Anyone else grow up called em "hamburgs" and not "hamburgers"? 


Never in my life have I called them "Hamburgs", nor do I remember anyone calling them that. We call them "Burgers"... as they should be called.

I prefer "burgers" too but "Burger Cove" just doesn't sound right. :)

When I last visited my in Laws , I had a very good burger with blue cheese and real potatoes ( not peeled ) cut into 3 in chips fried to an appropriate crispy texture with the potato white tasting off potato . The restaurant served as a take away also . The decor was primary Red and white and I think there where numbers in the name .

Also the green salad was not frozen to the point off tastelessness.

It appeared to be more popular with African Americans than White.

Name anyone ?

I am off to Gourmet Burger a London chain started by Australians , not  quite as good as the above and at least 3 times more expensive , but it does not have that why did I eat that reaction/ sensation after half an hour and they do remember to double up the blue cheese.

Must be a Connecticut thing only, Hamburgs, and that's what I grew up calling them cause my extended family was all Connecticut. Even though my little part of the big brood moved when I was young to New York.

OK japanese vintage. My macs are on mid-century regency brass and smoked glass.
Drink my coffee out of classic french tumblers, or mid-century european milk-glass mugs, or arocroc amber.  I have a huge collection of arcoroc amber. Also Octime. Black octagon service that seems so Nagel to me. Gemany is the mother lode for this stuff.
Only buy it when its flawless, and after a couple of years it will scratch which renders anything industrial and mid-century hideous and depressing...

You seem to be more 80's and 90's pure design.  Italian.

I don't find much Italian stuff.  Florentine paper mache trays. I like them beat up.  Find them for a few bucks every couple of months. Take it for what its worth, I like shabby chic dog-eared Italian.  There are northern italian brass beds I would die for.
I've waited for years to have the dough for Barovier and Venini of my dreams but it hasn't happened yet.

I prefer red Solo cups. If I'm feeling really fancy I use the blue ones.

speaking of plastic cups. I inherited some of those old Tupperware plastic cups. Anyone remember those? They are great for iced tea.

I have never owned a set of mating dishes or serve ware . I go to thrift stores at leat twice a week and if I find something unique I pick it up .

I am going to be doing stain glass again soon and I found 6 oval wood picture frames the other day for $2.60 each . I love that show called Oddities and I'm making my office into a curiosity room , which means a bunch of freaky stuff . I am not a fan of clutter but this one room is going to be packed when I'm done .

Good thing I suppose, otherwise your cupboards would be overflowing with baby dishes.



I drink my coffee out of a white ceramic mug with "50 and FAB" emblazoned on it, with its own matching coaster. It was one of last-year's birthday presents. I've decided I'm not having any more birthdays, so I'll still be using it after next Monday.

If I'm drinking tea (doesn't happen often), I use a smaller white ceramic mug with a cute little bunny rabbit painted on it.

I admit to having an iittala fetish, and Scandinavian design in general. Remember, when I lived in NYC I worked in a very modernist boutique-style architectural office so the aesthetic rubbed off on me.

Anyway, iittala isn't cheap, but it's also not super expensive either. Plus it's stuff I bought when I was employed. And my plain white dinner plates aren't iittala they're some cheaper stuff.

I guess I should admit to owning the Stelton Arne Jacobsen designed coffee and tea set that retails for around $1500 -- but in my defense some of I bought at a flea market so it was used. Pictures upon request.

The Eames desk was purchased with money my grandmother left me when she passed away eight years ago, admittedly a splurge. When my parents pass away I will inherit my grandmother's massive set of china which I think she inherited from her mother so it's really ancient, plus I'm sure I'll get my mother's china and two silver tea sets and silver utensils etc. I doubt my sister-in-law will want much of it as she already owns tons of stuff from when they got married. I won't know what to do with all of this stuff and I'd feel guilty going to an auction house (or will I?) Maybe my two nieces will want it all.

Lunch today is a few slices of mortadella and a wedge of Anton's (Germany) Peppered Ass cheese (yes, it's actually called that -- it has peppercorns in the cheese), and some sesame water crackers.

Oh, and a pot of Japanese green sencha fula midori tea.

Later I will be having a manicure.

Do you host dinner parties for 12?  If not, dont feel guilty, sell all that china for the most you can get. Give it to cousins or give it to some "ladyish" friend - Little Britainesque "ladies" included. 

As for silver, its nice to have some silver cutlery. Also silver soup ladles, serving forks, thats fine.  That is already a pain in the ass because it must be polished. I have french restaurant silver plate, those huge forks and huge soup spoons, its weighty, pretty, feels nice in the hand. Not fancy at all.   

Anything silver for serving, platters, tea sets, vases, etc, isn't worth the effort IMO and not what a man wants in his house. I guess if it was especially gorgeous, colonial or art deco but I would try to sell that too.  I figure if someone else is going to enjoy it and use it, its better to put it back into the world in circulation.

This conversation makes me remember some uber 80's stuff I had in NY.  I was bored on my lunch hours and would tour around the back room bargain shelves B. Altman's etc.  I remember this set of cristal stemware that was super Memphis. It dated fast I was embarrassed after 2 years to own. I mean how fast did Memphis bloom and die...

But as they say, everything old is new again. It would be funny to see it still around somewhere.  Also have the habit of abandoning everything when I moved somewhere new. I left all my 80's household and wardrobe in Brooklyn in summer 89 when I dropped everything and spilt in the matter of 3 weeks when i got a scholarship go study in another city.  Then in the 90's I was back in Brooklyn and collected a household of crap again. Next time I left, I put it all on the street in a sidewalk sale and made 2 grand. I was astonished!

Since I like junk shops, thrift stores, stoop and garage sales, not only as a source for my own needs, but just to appreciate what is around, there is an endless supply of interesting crap wherever I go.

Course now more than a decade into Ebay, etc, all this stuff is more easily collectible, or collectible at all, and prices have risen and people make it their jobs comb thrift and flea markets to sell it online.

My grandmother's china was so fierce that she NEVER used it. When I was a child I'd get her to pull it out of hiding in the +100 year old secretariat (which I will also inherit) -- the set even has special bowls for oatmeal, aside from the soup ones. And there are many huge serving platters. The decoration is kind of minimal purple floral -- definitely not my style but I was very close with this grandmother that I'd find it hard to sell.

But then I don't see myself living in a place large enough to hold such things and have dinner parties, though back when I had a healthy income I indeed had a lot of dinner parties. My grandmother's "secondary china" I'd have no trouble getting rid of, but my mother may have already auctioned that off. When they sold the farm and auctioned a lot of her stuff off that was when I was in one of my emaciated wasting periods and wasn't up to being in southern Virginia in a house with no air conditioning, so my parents had to do it all which to this day I feel guilty about.

Oh, she also has these amazing silver water goblets and ever since I was a child I liked them so much my grandmother always said they would be mine when she died, and don't you know that my mother took them, saying I could have them after her :) ha ha At least I make her use them when I am home for the holdidays.

She also had a set of amazing pink crystal wine glasses and cordials, and several platters -- very very femme but beautiful, and my sister-in-law got those. However I do have two candle holders from that set. I have a set of art deco looking wine glasses and small relish trays from my grandmother but they are NOT lead crystal, just glass.

Oh, and I have a great +100 year old chest of drawers. Supposedly it's to always be handed down to the oldest girl of each generation, but my mother just stuck in the basement so I took it. I'm not the oldest girl, but I guess sucking cock kind of qualifies me.

Ok Liza.

I vomited in my bed around 4am. The only other time I have vomited from drinking was when I was 18.

No, but I assume in my vomit besides all the alcohol there were also remnants of raw oysters, fried snails, and pig tails. Courtesy of alla Spina

Then I went to the Dolphin Tavern and then Boots & Saddle -- both two new hipster bars mere blocks away.

ps: I just washed my sheets and shampooed my carpet.

I really enjoyed the micro brew bars , never had a Beer in one I disliked . I . love Pigs trotters but have not seen tails. Its good to read about you having a night on the town after all the mechanics.

raw oysters, fried snails, and pig tails.

Maybe it wasn't just the cocktails but the lovely combination...

Those pig tails were to die for. I'll definitely go back for those. I didn't care for the snails being fried, I would have preferred them the traditional French way. But they do great things at this place unlike I see elsewhere -- can you imagine a mortadella hotdog with cabbage relish? Oh, and I had the most amazing donut bread pudding with a side of fior di latte gelato for dessert.

Well I'm all for such rarified delicacies but all together its sounds heavy and liver challenging.  High protein, high fat, + booze.

As an aside I'm jealous as to get any sort of creative spread like that in Switzerland I'd have to go "gastronomic" and shell out at least 200 bucks.

btw, this restaurant also has roasted pig's head-for-two glazed in caramelized beer. I need to go back and try that with a more adventurous friend.

By rarefied I meant as in acquired tastes.  Oysters.  Really like eating them but they are just below gag producing. Everything is great - the shells, the smell, the animal, opening them, watching the little hairy bits shrink back from the lemon, trying to keep the water, the bubbly I get to drink.  I haven't gagged since I was a kid but there is always a sort of pregag. 
Exactly the same with snails.  (Sea snails are an excection however.)
And any organ meats. Though pigs tail isn't organ meat. I'd say liver pate is the only offal that doesn't come with a pre-gag and that's because its so far far removed in texture and appearance.

I came to enjoy raw oysters a bit late in life -- not until my 30's. I love them specifically with a mignonette layered over them. I've never had a problem with snails. I'm sure I must have had those the first time I went to France and that was when I was 15.

Offal is hit or miss with me -- I've still not mastered enjoying duck hearts or any kind of liver, except foie gras. But I love things like sweetbreads and bone marrow. And I ate calf's head in France back in May and it was simply one of the best dishes I've ever had.
