Man's First Instinct is to Survive

Okay, so I did buy the Frozen Tuna fillet from that sketchy Asian market in Virginia Beach. Sure, they tried to kill me by *giving* me some special snapper, but hey, the tuna looked pretty.


So I defrosted it. Sliced it, cut up some cucumber/avocado/crab, bought some wasabi paste, made a crab/masago mixture, and went to work making rolls...now, to be fair, I personally did not make a roll, nor did I actually mix up the mayo/crab/masago thing...those roles belonged to this pretty girl I know...

Anyway it looked something like this when we started:



And, here is what it looked like when we were done:



No "Mt. Fuji's Revenge" or anything...it actually worked and tasted really good. The whole process was a lot of fun, but the stress of eating raw fish at home combined with the great meal sure made me sleepy...

**Thanks Jeremy and Amity for the sushi set and knife...it was a lot of fun! Can someone say Sushi Party.**

Please keep Mr. Bill Watson in your prayers...a friend from Louisiana...he is having open heart surgery today. Also keep in your prayers his family. It has been a very stressful week for all of them. Although, I am sure it was made easier when LSU beat Alabama this week!

Going to see Man of La Mancha tonight and I fly out early Friday morning for Vegas with my brother and pops...we are going to be checking out the Cigar Aficionado Big Smoke. Should be a great time with the guys...and yes, we are going to be spending a day relaxing in the day spa. C'mon Kevin, you know you are jealous.

On Sunday, I am off to Memphis for a conference, so I don't know if I will be able to update the blog until next Thursday...I am sure I will have pictures and interesting stories about my trips. Until then, stay thirsty or classy or pretty...whatever you do, do it.

Day spa huh. Shocker :-) Have a good time and sorry I'll be in SD when you are here in TN.

You might like the Civil Rights Museum if you have a two hour window. Just got to see it with J and Tom...
