The Mask Captain Outrageous

Clamburger in paradise? Some days, my subconscious seems hell bent on embarrassing me.

I had a weird dream before waking up this morning.
I am sitting at the bar in a tropical-themed bar and grill, drinking and talking with my grandfather. Papaw is having whiskey and I'm having beer. He's not eating, but I've just finished an unusual dish. It's ground beef, onions, tomato, mushrooms, cheese and clam mixed up together and baked and served in a clamshell. It is, in fact, a "clamburger." It was delicious. I'm sitting there, considering the dish, and I think, "That was good. I could have another..."
Why has my brain decided to torture me with such obvious, thick-as-a-brick, not to mention crude and vulgar, symbolism? Since the Holy Hobgoblin is a fiction, one has to wonder how human beings evolved to get any utility out of such a weird mental process.

The only true vulgarity here....

Cheese and seafood are never combined in traditional Italian, French, and Greek cuisines.

There's a reason for the seasoning...

My subconscious is being Craque d'Pot, The Mad Chef!

I'm sorry that your brain is torturing you, but the clamburger sounds great!

Hmmmm, I don't know...

I've had fried clams before, but mixing it with beef? I just don't know. It'd be interesting to try.

Re: Hmmmm, I don't know...

I've enjoyed all the beef and seafood combos I've tried so far (including steak with shrimp, crab and lobster). I've also had steak dinners with clams and oysters as an appetizer. Given my love of seafood, I'd certainly give a clam-laden burger a good try.

Hi. You don't know me, and I know only that which I've read of you here, and what caught my interest in the sfbayarea community. However, I like what I've read so far, so I'm extending an offer of LJ-friendship. Wanna be friends?

I'm pretty open with what I write. I think I've only made one friends only post in here ever, and that was just to do it. I've made only two private posts. I don't mind what people read here and I'll talk to almost anyone with something to say. I generally look over the entries of people who friend me, and if I get addicted to reading what they have to say, I add them. It's nice to meet you.

I read back as far as Dec 1... to learn more. I like your philosophical bend and your writing style. I know of you via (kitnish) and well... just decided to come on over. I'm interested in being added to any sex/relationship are deeper conversations. I'm intrigued and want to learn more about you. So, this is my way of saying hi, hi!
