    Okay, now that I’ve seen that picture I’m officially scared of eel! 😛

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and sushi-free New Year! 😀

  2. It looks sort of like bacon in the top picture with Roeland (um, thanks for sharing, BTW), but does it take like chicken?

    It’s a lot more 3-D than bacon. I have no idea what eel tastes like–nor will I ever… 🙂

    Yellowtail is pretty good, but I wouldn’t touch any of the other. Eel or octopus–blech.

    I tried the Yellowtail as well, but I actually liked the octo a little better (but, it was definitely more chewy). 🙂

    Yeah, I’m with ya on the sushi…give me an undercooked burger before some raw fish… My girl love sit though, so I’m always in some dilemma over what to eat. It would be rude to get some carls jr and sit in the sushi joint eating a double bacon western burger…so I opt for the Chicken too…

    You live within striking distance–take her to One. They have chicken, steak, and every kind of sushi you can imagine. It’s in Murrieta, right where the 15 and 215 split–go east on Murrieta Hot Springs road (look for the Sizzler on the left just past the 215–it’s right across the parking lot).

    I LOVE SUSHI!!
    My one rule though is that I won’t eat anything with tentacles.

    I’m OK with the tentacles as long as it’s cooked–I LOVE calamari. 🙂

    Why would octopi need a belt? Why not suspenders? What about garters? If you undo the belt do they explode? Gotta tell you, that photo looks like a plate of slugs to me. A little Bug-B-Gone by Ortho sprinkled on them ought to take care of them.

    Haha! That’s hilarious! If the octo’s exploded when you undid their belts, I’d NEVER eat anywhere else! I’d go there just for the magnificent video that could be obtained! 🙂

    I’m not into eating raw fish and I don’t eat bivalve mollusks either. I will eat calamari and that’s it. Regarding the 2.7 changeover you will find the best documentation for users is in the official wordpress.com blog http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2008/12/10/the-many-ways-to-configure-your-new-dashboard/ I’m really enjoying the changes. 🙂

    When I first read “bivalve mollusks” I was picturing water buffaloes wearing snorkeling equipment! Haha!

    OK, I know what bivalve mollusks are (now that I looked them up). They are like regular mollusks, but with two valves, like clams, oysters and certain political figures. 🙂

    As far as 2.7 goes, I’m getting it now. Pretty cool. 🙂

    Enjoy you food and let your friend keep them eyes rolling and the tongue wiggling.

    Hi sweetie! Do you think you will ever try the live octopi? The ones where you wrap the live tentacles around the chopstick and then try to swallow before the suckers latch onto your tongue. I know the answer to that one, but I would love to see your friend eat that!

    Live octopi? No way! Not me! I wouldn’t even want to SEE that–unless, of course, the octopus won. LOL 🙂

    I doubt even Roeland would eat that.

    Your friends are very colorful. Roeland and his eel face, and then your friend in the furry, furry hat at the football came. I do believe a room full of these fellow and hilarity might ensue. 🙂

    Note to self- NO octopus ever, ever ever ever ever ever ever…

    Ewwww…I hate sushi. I’m like you — it definitely tastes like bait! I haven’t tried octopus before. My rule is to always try something at least once, so I will have to give it a go. I must say I love your friends Gene Simmons impression — spot on!

    Sushi is DELICIOUS! But to me, octopus tastes alot like I imagine a rubberband with soy sauce would taste. I love eel tho. And mussels. The only raw I like is tuna carpachio (sp?) Red snapper, yellow tail and things of the similar raw sort are just too sticky and rather bland. The sad misconception is that sushi is raw fish when in reality, you can enjoy some damned good sushi and its all cooked.

    I am proud that you ventured into strange waters. And I thank you for posting the pic of your bud. Its awesome and I think it would go well with my blog as well…. throw in some gouged eyeballs, and exposed entrails and we are talking SCORE!

    I love sushi, but you hit the nail on the head by asking for a ‘sliver’. I think sushi fish should come in slivers, not in a slab. Otherwise it’s like tring to chew a bath sponge.

    I can’t help myself to laugh when I imagined Mr. Roeland rolled his eyes in hideous delight every time he bites sushi. For some people eating this sushi is like a kind of adventures in eating. When you made it and totally swallowed, it’s like we love to shout “YES! I made it! I made it!”

    But by eating this octopus sushi, we can get lots of nutrition from it. Such as calories, protein, carbohydrate, fiber, iron, vitamin etc. Yeah they are right. The food that you hated the most are the food that contain of nutrition’s you needed most.

    I think it all boils down to your culture… Japanese people love sushi since they get used of eating them. But other countries are a bit hesitant to try them since they’re not used to eating raw food. Anyway, I’m not a fan of sushi too… 🙂
