This is a burst of food vocabulary, and also American food culture. Would you consider these foods to be representative where you come from? If you were compiling a similar list, what would you include? Whenever you're done perusing this list, take a look around the WiseGeek website. There are lots of interesting questions and answers. It's great for your English, of course, but maybe you won't even notice, if you are absorbed in what you are learning.
Two spaces after a period instead of one? Maybe it's the same to you, but it jumps out as an error to me – and I'm not the only one. CV? Email? Report? Don't let your reader think you don't pay attention to detail, or that your missive isn't important enough to you to take the time to reread and fix it before sending. Now you know.
Steve Jobs met Bob Dylan in 2004 and afterward relayed this anecdote about Dylan: “He was just telling me about his life and about writing his songs. He said, ‘They just came through me, it wasn’t like I was having to compose them. That doesn’t happen anymore, I just can’t write them that way anymore.’ Then he paused and said to me with his raspy voice and little smile, ‘But I still can sing them.'”
"...as Mr. Dylan himself has said, his songs “didn’t get here by themselves.” The influences that have informed Mr. Dylan’s work are legion. Early on, Country and Western music. Later, the rock ’n’ roll of Chuck Berry and Little Richard. In his teens, he discovered folk musicians like Odetta, and became enamored of Woody Guthrie, even imitating Guthrie’s Oklahoma twang. He arrived on the Greenwich Village folk scene in New York in January 1961, and continued absorbing folk and traditional songs wherever he could find them — from fellow performers, from books like Alan Lomax’s “Folk Songs of North America,” and from records. And not only other music inspired him — poetry, literature and film have all made their way into his work." –The New York Times
Personally speaking, I don't think much about fashion. Still, this article, its photos and links had me clicking and reading for more time than I want to admit. Whether you care much about fashion, your own or anybody else's, there is loads of food for thought here, and plenty to please the eye as well, not to mention great vocabulary. Coterie of bloggers, anyone?
