HI EVERYONE! :D

Welcome to the PJT Street Team - the surefire way to score points with the popular kids at your school AND the neat way to earn a trip to Japan. (Not too sure about that first one, but hey, I can dream, right?)

This is the "introduce yourself" thread, and I'd be a horrible host if I didn't start us off, so...

NAME: Evan
FROM: Los Angeles
Describe yourself in three words or less: Odd caffeinated guide
What do you like about Japan?: The efficient public transit, the food, the people, the music, the cheesy television shows... this is a long list.
Why did you join the street team?: Because it's where the cool kids are. ^_^
Hobbies: Cycling, reading manga, running, traveling, designing tours, acting silly.
Favorite Food: Okonomiyaki
Pet Peeve: That person in the DMI parking lot who ALWAYS HAS TO PARK HER CAR OVER TWO SPACES as if the lines didn't apply to them. Grr.

I can understand the "shy and outgoing" thing... it depends on who you are around, you know? :)

Also wanted to say that Gigi and I are THRILLED to have so many tour alums coming to help us out. You people are a level of awesome that I cannot express in the English Language. Or Japanese for that matter.

FYI, mail for the street team is coming soon - in the meantime, feel free to post other threads, chat, relax, hang out (well, virtually hang out... you get the idea) and so on. WELCOME TO YOU ALL!

FROM: Grew up in Wales, but moved to the US in my teens and am now residing in Louisiana.
Describe yourself in three words or less: Optimistic, unique, Brit :D
What do you like about Japan?: Everything! :3 Well to get specific, I enjoy the culture, the language, the customs, art, architecture, fashion(old and new), their history and their present time, the food and of course I enjoy anime, manga and the video games they create :)
Why did you join the street team?: It would seem that I would be helping out a good cause in adding business into the declining tourism and travel in this recession.

Hobbies: Reading (manga, books, scientific magazines and journals), watching anime and Japanese/Korean/Taiwanese dramas, drawing, writing, studying?

Favorite Food: Chicken curry and Rice! (Indian version)
Pet Peeve: Those who prey on the weak! Injustice! And Gossip!
Comments/anything else we should know about you: I'm glad that I can be a part of this time and I hope that my efforts will help out! Hmmm... I may be a psychopath... but I can't quite be sure yet, when I find out, I'll let you know ;D!
