Reflections on eating sushi for the first time

  • Easily the most rice I've eaten in years
  • Wasabi is not as intimidatingly spicy as I recall
  • Pickled ginger is not very good
  • The fish itself is not ultra flavorful (may be a result of getting sushi far from any coast)
  • More sauces utilized than expected
  • Embarassing that I didn't try sushi until I was 24
  • Would eat it again though (hopefully closer to, you know, an ocean)

Five haikus about Kanye West

Congratulations
On your abrasive album
Lou Reed is a fan

Feminists hate it
The racially conscious too
And the religious

Daughter named North West
It's funny to give joke names
She might not laugh though

Huge drop in your sales
Now we know what happens with
No advance singles

One thing bothers me
Where can I learn Swaghili
Google is no help

Non-obnoxious things about the Fourth of July

  • Excuse to eat burgers
  • Excuse to drink beer
  • Excuse to do both while listening to "Born in the USA"
  • Lots of sales
  • Day off work
  • Fireworks are still cool
