you know, when I wrote this, I thought 'I bet this bites me in the ass' I went to Cambodia with a good friend on the weekend, he's still traveling (going all over the place for about 5 weeks). His superawesome Japanese gf stayed behind as she struggles to get a night off work, let alone a week or five. Cos she works the way she does, she kinda has no friends, which sucks, cos she is really one of the coolest people we know. Anyhow, last night she got the night off and called me and my best friend out for dinner (cos she really knows very few ppl other than her bf's friends). I go meet her, Frenchy is stuck in the studio (my bestie is a music producer from France) so have dinner with her at a Jap hotpot place. She gets sulky cos I won't drink and she wants to 'kampai' cos this is the first night she has had off work all year, she signed her biggest ever contract that morning, and finally resolved some legal issues that had been plaguing her company. She's so sweet and also kinda down at the moment that you can't really say no to her, so I order a beer. I do my best to not drink it (probably had a quarter of it, and kept filling her glass up from my bottle) but still...I broke No Drinking Rule. Fail 1. She orders for us in Japanese, I look up at a table full of fried chicken. I ate a bit...probably like 3 nuggets worth. Dammit. Fail 2. The rest was super healthy - steamed pork/chicken/vegetables. Finish dinner, her and I head over to meet Frenchy for frozen yogurt. Had a small non-fat blended with fruit, so at least I wasn't throwing chocolate chips on there, but still: Fail 3. Dammit. At least I talked her into kancho-ing Frenchy. Plus today (Thurs) I can't work out...client event where I am opening a restaurant and a bar. Will be very hard to duck food and alcohol and play host on this one....
