Japantown... Again?

So I went back to Japantown today to do some back to school "furnish Henna's room" shopping. (Laundry bags... etc...)
So I did! Hurrah! I also went back to Benkyodo to get more of that delicious ichigo daifuku mochi that I got yesterday. It was so delicious.

Went back to the restaurant around three to make sammies for tomorrow. I...well... might have had an impromptu karaoke/dance party when we turned Pandora to the Beatles Station. But it was all good man, all good.

After the sandwiches were done, Heidi and I went back to the house to clean up for dinner with some of her friends. We were heading out for a (my first) TAPAS EXPERIENCE! WAHOO!
It was delicious. Lobster paella, Spanish tortilla with potato inside, blood sausage, artichoke chips... etc. I don't even remember.

But that's all... I'm struggling to keep my eyes open!

Love,
Henna

JAPANTOWN!

Oh, that's embarrassing, after I got all caught up, I almost forgot to post today!

Well, I slept in really late. When I woke up, I had that horrible drowsy feeling from sleeping too much. But Genevieve offered to go with me to Japantown! (So why not go? I love Genevieve!) So we hopped on the 38L Geary to Japantown! Hurrah!

First, we ran to Benkyodo to get some super fresh, delicious MOCHI! (I seem to have mochi all the time, don't I?) It closed at five and we got there around 4:54. SCORE! I got four different kinds of mochi for dessert tonight, but got a fifth... an Ichigo Daifuku (strawberry) and ate it. It was so delicious. With our delicious mochis in bags and our stomachs, we headed over to little supermarkets. I saw so many awesome things (I got three pairs of chopsticks and some rice seasoning). But I'm going back tomorrow to do some school shopping. They had nice organizational shelve thingies. Then we kept on exploring and found PIKAPIKA! Pika Pika is the purikura Japanese photo booths. (I'm trying to drag Heidi and Nate to karaoke on Saturday... maybe they'll go to Pika Pika with me?)

But I had to do some shopping for dinner, so we headed over to le supermarche! And guess what they had there? Lots of FIIISH. The name of one fish, when translated into english, read "Idiot Fish". Genevieve's comment? "Well yea, the idiot got caught!" :D

I had a wonderful day and had so many yummy treats. Can't wait for finishing school shopping tomorrow!

Love,
Henna

Here You Are. Just For You.

New Book!

I bought a book today. It was pretty. (Third in the Ice and Fire (or vice-versa) series.) YEEHAW.

Then I went into work and made sandwiches! Came home and played internet games.

Look Ma! I'm updated!

Love,

I'm a bad, bad person. I'm sorry. Forgive me?

Last week in recap mode!

Saturday Night! (8.14.10)
THE GIG! YES! 1:30 in the morning, sang "Take On Me". Everyone sang along. Come on man, it was at Ireland's 32 at 1:30 in the morning, OF COURSE they sang along. (Don't you know the meaning of an Irish bar?) I wore the best boots ever. No words can describe how awesome they are. I could describe them... maybe. They're totally awesome ho high heeled contraptions that made me... 5'6"! It was exciting, lemme tell you.
My gaydar died during this gig. As the sober PYT, I noticed several young men dancing around me. One was very sweet, spacey, smiley... And I totally saw him check out another guy.

Nope. Nooooope. Totally straight. However, he almost died in horror and shame when his friend later told him I was 16. I wish I could have seen his face...

Four more words. Old. Drunk. Irish. Man.
No more. We shall not mention him.

Sunday (8.15.10)
We all slept until noon. Sleep was beautiful. I'm trying to remember if we did anything that evening.
Waiiiit. I know. We watched "A Boy and His Dog". Love the twist ending. If you haven't seen it... well... you should. Pardon all the sperm jokes in it.

Monday (8.16.10)
We had pantry suprise! Eggwhites, tomatoes, bacon...?

Tuesday (8.17.10)
I debated auditioning for American Idol. Hooray? We watched True Blood some more. And ate its-its! (Traditional San Francisco ice cream cookie thingies.)

Wednesday (8.18.10)
Debated some more about auditioning for American Idol. Chatted with some nice audition-ees.

Thursday (8.19.10)
Didn't audition after all. Three blocks was way to far to walk. And the lines for the actual audition took all day to get through. :P Blech.

Friday (8.20.10)
We made blondies in the restaurant for a catering gig in the park the next day. We also ordered some AWESOME Southern Indian food. It was utterly delicious.

Saturday (8.21.10)
We had a great BBQ at home! Lovely steak and lamb! Stayed up all night with the great Jewish crowd.

Sunday (8.22.10)
We went for a 7 mile walk through Golden Gate Park. It was great because we ended up at Beach Chalet for lunch (I had to hunt down the garlic fries guy. More like stalk him. *sigh*)

Monday (8.23.10)
Heidi made a GREAT bean salad with bacon in it. Bacon makes everything AWESOME. (I mean, it was awesome anyways... but... I... love bacon?)

Tuesday (8.24.10)
We'd been having a heat wave all week, so we decided that I would sit outside at work and sell lemonade. I sat there all day. And I sold 20 lemonades? Not bad. However... I had several women when I greeted them return my courtesy with "No thanks". Well then. It's not I was gonna sell you any anyways. Just... just dehydrate, yea?
Then came the facebook comments along with the advertising picture.
"My advice? Put the staff member in a bikini!" Hurmph. What pervs.
Did I mention I was selling advice Lucy from "Peanuts" style?

Love,
Henna

One more post until I'm updated!
