Tasty Salted Pig Parts


When you absolutely cannot stand it anymore,
get thee to The City.


we made our escape yesterday. what did we do.

bhan mi and grilled eggplant with cherry blossom rice at Pho 69 in San Jose.

ketel one martinis and oysters on the half-shell at The Slanted Door in the Ferry Terminal.

a goddamn snow-cone full of salted pork products from Boccalone. Seriously, three bucks for a paper cup full of brown sugar and fennel salami, coppacolla, and soppresata.

A cheese plate from the Cow-girl Creamery with cheeses, almonds, dates, crusty dark bread, arugula.

lemon-grass pork with vermicelli from the Back Door.

sushi rolls from the japanese deli.

chocolate bar and vodka from the corner liquor store.

art to murder us at the DeYoung Museum.


and etc.


whatever is taken from us, we yet lay claim to this kind of pleasure.


nor will we be dissuaded from it.


it is enough to renew our parched souls.


enough and more.

God DAMN! this makes me happy. And hungry as hell.
I think insurance should cover this sort of healing. If I were Queen Of The Universe, it sure as hell would.

You and the Mrs sure know how to do it right. Me? I just chopped a shitload of veggies for shepherd's pie. When I saw Tasty Salted Pig Parts up top I immediately said Oh HI! Mom and Dad! I can't comment on Falleni yet because I think I met him once too and it wasn't pretty. Give me time though.

I especially like that cone filled with pork stuff. That made me salivate. And that Ferry building might be one of the most perfect places on earth. Does it still have a weird little bookstore?

Ms. Moon-

I know, huh? Since they won't cover anything that happens once you actually get sick or injured, at least they could pay for a night on the town.

I don't know. Can you eat books?

I was only looking for stuff I could mac on.

You'll have to come with us next time and see if you can find it again.
