Remembering the great Maurizio Pollini
Legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini defined modern piano playing through a combination of virtuosity of the highest degree, a complete sense of musical purpose and commitment that works in complete control of the virtuosity. His passing was announced by Milan’s La Scala opera house on March 23. Read more >>

Thank you - but please don't go and ask me to write you a little tune, will you?!...

Best,

Alistair



Ok Alistair, I won't go and ask you...  :) but since you mentioned it yourself (without me saying anything about it first) I have to say that that would be sooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool!!!!!  8)  8)  8)  :P  :P  :P but of course I won't ask you... I'm just saying it would be really really cool you know!?...  :P  :) I mean you wouldn't need to do it right away, you could take as much time as you would need... even till next year (when I'll have this important decade and a half birthday, see the "What's on your mind thread" for more information; even though i don't feel that old yet but whatever)... So you see I didn't go and ask you anything, I just let you know that it would be sooooooo cool !!!!!!!!!  :)  :P  8) that's all  :P

Best

Little tune
 :P

Edit: Oh oh and I think I should mention I was eating toast with butter and honey since this is "What are you eating right now" thread.  :)

With all that coolness arond you, you might be in danger of catching a chill and I'm sure that none of us would want that to happen.

All that I can add at this stage is that, were Thal to write you a tune of any size, whether or not scored for the somewhat dubious combination of piano and obbligato banjo, I might "eat my hat" (as the saying goes)...

Best,

Alistair

Although your other food items look wonderful, this sounds particularly amazing;  I don't even know what a skate wing is!  I can't fathom even attempting using fish in a pie.  Is this a British thing, along with your other postings?

I am not British, but a third generation New Zealander. However, skate might well be used in pies in Britain; it isn't a specifically New Zealand recipe as far as I know. My wife frequently makes pies out of whatever fish or meat is left from the previous night. I suspect many people around the world do a similar sort of thing.

The skate is a type of ray. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skate

The large, soft, fleshy wings are thick and delicious. They don't have as strong a flavour as some fish, and that is probably why, like shark, they are much cheaper than more popular species. But this doesn't matter if it is cooked with tasty ingredients.

They were indeed delicious, and two are left for lunch today. Not sure about the leaves, but the first kingfisher of spring was calling in the avocado tree this morning. Perhaps eating the pasties caused that. Come to think of it, daylight saving started today too. Powerful things, pasties.

I don't exactly know what it is. 

But when I went to the restaurant, there was this thing that looked like a pancake on everyone's plate, and all of the food was in the center of the table.  So I was sitting there all ackward because I didn't know how to eat it.  Then this one kid was like, 'hey bro, that pancake thing on your plate is your fork' and I had no idea what he was talking about.  So I sat there watching everyone else eat and I realized that You use the pancake thing to eat.

It's pretty cool, you grab the food with the pancake thing and then eat it.  Sorry, I forgot what it was called.  And I don't remember any of the food names. 

Some people might think of that as unsanitary, but whatever dude. 

If there's an Ethiopian restaurant/joint around where you live, you should definitely try it out.  Unless if you have a low tolerance for spicy food because etiopian food is typically spicy.

I wondered if I could eat coffee beans.  So I got some.  And they're not too bad.  Smaller than I thought and they just crunch and break apart.  And they're easy to eat.  I ate a handful.  And then I looked it up online and a site says 6-7 beans is equal to one cup of coffee.  So one handful.... It's starting to kick in now.
