Japanese for dinner with @[email protected]! Excellent food and excellent company, A++ would dinner again.
I got the chicken katsu don and have been thoroughly enjoying having sake with my Japanese dinners when I have them, it's such a nice accompaniment.
It was lovely to see @[email protected] and @koosli in person again, and to meet @[email protected] for the first time!
Definitely would not recommend Time For Thai near Central though, my dish was extraordinarily bland and @yayKM's was inedibly fishy. 👎🏻
New sunglasses day!
I know this ordinarily would be completely unremarkable, but these are replacing the ones I've had for almost fourteen years that I bought on my very first trip to visit @yayKM when she was still living in the US. They were broken from a small child stepping on them when I was over playing music at my friend's house a couple of weeks ago. 😭 The original pair were the style "Dash AF" style from Native Eyewear which has since been consumed by the horrible massive conglomerate Luxottica but I managed to find an alternative (thanks to Reddit's r/sunglasses in fact) that looks almost identical and the company is still independent, "Parallel 2" from Smith Optics.
We had our combination barbecue/jam session today, it was great fun!
It was hilarious though, my friend's younger brother is an actual muso and can legit play, to the extent that he's actually playing a gig tomorrow. He kept trying to tell us stuff (like "So you want to start with a diminished fifth" or whatever) and it was just WAY over our heads and I kept saying, "Look, you're very much overestimating how much skill and knowledge we both have." 😂
