Going to a friend's apartment for dinner Saturday:
Ethan: Hey. Do you eat calves brain?
me: I cannot imagine why you would even ask me that.
me: I'm sorry... I didn't realize you were serious. No, I don't. The
idea of anything-brains is gross.
me: I don't think so. I don't know many people who have brains, let
alone eat them.
Ethan: I grew up eating it.
me: Is this an AHS thing?
It's a jewsih thing.
I'm cowed by the very idea.
Ethan: bahhh...bad pun.
me: It was moo-tivated by disgust.
me: I'm utterly grossed out by the idea.
Ethan: that's strange.
me: *Udderly, I should say.
I appreciate you dugs it, I suppose.
me: Well, diet is a grey matter.
There's no acownting for taste.
I'm moogling recipes tho, to see if there's something too it.
me: I cortex you the best recipes, if you like.
Ethan: I spinal cord you to stop being lame :-P
me: I'm not being lame. I'm being amoosing.
me: Googling seems to discount the idea that this is a common food. At
least among the goy. Interesting.
Oh god, people eat the tongue a lot.
Ethan: Of course.
You don't eat tongue?
me: Jesus, I've got to just go vegetarian.
Ethan: You seriously didn't know that people eat tongue?
me: I'd actually forgotten.
And was happy to have forgotten.
me: I like my meat depersonalized (deanimalphied?) and inscrutable.
If it resembles a body part, or has the words brains, testicles, hoof,
or snout in it, I don't want it.
Ethan: Tongue doesn't look like tongue.
me: I can't even eat pork butt.
Ethan: I don't eat pork.
me: Of course not. Tho it is, I understand, possible to eat kosher pork.
Ethan: only if its not from pig.
me: I thought it was all in the way it's prepared.
Ethan: the way it's prepared in the sense that it's prepared from pig
me: Oh, I thought it had to be blessed or something. It's odd you can eat
the brain of an animal, but god forbid you touch shellfish or swine.
Ethan: not really.
Brain is only strange for you becuase you never ate it.
me: No. As I said, I googled. It's strange in general.
Ethan: No it isn't.
me: Well. I suppose cooking up Waf and serving him with some haggis
wouldn't be unusual somewhere.
Ethan: Ooh, Haggis is delic.
me: I know actual Scots who find it repellant. Still, I always want to
try it each Burns Day.
(Which, as far as I can tell, is the Scottish attempt to have a Bloomsday)
Ethan: When i was in scotland with some friends, i had haggis, and one
of my companions had vegetarian haggis
it was sooo lame.
if you're going to havfe haggis, you go all the fucken way.
me: Yes. Of course.
me: Tho I'm now reconsidering dinner with you guys. If you're gonna
serve calf brains, then serve a lot of aperitifs first.
Ethan: Actually, i think we're serving lamb brains.
The recipe calls fro one calf brain or two lamb brains
me: Brain't saying I wouldn't try it, but pretty sure I'd gag a bit
just at the idea. It's all in the head, I realize.
aight, i'm sleepy bed time now.
me: Sheep well. So, should we bring anything for dinner Saturday? Ipecac? A stomach pump? Iocaine powder?
Inappropriate sharing, incomprehensible ramblings, uncalled-for hostility: yup, it's a blog.
