|10:29 pm - lyzi and kate will be pleased|
i was gonna try that dew drop inn restaurant place for dinner tonight, but they were closed (what restaurant is closed at 6:50pm on a saturday?). so i walked down the street and went into that asian food market that i always passed by and wanted to check out. it's the motherload! oh man, so much fun-looking stuff. cans of fun fruits i've never heard of, and weird asian snack foods (pocky!) and seafood things (like Mr Squid jerky. which apparently is made of some kinda fish i forget the name of, but no squid is involved) and incomprehensible packages and and and even cds! good times. i bought rice noodles and bamboo shoots and tamarind (i think that's what it's called. that fruit stuff) and 'sour soup concentrate' (i don't know) and these candy bars that turned out to be like dusty kitkats. i was the only nonasian in there, all the asian kids glared at me.
state: i tried to make soup and it came out TERRIBLE
np: Social Distortion - I Was Wrong
Yeah, I've noticed that the brothers and sisters of the Caucasian persuasion don't get treated too well at our fine ethnic markets... I apologize for my people.
I've probably eaten almost everything in that market, minus the squid/not squid jerky. Salty fruit stuff is the shit.
I AM so proud, Dan. Just find yourself a nice Asian or Jewish (OR BOTH!) wife and I'll be happy forever.
you can be a bridge of understanding between our two worlds. let your people know that us whiteys can be trusted.
i need you to come there with me sometime and tell me what all that stuff is. half of it had no english or pictures on the labels so i didn't have much to go on. why no fish jerky? that stuff rules. i woulda gotten it but it was expensive. i almost got some lichee (i think i spelled that right) too, but they only had it in heavy syrup
i don't think i've ever met an asian jewish girl. that'd be hot
my roommate wing used to shop there all the time. they have the craziest shit.
it was awesome, i want to go back

a) i gaurantee it was cuttlefish
b) in the building where i work there's an indian market... or something. and anytime anyone from my office goes in there for a soda or whatever, he starts talking to us... like "working hard? many appointments today?" its creepy. i think he's lonely.
a) yeah, that was it! i kept thinking kettlefish, but i knew it started with a c.
b) aw the poor guy. be his friend! maybe he'll give you discounts

yes, cuttlefish.... but wouldn't cuddlefish be more accurate?
the ones i saw didn't look so cuddly
