All your life you were only waiting for this moment to be free

It's that time of year when Mom gets photos from all the brothers and sisters and puts them together in one big slide show for all the rellies. I don't know if she's finished the slide show yet, and it's quite long and full of kids, so I'll just post these. I hadn't seen them before, and I thought they were kinda cute/interesting, so here you are.
I've become very mediocre lately. Haven't I. It must be 2008. [BIG SMILE]
I love you.

The two photos above were taken at a show we did in a department store in Goi. It was good fun, especially toward the end when Masa, Gabe, Cherish, Marie and Keiko came out of their warm house to join the throngs of fans in supporting us. My big rush came from having my shoe break in the last couple of minutes before the second show and running through the department store looking for a good deal on a new pair of shoes. Didn't end up finding a good deal, but PTL, I guess he knew I needed some good expensive heels.
I was so proud of myself for actually having thought ahead of hand about my hair, and I thought the boys would love me and be so thankful. Of course, I got "Whoa, what's wrong with your hair?" and "Is it too late to make it normal again?" Sweet boys.

This was at the school, as is fairly obvious. The reason why I like this photo is cause Jan has a huge print out of it that she's trying to get us all to sign. (Extra story: The dear handymen at the HCS setting up the stage decided to give me my own little soap box slash "stage" to wiggle on extending from the real stage, but I was too chicken to use it too much. Actually, every time I looked down I would notice it and feel bad that I wasn't using it, and I would step out on it and groove for a while before I felt a little silly and would step back to join the rest of the band who, as you can see, are squished together like fish.)

Freezing cold show at Loc City in Tateyama. As much as I would've loved to look stylish and risque, I had to opt for the huge jacket and boots and scarf so as not to die of cold. And yes, usually the paparazzi (Uncle James) gets us to pose after every show.

This one was a lot of good fun, because, as you can see, I am singing with dancers behind me instead of a shrieking banging Kando Bando. I realized how much I am used to not being able to hear myself on stage, because I was quite overwhelmed by how loudly I could hear myself when I was singing to puny dance songs. I kept trying to work the mike further away from my face, which obviously is not the way to go--I was just quite disoriented. All that to say, it was a lot of fun, and super cold, GB the girls that had the guts to wear their flimsy costumes. I ran off and boarded a completely stuffed shinkansen, but I made it to Yaizu in time for a funeral, so all in all, it was a very fulfilling day. All that, plus the free coffee machine in the changing room--that was rad.

Hahaha. Sweet.
I've only worn it twice in my life. Once at a wedding and once at a show. They were even spaced decently far apart, clever clothes-wearer that I am.
I guess I am really quite pathetic at coordinating my clothing. I just never considered it a talent worthy of too much strenuous thought.

Thank you for saying such sweet things about my hair, Haven. I liked it too. It made me feel like a rock star (a new and strange sensation).
