Shrimp heads and busted shoes
Wes and randall shared a giant boat. Juju had the veggie sushi plate and I had the volcano roll and an order of amaebi (sweet shrimp). When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised, the heads had been tempura fried. I secretly love it, but I am never quite sure what is the right ettiquitte, or how one is supposed to eat it. I mean, how much is even edible?
Growing up chinese i've seen many a plate of shrimp served with heads on and i've seen patrons (myself included) rip the head off, put the end in their mouth and suck all the bits out. But I also know that when we were in japan rika thought I was weird for eating the heads. But here we were in a japanese restaurant and I was being served the heads (which were much larger than normal shrimp). And no, it wasn't decoration, it came with the tempura dipping sauce.
during dinner my shoe broke (cheap as all hell $1 flip-flops from target that i am still baffled by a) how long they've lasted and b) my ability to wear them to work, that is how much i don't care), so afterwards the four of us went to target.
going to the store with a group of people is always kind of fun to me. as long as there's no agenda and no one is in a hurry. it is, in my opinion, not done often enough. i mean, who meets up to hang out at a store? people meet up to hang out at the mall, but rarely will they go everyday shopping together. i ridiculously enjoyed myself.
sadly, it is (according to the national economic time clock) no longer summer and is now back to school time. so there are no more fun flip flops. just clearance on the leftovers. i managed to find a decent pair. although not nearly as good as the ones i got for a dollar. i knew i should have stocked up.
also on a related note: does anyone else find it weird that it wasn't even the end of july and you couldn't get a) barbecue equipment or b) flip-flops or c) shorts ??? isn't it a little odd that all that stuff gets pushed out of the stores mid-july in order for them to fit the back to school fall stuff in????

I've managed to save up roughly $76465 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the market is stable or do you think that home prices will decrease by a lot?
