Our local sushi chef is incredibly fussy about fish quality, which is why he rarely has toro. If he is going to buy it, it will be worth the money he’s going to charge people for it. This is why I had never tasted it until very recently, at which point I had my epiphany about its sheer unmitigated awesome.
I so said on Twitter, and concluded with: “I am having fantasies of cruising the ocean, eating the undersides of giant tuna and leaving the rest of them behind >.> ”
To which, good Engineer Sam replied: “Carnivorous mer-jaguar hunting giant tuna with her pack of manta rays!”
And I agreed this was a fine idea.
Apparently so did Engineer Sam, because a week later, this dropped into my inbox:
<3 <3 <3
Draw on, Engineer Sam, you crazy diamond. <3
Speaking of both sushi and my love for rays, Writing Gather has posted my ten random facts about me following the eFestival of Books nominations, so if you like trivia, head on over and see what ten things I came up with after wracking my brain. In retrospect, I still think I should have mentioned my bizarre partial master’s degree in Bioethics. Because honestly, that’s so weird that even I have trouble believing I have it.
