By 72. In English, I'll Be Here! It's one of the theme songs to the Jdrama, Untouchable. I love the series, and this really set the mood for it. It's somewhat haunting, hopeful, yet sad, and beautiful. I didn't see the artist's music video until much later, but it's cool too. Lots of metaphors, and the wolf and scenery are beautiful also.
It's starting to get really cold again.It was forecasted for later in the week, but it's snowing!I still haven't gotten the info (itinerary, emergency numbers, flight info, packing list, etc.) for my trip to Israel. If I don't get an email by the afternoon, I will email or call them today.It's getting ridiculous. We only have 16 days left.I also looked on FB to see if our group has been made yet. It hasn't. So, it's not just me.I saw a couple of other groups that are up, but they leave earlier than we do. It's interesting to glance at what they're saying or asking. Gives me a chance to figure out what to ask them when it's up.Mom brought up that it might be easier if I check my luggage at SeaTac airport and just send it directly to Ben Gurion airport. But, the thing is, I think we may have to pick it up at JFK and send it with the group's luggage. I don't know.I'll ask when it's up. Also, there's a couple of questions about the 'payoneer' card we're using.
We got a wall charger for my mp3 player. Or, really anything that uses a USB port to charge. I can use that on my trip.I kind of need my tunes. I'll definitely need them on the plane. It's a 15-17 hour plane trip.Not including the one from SeaTac to JFK.
I made chicken tikka masala, with a side of green beans, for Shabbat dinner. The sauce was from a can, so it wasn't like I made it from scratch. But, it was good, quick, and easy.We went to Casa Luna for dinner yesterday. Haven't gone in so long. They make a lot of things from scratch (salsa, chips, tortillas, etc.), so it's good most of the time. I got a Mexican pizza. I love their's. Lots of beans, cheese, ground beef, tomatoes, a good fried tortilla, and really good sauce. Saying it's a pizza, just sounds funny to me.But, it's really good.Mom got their signature burrito. I thought it would be like a normal burrito. It was huge! Maybe next time I'll try it. I won't be able to finish it, but it looked good too. Mom ate maybe half of hers. That's ok, I couldn't finish mine either. Dad got some chicken mole. I love mole, so that looked tasty too.
I started another drama to replace Joker, called Orthros no Inu. (Funny, because one of the main actors was in Joker, too.) It's very interesting so far. I thought it would be too hokey or a flop or something. Ryuzaki Shinji possesses a 'G-d Hand', but seems to be an evil manipulative person. The hand can heal wounds and illnesses. Aoi Ryosuke possesses a 'Demon's Hand', but he's got a kind and almost angelic personality. His hand can kill a person with a single touch. They end up meeting with the help of detective Hasebe Nagisa. Aoi ends up helping Ryuzaki escape from prison. Only later realizing he was tricked. A very interesting beginning, and kind of cool. Orthros, by the way, is a 2-headed dog in Greek mythology. He was a 'brother' to Cerberus. Kind of cool.
Went to services on Saturday!Had a pretty good turn out. The Rabbi was late, because as soon as he got off the ferry, he ran out of gas.So, our cantor led the very beginning of it. The parsha was about Moses asking Pharaoh to 'let my people go'. It's a very interesting one. At the end, they let the kids from the school come in for kiddush. Years ago we used to have someone who made a chocolate chip and powdered sugar dusted challah for the oneg. She made some this time. It was so good!
