A JET Chistmas
While there are a lucky few who get to have a real deal X-mas back home, most of us JETS are either staying in Japan or travelling around this side of the world to spend it. This means that we had to have one last horrah before everyone went thier own ways and what better way to do it then a party (surprise surprise!)? A few weeks back, there was a real X-mas party--formal attire and all--in Yamaguchi city. Almost 2 hours of all you can drink (nomihodai) can bring out the Christmas cheer in just about anybody! The infamous Tom Smith...uh hmm, shall I say "Dance Dance evolution"... loosened up that tie and brought enough gyrating holiday spirit to some very lucky female JETS to hold them through the end of the year. Of course, we had to have fun games like pass the mikan (Japanese oranges) around and tie the piece of yarn through each other's clothes. Thanks to the girls of AJET who are party planning gurus. After the party, Selena, Becky H., Miho, her husband and I found our ways back inTokuyama for some good ol' dancing at Suzie Wongs. Now that the owner and I are on a first name basis (I think I've officially OD-ed on that place), he made sure to play some salsa as we stumbled our way out to a ramen booth stand--one of the best ways to end a night out.
