I'm famous...AGAIN!!/Merry Christmas!!!

My School's Christmas display was filmed and is being run 4x a day as a seasonal intermission commercial thingy. I don't watch cable but a student of mine does and they recorded it for me :) I remember when they came to film and NOW I get what the woman was trying to say. This cable station could be nationwide and it could be running off a small antenna which is viewed by 50 old people..I dunno??

I wish they did the Halloween display/Haunted House which is MUCH rarer around here :(

UPDATE: Apparently a lot of people still have cable because there is a traffic issue in front of my School and people are coming in inquiring about the School. That woulda been great a few years ago. Anywayz..

MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone!!!

The 2010 Christmas party in Japan.


The Turkey and Ham were by far the juiciest ever! I just pulled the bones out of the meat while all the meat slid off. Cool as hell!

The Turkey looks like pulled pork or Kalua pig. It was awesome and I'm quite proud of myself :)

The students bring sweets every year and they brought a ton this year and it was great!! Thank you everyone. Hana's grandmothers apple pie was my personal favorite :)

Saki and Wakana are a teachers dream when it comes to being "Party people". They love to team up like a comedy duo and they always make the party funner! Thank's goes to both of them!

Santa rocked the hizzouse too (Sorry I can't post every pic)

The 2010 "Christmas in Japan" post

I will make a post Christmas party post soon. Meanwhile here's a vid of the juciest Turkey i have ever smoked

This is Santa's chair! I will post several updates in this one post starting now but kicking off for real early in the morning when I start smoking the meats :)

This is the girls bracket. There are a lot of girls and I'm sure these ones will play the others are maybe too young or too old? I can put them on supplementary brackets if need be. The Men's brackets are on the right side (out of pic)

The "Party" The Games

"Name that Tune" is coming back and better than ever with more songs Western and Japanese. The buzzer system (pictured below ) will be used to much greater effect. Each 2 person team (1 Japanese 1 Foreigner) will have 10 chances against there opponents to guess the song and Buzz in to answer. This game can get really fun if the song mix is right. If your coming, and wanna be sure your musical tastes are reresented equally please contact and name that/those artists :)

The firefox plugin Youtube video2mp3 has SAVED me!! I don't need torrents or trackers. If it's on Youtube then I can rip a HQ mp3 outta it. LOVE THIS THING!! Wprks great for the Japanese stuff too BTW.

The Wii Sports tournament is a king of the hill winner stays and plays on while the opponents take turns trying to knock off the king and change the game or keep kicking ass. The room is being specialy carpeted for this event which should be a smash!!

**If you have a Wii controler bring it!! I have 2 but up to 4 people can play some games and of course only you will ever touch your own controller :) **

I am NOT fuc_ing around yo!! Bring your "A" game!

Ikura lookin' nice and chunky for Winter! I love this cat!!

Christmas Update from Japan

Got more people coming than last year but the R.S.V.P thing can drive a Mo'Fo cRAZY!!

I will serve Turkey,Ham and all the fixings and I ask the attendees to bring something sweet so we always have lottsa sweets too. But... I gotta keep track and ask for alternatives in-case there's a boom in something particular. The 1st party had A LOT of Jello/Jelly's..?... So since then I ask exactly what is being brought and if theres already enough of that I request another thing. I got 6 varietys of Chiffon cake this year for example so if anyone says there bringing that I gotta shut em' down politely and suggest or accept happily an alternative.

I'm doing a really fun "Name that Tune" game and I need lotsa Japanese songs to make sure my students can enjoy it. I foolishly deleted most of the ones Saki helped me download...a definite WTF moment :(

There will also be a wicked Wii sports tournament too. I think that will absolutely pwn.

Rain..tha f__k? (Messin with the Christmas display!!)

I started decorating my School for Christmas the 2nd year (2005) and it hardly ever rained. According to the internet and my own un-scientific study (how much water is in the mizu) December and January were the driest months of the year in Yanai. Since 2007 though December has been getting wetter and wetter. Natural Earth cycle accelerated by man? or ________? I believe the first one so won't mention anything else. Itis, in Japan, very real I'm pissed to say! I gotta break down and take in the goods like a 1 man Christmas commando more than I like and can do it fast. Like today.....__ck!!

My student got me 2 BUCKETS of candy canes from Costco in Fukuoka. They look small in the pic but these are BIG.
Thank you Yumie!!
