A Curse on Thee, Foul Temptress!
So, I yesterday I had dinner with a friend at the Itami Diamond City shopping center. I had some good conversation, ate some pizza (just plain old tomato and basil this time... sorry) and drank some chai at Starbucks. All in all I had a pretty good time. Until...
Innocently enough, I thought that on the way home I would pop into the cheese shop at the mall and pick up a little something in the way of a Danish Blue or perhaps a small slice of Gruyere. For you see the last time I had visited Diamond City I had found, to my delight, a small fromagerie, as it were, which specialized in imported cheeses. Little did I suspect (although I really ought to have, given what I know of the typical Japanese taste for truly insipid cheeses) that in the short span of but 2 years it had gone right out off business, taking with it my dreams of Roquefortian refreshment and Brie Bliss... Oh the Humanity!
Needless to say, I was devasted, but fortunately our local supermarket turned out have a decent cheese section, by recourse to which I was able to stave off (for the time being) the cheese cravings which were roused (only to be so cruelly denied) by the beguiling Diamond City Mall.
