M: i do wanna eat it because its like the special food from the anime and then- but i cant- and then this is supposed to be a bicycle might get this one because it is yurio D: just looks like another crepe and i think we can eat it but, whats this one? D: its Chris’s! it looks like a sad school meal D: thats- actually thats an insult to school meals D: but what i just realized why its for chris D: see the sausages? 2 sausages? 2 sausages and the cream ok this is the “theres no gold medal for you to eat little piggy(?)” ice cream M: and it comes with this

M: 3.5?! D: its not me! pitchfork does. that way i dont get blamed for it M: oh out of 10. i thought you meant out of 5 D: its got like lots of different flavours that just dont go together well. like white chocolate, black beans and mango D: like, what were they smoking when they came up with this, like seriously
M: why?!?? and that was the “pigs cant eat gold metals” ice cream So this garapon thing is basically like a lottery you pay to spin the wheel and then you pray for something other than plastic bookmarks guess what i got… plastic bookmarks but duncan had better luck than me! M: oh my gooood! you got it! i failed! i got a whole lot of bookmarks M: i got Viktor and Yuri and Minami M: thats so cute oh my god! yuriooooo! Vikor!! and yuri! you got all 3?? im so jealous now.. and chris the only thing left to do was take overpriced yuri on ice themed purikura purikura is usually 400 yen, around about $4, and this one was 600 yen thats quite a markup just for some yuri on ice stickers but we dont care because we’re just that far gone time for some yuri on ice purikura~ i cant decide! tap that one, and yurio! that- that was ok! lets stand up a little bit higher thats better right i like this one better now what could possibly top yuri on ice themed food, touching Makkachin, and taking expensive photo stickers? a cat cafe! so we decided to head to one cos we’re just cool, ok! like this is what we do on our days off so, we decided to randomly come to a cat cafe and we’re at Nekobukuro in Ikebukuro which is on the top floor of Tokyo hands are you having fun?
