This week's tablehopper: slow hop.


One thing I was not going to miss was the opportunity to try chef Tomita-san’s tsukemen at a special lunch at Ramen Shop last Friday. You can read more on my Instagram post (at @tablehopper). Photo: ©

Hi there. Greetings from my sick crypt—she has risen! And how fitting, right before Easter! I thought I had a horrible cold but no, surprise (!), it was the flu! Seriously, what the hell. I’m on day 11 (or is it 12?) over here, and really over it. No more soup, please! But I have finally turned the corner on this damn thing. People, wash your hands like you have OCD—you don’t want this, it’s a beast (and I had a flu shot!). I say don’t touch anyone or anything for another month. Ha-ha. Anyway, take care of yourselves out there. I’m trying to do the same.

I managed to get some stories together for you today, but am moving pretty slow, so you’re getting it a little late. And I’m not feeling particularly funny either—more fussy than anything. Hopefully the jokes and sass will return next week. At least I have an awesome giveaway for you.

Wishing you all a happy Passover, Easter, and sunny week. Spring is here!

Hop hop. Cough cough.
