1. I fought a vending machine in Missouri for a strawberry Fanta and lost (it ate half my change and then i went and got more change and then i told it i wasn't leaving without the fanta and it gave me a strawberry crush. FAIL.)
2. shimizumiki took me out for Japanese food and then all around Kansas City today and then we had noodles and also pancakes (not at the same time). It was so hot today here that we both got heatsick and had to go back to my hotel room and just lie around for a couple hours.
3. Also we went rollerskating. My old skates were too narrow for me anymore, so I gave them to shimizumiki to keep and used her rentals instead. I had a really good time except for the part where suddenly I fell on my face for 100% no reason and now I sort of can't do anything that involves either pushing or pulling with my right arm. Which is, um, about everything. But they played Thriller and we cracked up wishing Senga and Fujigaya were there.
4. (this is the only part any of you care about) i picked up THE SNOWPIGS. They are so tiny and cuter than anything ever. Sanapig is ridiculously oshare, Nokkun is long-suffering that he keeps getting squished out from under the log, and Datte sat on my chest and watched FMA with me. They're all really sweet and like to be held, and every little while or so they all start purring for no reason.
Tomorrow I start the trek home. First stop St. Louis, where i will be taken to the zoo and see capybaras!
