Hi everyone

Just to fill you in on why I've been MIA ... I'm currently in Tokyo. At pretty much the same time that I decided that since Bilbao is looking less and less likely, I might as well go to QWANcon, I got packed off here for a fortnight with two days' notice. It was all kind of frantic and ever since I got here I've either been working 10-15 hour days or making nice with our team in the Tokyo office and I just haven't had any real downtime at all. And to make it worse, I fly home tomorrow, but I won't even be home for a week before I fly out again - for a long weekend in NY which is absolutely insane, but there you go.

Anyway, was in an internal meeting today which was pretty much all in Japanese and this is the result. I've been putting together way to many survey questionnaires, so this drabble is called, "Yes/No/NA".

Hope it gives you a smile.

“So do you want to come or not?” Justin was doing his best to keep his frustration with Brian’s not entirely unexpected vacillation out of his voice.

Brian, predicably, shrugged.

“Brian, do you want to come out to dinner with Daphne and me? It’s a simple “yes/ no” question.”

“Maybe I want more choices.”

“Like what? None of the above? Not applicable?”

"What about Yes … with conditions.”

Justin stifled a grin. Looked like his blow-job account was about to go into the red again.

It was a tough job being Brian Kinney’s favorite cock-sucker, but someone had to do it.

Lol! Have a great time in NYC. I'm incredibly envious. Will prob be in Melbourne either mid Sept or early October. Daughter is coming back to Melbourne to stay with her brother. She's currently in Lisbon having a great time. Will be in touch soon.

so she isn't in London anymore? But still touring Europe, it seems :)

Her visa ran out in April. She was deported back to Berlin after trying to get back into London. So much drama. She met a gorgeous Italian boy on the way to Cinque Terre. Four hot Chilean skateboarders were her neighbours in Barcelona. She loved Spain. And she's currently staying with two gay boys in Lisbon.

Sorry Wren to intrude.

Deported to Berlin? WTF? *shakes head* Sometimes you really wonder about things. British politics? Right now not my favourite subject indeed.

Indeed. But you should try Aussie politics. Blah!

Right now we're in the run up to the election and it looks like our ultra conservative opposition party are likely to be elected. Disgusting.

Sounds like she's having a blast. Will be hard to come back from all that to Melbourne's gloomy weather and the damned election.

I think she just misses the election. And the weather has been soooo hot where she is. I could be in Melbourne on the weekend. What are you doing on Friday night besides recovering from the week? Hubby has a function to go to.

Thanks, J. Sorry I missed your birthday. I've just been kind of overwhelmed with one thing and another. Hope we'll be able to catch up in Melb.

That's OK. You're forgiven. See above reply.

ROFLMAO! Very fitting :)
Take care of yourself, will you!

Thanks, Connor. I plan to. I'm home and having a quiet weekend before three hectic days at work and then flying out on Thursday. It's all a little surreal to be honest. But kind of fun.

Wow, two days notice? That's insane. Sorry that you're working so much that you're not able to get out and enjoy it.

Yeah, it was fairly full on. The team from the Tokyo office did take me to do some sight-seeing on Saturday though. That was nice. Funnily enough (and doesn't this often happen) the things we wound up doing and the places we went, they'd never been there either, so we all played tourist together.

Love the drabble and I'm VERY impressed with your jet-setting schedule! I wish I could get into NYC to visit with you but things are crazy these next couple of weeks for me with a new job starting and the Jewish New Year around the corner.

Thanks, C. Hope the new job goes well.

And Happy New Year! :)

Cute drabble!
I'm sorry you won't make it to Bilbao.

Thanks, honey.

I have a ticket and I keep hoping but there are a few things in my own life that will be going on around that time and I'm just not convinced I'm going to be able to get away. Plus I haven't been able to get any of the meet and greets I wanted and it's a long way to go to watch them from a distance.

But who knows?

Wow! You've been very busy. Take care so you don't get too worn out. *hugs*

Justin has such a tough time being Brian's favorite! Lucky guy. ;)

Yeah, I was feeling kind of exhausted when I got back but I've had a quiet weekend and I'm unpacked and just about packed again, so I guess it will be okay.

As for Justin ... so tough, just so tough. LOL

Adorable. My daughter was leaving Louisiana to go home to Tokyo about the same time you are coming back.

From: [identity profile] wren-kt7oz.livejournal.com
That's ironic. I love Tokyo, but the work schedule was just brutal.

I didn't even get to eat out at a decent sushi restaurant this time.

OMG, this is too funny. I was just given a project to put together a survey/questionnaire but nothing as interesting as this. I love when you come up with drabbles and fics while you are on teleconferences and meetings. You are the best multitasker.

Thanks, Dee Dee. I have to keep the brain busy especially when I'm that tired. Glad you enjoyed the result.

(My questionnaire aren't usually that interesting either LOL.)

Tokyo, Wow! Very interesting job you have. Adorable drabble. Hugs! Annie

Thanks, Annie.

My job has its moments, but mainly it's pretty routine. Glad you liked the drabble, though.

What a cute little drabble :)

YAY about QWANcon! See you there then! You taking part in the convention part of it too or just the show? When are you flying to NYC? I'm going to be there from 30th Aug. You planning to see Harbor as well while you are in town? A bunch of us are going on the Friday night. I just hope I'll be able to stay awake after my flight :) The things we do for him :P

It will be so nice seeing you again!!!


Date: 25/8/13 05:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] wren-kt7oz.livejournal.com
Thanks, Pia.

Actually, I have a ticket for Harbor on Friday night as well. Looks like I'll be among friends.

I'm flying in on Thursday ... I guess that's the 29th. So hopefully by Friday night I'll be able to stay awake. LOL

Looking forward to seeing you. I missed you in June.

Thanks, Chris. I have to admit it has been mildly crazy. But there you go.

I kind of exaggerated the two days' warning. They first started talking about it on Monday, but it wasn't till Thursday that it was actually confirmed and I could book my ticket.

Thanks, honey.

I haven't definitely closed the door on Bilbao yet, but ... we'll see.

But NY was a blast!

*g* Loved the drabble, Wren! Justin's has such a difficult job! Wonder if he gets paid overtime? LOL!

Your schedule is super crazy, my dear! So you were in Japan the same time Gale was there...Hmm

Hope you enjoyed Qwan!

Date: 7/9/13 07:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] wren-kt7oz.livejournal.com
Thank you.

Sadly, didn't run into Gale in Tokyo. LOL

Had a great time at QWAN. And, of course, got to see Randy in Harbor.

And to see Orlando Bloom in Romeo and Juliet. Really ... can't be all bad.
