Hi, Shy Guys

A few weeks ago I decided to pay closer attention to blog stats. Wheee, blog stats! Numbers! Graphs!

I'm heartened to see a number of people visiting each day -- or maybe it is one very enthusiastic person -- and I'm curious who you might be. I'm not a big commenter on the blogs I like, so I won't put you on the spot. But if you've come here a few times, hello. I won't grill you as to why you come by, because that might be annoying, but I will ask you one question, for the heck of it:

What's your favorite kind of sandwich?

Put it in the comments, if you're inclined. Regular comment friends, you are welcome to join as well.

My favorite sandwich is the grilled cheese in all of its 1,000 variations.

Monday hugs, people. Have a super week!

Oddly enough the tuna sandwich or a torta. I don't often eat tortas but they are sooooo good! What about the characters?

Wilfair Book said...

Erika! I've missed you. I was thinking about you just yesterday.

Mmm, torta. And I love a good tuna melt myself though I'll take a tuna sandwich in a pinch.

A sandwich post is a great idea! Watch for it.

I try to drop by everyday but leaving comments from my phone can be tres annoying because this little text box hates me. So I seek a clam state of mind of the will to drag out the laptop :)

Wilfair Book said...

No worries. I'm happy with people's busy lives that they can stop by at all. Just know you're missed if I don't see you for a few days. :)

Meatball sub. Mmm...

Mine's a toss-up between grilled cheese and a particular chicken salad sandwich from a local place. It's grilled chicken salad, cheddar cheese, tomato and BACON on toasted sourdough. It's awesome. But sometimes all I want is the grilled cheese.

Sidenote: Bacon is pretty much my favorite thing. I like it better than steak, or salmon, or...well, you get the idea. And it must always be in caps.

Carly said...

Oh, and I too am curious about the favorite sandwiches of the characters!

Wilfair Book said...

Meatball sub: hello. And can I add I'm a fan of when the bread gets a bit soggy with sauce? Gah. I want one for breakfast. Wait. I had breakfast, so it would be my second breakfast. Mmm, second breakfast.

Bacon: I was just thinking about making these bacon bowls for salad this weekend. http://www.notmartha.org/archives/2008/02/27/bacon-cups/

Mmm, probably a eggplant parmesan grinder (otherwise known as a sub). Or anything with avocado.

Wilfair Book said...

I definitely have avocado issues. In that I have no problem eating a whole one in a single sitting. I actually fill up the pit hollow with Cholula sauce and enjoy it that way. Spicy!

Eggplant is yummy but it has to be sliced thin for me. The texture is just so, well, eggplanty. Parmesan and breadcrumbs do help.

Erika said...

Mmm cholula

wealhtheow said...

Maybe falafel and tahini. Or a really good black bean burger with avocado.

Wilfair Book said...

wealhtheow: Mmm, tahini. Yummy. If you're ever in the Los Angeles area, there's a great falafel sandwich at a stand inside Farmers Market, which is mentioned in the books.

Actually, we may visit the stand one day, when I set a date for a "Wilfair"-themed walking tour. Please join if you're nearby! Tahini and sightseeing, two good things.

Thanks also for jumping in. If I can ever post anything for you, please shout; I love taking requests.

Wilfair Book said...

Erf. I promised not to grill you if you commented. I got excited. Anywho, thanks again, wealhtheow!

I was JUST in the neighborhood last week. I actually live in Virginia but the in-laws are from the Valley and my family is up behind the Redwood Curtain. Taking the wee lad to visit some family. Anyhoo, I finally went to the La Brea Tar Pits (and took many pictures of sinister bubbling tar bubbles) and then off to the Peterson museum, where I forced my husband to take a pic of me at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax. We drove by Farmers Market but didn't wind up stopping.

But I make my own tahini. SO easy and quick and yummy. And I usually make my own falafel.

Wilfair Book said...

I don't want to wig you out but this comment made my eyes damp. I can't believe you had your husband take your photo at Wilshire and Fairfax! Seriously. You made my day.

Sinister tar bubbles! I hope you visited my favorite bubble. It is more inside the park than in the main pit. If you saw it you totally know it. It pops over and over and over. You can't not watch it.

The Redwood Curtain! I'm kind of obsessed with Humboldt County. What town, if I might ask?

No joke, wealhtheow, you have made my day. Did you know the Petersen was at Wilshire and Fairfax before you visited? Or were you like, wait, I read a book set at this corner?

Btw, if I had driven through that intersection and seen a guy taking a woman's photo I would have been like, in my heart, "oh, wouldn't that be fun if she read 'Wilfair' and that's why she's getting her photo taken on that corner?" Then I would have scolded myself for daydreaming something too awesome.

wealhtheow said...

We were going to the Petersen ANYWAY, because the husband is a huge car geek. I didn't know it was at the corner, but I told him that since we were right in that area we had to get a picture of me at the corner and we would be walking around until we found it.

I did visit your bubble. It was mesmerizing, in a rather disturbing way.

I grew up in Arcata. Well, half in the OC, and half in Arcata. But I was always a NorCal girl, even when I lived in SoCal, which caused me no end of problems. Moving to Arcata was like finally discovering my tribe.

Wilfair Book said...

I was so hoping you'd say Arcata. I placed the Innigma Hotel around the Lost Coast so I could one day write about my Arcata amour. In a recent travel piece I did I actually told Arcata, directly, at the end of the piece, that I loved it. It was very forward. But I'm overcome with emotion, sometimes.

That tar bubble is indeed both mesmerizing and disturbing. You nailed it. I'm also laughing that you now know the bubble. I might have to film it and put it on the blog. Glop, glop, glop.

Glad your husband got to see the Petersen. Next time you're in the Valley with the in-laws, you guys might stop by this auto-filled wonderland. It is huge. And free! http://www.nethercuttcollection.org/

So I realize I completely fluttered all over your comments when I vowed to be totally relaxed when people weighed in on the sandwich topic. I have an enthusiasm issue. I'm a very enthusiastic person, which is a positive, mostly, but sometimes? Yeah. I have to dial it down.

Thanks for taking a pic at Wilshire/Fairfax, thanks for the Arcata awesomeness, and thanks for talking tahini. (Btw, The 500 Dip Bar serves a few versions of the dish, of course. Mmm.)

I'm impressed you make your own and your own falafel, too.

ciabatta with tomato and avocado. Holy yum.

FYI, wealhtheow and I are planning to to bring snoods back in style. :)

Wilfair Book said...

Jamila6452: Ciabatta! Oh, hello. One of my favorites. My husband says bread makes the sandwich and if ciabatta is involved, it is usually a winner. This combo sounds delish.

Love the snoods comment. I think they're pretty cute. I'll do a snood post, soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
