Soooo big. Had a white chocolate mocha at Starbucks.
Now I'm going to assume it was you that had the mocha, not Lucas...

Congrats. And a great way to celebrate .

Nothing in my cup. Must do something about that.

Congrats on signing the sale deed; that must feel as a big step!
BTW: I hope the chef threw something edible at you?

In my cup: cold coffee

Nice looking couple! Japanese food too! What a coincidence ... I had Japanese food for dinner tonight too. But... You are wearing 'Yukata,' not kimono. Almost the same but not quite. Yukata are more like house robes rather than formal wear. But ya both still look pretty darn good!

Thanks! He threw pieces of baked egg mostly. It was very funny to watch, real show cooking

Thanks Our waitress said to us: "please put on your kimono", so I'd assumed that's what it was. Thank you for the clarification! I'm still not completely sure whether I like Japanese food or not ... Everything was really salty, and I use as little salt as possible when I'm cooking.

Be happy it wasn't raw egg he was throwing. MUCH harder to catch...

Congrats on the finalization! You do realize that now need to walk around and pee on all your borders to mark your territory...

Quote:

One big difference is in the belt. If you had a really wide Kimono Obi, about 10" wide, and several under-kimono, then it was a kimono. (Also, it would be tight around your neck rather than opened.) A thin sash closes a Yukata, which is also shorter than a Kimono.

Quote:
I'm still not completely sure whether I like Japanese food or not ...
It is said that "Japanese eat with their eyes, while Westerners eat with their tongues." In Japanese cooking, the 'presentation' is more important than the taste. And the tastes tend to be rather thin compared with other cuisines. Frankly, it's not one of my favorites, although I eat it almost every day for at least one meal. Until quite recently, I couldn't even eat Japanese cakes and pastries... They were incredibly beautiful, but tasted like a feather pillow...

Quote:

Most dishes are made with shoyu (soy sauce) which is salty. Add in some seaweed, which is salty, and you get some pretty salty foods. When we cook Japanese food at home, we don't add salt as the ingredients tend to make it salty enough.

... does this mean you can own serfs? And if so, does your boyfriend get 'prima nocta?' (It was his grin that got me thinking...) I mean, I own a condo, but we didn't get any peasants with it. Did I screw up somewhere along the line?

In the early morning rain
With a dollar in my hand
With an achin' in my heart
And my pockets full of sand
I'm a long way from home
And I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain
With no place to go

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OCnHNk2Hac )

Good morning, all! A rainy Tuesday morn, and lots to do today... First though, a big mug of Taylors of Harrogate's "English Breakfast" tea, a plate of hummus, some Kalamata olives, and Kavli. Then it's 'put on the rubber gloves and get to work. Today's the day to wash the walls. This means moving all the furniture away to make room, taking down all the pictures and decorations, etc., etc., and mixing up a batch of 'Oxy-Clean.' If you've seen the infomercials on TV, this stuff really, really works they way they promise! It cuts right through oily grime like butter, and gets the dirt off the tops of aircon unites, door moldings, etc., as well as brightening up the walls! As soon as we get it cleaned up the real estate agents can begin bringing potential buyers around. The last time we moved to Thailand we just rented out the place. This time we want to sell it as we don't plan on coming back.
