Uaaah (Annoyed...)

What about normal sorts like strawberry, vanilla, etc.?

The New York restaurant consulting firm of Joseph Baum & Michael Whiteman Inc. says we'll see more . . . snack courses at restaurants, more bitter chocolate, lots of figs and bison, and ice cream appetizers like Parmesan ice cream on grilled raddichio. What, no sauerkraut ice cream? :-(

However, this comes close:

kraut smoothie

Servings: 1

kraut

vanilla ice cream

milk

lemon

add kraut and ice cream to blender, and blend lightly

pour in glass, add scoop of vanilla ice cream

enjoy! it is awesome! a great diet drink! (Sign of approval)

Prep Time: 5 mins

Day 6

Good evening. This is Tooyama.

Hatsu Basho. Day 6

Tochiazuma-zeki won again today with good sumo.

The photo today is from the balcony seats at the Kokugikan.

Second floor seats may have the image of being far away from the dohyo.

But the way the Kokugikan is structured, the front rows of the balcony seats

may give you a closer and better view than the rear of masu boxes.

It may even be surprisingly interesting and enjoyable to watch sumo from up high.

Toshinyama-san was saying the other day,

Good evening! This is Tooyama.

Hatsu Basho. Day 14.

Today was the big bout against Hokutoriki-zeki, who had only two defeats.

The ozeki won his 13th with a tsuki-otoshi [sic] after displaying some unflustered sumo.

If he wins tomorrow, he will clinch his third honbasho championship.

Tomorrow, I would like to assist him as a tsukebito in every way possible.

I also have one more bout left and I will do my utmost.

Thanks, everyone, for all your support this basho.

One more day! Gambarimasu!

This is Tooyama!

Thanks to everyone, Tochiazuma-zeki did yusho!

We are just now returning from the Kokugikan after the awards ceremony.

I am tentatively updating the blog to receive your comments.

Once things settle down a bit, I will update the blog properly.

* * * * *

So far, there have been a record 132 comments to the blog. Among them are many from foreign countries

Tochiazuma is starting his own blog from today. "I'd like to hear all kinds of people's views and comment on them", he said. The address is the 日記風サイト. I have no idea what or where that is, but I'm sure some of you can help, and maybe Mado-san can translate this as well, as soon as he finds it..

Edit: http://www.tochiazuma.jp./

He says as much as he'd like to update stuff himself, most of the work will be done by his tsukebito Tououyama.. Still, he will be posting by himself too, I gather.

He says he will reply to comments. Great chance to ask him about drugs in sumo, yaocho, fpt, or whatever we'd never solve out here.

So, Tooyama is going to write for two blogs now? Or maybe someone else will take care of Tamanoi blog?

It would be marvelous if someone could translate it...

Grand Opening of Tochiazuma Blog

f09baf285098507ac8315094331acd.jpg

Good morning. This is Tooyama.

Congratulations! Tochiazuma-zeki, Yusho!

The moment yusho was decided I was so happy I almost cried.

I, too, was able to win 5 bouts thanks to the support I received from all of you through the blog.

There were flowers galore at the heya.

And even more flowers arriving ever since this morning.

Madorusumaru-san,

Im proud of you. :-(

The sumo scene noticed us- no way without your Translations. (Jonosuke-sama, も (Eh?) - you know what I want to say (Clapping wildly...) )

Hope the Tochiazuma-fans will "stay" at his own blog . Tooo many comments on the Tamanoi-blog would crash the atmosphere.

I do get a bit worried about writing something irregular . . .

I'm happy. Blogs are ;-) ...

So sad there is still no Musashigawa blog translator...(not good enough to do this job, but I swear I will help translating as soon as I am able to )

Don't worry. The inaugural Tochiazuma blog had over 500 comments. Tamanoi blog is down to 40. The bandwagoners, mercifully, have departed. (Bye, bye...)

Even 40......boah, that's fat.

I post regularly, and the normal level is 12 comments a Tamanoi post...

But, it's great to see Tooyama that pleased. (Bye, bye...)

i think you read it wrong.

the comments about the SF regulars were Madorusumaru's own observation from what i can see.

I know that. But Tooyama mentioned Madoru and the foreign fans before. Thought that's just a good time and place to say "Thank you".

The Wrath of Shibuya!

a33dbacdb37181c394289deace1be5.jpg

Hello. This Tooyama.

Hatsu Basho has ended and we are enjoying a week off from keiko.

The only occasions we have any sustained time off are the one week periods after honbasho,

As such, each of us is trying to enjoy the vacation to the fullest.

In midst of all that, Shibuya was lying around in front of the TV in the Big Room and

making all sorts of noises of discontent.

Apparently, he was watching the news on television and grumbling to himself,

so I tried to listen closer to what he was saying . . .

Tooyama seems to pick on Shibuya a lot, but that's because he loves the kid almost as a little brother--they are both from Adachi in Tokyo where the heya is located. In fact, almost everybody likes Shibya who is now considered the "hope of Tamanoi" since Yoshiazuma is stagnating in upper makushita.

As mentioned elsewhere, there is a panel discussion in a current sumo magazine where the oyakata in charge of the Sumo Training Institute discuss their candidates for sekitorihood in the near future. Listed as #8 behind the likes of Sawai, Kageyama, and Wakanoho is none other than our irrepressible "Hungry Boy."

Moderator: Among the 2003 rookies, it would have to be Shibuya. He has had KK every basho this past year.

Takasaki: Shibuya is a very interesting rikishi. He is constantly moving forward.

Yamahibiki: He is big but he isn't a typical "anko." I think the way he uses his body to move forward is great.

Mod: He could be considered one of the most improved rikishi of the past year.

Kumegawa: He can also use the tsuki (thrust move) well.

Shibuya went KK (4-3) in Hatsu Basho by beating another well-regarded youngster, Nakanokuni, in his 7th bout. At makushita west 17, he should be promoted to an area where a whole bunch of the hopefuls will congregate next basho. If all goes well, we may see him in juryo by the end of the year.

Imagine being a tsukebito for Shibuya. They'd have to assign someone just to "go-fer" his snacks. Or instead of a personal trainer, he'd request a personal chef.

Note: "anko" - sumo term for the typically rotund rikishi. Ama ain't an anko.
