Note: This is a series of journal entries from my two years living in Himeji, Japan (1988-1990). I'm archiving them electronically through my blog. Last names have been deleted and replaced with first initial only. For details on this series of blog entries, see this post.
Saturday night was okay. I talked to Barrett, mostly. Shabu-shabu was fun. It's where you "dunk" very thin sliced beef into boiling water. It cooks almost instantly. Then you cook various vegetables, tofu, etc. in the water, and make a kind of soup.
Sunday I slept in, Dave called to make our get together later, then I went back to sleep for awhile. I caught the Shinkaisoku at about 1:00. I waited for Dave at Sogo. He drove by and yelled at me from the street, and said he'd be there soon (not something typically done in Japan). We went to Gaylords for a late lunch, then for ice cream, and girl watching. we had a good time!
I went for choir practice at 4:45...everyone else came at 5...
After practice I went to the student center to practice my solo, and get choir stuff ready.
I sang during church. It went okay, and Erin and Scott were holding up signs during my song, but I never notice them until I sat down...the ding a lings (and what lousy ratings!)!
I stayed with Erin. Scott was staying there, too, so it was a fun evening. We talked and played cards...until 4:30!! (Not too cool, since I had to get up at 9, to go back to Himeji for a student affairs meeting at 12 (which actually started at 1:30)).
Monday was a dull, not worth writing about, day.
