My friend, Jennice, is finally back home from Japan! After not seeing her for a year, we finally got to meet up, catch up on life, and go on a carne asada fries spree. Here’s her welcome back gift: a letter in Uglydoll stationary, an origami Chansey, origami boxes with lucky stars, and a Tamagotchi. Yay, welcome back!
This was part of a gift that Lester and I gave to her. I made some origami boxes filled with lucky stars with lucky cats printed on them. I got the origami paper from a bon odori at the Buddhist Temple of San Diego a long while back. I don’t remember where I got the lucky star paper from. All I know is that I have an insane amount of it
Before meeting up with Jennice, Lester and I went to Downtown to kill some time. We ended up at Ghirardelli in Gaslamp Quarter. Nothing like two scoops of chocolate ice cream, mmm.
We liked it so much that we had no problem finishing it, even though the ice cream was melting fast due to the heat. What’s your favorite kind of ice cream?
We were finally able to meet up with Jennice and picked her up from her apartment. From there, we made a stop to Lolita’s in Clairemont Mesa, where we treated her to carne asada fries. The contents of carne asada fries are simple: french fries, carne asada meat, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole. That’s it. I can’t even imagine how many calories this has, but it’s so good! It’s even tastier when topped with lime and hot salsa.
Carne asada fries carnage. I can’t eat this everyday, but if I don’t have it for a long time, I really crave it.
Afterwards, I hung out with her for a while at her apartment, looking at all of the goodies she brought back from Japan. This is one of them: a bowl from K-ON. Does the pattern look familiar to you?
Rest in peace, negi ;(
A K-ON metal CD that Jennice got from Comiket. I’m listening to it right now: there’s a Dragonforce x Fuwafuwa Time mashup! Also, Mio is riding a unicorn. A UNICORN. MIO AND UNICORNS. WAT.
She got me a Touhou bag with the characters from Imperishable Night. If you look at the bottom, Reisen Udongein Inaba is getting crunk Kaguya, Tewi, and Eirin are also seen at the bottom.
She also got me a Touhou wallscroll with Marisa and Reimu! It’s small, too! Good thing I have space on my walls to hang this; it’s so beautiful! She won this in a UFO catcher.
Not mine, but hers: some doujinshi she picked up at Comiket. One involving Fujiwara no Mokou of Touhou and a Macross Frontier doujin. Notice Ranka is wearing Sheryl’s clothing.
And here’s Sheryl in Ranka’s clothing. She looks rather cute in it
Here’s everything all together! Now I have some things to decorate my cubicle with Again, thank you for the stuff Jennice! And we’re glad to have you back home
