Last night The Hubs didn't get home from work until 9:30pm.
Doesn't his boss know we're newlyweds and need "alone time?" Ugh.
Just had lunch with my mom. Pappasitos. Pretty good.
Have a date tonight with my fave girls. Simon's Sushi. YESSSS!!!
Let me tell you about Simon's Sushi:
It's a hole in the wall sushi place. It has HANDS DOWN the best sushi in all the Japans. Ok, I don't eat chunks of raw fish of any sort. I'm a roll connoisseur. Now if raw tuna comes on top of a roll or a small piece in a roll I'll eat it. But I DO NOT eat, for example, a live octopus or swordfish. Nothing screams "MMMMMMM" to me about a fish scooped right out of the Gulf of Mexico that probably died on it's commute to Dallas. Sick out. There are several types of sushi eaters I believe.
I'll break them down for you:
First you have the California Roll eaters.
These are, for lack of better words, the "sushi virgins."
They love the idea of eating sushi. It's foreign culture, hefty price tag, and the fact that it is hated by the uneducated is the basis of it's appeal. The California Roll eaters are basically dipping their toes in the wasabi to try it out and hopefully become more accustomed to said sushi craze.
Next you have the Entry Level Sushi Eater. (This would be the category I fall under). Still a roll fan, the Entry Level Sushi Eater is not afraid to branch out and try smoked salmon, Tuna sashimi, and possibly a seaweed salad. This level of sushism is the most common. Trying out new places such as Blue Fish, Sushi Zushi, or a personal fave, Simon's Sushi.
Lastly you have the Full on Sushi Snob. This group of sushi eaters will often only eat at the sushi bar, making them appear more in tune with the sushi experience. They are not afraid to sit alone at a sushi bar for lunch and chat with the chef, some might even have picked up a bit of Japanese to impress said chef. The Sushi Snob is quick to judge those entering the sushi establishment that don't "appreciate" the foreign culture. Any type of roll to a Sushi Snob is hilarious to them, as are the people that order them.
So next time you go out for sushi, think about what category you fall under.
