In January I'll be going with four friends to Tokyo. The trip organizer is Metro. Metro is an awesome person to have on a trip because he has so much energy and is constantly joyful. Seriously, I went on a road trip with him a couple years ago and he was the most consistently happy and easygoing person I've ever traveled with. Metro can speak Japanese, which is a plus. He learned the language so that he could understand Japanese video games. Most people think that's crazy, but I learned Swedish because I think Swedish guys are hot, so I don't judge him. Metro also has more blog names than anyone I know. I call him Metro, his girlfriend Juju refers to him as Link. And on his own blog, a video game review blog, Metro is known as pickypants.
GCB, who has already been traveling the world for months, will be there. GCB is famous in our circle of friends for primarily one thing: He takes his clothes off at parties. Always. GCB gets invited to lots of parties.
Superman will be there too. One of the funniest guys I know, hands down. He was hilarious to watch when he performed the play I wrote last year.
Devo is going on the trip and will provide much-needed balance. Never without a smile, Devo is all about making sure everyone is having a good time and, especially in my case, he makes sure everyone is getting the enormous amount of attention required to make me - I mean us - happy.
Yesterday, we e-mailed each other about getting together this Saturday to talk about the trip.
Hey, Japan Party People. We're meeting at 7pm to drink and plan. It will be glorious. Come early for hot videogame action.
Hot. Videogame. Action. What am I getting myself into?
You can't wait 4 days for me to get back into town, you fuckers?
Bro, we need to meet. I am not planning anything. The name of the game is intuative enjoyment.
Can we change the name of the game to Intuitive Enjoyment?
Is Intuitive Enjoyment anything like "Super Smash Brothers"? Or is it more of a "Root Beer Tapper" sort of thing? Should I bring my multi-sided dice?
Superman, I will show you how to play Intuitive Enjoyment once we get to Tokyo.
It's getting gay in here.
Wow, Tokyo ain't gonna know what sodomized it!
Can we get t-shirts made? "I Sodomized Tokyo"
Oh, they sell those pre-made.
So, those are the guys I'll be with in Japan. This trip is gonna be awesome.
