Kawasaki Halloween parade.

Another boring sunday with nothing to do. Picked up my backpack and my friends camcorder and travelled to Kawasaki to catch a halloween parade. yes, There is actually some place called Kawasaki in Tokyo. I am not too sure about Honda and Toyota, though. It was my first Halloween, and the Japanese seem big on american holidays. I had read about this parade in
metropolis, the magazine in my apartment, so I thought I should go look.
The place was not far from home, around 20-25 minutes from home. The only problem was that I got down at the wrong side of the station and spent almost an hour searching for the parade. I did finally manage to make it just in time for the presentations. Got to see a lot of costumes, some weird, some kinky, not all scary I must say. Hung out there till about 7.00,
and then back home.
Atleast, It was better than sitting at home.

Had a real rough friday night. Was out for a couple of drinks and came back home and went straight to bed. Woke up real late on saturday and had to skip breakfast. I decided i could use a pizza. So I hopped out of bed, picked up my backpack and off I was to look for dominos.
I had seen dominos deliver at office, so i guessed there would be one close by. But could not find it. After almost an hour on foot, I had almost given up when i found the white and blue sign. I didn't even know how far I was from home, But the pizza place was bang outside a metro station ( whose name I cannot remember if i have to go back). I ordered a 10 inch pepperoni, corn & salami pizza for 1200 yen.
Caught the train and came back home to finish all of it at one go. I can't remember the last time I had a whole pizza all to myself. Must be in college when I used to eat at dominos often. They were the only pizza joint then and pretty close to home.
It tasted the same, and was expensive as usual. Come to think of it the filet-o-fish and fries at macdonalds taste the same too. My worry is that there is a lot of junk food going in. But it's good to see some things never change.

Need to find that subway sandwich store close to office soon !!!
