Setting sun

There is a conference this week in Tokyo for the 60th birthday of someone who is both a friend (older!) and distinguished; it's a pleasure and an honour to be here. Not all of the organizers are totally efficient, so I've been staying in a couple of different places, including Shibuya. This is full of love hotels and fashionably dressed teenagers, though I don't know who the love hotels are full of. Not me anyway.

Please film yourself doing karaoke and post it.

Actually that would be a bit difficult, charm a lovely girl to film you singing.

It's a hard life but somebody's got to do it...

Lulu being filmed singing is not my kink.

Nurse, Kevin I am wounded by your sarcasm, I suffer for my art you know. Oh did I tell you about eating fugu? I had fugu sashimi which is tasteless (the locals say almost tasteless) except for the lime and soy sauce you dip it in, followed by fugu nabe, a bouillabaisse they make in front of you. That was pretty good. We washed it down with sake infused with fugu fin and ignited. Sake is pretty dull, but this turned it into something like an island malt whisky, fishy and smoky and interesting.

Sounds great, Inky, and I admire the Japanese, kinda, but give me the lurve train any day.

BEAST said...

Fishy whisky sounds vile .Do you get a discount at the Lurve hotel if your on your own ??

inkspot said...

Gadj, how much of my lurve train can you handle big boy?

Beast, I checked that out, no discount but equally you can stuff the room with as many lovelies of any gender as you like and the price stays the same.

Better yet, persude a couple of fashionably dressed teenagers to accompany you to a love hotel and get one to film you with the other.

Doing a karaoke duet, naturally.

For a taste of "fishy whisky", try Talisker single malt from Skye. It has a strong note of phenol and iodine and tends to elicit grunts and wheezes of shock from the uninitiated.

Wordver: Dintness - the quality or stae of being dint.

Inky, right up to the maker's name, fella!

Being somewhat lazy , the thought of having to hunt down lovelies of any gender just to get ones moneys worth would hav me rushing to the nearest Travel Lodge
