EoMEoTE #8: Something fishy

"Here's a story........ of a lovely lady,
Who was bringing up three very lovely giiiiirrrrrrllllls.
All of them had hair of gooooold--"

"Can you stop singing that song Jan? It's driving me crazy." Marcia sighed. "And besides, you better get this blindfold off me cos Chip is picking me up in half an hour, and you know I have cheerleading practice this afternoon... and all the girls voted me to be at the top of the pyramid."

Jan stiffened, as she felt a tear spring to her eye. "It's always Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" she wailed.

"What's wrong with you Jan?" Marcia asked with sisterly concern, cocking her head to one side as she tried to peer through the blindfold. "You've been acting weird ever since you singlehandedly ruined that family photo we took for Mom's anniversary."

Marcia sighed again before straightening up and brightening into a pearly smile. "Now I don't mean to be bossy, but exactly what kind of experiment will this be for the Science Fair? I still don't understand why I need to wear this blindfold anyway and why do you keep on insisting I call you Mr Blonde?"

Jan gently lifted Marcia's glossy mane of hair out of the way, tucking it gently behind her ear.

"Well I don't know why I came here tonight", Jan explained. "I got the feeling that something ain't right...I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair...And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs...Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am..."

Fried egg splattered with fish sauce and chilli oil, and garnished with coriander.

NB. Special thanks to VerucaSalt for the beautiful plate, brought all the way back from her recent trip to Japan. Domo arigatoo gozaimashita!

    Oh I love the splashing of fish sauce and chilli oil. I imagine this would go great with some wonton wrapped slightly baked or even an indonesian style roti. However with the fish sauce I wonder if a Vietnamese style bread roll would go down well...

    Cut plate, love how the bunny is sniffing away at the crush of the bread :)

    Hi Clare Eats - Yep, I love the plate. And it matches the rabbit-themed sushi platters I bought back from Japan too.

    lol. The Brady Bunch is a classic.

    Hi Saffron - Yes I was absolutely desirous of a crusty Vietnamese bread roll. Unfortunately this was a last minute whip-up so it was Helga's Soy & Linseed only, I'm afraid.

    I love my new plate. And yes, that bunny does seem rather curious (and er, hungry!).

    Hi Mrs T - It tasted great. I love fish sauce! Saffron was right though, it probably would've tasted even better on a Vietnamese-style baguette.

    And aw shucks, thanks.

    Yep, the Brady Bunch may be a classic, but Reservoir Dogs kicks its skinny blonde ass all over the place!! What a fabulous clash of cultures - when Bradys go bad. I love it, I love it.

    Hi Jeanne - lol. I agree wholeheatedly. Reservoir Dogs was fantastic.

    Glad you liked 'When Jan gets mad'. It kept me amused for a couple of hours when I realised the 'stuck in the middle with you' appropriateness!
