At first glance, you might have seen this coming because I'm fond of collage-style illustrations... but can you resist a board book about sushi with rhymes like 'Miso in my sippy cup, tofu in my bowl. Crab and avocado fill my California roll'?

The whole series:
- First Book of Sushi
- ¡Hola! Jalapeño
- Let's Nosh
- Yum Yum Dim Sum
- A Little Bit of Soul Food
- Mangia! Mangia! (added 17 Sep 05)

What's your favorite children's book about food? Mine is a tie between Eating the Alphabet and Blueberries for Sal.

Given the opportunity, Laurel will eat California rolls like they're going out of style. This is Useful Knowledge when we have lunch at Tokyo One and its all-you-can-east sushi.

Now, what's your favorite children's book about food?

(also, just so you know, w/r/t phone message, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just too stupid to figure out how to get my telephone to call you back from the message)

You know, you can just call directly: 720-480-2396.

I'm glad you were able to figure out it was me, since I realized after leaving the message that I never said my name, but probably made sufficient TODCRA references that it wouldn't be too hard to guess.

Well... yeah. (Part of it was I forgot your number and didn't have it lying around. It also doesn't help that my computer was with the blowin' up this weekend.)

But yes! It took me a couple times through, because I got the message as I woke up (sadly, like, 15 minutes after your message), so I was a little groggy, but I figured it out with a, like, 95% Certainty Rate. (Otherwise, I'd probably be a little creeped out if you were all "...what message?") But yes, I did shorten my voicemail message to just the standard one.

Also, I'll probably call you back this weekend, since I get weekends and evenings free (well, aside from LD charges). Y'know, assuming my goddamn computer doesn't fuckin' DIE again. ARRRR.

If you'd called back then, I would have been eating Mongolian BBQ. "*eating sounds* Yeah, I called you. *turns to midget* Chew and swallow! *more eating sounds* I hope that message wasn't too manic. Do you think I'm hurting people's head by having beef and tofu together?"

If you're with AT&T Wireless, I've got unlimited minutes to you.

hahaha, I suppose it's good I didn't.

Nope, unfortunately, I'm with Verizon. Dale sorta warned me off of AT&T, since that's what he has, and I guess he doesn't like them much, and Consumer Report was all basically "DEAR VERIZON I LIKE YOU DO YOU LIKE ME []YES []NO LUV CS" so I figured I'd go with them.

I'm really curious to see if I like sushi.

I'm going to try lobster for the first time soon.

I JUST NOW started liking shrimp unbreaded.

Sushi is totally unlike most other seafood. If you like fishy things you'd like things with roe (tiny fish eggs) in it, but if you don't like that powerful fish smell/taste then you may wish to do as I do and stick to tuna and salmon (and, one of my favorites is surf clam, but I know that a lot of people don't like the sort of rubbery texture they have). My favorite sushi is a Veggie Roll; my favorite sashimi (where they slice the fish and put it on a small roll of rice) is: Tuna (any kind, the regular is just as good as the albacore, so don't pay extra for it) and surf clam. Sushi bars also usually have other things besides just sushi, like miso soup.

Personally, I think lobster tastes like a pier smells (like really ripe dead fish). I can't manage to get it to go down because of the gag reflex.
