suuuuuuuuuusHI NIWA!!!

Jennifer gave me some beautiful Japanese plates and chopsticks for Christmas (among many other things). When we chatted on the phone she said "I hope it's okay that there are only two plates" which made me laugh because the only person who would be eating Japanese food with me is her. Otherwise, I'm on my own (Scott does not dig on Japanese, Chinese or Thai food). How sad for me - probably should have looked into that more thoroughly before I settled in for a life of looking for friends to eat out with.

Last night, as a reward for going to the gym a total of two days in a row, I went and got myself some take out from "Sushi NIWA!". Note, you must say the name of the restaurant starting slow and speeding up, modulate your voice from quiet to loud and sound really angry when you say it...try it with me: Suuuuuuuuuuushi NIWA!. I am easily entertained. Anyway, I looked them up in google and the only match I could find was in Germany. Go figure. I am intrigued by the "Sushi Worldwide Guide" (aka "Sushi Infogate"). Guess folks really take their sushi seriously. I am pretty lightweight - I don't venture past California Rolls and veggies. Perhaps I should make them a website in exchange for a lifetime of free food. Tonight, clearly inspired by my dinner (leftovers soon to be lunch) I will go to "Zen Step". I am not sure what this class entails, but I assume it involves a world of pain.


  1. Confirmation: Zen Step involves a world of slow, controlled pain. Good news, all NORMAL looking people in the class (thank goodness). I can't wait for the new year's resolution brigade to start next week...

  2. Mmmmm that sushi looks good! And so do the plates.

    On an unrelated note, I like your husband. He e-mailed me a question, I send him back a page of level-headed feminist ranting, and he wrote back and told me that he'd "seen the light". Good man.


  3. Hehe, I like your pronunciation of Suuuuuuuuuushi NIWA! But I can't stand the food itself. Gives me creeps thinking of eating raw fish... I guess I don't really have an appreciation for some of the "finer" things in life.

  4. JW - it was awesome, I think the plates made all the difference. Scott is funny - he read me your email response to his question, and then his email back to you. He is a good guy, eh?

    Angel - I am not very into the raw fish components of sushi...the food there is just crab, rice and veggies. I could do some of the tamer stuff, but you won't find me getting very adventurous (it's not in my nature).

    Soli - I can't do the wasabi...still working up the nerve!
