. But, in this case, we had made an agreement unwittingly, and had to go through with it. AND IT WAS GREAT! We caught the first subway back to Kichijoji, and were on a train full of really sleepy people. We met someone who knows our videos, and I talked with her for a bit, while Martina tried to fall asleep over and over again. But I wouldn’t let her! No way! If I’m not sleeping, she’s not sleeping. So she got a lot of wet willies to keep her awake. Interestingly, I didn’t pay attention to Martina for maybe two minutes, and when I went back to her to wake her up, she got mad at me for ruining her mushrooms. She was cooking mushrooms and I ruined them! This was all in her dream, of course, but the line between dream life and waking life was too blurry for her. And then I teased her about it for the rest of the day.
On Monday we went to Asakusa. It’s a bit odd, because our lives and our jobs aren’t very separate. Our jobs are to share our lives. And we do that a lot, but we also know that there needs to be a work/life balance in everyone’s lives. You shouldn’t spend every day working. Taking time off is important to recharge. For us, though, when we have our days off of editing and video planning, we still kinda want to be artsy. So we went to Asakusa, without any plans of shooting any kind of video there. We just got our cameras and wanted to take some shots. But now those shots are in our blog post, so was it work or wasn’t it? I’m not sure. Here are the pictures, though. We really liked Asakusa. It’s really pretty there!
Otherwise, we’re doing something a bit different with Eatyoursushi episodes now. We’re working on switching some things up, and one of them is to move our package opening to a different segment. Simply because we feel bad that stuff is going bad. It really makes me sad that so many packages have come in, and we’re taking so long to open them, and as a result some of the stuff has gone bad or melted. Now, we’re going to be more diligent with opening stuff, but we’ll do that on our bonus channel. Here’s the first instalment!
