Listening to: Sufjan Stevens, The Neighbourhood and Disturbed. I'm eclectic...
Hello there. Today is unintentionally pirate-themed as I am going to be eating an apple and drinking some rum. Actually, I don't know if apples are pirate food, probably quite the opposite because fresh fruit didn't last long for soldiers sailing for months, but, ah, fuck it, it isn't pirate-themed... I guess it's because I saw Barbarossa eating an apple in Pirates of the Carribean and my mind made this jump to:
Pirate = apple eater
Sorry about that. I'm not eating that much food, because I just had a large portion of delicious tortellini. If I feel hungry enough for anything after this, I might have a bit of it. The little munchies fairy in my mind is telling me to ditch the apple and go for the tortellini. Eat a little bowl of it! However, my curious, adventurous mind wants me to tell you what an apple tastes like high. So, maybe I'll appease both. And my excesses, wasting-time fairy will love that decision. Time to eat.
Royal Gala Apple: Initial piney taste. Now it tastes refreshing and watery. Yup, definitely tastes like an apple. Crispy. Hard to describe, I don't think I can taste it as well. This is probably the healthiest thing I've eaten so far, and honestly, it's a bit confusing to eat.
Captain Morgan's Dark Rum (just a shot! I'm not going crazy with the alcohol, since I had a vodka shot earlier): When I tried this sober, I remember it tasting way better than most rums I've had. More flavourful and tasting of caramel. Let's try it again now. I get the kick almost right away, as is the case with most hard liquors. It warms my throat like an oral fireplace. I don't think I like it as much now. It's got that subtle taste of hand sanitizer. Mmm... I can taste the caramel, too. My head is buzzing. Good god, it smells much better than it tastes, even when I'm only getting a second-long sniff. I take a longer sip and my whole body loosens a bit; it smells gorgeous, so fragrant. This smell could be made into a perfume. Oh God, it's like Cardamom. Each sniff makes me slightly faint. Smelly slightly of vanilla. My eyes are twitching like crazy. That was one of my better experiences with hard liquor.
Will I do it? Aw, heck. Who could turn down something as delicious as this:
Baked Tortellini with Tomato Sauce: So delicious. Initially tastes like tomato and dough. Mmmmm... Sweet and doughy. Cheesy. I sure love adjectives. Warm. Sometimes it is firm and chewy; I love that texture. It's also soft sometimes. Mmmmm... the cheese is sweet, or maybe it's the basil that was sprinkled on top. Or both. Very hot at times. I almost burned my tongue, but it's oh so good. I really don't like the green ones at much. They taste too vegetably. I know, I'm such a picky person. Eating all the green ones first so I get them over with. The leftovers are less firm and chewy. I love it when I can taste the basil. That was lovely. It was hearty, like a good soup, which is what that bowl is usually used for.
Next time! We eat century-old pot brownies.
