Okay so most people would think "so what, big deal. I have dates all the time." Since I am not doing online dating my options are very, very limited. I did not have a single date in '06 and I believe I didn't in '05 either. Could it be possible I didn't have one in '04 either? What the hell? This could give a woman a complex or something.
Let's see I have been in Toronto for less than two month and I have had more dates here than the last 3 maybe 4 years in Los Angeles. I wrote the following on New Year's day as one of my resolutions for '07:
"Go on at least one proper date. Not sure how I will accomplish this goal but I figured it wouldn't hurt to say it out loud. I am so ovah this "strike". My mom asked my brother in law during the holiday about fixing me up with one of his friends. Between my hairstyle and my single status she is very concerned about me."
FH man and I went to Hiro's on King for lunch. Hiro Yoshida is considered one of the best sushi chef's in Toronto. FH loves to eat and is a lot more adventurous than I. He ordered the Omakase style menu. Hiro makes several courses and you eat what he makes for you, including monkfish liver (FH insisted I try some of his and it was was very good). I ordered from the menu, included a couple dishes FH recommended. Of course he knows Hiro. I wish someone had told me the wasabi is put in the sushi, not on the side like most places I've been to in L.A. My eyes were watering. At one point I grabbed FH's arm for support. It felt like I had snorted the wasabi. haha
We had sake and talked for hours. The food was so delicious. When the bill came I reached for my wallet but homeslice whipped a card before I could even see the check. We might stop by a party tonight.
After lunch I went to set. I had to sit outside all night because our location (a restaurant) was too tight for the video monitors. We wrapped the indoor location at 2:00 a.m. then I was in a van following a camera rigged car for the next three hours as we drove up and down Lakeshore Blvd. By the time I got dropped off at base camp and drove home it was almost 6 in the morning. I tried to sleep in, still work up early and just got back from the gym. If I am to stay up at all tonight I will have to take a nap or something this afternoon,
