But I’m big in Japan…
…my agent tells me.
“Exciting news Sweetie! Something’s flamed on the Suntory shoot in Tokyo and they
need you there yesterday! Can you be at YVR in….um….forty minutes?”
(Oh that’s just GREAT! *rolls eyes* Naomi’s hit someone again.)
“I’ll courier the tickets to the airport for you, it’s the 1640 to Narita. When you arrive tell the Limo to take you into Meguro.
You’ll be staying at The Claska. You are writing all this down aren’t you dear?”
(*groans* If I hadn’t just woken up to the phone ringing and had my own personal assistant/slave I would be, yes.)
They are on panic deadline. And don’t forget your cutlets this time.”
(ARE YOU ******* KIDDING ME?? The jetlag is going to be brutal!)
“Did I mention this one’s triple rate?”
(…erm…I’ll be out the door in 15.)
“And you will stay away from that Prada-Meinhoff gang this time, won’t you doll?
That isn’t an escapade we want to repeat.
You have no Idea what it cost to get those pics out of their clutches.”
(It wasn’t my fau…*bites lip*. *sulky voice* oK!)
(It’s a good thing I keep a standby travel pack ready for scrambles like these.)
(Damn, I could use a latte!)
(*sigh* Better not. Can I go back to sleep now?)

A note on price and quality.
Some of the items in this lineup are priced considerably higher than is the norm in SL. Notably the Kalnins sunglasses, the Stiletto Moody Boots, and the furniture sets from Abiss. That said however, I must also say the quality of work in these items is stunningly good. The Kalnins come with a great set of configurable commands and gadgets. The Moody boots are also configurable in many ways. The Abiss furniture is among the best modern furniture I have seen in SL and comes from an exceptionally well laid out and visually pleasing store.
I also should special mention the vinyl bag from Spica. It sells as a two pack, one blue and one pink, for a giveaway price of 70L. It is delightful.
