Today, my sister and I ditched skiing to spend the daily frolicking in the snow… you know, building snowmen and what not.  Let me just say… we kick ass at snowman building!


Isn’t that the most awesome snowman you have ever seen?  He even has a cute little hat!  I just want to take him home and install him in my yard… too bad he would melt very rapidly.

Too bad, as well, that it isn’t our snowman.

P1000597THIS is our snow(wo)man, who I have dubbed Queen Pinhead, for the extreme difference in the size of her head and body.  She was a nurse in the war whose arms got sadly chopped off by an overenthusiastic surgeon, hence the arm stumps that you may or may not be able to see. She also has a scarf made out of snow, because my sister and I are arty and clever like that. (And yes, our snowwoman has a melodramatic backstory.  That’s totally normal.)

Right after I took this photograph, my sister kicked off her head.  There is a photo of me holding said head Hamlet style, but it’s on my sister’s camera… and it really doesn’t look like a head at that point.  I look like I am mourning a ball of snow, and it makes no sense.

I also got hit by several snowballs thrown by Japanese in the process of making this snowman.  My sister got hit with none because my fat ass was protecting her.  I took them for the team, damn it!  I think they were targetting the blonde because I was easy to spot.

Today is our last day at the snow, so we are celebrating it by getting well and truly hammered (well… as hammered as one can get off half a bottle of hundred proof Japanese vodka… so well and truly tipsy?), then going to a karaoke bar and making fools of ourselves. 

More random photos!

P1000594THIS is why I don’t do beanies.  Ever.

P1000599Hot Chocolate in a CAN.  Everything in Japan comes out of a vending machine, I swear! 

P1000601   Me trying to look like a mushroom out of Mario with my sister.  By the time I remembered my sunnies, it wasn’t half as glary.  Figures!  There is also a stupid snowflake RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY NOSE.

/hugs to all!
