Thanks Supergirl!

Last night Liquid Courage hosted the 3rd annual Crawfish Akasaka Halloween party. 60+ people including the band members enjoyed a 3+ hour nomihoudai and lots of meat and fried food. Though I was a little nervous about keeping up with orders in our humble establishment, it seemed that with the help of SuperGirl we were able to to polish off 7 bottles of vodka, 5 bottles of Gin, 2 bottles of Jack Daniels, 1+ bottle of Cassis, 1+ bottle of Captain Morgan, 1+ case of Corona, 4 kegs of ebisu and countless other random potables. 15 limes were sacrificed for the event.

Everyone tells me that Supergirl & her companion, Jake, made them euphorically drunk, full up with food & entertainment, and more than satisfied.


My brother joins us to entertain. Thanks Superman!

More MVPs in town...

and this was not just one night!

No more hangovers!

Between Rugby World Cup and my company having some very fun execs in town, I've had some wild and crazy nights and long days at the office.

Ireland in the quarter final tomorrow and execs on planes.


 Bras with patterns and t-shirts. Even the middle-aged ladies do it. I don't get it.

work-aholic lifestyle

I work four days a week at my day job, being an all-around sales support for a recruitment company. Here's a dialogue I had with our office manager when I came in on my off day this week...

"Hey, why are you here?"
"Oh, I was online when I woke up, on the phone after my shower, just couldn't get away from it - too much to finish before the weekend. So, I ask if I should finish and help set-up for Crawfish or if we should have a nice lunch and then I go to the office for a few hours while he set up."
"Oh you had lunch?"
"Yeah I made it at home."
"Oh so you cooked lunch? That's nice."
"...well, I cooked toast - good toast with cheese and meat, and there was yogurt and bananas... I guess we had brunch." 

I love my jobs!

little things that make me smile...

Getting off the train at my station last night and a tiny teenager was waiting to get on. She was wearing a purple t-shirt dress that had a nice vintage wear to it. In college gear style it said, "MINNESOTA" in a rainbow arch on the top and "football" across the bottom.

Mama's Boy Lashes Out

Buddy, our dog, just bit my nipple. He didn't bite my boob and clip my nipple, he actually (seemingly) focusing on the nipple, made a concentrated hop and bit down hard on my nipple when I came in the house this evening. GOSH, I wan only gone for the day as usually and I think he was only alone a hours! 

Birthday Live, Kids are great!

We almost had more kids than adults at the birthday live this afternoon. As were fun and well behaved. I enjoyed observing the languages used and most of the children are raised in English-Japanese homes. It seems most opted for Japanese amongst themselves, but weren't always sure whether to speak Japanese or English to me. The older ones (probably the 5-8 crowd) were the most fun for me. I had three or four that I felt were my cheer squad as the hung out at the bar (where we served food as well as drinks) and stared at me with smirks. One boy in particular, who had a slight British accent, was more outspoken and told me what he thought of the cake and the foods he wanted to eat. Towards the end of the afternoon, he saw Jake at the bar for the first time. He had seen him in the back frosting the cake and they were certainly buddies. So when he realizes that the Jake is the only person emerging from the back he says, " Only ONE Chef?!...   BEAUTIFUL!" Jake understood the very clear pronunciation and was flattered. The boy continued, "Genius! ...Genius!" and gave a thumbs up. Then he paused and said, "Are you poor?!"

I love running a bar and speaking with adults most of the time, but a couple times a year, it's fun to have a bunch of kids running around and interacting in our second home of Crawfish.

HAPPY Birthday, Rich!
