110 MPH.

Randomness ahead. I am not even gonna attempt to make sense. I think it'll be more fun that way. Welcome to Misty's brain....

(1) Message from the American Embassy

Warden Message – Roppongi Security Notice: Drink Spiking

The U.S. Embassy continues to recommend that American citizens avoid frequenting bars and clubs in the Roppongi area of Tokyo due to drink-spiking incidents. (haha...awesome)

The U.S. Embassy continues to receive reliable reports of U.S. citizens being drugged in Roppongi-area bars. Most reports indicate that the victim unknowingly drinks a beverage that has been secretly mixed with a drug that renders the victim unconscious or stuporous for several hours, during which time large charges are fraudulently billed to the victim, sums of money are charged to the victim’s credit card, or the card is stolen. Victims sometimes regain consciousness in the bar or club, while at other times the victim awakens on the street. Assaults on Americans have also been reported in connection with drink-spiking.


Finally, OKINAWA!!!!

She's a keeper


Below is a little blurb from one of my best friends of all time. She is so right on.

"My last adventure will be the one that i take when I transcend this world. Until then, life is one big adventure. it's up to you to decide how adventurous you want it to be. Once you lose the excitement of adventure is when your life should end......the curiousity, the learning, the deepening of understanding is what adventure is about....and isn't that what life is about? when you decide to stop living is when your adventure ends. my adventure is just beginning. i've found that i don't desire to move about and am not restless as when we were in our early 20s, but there's something new awaiting me and i'm looking forward to experiencing this newness. adventure doesn't exist only in foreign lands. it exists in your heart and mind."

Cheers, MNDN (you know who you are!)

Picture this.....

The sun setting in front of my apartment....I love this.

These are snippets of my life over the past two months. Aw, Japan.

From drunken lab parties (yes, that is a breathalizer and IV you see), to endless birthday celebrations, to a Fat Boy Slim Concert, to an art festival involving half-naked dancing men, to shenanigans in toes be tappin'.
