Hello yumyumtimtam!

I will, a bit late, give my version of the two questions you originally asked.

For us in Sweden, when we learn English in school (obligatory here in Sweden) we learn to abbrevieate the Weekdays with THREE letters all the way.

So a Swede would write Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun in English.

The oysterstory was very interesting but since Sweden is not a big oyster/mussels-eating country, I had never heard of it.

For us oysters are more of a delicasy rather then everyday food. The "finer people" eat them.

Shellfish such as shrimps and crayfish are much more common and eaten a lot.
We even have a crayfish celebration where we gather around, some have fished their own crayfish and have a feedingfrenzy and tend to get as drunk as possible!

Yeah, we moslty use the crayfish party for an excuse to get extremely drunk!
I personally think only our midsummerfestvial is the only day where we actually get even more drunk.

Sometimes I think the russians learned their alcohol-habits from us swedes...


Is it crazy to dream of a Ferrari of your own?

Yes, you are right!

I see.
I didn't believe the doctor but he was right too!
He was a doctor but joking too much... so I didn't take it seriously.

You can probably only get New Zealand Green Lip mussels in Japan (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ミドリイガイ属). Ours are small and black; more like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ish_market.jpg
and they have a mild, creamy taste. I like to steam them with a little wine and olive oil, and eat them with nothing but some bread. Like sakemushi clams!
Do you like seafood much, yumyum?
Thank you for all the information!
Interesting!

When I get shellfish, I freez them first.

Yes,I like seafood. I like seavegetable (seaweed) a lot!
Do you know nori(a kind of seavegetable) columbine-san?

Quote:
Wow, that's mean. On the other hand, the supermarket should have just been honest that it sold bad oysters.
Yeah...when I heard this story... I was not happy... cos I like none of them.

Your doctor must be an interesting person. My doctor always seems very serious. She's a little scary sometimes, but she's a nice person really.

Yes, I know what nori is. I like it a lot too! When I lived in Oxford i was able to buy it in little packets for a snack, but now I live in the countryside, that kind of flavoured nori is hard to find. :< All I can get is kombu or nori for making sushi.

I met a few Swedish people and most of them speak English very very well.

The first Swedish people I met...3 girls, backpackers totally lost at the station.
They were trying to talk to the train people (how do you call them? they are working near the ticket machines)...but there were none could speak English there...

When I said "May I help you?"
They went like... "oh pleeeeeeez." "oh my!" screaming!

You know what? I was waiting for a friend from England at the station, but I got 4 foreign backpackers to bring back to my apartment that day.

and now, my workmates are Swedish too!

He wasn't interesting, you know...his jokes were terrible!
I like fun people, but I didn't enjoy his joke...so I didnt go back there.

You are lucky to have a nice doctor.
It's not easy to find a good doctor in Japan... maybe not only in my country, but... right now Im searching for a good dentist but haven't found any yet...

You can get soysauce right?

put a little bit of soysauce on the nori for sushi, then put it in the toaster!
you can put sesami oil too!

you can get crunchy nori
fresh from the toaster!

I'm really lucky; my doctor is very good. I get all my inoculations for free!
I went to the dentist in Japan once, because I thought I'd lost a filling (じゅうてん?) and I was surprised because there was only one treatment room, and everyone was in it all at the same time. Is that common? In England, you always go by yourself into a private room for treatment.

Put the nori in the toaster? Oooh, that's a great idea! I'll try it. Thank you!
