...just woke up from a nice nap. It's a lazy day, and Steve (rootbeer1) and I have been hanging around most of the day, waiting for the Big Storm that's been forcast for today--where is it? Just some drizzly rain so far.

Last night Steve made pesto chicken for dinner, baked on a bed of sliced potatoes and onions to absorb the juices. Very tasty, and this morning I fried the leftover potatoes in olive oil and butter, with lots of pepper, and served them with fried eggs for breakfast. After that healthy meal, we were off to Kabuki Hot Springs. We made a few calls to see if anyone wanted to join us, but to no avail. The hot water and steam felt so good after two days with no heat (our furnace fan burned out--fixed now). As we were leaving two incredibly handsome bears (that we didn't know--gasp!) were just checking in. We all made goo-goo eyes at each other, but alas, our turn in the spa was over, so it was off to the sushi boats for lunch. The unagi was especially good today.

Then a visit to the Kinokuniya Bookstore in the Japantown Mall--one of our favorite places. As an origami enthusiast, I think it's the best place in the City to buy books, and I picked up a few, plus a few surprises for someone's birthday next Saturday. Considered getting a crepe, but was too full of raw fish and rice, so we came home and I threw a load of baseball caps in the laundry. Usually this works out well, but a few of the caps didn't do so hot this time. They're air-drying now.

Steve's making Spanish rice and chile verde with pork for dinner tonight, and we'll settle in for a movie. Ah, domesticity...

PS--I ripped all 20 episodes of Queer Duck from Flash to MP4 yesterday, and they're residing happily on my new video iPod. If anyone wants 'em, let me know (Gary).

PPS--I'm trying out new bifocal contact lenses--Bausch & Lomb PureVision Multi-Focal. Kind of wonky. I really only wear 'em to the gym, so they'll probably be fine.

Wow... I usually would have joined you a Kabuki... Zeke & I have gotten to like that place a lot. We usually go with our friends Kevin or Eric (Kevin is Scrumdown on Bear411, Eric is Wink) so I wonder if that's who you saw?!?!

Anyway, next time check in with us, guys! I was on my own today, but have a nasty cold and didn't want to spread it around Kabuki!

Nope, we've met Eric and Kevin. These guys had dark, dark beards.

We certainly will! We try to go at least once a month, but I'm always up for a soak.

We've met Kevin and Eric--wasn't them. One guy had a really dark beard.

Get better soon----

Did someone say queer duck? Oh my gay stars!

At which sushi boat place did you eat? I love fun eating!

Don't look at me, I'm a mess!!

We went to Isobune, my favorite place. A little pricey, but the best sushi in town, I think. And you're right there in the mall, so you can shop for kimonos and origami paper and little cute Hello Kitty things after you eat!

Yes, part of the lens is for near vision, part for far. based on your pupil size the proper part supposedly is used, but I'm finding I have to roll my eyes a bit to enhance my vision. Of course, I'm usually rolling my eyes all day anyway, so it works out.
