@ossobuco,
I always thought you more of a foie gras and truffles then chopped liver ossobuco.

@ossobuco,
while it's true, I've had some decent chopped liver at a deli in L.A. I tend to think of california as more of a fruits and nuts place.

@tsarstepan,
I get a kick out of realestate agents who introduce th prospects to "THIS IS YOUR GREAT ROOM".
Whats so fuckin great about it? I can barely see the ceiling through the cloud cover.
How the hell do you heat this room, with a flame thrower?

@farmerman,
yeah, all that while I'm looking at the foundation, the roof and the heating/cooling system.

@farmerman,
I haven't the pleasure of being under the hypnotic spiel of a real estate agent, euphemisms et al.

You love me and you know it. I saw all your Zuni things PLUS I drove your prized Porsche. So there.

@tsarstepan,
Humph. I had fois gras once in the last century. I'm not sure of my opinion, some angst seems over the top, but mostly I get the angst. Truffles - not only are my ears poor, but my nose is. I don't get truffles. I did order truffle ravioli in NYC several times (an appetizer instead of a main dish) and it tasted good. Probably made with questionable truffle oil. I've liked pate, but not eaten it much. My mental palate is much more expansive than my real life one. Life of the mind..

Oh, see Joe Nation on the crunch of anchovies, whatta post.

@dyslexia,
Of course you do, you don't know it. See Langer's, see Canter's. See the two in the morning bagel place on Temple (something like I M Joy), real bagels in the old manner.

Panz, I figure Dys insulting Tsar is a warm welcome. Of course I could be wrong.

You know, I'm kind of curious as to what makes a house "perfect for entertaining".

The only place I've ever lived that fit that bill was when I was 19 and lived alone in ghettoland with a landlord who enjoyed salivating over me and my friends and was therefore inclined to look the other way when we trashed the joint.

Somehow I doubt that's what a real estate agent has in mind.....

@boomerang,
I think it means there are some large rooms, or one large not very cluttered room. You should not trust me, but I speak from years of reading architectural digest while laughing with design partner.

@ossobuco,
Interesting! Thank you!

Outside of ghettoland every time I've had people over they've all hung out in the kitchen. Even at this house which has a worse kitchen than ghettoland.

I never drove the Porsche, but I think I saw the Zuni stuff. That was the rubber tomahawk with a bamboo handle and little pink feathers, right?

I watch those shows too, Dys. I call the HG channel "The Spacious Network." At some point during every episode of every single show on that channel, someone uses the word "spacious." I don't believe I have ever heard anyone use that word in real life conversation. Watch for it. You'll see what I mean.

You must have a spacious kitchen, boomer.

(There, now it's been used in regular conversation.)
