Coincidentally, I started feeling vaguely sick (drained of energy, sore throat, headaches, some body aches) on Wednesday or Thursday, and still feel some of the effects. So I'm afraid that I wasn't nearly as good of a host as I had hoped to be. David, Stacy: my apologies.
On Friday, they and Lori went off to Do Stuff, but I stayed home from work and slept most of the day.
Friday night, we went out to Koto Buki with a bunch of people. I'd never been before; I found the sukiyaki very tasty, comparable with the sukiyaki I remember fondly from my family's trip to Japan.
