Last night we saw just about the most unwatchable anime we’d ever seen, Kirarin Revolution. For a kids anime about pop idols, the music was unbelievably bad.
We also watched “Maguro!” and true to its name, it was a cold fish of a show. I don’t think it could have been more trite or lifeless if it tried.
Also watched the Jets pwn the Raiders, which was nice. Hope they didn’t blow it in the fourth quarter when I turned the TV off.
It’s raining today. We had tentatively planned to get together with Rica, who wanted us to go to one of those “traditional village” set ups, but the weather is really nasty and Pattie’s still feeling bad. We had both wanted to visit the National Museum anyway, so that seems like a good choice for today. I have yet to visit any of Tokyo’s museums, and I’m a huge museum hound. So while we are going to miss Nakano this trip, I’m okay with that. Heaven knows I got enough crap.
Well, the other boot dropped. Remember way back in the beginning of the trip I said that something was terribly wrong, because everything was going okay? Well, the wife clearly is down for the count with a stomach virus and, as we all, know, there’s nothing for that, except liquids, rest and a lot of whining.
Yes, I could go off and do stuff without her, but I don’t want to, because it would be no fun without her, and for some other reasons that I’m not going to elaborate on. And the weather’s crappy, anyway, and I have a headache. So, I guess today’s cancelled too. That kind of sucks, but we had 6 great days here, and I had a ton of fun in that week, so I can’t really complain.
In the meantime, I’m still making my way through a pile of anthologies I bought, and I’ll try to meet up with Rica at least for a little while before we leave.
