varropdx: (Shut the ##%$% up)
I ended up much lighter yesterday afternoon, and needed some nourishment afterward.

Amy and donated blood yesterday morning; I felt better after this donation than I had in the past, for some reason. It didn't wipe me out - hopefully my body is in better shape, even though I haven't lost much weight.

After the blood donation, I went to the lady who cuts my hair in a small Chinese strip mall in SE Portland. I'm very particular about who cuts my hair - I found her three years ago or so when my office was down the street from her salon, and liked the way she worked, and the fact that a plain haircut is only $8.

We then went over to the Chinese grocery next door. Amy and I had a little bit of a sweet tooth, so among the other curiosities of the store such as live crayfish and eels, durians (stored in the freezer so they don't smell like...well, durians), and dried seafood snacks were these:




We had to get them. A product that had such a delightful Engrish name had to be sampled!

The verdict - fairly tasty shortbread cookies, with a nutty taste - explained by the crushed almonds that were the second ingredient listed. No crab whatsoever - the crabs were embossed on the cookies themselves. Additional Engrish was found on the "instructions": "Open the package and eating."
