Nuttin' much interesting to talk about this weekend. Jerry made tasty rice balls with salmon-ginger filling for Noir Night on Sunday; I got to eat one and say hello to Mel, Sarah, & Glenn & Cara before Bryree showed up and we ran off to D&D at Jeff's. It was a suitable start for a horror/fantasy campaign -- bustin' out of the asylum and hiding out in the haunted mansion on the moors.

I want to mention that shiso fumi furikake is a super-yum condiment for rice balls. Shiso is a plant, also known as the beefsteak plant, and furikake is "seasoning for leftover rice". I don't know what "fumi" means. I'm guessing maybe "flavor", but I'm not sure. In any case, it's good stuff.

Now I have to collect references for my grant proposal. *sigh*
