Thanksgiving being my favorite of American national holidays, I would have liked to find somewhere to have Thanksgiving dinner tonight, but emails went unanswered, so I made pancakes and watched Simpsons DVDs while waiting for Kamakura Cable to set up my internet and cable television. For “Thanksgiving” dinner I made vegetable udon, salmon, and rice. At least I had the day off, it being Japan’s Labor Thanksgiving Day.
The nicest thing about being in my own apartment — apart from living in Kamakura, which is truly amazing — is cooking for myself again after a long hiatus. There’s something therapeutic about coming home at the end of a long day and making a meal with your own hands.
In any case, believe it or not, having had the cable installed I’m all set up now. Posting will now be on a more regular schedule.
