Today, Sunday, December the 28th, was the last working day of this year. I’m gonna be off until Tuesday, January the 6th and away from Tokyo, for a couple of days, during this short holiday.
It’s been a great year, full of everything with sugar on top. Started out with rush and hassle, went through that shitty frustrating period during the hunt for a new location for the studio but then, from June on, it’s been absolutely awesome.
I’ve met a bunch of great people and I’ve had the opportunity to do a bunch of great tattoos. Couldn’t be any more satisfied!
From what people are telling me, the new studio is a success, so I guess I can relax now and stop polishing the floors all day long :)
Those of you who haven’t seen it yet, you’re welcome any time! The schedule is —as usual— a bitch, so I’ll probably make you wait a little until we can meet, but still, do visit sometime. I’ve got sugarless black Coke, tea and beers ;)
And tequila :D
I hope the next year is going to be even better. I mean, I know it’s gonna be better —it always is— but at least I hope there’ll be no reason for the frustration and annoyance I had to go through before the move.
As I write this, I’m getting ready to update, one last time, the photo galleries and then, hopefully, get my hands dirty and do a little bit of work on this weblog too. I’ve been talking about switching back to plain old HTML for about a year, but now I’m really gonna do it. The new template is on my desktop, I’m porting the design of the Japanese version to English and, in the process, trying to get the code up-to-date too. Lots of things changed since the last time I made it —by the way, I just upgraded to 2.7 a couple of days ago— and it’s about time I stop talking and actually do something about it.
But fuck this, right now I’m in no mood for techie talk; all I think about is the huge amount of sleep I finally am going to get, the huge amounts of tequila I hopefully am going to have and the loneliness I probably am going to feel until the 6th, when I’ll finally be able to get back to work.
It’s been a great year, the next one is going to be even better! I hope it’s gonna be as good for all of you too!
Will try to stay within reach these next days —if my laptop doesn’t pull a death-joke on me— so don’t hesitate to send me that “happy new year” mail, OK? ;)
In the meanwhile, all my best wishes to you all and a very happy new year! May it be the bestest year ever ;)
