からのんら – Tokyo

Filed under: Japan 08/09 — witchpig @ 8:11 am

Well we are here. The Pig is taller then most doorways but has only smashed his head once and that was on the train. The pig is also wider then most lanes in shops and has had to be very careful moving about. The witch is in her element. This is just a quick post but in two days we have caught up with friends eaten kidney, chicken skin and other chicken parts he isn:t sure about. The eel and 5 style rice was fantastic as well as sampling a number of drinks and alcoholic beverages. We have spent a day shpping and sight seeing and now we are off to an IPA dinner, 40 minute train trip across town. looking forward to dinner as well. Must skoodattle nbow.

NIPPON!!!

What to do! What to do??? It’s the Pig’s first time in Japan, and I want it to be a blast for him!

As posted, the first 4 nights will be spent in the Tokyo area. We will hopefully meet with my ex-housemate, Pig’s ex-exchange student and some other friends of his.

I was MEANT to be on a diet before going over….shit, that didn’t last.

Trying not to spend any money at the moment so I can have more fun over there, the exchange rate is not very good for us….

Really looking forward New Year’s in Japan…will keep you all posted…

Well thankyou Magda

Jetstar are a bunch of *&^&^. Flights continually changed now we fly to a different location to what we booked and better still we return to Brisbane after catching some form of land transport because our plane will be landing at Coolangatta. Is this an inconvenience? she says No I think it will add to the fantastic experience of public transport and a holiday where we are arriving at a different destination then where we booked. Stick with Virgin, at least they are reliable in my experience. We will pay for any transfers that you will require…Well that should just about equal half of the ticket price for each of us once we catch a Bullet train in Japan and a cab from Coolangatta to Brisbane.

I know this isn’t PC but should I take the opportunity to try some whale meat whilst in Japan?

We have a floor for the first 4 nights

We are off to Tokyo in less then 2 weeks on a much needed Holiday for both of us. Our accommodation is booked for the first 4 nights…After that we will meet with some of the Witch’s family and from there we will just figure it out on the fly. Pack light buy some stuff with our Australian Pesos and come back with more then when we left.

Awesome stuff.

Priest appointment

Filed under: The Wedding — witchpig @ 8:51 am

We met with the Priest recently. He seems like a nice chap! We have a handful of info to go through, vows to be chosen, readings to be chosen, 168 questionaire to be answered! Hopefully, we get the approval to have our wedding outside in Boyce Gardens. I have been told by the Pig not to get my hopes up.

In other updates, WE GOT THE RINGS! We chose them a few weeks ago and picked them up last week! They look fantastic and are safely hidden away until April. Luckily, because I want to wear mine now! (I think the Pig is happy to wait )

No sorry I can’t sell tickets to this.

Battery connected fence is live. How do I know it is on…Stuff the instructions grab hold to confirm that it will jolt. CONFIRMED…Later referred to instructions and yes there is an indicator LED highly visible of a night time that shows the fence is pulsing. The Dorgi watches me connect the battery and once again thinks something is suss. He chooses to give it a wide berth. I take a load of washing under the house and open the machine….YELP BARK YELP… I reach down to pick up some clothes and there is a Dorgi wrapped around my feet. (I have no idea what that was but I don’t like it). First load of washing done, coax the Dorgi outside to throw the ball for a while all is going well until someone gets excited and backs into the fence… YELP BARK YELP JUMP… lands at my feet and refuses to play ball anymore. A couple of hours later I am swimming in the pool making a racket, 15 minutes later  YELP BARK YELP… I notice a flash of Dorgi running up the back stairs onto the verandah and sitting int he corner….I start thinking this fence is great he must have  the idea by now…..Well the Witch returns home form a trip in the Country with Jan and is glad she hasn’t had to see the Dorgi get zapped so what does she do stands near the fence and coaxs him into it, funnily enough DORGI GOES YELP BARK JUMP YELP SPRINT away from it. The fence has been live for one week and I don’t think they have contacted each other since…..

Solution to trouble

Filed under: Mack our Dorgi — witchpig @ 8:30 am

= ZAP.

How to fix the jumping Dorgi that is going to cost me thousands in shoulder reconstructions. I know lets add electricity into the equation….The Pig purchases an electric fence and 200 metres of suitably infused zapping cable to go with it. The Pig brings it home and puts the fence in place. The Dorgi is stuck  on the chain thinking this doesn’t look too good, ‘I ain’t seen it before but I am not sure if I like it.’ The Dorgi remains chained as I now need a battery. I acquire a battery and recondition it to hold a bit of a charge…..3 days later it is time to go live and let the Dorgi off the chain.

Trouble

Filed under: Mack our Dorgi — witchpig @ 8:26 am

I am all better and am going to continue in my efforts to escape and raid the food of all the other pets in the near vicinity. Yes I know you put in a gate. Yes I know you then went and perspexed it so I couldn’t shimmy through or climb it. Yes I know you closed off your second set of stairs because I found a way out there. Yes I know that is a 4 metre high retaining wall and I ma about a foot high but if I shimmy the first foot before jumping it won’t hurt and I can get to all the food on offer, then sleep at the front door until you wake up and you Will let me in….

Who spent a few days at the vets.

Filed under: Mack our Dorgi — witchpig @ 8:23 am

The Dorgi got extrmely sick. His temperature was nearly 2 degrees above where it is meant to be. He was unresponsive and generally over heating. He was in pain to touch or move. So off to the vets and a pile of antibiotics and other things. Days later he starts to respond and improve….Diagnosis (no idea) possibly a meningococal style of infection but not to sure. He seemed to respond to the super strength anti biotics and has no side affects. Don’t complain pay the money take him home for him to cause more trouble.
