hi guys! just to let you know i met pimpim yesterday and gave him the postcard. i'll post a long tournament report when i get back to uppsala tonight. i plan to miss class either monday or tuesday when i find out when tojo and pimpim will play so hopefully i'll have more to report. but basically here's what happened: i held up the envelope and started to explain that it's a postcard inside, which all his fans have signed and sent around the world. i was so nervous i kept stutterring
then he said "aww, thank you" and then i asked if i could get a signature and a photo taken with him and he said yes of course. then after the signature i looked around for someone who could take the picture (i was by myself) and i asked one of the many kids swarming around him. but this kid didn't understand english and i was like oh who could i ask, and pimpim was looking the other way to see if there was any adult there but thankfully this lady walked past so i got her to take the picture. i will post it later. but he was so sweet, he signed autographs for all the kids around him (there were heaps). also in the stalls area, there's a stall for cottonfield which has a huge picture of pimpim on the wall wearing their product. i just had to take a picture of that too! and when i watch him play i'm sure there'll be a lot more pics to come!
