Hopefully the kids can get back to school soon, it would put some needed normalcy back in all our lives.
Tell me about it.

I was looking forward to my daughter going full time from April at Youchien and getting some much needed time to ourselves during the week.

With my RTA and covid-19 I've not been to yaki-niku for months and I'm gagging for some meat....

Did you check Uber Eats for delivery in your area? We've been pleasantly surprised. Used it a few times.

Yeah tried it once with a 1,000 yen coupon but wasn't overly bowled over to be honest.
Theres the 350 yen surcharge and then the menu prices are jacked up compared to going yourself.

The menu selection was quite poor to be honest - it focussed on the big chain stores eg KFC, McDonalds, Starbucks, Hanamaru Udon and Hotto Motto for example.

There were a few other listings but none we've ever heard of...

The yakiniku place we want to go is all you can eat for 2 hours for 4,000 yen a person - the meat's maybe slightly lower quality than a "by the place" offering but doesn't bother me - I stuff my gizzard to the point I'm ready to puke before I walk out

Prime number and a multiple of 3. This indicates that future numbers will vary.

Whatever the numerology, let's move on to stage 1 ! We can always go back to stage 0 during the next wave !

Even prime number, which is a sure sign that tomorrow's number will be divisible by 1.

Not necessarily. Captive expats count as 3/5 of a person.

Yeah but expats are never going to get tested because mendokusai, so the number will always be an integer.
