not all that mongolian to me

So I went to mongolian grill for lunch today, with a few colleagues, to properly welcome our new immediate supervisor and say farewell to my old supervisor who got promoted (I’ll miss him a lot, he was really cool and the first person I’d met at the company who was really a geek like me and that I could actually relate to) and one of my colleagues who moved to a different building and effectively got promoted there too.

I…don’t really think that’s how they eat in Mongolia. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the food is delicious, but here’s how it works: You literally get a bowl, put some rice or noodles in it, then move down the buffet and put some vegetables in it; the choice is yours, of course-all kinds of veggies are there-and then move down to the meats. Finally, after you’ve loaded up your bowl with veggies and meat, you can get your sauces; which are definitely critical to the flavor. Then you put the whole lot on a shelf and they grill the whole thing for you. Awesome, right? Definitely. Tasty. But something tells me that it’s not how it’s traditionally done in Mongolia.

In other news, I wonder how difficult it would be to make this paper model of Serenity. It’s definitely pretty. Shame the instructions are in spanish-I studied spanish for a while, maybe I could plod through them…

Anyway, in today’s more horrific news, BoingBoing tells me what to do if my eye pops out of its socket. Gross, and yes, it made me shudder, but I suppose I’m glad I know?


Oh yeah, PS – Beware the Ides of March.

    re: Mongolia. Very much like it, except you gather around a grill and carve bits off a sheep’s head in the center of the table 😉

    P.S. The globe luxation comic was priceless.

    See, I imagined that shrimp couldn’t possibly be incredibly common in Mongolia, even though they’re abundant at Mongolian Grill. Sheep’s head, eh? Tasty? O_o
