eating is important. at 2pm, i was about to fall over.

the sun poured down and I didn't know which way was up. Since arriving, whenever it was, I've had 3/4 of a bowl of noodle soup, 8 pieces of sushi, a tomato curry puff, a sandwich and now, finally, 6 more pieces of veggie sushi---long and short..about the amount id eat in a typical NY day spread out over the time since USA Tuesday late night. yeah.

there's been so much to do and so much craziness that food has not been a priority. but it finally got me today. after standing for over 4 hours at Bic Camera in order to get a keitai (cell phone) and mobile internet (thus this journal entry and YES i will start broadcasting soon...!!) I realized i was starving. after walking around in the sun for 4 minutes afterward, around 2pm, i was about to fall over.

i stepped into a Beckers and noshed a sandwich and water and just sat there until I could think reasonably. I needed to go shopping for clothing. It's been officially communicated to me that my bags are LOST. not just left in SFO, but completely lost by United Airlines. No clothing. No awesome green bag that I scored from work. No important mesh bag for mobile casting. No special going away present from Jo. No clothing, no shoes, no Zazzle items for Yuta. No cat ears- all of them gone with the luggage. I've really been hit hard. And I can only hope that someday the bags will turn up--that Jojo in US can get UA to find them. But, i think....hmmm. I was supposed to transfer from a UA to an ANA flight...I was rescheduled on United after my Boise/SFO flight was delayed. But, the bags were somehow left. I think they somehow went with ANA, but its impossible to track because UA took my bag tags and only gave me the tracking # that they were SUPPOSED to have with UA. Yes, Im fucked. completely. I have travel insurance and maybe in 1-2 months the airline might come through and cover its ass with some money my way (likely not), but I've not only lost a couple thousand dollars of possessions, I've lost part of my life that cannot be replaced. anyway, by the time insurance comes through, it will be weeks from now, so I must go shopping...and this brings me back to where i was at Beckers...

I thought maybe, after sitting in the AC getting nourished and hydrated, that I might head to Zara aand/or SPPS (as advised by the nice gals at Bic Camera) but I just couldnt do it. I was too dead from not eating and all the stress. I came back home, noted my roommie had spent her day cleaning the kitchen, (I felt that I should help, but Im never going to cook here, AND I washed her air filter yesterday...)tossed my new purchases on the floor, and passed out cold. I felt guilty about not turning on the webcast, updating, setting up twitter, and all of that...but at that point, it was better to rest.

Im up now, and entering this long journal account of the day before I start webcasting so you dont have to watch me do it. Enjoy it now, because I will likely be on the computer a lot with all the requirements of Nekomimi Lisa.

I will be mobile casting ASAP after I find a new bag in which to carry an operating computer. As I mentioned, the mesh one is sitting somewhere where lost luggage and lost socks meet. I need something that will allow the lappy to cool itself. It runs super hot as it is.

sorry to hear about your luggage, that totally sucks. Hopefully, it'll eventually make it out to you. Take care of yourself. I know that's easier said than done when your body is exhausted and your mind is thinking about the millions of things you want to accomplish.

Lisa: I can totally relate to you with my Switzerland adventure the first time I travelled there!
During my very first time with my ex in Switzerland (1996) we went shopping (as family members wanted me to buy watches, earrings, gold bracelets and so forth) in Zurich as they thought I would get a bargain there. Well I set aside one day to do all that stuff as I knew they would be asking. So, I spent close to $20,000 (which included other things as well as the jewelry that I purchased..sculpture,etc.). The day I was to leave on SwissAir to come back to American, I checked it all in of course and packed it real securely along with my new camera equipment that I bought and stuff where it could not be found as it was all too bulky to take on the plane. Well, when I got off I waited and waited to get my 3 bags..I already had two carryons, but they were no where to be found. I went to security who told me to go to Lost & Found..I went there and they told me to file a report and someone would get back to me within 24-48 hours. Someone did and said they would be investigating this. I was so upset. I had really bought some nice pieces and I was really pissed off! Yes, I had travel insurance, so it helped in the end, but honestly, I lost all that beautiful stuff plus my new camera and equipment...the bags were never found--clothes, jewels,camera stuff, sculptures--all gone!!! A total nightmare. What a way to remember my first trip to Switzerland huh!!! Since then I have been there I and my mate at the time purchased an apartment there and so I lived there for a bit...but now that's ben sold, but I learned from this experience!!!! I don't buy a lot anymore and I travel light. I am so sorry about your baggage...look at this way, shopping although an expense will be a new experience there, but maybe the bags will show up and be sent to you...think POSITIVE GIRL!!!!
