Seaweed salad + honey roll (sweet potato, banana, cucumber, carrots, cream cheese) and shrimp tempura roll with avocado & cucumber, both wrapped in multi-grain rice @ Genki-ya in Brookline last night. I know some people get offended by fusion sushi/bastardized Japanese food in general, but I feel as long as restaurants don’t try to treat it as authentic (& Genki-ya’s whole selling point is that it’s fusion/vegetarian-friendly) then there isn’t a problem. I get more bothered when food that’s blatantly “American” gets passed off as an ethnic identity (yeah, I’m looking at all the people who only know Chinese food as greasy midnight take-out and General Tso’s chicken).
Had to go into work early today to help facilitate a sexual rehabilitation workshop for women who get thrown into premature menopause after ovarian surgery. It involved a lot of playing with vibrators and deep relaxation exercises. (There are worse ways to get paid for a Saturday morning.)
