it's june!

It seems like some of you folks are pining for an update. Fear not, my adoring fans, I'll not leave you stranded in the dark world that is without moi! (Sometimes, I just don't feel like updating, though, so ha! Neener, neener!)

I finished Wind-Up Bird Chronicle a few days ago, and I thought it enjoyable. Murakami writes like he's sneakily growing a tree; and as it grows, he sneaks around, stringing the branches together. Now, I said I was gonna move on to Heartbreaking Work, but I've been side-tracked by Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene--such fas-kin-ating ideas! I promise, I'll do Heartbreaking Work next!

Thursday night, I visited an interesting venue in San Francisco known as Shanghai 1930. The first thing I see when I step into the door is a big red carpet leading me down into this underground hide-out of a restaurant/bar. I felt so sneaky just being there! That aside (well, not that that's necessarily a bad thing :P), the place is tre cool: blue backlit bar, live jazz band playing, extremely classy decor, and just overall stylin' atmosphere. Sweet!

And a few doors down is another classy place, Ozumo. This place has a huge sushi bar--with a view of the bay! The whole place is done in Nihon-style, and the seats against one side of the wall near the bar has pillows and seating so you can fold your legs up (and have some sake!). More sweetness!
