11:16 pm - for those of you who are following along at home
About 8 PM I realized that I was still fucking starving. And I considered the expression I remembered on the hostess' face when I angrily declaimed "I have been waiting for 40 minutes!" at her. And realized that, probably, she really wasn't deliberately not seating me as a single so that she wouldn't have a single seat left unfilled when she had couples to put at the bar, she probably had just fucked up and forgotten she had a single waiting for the sushi bar, because I was being quiet and doing a sudoku in some retarded tinytown local paper while I waited.

So I went back, and she looked terrified to see me there again, and I asked her quietly "did you deliberately seat those people ahead of me?" and she put her hand on my arm and said "no, I would never do that, it was a mistake, I know you, I'm so sorry, I was in the back crying after you left - please stay, I'll buy you your first beer. Please, will you stay?" and she bought me a beer and I had sushi and I asked Maru-san "kyoo wa, nani o oishii desu ka?" and he humored me and I bought a round for all the chefs that wound up being a huge round because they were out of the small bottles and even the chef who's usually a sourpuss came over to knock glasses with me and say "kampai" and they gave me a beer back and before I left I spent like 20 minutes talking to the hostess, who it turns out takes Japanese at USC and I think I've seen her around the campus and she wants me to come to the Japanese club meetings that I never quite got around to going to back when I was taking Japanese where people drink and karaoke and then most of them stay and drink some more and the world is a slightly less hostile place now. Thank god. Good night.

Incidentally, it took me MONTHS to figure out whether your Christian Bale icon was captioned "BAD." or "BRO."

I still think either is fairly appropriate.

She said she was in the back CRYING about it? Hahaha. She's either psychotic or she wants to sleep with you.

Judging by my past, that's more likely to be an and than an or.
