Otto's in Coolidge Corner

Hey, have you figured out I like pizza yet? No, well, hey stupid, I like pizza, get with the facts. We went to a new pizza place in Brookline a long time ago (pre: "Eggs:"), called Otto's.

There were four of us there that evening, me, Heather, Lillian and David "Big Red" (you might know him as the pack of gum from previous blogs [he is not an actual pack of gum, I need to point that out. Lillian did not marry a pack of chewing gum, it's just his nickname, I would not allow a friend to marry an inanimate object]).
So, I was a little puzzled on what four people should order at a pizza restaurant. Each person buying a small pizza seemed inefficient. So, I suggested we get two large pizzas and also a small pizza, and this was agreed upon.
I knew we had to get one of their potato pizzas. It has mashed potatoes, scallions, and bacon on it. I told Heather that I wanted to get this potato pizza before we got there. So we sat down, and eventually the server came over and said:
"Can I take your beverage order?"
"Umh, yeah what beers do you have?"
This is the response from the server that I remember: "Well we have Circus Boy, Smuttynose IPA, Brooklyn Lager, blah blah blah hey Jeff how good is that Brooklyn going to taste, pretty good I imagine since it is one of your favorite tap beers blah blah blah." I ordered a Brooklyn, and so did the wife since she knows what's good for her.

As the server was walking away the wife startled me and yelled at the server, "Hey, can we order a large potato pizza while we think of the other pizzas. I'm hungry!" I was surprised but ultimately happy about my wife's actions since it meant pizza would be arriving sooner rather than later. Well, that's a lot of words, finally here's the fricking potato pizza photo:

That was a slice. I also took a picture of half of the pizza so here that is:

We also decided on a large pizza that had Spicy Pulled Pork, Scallions and Herb. 

I had a bite of that one, then I said "Wooh! that's some spicy pizza!" I looked over at the pack of gum and Lillian, and they were both adding red pepper to their slices, saying "Umh, I guess it's slightly spicy." 

I should mention that I picked out that pizza order too. The small pizza I left to the non-bloggers, they picked a pizza with: White Beans, Roasted Potatoes, Herb and Red Flake. We all came to a consensus that the two larges were the better pizzas. Heather, in fact, ate two slices of the small before she said "Hey, there's a bean in here! I thought we got a Margherita!" In conclusion, I am a professional blogger, so just let me pick the pizzas when you go to a pizza place.

Eggs: Eggs Verde

Hey, what's with the "Eggs:" part of this blog's title?
Whoa, bold questions right away? OK, "Eggs:" is because I think this blog is cursed by an evil spirit and is trying to punish me.

Oh, I like eggs too - wait what? evil spirit?
Well, I think an evil spirit is offended by my blog and is taking it out on me. 

I like omelets too - wait what? you're still serious about this evil spirit thing?

Heather, Connor and I went to Amherst to visit my sister on an overnight trip. She is going to be a senior in college at UMass. You might think that seems young for being my sister (since I'm so old, thanks, jerk), but thinking back when I was 15, and poking her soft head when she was an infant, to me she seems all growns up and I miss those head poking days. 
Anyway, Connor mostly slept on the way and we got to Amherst. The first place we went to was Bueno Y Sano. Here's what Heather got:

$20 at Mighty Subs

So, I haven't blogged for a while. Sorry, no one. I took some pictures of food in the meantime, of course. But if I did a blog about each one, it would just be titled, "Crappy Photo of Food No One Cares About." Then I spent $20 at Mighty Subs yesterday. So now I present "Crappy Photo of Food That Only Everyone in the World Cares About":

Are you guys amazed at how awesome that photo is? I will just assume your answer is yes. So to placate your need for more crappy food photos, I have another angle:

Food! That is a small hamburger sub with onions and mustard. The hamburger sub is for my mother-in-law. Are the condiments MO or OM? I'll go with MO. 

I also got a large Buffalo Chicken Cutlet sub with LTPO and blue cheese. LTPOBC? That's a shitty acronym. Let's go with BOLT PC, that's better. Combine it with the other one and we have BOLT COMP. Woah, that's actual words. 

What else is in the photos? Oh that's just a giant order of fries.

Anyway, I got a crap load of food with BOLT COMP and fries for $20.  
I guess I should end this blog soon. Oh, to end the blog really randomly, and to celebrate my favorite Olympics ever, here is the best photo from the Olympics:
Jessica Ennis, Gary 'Mani' Mounfield, Jimmy Page, Pete Reed, John Squire, Alan 'Reni' Wren, Bradley Wiggins, Mick Jones and Ian Brown
In the photo are all of the Stone Roses, three British gold medalists, oh and the guitarists for Led Zeppelin and the Clash. First, I love that in a group including five famous musicians, soon-to-be-Sir Wiggins, a guy that rides a bike for a living, looks the coolest. Second, if you told me to pick nine British people to hang out with,that photo would basically be the photo from that evening. I guess in this imaginary scenario you created (you jerk), I'm taking the photo since I'm not in it.

In conclusion, good luck, Rio.
