Okra is a fairly under-rated vegetable. While it's high enough in oxalates to be used sparingly in anyone with a history of kidney stones or known or suspected oxalate sensitivity, it contains polysaccharides that can help heal the digestive lining in people with gastric irritations. And did you know that okra's mucilaginous texture makes it perfect as a thickener for soups (great for those of us who can't use roux due to allergy to wheat flour), and can even be used as an egg substitute in baking?
New York Day 7: Spent the day sleeping in recovering from jet lag. Visited the Saturday farmers market in the afternoon, very hipster with everything homemade.. like this Thanksgiving theme turkey 🦃 loaf. I got myself some Fuji and Mutsu apples 🍏 and a quarter loaf of delicious Mische bread. I love my neighborhood. Hung out with my neighbors, Carlin and Dan in the afternoon. Brunch at The Matchless was pretty good. I had the Matchless Sandwich🥙. Back at Carlin and Dan's, got acquainted with Eva🐶, who's adorabe and super excited around new people! In the evening I was invited for drinks at SOHO House with Dina, and new friends Natasha and Nikita! And yes it is the same ultra exclusive invite only SOHO House 🍸 featured on Sex and the City 👠. Ooh la la! Right after Dina and I went to Stonewall Inn for a night cap🍺 🏳️🌈 #newyork#manhattan#brooklyn#nyc#usa#farmersmarket#sohohouse#stonewall#sexandthecity
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewers head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenevs Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
