Gastronome

GastronomeAndrew stared into his plastic take-away container in confusion. He poked at the contents with a spork, but they still insisted on looking like the insides of a Ghilmn demon. Spearing an orange-striped crescent, he brandished it at Dawn. "What is this?"

"Tiger prawn." She was attacking her own lunch with relish.

"And this?" Andrew picked up what looked like a large, white rubber band.

"That's calamari," Rachel explained, popping a baby octopus into her mouth. "It's a squid."

Andrew shuddered. London may be a culinary adventure for the girls, but he drew the line at eating things with tentacles.

Andrew's not adventurous in his food, but given that it might look like a demon he fought, you can't blame him!

I can't see Sunnydale being a centre of dining excellence, but the lad does need to stretch his horizons a little now he's out in the real world.

One final thing...
Since you defriended me, you won't be able to read this anymore through your Memories, what with my LJ being friends-locked. But since I did write it for you, I don't want to deprive you of sillygiggles.

Prime Time

Holovision Program Guide for 10-03-2654

12:00 AM PST: Chatting with Cyber Cindy presents an all-new, controversial chat special: "Tentacle Monsters, and the People who Love Them".

Overview: Scandal erupts when Earthlings reveal their forbidden, sordid love affairs with Europa’s Tentapods.

What can you expect from tonight’s special? In a rare interview, Cyber Cindy dropped the following tantalizing hint:

"Well, I don’t want to give anything away to our viewers. But I will admit that I’ve had to double my security. With ten arms, those Tentapods can be tough customers in a brawl."

Tune in tonight to find out what happens!

Maybe he's just seen the insides of too many demons to appreciate seafood.

Silly Andrew! Calamari is good. (I like his visual assessment of the food, though. It does seem to be a very in-character simile.)

Associating food with bad things can really put you off it and Andrew would have seen more nasty things than most. Maybe they should have blind-folded him first.
