Another day gone

Today was a real bore. My wife had a traditional "noh" singing performance today. I didn't attend because it is in Japanese and I don't know what is going on... it sounds like Gregorian chanting or something but like dogs barking instead. "Noh" is a traditional drama performed in Japan. The worlds are spoken in an ancient dialect much like Old English today. Imagine people performing Shakespeare and you'll get the idea.



I finally watched the Dukes of Hazzard 2005. That movie sucked. I mean the acting was good, and funny, but the story just repeated the same old lame one liners from the TV series. Boss Hogg was skinny ass Burt Reynolds, Uncle Jessie was Willie Nelson... there were so many changes where there shouldn't have been. It was really odd.



Yesterday I went to eat yakitori with my wife and father-in-law. It was good but the place was filled with second-hand smoke. Japan hasn't caught up with the rest of the world in terms of smoke prohibition/separation. Yakitori is basically just skewered chicken grilled and marinated with special sauces. Japan has many kinds of yakitori bars and restaurants.



We also walked our dog Tiger yesterday. She was going awol because she wanted to walk. So we took her out on a walk and let her run free in the barren rice fields. She loves to do that. It was windy yesterday and looked like autumn. The first thing Tiger did when we let her loose was run straight for the ditches filled with water. She got spider webs all on her face. It was funny.

Yakitori sounds nice... I wonder if I will ever get a chance to visit Japan...

Cloudy weather is awesome. We dont get much of that here.
