@Cheyenne: Did you just say Wookieepedia? Because thanks to this new “The Star Wars” I have been looking into the expanded universe… Such shit… Such shit… Look at this: “Mofference: A Mofference was a secret conference held by the Imperial Central Committee of Grand Moffs in the secluded Mofference room of their Moffship.” starwars.wikia.com...
  4:01pm sugarplum fairywolf:

Speaking of Wookiees, I watched the Star Wars Holiday Special last night. yikes!
  4:02pm JakeGould:

Also, the “Star Wars” universe has no transgendered people or even droids: “Most beings in the galaxy belonged to one of two sexes (namely male or female), which determined sexual and physiological traits. Although droids had no sexes, they could be programmed with masculine or feminine personalities to simulate the behavior of a specific sex, thus, even mechanical beings were usually designated he or she.” starwars.wikia.com...

Nick likes Umami-flavored Pizza!
Avatar 4:19pm ! I X Key !:

One reason for pizza being the number 1 worldwide yum all up is that cheese is physically addictive
Avatar 4:24pm Jeff:

I like pitsa.
Avatar 4:26pm ! I X Key !:

! The most popular pizza topping in Russia last I knew was a 7-fish blend

Pizza for Christmas
Avatar 4:30pm amEdeo:

Do you like pitsa every day?
Avatar 4:34pm Cheyenne:

I like it in the morning, evening and at supper-time. Pitsa. But not bagel pitsas.

Merry Christmas Cheyenne, et al. (belibers and non-beliebers, alike)

Bagel pitsa is not enough pitsa.

Yeah I need more than a bagels worth
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wanted to be the odd neighbor and mow the grass today, but I did other things and it's too late now. Maybe on New Years Day.
Avatar 4:59pm Jeff:

I got on a whole tangent of looking up foods rich in glutamate and ribonucleotides for Nick to cover his pitsa with.

There's a pretty cool table in the new Food Lab book by J. Kenji López-Alt, but I can't link to the image my eye is seeing of that page. And I can't imagine any sci-fi technology which might allow this.

Here, look at this fine piece on vegetarian bean chili and search for "umami-bombs":


Nick, have you tried smearing Marmite on your pitsa? Maybe a schmeer of Marmite dotted with tasty anchovies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm herb.nyc:

"Why geese?". Why a no duck?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Nick the Bard:

I'm not going near Marmite, so, no
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm herb.nyc:

This show is sooooo anti-Bah Humbug. Thx! Merry Christmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Uncle Michael:

J. Kenji López-Alt is to blame for our Christmas dinner, Jeff.

Been here for most of the shebang. Didn't make eggnog this year as I have the apartment to myself, actually, I have the whole building to myself, it's so quiet!

Didn't Homer get bribed at the movieplex w/ a garbage bag of popcorn after being kicked out for being too fat for the seats?
Avatar 5:21pm Jeff:

You know what's worse than all those movies where the cranky anti-Christmas character's heart grows three sizes and causes said character to completely abandon all previous deeply-held convictions?

The Breakfast Club. That makeover of Ally Sheedy's character being presented as some great positive thing makes me hate the movie so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm coelacanth:

Jeff i agree. when that scene happened, i consciously knocked my rating down a few notches. (even though we could see it coming)
Avatar 5:30pm Cheyenne:

Yeah she is better as a scruffy goth
  5:36pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: Yup. As someone at the exact target market age for “The Breakfast Club” when it came out, all I could think is that whole “Let’s clean the ‘freak’ up and make her a pretty princess.” scene was tacked on by the studios.
  5:38pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: Speaking of food, but did you see the new “Star Wars?” The only really new, fun and science fiction thing in it was *SPOILER* the little bread bun Rey makes with one of the “portions” she earns from scavenging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm herb.nyc:

My cat isn't gay. But if she were, I'd be perfectly fine w it.
Avatar 5:41pm Jeff:

@JakeGould: I look forward to noticing that when the new fillum becomes available to watch at home...
  5:41pm JakeGould:

@Jeff: Shit. I spoiled it. Damn me to hell.
Avatar 5:42pm amEdeo:

@JakeGould liked that. Cool stuff.
Avatar 5:43pm Cheyenne:

aw jeez sorry Ted
  5:43pm JakeGould:

@amEdeo: It means the “Star Wars” universe has gluten.
Avatar 5:46pm Jeff:

@JakeGould: you spoiled nothing. I have absolutely no clue WTF you were talking about.
