oh! i almost forgot - i almost ate an oyster today. i'm a very finicky eater of food, and i do not in any way eat "sea food" (i hate that term - how about some sea food along with some land food, mmmm!), so ALMOST eating an oyster was totally noteworthy.
i was at a chinese lunch buffet and they had this whole container with cooked oysters. i've never seen one before and the shells actually shimmered, and there were no chicken dishes, only pork, shrimp and oysters and i eat none of those things, so my lunch was really limited to some noodles, but anyway, the shells shimmered and so i put one on my plate to contemplate eating.
of course, i couldn't, once i saw it up close. have you SEEN a cooked oyster up close? it's so scary, and so definitely a cooked little former-living-thing... ugh. uuuughhhh. so i stared at it for a minute and then scooped it over onto a different plate.
i don't understand "sea food," in any form. i don't eat fish (the smell, raaaaah, and the fishy taste, and the texture... raaaaah), but it's all the other stuff that creeps me out in particular. like eels - hello, they eat CRAP and are slimy, don't eat eels. lobsters and crabs and crayfish - whyyyyy? they're crazy little crawly thingies with lots of legs and shells and whyyyy? nooo. and raw dead fishies... noooo.
haha. it's late. i'm obviously not fit for being allowed to type anything. oh well.
do you like sea food? and if you do, how do you keep from not freaking out a bit when seeing it up close? haha.
so, what is the craziest thing you've eaten? see, when i was a kid i ate some creepy things, but only because my dad's from bosnia and thus will eat anything (aaaanything. ughhhh). like, i've cracked ribs and sucked out the marrow. and i LIKED it. i was, like, 8 years old. and i've eaten crayfish and eel. and emu.
food. it's weeeeeird, man. and oysters? UUUUUUGH!!!
