In General Am I stupid or what? Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Well the blogs up to date, eventually..... It`s my last day in the office here, flying out tomorrow, what can I do tonight?

Ummmmmmmm, I know, how about a farewell drink with that friendly Yoshinkan chappie down in Roppongi . Have arranged to meet up with Stumpy again for a farewell drink after work tonight, although I have promised that I will only be having a "half"............ Am I stupid or what (again, I didn`t ask for comments from the peanut gallery thank you)?

Honestly, no, really, I`m travelling tomorrow, I can`afford to get messed up like last week!! (that`s why I`m writing it here up front before I go, so if I do get drunk, not that Mike would do that to me again, would he? , he`s got nowhere to hide and everyone will know who`s fault it is..............hahahahahahaaaaaaaa ).

Before I leave, one comment on the very cool menu system at the izakaya I went to the other night (a different one). Most Japanese izakaya have a very extensive picture based menu. This one was no different, except that it was all on a touch screen. All you did was look at the pics, touch the one you want and add it to the list, once your list is complete you press send and wait. Food starts arriving shortly after. When we arrived at the izakaya, my colleague ordered a coke without ice through a real live waitress, when we ordered a second drink through the automated menu, it also turned up without ice. How cool is that, it must have recorded my voice when I placed the initial order..................................

Right then, onto part two of my trip. Of to the good old US of A. Won`t have as much "free" time as I`ve had here, don`t have as many aiki (read drinking) buddies to socialize with there, the office folks are pretty sedated, but am planning to visit George Ledyards dojo (if he`ll still have me after this debacle ).

ooh goody, more jet lag!

itekimasu!
