Rahul has been in town this week which has been nice because it has meant that we have gone out almost every night. We went to the arcade and udon last night and we went shopping and ate sushi tonight. The sushi was awesome, udon too.
Need to do some shopping this weekend for holiday stuff. We went to a store called Don Quixote or Donki for short this evening and it had some awesome stuff. Maybe I will head back and look for some gifts.
Anyway, things are good. I have been learning about Japanese sports, video games and television shows - all the important stuff. For those of you who watch this gameshow in the US it is apparently a take on a Japanese gameshow called Takeshi's Castle which has long since been off the air but we had fun at lunch today comparing notes on which events we all remembered from the show.
Lots of interesting things to report but maybe I shouldn't try to pack them all into one blog post. I should pace myself.
FYI - this movie looks awesome:
I was showing the team some of the Japanese gameshow videos that Dave showed me back in Mountain View which are funny as hell. I didn't show them this one, so a bonus for team members who follow my blog - credit goes to David.
The beginning is awesome but I lost some interest after the bad smell one. If you watch any of them skip to 7:45 to watch the "old man biting tenderly". Holy cow that's nuts.
I like the fact that some of them pretend to read inbetween.
OK, getting late.
