Ninety nine per cent of Saria's posts make me hungry.

Yeah, but Flushing has better dim sum (and regional Chinese food) than Chinatown. Sunset Park in Brooklyn is also supposed to be really good for Chinese. But Flushing is best.

I wasn't 100% sure what dim sum was until I read that Serious Eats post when it was published. Sounds like my kinda food because I love having a little of everything.

Ninja, I hope you can appreciate that I needed to update my signature line and you were divine inspiration.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Oh, mercy!

springy, you're welcome to it, but I seem to stumble into saying the dumbest things..........bless your Calvin-loving heart for putting up with me.

I want to try dim sum but it's a bit far away for me.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Curlylaura, there are a lot of posts on chowhound's UK board about dim sum. It would be fun to see pics of a UK dim sum curly gathering!
I love pickles. That is all.

I dislike all but cornichons.

That is all.
Eurgh people in London just annoy me.

They are so rude. Pushing past you and knocking you out the way to get through the ticket barrier before you.

And then I had to deal with some drunk middle aged business men harassing all the women trying to get into the first class area on the train. Who then got incredibly offending when one woman told them to knock their bs off and take his drink ass elsewhere. He has two fostered children you know. It offends him that someone would accuse him of that.

What an asshat. I heard him and his buddies talking about how a 32 year old man going out with a 19 isn't a large gap. That he could get a 19 year old if he wanted (the man is mid 50's at least) and probably younger.

Nice. Real nice.

On a pickle related note. My inlaws chop sweet pickles and put them in their tacos. It's surprisingly good.

Mmmmm...dim sum! Count me in! I went to a really cool restaurant in China for dim sum. We ordered the "deluxe dinner" where we got to try 18 different kinds. Most of them were shaped like it's filling (the duck one was shaped like duck, there was a walnut one shaped like a walnut, etc.). It was fabulous!

I'm not big on cucumber pickles, but I love pretty much all other pickled vegetables. Heck, I like homemade cucumber pickles too, since they're a little sweeter and a little less salty.
Homemade pickles with extra dill...yum. My grandmother also makes spicy pickles that I can't get enough of.

My Nanny used to put up these syrupy sweet spiced pickles with cucumbers from their garden and I've never been able to find anything like them. They were in this thick liquid and the pickle itself had a different texture than any other pickle I've had. I always loved putting them in deviled eggs, egg salad, tuna salad or just eating plain. I know there were some type of whole spices in the thick brine, cloves maybe. I wish I'd had the sense to ask about these things before she died.

I miss her pickles.
I miss her cheese straws.
I miss her dressing.
I miss her house.
I miss her.

I smashed my toe in a massive metal door. Now there's a nice puncture wound through the side of my toe, and the entire thing is swollen and purple. And it hurts like a b!%^$. I also managed to severely gross out a few friends while changing a bandaid on it. Ergh.

I'm not grossed out, Kenzie!

I am sorry you're hurt, though.

I love medical details.
