Recurring Themes in My Reading July 2022

on July 31, 2022

Descriptions of Asian food, lavish to the point of cruelty.

Parents who disown their children. (Seriously, how can they?!)

Caring kid/adult relationships. (Much better.)

Multiverses

Brexit

Poutine

    Poutine?! Aw, now I want poutine…

    My own recurring theme seems to be “you can have good art and bad writing, or bad art and good writing, but not both”.

    I didn’t try poutine when I was in Montreal. My stomach was extremely tetchy. Now I may never get another chance. *sniff*

    As a Montrealer, it’s not as great as we like to think it is. The cheese curds, otoh, are great on their own. Just get cheese curds.

      Heh, that’s some comfort. 🙂

      I find the word “curds” unappetizing, though I eat cottage cheese all the time so I should just get over it.

      • Miss Bates says:

        It is a somewhat unappealing word, but it sounds nice when you put the word “cheese” before it. Cheese redeems everything.

      • azteclady says:

        As someone who is picky about cheeses (and mostly “meh” about cheese in general), the phrase, “cheese redeems everything” has me giggling. Thank you!

    • Faranae says:

      I’m *not* from Montreal, I’m from Côte-Nord, so I’ve stopped at the Saint-Fidèle creamery every time I go between Sept-Îles and Québec City each way. Best curds anywhere (especially if you get them there, where they don’t have to add the commercial stabilizers/preservatives for transport), and I also think the poutine from a roadside casse-croute is way better than anything in Montreal. XD

Miss Bates Reads Romance

“Miss Bates…had never boasted either beauty or cleverness. Her youth had passed without distinction, and her middle of life was devoted to the care of a failing mother, and the endeavour to make a small income go as far as possible. And yet she was a happy woman..." Emma, Jane Austen
