[Wednesday 10th May]
Same sort of thing as the previous thing - I'm not entirely sure how I got signed up for it, but tonight again I was on entertainment duty for our visiting colleagues, albeit this time a slightly different group. As it was entirely up to me to plan the evening, we went on a tour of the only area I know well - Ikebukuro. We started off with nibbles at Rohlan, then went for a main course at Great India, and finished off with a wee dram at Quercus Bar. It's hard to say for sure if these places really suited my guests for the evening, but at least we didn't have to endure lots of aimless wandering as we tried to choose somewhere to go. Well, I did my best.
Maybe you should see if you can get promoted into the "Head of Client Entertainment Management" role? I think you would be very good at it. In fact I would have thought that would actually be almost a full time job in itself and actually be quite a useful role within the organisation. I think you should suggest this to 'the management'

Thanks for the suggestion Kev (and I believe there was even a complement in amongst that too!) - but I'm not totally sure I'm really cut out for it. I find this sort of thing quite stressful to be honest - carrying the responsibility on my shoulders of whether or not other people have a good time...
...so I don't think I'm ready to give up the regular job yet!

Next time, bring them to the Blue Oyster... (I mean, its Japanese counterpart)

I had a greta time with you being a Cicero in Ikebukuro! I am sure that they liked it, especially WATANABE SAN (please brign my regards to him next time)!
Good stuff John!
