Our plan for Monday was to head to the bokujo/farm. Because, we have a year long family pass. It's somewhat near us and it would be a nice way to spend an afternoon. However, with the rain and all, it sorta threw our plans off and we needed a real rain check. Ha ha ha. So we decided to head to karaoke instead, for some family fun! It's cheap, only 600 yen for all of us for 1 hour and free unlimited drink bar, if you go in the afternoon, which we did. So we stayed for 3 hours. And had a medium peperoni pizza (so small, it seemed like a small, lol but it really was a medium) and a large fry. And we munched and sang and munched and sang! It was a great way to spend 3 hours on a rainy Monday! : )
Branden sang a few songs with Noboru and I! Mostly Disney songs and some Japanese school songs he learned from yochien. Noah even attempted singing some Karaoke. Seriously, he did! And I sang many many songs! A lot of my regular songs, I always sing. However, I tried to sing Avril lavigne's new song...Girlfriend. And I got the..."hey hey you you, I don't like your girlfriend" part right! But after that, it was a complete mess. As Simon would say, I was "pitchy in spots" and my tune was a little off. Sigh. I knew it was a butcher job! So I pressed the red button and stopped the song, before it even finished! Ha ha ha. But it was fine, we had so much fun being there, whether we sang great or we sang horribly. : )
It was about 3:45 pm when we left karaoke. We headed to the grocery store. Picked up some instant caramel machiatto for the mornings and some croissants. Some fresh watermelon for after dinner snackin'. And we were just plain ol' stumped what to do for dinner. We could go home and cook dinner, like I always do (problem is, we didn't feel like cooking today) Or we could go and eat a proper dinner at a restaurant, nah, we rarely do that, don't we? Or we could head to the nearest Wendy's and hit the drive thru and get some take out and go home and switch to our comfy clothes, eat some Wendy's in front of the TV for a change. Since we usually eat in the dining room. Hmmm. We thought that sounded like a good plan. So we did just that. We sat right in front of the TV. Watched satellite and kicked back for the rest of the night!
We all got just the sandwiches, only because we didn't want yucky cold fries. We figured the fries would be ice cold, by the time we got home anyways. So I had the Monterrey chicken ranch sandwich. Branden had a cheeseburger, Noah had 2 of the 105 yen nuggets. He shared some with Branden. Noboru had, 2 burgers of some sort. We went home , fried up our own fresh fries and they were hot and great! Dinner came to 1200 yen for all 4 of us. And yes, we 3 had choco frosties for the drive home.
Still odd that in all this utter country-ness there is stuff like Wendy's and stuff. And if you ever flew into Narita airport and saw the view from the window of an airplane. You know what I mean, there's seriously literally nothing around Narita. It's country! Ha ha ha!
After Wendy's was done, I chopped up this watermelon in half and we all had 6 slices of watermelon to munch on for after dinner. Thirty minutes after that, we all hit the showers and then got in our jammies and lazed around for the rest of the night. Ahhh, I am loving this Golden week stuff, I really am! Ha ha ha! : )
