My Name in Ketchup

Posted on 2006/06/07 16:04:00 (June 2006).

[Tuesday 6th June]
Another entirely crappy day at work. Feeling I really needed to get away, I actually went back to the apartment for a while at lunchtime. I confused my colleagues by continuing to send emails from there, and I even made a phone call to a colleague in the US. It occurred to me how refreshing it might be if I were able to officially work from home once in a while. Refreshing, but probably not massively productive. Having said that, the office is hardly the ideal work environment either at the moment...

Anyhwo, when the day was finally over I returned home feeling rather downtrodden and sorry for myself. Even though Chie got back later than I did, she very kindly offered to cook dinner, perhaps as it was evident I wasn't really in the mood for it. She made yaki soba (Kev: noodles again!), served with an omelette on top. The crowning glory was that she wrote my name - a big "Dr John" - in ketchup on the top. It was so wonderfully sweet, and cheered me up no end, bless her.

She's got a good calligraphy with Ketchup!! Come on Johnny boy, I am sure that things will improve soon. Maybe it's just a crappy patch, maybe it's the slow realization that life in Japan is not good for you... Heads up, and keep working on the lowering chair trick!
