My girlfriend's kids are out of town for the next couple of weeks, which means a few things for us. For one, things will be alot more quiet around here. Secondly, it means we get the TV all to ourselves. And thirdly, well, it will be pretty much the same, just less messy.
We did decide to spend our first kid free night having some fun out on the town. As luck would have it, that night was also our 3 month anniversary. Aww. So, when Candy got off of work we went out for dinner at Kyoto, because I have been craving sushi. We split a veggie plate and some vegetable tempura.
From the top left- fried tofu roll, celery with sesame seeds, vegetable tempura roll, green bean roll.
The vegetable tempura- a huge slice of yam, yellow squash, zucchini, and a single broccoli floret.
When I told the waiter I'm vegan, he asked me to specify exactly what vegan was "so I can make it clear to the chef." I knew it would be slim pickings after that. Thankfully, it was all pretty good, and somewhat satisfied my sushi craving. I say somewhat because I know I can make better, and have. We plan to have a Japanese themed party soon, and I will be making sushi out the wazoo. Mmm, sushi!
The yay part is this: I got the job at Wheatsville!! YAY! I start my training next week, and then I will be part time for a while after Thanksgiving, becoming full time eventually. I'm going to try to keep my other job, since the holidays are coming up and I could use some extra money. Also, I'm still toying with the idea of starting school next year, so extra money in the bank would help. I can't wait to start my training. I think the thing I look forward to the most about the job (besides the coolness, the people, and great benefits) is the "freebox"- leftover goods from all departments of the store, free for the taking for employees. Woop!
