Not Fish, Food, and Fish

After writing a big ol' paper on sushi last semester, I know more than I ever thought I would about sushi. However, that does not mean that I am a fan of the American sushi (or, Sushi American Style) which Dean & DeLuca has now started selling. If I wanted a BLT, I would get a BLT. You have my permission to buy whatever you want, but my humble opinion (which I am always more than happy to share) is that it don't work no good for me.

Ze French are known for a lot of things. I believe I heard something about them being into cooking. (Tell me if I'm wrong about that.) Anywho, superstar Alain Ducasse says that he believes that French women are not passing down their cooking skills to their daughters any longer. This is making the art of French cooking slowly disappear.

In Library News . . .

Two blog posts that were published mere days apart were so similar it was freaky. I have no idea of the posts were influenced by each other or there were talks. Who knows? They are both really insightful and both mention fish! I've been reading In the Library with the Lead Pipe since the beginning, so I'm a fan. This post talks about how a commencement speech by David Foster Wallace which mentions fish in water led Sara Seely to comparing fish-in-water with librarians.

So along comes a post in my Google feed thing about librarians and fish, but it comes from Norway. Librarian 1.5 is a blog written by librarian Thomas Brevik of the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy. His librarian-as-fish inspiration comes from an article on information literacy from the Norwegian Science Library blog. (Note: The post is in Norwegian and English, so you might need a translator.) Anywho, Thomas' posts are in English so you should check it out.
