I work in the north suburbs of Atlanta, in one of its smallest suburb towns (less than 10,000).

So I have not seen anything like what you guys are talking about.

I do like me a good fish 'n chips. There's an unfortunately tendency to over-batter the fish 'round these parts, though. :frown: Yes, yes, it's a wonderful beer batter, yes EVERYONE has a lovely BEER BATTER but for gawd's sake, can I please have some actual fish in it?

ITT: I complain about everything.

Huh, I thought he lived somewhere else, can't recall the name of the place offhand, though.

I could see if it were gourmet, junk food gourmet (like someone's beer battered, bacon hot dogs or something) ethnic or something you otherwise couldn't get at the state or county fair. I think largely it's just an excuse to go apeshit over nothing and an opportunity for the average joe to say "hey look ma, I is a foodie!"

spotted dick.

lol.

tee hee.

Yes, I live in Marietta and I work in Norcross.

Though technically I should live in Kennesaw, and I'm closer to downtown Kennesaw than I am to downtown Marietta.

Kennesaw, as you probably know, is one of the cities in America where if you don't own a gun, you're breaking the law! (if you don't believe me, look it up)

It was also the scene of the Great Locomotive Chase during the Civil War.

KSS member "The Pro" lives in Kennesaw.

Is your friend also a musician?

The Black Crowes (Robinson brothers) are from Marietta. Also, Alton Brown and Ty Pennington. Travis Tritt too. And of course... Newt Gingrich.

He sings in a choir, actually, and is an amateur magician. He was teaching music at a high school, but got the axe due to budget cuts in the arts dept.

Hey CR, call crabapple middle school in roswell and see if they still have the arp 2600 and yamaha cs5 in the music department. when I went there back in 88 they had them. it was awesome. they were brand new too, I figure a music shop in the area closed and they dropped them off as a tax write off.

Ok so my lunch today was leftover lasagna. Isn't lasagna always better the next day or two?

But wait, not just any lasagna. Chicken lasagna. Home-made. Plus, my wife makes it the Brazilian way and we use the french-inspired white sauce rather than ricotta cheese. I don't like ricotta in lasagna, it doesn't fit - I think it's an american thing. White sauce, on the other hand, is perfect. Or B├Ęchamel, whatever.

Are you guys jealous yet? :grin: :love: :cop: :jam:

(only negative side effect is buttlard. but cats love it)

I'd have to try it before I could be jealous!

Fish and chips were never quite the same after they banned wrapping them in newspaper. There was something about the smell/flavour combination that was just special.

Newspaper ink used to be made from carbon black and mineral oil (petrol), and it easily rubbed off on your hands. I suppose it just as easily soaked into fish & chips.

Now it's almost all soy based ink which is supposedly non toxic.

Which suggests that newspapers are full of bean squeezins.

was that back in the day when you could put silly putty on the paper and pull off an image?

my grandparents were always all "you're going to get that newprint all over your hands".

they were very up tight Northerners who said stuff like rubbish, rubbers, galoshes and hail maries all the time. that was / is my irish family.

now my italian family just said "awwwwww jesus christ" all the time. now you wouldn't know it, but the Italian american dialect is a tonal language.

Consider the word "enh?" depending on the tone it can have several different meanings. It can mean "what the fuck are you doing?" and also "what, is my food not good enough for good for you?" or even "am i right?".

If you should encounter a real italian american, and you get the distinct impression he doesn't like you, that means he likes you! :like: Now that's real italian!

No, that just means being a dude.

Now screw you!
