Zocko's Journal

All about Zocko, the crazy pirate who *will* take over the world someday!

Life often revolves around my latest art project whether that be sketching, making movies, or writing novels. Friends are the most important thing in my life (including Jesus) but a close second would be trying to take over the world. My flip side is crazy and outgoing so beware if you see me wearing pink hair.

Tadaima!

Hey everyone!

It's good to be back in Canada although I already miss the friends I left in Japan. Arriving in Seattle was an interesting e
xperience (as always) because Vincent's house burnt down and for once he wasn't joking. This led to Vincent forgetting about my arrival (thanks a lot!) and me having to find his mother's business number in the phone book. Luckily I only had to stay at Seattle's Youth Hostel for one night. It was nice there by the way ... and I found this wonderful icecream shop near Pike Place. (1lt = $3.88)



After Vince picked me up he bought Coldstone icecream,
hoping to appease my wrath, and it worked. Everything is big in Seattle: the people, the icecream, even the bathroom key! I took some pictures for Chinopan because three dollars in Japan buys you about a spoonful of icecream. It's ridiculous and one of the few things I don't miss. The second is being able to stretch my arms outward and not touch about ten different walls.





That's icecream Cathy (I love her) and the icecream key. Anyway good times, busy times. I'll start updating my Japan journal backlog A.S.AP!

Hey Michelle!
Welcome back! I missed you! I'm glad you had so much fun! I wish I could have gone with you! Hmm lotsa exclamation marks.. makes for good comments! Your blog dealie is pretty sweet by the way, seeing as I am supposed to be commenting on it right? I like your pictures.. All that ice cream makes me hungry, because apparently you need to be starving in order to truly enjoy ice cream! Yes yes, I suppose I shall have to content myself with frozen fuzzy peaches. *sigh* (did that make sense?) Oh deary me! I seem to have gotten side tracked! as per usual.. Right! So! Awesome bloggie-ma-dealie! Post some more pictures! Love ya!

I am SO offended I'm not the first poster of comments tch! Actually, I wasn't even going to comment but then some freaking comment nazi was like AYAYAYWYAYAYAYA! Or something. You get the idea. Soooooo Japan looks awesome. I miss my friends from there and hate you for reminding me. Your friends are frickin adorable! That Tatsuya guy is hilarious from what you tell me and what I've seen. I want friends like that to mock! I don't see enough of my mockable friends plus how long can you harp on the same thing! Make new mistakes you fools! Yeah... It's late and I'm going to see this later and be like... man I sound like a complete ass! Where's the funny? The drama? The triple burns! Alas you'll have to be contended with this halfassed attempt at... something. Spelling mistakes are your fault shame on Amanda! *rambles some more* I think that's enough,
Later Days

OOOOooooo! Cold Stone Creamery rocks with their dairy coolness! Man, I miss that stuff! I love the pic of you and Icecream Cathy...you must be the luckiest girl alive...you got to cross over the sacred boundary and go behind the counter! ...yea, I'm jealous :)

Icecream Cathy *was* totally awesome! She even promised free icecream if I visited her 5 times in a row. Unfortunately I'm a tart and couldn't find that particular Coldstone again amongst the other ten thousand that are presently located in Seattle. Arghgahsga! Someday I shall return ...!

Crossing of boundaries is permitted when you are *the* icecream queen ~_^

Huzzah! I am posting my first comment on your awesome internet blog/scrapbook place!
Firstly, I am concerned about Mr. Vince. I've noticed how unconcerned you are about the whole "house burning down" thing and am thus assured that it's no big deal, but a burnt down house is concerning. How is he? What happened?
Next, ICE CREAM!!!!!!! I must have ice cream!
Finally, I actually got used to the ridiculous closed spaces of Asia, but maybe that's because where I was staying in Cambodia had ridiculously large rooms to counteract the clausterphobia. Actually, I had a hard time coming home to where houses were small and shopping stores and resteraunts were large.
Now I must go, it's dinner time and I think Mootti's been calling for a while...

...Tatsuya's hair is simply Amazing! With a capital A! It's almost gravitationally impossible! One of the great mysteries of the World!

Love the pictures, Michelle, missed you while you were gooone! Looks to me like you had a killer time and spent a lot of it with amazing / beautiful people (with Amazing hair, nonetheless!) You know, these pictures kind of discourage people from going to Japan for fear of looking less beautiful in comparison. I certainly feel less inclined (my hair would look limp and dead in comparison to Tatsuya's!)

So I'll see you soon... you should really put up some more pictures! I really enjoyed looking!

Ok, now I'm really done... Promise.

Yo girrrl what up? Dont tell me you're still stuck behind that ice cream counter! Dangerous buisness ice cream...So how's Canadia?(^-<)have you heard from any of the J-crew?

Japan, Korea, china...so much drama. I guess it basically all goes back to Japan's no so distant imperial past, when they invaded and occupied China and Annexed Korea...
