Tokyo Apache Win + Random Sights


SO proud of my man and his team for their spring-loaded game last night. The Tokyo Apache played the Takamatsu Five Arrows in a showdown that kept me on the edge of my seat... our Mr. Byron Eaton (or Byroni as we lovely call him) shot a beautiful 3-pointer in the last 0.2 seconds to tie up the game, taking us to overtime. It was our first overtime of the season, and it had me holding my breath. Luckily, we ended overtime winning by 1 point.

Score 79 to 78.  Five game winning streak for Apache, yall! So proud of my Casey, daddy Coach Bob Hill, and all our boys.

After the game, I met some fabulous new acquaintances (Hi Misha, Justin & Donan!) and hung out with my new girl Mai ...


Check out Mai's blog. She's a supa' fly chick who likes to party hearty. Rather plugged-in to the Tokyo scene. Mai is such a sweetheart and so petite and bubbly.

Everyone, say hello to my fabulous friends Katie May and Chanyn...


Before I came to Tokyo, Casey Fiance regaled me on many occasions with stories about the great sunsets he witnessed from our apartment. I have to admit, they are spectacular...


And on particularly clear mornings, you can see regal Mount Fuji off in the distance, covered in snow. We affectionately refer to him as "The Fuj" ...


And now for a new segment I'd like to call :  STUFF YOU WONT FIND IN AMERICA

There are 7-11 chain convenient stores here in Japan, sure. But something about the logo throws me off...

7 & iHoldings? Instead of a dingy office, is there a brokerage firm in the back room? Perhaps Slurpees aren't the only thing being traded across the counter here...
