    Yeah. It's not easy mounting a Tahoe, but I hear with a little lubricant and some patience...

    Shut the hell up. Please.
    I'm a nice ewok, really, but I don't want these last few weeks to go by any faster than they already are.
    Stop encouraging time to go faster. You'll get your chance in Japan. Let me enjoy the last of mine.

    Agreed. <3

    I'm actually kinda sad that you're leaving, Wicket. It would have been wonderful to meet you. Enjoy the rest of your time!

    Thanks. It does feel weird to be leaving without meeting any of you newbies face to face, especially since I had such a good time as a TOA last year.

    But I get to meet my successor and help her set up her bank account, alien registration card, mobile phone etc. She seems really nice!

    I we are all really excited about heading to the US but I guess you would feel pretty sad about leaving :?

    What day do you leave Wicket? Zephy and I get to Kobe on the 30th. Maybe there should be a little meet-up of the current, new, and leaving JETs in the area

    Oh! I hadn't thought about how we might be overlapping by a few days!

    I'm definitely a big girl - in more ways than one, so please continue your countdown. It's actually pretty great that you are all so excited. I can't believe it's 14 years since I came on JET the first time and I still remember what it felt like.

    As to overlap - I don't leave until August 6th, so something could definitely be arranged. And should be!

    Although I may not be doing too much drinking, depending on some results I'm expecting from my quack.

    Still up for a night out though!
