#153- At the Kingpins Show

FASHIONABLY LATE is not for me. I am always PROFESSIONALLY FORWARD or on time for everything/everywhere.

This morning, I got at the Kingpins Show at 9:25am, instead of 10:00am. I wanted to relax before my work (interview people for my article for Senken-Shimbun / major Japanese fashion trade newspaper), so I left my home half an hour early and sat & waited & prepared for meeting/interviewing people at the entrance at the show.

Within 7 hours, I talked with 27 people (includes chat with five people during my one hour lunch time) and I got hand muscle ache (because of writing notes all day)& hip muscle ache (because of standing all day). I had a great day as usual. Being a writer is my lifework. I love what I do everyday.

By the way, the Kingpins Show is boutique global denim and jeans supply chain show. (I can’t write details about this show in my today’s blog, because I am going to write an article about this show in Senken-Shimbun this week.)

But, I can share what I saw,…

#152- Yoko and the Apartment

Too much sex these days…I mean, I have been watching my DVDs (season 1-3 are video tapes and all the rest are DVDs) of TV series “Sex and the City”. I am doing marathon for 94 episodes and I feel like there are four best friends at my home (in front of my couch) everyday.

My past life, my current life and, maybe my future are all in “Sex and the City”.

“Oh…I’ve been there”, “Yeah, me too!”, “Yes, I’ve done that too…”, “Oh…I agree with you!!!”…cry, laugh, laugh, cry, and laugh…I have been enjoying myself at home with many cute & fun episodes…then, on last Thursday…the nightmare (actually, it happened in the morning at 6:50am) came to my life AGAIN (if you want to know about my other nightmares, read my old posts on June 24, 2011, Jan 23, 2011, Dec 26, 2010, etc)…!

My neighbor (who lives above me, Mr. #3**, please read the ending of my last post)’s shower water came to my bathroom’s floor. Hello Mr. #3***. F*** you again :) Do I have to hear from Mr. #3**, “You wish” like Samantha…
