“Gundam” Austin, 2022

Tonight my good friend Mikey and I went to watch Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island at the Alamo Drafthouse. I don’t know anything about Gundam besides them being giant soldier-robots, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I was interested and it’s a perfect movie to see with Mikey. (when an anime is showing at the theater in Austin, Mikey and I will most likely go see it together)

It was a fun show! The battles were pretty cool, although there weren’t as many as I thought there might be. I liked all the characters and there were some funny jokes scattered through the story. I don’t think it will win any awards, but it was entertaining, nonetheless, and made for a nice evening!

“Udon” Austin, 2022

Tonight we went to a birthday party for a friend who requested udon. It was a lot of fun! I got to roll out the dough for a bit, and wow, that is tough work! But our friends are professionals, so even with my poor effort, the udon was in good hands. 😀

We also enjoyed a nice selection of saké, played with the hosts dogs and cats, and ate cake. It was awesome. I haven’t eaten udon too many times before, but I am growing to appreciate it. Double onsen-tamago is also nice. I love eggs!

“Candle” Cedar Park, 2022

While decluttering, I found a bag of about 75 tea candles. I didn’t realize we had collected so many! So, I am going to make an effort to use them more often. I wonder how many months it will take to get through them all. 🤔

“Baked Goodies” Cedar Park, 2022

Mariko returned from her trip to the east coast tonight. She went to Vermont to attend baking classes at King Arthur Baking Company. And she was able to bring back a bunch of goodies! I can’t wait to eat. 😀♥️🥖🍞
