I’m reading this book, Memories of a Geisha. It’s pretty well known; Spielberg is supposedly making a movie from it. Anyway, it’s absolutely fascinating. Just, a totally different world, and it’s helped me understand certain elements of Iron Chef better, like when that one chef brought a couple geisha, and what the heck Ursula the fortune teller does.
Speaking of which, the Food Network had a 24 hour Iron Chef marathon on New Year’s Day. Ohms recorded 8 hours of it for me. I’m pretty excited – I haven’t seen IC in a while.
