a [Chat] that starts with a poem

AiouaAioua Ora OccidensOra OptimaRegistered User regular
I am the stars -- and you are the sea
where our horizons endless ever meet
where falling starlight marks the tide's retreat
there find my heart, there always I will be

Nearly two years ago, I braved my way into the U district to get a cheap beer at a grungy dive and establish myself to this woman as a normal, charming, not-an-axe-murderer kind of guy. An important first step with online dating. I passed the test.
A few weeks later I found the words above (in a slightly less refined form) rattling around in my head on my walk to work. I knew I was falling in love.
Just over three months ago I read that poem to her for the first time, followed by my wedding vows.

But you're not here for sappy stories, you're here for PICS

life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    Her hair is beautiful.

    And in the one picture she appears to be standing next to someone who looks very much like John Oliver.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    I’m going to sleep soon, but I tasted one of these while it was hot,’and I think I did a good job. I’m gonna let it soak in its syrup, and get decadent.

    Baklava should be so thoroughly infused with syrup it seems impossible for it to even contain it

    And then have more syrup

    I applaud putting the filling into more than one layer of the dough.

    The Greek/Mediterranean place near my work only puts it in one layer, and I look at it everytime we go there thinking, "I know your money saving game. That's not worth the $5 you're charging. MOAR WALNUTS, AND SUGAR!"

    I don’t think there’s a greater culinary disparity than the good and bad parts of Mediterranean food

    Baklava, gyro, shawarma, doner - Amazeballs
    Dolmas - not even food, as far as I’m concerned

    Why are they called jumpers though

    As a kid I thought Brits and Irish were talking about wearing coveralls, which we call jumpsuits

    The traditional fillings for all varieties of dolmas are virtually all the foods I do not like.

    - soggy seeds/nuts
    - gourds
    - rose hips
    - feta cheese
    - olives

    And then wrapped in a thing that I cannot allow as a viable foodstuff

    Apparently it's from the Arabic 'jubba', or/and the English/Scots word 'jupe', which is a loose jacket or tunic, thence to 'jump', dialect slang for a short coat.

    I say 'apparently', which is short for "first Google result".
