First off, I spent the late morning cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I don't know how many times I opened and closed the refrigerator door, pulling containers out and stuffing tupperware inside. The number might actually be an important detail to this story because we keep bottles of alcohol on top of the fridge. With all the shifting and moving around and general activity in the vicinity, one of the bottles migrated to the edge. When I went to open the door one last time, you guessed it...
It came crashing down on my head. An entire new bottle of vermouth shattered on my head and then fell to the floor.
Have you ever been suddenly hit over the head with something?
It was the strangest sensation. I can't say that I felt any pain at all really. I was just stunned and then pissed off that I had to clean up that mess and rummage for slivers of glass in my hair. I do have a little welt today. So, the lesson learned is: Don't keep bottle of alcohol on top of the fridge.
Okay, now please excuse me as I take down all the bottles of alcohol from the fridge. Oh never mind, I'll do it later... or maybe never.
The next bit of excitement is that I happened to be looking at my account on You Tube, and I noticed that my video on the Ninja restaurant had some crazy ungodly number of hits (6,800). I thought it had to be a mistake and then I did a little research.
It seems that all these viewers (mostly teenagers) came from Italy and Spain because it was featured on several European websites as well as Asian ones. Here's a list of a few of them that featured it...
Wacky internet world... I am continually amazed at how interconnected we are now... who would have thought my video would appeal to masses of European geeky adolescents?
Finally, I was also surprised recently by my blog friend, Chrissy! She awarded me the lovely blog award, which I am honored to receive. I am supposed to award some of my favorite blogs recently, and I really have too many to whittle down.
I'll just mention three lifestyle and cooking blogs that I've been enjoying reading lately:
Stay tuned for a recap of our Spooky Okinawan tour we took last weekend... you know this island is crawling with ghosts, don't you?
