Recent AZN experience

So I tried some AZN food again last night. This is part of my plan to try new and different things (like AZN food and graphic design and Texas). We went to Fu King and I ordered an egg roll (because I had that good experience at my work Christmas party) and some chicken fried rice.
As you can tell, I was a little apprehensive. Here's what it looked like:
The egg rolls were pretty much mediocre and the chicken fried rice wasn't good at all. I even tried 4 different sauces thinking that would make it better. It didn't. I did have a bite of a delish crap and cream cheese thing. I don't even remember what it was called though. Then, I spilled soy sauce all over my pajamas...
LAME. My fortune : Remember three months from this date. Good things are in store for you. Hmmm... Well that will be March 20th. I'll try to keep that in mind.

Today I was told that all asian food is mediocre and people just like it because it's different. I think that might be true.

Allison. One day when you come to Nashville we will go to a place called Ru San's and you will have the BEST special fried rice you could ever imagine. Don't let this mediocrity ruin your good progress.

ya asian food can be pretty naff at times, and other times just down right barn-like. you gotta find a place that makes it fresh, using actual edible ingredients. then it is delish beyond the scope of delishiousdome.

how to enjoy AZN food....
1. drive to gainesville at lunch time and only lunch time
2. go to liquid ginger
3. sit in their INCREDIBLY soft and comfy booths
4. eat such delicacies as spicy cream shrimp and crispy chicken with lime sauce
5. call me because there is no reason someone i know should be eating at this restaurant without me

seriously. all time favorite place. it is so good i have a picture of the food saved on my computer. behold.

see i think those crab cheese things are horrible...
and the other things just have so much sodium in them... i feel like it sucks every single drop of liquid in my body up... so i usually feel gross afterwards... but ever now and again its fun and good... i mean if you like un-godly amounts of salt its good... i believe if you are going to eat at Fu King 1/2 of it is the experience of eating there... if you are just gonna have those fun little chinese boxes then get it from wherever... but i mean you gotta stay open to this azn stuff... you know what dale said about it and you?

Yes, Dale says I'm going to be a bad wife if I don't eat AZN.
