Browncoats Like Eat Chinese
Tuesday, September 29, 2009

So, I was sitting in my fairly-shiny chinese restaurant the other night, eating my delicious hong kong style chow mein...with my ma, as she dropped by.

Ain't much acquainted with the serenity that is firefly, my ma. So behind me a guy gets up, leaves a tip, and goes on his merry.

Ma says: Hey, that shirt looks interesting. What's a Browncoat? And why do they misbehave?

Distinguished me: Was his shirt a brownish color? I have a lot to say about that...

So, a shout out to whatever fine gentleman decided to articulate this choice through his fashion. It provided much merriment. Nihowdy!

to y'all:

Dango. Japanese dumplings. yum.

Char siu bao = Chinese pork dumplings. Safeway has halfway decent (steamed) variety in the frozen section.

I always ate a lot of east asian, but now there are firefly jokes attatched!

bytemite: yeah, bring out the tofu cake! It's party time! Well, tofu basically IS protein mush..maybe they add some other cool stuff like vitamins and minerals. And corn syrup.

I have my own theory that Fruity Oaty Bars contain trace amounts of LSD. Just check out the commercial.

mincing beast: haha, fill out that browncoat! Is yours alcoholic? Best (possibly only) feature of the Mudder er...beverage.

Tofu is so very similar to protein mush. I have my suspicions that's its generic name in the future.

I've had dim sum before. That's LIKE bao.

A particularly delicious version involves lemon pie filling. Yummy.

Japanese have something similar, little meat filled dumplings. Usually shredded pork, I believe. Forget what they're called.

But seriously, I never had bao until I saw Wash drool over it. Now, it is all i want to eat.

Dude, Browncoats only eat protein.

I have some awesome recipes for Muscle Milk.

I say east asian because I'm including Japanese, Indian, Thai, and Polynesian foods as well as Chinese.

Might be a member of a local group.

I agree, since first seeing firefly, my use of chopsticks and eating east asian fare have increased substantially.
