Hello everyone, and welcome to another week of Eatyoursushi!
Silver week just passed, which is a somewhat big holiday week, though not as big as golden week. People don’t get the entire week off this time around, but they do get a couple of days off. One of those days being Respect for the Aged Day, which I think is just a totally delightful concept, and one that I think is kinda lacking in general where I grew up. I like Japan’s respect for older people. It makes getting older a little less scary :D
Here’s a story we didn’t tell this week: on the Respect for the Aged Day, I stepped outside for something, I don’t remember what, and I saw our lovely old grandmother neighbour. She was dressed up in a nice, business professional outfit. I greeted her, and she told me that it was Respect for the Aged Day. I told her that she should be staying home: she’s too young! She had a good laugh at that. But then she told me that she was going out to have lunch with her family, and her mother would be there. HER MOTHER! She said her mother is 90 years old. NINETY! That’s amazing! So, when we finally find a way to adopt our grandmother from across the street, that means we get a GREAT GRANDMOTHER AS WELL! I’m squeeing with delight! Fun fact about her mother being ninety: we mentioned in this video how, if you’re over 100 years old in Japan, the government gives you a silver sake cup. Well, turns out that there are so many people over 100 now and it’s costing the government a lot every year, so they’re trying to find ways around it, supposedly. Ha!
One thing we didn’t share on video: on Tuesday we actually went to the YouTube Tokyo Studio as guests for a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare event. We got to play it, and got lots of footage from the whole event. It was amazing! I never actually was that into Call of Duty beforehand, but now that I played this I’m actually really interested, and would love to go online to get obliterated by people and to listen to all their trash talking. We couldn’t share any footage of the event because we need clearance for it, and Eatyoursushi episodes are usually published very last minute, but we should be able to put together a video with what we’ve got soon! If you’re into Call of Duty that is. Or even if you’re not into it, watching us suck might give you a laugh.
Otherwise, this Thursday we’ve got an amazing video to share with you guys. We filmed it months ago and have been working hard on it since. It’s unlike any video we filmed before. We really hope you like it. We’ve been working so long on it YOU BETTER LIKE IT AHHHHH! Ok now to get back to work on that video. Here’s magic mail time if you’d like to see us continue being silly and weird :D
