FELICIA DAY: Hello everybody.
Felicia Day here.
It is Flog time.
I know what that means, English people.
This week I am cooking again but first, a reminder.
I'm going to be at Vid-Con next week and I
need you guys' help.
I've decided to do a Flog show from there but I want to ask
all my fans one question.
The question is, what is that question going to be?
Que?
Please leave your clever suggestions in the comments
and I will integrate the winning one
into the whole segment.
And I'll send you something free.
Ah!
See!
Now you're typing.
I understand you people so well.
All right.
It's time for Fave Five.
Now.
See.
I was going to say now.
I didn't say now.
No, I just said it three times.
Number one, Russian people know how to make purses well
out of felt.
Or at least this Etsy based Krukru Studios is.
For Doctor Who fans, they make this amazing Dalek purse.
But I ordered this reel to reel purse!
How cool is this thing?
Look!
It's got pockets.
I can put my reel in here.
Wacka, wacka.
The cool thing was that it came in this box with a lot of
Russian writing around the sides but I forgot I ordered
it so I thought it was some sort of terrorist thing.
But it wasn't.
It was just a purse I forgot I ordered.
Russians aren't terrorists anyway, are they?
Hmm.
I'm stupid.
Number two this week was linked to me by my friend
Jason Bergman.
It's a website called Fan Write Fridays that's for
people who want to learn how to write comic books.
Every week you get an assignment.
You get six days to write six to eight pages of your comic,
and then you post them on the forums for other people to
give feedback on.
I think it's a really awesome idea to create a safe,
creative environment for people on the internet.
On another serious self-help note, number three is a recipe
for unicorn poop.
Viewer BeanDemon linked it to me.
See this is why I love you guys giving me suggestions.

Number four is an iOS game that I really enjoy called
Rune Raiders.
It's a turn-based strategy game where you hire heroes,
level them up, and then hope they're in the right
configuration as you proceed step by step
to defeat your enemies.
I have this theory that playing strategy games helps
you improve your work process by organizing your brain.
I justify a lot of video game playing like this so don't you
dare contradict me with science.
Scientist commenter peoples.
Lastly, I decided to clean my house up after a year of
neglect, and having my priorities straight, I
organized my dice collection.
Look.
I went to the craft store and I bought little boxes for each
color and then I organized them by color.
This is my fire mage, and then we've got my ice, and then
we've got the warlock which is purple.
Am I missing any?
No, don't tell me because then I'll have to
buy more little boxes.
I'll have to get more little boxes.
Yes!
In our segment this week, me and Robin try to cook sushi.
How's it go?
Not well.

Hey we're back with Robin.
ROBIN THORSEN: Hey.
FELICIA DAY: Hi.
ROBIN THORSEN: Hi.
FELICIA DAY: And we're going to make sushi today because
neither of us have ever done that.
ROBIN THORSEN: Nope.
FELICIA DAY: I found this really cool blog on
Marisabaggett.com, and the name of her blog is In the
Kitchen with a Southern Sushi Chef, which I
thought was kind of cool.
ROBIN THORSEN: We are making tuna sushi roll
with bacon and apples.
We have some nori, some apples, some scallions, dried
apples, sushi rice, bacon, and our tuna.
FELICIA DAY: We need to cut the tuna into quarter inch
wide strips.
Whenever you touch the sushi rice, you
need to put your fingers--
we should probably wash our hands, right?
Always be sanitary.
We're going to take the rice as instructed here and we're
going to put it on here.
But we got to dip our hands in here.
ROBIN THORSEN: Dip it.
Let's pound.
FELICIA DAY: Let's try to aspire--
ROBIN THORSEN: To be like the southern sushi chef.
FELICIA DAY: We can pat down anything together.
ROBIN THORSEN: All right.
FELICIA DAY: Oh, that is handy to have a rag here.
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah, you're welcome for that idea.
Flip seaweed over.
FELICIA DAY: How is that going to work?
OK.
Flip it over.
ROBIN THORSEN: One, two, three.

FELICIA DAY: No!
Wait!
Listen.
How is this not going to stick?
Shouldn't this be on this thing?
ROBIN THORSEN: Not yet.
No.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
So this is this.
So let's just put this on top of here.
Just in case.
Because eventually--
ROBIN THORSEN: And then you're going to flip it?
FELICIA DAY: No.
I don't think we should do this.
ROBIN THORSEN: What are you talking about?
So we lift this up.
FELICIA DAY: This is not a good deal.
It's going to stick.
How is it not going to stick on there?
ROBIN THORSEN: Hold on.
And then just solidify the fact that we're doing.
FELICIA DAY: Why are you patting it on there?
ROBIN THORSEN: So now what we're going to do is place the
tuna like this.
FELICIA DAY: And that horizontal in the
middle of the nori.
And it says to make sure it extends to both
edges of the nori.
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah.
Bacon.
FELICIA DAY: Bacon.
So you can cut it into little pieces--
ROBIN THORSEN: Or use the strips.
FELICIA DAY: But I was like let's just use strips.
And it says one piece.
I want three.
ROBIN THORSEN: All right.
I think maybe not use all that apple.
That just seems like a lot of apple.
FELICIA DAY: You're supposed to taste stuff as you go
along, right?
I like to just save it for the end.
There's a lot of vinegar in that.

ROBIN THORSEN: Now let's roll it.
FELICIA DAY: All right.
ROBIN THORSEN: OK.
FELICIA DAY: Oh my god.
ROBIN THORSEN: Oh, fu-- shit.
FELICIA DAY: Keep going.
Keep going.
Just keep going.
Shove it.
Now wonder sushi chefs have such small-- eh--
ROBIN THORSEN: I don't know.
FELICIA DAY: No wonder sushi chefs have such soft hands.
I don't know what I was going to say there.
ROBIN THORSEN: This is a mean roll.
Look how mondo that is!

FELICIA DAY: It's a burrito.
ROBIN THORSEN: It is.
It's a burrito roll.
Eh, OK.
FELICIA DAY: Now we need to use the bamboo mat and form
this properly.
The finishing move.
It's like when you hairspray your bangs.
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah.
OK.
I think--
FELICIA DAY: I think that's good.
ROBIN THORSEN: All right.
FELICIA DAY: All right.
Look at that.
What!
ROBIN THORSEN: Mondo roll.
FELICIA DAY: Mondo roll.
ROBIN THORSEN: OK.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
So we need to cut it in six pieces.
You want some bacon?
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah.
Crunchy.
FELICIA DAY: Always make extra bacon.
ROBIN THORSEN: She said do this, and then do this.
To knock the water down.

I feel confident.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
Root chug, chug!
We need like a finishing zsa-zsu.
ROBIN THORSEN: I'm sorry?
No.
That's exactly what she said not to do.
FELICIA DAY: Really?
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah.
She said cut it like like you're cutting.
FELICIA DAY: As far as ingredients go I want all
these in my mouth.
ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah.
Look at this.
FELICIA DAY: I mean, this is like, two inches tall.
This is not how you normally buy sushi.
At the Robin and Felicia sushi shop you get value.

If you make your own, just post your pictures.
ROBIN THORSEN: Let's see if you can beat us too.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah!
Let's see if you can beat us!
First try.
First-timers.
You want to eat a piece?
ROBIN THORSEN: OK.
FELICIA DAY: You want chopsticks?
ROBIN THORSEN: Do you have them?
FELICIA DAY: No.
See better with the extra bacon.
All right.
Look.
ROBIN THORSEN: Down the hatch.
FELICIA DAY: [INAUDIBLE].

ROBIN THORSEN: It's actually pretty good.
FELICIA DAY: So thanks to Marissa Baggett for letting me
use her Southern Sushi Chef recipe.
See you later!

And check out Geek and Sundry bonus Thursday this week when
we upload an extra video of me and robin
cooking dessert sushi.
Don't get spoiled.
It won't happen often.
All right.
Our question of note from Lord Michael who asks, I heard you
could freestyle rap.
Can you?
Dear Lord Michael, I'm not sure where you heard that.
[HIP HOP MUSIC]
Yo, yo, yo--
I'm Felicia Day and here's what I gotta say.
I'm in my garden.
Here we don't be cardin'.
You come see flowers.
This gives you powers.
Yo, whatev!

Here's a blueberry on blueberry.
It's two--
I can't do this.
OK.
But no, I can't.
Sincerely, Felicia Day.
OK Lord Michael, your letter is on its way.
All right.
That's our show this week.
