Hey Rach3! This is you on 12/19, sending a message to the future version of yourself, as reminder. 1) It is reasonable to use a relatively blunt knife to deskin a salmon, if a nice sharp one is unavailable. Also, the consumption of moderate quantities of delicious sake is perfectly acceptable in social occasions. However, the chronology of events is rather important; it is best to slice your fish before consuming the sake. 2) When you stop by the store tomorrow, do pick up some alcohol swabs, will you? I seem to have run out.
