Can you really do this kinda thing...?
Yesterday was "I'm your c**t" girl's final day at the consultant company since she's quitting to move on to bigger and better things, leaving Luke, The Boy, Captain Britain and the other people behind. So she's joining me in the group of graduates from the company. Yesterday the group threw together an improvised informal farewell party to send her off properly and I joined in in the festivities.
The venue chosen was particularly interesting, as a conneiseur of all things crappy I was delighted, but also surprised. Previously in the company I always ran into stiff resistance since most of the people there didn't share the same affection as me for crappy theme restaurants, but for some reason, without my active involvement, they had chosen a "Church" themed restaurant. Namely the "Christon Cafe" in Shibuya.
It was delightful, and as I have no particular love lost for organized and/or dis-organized religion in particular, the heresy of the general atmosphere of this place was wonderful. The restaurant is pimped out as a semi-church complete with crucifixes, a statue of the virgin Mary and gargoyles among other things. Also, on the menu, they actually had a dish called "Satan's seafood rice" which we obviously had to order. A place like this would probably be impossible to open in most other countries, but political correctness have not really penetrated Japan. You should go there too!
