I just had lunch with coworkers at a Chinese joint (not the more authentic restaurants I like, but one of those Americanized places that leave you with an MSG headache). Over lunch, I was sitting next to a new guy at work who I'm getting to know better, and I was telling him how my house is sort of triangulated between the two titty bars in Raleigh, and then we got to talking about movie theatres nearby (we live on the same side of town), and then were talking about upcoming summer movies, and THEN he said "I don't go see movies unless Dave White [ [livejournal.com profile] djmrswhite ] gives them a good review." I about choked on my chicken and black bean sauce...and then he said "My girlfriend swears by him too." It was his turn to choke on his chicken and broccoli when I said "He's a friend of mine!"...and then went back to removing those weird baby corncobs from my food. I don't get those things at all, man.

Baby corns!

No. I don't get them either. But you ONLY find them in Chinese food.

Maybe they're a secret mark of chinauthenticity.

I really doubt Chinese people eat those things. I've had real Chinese food before, and it's just on a different level.

They're like corn cob abortions.

That was awful, I know. But it's true.

It's very true. I'm not a big corn fan in the first place. There is this one recipe for tomato-corn-basil soup, which is really summery and nice, but other stuff? Corn tortillas, I really don't like them. Corn! Not my thing.

I am telling you... We all are only separated by .5 degrees...
