There's so much of my stay in Japan to catch up on--the last couple of days of the seminar were busy-busy, and then once I moved to the hotel in Shinagawa, I only had an Internet-cafe connection, *sniffle*. But I'm home now, and the pictures I wanted to post over the past week are ready and waiting--so after a little breather to deal with the jet lag, I'll go back and bring you all up to date. I had such a wonderful time--I can't even begin to describe it all, so I'll just say, if you haven't been to Japan and are at all inclined to travel, go. Absolutely go.

Oh. Make that a breather to deal with the jet lag and to satisfy Miss Claudine's curiosity . . .

CLAUDINE (poking experimentally): So what is this, anyway?

ME: It's the 1000-yen wheelie bag that I bought from the old guy in Asakusa. Kawaii, desu ne?

CLAUDINE: I hope a thousand yen was cheaper than it sounds. That's all I have to say. Um, why is it so huge?

ME: Actually, it's a very nice compact carry-on size.

CLAUDINE: Huh. It's bigger than I am. . . . OMFG, you didn't buy another person, did you? There are so many people here already that I can't remember all their names. I bet you went and bought another person, that's what I bet you did.

CLAUDINE: Well? Are you going to open this thing and let me see who's in there?

ME: There is not a BJD in that bag, Claudine. Okay, I did buy a 1/6 girl, but I don't think she counts as a person in your cosmology.

CLAUDINE: 'Scuse me? I'm just a doll, I don't do big words.

ME (resigned): No. Person.

CLAUDINE: Oooooooo, then you mean it's all presents? For me? Is it clothes and shoes and cool stuff?

ME: Presents for our friends, Claudine. That's what friends do--they get presents for each other when they go to fun places.

CLAUDINE: Oooooo! It was so nice of you to bring me this huge ugly bag full of presents from Japan! Come on, come on, come on, open it up and let me see what I got!

(to be continued . . .)

Yaaay, I'm glad you are back safely!

Nice to know Claudine hasn't changed a bit in your absence.

*glomps* Welcome home!! I often thought about you and figured you were really busy and having a good time. I look forward to seeing your photos of your trip to Japan SOON!!

Welcome back!!
Since you're home now, I will ship off a nice package to you on Monday!

Oh, Claudine... Girl sometimes needs a little spanking for mouthing off! xD
[And here I was... hoping you did bring home someone. :O]

Welcome back! Claudine is so pretty, i love her in that wig and cute outfit!
Cant wait to see the rest of your photos!

Welcome home, bet you missed all that attitude. *g*

*glomps* Hey, I remember you!!!

And bless Claudine ... the truth's finally out: she doesn't like white and blue polka dots on a field of blue. Whew. That must have been a relief to get that off her chest. Still, it is nice to see you were "properly" welcomed home. Nothing quite like a blond princess to make you feel missed. ;)

*more glomps*

*hughug* welcome back to the midwest~ X3

ARRRRhhhhggghhhh! What's in the bag???

sorry, I'm terrible about this stuff, lol!!

Welcome back and I hope you had a wonderful time in Japan!

(very cute photos also :)

Yay, welcome home! I *love* the bag, I'd have gone back for it, too. And it's good to see that Queen Claudine kept the troops in line while you were gone. Oh, she cracks me up. Pretty outfit Miss Thing has, btw.

<3 Claudine <3

That wig, and those shoes, are extra-adorable on her!

I'm so glad you're back safely, and I can't wait to hear all the stories you have to tell about the latter part of your trip!!

*huge hugs*

-- A :D

Missed you - looking forward to travelogue!

Claudine looks so incredibly cute here! I love that wig on her.

Welcome Home!

I love Claudine's whole outfit. The shoes are really cute and of course her wig is great! I love the color.
