The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Slow day
Well, my boss is out until the 5th, the other person in my dept is out until Wednesday, the VP isn't here.. The weekly engineering meeting was canceled this morning. I have some customer stuff I'm dealing with, a little unexpected so there are things I was going to be doing that I'm not. I woke up this morning a bit before 07:00, after falling asleep around 02:00. I have no idea why I woke up early, but now I'm feeling really tired and twitchy.

I wrangled up a few people and we did lunch at Fugakyu in Sudbury, and now I'm fighting off torpor. Mmm... Idaho Maki... Damn the food there is so good. But I really ate too much - Idaho maki, edamame, Sukiyaki-Don Bento... I want a nap.

I never did make it to Home Depot last night. I messed up their Sunday hours, I thought I'd go grocery shopping and then hit HD. But HD closed at 20:00 and I got there at like 19:55. So I'll hit it on the way home tonight.

Well, I just needed a bit of a brain break - back to PHP.

I am: edgy
Current Media: office buzz

I envy your sushi consumption!

Okay, what the HELL is Idaho Maki? This whole California Roll thing has gone too far. Some of it makes sense I suppose, but a lot of stuff I've seen on menus are just wrong. Of the wrong ones I've seen to date is what I saw in Virginia Beach one year called Virginia Maki which was cucumber, egg, and HAM of all things. I also think that putting fried foods is wrong. It's not sushi once you put tempura prawns or deep fried soft shell crab into a roll... Okay, sorry about the rant, but what is in an Idaho Maki? Please don't tell me there are potatoes in that thing...

Sweet potatoes actually. And it is incredibly good. :-)

I don't like seafood, so when I have sushi it is veggie sushi.

That sounds amazing.

I am getting really tired of avocado rolls. There was one place that had carrot sushi... but they had lousy tempura. Have you had the sweet potato tempura? That's wonderful too.

It's hard to tell when they will have good things in the tempura. The green pepper and broccoli day was hideous.

I only like the sweet potato tempura. The green stuff I leave for people who are into torturing themselves. ;)

Tempura green beans are OK. Unfortunately, they are easily confused with tempura asparagus, which is gross. My favorite is the regular potato tempura if I am going by taste, but sweet potato has the added bonus that no one else wants there and I get extra! :-)
