Teriyaki chicken and Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars—an excellent combination which I enjoyed last night at my parents’ house. I try to make it over there about once a week; it’s my duty as a son, and fortunately, I genuinely enjoy their company. So we ate and watched Twinkle, Twinkle, which is a Jackie Chan film in the same sense that Raiders of the Lost Ark is a John Rhys-Davies film. Jackie’s in it, and he has a few scenes (including an amazing fight in a Pepsi warehouse), but he’s in no sense the star. It’s an ensemble movie, mostly starring the Seven Fortunes and Sammo Hung. But it was definitely fun, worth watching.

Today I feel much like I did yesterday: like a wrung-out dishrag. The stress (!) of the first half of the week has shifted my brain into second gear. I can work, and talk, and be normal, but my creativity fuel level is near empty.

Which means one thing: Lots and lots of anime.
