While in Strathmore, where it smelled of freshly shatted livestock shat - Tannis: "What is it, national let your cow out for a shit day?!"
Back in the office, toy testing - Lyna: "Elmo thinks your mom looks good."

You know it's gotten bad when the photolab informed me that there were no exposures on my 2nd roll of film taken during my photowalk, and I just shrug and walk away. If I were to remove myself from my body for a second, and emulate what my normal reaction would be: 1) SHUT UP MORON AT THE PHOTO COUNTER - YOU DON'T KNOW SQUAT AND YOU SCREWED UP MY FILM!!! or 2) WTF?!! GOD DAMN YOU YASHICA! I SHOULD TOSS YOU OUT LIKE LAST WEEK'S TRASH! or at least 3) obsessively try to dismantle the uptake mechanism in the camera to see what went wrong.
But nope, there's just complete apathy. Troubling...

For you unadventurous fooders out there, enjoy a DERICIOUS food feast in photos:
Onigiri (rice balls)
Beeru! (Sold at 7-Eleven)
Pork Ramen (ordered through a ticket vending machine)
One of hundreds of displays at an upscale-ish deli in Tokyo
Bento from said upscale deli
Pork Cutlet Ramen with Miso Soup
Menu for Sushi Breakfast at Tsukiji Fish Market
McHotDog?! There was a McPork too, but I forgot to photo it.
Nigiri Sushi (clockwise) - Crab Innards, Shako (Mantis Shrimp), Abalone, a Cannabis leaf(?!) and some exotic clam
FUGU (Puffer Fish) Sashimi
FUGU cooked in a hot broth
No readey Nihongo, Gaijin? No probrem. Prease order finger pointy.
The milk as MILKED. I'm so glad.
Udon! Oooo....don. I miss you.
Some Korean rice dish... there was no Engris on the menu, so I don't know what it was.
FUGU (Puffer Fish) cooked over hot stones.
Hope you enjoyed your visual feast. I know I sure enjoyed eating these things. Especially the abalone nigiri sushi. Wow, was that to seppuku for!

Alright, I'm hacking up a lung from this swine-flu or whatever virus has befallen me. For the 3rd night in a row, I'm going to bed before 11. CRAZY!

Off to Medicine Hat for the next few days. Maybe I'll liveblog my wild adventures while I'm there.

As promised, more photos from my cousin's wedding this past weekend. I'm not terribly happy with the photos of the ceremony portion because I opted for the reach of my 18-200mm Nikkor (which I am starting to hate more and more) rather than the speed and unbelievable sharpness of the 17-55mm f/2.8 Nikkor. But then I switched glass after the ceremony, and got much better results that I'm very happy with. Oh, I just realized I missed taking photos of the first dance because I was busy doing a round of prairie fires...
Obviously, I didn't take the last photo as I'm in it. My bro snapped this one for me. Alrighty, the Puk clan should be arriving for the weekend visit any minute now. Cheers,
