  1. Istanbul, lesson 1:

    NOT Constantinople.

  2. Fact: if you get a theme song by Tom Lehrer, you’re doing something right with your life.

  3. OK, totally OT but I have a question about this pseudo-vegetarian thing mentioned in the interview…not REALLY a vegetarian, MOSTLY a vegetarian, but will eat turkey and fish.

    WTF. My daughter is on a similar kick…won’t eat beef, but anything else is okay…fish, fowl, pork, whatever.

    How does one decide which animals are too damn cute to eat, and which ones aren’t? What’s the cutoff there? She can’t give me a rational answer, but I bet a professor(tm) could.

  4. Here’s another non-rational cog for your machine, Apo: I won’t eat sheeep of any kind. Because they are ugly and stupid and they stink.

    and goats? completely out of the question.

  6. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any quibble with someone not eating a certain meat for a silly reason. Or even a good one. Hell, I won’t eat ham, even though I’ll eat any other part of a pig, just because I got turned off by those damn canned hams (with the awful horrible clear jelly stuff packed in the can) I got when I was a kid.

    That’s fine. I’m just weirded out by people who say “I’m a vegetarian, but I’ll eat (insert animal here).”

    NO, YOU AIN’T. You’re a damn omnivore like the rest of us apes, so get off yer high horse.

  9. I’m a conflicted pseudo-vegi/ovo-lacto/carni/omnivore:
    I refuse to eat kitties and puppies,
    but I also refuse to eat broccoli and peas.

    Well, at least I ain’t a LSM limnivour.

  10. Oh, right, Turkey.
    If you go to Turkey, be sure to visit Ephesus. It is seriously awesome.
    Then go to Bodrum. Not only does it have a neat harbor fort, you can rent a boat for a couple weeks and sail among the Greek islands. Uhm, come to think of it, skip the other stuff; and just do this. Trust me.

  13. Missy,
    How’s a Greek salad with feta and olive oil sprinkled on top plus a little cold lamb kabob and washed down with a Riesling while lying on deck in the sun while sailing the twenty miles to the next Greek island sound?
    Then, after arriving, a stroll around the village, then spending a couple hours in the shade at a waterfront taverna deciding which restaurant to eat at, always with a calamari starter. In the morning, same routine, but at the other restaurant. That, my dear, is cruising cuisine.
