Raw Fish and Disappointment

My first experience with sushi! Judges ruling: Good, flavorful, not to die for, a little over priced. So what is all the hype about eating raw fish?

It was a lot of fun to sit there and watch the little conveyor belt of sushi dishes come gliding by. Some of the dishes looked pretty interesting.

We came home and watched Eragon. Why didn't Peter Jackson direct this?!? It is such a good book, but Director Stefen Fangmeier made the unfortunate decision to truncate an epic book/movie into 1 hour and 40 minutes. LOTR proved that audiences were up to the rigors of and could withstand a 2.5 hour movie and that true fans of literary fantasy would even dedicate 3.5 hours to the extended versions of the movies.

Eragon the movie did not live up to the book. So few movies do. I was slightly disappointed in the resulting movie.
