    sashimi = raw fish, typically ahi (blue fin tuna) that when served with rice in decorative presentations is then called sushi. :p

    dude, I grew up in Hawaii... sashimi is a staple food here!

    Nothing like catching ulua and slicing it up right there on the beach with a small thing of shoyu for flavor! YUM!

    Your "other" meaning is well known too... but I won't mention THAT here - you tryin' to get me in trouble?!?!? lol!

    LOL! I just mean that sashimi means Bad cook in English :p Don't know what ya thinking tho LoL...

    Hey I say the same thing about Corono beer. Which means Expired beer..coors also fits into this saying too.

    :D

    Will there be runes laying around to the story home? or should I go and mark one now?

    hehe! okay... will leave that _other_ meaning a mystery!


    Right now there are free runes on one of the NVG vendors.

    I'll be dropping runes at gates/banks during the day before the event whilst spamming a little about the event.

    There may also be someone making gates... still dunno if he will be available. :)

    sidebar: took my fisher out last night... got some nets. :)

    Tuna? Darn, here the staple sashimi is salmon. I much prefer tuna, though. Especially red tuna. Mmmm, maguro. Mind lately I've been liking nigiri over sashimi and maki. I've noticed here that white people like maki the most... it's like there is this thing about smooshing things together that appeals to them (the hamburger/taco/sub sandwich notion). Silly people!

    I'm having Halloweeny celebrations on the 30th so I doubt I can come, but have fun nonetheless.

    If you can make it is good - if you cannot is okay. :) Is all good... g'ood!


    On a sashimi note... I just like mine plain. The less "ribboning" in the ahi, the better it is. I've been known to pay upwards of $30/lb for really GOOD sashimi! The kind that just melts in your mouth when it touches your tongue....

    oh geez.. now I'm hungry!

    With just a little bit of a delay in starting time, the Spooktacular Story Night was great fun!

    First, Kirth Dorn started off with a tale about the Blight of Yew, and how it affected one old woman who used to live there.

    Then EM Fiorella gave us a tale not many would ever hear.... about her first meeting with her Boss!

    After a bit, WackyWizzard shared a bittersweet tale of departure and karma mixed with luck.

    And finally, Sunrise thrilled all with a the tale of a glorious hunt - with a twist.

    Some other people arrived, refusing to tell a tale - but enjoying the company (and some just visiting the vendors). Everyone who came in got a small goodie bag (EM Fiorella just got some lollipops...)

    Below are some images of the attendees.

    Sunrise won the first place prize of 250k gold
    WackyWizzard got the second place prize of 150k gold
    the third place prize goes back into the NVG coffers for more events to come




    Have a safe Halloween everyone! Don't eat too much candy (sugar induced turrets is most distracting!).
