Karen Karen said: " What can I say? I had no plans to read this book based on the fact that Twilight is some of the most horrifically written trash I've ever read. Not talking about the story, mind you (that's a different argument) but the actual talent of the author. T ...more "

According to Goodreads, I last read The Catcher in the Rye in September 2007. I will venture a guess that I read it only one other time since I first read it around 1990 in high school. That makes it four times, maybe five. It's one of the only books ...more

Anthony Bourdain
“Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn.

To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.

Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It's healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I've worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold.

Oh, I'll accomodate them, I'll rummage around for something to feed them, for a 'vegetarian plate', if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine.”
