I'm really not a fan of sushi anymore, mostly because I can't justify the cost when really good fish and mediocre fish taste almost the same to my palate. I think smoking, hard liquor, and flavorpunch food have taken their toll, because I remember I used to enjoy it a lot more.

Will still eat the hell out of uni though, and japanese food is so varied that losing sushi isn't a big hit.

I'm kinda approaching that from the other way around. I've eaten lots of really good sushi since I was young, so all the sushi I have access to now just tastes... mediocre. And now that I'm paying for my sushi, instead of mooching off of rich relatives when I was young, I'm really not willing to go and pony up serious percentages of my paycheck for some sushi that reminds me of what I used to eat.

And I'm really not willing to go around to the neighborhood "sushi" joint and pay like 7 bucks for a "dragon" roll or whatever the gently caress the kids eat nowadays.

Yeah, I feel the same way about eating some tex wasabi sushi poo poo, it basically eliminates the point of eating raw fish, which is tasting the quality. There is some stuff I really like still (I had this uni/foie sushi thing and Nobu Malibu) but that isn't really sushi and it is super expensive.

I also think I am becoming obsessed with this restaurant near my place which is really awesome, but every time I go I am seriously disappointed by at least one item. It's fairly new, but it feels like a bad girlfriend.

Gotta agree with the lavender hate, though I think it is less a product of the flower itself than ingrained western grandma memories.

Covered the Westminster dog show today and it was basically the most awesome thing ever. The best dogs in the world, gathered in one place, with all their crazy owners. So much fun.

I managed to get this ballerina's phone number last night while drinking alone at the bar! She was wearing trashy sweats and eating chicken tenders with a vodka tonic so all in all a pretty sharp lady. (And she's a ballerina!)

Wanted to throw a thanks to Wiggles for direction on the baque stew, it turned out great, squid, cod, shrimp and scallops in a spicy paprika-tomato broth. Sooooo good.

Also big thanks to gravity for the chinese cleaver I got for secret santa. It owns owns owns, I like it better than my chef knife, I made the whole meal using only that cleaver!

I find that in the boonies, the classier sounding the hotel, the more likely it is to charge by the hour and have sheets that sound like rice krispies when you sit on them.

Holiday Inns aren't too bad, and the most important thing is consolidating your hotel points in a single chain.

edit: Just saw it is a Hilton chain, go for that.

Getting to gold at different airlines and hotel chains is some sort of weird real life version of a game with levelling up.. It really speaks to the nerd in you!

The advantages on the other hand (upgrades, and a loving newspaper, and also free stays), are really not worth the investment of time, and leaves you feeling like an empty husk.

I really view it as a bonus, it is basically free money, and the more you do it, the more perks you get. Free upgrades, never flying coach, going in the quick lines...I guess it kind of is like an RPG. We totally need to incorporate a ten-sided dice into this thing.

One thing to keep in mind is that lobsters are seasonal. They're caught year round, but the best tasting meat comes from newshell lobsters in the summer. The harder the shell, the blander the taste. Lobster rolls are only awesome when the lobster itself is awesome. Castine is worth a visit anyway, it's a very cool town.

That's what I understood, so I ate the worst mexican food ever and returned to New York today. Upon which I was told I would be on a plane Friday night back to Afghanistan for the week. On the plus side, that's a whole bunch of miles. On the minus side, well...

You guys are broken, I love lobster, though agree SOME crab is better. The texture of butter-poached lobster is incredible, and yeah, it's a vessel for other flavors at times, but the inherent sweetness of the flesh is still noticeable.

Rumor has it that models prepare for big shows by buying a bunch of cocktail shrimp, leaving it out for a while, then gorge on the rotting shrimp so they can get food poisoning and trim down by the inevitable consequences.

I stress that this is rumor, and I have not heard it from an actual model, as I am a horrible, horny, forever alone goon.

Dear LJ,

Was at a gay wedding last night. Both the men are actors, so they had a showtunes thing going. Ugh. Showtunes. However, the festivities were truly a celebration of life and love. It was a wonderful thing, and I had a fantastic time. We've got another 4 weddings to go to this year. Here's hoping I don't go broke trying to get gifts for all of those people.

Showtunes own. I brought down the house at karaoke last night singing "Diamond's are a girl's best friend."
