    When I say I like sushi, I mean I like SUSHI. Favorites are salmon, tuna, squid & octopusl Don't like the scrambled egg ones or any of the roes (salmon roe is gushy, sea urchin & smelt row are equal parts salty, crunchy & NASTY).

    There are a couple of places now that make passable Sushi (HyVee is NOT one of them), but none of them come close to Isobune Sushi in Japantown. That's the ONLY thing I miss about San Francisco: fresh seafood & quality ethnic food. :)
    Try Miyabi 9 in the East Village or Akebono across the street from the Hotel Fort Des Moines. Best two sushi spots I've found in Des Moines so far.

    What's the difference between a milk shake and a frappe (not the ones at Starbucks, but the ice cream thing on the east coast)? Is there one, or is this another case of east coast people being weird?

    Daughter left a half empty cup of milk on the table last night after dinner. Just watched her wash her donut down with a big swig of old warm milk.

    The look on her face was priceless. I could have stopped it, but I decided it was a good life lesson about clearing off the table......that, and it was funny.


    Hoiberg: I have a unique situation here. I grew up here. I went to college here. My family is close and my wife's family is close. I know everyone in the community and my family is very comfortable here. My daughter has dreamed about one thing and that's going to Iowa State. The NBA is great and I love the NBA, but I love Iowa State and the opportunity I have here. We've really built something special and I think we've got real momentum to keep it going even more.

    I had had to buy my own pie, since the ladies on CF suck so much. Yeah, you're reading that right. Almost six bucks. For half of a pie. Because crap is expensive here. And it tastes like crap. I hope you're all happy with yourselves.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    is the 4th of July the most rasist holiday? think about it. no other holiday celebrates white men more than independence day, as we reflect on what white men did for us. thank god we have president Obama in the white house otherwise we would have two rasist holidays (presidents day) as a nation, i think it would be better to celebrate the freedom that we have today then the freedom that we gained 600 years ago from men who had slaves and beat up their wives for beer money.

    If you're going to be offended....at least be able to spell what offends you. I mean, unless you are offended by inequality between rases.

    And oh, by the way...celebrating the freedom we have today is part of July 4th, at least for me.

    Part of the reason (not all of the reason) there are still problems between races is that BOTH sides continue to invest in it. Looking for the racism in everything is just as dumb as looking for reasons to hate people because of their race.

    And crows are ********. Why are they CAW CAW CAWING at 4am? And who lights fireworks at 3am? The loud sound ones?

    My best friend since middle school just got engaged. Only problem is she is a complete *****. None of our friends really like her. She is one of those that is really whiny, demanding and always thinks she has it the worst.

    I dont know whether to feel happy for them or sad for him. And I dont know what to say if they ask me to be involved in the wedding.
