I don't know what's stranger...  
...the fact that we just happen to plan our NYC trip the weekend of this --- or the fact that I'm seriously thinking about buying tickets to it. :P I'm just not too sure that I'm ready to know that much about my favorite Broadway performers...

Tomorrow night is Susan's wedding rehearsal. :) Her wedding party is very small - it's just me and the Best Man (and her two nieces, who are the flower girls). :) I'm really interested in seeing her wedding because she's the first person that I've ever known to get married in the traditional Japanese kimono with the full make-up and headdress (she'll change to her lavendar dress for the reception). :) Because the headdress is so heavy, she told me it was my job to make sure that if I saw her tipping that I'd give her a little nudge to make sure she doesn't fall down. ;)

And I've been trying to be good about watching what I eat (so I can fit into the dress a little better) - and I can't believe I gave up the opportunity to eat 99 cent sushi plates at Kuru Kuru this week. :( It's a promotion they're having where anything you pick costs only 99 cents, provided that you eat it within a half an hour. That's a dream come true for me (since some sushi plates can run up to $5!) I think Mark & I are going to go there on Sunday (the last day of the promotion) because that'll be AFTER Susan's wedding. ;)

Yay! :) Yup, the after Saturday being the key phrase. ;) I'm really looking forward to it!! :)

Oh my goodness! That wonderful price for sushi! Aside from the fact that you have to drive for an hour to get it here (well, this is Kentucky -- wink!). I would probably be completely ODing right now . . .

It's a fantastic price! :) Here we must have sushi places on every corner, but because I have an aversion to raw fish, I like the places that have a wide selection of sushi. Kuru Kuru is great because the selection is usually REALLY good. :)

What you said about raw fish reminds me of one of my sister's adventures. When she was just out of school, she saved diligently to visit a friend who was teaching English in a little town in Japan. She loved the trip, but it hadn't occurred to her before she left that she didn't like seafood, and what that meant in a small town was that there wasn't going to be much she would enjoy eating for a week! So many kind people from the town brought her all sorts of food and gifts while she was there, and she was determined not to be a "bad American," so she ate everything offered, but she did lose several pounds on the trip. She often points to those incidents as a cross-cultural learning experience for her.

Wasn't Chris Sieber on a TV show on ABC recently? And if so, I was wondering why I had seen his face before.

99 cent sushi, I'd try it then. :)

Yes he was! :) "It's All Relative" was sadly canceled just as I started to remember to watch it. :(

And sushi is usually so expensive here that I'd jump at the chance to eat 99 cent sushi any time (except before Susan's wedding...) ;)

I bet Susan's traditional Japanese wedding attire will be gorgeous!

I can't wait for Saturday!! :D And I'll be sure to post pictures - I've never seen a traditional Japanese wedding before! :)

will you post pictures? I'm most curious to see how y'all look, based on your descriptions. I'm sure it's going to be a beautiful wedding. :) and I thoroughly encourage you to have lots of sushi afterwards! it's actually quite healthy eating, so you don't have to feel too guilty! (as you may have seen from my journal, I'm all about enjoying yourself when you eat! ;)
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on June 11th, 2004 08:54 am (UTC)
I will definitely post pictures of Susan's wedding! :) Since this is my first traditional Japanese wedding, I really have no idea of what to expect either - it's pretty new to me too. :) But it should be very nice! :)

And I haven't been "dieting" so much as just watching what I've been eating. ;)
