    All you fatties need less StyleForum in your life. Take a look at the Top 10 posters on this board. They all share one similarity and it ain't a healthy lifestyle (hint: it's morbid obesity).

    Neo, I think you and GreenFrog should get together as you are both apparently quite willowy in build and would make an attractive couple.

    I'd rather date Conne. At least his career is going places.

    how can you have BBQ without some good cornbread. I think I will make some tomorrow. Perhaps roast and chop some poblano peppers. I wished I had my mom's recipe. That's was the shiiiiizzzz. It wasn't sweet and did not have a fine texture. mmmm.....

    ^ my college roommate and I used to make some pretty off the wall cornbread with finely chopped habaneros and a brown sugar, crumbly top. sometimes we'd add some raisins into the mix as well.. the sweet & spicy combo was just delicious.

    Cornbread should not be sweet.

    To steal a quote from Hugh Acheson: "Cornbread should not have sugar in it. That's cake."


    Do they at least give you a big slice of white bread? I actually prefer that to cornbread with BBQ, and I love cornbread.

    At Hill Country in DC they have some bread from Texas that is made with a ton of butter. It is the most amazing bread in the world. I can never remember the name though, I think it has butter in the name.

    Barbecue is something you eat, not something you do.


    This is the truth.

    I never noticed when I was living in Korea. My friends did tease, though, that was I was very Korean for a Westerner - perhaps that's why I didn't notice or care.

    How come so many Chinese women use Grace as their Anglicized name?

    I don't think it is and Anglicization of anything--just a common English name amongst Chinese American women. I have no idea why it is seemingly more popular, but a couple of guesses:

    1. Lots of Chinese Americans are Christian.
    2. As an immigrant group, Chinese Americans are generally less familiar with which names are fashionable amongst the mainstream and disproportionately select names that are traditional but presently less common.

    I don't actually know if the women I have in mind are Chinese-American or not. It occurred to me because we have a lot of visiting professors here, and the nameplates on their offices often have "Grace" written in parentheses between Chinese-looking first and last names.

    My Anglicized name is "Dutch" (named myself after pro wrestler Dutch Mantel).

    Regardless, it is difficult to Anglicize most Chinese names. Chinese Americans born here are typically given an official and social name in English and a completely unrelated Chinese name that usually exists just for the sake of tradition. Even when I've visited family in Taiwan who can only speak Chinese, I'm still called "Matthew." Well, more like "Meh - tiu." In contrast, my Chinese name sounds completely different and virtually nobody ever uses it.
