(no subject)

Well, the holiday was ok. I brought the kittens over to Mom's house, and although Belle and Moccasin weren't so sure about them, there was only some hissing/growling and no attacking. I made stuffing, mushroom gravy, and pumpkin cheesecake, and stuff came out ok. Yay food.

Andy visited over the weekend, and we spent the vast majority of it gaming and watching Evangelion and movies. He'd also never been to a real Mexican restaurant, which is pretty close to blasphemy in my opinion, so we fixed that. At one point, Bouncer was getting awfully snuggly with him, and I got a little jealous. But hey, I can't complain, because I snuggle with other cats (and sometimes dogs), so she's allowed to snuggle other humans... er, humanoids, anyway. Why, I came home smelling like two dogs tonight, since I was at Laura's house for a few minutes before we went out to eat. I "danced" with a big happy blond guy who kept trying to make out with me, while a smaller black girl sniffed around curiously without really letting me touch her. Anyway, so the weekend was very counter-productive, but fun. And Ben stopped by on his way back from Erie, so I got to see him too, even if it was brief.

So the restaurant Laura and I went to tonight is called Sawa, and it's a new sushi/hibachi place (you pick whether you want to sit by the sushi bar or at the hibachi tables) at the mall. I'd been there once before with my mom and liked it. They have blue lights, which is a little weird at first, but you get used to it. I got tempura udon this time. Now, the picture on the menu was of a bowl of soup with a few tempura pieces on top. It was $13, but I figured "what the heck." Well, the waitress brought out this GINORMOUS boat-shaped bowl that was bigger than my head, with a full plate of tempura. Whoahmygosh, food overload. Definitely worth $13 right there. So I probably ate 1/3 of the soup, and Laura helped devour the tempura, and now I have a big container of soup in my fridge for later. Yay! It was delicious, but I swear, that totally could have fed 2-3 people. Laura had a couple kinds of sushi (the sushi there is also pretty tasty), but the fun part was when she accidentally downed a glob of wasabi. (Well, it was fun for me anyway, because wasabi faces are hilarious.) The waitress was very nice and helpful to those not very familiar with Japanese food (Laura, not me). I really like that place, and I'll definitely be back in the future. I think I like it better than Taipei Tokyo, although at Taipei Tokyo, they give you reasonably-sized portions and not holycrapI'dhavetohavethestomachofahorsetofinishthis portions. Then again, who am I to complain about leftovers?

So I'm not sure what's up with my body right now. I'd been having an on/off headache for a couple days, and then I woke up with a sore neck this morning. I feel like my allergies are acting up a bit more than usual, but I'm not sure if they're allergies. And for some reason, I feel a little chilly even though I'm wearing 3 layers of clothing. Now, I'd suspect a cold, but my colds tend to be very predictable. I haven't been sick in roughly 2 years (knock on something wooden-like), but before that, I would have 2 fairly mild colds a year, and then I'd be ok. But they followed a pattern. I'd wake up with a sore throat. Then the next day, my head would explode, and I'd feel like hiding under a blanket with a cup of tea and watching cartoons all day for a few days. Then there'd be a residual mild runny nose for a week or two, and I'd be better. But this time, there's no sore throat. Just a bunch of random ambiguous symptoms. Hmmm. I hope I didn't infect anyone I've seen over the past few days. Maybe my body got tired of being boring and predictable and decided to get sick in a new way. *shrug* Or... maybe I'm not sick and just need to switch to the pillow on the other side of the bed and have more tea or something. I already kinda spent the weekend under a blanket, watching cartoons...
