Whateva. The wonderful thing about being part of the Marine Corps family? Going to visit friends all over the world. When my friend moved, I told her that was DEFINITELY going to come and visit, because who wouldn't want to go visit a friend whose casa es mi casa all the way in Japan? (Gimme a break. I speak Spanish, y'all. I don't know how to say "my house is your house" in Japanese)
COMPLETELY UNRELATED SIDENOTE: Have I ever mentioned The Brat's boner for ALL THINGS JAPANESE? Because she's got one. A big huge one. She listens to J-pop (and K-pop) watches anime in japanese. She decided in middle school that she wanted to learn japanese. EVEN when it involved taking a class at 7AM. And considering that she’d rather sleep until noon than eat, that's dedication. And? She’s REALLY good. And I'm not just saying that because I'm her mom and she's better than your kid at EVERYTHING. She's pretty bad ass.

OMG, I'm going to Disneyland!!!
*I haven't even been to Disneyland in California in YEARS, but OMG, there is no way I'm not going to Disneyland in another fucking country. Also? Now that I remembered that there are Disneylands all over the world, I'm adding Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong to my list. BOO-YAH!!
** And, yes. I asked The Man did he want to go. His response: I've already been to Okinawa and I never want to go back. Have fun. Take pictures.
