Yum!  I would have eaten any of those fabulous choices.  But, Merly, you didn't eat your birthday hijiki!   :laugh: 


Gorgeous beloveds, gorgeous breakfasts, gorgeous bilder, gorgeous Brokiebration!

Gorgeous font, too, Elle!  8)

You have sharp eyes.  Yes, me no big hijiki fan.  ::)

It was a lot of fun! Jenny and Meryl and I had a blast!

Thank you all, Mikaela, Mouk, Kelda, Belbb, Elle-issima, Penthesilea (where can I get that cake? Yum!)

Thank you most of all, Meryl--as, I certainly AM 'so assimilated'--by the way, did the Old Lady in Candide mention whether she had lost the left or the right buttock? Just wondering....

(--also by the way--shame!-- I've never before heard of 'hijiki'--now I must go to wikipedia and the dictionary. How do you say 'hijiki' in French? Hah!)

Beats me.  How do you say it in English?  :)  I think it's Japanese, a kind of seaweed - or sea vegetable, as is more "correct" these days.  It's not my favorite kind of sea vegetable, but I would eat it for the minerals in it.  :)

We live in a wonderful new world of information access!

Hijiki
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijiki

"--Hijiki or Hiziki (Hizikia fusiformes) is a brown sea vegetable growing wild on rocky coastlines around Japan, Korea, and China. Its two names, which are examples of ateji, mean deer-tail grass and sheep-nest grass respectively.--"

Go to the English-French Translator Engine, and you get:

l'herbe de queue de cerf et l'herbe de nid de mouton

I love it!

I guess near the end of the meal, Meryl could have said, "All we got left is sheep-nest grass..."

JACK winces, too.

JACK:
Well, we go to do somethin' 'bout this food situation. Maybe I'll shoot one of the Hajiki.

ENNIS:
What if Aquirre finds out, Huh? We're supposed to guard the Hajiki, not eat 'em.

JACK:
What's the matter with you? There's a thousand of 'em.

ENNIS:
I'll stick with beans.

JACK:
Well, I won't.

.........

Twenty yards away, TWO CHILEAN HAJIKIHERDERS are looking just as glum at the huge mixed herd, gesturing wildly.

ENNIS:
Well, what're we supposed to do now, Huh?

JACK:
Get on in there...untangle them Chilean HAJIKI outa ours, I guess.



JACK:
Damn, half the goddamn paint brands are wore off.



....

JACK in a better mood now, is doodling on his harmonica.

ENNIS (tolerant, smiles):
You'll run them HAJIKI off again if you don't quiet down.

JACK keeps playing.

Happy, happy birthday!!!


I love all these photos!  Such thorough, step-by-step documentation!  Fantastic! 8)

It feels like we were all right there with you.  And, it looks like you had a really lovely visit.
