[Twitter] was a dumb name, but at least it was unique. X is just dumb.

Wherein we talk about how Elon musk is a dipshit. And also cute animal posts on Twitter/X.

Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Theres a place in Sydney called Gumshara. They boil the pork bone broth for a week. Literally chuck pork bones in, nothing else, boil for 7 days in giant vats. Its thick and full of collagen. Its the most delicious Ramen in existence and there is no universe where a home cook is managing to replicate this.

    I haven’t gotten to my favorite ramen place in forever thanks to covid and the distance to travel to it, but lately I’ve been upgrading instant tonkotsu with a mix of things:

    - Homemade Ajitama (marinated eggs)
    - Homemade Menma (marinated bamboo shoots)
    - Microwave pork roast from hormel that’s actually decent; heat it up, shred it and while it’s not chashu it goes well in the instant ramen

    I have become too spoiled lately as both ramen places and Korean restaurants have become more and more prevalent here with immigrant communities spreading out more from Toronto and Montreal

    We have more than a few good ramen options now, Korean fried chicken and kdogs and bubble tea all over town, pho in every mall, and a particular Japanese Izakaya I am deeply relieved survived the pandemic because I haven't found a better one in Toronto or Montreal either - it's just too perfect

    I am thriving, here

    There's a food-truck that hangs round Westport and Downtown, and a couple out towards Overland Park, but nothing much in KC proper. Even the sushi-bar scene here is pretty dire anymore.

    Speaking of Ramen, shortly after I started at my last job, I needed my 4 wisdom teeth pulled.

    That sucked! My first day back at work they were still recommending mostly liquids, so for dinner I went to the on-campus dining and had what will always be the very best bowl of restaurant ramen I've ever had.

    It was so good ramen in general became my go-to "I'm sick" food

    Moving to a small town sucks. There is no actual Japanese places just stuff like Jimmy's Dragon Palace that is mostly what white people think Chinese food is but with ramen and pho in the noodle section and some sushi rolls. I want some Hokkaido butter miso ramen.

    I lived in a fairly small town (25k) for a couple years but the school I worked at served a town of about a thousand plus several other even tinier towns in the area. That 1k town had a Chinese restaurant that was pretty awful and I really like Chinese-American food. The 3 Google reviews were all 5 stars and were basically, "it's not great but it's all we've got".

    The third review read simply:

    good foof
