Getting old

Note to self: 1000 yen for as many beers as you can drink before 9pm is NOT a good idea. It is also not a competition to get your money's worth. *Sigh*. Further, when deciding, before going out that AT 9pm you'll call it a night, it's a good idea to remember that decision and not continue drinking. Finally, it's a good idea to remember that beer is pretty much guaranteed to give me a headache.

Suffice it to say, I had a lot of fun last night. And by about 7pm this evening the hangover had worn off. Today was spent watching dvd's, drinking a LOT of water and peeing a lot. The peeing thing was particularly annoying as I didn't want to be moving so much. Oh well. I've decided, again, to never drink again. Until I forget the decision anyway.

Japanese television is very different from British television. J television just doesn't reach the same level of trashiness. Tackyness, yes. Trashiness, no. A friend has lent me a dvd with the first three episodes of the last series (whenever that was on) of 'X Factor'. This is an 'American Idol' kind of deal, but open to 16-24 year olds, 25 pluses and groups. It's a very good way to spend a hangover. I've not laughed so hard at anything on television for a long time. Amazing how deluded some people can be about their talents. Brilliant stuff!
