September 7th, after work, my husband and I went to an Indian Restaurant. Tandoori chicken, shishi kebob, two kinds of curry, and Naan put me in a very good mood. After that, we went to the new ice cream shop in Parco Department store. Parco Department store opened two weeks ago in Sendai. Cold Stone Creamery is on the first floor of Parco and has had long lines since its opening. We had an hour to kill before the movie, so we joined the other fifty people in line and waited patiently. We were entertained periodically by the Zippity Doo Daa song sung by the shop employees. My one, small scoop of ice cream was 480 yen (4.50 USD).
After that we headed for the movie. It is a Japanese Movie, グーグーだって猫である (Gou Gou datte Neko de Aru). After the java intro finishes, you can choose the "watch trailer" button at the bottom of the page. The story evolves around Kyoko Koizumi's character, manga artist, Asako. The story is based loosely on a book by Yumiko Oshima. I love cats and loved this movie. I cried almost the entire movie. There is much that paralleled my own life.
