The tips of those cocks look a bit chafed. The shafts look a bit jaundiced, for that matter.

53: Banh mi is one of those things I'd be tempted to make if it weren't so cheap and readily available. If fluctuations in the banh mi market put it out of my reach and force me to start producing it at home, I'll send you a recipe.

Speaking of once-cheap commodities, I noticed that gas prices in town today have reached ten times the lowest price I remember from my childhood. This makes me ponder my age first, the global energy economy second, but a man's got to have his priorities.

ogged, if you haven't had good bánh mì, you should just wait, and then go to Ba Le in Chicago. It's supposed to be the best, although I am partial to the pâté-related sandwich from Fan Si Pan, although I never go there anymore because I'm never in that 'hood.

Most times I wish I had a car. Because of the prevalence of tasty food relatively near me, something has to be out-of-this-fucking-world for me to bother more than, like, a mile and a half to go there. But I will, for places like Feed (an entire chicken, the best you've ever tasted, and three southern sides for $14? Fuckin' a), and Lem's (best ribs in the universe, and CHEAP).

Ogged should really wait on the bánh mì until he can eat at Kim Anh or Thai Tai on 17th Ave in Calgary. Compares favorably with Vietnamese cuisine from just about anywhere in North America (at least reputedly -- I can only compare within Canada).

I've found it's actually far easier than I first imagined to spot people I haven't met, even if I don't know what they look like. You're both looking around for people, for a start. But emailing beforehand and saying stuff like, "I'll be the one in the enormous red hat" generally works well.
