Dinner at a Japanese Izakaya (Koyoi) with friends. Oh, izakayas, how I've missed you! Check it out:
My husband with a huge bottle of beer!
Me with Shochu!
Cashisu Orenji! Okonomiyaki (below)! Yaki nasu!
I got to shout sumimansen too! Ah, how I've missed you Japan!
While the G20 nonesense (I'm looking at both of you protesters and police. There was a whole lot of bad behaviour on both sides), we looked after our friends' cat, Sherlock. You can tell how much he loved us by this picture:
Is that the red light from the laser pointer I see in the distance? Must DESTROY!
We also hit up the cottage for some old fashion R&R. And by that I mean the traditional Eat/Sleep/Read/Swim (and kayak). I stuck around in O-Town for a while, got together with some friends for dinnger (where I promptly left my sunglasses behind), and then took the train back to Toronto. When I got back (Phil came back alone first), we hit up a TFC football game in the blistering heat.
I brought a Very Large Hat with me and sat in the shade cast by my own head. I think that's pretty awesome.
Okay. So. Yeah. I did look like a dork.
But I didn't get burned! And the guy who didn't bring a hat (*cough**cough*Phil*cough*) totally did. So there.
Other highlights included: finding an air conditioner! Installing the air conditioner! Swearing at the air conditioner! Apologizing to it because the apartment is gloriously cool now!
