FOODIE FRIDAY (part deux) for March 6, 2009


I'm not sure which annoys me more--

a) The omission of the necessary hyphen (for clarity, it really should be pizza-making details), or

b) The use of the word "crusty" here. I get it--pizza has a crust. But it grosses me out to hear any food item referred to as crusty. Crusty food just doesn't sound very appetizing--and in fact, I think just thinking about it makes me lose my appetite!

Have a fabulously un-crusty day, everyone! :)

I agree on the "crusty" thing too. But the first time I read it, I interpreted the "crusty" to modify "details." Crusty details do not sound appetizing at all.

"Crusty details"...ewww! You're right--that's definitely NOT an appetizing thought! :)

Ugh. I just ate some pizza. Glad I finished it before I read this. ;)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! I hope it wasn't crusty pizza! :)

Crusty...*wrinkles nose*...you SO dont wanna know where my mind went with that one!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL! Don't be shy, LadyStyx; if you've got a dirty joke to share regarding the word "crusty" (ewww!), I can't think of a better place than here to tell it! :)

Bridgete said...

Well, it was cold leftover pizza, but no, it wasn't crusty. ;)

I had pizza for dinner tonight, it wasn't too crusty.

I'm also bothered by healthified. Is that even a proper word?

Crane said...

Is it possible to healthify something? I'd like to try it on this gigantic slice of cake....

@ Bridgete and ChicagoLady: I am very relieved to hear your pizza wasn't crusty! :)

@ ChicagoLady and Crane: Great minds think alike! I don't think that's a proper word, but for some reason, it doesn't bother me too much, probably because I'm guilty of making up random words, too...Sephora-ing and Grammarphile are two of my favorites. ;)
