tako-yaki mambo

Life has been unbookish this weekend, though it was decidedly newspaperish when my houseguests missed their plane and I spent all of Saturday afternoon at the airport, waiting for them on the next flight. But when Miyuki and Yumi finally arrived, we came back downtown and had great barbeque and hilarious fun with wonderful friends. Today, we went to Korea Town and they revelled in Asian groceries (after three months living in Regina). I remember how exciting it was to find a can of Campbell’s Soup in Kobe, and it seems they feel the same about tako-yaki in Toronto. Then we went out for their first sushi in months, and it didn’t disappoint. We walked down to Chinatown after, and I took their picture beside the Osaka Hair Salon. We went to the Japanese grocery store on Queen Street, and then went out to St. Lawrence Market, where there was a dog festival and our canine-loving friends found themselves in heaven. Stopped for a drink on a patio and watched inebriation ensue from half a bottle of Corona. By this point, I was terrifically sunburned and redder than the drunk girl. We came home to a wonderful supper of homemade pizza and now we’re tired. And I have to go back to work tomorrow. But they are talking the bus to Niagara Falls! They are the most hilarious houseguests ever ever ever.

    He shaved his head a few weeks ago. Looks quite good actually. The light shines funny in that photo though and he looks bald, which isn’t the case in reality!
