Otaru – Lemon Sours & Games

Things are getting a little crazy in Burpyfreshia. I quit my job, and took another job doing social media work. Basically, I get paid to use Twitter and Facebook.

It’s a living hell. I mean. I like Twitter and Facebook. I just don’t necessarily like everyone else on Twitter and Facebook. They sometimes send me penises. And not good penises either.

But, since the new job doesn’t start until like the 18th, I’m like all fuck it, Jeju Air got some 200 bone tickets to Tokyo, so lemme get some of them Otaru Lemon Sours.

Some back story. Adam Bolton, of at various points CNet, Polygon, a bunch of places, and amazing beard fame, is on Facebook like every week about them Lemon Sours they got at Otaru. Otaru is a meet up for game industry people, and it has been for a few years I think. People from the big guys, as well as mid range companies all seem to pop in from time to time.

Also, Adam is amazing. Done back story.

Adam is very happy to be in this situation.This is the precise moment of when I became intolerable.

I’m sure they got other drinks there, but honestly, four of those bad boys and I was off the wall. They are fantastic. So refreshing. So inebriating. Also, you get an actual half lemon and a squeezer to do it up proper.

You know Japan knows how to do it up proper.

But onto important things, basically me. I think I was charming while I was there? Though honestly, around last train, being laughed at is as just as satisfying as being laughed with. I told a few stories, I listened to a lot of stories. I talked about my needs from male adult products in proper context.

Basically, it was a good night of hanging out. So many cool people, which I really want to write about here, but then I’m that guy who goes and name drops all the famous people he met all over the place. Adam’s not famous (yet*) so I can put his name here for the next year or so, but everyone else will have to remain a mystery.

(Just check Twitter instead from the night of September 7th! I am that guy! I AM TOTALLY THAT GUY)

The night ended hanging almost under a bridge drinking delicious convenience store boozy drinks before last train.** I managed to get back to my place, but it was only through keeping my brain occupied and alert through drunk Facebooking.***

Next week is BIC in Busan! More then.

*Keep an eye on that one.

**Mikan IS the best flavour. I will never doubt you.

***I’m really good at drunk Facebooking. Like you don’t even know the flavour.
