I have never had smoked mackerel before. I saw it in a Russian food store today and I got it. I remember a store like this in NYC called Russ & Daughters and it was in Louie.
Oh wow, I would not have imagined it. It's something new totally. The skin looks like golden foil and when I ripped it with my teeth it felt like tearing away a plastic wrapping. There was oil seeping from the fish meat and it was incredibly chewy. It's a salty food so you know it's meant to be preserved, actually I'm not sure about that... but the texture was incredibly fresh and muscular. It's a solid piece of fish. I stood in the kitchen and ate a quarter of it.
It's a wonderful thing. I wouldn't eat any other meat for the day if I plan to eat this. It's overpowering, to the stomach, I mean.
I also need to find out how much water my body needs each day. It's good at keeping it. I had one glass of smoothie today that's about half milk and half bananas and every form of liquid I drank after that compelled me to go to the bathroom within twenty minutes. I wouldn't be able to get through all the tea I've been hoarding...
Anyway, that's it for the food talks. I'm a simple guy. Frankly, the banana smoothie alone is enough to sate my appetite.
Yep, I will still call myself a guy from time to time. "Man up". Stuff like that. Go with it.
Oh that reminds me. This girl was hitting on me the other day. It's so fun being a guy on the internet. I know there is a lot more attention the other way around, but from experience, it's so much nicer to receive come-ons from girls. Maybe it's just new to me, I don't know. I don't care but it's interesting when it happens sometimes.
I don't have the emotional capacity to be either gay or straight, but it's interesting when girls are attracted to my persona. Their nudes are safe with me. I think it's cute and endearing.
When I was younger, whenever I saw a smart, successful, attractive man, I wanted to be him, not be with him. This is important. This is my natural reflex. I don't think that way, I think this way.
With girls, I have a lot of appreciation and fear, but rarely much of a rapport. I think the stereotype that girls are mainly invested in Love business gave me some sort of relief. I felt like if I make it clear that I have no interest in that business, there wouldn't be any hostility and I would have a solid foundation for friendship. I follow that rule to this day. I shouldn't complain that it works, but I am a little bit saddened. Yeah, there is some feud going on among women about other things, but it's absurd that romance is the main conflict of interest among this species.
I just wanted to tell you about a nice piece of fish, but the stuff I told you after is good to keep in mind also. I know I wanted to tell you that at one point, too.
I'm not oblivious to the glaring troubles in every sphere encompassing us. But like I said, I'm a completionist. If possible, I'd like to share my thoughts with you when they are final.
