Guess What I Ate Today

I had some friends come into town today. They're doctors' wives and like to eat fancy foods. I'm game. Sure, I'll pay $35 for lunch. I mean I don't do it everyday, right? It was mighty good. Even the fish sperm.

I just showed my husband the pictures and he said, "Oh, so you eat fish balls." I replied with something like, "Fish have balls?" Then I looked it up.

Funny thing is I had heard the word before, lots. It's kind of like fish. A fish is a fish is a fish to me. I like fish. And I can identify quite a bit here. But I couldn't tell you what they were in English.

Shirako. Remember that. It means White Child/Children. I suppose it wouldn't have been that much of a stretch of my imagination to figure out what it was.

So here are the pics. See if you can find the fish sperm. Yum! As an aside, it was soft and creamy.

※ Sorry, some of the pictures are enormous.

Gotta Blog Anything!

I gotta blog anything just to use up all that white space. Well, I could go into the html and narrow up the video. I suppose that might work. But this is easier.

Here is the answer to the koan: "Why I can't finish a book in under six months time".

This is a what I'm currently reading.

Note: This post will be edited before the end of the day because I just recieved confirmation that Amazon has sent one of two orders I made last weekend. Yes, I have a problem.
