I forgot a crucial detail from yesterday! I finally got around to trying natto. It's fermented soybeans, often eaten with rice. Basically, if Satan gave you magical, suspiciously gooey beans, these would be it. They're really bitter and strong tasting and apparently an acquired taste. My Japanese teacher from home also likes them but I'm not sure if she actually likes them or is just showing off her ability to tolerate them.
That's it. xD
