“At the heart of this film is a young widow named Tampopo, who is struggling to make ends meet by running a noodle restaurant. Goro, a truck driver, saves Tampopo’s young son from being beaten by a group of school girls and is rewarded with a bowl of very bad ramen noodles. Goro tells Tampopo the awful truth about her cooking and she asks for his help. Together they search for the perfect ramen recipe.”

And The Ultimate Birthday Present, Ambassador to the Universe Training, wherein a leading US UFO researcher takes you on a field trip during which you “make contact” with actual UFOs. Interesting, at the very least. They have assured me, via email, that trainings will be running in 2005. Excellent. And guess where I’m standing in the photo at right!
