Five Thing Friday

1. Today at lunch, my coworkers and I went to our fave teppanyaki cook table restaurant, Memories of Japan.

I think I love those places the most because you are constantly eating. They bring you miso soup and salad, and that lasted until our maki roll appetizer arrived. And while you’re eating your starters the chef cooks your main meal on the table in front of you.

I love a good onion volcano.

We wished for a fun chef, and he definitely delivered. He actually almost delivered a bit too much. He talked the entire time he was cooking, so it was difficult to have a conversation, since he was mostly joining in on ours. But it was funny.

At one point he was juggling eggs (one-handed) and he was going on about what came first, the chicken or the egg, and started hysterically laughing. Like, snorting laughing. He was a big fan of cheesy jokes (his own).

We all had a hard time understanding him actually, so I was just laughing and nodding mostly. But I guess I once laughed at the wrong time, because he pointed at me and said “No, not funny!”

But then started laughing hysterically himself.

Anyway, lunch was delicious.

I got the salmon, shrimp, and chicken, which came with vegetables and rice. All for 10 dolla! Pretty sweet deal. I love those places.

2. This may be the funniest animated gif I have ever seen.

I can’t watch it and not die of laughter. It gets me every single time. That black cats eyes…oh man. I was thinking about it when I was driving home from work today and I started killing myself laughing in my car.

I think what makes it so funny for me is that those two cats look like my cats, and that looks like something they would do. Winnie will be cleaning herself all innocently on our bed, and Dexter will just be creepily watching her. That even looks like our bed and bedroom.

When I showed it to Andrew, he was like “Wait, aren’t those our cats? Is that not Winnie and Dexter?”

Maybe it is.

3. The Woman In Black officially comes out today. Have you guys seen the movie poster?

Remember when my friend Lisa and I saw the premiere (in the same theatre as Daniel Radcliffe, what!) last week and we took a picture in front of the movie poster?

Well after closer inspection…

Freaky-deaky. I did not manipulate that photo.

4. I have been noticing lately that I have been getting a lot of views on my blog from people googling “Alligator Arms”. I was curious to see what came up when you searched for that, so I did it myself.

And I noticed the first picture that comes up in images is the one I made of my boss with alligator arms. So if you search alligator arms, there is my boss. With little tiny alligator arms.

I am thankful that I put that smiley on his face. I knew it was a good call.

Anyway, today I went into my boss’s office and instructed him to google “alligator arms”. He looked at the pictures for a moment before saying “Wait…is that me?” and then laughing.

I told him that I would take the picture down if he wanted, because I could understand feeling uncomfortable having a google image of yourself associated with alligator arms (even if you can’t tell who it is).

And then he said what every employee wants to hear after they put a picture of their boss on the internet with alligator arms: “Nah, I don’t mind. You can leave it up.”

Well alrighty then. I have the coolest boss in the world (he did see the original post, and was cool with it then).

5. This weekend is hibernation and get stuff done around the house weekend! I have been going out a lot lately, so I’m excited to have a more low-key time at home. I have had three girls nights over the past two weekends.

A couple Saturday’s ago I hung out with my friend Ashley, and I was really excited to see her because we haven’t gone out together in years!

She invited a bunch of her friends out with us, and I had never met them before, but I immediately loved them!

We had a really fun night at Ashley’s local bar. It was a small-town bar, which I loved. I much prefer those than going to a club. It’s usually more funny. Good times for sure.

And then last weekend my friend Dawn had a girls night in (no pics), and on Saturday I went out to a pub with my friends Lisa and Sherrie.

Also fun times.

But after two pretty jam-packed weekends, I’m pretty excited to have nothing big on the agenda this weekend. Leisure time!

Oh I actually have a sixth thing…

I am OBSESSED with this song right now.

I love the 80s Sting/The Police vibe that is going on. I can’t get enough of it.

And with that, I bid you adieu!

  1. Love love love that song. So much.

  2. What’s the difference between Tapanyaki and Hibachi? Looks the same to me: http://thealmostrunner.blogspot.com/2011/07/your-text-here.html Anyways, I LOVE IT.

  3. One time I went to a teppanyaki place and the guy put his hand down on the grill by accident. It was the craziest thing ever! He tried to play it off like it wasn’t so bad, but eventually he had to leave and another dude had to take over. I think of that every time that I go to one of those places and how much that would h.u.r.t!
    Loving that song, heard it the first time the other day and it stuck with me for a while….

  4. Have a very nice and relaxing weekend 🙂

    Oh, and I’m totally with you on the volcano onion front, but I think I’m a bigger fan of the giant heart-shaped fried rice pile.

  5. SUCH a great song. This cover is pretty awesome too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M

  6. Hahahaha omg that cat gif…so funny!! And I love that people would be searching alligator arms in the first place hehe. Hope you have a great and relaxing weekend Linds!

  7. lol!! the cat gif made me laugh so hard. It DOES look like your cats! Mowzers stalks our feet like that. And invisible items in the air.
    I can’t believe your picture of Alligator Arms comes up first in Google Images!! ahaha awesome!

  8. Aligator arms, oh my. I have been getting super weird search terms too. I get soo many about Kim Kardashian, it’s strange. I think I mentioned her once like 6 months ago. That cat is insane. I would like to meet the people responsible for making these clips. Do they have other jobs?

    • I don’t think I have ever mentioned Kim Kardashian, so I have never had a search term involving her…but I hear ya – my search terms have been super weird lately.
      I want to learn how to make those kind of clips! I think when people find out I have a blog they think the same thing about me, like I have too much time on my hands 😉

  9. I still cannot get over the fact that you look like Kate Hudson only more gorgeous.

    Ok, thats enough ass kissing from my end.

    I love how I kind of new all this because I follow you on instagram. I’m very picky about who I follow on Instagram because I have social media ADD so feel special!

    Hee, hee. Ok, now I need to go download that song.

  10. LOVE that song right now! The guys voice reminds me of Peter Gabriel which makes it all the better. And holy great deal for lunch Batman! I love hibachi places like that for the same reason–non stop food!

    Um, your picture of you two in front of the movie poster is freaking me out. I was thinking of going to see the movie but now, I don’t think so.

  11. It looks like the black cat might have seen whatever the kids in the poster saw! Too funny!

  12. Lots of pretty, smiling happy faces in those closing pics!

  13. That Goyte song – I cannot get past that guy’s teeth. I keep STARING at them. I have a friend who lives in Germany, and he said that’s the #1 song there now.
    And look at you all being a nice employee and telling your boss about that. I wouldn’t have said anything. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe.
    Why yes, I am catching up on your blog and leaving a million comments.
