bananas!!

so marp calls up to see what we're to have for dinner.

marp: any ideas for dinner?
me: ...pizza? we haven't had that in ages and it means no cooking.
marp: okay.
me: i want... ok, i want a pizza with loads of bananas, fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, curry, tomato sauce and cheese. no chicken or other meat.
marp: okay.
me: ..but i want, like, LOADS of bananas. like, they always say they put a whole banana on it, i want, like, TWO bananas!
marp: two bananas?!
me: yes! two bananas! mmmmm!
marp: ...i don't think they'll use two bananas. it's too expensive.
me: soo? i'll pay extra for the second banana, how expensive can two bananas be?!
marp: but... two bananas... no.
me: yes!
marp: (pause)
me: come on, if i just plain ate two bananas, it wouldn't be weird, it would just warrant a comment like "whoa, in the mood for bananas, huh?" but because i want two bananas on a pizza, it's "too much"? i want two bananas.
marp: (paaaaaause)
me: oh, i get it. you feel awkward telling the guy you want two bananas on the pizza?
marp: kind of.
me: okay. so... do you want me to call and make the order and you just make the pick-up?
marp: ...yeah.
me: but you'll still have to claim THE BANANA PIZZA when you pick it up..
marp: i'll wear a ski-mask.

i just called and made the order. i was sneaky. i have asked for extra banana before but never seem to get it, so this time i asked how much banana they normaly use (he said they use one whole banana), so i asked them to use two, and yes, i'll pay extra.

i am now extreeeeemely eager to see the result. i will be most annoyed if it doesn't look like two banana's worth of slices on that pizza, hahaha.

in other news: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my MOM! :D :D

You'd think the ski mask thing would be the LOL moment here, but what made me scare the living daylights out of napping man and cats was "whoa, in the mood for bananas, huh?" and I will now actively seek out a situation in which I can put this most excellent phrase to some good use.

hahahahaha :D i had abanana in my camera bag when i went to nin last week and the guy handing out my ticket was all "is that a banana or are you just really excited to see me?" and i said "i like bananas." ...apparently, i'm randomly humorless and completely into bananas lately, haha. :)

Bananas on pizza? That's a new one to me!

(Hilarious story btw :))

it's very good! keep in mind, though, that swedish pizzas are always very thin crust, and the banana works best with curry. the slight saltiness of the cheese and the tomato sauce and the curry really works well with a sweet banana, once it's been in the oven. :D

I've never tasted bananas on pizza, but it seems popular among Swedes everywhere. :D

(It's completely disgusting to my palate, but Swedes do seem to like it an awful lot. JENNIE -- is this a SWEDE THING?)

yes, yes, it is. it is a SWEDE thing, and i'm totally into it. hahahaha. :D eh, it's all that's left now that i don't like any meat on pizza, not even chicken, and certainly not seafood. experimenting with fruit on pizza + neat spices = YUM!

Haha, I felt exactly the same. "Yes, ok, thats funny, but you eat BANANAS on PIZZA???"

hehe. cuuuuute cat! (it's such a yummie pizza, though. i can't order pizza off the menu anymore, i always have them make this special pizza instead. you should try it, just remember, there has to be curry and cheese and tomatoes to go with it for proper yumminess.)

Anton is the cutest cat ever, innit? He's absolutely huge, and absolutely terrified of absolutely everything. He is a tiny, scared kitten in a huge, fat cat-body. Poor little thing. (big thing.)

i know. but remember, i only like tomatoes and bananas once they have been completely slaughtered and cooked. in a way, i am doing the world a service by making sure as many tomatoes and bananas are cut and sliced and properly cremated as possible.

oh, but banana+tomato+curry pizza = SO GOOD. sigh. :D

hehe, marp read your comment and said: "she wants pizza on a banana. sounds like the right proportions for how you want your bananapizza."

seriously, it's yummie. have to be thin-crust, though. :D
