… middle of the night… eating a warmed up slice of pizza. i see feta, basil, tomato, pineapple… one tiny piece of ground beef… and checking out a few things on the internets…
like the movie, man on wire, the video above inspires me. you know that guy is married to that bike to make it work like it does. he lives on that bike, he sleeps on that bike, he breathes the bike. that’s the only way you can get that good at something.
i honestly feel that way about pizza. i am a man obsessed. where else can you get your bread, fruit, protein, dairy and vegetable, all in one edible and convenient triangle? but i must say i think it is the bread that is my favorite part.
we had a great thursday night and the lower 13th street “good times” jazz band played LSE and killed it. a person would be hard pressed to figure out who can slay the stage more, the band i just mentioned or woodsboss.
i don’t even remember now if i ever told you about woodsboss and the performance they made a week ago tuesday. i’ve been sort of in a stupor since that show. there’s not many things that impress or affect me as much as that show. but i don’t have time to get into it.
tonight there was something i have never seen before and will likely never see again. a table of about 16 people ordering 4 large pies… well, 3 large and 1 deep dish, and all 4 pies, all 16 people, getting the exact same 4 toppings on their pizzas. i actually had to go out and speak to them about it. they told me that i had told them it was my favorite pizza and they tried it and loved it and now see no other reason to stray from the formula. the trouble with that logic is:
1. i don’t have the slightest memory of giving this combination out as my favotire combination, and
2. i change favorite toppings about as often as most people brush their teeth. tonight i am crazy about green peppers and pineapple, tomorrow it may be steak and bacon.
3. how on earth can 16 people all just eat the same thing?
anyway, i am actually quite impressed that among the group there was no dissenter. let’s get those people on the senate…
and the toppings were, how can i forget: spinach tempeh tomato and feta. i can imagine it is a good combination. i actually meant to cut out a sliver of a slice and taste it but got too busy to remember that.
i am in the wee hours of friday morning and today and tomorrow will most likely be the busiest days of the year for us as we feed all the college graduates and every family member they could gather together for a party. i am as excited as i’ve ever been. i will honestly have a hard time sleeping tonight over my excitement of working the 2 busiest days of the year.
bring it on, college grads, bring it on!
