Alvinisms 201, 23rd in Japan

"May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility."

Did you know: The Neanderthal's brain was bigger than yours is.

Thought of the day: Oh wow. So This week I took two overtimes so I am beyond stoked that my weekend has started. But lemme tell you the best part. So I've been in Japan for over a month; drank w/ locals, went to the best arcade, visited Nara, visited Kyoto, met the coolest people, but nothing compares to what happened to me on Sunday.

As you know I am a food freak. My coworker Grant, (age 50ish), invited me, Rob, Brooke, and Mike for dinner and beers at his house. Oh yeah I forgot to mention that Grant has been married to a Japanese woman for 12 years and she makes the dankest food yo!!! Oh my God! I know Kobe beef is the best meal I've ever had in my life, but the okonomiaki and the yakisoba this woman made was amazing. I mean, who has ever had a Japanese home cooked meal cooked right in front them in a 3 story Japanese house in Japan!!! You know how you pay a grip for just the atmosphere of a restaurant? Well, then this friggin takes the cake, plus it was free!!! My stay here in Japan is now completely complete to the completenesses of completion. I would trade in Kyoto for another meal like that. Good thing Grant said we'll do it again! Aight, I know ya'll will have a hard time trying to imagine what the food tasted like or what it was like to eat like that so Imma just stop right there. Happy boy! Peace. Love. Faith.

My routine consists of studying Japanese on the way to work and the reading another book on the way back. I finished this book about the life of Bobby Fischer. The dude is straight trippin.

Mitch Albom's latest book for one more day is really good. I almost cried. If you haven't read Tuesdays With Morrie or The Five People You Meet In Heaven, you're missing out. These books will change your life. Honestly. The woman I wrote about in an earlier Alvinism should defs have a story w/ Albom, she's amazing as well. Thank you Preezy for sending me the book!
