Finally, my main course arrived, albeit short two pieces of yellowtail sushi. I finished the plate in record time--it was quite fresh and well-put-together, which is almost all sushi has to be. Then various members of the staff kept trying to bring me an entire plate of yellowtail sushi. Apparently, the waiter had treated my order as including a "yellowtail appetizer", which would have fed several sharks for days. I demurred about the sampler, mentioned that I only ordered two pieces, and then asked for my check. The waiter, more than a bit abashed by what he knew was poor sushi chef timing, proceeded to box the unwanted yellowtail for free. I appreciated his kindness, and told him so, and increased my tip somewhat.
When I finally got home, after 10:30 p.m., between errand and sushi, my wife and I watched the weather.
The storm's turn east likely rules out all but mild thunderstorm potential for our city. We watched silly newsfolk trying to figure out things to say other than "it's raining" and "those sparks are another transformer blowing out".
I scrubbed a trip to Arkansas this weekend, which I wanted very much to make, due to work things. I spent my "keyed up" time doing remixes of samples posted by people at ccmixter.org, after a very unspectacular run of on-line blitz chess. I did a remix I felt good enough about to post at ccmixter.org, after disposing of many earlier drafts of earlier remixes. It's a lot less like my usual dark ambience, and is instead a remix of someone's really great original mix of a jazzy pop song. So it's a remix of a mix so good that it didn't need remixing. But I enjoyed remixing it anyway. It's fun to morph songs about, as shown in the remix I did, Brave and Deep , which varies a fair bit from the source material, wtihout being untrue to it.
But now I must take my spare adrenaline, and use it to seek out sleep.
