Happy New Year, everyone! ^_^ I hope everyone had as lovely a day as I did. I love New Year, I get to see a~ll my family! Mum, Dad, sister, brother-in-law, niece, grandmas, grandads, several uncles and aunts... You get the idea! You know how family usually say "Haven't you grown?" every time they see you? No-one's said that to me for a few years now. -_- I miss that.
My gran insisted we all go to Sumiyoshi Taisha (she's been saying "This could be my last New Year..." for as long as I can remember), so of course a loooooot of my day was spent in a big crowd waiting to go to the shrine, but it was fun because we played games! Though we had to stop playing the game Kokubun-sensei was talking about a while ago, where you say a sentence and the next person has to say something starting with the last letter, when my uncle got in trouble for some of his contributions. I'm not very good at that game anyway... ^^' But there's only so much I-Spy you can play when you're only moving a couple of metres every fifteen minutes.
There are a lot of advantages to having such a big family. Who wants to help me spend my New Year's money? :D
[OOC: Yay first entry! :D Happy New Year, everyone~! BTW, because I'm a show-off, Sumiyoshi Taisha is a big shrine in Osaka. I haven't actually been, but I'm basing my assumption on my queueing experience today at Meiji Jingu... XD]
