Yesterday I was out and about (Christmas shopping, I need a sleigh for my windowsill), and realising it was lunchtime, I decided on the spur of the moment to try some sushi. I was going to do this sometime this summer anyway, and since I was standing right next to a "Cherry Blossom", today seemed like the perfect time.
I'd planned on trying sushi sometime in January or February, since I'd already used this year's "trial" for avocado.
Then of course I needed a book to read while I ate, so stopped in at the nearest secondhand book shop and picked up a copy of "A Deeper Sleep" by Dana Stabenow. (no, I've never heard of her (him?) either...) Off the bargain table for only $2.
The sushi was nice, the seaweed wrapper is an unusual taste, but not so unusual that I can't get used to it...
On the way home on the bus, I was still reading the book when I came across this bit that made me laugh out loud. (Heads were turned...I didn't care)
"And that was only if you didn't count the squatters, Kate thought, more of whom seemed to arrive everyday. Most of them had roseate expectations of a life at one with nature, and nature was reliably and enthusiastically prompt in disillusioning them. One guy pitched a tent on a bear track, and the bears, delighted by this change of diet, obligingly ate him and his girlfriend. Another guy hiked out to a broken-down bus and sat there until he starved to death, having neglected to study the part of the noble savage lifestyle about learning to hunt."
If the rest of the book delights me as much, I'll be looking for more stories by this author!
