Densetsu no Majikku Naito

FOOD disaster of the week: Shrimp Dijon. Shrimp sautéed in olive oil, in a sauce of mustard, sherry and cream, on a bed of couscous. Sounded good when I read the recipe. I like mustard sauces with seafood, and I like food cooked with sherry, which IMO is an under-appreciated ingredient. Unfortunately, the mustard was way too much, and drowned out everything else, olive oil, sherry, even the taste of the shrimp itself. So. I washed the stupid sauce off the shrimp, and ate them with the couscous. It was edible, but dull.

I'm batting about .500 with recipes nowadays, but this one was an just a stupid pop-up to infield.


I bought a bunch of the Viz Maison Ikkoku VHS tapes a while back, and I just finished the last one, which included episodes 41 and 42. Now I'm torn. Do I buy more of the damned Viz two-episodes-per-tape MI for [growl, gnash] US$29.95 each, or do I wait for the DVD's, which will probably take at least another five years to get up to ep. 42?

Maybe I'll get the second 'season' of Ranma 1/2 while I think about it.

Just checked Amazon to see if there were any Viz MI DVD's yet. Nope. Just Chinese bootlegs. Which I reported.

IF I CAN'T HAVE MI, NO ONE CAN HAVE MI! AVAST, YE SCURVY PIRATE SCUM! PREPARE TO BE BOARDED, MWAHAHAHA!

Mmmm, schadenfreude.

The left radical is 'person' (人), the right-hand radical used to be a form of 'spinning weight'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'two' and 'self/nose':  'Two people nose to nose conveying something.'.
