Yep, this is the "official" sticky rice. A lot of folks who aren't used to Asian food call regular steamed rice, sticky rice because they compare it to that crap sold in boxes in the stores.

You can also shortcut sticky rice in the microwave if pressed for time.
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.
