Today is the first day I've had off since my last post and Brian has to work every day until we leave for vacation, which leaves me to plan and get everything together. I went down to the World Trade Center to exchange some currency, only to learn that apparently I need to order Argentinian pesos and they do not exchange Uruguayan pesos. Have to go back next Tuesday. I had sushi at Toshi in Little Tokyo downtown after and they had the freshest toro and hamachi. Like, just cut off the fish fresh, which was nice. We then went to Woori market, which is my go-to store other than Trader Joe's and Albertson's since they usually have cheaper produce and today they had live Dungeness crabs for $5.99 per pound. I bought one crab and am waiting for the cat to take interest in it. I just put both in the bathtub together.
Brian's brother bought a cat last year. He paid about $1000 for a Maine Coon from some people that deal in Main Coones. Initially he was going to name it "Kevin", which is a great name for an expensive cat. Eventually they went with 'Gus' as in Augustus which is part of that cat's heritage, blah blah. The picture above is of Kevin at about 20 lbs. They suspect he'll grow to be about 28-30 lbs, which makes me happy for obvious reasons. I held that cat and it is really soft and massive...it is also fairly docile which leads me to believe it will be really easy to steal and turn into a pillow. Thought I'd leave you with that for now. I also love and miss you.
