I met Hiroko's boyfriend, Niko, today. He's cute and Belgian, really sweet and warm and open - perfect for Hiroko! I didn't expect to meet him today, or I would have taken pictures. (Of course!)|
In other, top-secret news, I'm about to get a really, really big opportunity. I don't want to say too much, because I know I'll probably fuggitup. But it's all I can think about, so I've let it slip to several people. Here is a hint:
I'll tell you all about it in a few months.
We got six bags of large tortillas today, and a kilo of chedder cheese. Cheep! I just harvested some cilantro, and I smell fiercely of cilantro all over. (Or coriander, depending where you're from.) Can you guess what's for dinner?
Today, while I slaved away, Don whacked golf balls with Jason and Simon. Then he watched K1 until he passed out. The life of a programmer!
On a different topic completely, when I first got to Japan, I was chatting with Lobster and he said, "Of course you're going to document this whole experience." Which seemed like a taxing burden at the time... until LiveJournal. LiveJournal: For the Lazy Documentarian.
Tomorrow, Don is teaching a cooking lesson at Eating Studio -- I mean, English Studio! Then another of Sandy's all-night dance extravaganzas at Yellow Jackets. I wanna rock-and-roll all night!
I thought I'd been saving up a lot of things to say, but they aren't coming to me now. Except, yay for Friendster! Hi, Ralph!
are you making enchiladas?
*ERrRNK!* (buzzer sound signaling incorrect answer)
WE HAVE A WINNER! QUESADILLA IS THE WINNER!
my dad has been to dubai
he said it was interesting and he was treated luxuriously
but not sure how much fun it would be
but i read into it a LONG time ago when looking for jobs abroad
that curved hotel is INSANE..as everything 5star around there - on decadent practices :P
should be interesting...
You blew my cover!! Uh.. my scant cover. =) What'd he go for?
my dad worked for this architectural firm RTKL, I think he was VP and did marketing... he'd go aroudn and shmooze... he thought he'd get some project going with Prince Awaleed... he travelled around with him a couple of weeks a few times as an advisor, in dubai and egypt... they'd get in these huge tour-bus type things nad hit the highway or fly... Awaleed was a friend of michael jackson's - it's all really odd.
nothing ever panned-out though deal-wise with my Dad's efforts.
Too bad it didn't work out, but that must have been really interesting.
