Olga said...

I am reminded of a pregnancy story I once heard. I haven't been able to eat fish since.

Polly P.I. said...

Oh, come on, Olga. You've got to tell it if you're gonna bring it up.

Reminds me of when I was in Malaysia and a Chinese man offered me a fish eyeball...

They're a delicacy... Shhyar, right - try telling that to an 8-year old...

That fish looks like he's foaming at the mouth - although that's the least of my concerns with this picture...

casey said...

You know, I've had a really crappy week. That picture looks EXACTLY how I feel.

Tamara said...

Whyyyy do it say "movie" in de corner?

Polly P.I. said...

Tamara,

It's a Thai restaurant called Nan. Very swanky. I was wearing black pants and the waitress took my white napkin away and replaced it with a black one!

Olga said...

Sorry all!
Okay Polly, pregnancy story. I'll put it this way so as not to gross everyone out too badly:
Think morning sickness (in the middle of the day), partially digested fish and veggies, white tile floor, unusual shape (splatter pattern?).

Polly P.I. said...

I'm sorta sorry I asked...

Tamara said...

Olga, we come here to read about GLOVES made from REAL HANDS. We need more, please. ;)

Unusual shape? I require assistance forming that visual.

*leaves to nuke some lunch*

Olga said...

Tamara,
To satisfy your hunger (ha ha) for gross details:
It was partially digested as I said, so it was kind of sticky, not too liquidy. It formed a nice sunburst-like pattern, piled around the center, complete with the dots around the perimeter. But very colorful, kind of fiesta-y.
How was your lunch?

Polly P.I. said...

Oh, gag.

Am I going to have to sit between you two?

Leetie said...

I assume you didn't have your camera with you, Olga?

Olga said...

Sorry, leetie..
That is my sister's story, and although her husband DID take a picture, I think it since has been destroyed (under threat of death, if I recall correctly). My sister didn't like the fact that her hubby liked to take it out and show it when people came over. "And here's a picture of the fish we ate that day..."

Tamara said...

HAHAHAHAAAA!!! He took a PHOTO?! TOO funny!!

Olga said...

Yes. We women suffer all sorts of humiliation in the name of reproduction...

It was pretty funny.

MrFisher said...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGGGH!!!!!!!

Cousin Shamus!!!!!

Polly P.I. said...

*using rib bone as toothpick*

Cousin Shamus was purdy darn tasty, too!

Marie said...

I'm in the minority here, but I think that fish looks delicious.

I've never gone to a restaurant so swanky that they color-coordinate your napkins. Was the food any good, Polly?

Blogchik said...

Speaking for myself, I'd eat that fish.

And I'd eat fish eyeballs, too, if ya double-dog-dared me. ;)

Jeff Meyerson said...

Looks like someone beat you to that one, Blogchik.

How about maraschino cherryballs?

Nancy said...

Okay, if it was that swanky, how much did you have to spend to get such a (ahem) delicacy?
