As usual, I've been poor at posting. I hope that will change after we move and things die down a little. It turns out that being kicked out of our apartment by our nutso landlady was a good thing because we're moving into a much nicer place. Things always seem to work out for the best. I'm glad all that stressing is over. I was so afraid we would have to move into another crappy place, but instead, we're moving in a BRAND NEW apartment in a good area. I'm half waiting to see what's wrong with the place. Anyway, we move in November 9th. That day can't come fast enough. The longer I'm in this place, the more I hate it! I can't wait to move!

Some pics, of course...
The main room:

The kitchen....Well, it's hardly a kitchen, but anyway....

The main bathroom...This is exciting stuff. Many Korean apartments don't have bathtubs. I haven't had a full sized bathtub in over five years.
The main bedroom (the biggest of three):The second bathroom...I don't know why a place this size has two bathrooms. We won't use the shower in here...I'll likely use it as my makeup room.

So there it is. I'll take pictures for sure after I'm finished decorating. Decorating probably won't consist of too much. Probably jsut some drapes, but it'll be exciting to move in nonetheless.

In other news...not much. Been keeping busy with moving plans mostly, like ordering a few new pieces of furniture, the most exciting of which is bed. Now that I think of it, it's pretty amazing that I've lived here for over five years without a bed or a bathtub.

Last Saturday night, Meg, Shelley, and I were paid guests at a wedding. We were each paid $50 to pretend to be friends of the groom so he could appear to be more worldly and have more friends. He actually hired a movie director to direct his wedding. Kind of sad, but we got a nice steak and a bit of cash out of it! Here's us after working hard at the wedding:

Oh yes, most importantly, another WIP...An Inspired Lace Scarf, a pattern I found on Ravelry. I think I'm going to keep this scarf for myself, although I originally intended to give it to Meg for her birthday. I think she would like another colour better, so I'm viewing this one as the practice run. So far, so good! It's an easy pattern, pretty, and it crochets up really quickly.

That's it for me. Tomorrow's Friday! And Saturday is my birthday dinner!

Paid guests at a wedding...that cracks me up. I remember going to weddings in Korea and being in all the pictures, to make them look more exotic...they were actually my friends' weddings though.

Here in Japan you can make heaps of money if you're a white guy pretending to be a priest and you marry people, but I've never heard of the fake guests here. Because you have to shell out $200-500 to attend a wedding reception, usually everyone knows each other pretty well!
