I can wear a hat, but I don't usually enjoy it.

i like to wear a russian chapka when i drink vodka. does that count as hat wearing ?

brightpearl 09-20-2007 05:28 PM

^most definitely. It's the best kind of hat-wearing. I've noticed it gets better as the evening wears on.

For some reason the effect is heightened if the vodka has been stored in the freezer. Perhaps it's some kind of quantum linking between the vodka molecules and the hat molecules.

Hyakujo's Fox 09-20-2007 05:43 PM

Generally I find wearing hats too ironic, and I have a big head.

while i certainly can, in that i have the ability, i choose not to. i possess a certain sensory defensiveness that makes me strongly opposed to the sensation of many types of accessories, including hats. baseball caps, in particular, feel particularly offensive. the defensiveness in my head region seems to be specific to a small area halfway between my ears and my occipital bone on both sides. i warn you now, if we ever meet in this lifetime, don't even dream of touching me there. i will haikeeba anyone who wants to touch that specific area of my scalp.

so the only way i could conceive of voluntarily wearing a hat without obsessing over how badly i want to take it off, is if there were notches cut in the fabric to expose that midway point between ears and occipital on both sides.

and that would just be a damn ugly hat.

The annual hat comes out on the first Tuesday in November. Otherwise, no.

Yeah, but i've never enjoyed it; something about the way that you're judged based on your method of wearing a baseball cap. i grew up thinking that jocks wore their brims bent upwards, skaters turned it to the side, the rebellious kids flattened their brims, and 'cause I never associated myself with any of these groups, i just stopped wearing hats.

Which is kind of stupid, in retrospect, because I have really fair skin... :rolleyes:

Frieda 09-20-2007 07:16 PM

hey! it's been midnight--

what's YOUR favorite pasta recipe?

yes YOURS!

brightpearl 09-20-2007 07:27 PM

oh oh oh
I love pasta. Too hard to choose a fave, but this is one of my faves, and I'm posting it because it's unusual.

5 c kale, braised in a little olive oil, fresh garlic, and a bit of vegetable broth
Juice and zest of one lemon
can of white beans, rinsed
1/2 c good parmesan, asiago, etc.
enough pasta for 3 -- I like capellini for this

Just braise up the kale, add the lemon, zest, beans, cheese, and around 1/2 c of broth total, toss with the pasta. Sometimes I add a T or two of cream cheese to the broth. Don't let it simmer much after you add the parmesan, or it'll get all stringy on you.

Issie Blow sure did. Dang, woman!

Currently the one I discovered Bella Sicilia:

Pesto Trapanese

2 garlic cloves
3/4 cup slivered blanched almonds (3 oz)
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tomatoes (1/2 lb total), peeled (see cooks' note, below), quartered, and seeded
1 oz finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano (1/2 cup)
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes (6 oz), halved
1 lb spaghetti
Garnish: fresh basil leaves

Purée garlic, almonds, basil, salt, and pepper in a food processor until almonds are coarsely ground. Add quartered tomatoes and cheese to purée and process until mixture is fairly smooth. With motor running, add oil in a stream and blend until incorporated. Transfer pesto to a large bowl and stir in grape tomatoes.
Cook spaghetti in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water , uncovered, until just al dente. Drain pasta and toss with sauce. Serve immediately.

Personally I favour spinach ribbon noodles to go with it instead of spaghetti cos of the optic effect... but this pesto is THAT good (particularly the one they make in La Prima Dea in Erice :D + they have the loveliest waitress of the world :)) that anything noodle-like goes with it.


A pity I missed the hat question... *whisper wisper* Yes, I can wear them ;)

where's the meat?


trisherina 09-21-2007 09:38 AM

That can be tomorrow's question.

T.I.P. 09-21-2007 09:51 AM

i think my current favorite is plain old Arrabiata pasta - Garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, prasley, oregano, tomato sauce and olive oil.


Hyakujo's Fox 09-21-2007 10:00 AM

Somewhere in the Cinque Terre there was a once in a lifetime gnocchi pesto.

brightpearl 09-21-2007 10:06 AM

I think my longest-term favorite is puttanesca. I'm a sucker for olives.

I used to eat at a tiny little place that had the best...just the right spicy, lots of green and black olives. I'm not sure if it was authentically Italian as the owner was from Pensacola, but like most things with similar etymological origins, it's probably most enjoyable if you don't think about where it's been.

trisherina 09-23-2007 01:01 PM

Sure, but don't let them tell you it makes it any easier to lap water out of the dog dish.

It's interesting..this is a commonly-given example of simple Mendelian genetics in science class, but it's a bad one.
