Hello everyone! Welcome to this week’s episode of Eat Your Sushi! It’s our sixth week in Japan. I realize soon we’re going to have to start talking in months. I don’t want to sound like those parents who, when you ask how old their babies are, say “43 weeks.” Like that means something to me! As soon as you get over 8 weeks then it starts getting weird. Just say two months! Ok enough of that.
We’re almost done all of the boring things we have to do in settling in! We got a bank account! We got cellphone plans! We got both of those after filming this episode, so you’ll see stories and videos of those in next week’s episode. Now all that’s left is to get our furniture, and then we’ll be like real people! Wahoo!
This week is an exciting week, because we have our first guests visiting us in our house. Yay! We have Brian and Whitney coming for almost a week. You might remember last year when we spent a week in Punta Cana, we were actually there for their wedding. For their anniversary, they’re in Tokyo, so we’re going to be hanging out with them. Yay! Friends! Still don’t have enough furniture to be good hosts, but we do have enough bowls at least to feed them with. No plates yet, though. Just bowls.
Also, just a heads up: I’m not sure if we’re going to be able to announce this week’s winner next week. On Saturday, we filmed our special edition Eat Your Sushi episode at the YouTube Space in Tokyo. It was great! A bit challenging to do in front of people and not mess up. We mess up oftentimes when we’re filming alone, but we can just cut that out and no-one ever knows. But here we’re in front of people. If we mess up, they’ll know! Anyhow, I think we’ll be able to publish it next week, but YouTube sometimes takes a while to approve videos that were shot in their studio. So, if they can greenlight us in time, we can publish the special edition next week and then go back to our regular schedule the week after. If not, then nevermind!
