The Off Topic Thread  

post #1 of 304
Thread Starter 
Anything that doesn't fit into any particular thread has a home here. Random words of wisdom and anything totally off the wall . . . just post it here.

I'll start by saying just about anything with potatoes, chiles and/or garlic is bound to be great. Jazz is great. Noodles are a passion of mine. And the start of rap music coincides with the fast degradation of Earth's ozone layer.

Any off-topic words from anybody else?

I remember when rap was good and you didn't have to drive the mandatory Hummer to have street cred.

My surname is Scottish, and when I was a kid my parents took us to Scotland.

Wonderful place, but too bad I wasn't old enough to appreciate the whisky yet.

The fish and chips in a little place in Edinburgh were fantastic.

Yeah, but Liam Neeson in a kilt a la "Rob Roy" was a wonder to behold!:)
I guess that was the year of movies with men in skirts!

Camping on an Adirondack lake, waking up in the dewey cool of the morning- enjoying that first cup of coffee as the sun comes up and I shake out my stiff joints-that's heaven in my book.

Kimchi Crazy!!!

Kimchi is my new favorite. The wife and I have been going to this Korean place for these cast iron hot pots....the best part of the meal is the 8 or 10 small plates of various pickles that are set out. The chiles in nearly everything start some kind of dopamine action or something that becomes addictive. Although, when talking about food "addictive" is a strong word, so we'll just say that the kimchi is "essential" to the meal. I get the sense that most koreans could not imagine their cuisine without it. The excitement and speed with which our servers refill our kimchi bowl when they see two plain looking caucasian people scarfing it down, is not lost on us.

Ever have really chaotic dreams where you wake up and it takes a while to sort your head out?

Last night it was a dream where I had a really nice motorcycle, but any time it started running smooth something would fall apart on it. Over and over. Glad I woke up from that, and even still, took a while to shake it off. :confused:

RE: The Last Resort

I used to live in a little town back in the 70s'. A small dusty mill town with only a couple of restaurants all of which were bad. 2 supermarkets. A couple of bars all of which were rough- take your chances with the bikers or take your chances with the rednecks.. A crummy municipal golf course that was cheap enough to overcome its lack of finesse. I lived in an apartment that was in the older part of town for $50.00/ month. Got around on a bicycle and everybody thought I was nut for not owning a pick up truck. I could go 5 minutes in any direction and be out in the woods with nobody around. We called it Paradise...


The name of this forgotten gem?

Bend, Oregon.
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

Cool, Peachcreek!

I've visited Bend starting in '81. There's a HUGE difference here now, but I say it's still close to paradise :crazy:

Dreams are pretty crazy things. I've grown up with night terrors my whole life and have spent countless hours trying to sort the dream out. If you're into over analyzing stuff, your dream is probably saying that before moving on to something else, you should fix a problem at hand.

My wife is korean and I have been fortunate enough to be able to learn from her mother.

I had to laugh about what you said about the servers in the Korean restaurant. If we go to a Korean restaurant they all talk about the white guy who eats everything and uses chopsticks better than his wife.
