A Tawdry Lunch


34th St Cafe, Austin

A thousand pardons. Yesterday’s post on the frozen dinner was whiney and repulsive. We both deserve better. So, as an antidote, I could do naught but to hie to the 34th St Cafe and get outside a so-called “Chinese hack salad.” What’s a Chinese hack? Hell if I know. I do know that this isn’t so much a salad as a species of giant, inside-out spring roll garnished with about 47 pounds of barbecued chicken. It is a gaudy, meretricious dish behind the concept and execution of which I throw my wholehearted support.

Although on accounta the chile sauce, today I pay the piper.

I hate that fucking piper. He thinks that just because he’s a virtuoso he can charge whatever the fuck he wants.

    There seems to be a whole world of incredible food that I am missing out on….either I need to cook more or find some new places to go out here in OKC.

    Sorry Twisty, but I refuse to pardon you for conveying the bland meatleaf side of your life. You are not only entitled, but geez, if you actually just acted as if eveything is the same, that would be just too weird. As long as you keep dishing it all up with a heavy dose of Twisty sarcasm, then I have a feeling your readers will remain loyal and happy.

    Or should I say Twisty “zest.” If you didn’t already see it, you have a lovely plug on the new Feminist Law Professor blog. http://feministlawprofs.law.sc.edu/

    I, on the other hand, wish to express my relief that you have seen the error of your ways. Cancer or no, little lady, you are not allowed to whine about frozen t.v. dinners and intestinal distress! Count your blessings! And for heaven’s sake, you must never, ever be repulsive. Surely you know that the worst thing about serious illness is that it compromises our god-given duty to be attractive and entertaining at all times.

    So straighten your wig, don that coral cashmere tracksuit, and SMILE.

    Thank you.

    Twisty, we live in S. Austin, I’m not working right now and I’m bored, ergo, I’m cooking a lot. Want me to make you something bland and drop it off? I found your site via ginmar at http://ginmar.livejournal.com/
