The Prince of Curry

Tonight's Dinner is カレーの王子様, The Prince of Curry! It's curry for babies, and just about the only vegetarian curry base you can find in Japan. Although you can find plenty of "Indian Style Beef Curry". The mind boggles...
Goog Morninger!

    Only 2 weeks

    Two weeks from today, I will be going home for the first time in a year. I am soooooo excited. In fact I spent today packing my bags so I am ready to skip out the door on the 4th. They're all packed with summery clothes and lots of goodies for the folks back home. (If anybody has any last requests for Japanesey-type things, let me know and I'll be happy to oblige!) And just as I write this very blog entry the last present for my little cutie-nieces was delivered by amazon. Yeah! I can't wait to go home. Swimming in the pool and eating delicious home-cooked food, here I come! Woo-hoo!

    Goog Afternooner!

    P.S. I also packed a new little Japanese friend for the girls ( LoL... just kidding)

    So close, and yet so far

    Just finished watching the Japan/Croatia game, and it was kind of disheartening. The last 15 minutes of the game the Japanese team just seemed to give up, when they should've been hustling all the more. We missed several good goal chances through lack of hustle and it was extremely frustrating to watch. We did end up with a tie score, but most of the credit for that goes to Kawaguchi (the goalie). We have to take on Brazil next and after tonight's lackluster performance I can't say I like our chances.

    Maybe they should just replace the Japanese team with these soccer-playing crows...

    You know you want it...

    More Horacio Elizondo.

    He was the ref for the Czech vs. Ghana game tonight and was in top form, dispensing justice and yellow cards!

    Go Horacio!
