My ex-bosses at Interscope took me to a cool restaurant yesterday. Koi on La Cienega (730 N. La Cienega - between Melrose and Santa Monica). Their food was excellent! I loved Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice and Baked Crab Roll. I really like California influenced Japanese food. I like the creativity of it, and it's usually very tasty. Plus, it's like, I can eat really good authentic Japanese food when I go home, so why not eat something different while I'm in LA?

I spent an unusually busy day at work yesterday, but it looks like today is going to be slow as hell again... I can feel it..

Whole Foods on 3rd & Fairfax: I'm in Love. I went there yesterday and loved everything about it. I'm gonna do all my grocery shopping there from now on. It reminds me of a grocery store that I used to always go to in Japan.

Wednesday Night: It was a lot of fun. Josh was in town to visit Peter, so we went to eat Yakiniku at Manpuku. Zoltan joined us there too, so it was like ASCA reunion, bitching about things that happened when we were involved in that organization. You know, I will never forget that party planner and the ridiculous amount of food we had. It's impossible to erase that from my memory, guys. And Josh, you have to come back sometime soon!!

I hate myself for being such a perfectionist. I get so stressed out because of my obession with the details. I worry about things way way too much. I get really pissed off when people, such as my new apartment manager, doesn't live up to my expectations. I wish I could be more easy going and not care as much!!! But I don't know how... Well, I guess it's good and bad. Everywhere I have worked, my bosses were very satisfied with my work. I don't really get screwed because I pay attention to things.

One of my good friends, Ken, is leaving LA and going back to Japan at the end of this month.. :( The news was rather surprising cuz nobody was expecting it. We all knew he would be going back eventually because he works for a Japanese company. Man, I hate to see a friend leaving... It's so sad!!! He's such a fun-loving, cool guy!!! I will definitely miss you, Ken!

But on a brighter side, My other good friend Takako has just moved here with her husband. And I just heard from her now and they are expecting a little one! Wow. Congratulations Takako!! Although I really cannot see you being a mom... hahaha. But I think I'll get used to that idea soon!

It's been a while since I posted anything here... Yes, the moving is done (though there are so many boxes to be unpacked). I am so fucking exhausted. I just want to feel normal again. For the last two weeks or so, I haven't felt normal because I was so sick, and then had to deal with the moving bullshit for the last several days while trying to recover from cold. I don't want to move for a loooong time. So I hope I will like the new apartment. It was such a pain in the ass to move. Bill was so pissed because I had so much shit to pack and we had to stay up all night on Friday to get the packing done.

Work is not too bad today, I guess. I haven't had an access to a computer all weekend, so it was cool to come in here and check my email and post something on my blog. I wanna go to yoga so bad, I just need to get rid of this cold completely!

Uncovered: The Whole Truth about the Iraq War

This is a new documentary film coming out. It goes into details about how Bush lied to Americans to go to war in Iraq. There is no way we should keep this moron in the office for four more fucking years!
Wish it was Sunday~~ or better yet, Saturday.

But I'm not particularly looking forward to this weekend, because I have to move. Yes, I am finally getting out of the world's most boring downtown, LA downtown that is, and moving to Miracle Mile. So I'm excited about that part, but I'm definitely not excited about packing and unpacking. Have I ever mentioned that I have ridiculous amount of shit in my house? I have no idea how it has all accumulated.

Anyway.. what's up with the weather??? Isn't it too cold for Los Angeles?? I had to dig into my winter clothes which I haven't touched since like January this morning. I wore my normal clothes yesterday and was freezing my ass off. Whatever happened to the warm paradise everyone wants to live in!

Recently, I went to 2 interviews, both for a job in Entertainment PR. I really hope I get those positions. But I have realized again that I suck at interviews. And I think it's because, I persoanally hate overachievers who wouldn't shut up about how great they are, so I tend not to tell too much. But I guess I'm supposed to rave about myself during job interviews. I need to be more aggressive about things.

I had yet another very lame Halloween night - I was sick sleeping at home. But now that I think about it, I've never had a real "blast" on Halloween night. I think I went out every year except for one, but every year it was "ok." But this year, I was kinda glad that I wasn't planning on anything, because it rained after all, and I HATE going out in rain. I usually refuse to leave the house when it's raining out.

Kill Bill - finally saw it, but it didn't live up to my expectation. It was funny and original, and the music was great, but I didn't find Lucy Liu and Uma Thurman talking in very awkward Japanese entertaining. I guess I was expecting something more from the film. But I do want to see the second.

I'm sooooo bored! I'm so sick that I can't really do anything! I haven't done yoga in more than a week.... Well, actually I do have tons of shit I need to do, but it's just that I don't want to do any of them.
