I have been waylaid by the post Halloween plague. Okay so it is a mere cold, but it has caused much listlessness and lethargy. Sleeping is about the extent of what I have wanted to do the past two days. But tonight, in an effort to right my sleep schedule (didnt want to wake up at 5am again due to sleeping the 24 hours before), I attempted to stay up past 6pm.
Gaming seemed like way too much effort, as did anything requiring thinking at all, so I tuned into Netflix. Thankfully they give out handy suggestions and I took them up on one of them.
“Jiro Dreams of Sushi” was my first pick. I thought it was a comedy, because the title is goofy and frankly with Japanese movies you never can tell. Turns out its a documentary about one of the most celebrated sushi chefs in Japan. And it is incredible. Not only is this movie a wonderful cornucopia of delicious looking sushi, but it creates a surprisingly insightful picture of Japanese culture through the love of sushi. This was a true find and makes me want to visit Japan again.
Sadly, Jiro was quite short, so I hunted around for something else to watch and found that Netflix has season six of Psych! As a huge fan of the show, I couldn’t help but watch four episodes in a row.
This might have been the best night of TV I have watched in recent memory, dare I say a miracle cure for the Halloween Plague?! I laughed, I cried, I yearned for Japan, what more could a girl want.
