Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

It's been raining like crazy in the Bay Area - something insane like two weeks straight! Considering it rains for a total of 2 weeks or so in a normal year, it's been a very, very wet winter here. And since I am solar-powered, my energy level has been VEEEEEEE~RY low.

But I managed to celebrate the new year by over-imbibing and over-debaucherizing. I had two nights in a row where the night ended in alcoholic amnesia... One of those nights - the 31st - was more just pure sleepiness, but jeez, I partied up a storm on the first day of this year. I just found some pictures in my camera - none of which I remember! What a way to start a new year! It's fun having a camera handy...

In the two nights of rock-star life style, I tried two new places - Oola in SF and Rokko in Sunnyvale. Oola was delicious, although quite similar in style to what I make at home - the Papa Bear says that he actually prefers my cooking! That funny Bear! As for Rokko, I'm not sure if we really got the full experience, since practically everything we ordered was sold out! I guess they must have gotten a better turn out than they expected - dwindling stock of ingredients didn't make for a full menu...

Besides my evenings out in town, it's been a very relaxing, quiet time off. All this rain has turned me into a mushroom... I've been adventuring like crazy, abandoning my exercise routine. Oh well, I'll have to go back to a healthier routine when I go back to work tomorrow...

I think I'll kick off the new year with my favorite food right now -
nebasushi

Deliciously oozing natto-mekabu-yamaimo sushi! Oh, how I love that sticky, slimy goo with just enough texture to keep things interesting!

Mmmmm. I think it's time to tear myself away from the computer and head down to Sushi Yoshi...
