Well, looks like I’ll be flying solo after tonight. Fondy leaves tomorrow for an intense, month-long course in California meaning I’ll be on my own until her return in March. Well, not totally alone. I will have my dogs and the ever-comforting companionship of prime time television. Also, I will be reading like a madman. A madman who enjoys reading. A lot. Fortunately, Fondy has taken pains to ensure I want for nothing while she‘s gone, stocking up on everything from hydrogen peroxide to toilet paper. I have enough bottled water to last me into next year, and enough canned food to keep me fed until Summer – after which all bets are off and the exquisitely well-marbled Maximus will no doubt cross that fine line between cute and downright tasty-looking. Or I suppose I could just eat the Christmas ornaments like Lulu did today.
Or I could just head over to Tojo’s for sushi like we did last night (this despite Bugguy’s helpful link to that article about the alarmingly high mercury levels in tuna). The uni was unbelievably fresh, the spicy dynamite hand cones crispy, sweet, and downright delicious. Other stellar hand cones included the lobster cone, the Magnum P.I. (for those geoduck sashimi fans), and spicy tuna (but I limited myself to one, Bugguy!). A little saba and tuna tataki nigiri (I limited myself to two!), and a spider roll and inside-out salmon roll rounded out the meal. I’ve dreamt of Tokyo three nights in a row (the fact that we weren’t able to get there this past hiatus I’m sure had a lot to do with it) and this dinner was just what I needed. A little taste of my home away from home.
No mailbag today but, here, have a video instead.
