I don't think he really CAN be 52 years old.
Maybe Okaasan forgot when she had 'im!
She certainly forgot that it WAS his birthday...and...amazingly WHERE she gave birth to this wondrous son! Osaka? Tokyo? Hospital? Home? Not really sure.
To celebrate his birthday (actually today) we have watched SEVEN horror movies this week: in the "Saw" series.
Seriously scary stuff. But addictive. I'll probably start torturing butterflies next, except Popo already does that.
We'd recorded the first two movies off TV and watched them Sunday...then got hooked and realized it was a successful series. So Yujiro was down the DVD shop getting the rest. And we finished last night at the movie theater with 3D glasses to see Saw VII.
And then we went to our fave Belgian bar/restaurant and pigged out on a whole roast chicken, chips, salad and lots of delicious Belgian beer.
And so was his birthday.
And in other news: I cooked paella and Okaasan LOVED it. Yes, she liked something I cooked and ate endless bowls of it - way after we'd stopped eating, she was still helping herself happily to more.
Just an ordinary week here. Thankfully.
Okaasan went to hula. I worked a bit - but had two days off thanks to a well placed public holiday. Yujiro rested his eyeballs between horror movies. I exercised the leg and stomach...did a little too much walking one day and rested up the other days. The kittens got all excited about the first Christmas decorations emerging from the cupboard under the stairs...
Things happened to other people - not me, for a change. I can do MORE of this. I enjoy boring life.
A friend is having SKYPE interviews for a job in the UK, another friend is waiting nervously to hear if her first IVF egg has a chance to become a baby and a student heard that she WILL go to the Uk to study at medical school.
Things happening to other people. That's fine!
