Sunday, July 31


You know how when you're PMSing things just get taken the wrong way every single time?  (Maybe you don't know because you're a dude, but I'm going to ask you to imagine.)  I know that they're probably not being as big of jerks as I'm perceiving, and yet things just stuck in my craw tonight.


That was the biggest one.  Eggs.  Left out on the rack to "warm up" so they won't be so runny on the pizza.  And then me speaking up that I didn't think it was a good idea and getting shut down with a "it's ok. We were told to do this and it takes 4-5 hours for them to go bad."

Well, every single egg left in there has had at least 1 hour of that taken away at this point.  Even egg #7 who probably won't get used tonight at all.  Heck, egg #3 probably won't get used.  Egg #1 and #2 are iffy.  Let's hope that they've put them away after I left because otherwise hour 2 and hour 3 might just tick away with no one noticing.

I don't even want to hear anything about a 700 degree oven killing any bacteria.  I prefer not to take chances with perishables that cause 11,000 cases of food poisoning a year.

While we're on it... WASH YOUR GOD DAMN FUCKING HANDS EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU HAVE JUST GOTTEN RAW EGG ON YOUR HANDS.  With soap.  Before you touch something else.  Por favor.

Perhaps it's just me being crazy.

Family Reunion pizza

Over 4th of July I was summoned a family reunion in Oklahoma.  To the non-pizza world I recount the success of the family reunion as thus:
  • 5 mosquito bites
  • 0 chigger infestations
  • 1 wasp chase
  • 1 beetle in my hair
  • 13 daddy long-legs sighted
  • and that (which gives you only a small idea of the number of small moths I encountered and sometimes ran from but never once had a all-out panic attack about like I would have had one of those daddy long-legs touched me) ->
To you pizza people, I will account for the vacation by the number pizzas I sampled which is three.

When I'm among family I try to instill a little Austin in them and not get chain pizza, so the first night there (after a 2 1/2 hour to the Sams club in "the city"*) on our way home we ordered pizza from Keys Pizza.

It's not bad pizza.  In fact, if you were ever stuck in Northeast Oklahoma and your options were Keys Pizza, Pizza Hut, and B&J Restaurant, take the pizza (at least their mushrooms aren't canned!).

Actually, the sauce wasn't bad, the cheese wasn't bad, the toppings weren't bad, and the crust was a bit chewier than I like but still wasn't bad.

*I'm going to call Tulsa "the city" and Tahlequa, Muskogee, Keys, etc "town"
