Girls Night Out!

The girls from the book club and I went out last night to see Memoirs of a Geisha as we had read the book a few months ago. Before the movie however, we went out for Japanese food. Some of the girls were a little afraid that we would be dining on raw fish but they were in for a treat. We ate and ate of the most sumptious food imaginable. One of the girls however thought that the wasabi sauce was avacado so scooped it up and put it in her mouth in one go. She was in AGONY!!!! She felt the burning all through her head and she expected to see flames coming out of her ears. She survived and was eventually able to continue on. So many different flavours, all prepared different ways. It was a real experience.

The movie itself was great, not following the book completely but that was really no surprise. It didn't really portray some things as much as the book had but it still was amazing.

Of course, a bunch of girls can't just go home so we went out for dessert. After figuring out what we would each have and being brought desserts big enough to feed a family we enjoyed much laughter as we picked on the poor waiter. He humoured us in fine form, and didn't seem any worse for wear when we left.

At the end we were all ready to crash as most of us are early to bedders. We made it home and I crawled into my cozy bed and fell asleep in minutes. I still feel full this morning, maybe I won't eat today!

I love Japanese food, not the hardcore sushi though. I feel for the girl who ate the wasabi. One time I took in more than I can handle. Sounds like a fun night out with the girls.

What a nice idea with the whole Japanese theme. An evening with the girls can be just so silly and you can get rid of all that stress. I always feel like a kid again.

Glad to hear the movie was good. I might go see it!
