A lot of crust


A theme! We coyotes like themes. They're something we can sink our fangs into. This one is about varieties of crust -- pizza and poetical.

I see that our Muse is a traditionalist in the way of yeast, using it as if it were live, rather than one of the quick varieties. I approve. Nuthin' like fresh yeasty pizza dough, straight outta the forno. We coyotes tend toward the home-ec-dropout, quick-rise cheat ourselves, but that's because if we don't have to punch it down, we don't get as many of those little dough balls stuck in our fur. As for toppings, I note that she leans heavily toward the vegetarian end of the scale, again with many traditional picks. I like bunnies, myself, but that's just me. It's really the crust, the sauce, and fresh ingredients that make a truly decent 'za, don'cha think?

The other variety of crust would be that depicted in the latest episode of the lcp story. Human politics often baffle me, but I will say this: the poet seems to have a talent for striking at a moment calculated to have the greatest effect on others. I'm not entirely sure if it's really subtle, or really blatant, but it's certainly well-practiced.

As for the eternal question of which type of crust is the cheesiest, well, that's why we have comment threads. Dig in!

What does this say about someone like me who simply buys pizza crust? Nihilistic materialist?

Coyote, I was thinking the same thing about the lcp.

Perhaps though it's a behaviour you can relate to. Sort of a staking out territory thing. Showing no concern for other possible interests who might be around.

Corrie said...

Oh oh. What does it say about someone who just goes right ahead and buys the whole darn pizza, ready-made?

Of course, in my defense, I DO live one block away from the best pizza joint in Ottawa.

4th Dwarf said...

Siren, I thought you cared about your anonymity and now you're telling people you're a block from Ricardo's?

Corrie said...

My dear dwarf. I KNEW this would escalate into a war of words with you, over JUST which pizza joint is the best in Ottawa.

Ricardo's. Snort.

I was, of course, referring to Piazza Pizza, the most authentic little cookerie to ever inhabit a shop outside a square in Italy.

Really.

Siren, I'm afraid this might mean that you're among the living dead.

Behaviour I can relate to? Why Dwarf, what are you saying? Coyotes stake out their territory the time-honoured old-fashioned way. As Farley Mowat does in Never Cry Wolf. Although I can see this being a potential problem in the social setting the Muse describes, Rhyme Guy weren't far off, were he?

Corrie said...

Ok, I might even welcome the interference of Agents O&A at this point.

Coyote. Yesterday it was upchucked coyote cookies (don't give me any of that "I meant barking" malarkey). Today we're into other bodily fluids.

As an official member of the clan of the living dead, I'm fairly used to some gross stuff.

But all this goes beyond the pale. Let's abide by SOME standards of decorum, alright?

Bad enough we have to put up with the drunken ramblings of a scurvy pirate...

Agatha said...

I go to the Riviera for a week and when I get back the metablog has been revealed and the Pirate seems to have taken over the ship. I'm behind on everything. Perhaps I can be given briefing notes?

Corrie said...

Aggie, I was away for most of last week, on the Canadian Riviera, so I'm at least as confused as you.

I'm still catching up myself, and so don't feel qualified to compile notes for you.

However, as you can tell from the pirate-takeover, resulting in the pirate-like identity the metablog has acquired, the very piratey LOOK of the thing, THE PIRATE may be the best one to get you the info you need. Good grief, our blog has been BRANDED, for creep's sake!

IO, oh, ho, I thought, reading your comment, he's going to go too far and I'll have to delete his comment...

but instead, it seemed that the comment was worthy of being it's own posting. Since ye're not an official metablogger, I did it for you.

You're a gentleman and a sailor, 4D.

Good thing, Dwarf. Otherwise, to get up to speed fast enough, Ag was going to have to trade in that cute little Austin Seven for something with a lot more hot sauce under the hood -- er, bonnet.

And Siren. Jeez, I make a discrete li'l sidelong reference to a CanLit classic and you accuse me of mentioning the unmentionable, out loud. I didn't, you did. Both times. Anyway, hey, a coyote's gotta do what he's gotta do. And as you yourself pointed out, this seems to be an 'Arrr'-rated site now.

'Kay folks. Nothing more to see here. Move along to the next posting.
