A sad day for movie fans. My favourite movie critic, Roger Ebert lost his fight with cancer today. I have been a huge fan of Ebert since his Siskel & Ebert shows. In Canada I have two of his books and I check his website frequently to see if it is worth seeing some of the films that I plan to see. He had been ill for years, but even though he lost the ability to speak, found a new voice through the internet. I will miss him greatly.
In other things, I got up, had a quiet morning around the apartment. F called me just before noon and asked if I'd like a bento, so I said sure. He brought me one and we had a nice meal. I had miso pork and he had salmon, plus we shared a chicken cutlet.
F left and I didn't. I finally roused myself to do a load of laundry and a little tidying. F came home around 6:30 and we had a little chat for a while. After that, we went out for dinner. He asked to go to Midori Shokudo, but I couldn't face it. We ended up going to a soba chain restaurant for an okay meal. We hit up the drugstore afterwards for a few items and came home.
I watched a bit of TV, but I did turn control of the box to F a few times, so he wasn't left out. We're now watching some weird thing where in Japanese where the guy is eating a nabe and talking all about it. It's actually quite annoying.
Tomorrow I have an afternoon class and we might go and see a movie in the evening. I'll come back tomorrow and give you all the news. Until then, the balcony is closed.
