SO! Today was a holiday for the entire country. Except for me. Because my job is amazing except for the parts when THE BOSS ASKS US TO COME IN ON NATIONAL HOLIDAYS. Seriously >_> I understand that the main reason he asked us to come in is because there's a project we're trying to get done by the end of the month, so he needs us in whenever we possibly can spare a moment, but still ;_;
This also meant I had to play sly-like in order to get an hour off to run to Shibuya and
stalk Gaku. As many of you know, the Husband made some hats. They're nothing really special, and I actually have one just like them already that has the Gain logo (some of you may also recall this
drabble in which Nagayan got "We're Fucking" stitched onto the hats ^___^)
But I'm me, and as part of my wifely duties, I have to buy all Gaku's crap. Plus he was gonna be there >_> soooo I DRAGGED myself out of work to go to Gain and make him think his crap's worth $50 :P
I was kinda worried that there might be a line (HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA) so I made sure to get there early, and sat around outside of Gain (which wasn't open yet) around 11:20, when the hat was supposed to go on sale at 12, and was the only one for a while. About 15 minutes later, another girl showed up, and another one after her 10 or so minutes later. By 10-til-12, there were five of us waiting altogether, which was pretty good since there were only 9 hats XD
Gaku showed up a little after Tenchou and headed inside while we waited, and a little after 12 Tenchou and Gaku came back down to tell everyone they could come inside now. Gaku kind of led everyone up the stairs, and since I was the first one there, I kinda got to be at the head of the line and
stare at Gaku's ass as we went up the stairs
go up behind Gaku. As we're walking up, he's engaging us all in small talk, and he sees the shirt I'm wearing (a pink 3/4 sleeve with GAIN written on it in big letters...seeing as it came from Gain :P) and says, "I've got a shirt just like that!
I love it, I wear it aaallll the time :DDDDD" (Me: "...I know, I saw 8D")
Let me stop to take a moment here to let you all know how much of an awesome loser Gaku is ♥ He was wearing an Anten
shirt (the triple collab with Gain and Blossam) and had a strange dark bar going diagonal across his chest, looking like he'd spilled something. When one of the other girls pointed it out, asking what it was, he flailed about, embarrassed. "...It's sweat, from wearing my bag..."
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. OH GAKU. OOOHHHH GAKU. I really wanted to just, die laughing there. But I maintained some semblance of tact XD;;;
When we all
assembled inside Gain, Tenchou asked us to gather round, because there was a little problem. As we could see, Gaku was wearing a black cap like the ones going on sale. There were 9 caps total: 2 red, 2 blue, 2 orange, 2 yellow, and (originally 2) 1 black. That meant one person could buy the black cap that "matched" Gaku's.
Understanding that many would probably want the black one to match Gaku's, they had decided to draw lots. Two of the girls admitted they were just there to see Tenchou (hahaha XDDDD), one of the others withdrew, and so it was down to just another girl and me :P
Tenchou handed Gaku two playing cards (from this naked-guy deck
[imageshack seems to be down at the moment though :/], which Tenchou admitted to having provided XDDDD), one of which had "atari" ("winner") written on it, and had us pick.
Well, with a 50/50 chance, it was kind of hit or miss, eh? I WON XD The Hat, in all its glory:
After making my purchase I explained that I'd LOVE to stay and chat, but unfortunately I had to return to work. Insert much Gaku spazzing about "wtf work on a holiday and WTF WORK? LIKE IN TOKYO? OMG MINAMI AOYAMA? THAT'S. LIKE. CLOSE. WOW."
*digs hooks into the guy some more* >D
