Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


What's wrong with well-cooked steak?

On Friday night we went to Sapporo in swanky Scottsdale for some teppanyaki. Sapporo is quite the hot spot; we spent our time waiting for the table checking out the parade of twenty-somethings cruising for action. It's very popular, too - our reservation was for 8.45 and we didn't get seated until a little bit after nine.

I ordered filet mignon done medium well, as I usually do. The chef laughed at me more than once. Everyone else got theirs done medium rare, and my lovely wife often laughs at me for my choice as well. I'm sorry, but dripping bloody steaks just aren't my thing. There's still plenty of flavor if the meat is a nice dark burgundy as opposed to pink. Am I right, people? People?

So what's the deal? There's nothing wrong with cooking your meat a little longer, right?

Dinner was delicious, by the way. And it was quite the cool experience. There was an onion volcano!

It's good to know. A bloody steak does not sound tasty to me.

Where do you think the flavor comes from, you hosers?!?

"Mmmmmm, bloody steak"

Why did you have to ruin a perfectly good cut of meat?

I'm jealous, though. We didn't get the onion volcano at Benihana the other week. :(

That's too bad, sir. Did they at least set your plates on fire?

And if you keep making statements like that, you'll regret in when I'm in charge!

Let me correct my previous statement:
the guy actually did make the volcano, however he didn't light it on fire. What's up with that? A dormant onion volcano is not exciting.

I actually kick my steak all the way up to Medium-well, so I'm definitely no fan of undercooked meat. If I want my beef bloody, I'll just go take a bite out of the cow while it's still in the field.

Excellent, Bill. That's what your future dictator likes to hear!

I tried biting the cows while they're still in the field, but they were too hard to catch. They get freaked out when you try to taste them. "Mmmmm fresh cow".

pink or bleeding meat on a plate is simply nasty. End of story.
