you are not my typewriter
{Monday, January 10, 2005 . Adventures, adventures}


I love love love exploring. Ever since I got my driver's liscence, I've been taking full advantage of the opportunity to explore the Chicago 'burbs (in a limited fashion, of course). So I had my first Elgin Youth Symphony rehearsal last night, and I opted to go on my own. On the way home, I was really hungry, and the only place that was still open was this sushi place called JuRin. I sat at the bar, since I was alone and since I was in sort of a hurry. So I got to talking with the sushi chef. His name was Sudo.

Sudo: Have you ever had a plum roll before?
Me: No, I haven't.
Sudo: It's kind of sour. I don't think you'll like it.
Me: Well, I'm sure it'll be okay. I want to try it.
Sudo: What's your favorite kind of fish?
Me: Well, I don't really eat fish.
Sudo: Okay, what's your favorite kind of vegetable?
Me: Oh, I'm impartial.
Sudo: Do you like asparagus?
Me: Yeah, I like asparagus.
Sudo: Do you like mushrooms?
Me: Yeah, I lik mushrooms.

So he proceeded to make me an asparagus roll with this funny mushroom/tofu concoction on the side, and he didn't charge me any extra. He sort of grilled me about the whole not eating fish thing, and I explained veganism to him. He said that since he grew up in the inland part of Japan, he never really ate much fish either, and that next time I come in, I should ask for him so he could make me something special. I'm now Sudo's number 1 fan.

That, along with the fact that my waiter was the most attractive young man I've ever met EVER, has made JuRin my new favorite restaraunt.

In other news, I'm basically failing Spanish. Goddamn.
