Come take my hand and allow me to guide you into another twisting dark tunnel of nostalgia courtesy of my obviously getting too old and starting to want to relive the past.. I don't know if that's the case because really it seems to me I've always wanted to relive the past even years ago back so maybe my problem is just retrospective obsession, I don't really feel old; not in the traditional sense anyway. So maybe let me not so much guide you into a twisting dark tunnel of nostalgia so much as let me forcefully submerge your face and head into it's dark suffocating depths? ...Something like that, anyway.. At any rate our subject for this trip of nostalgia comes in the form of another show which premiered in.. Gee.. Fancy this.. 1993, Pinky and the Brain.. The fuck is with '93? Theme number much?
, which ultimately would end in failure, usually due to Pinky's idiocy or the impossibility of Brain's plan but it was good in that 'I can watch them do this for pretty much ever' sort of way, it never seemed to really get old even if it did become somewhat predictable. Parodies and pop-culture references are abound in this show, this is where some of the real cleverness of the show came into play and many of the references and parodies like those seen in Freakazoid! seemed to be geared towards an older and more mature audience, WB seemed to be playing the field pretty widely here and that was always nice though I can't see some of these jokes, parodies and references not completely going over the heads of younger viewers.. It's a show that I remember fondly and miss, if you get the chance and you haven't seen it, I suggest to make the effort. If you have seen it? Watch it again. Always good to relive something this.. Uh.. FUCKING REDUNDANCY... GOOD.. FINE, WHATEVER.. NEXT SUBJECT..
So now we move on to dinner for tonight which was a celebratory dinner, a celebratory dinner in celebrRREEEDUNNDDAAAANNCCCCCYYYYYYYYYY of James' finding a job! Hooray! Ironically? He's working at Walgreens now.. Much love as I give that store on this blog they should probably pay me for advertisement and pimping their names, I'm pretty sure I've made them several sales in the past.. Tonight's dinner, though? It was an all out affair;
This is a unique dish I'd created myself, Japanese style naturally but a largely original meal. Amai supaisu butapan (Sweet Spice Pork Bun), the bun of which I'm proud to say as pretty as the fucker was, I made myself. The ingredients for the dough kneaded from scratch into dough, the dough shaped by my hands and then baked by my hands. It came out fluffy and buttery golden and when I filled it with my Butaniku no itame (Pork Stir-fry) it just looked sooooo nice! The sauce on top? Oh, that gets a mention all it's own. I worked hard on that sauce and I wasn't convinced it would work or come out right but I managed it.. Oh, I managed it. The sauce was less like a dinner sauce and more like a dessert sauce but that was the intention, it's an entry into the sweet-dish category and is a sweet spice sauce as the name of the dish indicates.. I'm not going to detail how I created it or what I used but the ingredients were difficult to work with and in the end the fact that it came out absolutely amazes me. I don't think I'm good for having created this, I believe it was a fluke that it worked out.. Nevertheless.. My god what a fluke..
And here's where I once again hope that someone who owns a restaurant or heads shows on the Food Network stumbles across my blog and hires me as a Chef or gives me my own job, where's my fairly tale twist, damn it!? Bah! I mumble in frustration.
