SANTA CATS BROUGHT YUKO A PRESENT
This is the second time the cats have done this - apparently Yuko's old room is their favorite place to barf. Gross.
We're in NYC right now! We spent a couple of hours doing the rounds of our favorite stores. Yuko got a brush pen from Kinokuniya, and then we picked up a used copy of Jeff Smith's Shazam! from Book-Off (which I read when we got home - totally charming despite the superhero nonsense, and charming in the way only Jeff Smith can write). Cafe Zaiya is right next door, which is where we grabbed some food ... we split a bento box with rice, cabbage, pickled seaweed salad and curry croquettes (super good!) out in front of the Bryant Park library. There's some ume onigiri in the fridge for tomorrow, although I will probably fold and have one tonight.
Sorry, I got carried away ... good food will do that.
ADDENDUM: WILLPOWER IS FOR CHUMPS AND ONIGIRI IS DELICIOUS
