sushi night

me, katy (of 40th birthday fame), chi, andrea

went out for sushi last night with some friends. didn't have a chance to change or anything after canine obedience class (for jane, y'all! i already know how to behave) and my appearance shows it. and just look at the loveliness of my sushi-mates. i am shamed.

it was bogo night, so we all got cheap sushi. unfortunately, sashimi was not included on the list so i had to get nigiri-- the kind with the fish on top of little rice balls for those of you not familiar. it's funny how all i want when i get sushi is just the slabs o' raw fish. forget all the accoutrements. chop off the fish's head and serve it up on a platter. my favorites are salmon roe and mackerel, both very 'fishy' tasting. not for everyone, i know.

in other news, my friend from high school (and beyond), jill, just ahd a baby girl last night! soooo exciting! she has a 2 year old little boy also. must go find baby gift. as long as i already have to go to the tax man's office and the dmv, i might as well do a little fun baby shopping, too. i love to buy baby gifts. everything so small and cute. it plays into my obsession with miniature things i guess.

You look perfectly lovely! And a sushi night out with the girls sounds like a perfect evening to me. Our family loves sushi and the girls love their sushi pizza. Funnily enough, I've never tasted the mackerel but now that you've recommended it, I just might give it a try. I do eat mackerel but only when it is fried crisp or in a hot and sweet curry. Will let you know what I think. I'll leave the salmon roe for someone else to try however! :)

I too am a sashimi woman! But I must say the speciality rolls(bogo)were to die for...yellow tail, salmon, scallops, eel, avocado...yuuummy :') And I too rushed home from a LONG day at work to throw on a change of clothes ( I didn't think they'd appreciate me in my scrubs). Don't get me wrong, I would have showed up there anything I wouldn't do for sushi?!!! Anyway, great night out with the women folk. Love it!
