the JET farewell party
This was the official last hoorah for the 'Guch JETS of 2005-2006. Sure, half of us will stay in Japan, but the other half are leaving the cozy bubble that is the JET program. To commerate it all, we had a farewell party. We did the usual: all you can eat (the Italian restaurant we went to was DELISH), all you can drink, karaoke, and a lot more.
There were the ZenZen Awards which basically created some categories for a few lucky JETS to win like "Most Turning Japanese," "Last Person Standing at the End of the Night," etc.
There were the Japanese trains that we invaded by playing foot limbo.
There was Tom Smith and his amazing flexibility when he dances.*
There was saying goodbye to my friends. :(
*Tom Smith, the man, the myth, the legend. Just give him a few beers and he'll be all over the dancefloor in seconds. He's notorious for picking up girls, knocking chairs over with their legs and making them show a little more then they want to when he flings them in the air. (^_-) What can I say? Consider it my farewell omiyage (gift) to you.
