Save your work, don’t jave it.
Welcome to Japan
The Trains pulled out of the station to go to the final concert for The fat lady but she already has sung and she’s just putting the final shovel of dirt on this cooked goose and I’m seeing how many more nails I can put in this coffen of Idioms for things being over.
NOVA has filed for a type of bankrupcy under the Chapter 11 business reconstruction act.
Basically it means they have no money, but have no assets with which to pay back all their debitors so they apply to the government to help them get back on their feet.
Right now there are court preceedings to asses their assets, their previous profits and seeing where the compnay is at at this point, and if the government thinks if the compnay keeps running will they get MORE in debt then they’ll liquidate everything they have to pay back as much as they can and sell off the company, or can they can loan them a bunch of money pull their asses out of this downward spiral.
If they think it would be better for them to survive they would create a 5 to 10 year payment plan for the company to downsize and pay back their debtors by continuing to run. It’s possible for them to do really since they do still have students, but their name has been sullied something fierce and they’d REALLY have to change everything.
In either case as of Yesterday morning all NOVA’s in Japan were shutdown with no warning, which a bit of a pissant because people had personal effects at the office. FORTUNATELY my staff being the angels that they are told NOVA to fuck themselves when they were told to hand in the building keys (The J-staff were busy getting their asses to HelloWork) and can now let me in to get my work shoes and the candy I had sitting in the back.
I won’t STEAL anything (Albit I’m REALLLLLLLYYYYY tempted) ((and since Eri’s there I can’t… damnit))
But I need to make some Photocopies of the proofs of work and I’m going to write a message for the students. Because even if NOVA does start operations again, I still may never see the inside of Takenotsuka again, but if it doesn’t I’ll definitely never see the inside of ANY NOVA again, unless I bust open some doors….
In either case I’m off to work for what seems to be the last time.
Toppatsu is what it’s called when a Teacher calls in sick to work and misses a day. Since I had not been paid for quite some time I figured I deserved a day off, especially since I’m nice and I didn’t Toppatsu on Saturday (Like I wanted to because the j-staff asked me very kindly not to) So instead I did it today.
I woke up at 8am and went to the bank, transphered 1700$CND through the bank (Bank to bank transpher) and then I transphered 200,000¥ to a Loyds accont which will transpher the money to my Canadian account as well. I’m going to see which one is faster basically, and better since both were quite a pain in the ass to do. However apparently I can do the Loyds one online once I set myself up with Online banking which I’m thinking I’ll do that tomorow.
Anyway, after that I came home, got ready with Bri and then went off to Tokyo Dome.
It was great, at 4pm you can get a “Night Rider” ticket for 3000¥ which is 4 hours worth of all the rides you want. Which considering average each ride is about 600¥ (600 is the cheapest most expensive is 1000¥) if you ride everything just once you’ve more then gotten your monies worth. So we rode everything there, even the merry go round.
We got there at about 3.00 so at first we wandered and then hit the arcade for a bit then got the tickets. Hit the Roller Coster (my second time on one ever) I went on that once, nearly died with hyperventilating and hysterical laughing at the end. The ride staff girl was all “Daijoubu desu ka?” and I could only giggle and wave at her.
I was shaking for at least 10 min after.
So after that the rest of the gang (Lion, Bri, Cris and TC)
((TC is a bit of a story. On the Train I was staring at her because she looked familiar, I was like “Do I know you from somewhere” she’s asian so she thought I was being racist in a “you all look alike” kind of way but I kept grilling her.
"What branch do you work at?" No where near me "Where are you from" Canada, which makes me go hmm "Where in Canada?" Alberta.. Jee my province "Where in Alberta" A city where I live close to "What university??" At this point she’s giving me a creepy stalker look because I’m getting weirded out as her answers match my answers to the same questions. Turns out we have met before, She’s a friend of someone I worked with at an Anime Convention a few years back. We met when she showed up to get her friend. 2 years later, we meet on a train in a different country. WEIRD))
They all went again while I sat at the bottom of the stairs and shook (I told them to go I wanted a min alone anyway) then we went and rode the Merry go round and then a water ride (Bri and TC got pretty wet, I used TC as a sheild) and then a different roller coster which I cracked my head on pretty hard because it was less up and down and more jolt and spin.
We then went on Geopolis which was kind of cool, then into a haunted house which was pretty lame, then another haunted house which was a little better, then something called Hyper Illusion which was a big screan and a seat that moved which was SUPER lame.
Last we went to “13 Doors”
BEST THING EVER!!
Basically you get a key and it opens different doors in this haunted room place. it’s SO SCARY, it’s not even scary everything jumping out at you it’s creepy there’s a little girl standing behind you and then she’s in front of you giggling just as you turn to see her mother fall down some stairs. IT’S SUPER SCARY. The best part is at the end, we all nearly died with fright at the last one I could hardly make it to the door with the key I was scared shitless.
I wanna go again!!
I wish I could have gone there with Soda, I would have loved to see him in that haunted house, that and then we would have had an even number of people for the rides because often someone had to ride alone.
Best day ever!
