Took a HUGE schnitz today at Country Style Hungarian Restaurant. As did my friend Robbie. Akemi opted for the cabbage roll. It has been a while. In fact, now that I think on it, I believe the last time I had schnitzel was at The Black Forest Inn in Hamilton during Dark Matter’s third season. It made me long for the days of Vancouver’s dearly-departed Budapest restaurant. Although I wonder how our North American versions compare to the Viennese originals. I recall an Austrian acquaintance once assuring me that his home country’s schnitzels were superior because they were not only delicious but also – and I quote: “as big as a toilet seat!”. THAT is pretty big. I wonder if their Vienna sausages are as long as a toilet brush? Or their knodels as large as elephant testicles?
So, what’s the best thing YOU’VE eaten recently? And how big was it?
Looking to target the week of March 23rd for my L.A. trip. Provided, of course, this whole pandemic thing fizzles out. I’ve seen a fair amount of alarming information concerning the coronavirus, but it’s usually relegated to more obscure corners of the internet. Thankfully, the major media has taken a more, dare I say, dismissive approach, pointing out that the common flu is actually worse than this virus. This is very comforting. Provided, of course, you ignore the fact that the coronavirus is actually far more contagious than the flu and the mortality rate significantly higher. I wish the media had been able to point this out to China BEFORE they went through the trouble of building all those new hospitals and quarantining a city of 11 million people.
Still finishing up work on a few of these development projects, so I unfortunately had time to watch anything, but after hearing my friend Ivon’s glowing recommendation, I’ve added Chernobyl to the list of shows I’ll probably never get around to watching.
