"Yuck. No. Tobiko was not meant for exfoliating."

No one googled "sushi spa" yet, did you?

This thread got #2 billing in that search as of this post. Woohoo! We're number 2!

I wonder if they'll wrap me in sticky rice.

Tobiko even exfoliate? I'd guess that the tobiko would just smush and rub into the skin as opposed to stripping off the skin.

What is tobiko, anyway?

Tobiko is that orange-colored fish-egg stuff that they put on some types of sushi.

"It puts the tobiko on its skin..."

Or else it gets the hose again.

Nice one.

I know some of you know, but it might be interesting to the rest of you that, in the not-too-distant-past, "Silence of the Lambs" was made into a musical.

Cuh-reepy? Yeah. Just a little.
Now I'm picturing...

a dance number in which "Chianti" is mispronounced over and over again...

...And a major duet entitled "Quid Pro Quo" :)

I think I'm gonna let my signature come quite in handy here:
-There's someone in my head, but it's not me.-
And from that, this...

The combination of the subject matter and the signature there immediatly brought this to mind...
Ahh, good ol' PLIF...
....and the Google ad says.

..."Want Great Skin?"
Oh, come on

Who would not look forward to being rubbed all over with raw fish, not to mention paying hundreds of dollars a day for the experience? Sure, it seems sick now, but in ten years all the celebrities and divas will be doing it, and then you will just feel silly for not taking it seriously.

I am trying to decide which is more annoying, living with the slashes or avoiding the use of apostrophes. The jury is still out. In the meantime, I can occupy myself trying to figure out what Gratis Hypotheek Advies and Recreatie Villas are. Some kind of free consultation for the first one, I think; probably an ad for a sushi spa on the second.

It could work

They would wrap you in seaweed, drop you in a fish tank, and give you a ten minute all-you-can-eat feeding frenzy for a modest fee. (If you want an exfoliant, they could slip in a few piranha.) All followed by a shiatsu massage and a fortune cookie. See? This is practically a viable business proposal already!

I wonder what she really said?
Posted by Somnambulist on Tue, 06/21/2005 - 4:45pm.
She might have said "Sushi spot".

Also; for the spa, you could have wahabi aromatherapy... to open the sinuses and whatnot... sashimi could be used in place of cucumbers on the eyes... an Iron Chef could run out and give you a quick (albeit crispy) tan with a blowtorch...
Posted by shelley on Wed, 06/22/2005 - 3:41pm.
hey what's up all?
I would think she probably said sushi bar... Either way it's disgusting.. And even though chances are all the celebs will be doing it, it'll still seem grodie..
Posted by Somnambulist on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 5:58am.
I suppose it depends on the accent... if she had a Boston accent, it could have been sushi bar (baa), and if she had a southern accent, it could have been sushi spot (spah)...

I think I'm putting too much thought into this.
Posted by Matt on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 7:30am.
Or maybe you're just starting to think like the rest of us. Over-thinking situations and making long, rambling conjectures, tangenting into humorous, potentially possible situations and interactions with other people is kind of a trait of this place.

For some, anyway.
Posted by shelley on Thu, 06/23/2005 - 9:03am.
Up in Alberta it would probably be bar.. but you're right it would definitely depend on the accent..
Posted by Matt on Tue, 06/21/2005 - 10:27pm.
Just so long as we all realize that Som meant "wasabi," I think we are fine. And yes, the greenish, mustard-like stuff works exceedingly well for opening the sinuses, not to mention the tear ducts, for those of us who consider jalapenos "finger food" and scoff at jars of salsa supposedly rated "hot," Daves Insanity Salsa notwithstanding.

Seriously, that stuff made me wish I was somewhere else after just two chips worth of dipping.
You need...
Posted by paul on Wed, 06/22/2005 - 10:20am.
...steff's Pissed Off Salsa!
You are correct, sir!
Posted by Somnambulist on Wed, 06/22/2005 - 5:27am.
A slight mental slip on my part; wasabi = evil mustard, wahabi (or wahhabi) = Islamic religious sect... which leads me to believe that I may need to start easing back on the cultural studies... or perhaps find a good Japanese restaurant around here somewhere...
I figured you must have meant
Posted by dave on Fri, 07/01/2005 - 4:26am.
I figured you must have meant wasabi, though wahabi opening up the sinuses could be an interesting experience
