Last night Daito Massive went to the Izakaia (bar/restaurant) under the Southern folks building. This is no big surprise for Friday night. As was par for the course, the food was amazing. Chris tried a new dish having something to do with "tuna cheeks" I don't know what that means, but I do know this is an absolutely amazing dish. It has really large pieces of tuna steak cooked in a delicious dark, sort of spicy, sauce. Ohh my...

During the night my friends drank progressively more and more, and I tended to match them in orange juice. So by the end, people were in various states of drunken decay and Kate asked me to do a simple subtraction calculation. Flora was "upset" that Kate only asked me and wanted to know why. Kate responded that since I was the only one sober she thought I had a better shot at it, leading to the first quote about me, "Andrew: for all your sober needs." Which Dan then changed to "Andrew: for all your rational thought needs." Which is far more accurate indeed.

Well, you know, a tuna is a pretty big fish. So its cheeks can make rather substantial pieces of meat.

By the way, I also like how you liken drunkenness to decay. It makes a lot of sense now that I think about it.

Not being a drinker, it just seems like that is the way it goes is.

Makes perfect sense to me

A few days ago I was invited dancing. Not being a drinker, the girls (after trying to force feed me sangria) gladly took up my share. A few hours later, I was still dancing, and the girls were in various states of discohesion. Later they tried to figure out why exactly I don't drink. The simple response was that if they hadn't been drinking we could have kept on having fun, but they were so worn out and unfunctional that we had to o home.

Some people like to eat the eyes.

After I hit "post" a second ago, a sudden thought came to me, would tuna eyes be expensive to buy. Because, on one hand, you can get a lot of steak from one tuna, but only two eyes. So it would take a lot of tuna to get a bowl of tuna eyes, BUT it would STILL be a bowl of tuna eyes and so a lot of people probably wouldn't be so keen to eat/buy it. So is this an example of a limited resource balanced by a limited demand? Or is the system out of balance? Are there people out there demanding tuna eyes faster than we can fish? Or are perfectly "delicious" tuna eyes being thrown out by the kilogram/liter? I just don't know...
