happy day

Since the IMDb lists it, it's hardly a secret that yesterday was our anniversary. (Curiously, someone has added that I was born in Louisiana -- which is true -- no idea who knew that though!) We decided to keep it low-key because of time and $$ constraints, and this awful heat!! So we went to our beloved Mitsuwa with Baby Em and spent the afternoon having fun, even though half the place is closed down. We goggled at the way overpriced but super cute baby toys selection (Mitsuwa is so NOT where I got Em's swanky Totoro stuff!), Ev drooled over all the new vinyl Kaiju, we pored over (but did not buy) the Ultraman Daddy and Child Care Book, and I did buy a book of kid's clothing patterns & designs ("Child's Collection 2005" -- I love those books!) which came with free Usahana fabric to make a little tote or something. There's a fantastic plaid dress that's slightly Goth Loli and super-cute! I'll be making that one when she's big enough, definitely. We then got way too much food (even though half the restaurants were closed as well!), featuring tonkatsu for me, sushi & tempura for Evan, and Baby Em's first taste of tofu! And then I got my heart's desire -- more boxes of Re-Ment miniatures! (Their site is down, but here're some pictures). I cannot begin to tell you how much I love Re-Ment, I mean it's well-known that I love miniature kitchen stuff, fake food, miniature food, and especially fake mini food, so it's like this stuff was created especially for me. I only wish I could afford to actually collect them all!! Finally, we picked up some wagashi -- at last I got the goldfish bowl wagashi I always miss every year (from the rotating seasonal selection) -- and then we started home.

  2. thanks! we had a great time. I would like to say that I do not recommend getting married during the hottest week of the year to anyone -- we had a reason for choosing that date but...I think we're going to have to start visiting Alaska or Canada for our anniversary in the future. It's actually gotten to nearly 90� inside our house today! yuck!

    Happy anniversary, youse two!
    Wow, IMDb certainly has its uses! Like the fact that they know that Matt has been credited both as "Matt Yuan" and "Matthew Yuan" - you know, in the event that another Matthew/Matt Yuan ever collaborates with another John/John Yuan.

  4. Haey, belated happy anniv. What's that part of Tokyo where they sell the plastic food? If I hadn't had a cheapness attack when there I would be the proud owner of a plastic katsu don.
