Monday - Sunny, windy and cool
A good day. Incroyable mais vrai!
I have my spell checker turned on in Text Edit and it did not like me typing French up there.
I got up early this morning, took a shower while F was out running some errands, and then settled in to watch The Ghost Whisperer with him when he returned. It was a repeat, but I watched it anyway.
We went to the Komagi-ga-hara spa for their buffet lunch today. It was not great, but not terrible either. They have fairly decent desserts there. After lunch, we decided to go to karaoke for a bit. We went for a couple of hours. I think of it as practicing for next month! I sang a lot and even tried some older stuff.
We went to get my train tickets for next month, but made a quick run home first to check dates and make sure that I know when I'm staying and when I'm arriving. We got the tickets, and the station clerk was nice enough to give me tickets in English.
We zoomed off to Machi-Kine next to see Lincoln. We were a little early, but only by a few minutes. We got our popcorn and then went in. I liked the film, it was well done and of course Daniel Day-Lewis was excellent as Lincoln. I liked some of the other performances though…Sally Field as his wife, Tommy Lee Jones, even and especially James Spader as a more comic character. I did have a couple of times when I closed my eyes a little longer than I should, but I enjoyed the film. Afterwards F asked me a few questions about Lincoln's life and I pointed out that I didn't know much because I'm not American after all.
We had a good dinner in Sukaze, I had a mixed dinner, F had udon. We were both pleased with our choices. After our meal we came home via the grocery store and the gas station.
At home we relaxed for a bit. F watched his Ultimate Fighting nonsense, and then I watched The Newsroom. It was excellent again.
That basically was my day. It was really nice, and capped off a lovely 3 day weekend. We both relaxed and took things easy, which seemed to be good for both of us!
Tomorrow F is back at work and I will be stuck in front of my computer until my column and report are done. Wish me luck. I must go. Night.
