Of Japanese Food, Nanowrimo, and Distractions

Tempura Shrimp!


The above image is what I am craving at the moment. I just adore Japanese food. My weak spots are  tuna sashimi, sashimi, softshell crab, and unagi on rice. If I can only enjoy one type of cuisine my entire life, it would be Japanese. The best Japanese food I’ve had in the last five years had to be in Ottawa and in Niagara Falls. Oddly enough, I’ve been to several in the GTA but nothing of the above calibre. If you are a gourmand of Japanese food, avoid buffets. It’s great to gorge and all but the quality in all-you-can-eats are lacking. I recently went to an AYCE called the Dragon Pearl in North York. The food was mediocre and the sashimi inedible. I’m getting older. My stomach is shrinking. It’s time to start a quality control process for what goes in it.

The end is near for Nanowrimo. I’ve hit 30K and there is 20K left to go. It’rs been really difficult trying to to get it done. This means I’m itching to sew like crazy in December.  I’ve always had creative ADHD. I just can’t stick to one thing and it’s very difficult for me to just focus on that one thing. I need to have other projects on the go. Focusing on one thing means I can get it done faster as opposed to having three things on the go. For some reason, I can’t though. Nanowrimo is testing my willpower and focus. I want to get this novel done and I know it’s turning out better than I hoped.

In the meantime, I’ve been distracted with Skyrim. Elder Scrolls v: Skyrim is an epic RPG. I’m totally hooked. It has an open gameplay which I adore. I spend hours dungeon crawling and exploring before I even pursue any quests. After a big hiccup when I loaded the game and it froze, it’s been fairly smooth sailing since. It will keep me plenty busy for a while.

I’m also distracted by my upcoming gallery exhibition. This is the first official one I’ve ever had. It is for my beading embroidery work. Having a gallery exhibit has always been a dream of mine and it’s coming true! It will be at the Aboveground Art Store in downtown Toronto located near OCAD and the AGO. OCAD is the Ontario College of Art and Design. I applied to this school and got in. I really wish I had gone there. This is one of my biggest regrets. AGO is the Art Gallery of Ontario. The date is set for Dec 12-Jan12th. I’m dropping off my artwork on Dec 7th. Things are starting to move. If everything goes well, this gallery showing will lead to more opportunities. I have an art store gift certificate on the way for Christmas and I know exactly what to get! I want to make paintings again.

Yes, I am incredibly busy but also incredibly happy.
