10/28/2004: "Night of lunar eclipse"
Another busy day, trying to catch up with everything, only to be interrupted by 3:30pm with my Japanese boys Komuro san and Ikko san showing up with two gigantic bottles of wine. We emptied one before the evening dinner rush began. Komuro san insisted that he helped with the dishes, so I let him. It was another hectic night, gyoza to be wrapped, croquettes to be breaded, and Masao was out for deliveries most of the night. I wanted to catch a glimpse of lunar eclipse, but by the time I closed up and stepped out onto Delancey Street, the sky was all cloudy and the moon was nowhere to be found. All well. Such is life sometimes. I consoled myself with a milkshake at Baskin Robbins.
