* Just choking around, as we used to say in my crypto-racist hometown. Most of you aren’t bastards at all!
Stavros why so apologetic!
“Most of you aren’t bastards at all!”
You should have said:
“Most of you assholes aren’t bastards at all!
Have some more beer – maybe we’ll have to ship you some Moosehead or a good BC Microbrew 🙂 – you’re getting too mellow there guy! 🙂
Well, I just might have my self a few this evening, DD, seeing as tomorrow is a public holiday and all. My palate is so ravaged by kimchi and Korean beer, though, that quality beer might well be wasted on me.
Also, I am a complete bastard, and I admit this freely, and since I am so fond of myself, it follows (er, kinda) that calling someone a bastard is a sign of great affection!
So there you go.
So if “Bastard” is a term of endearment, clearly “Not a bastard at all” is an insult of the highest order.
How dare you make such an accusation, you scally-wretched fishmonger, even if it’s utterly true?
Also: Kimchi. Eeeewww.
I mean, I can dig the Korean BBQ, and even tolerate that wierd, spongy deep-fried tofu (a food that ought to vanish in a puff of logic, a la NetHack), but kimchi?
Stop confusing me, arto!
Also : I love kimchi with a love pure and true. Yes, I’ve drunk the kool-aid, and am a convert. It is god’s own food.
Wrap a chunk of fresh, still-warm tofu in a wad of kimchi (even better, kimchi thats been briefly sauteed in a little sesame oil)? That’s some kinda delicious, I’m telling ya.
Old kimchi, the stinky, fermented kind, or new, still crunchy-leafed, just-made kimchi, I don’t care. Busan style kimchi, with oyster in? Bring it on!
Mul kimchi, pal-do kimchi, whatever. There are a million kinds, and they’re all good. I’ve even taken to dipping kimchi in my beer, then eating it. The resultant flavoring of the beer, particularly if you’re a red-eye, ceasar, bloody mary fan like me, is exquisite!
I am the wonderchicken, and I am a kimchi addict.
But it does tend to make foods more…delicate…in flavour a little harder to appreciate. Not subtle.
But then, neither am I.
