Topic: Away

I brought up the topic a few weeks back about people dying and no one notifying their friends and then their friends keep wondering why they never return their mail. Well I am going to be going away for a while at the end of next month. I'm not dying, although I wish I were, but I am facing some difficulties and I won't have access to the internet for a while.

For those of you with whom I maintain a regular dialogue through PMs and regular posts I just wanted to let you know.

I may chime in a few times before I leave but I am going to start to get busy and won't have much time for fun stuff.

Best Regards,

Tachyonblade

Re: Away

Hello everyone, I am back for now. Thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragement. I am now living in Guam. There is absolutely nothing to do here and I have no friends but I needed to get away from Japan for a while. I also needed an American junk food fix. They eat a very healthy diet in Japan but after nine years of it I really loved my first meal at Taco Bell, a place I usually only went to once a year when I lived in the states.

Anyway, you guys are all I have right now so i really look forward to some stimulating interaction.

Can you believe this...no one at the hotel where I work knows who Boba Fett is! No joke!

Man! I want to cry.

Re: Away

Japan!? Guam?! You really travel around Tachyonblade. So you were glad to eat something at Taco Bell; I guess it would be considered junk food compared to how they eat in Japan. Sounds like the people of Guam never heard of Star Wars!

Re: Away

I was under the impression that Japan has McDonalds and almost all the Yum! brands (such as Pizza Hut, KFC, Long John Silvers, and A&W).

Re: Away

Except I don't think Mexican food has ever caught on (evidently). It's interisting how some countrys don't have every fast food type chain we have here; just last week I learned that theres not a Dunkin Donut's to be found anywhere in Italy. Some things just don't catch on I suppose.

And hey! Good to see you 'round these parts again! After so long I was getting worried something might've happened. There hasn't been much discussion lately, but feel free to join in.

Re: Away

Once again, sooooo happy to be back and even better from Japan. I gave up on Guam because the average I.Q. was jutst a little higher than a bucket of paint. I hate to over-generalize but I am a trained anthropologist so I am not going to make excuses for my attitude. I have lived in five countries, four continents and I can say with a great deal of confidence that Japan is a better place to live than Europe, the Middle East, the American mid-west, and most other places I have lived or visited.

Anyway, really looking forward to getting back in the scene with you guys.

I truly love the BFFC.

Happy to be back here, happy to be back in Tokyo.

FYI
I can't believe it but I now own a real 1970s Blue Snaggeltooth!

Re: Away

Welcome back, tachyonblade! I hope to visit Japan someday; you have quite a recommendation given all the places lived.

I grew up in Orange County, Costa Mesa...that's my very favorite place in the world - but that's more about being a kid in the 1970s playing with my Star Wars guys and digging on So. Cal. 70s culture, than it is about the place itself. But it was a great place to grow up.

Re: Away

Actually I was saying that those restaurants are in Japan. In fact my dad was on a business trip there and ate at McDonalds. He has pictures of this.

I seem to have been wrong about Long John Silvers though, they aren't in Japan.

Oh we have McDonalds out the ying-yang... everywhere you go you can find one. There is one station here in Tokyo from which you can reach seven (7) different individual MDs within a ten minute walk in any direction, no joke, no exaggeration. 

Sadly no Taco Bell and no LJS, Burger King just came back after going bankrupt a few years ago.

Re: Away

Sorry to double post but this one deserves its own...

As some of you know I have been living in Guam for the past couple of months...

Well after dealing with just as much crap there as I was here I decided to return to Japan...

I just got an email that my room mate there, who was also the manager of the property, was arrested two days after I left for sexually assaulting a 13 yo boy after getting him drunk! The owner of the house returned to Guam and everyone living in the house was kicked out and my room mate  is now in jail awaiting trial. My room mate is the type of guy who you could never imagine being capable of doing such a thing, very responsible, clean-cut, friendly, works as a middle-manager at a local luxury brand boutique etc, but it seems that he invited three underaged boys to his room to watch a porno and got them all drunk and then molested one or two of them!

Talk about good timing! I think the force was with me on that one...

Re: Away

That's just...um...wow. I guess outward appearences really aren't everything. It's a really good thing you left when you did, then. Having to deal with all that, that'd be a huge mess....

Re: Away

Sorry, I guess I misunderstood you then. Before when you said you wanted an American junk food fix and that Japan had nothing like that I thought you meant they had no hamburger places there. And, yeah, McDonalds are all over, tons of them. We have four of them in our tiny little town. Don't much like their hamburgers, Wendy's and Burger King are better for that. I do like the chicken sandwiches and pies though.

I only eat chicken and fish,  no cow, pig, sheep, kangaroo, rat, dog or any other kind of cooked flesh so hamburgers are not really my thing anyway. I do hit the the Mac-fish from time-to-time and the BK Bigfish is not too bad here. But none of it tastes the same as it does back home. So Guam was nice for that if nothing else.

Re: Away

Ah, that explains it. I don't eat a lot of meat either. Mainly just hamburger, chicken, and turkey. I'll eat things like sausage and hot dogs too but I don't like ham.

Uuugh hot dogs. Hate to barge in and add my 2 cents, but I really, really hate hot dogs. Just the smell of them cooking from far away is enough to make me feel sick, but to see them too...and see them being eaten.... ><;

It is clear that you have never had a good hot dog. I hated hotdogs when i was younger, now my favorite restaurant is Arbetter's Hotdogs.

Re: Away

Have you ever tried any of the all natural hot dogs? The ones without sodium nitrate, that part is important so make sure there isn't any in it. Cause that stuff actually adds quite a bit of the "icky" taste.
