It's a major award! I won it!

I'm heading back to Japan with my wife later this fall! First time since probably 2000 that I've gone twice in one year (and that was for work). I can't really afford to go to Japan twice in a year, but I don't have to - I won a contest. Facebook's good for something!

No business class this time, but that's okay - it's free! In fact, this will be the second of at least three free flights we're taking to Japan. Last time we flew business class on miles. This time, I won our tickets. Next time, we'll have enough miles to hopefully fly first class! I almost hate to say it (almost), but I'm slowly becoming George Clooney in "Up in the Air":

I don't spend a nickel, if I can help it, if it doesn't somehow profit my mileage account. Though I'm not building a collection - for me, the destination's the goal.

This is great movie, by the way - I highly recommend it. It's impossible not to fall in love with Anna Kendrick if you watch this. But everybody's good in it.

Anyway, we don't have a lot of firm plans for Japan yet, but you can sleep well tonight knowing that a bunch of new travel posts are coming. We're going to keep trying for the Twilight Express, there's another Scandal concert happening while we're there, I'm gonna request AKB48 tickets again, we'll definitely be hitting the ramen museum this time around, and I'm not sure what else yet. It's also possible that none of those things (except the ramen museum) might actually work out - everything's hard to get tickets for. But we always manage to find fun things to do.

I'll talk more about it later!

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
