    Longest_pizza_2006_620_416_100Pizza - A Poem by BigMelo... While I'm waiting in line; while trying not to whine, a pizza I think I'll order, with a nice, burnt, crusty border. To take a bite, to have a taste! Make it just right, without the haste! And for the sauce, I want to pick one that is warm & also thick. I would like some extra cheese - put some more on, if you please! Last but not least, a lot of topping. Pepperoni, olives - there's no stopping! Now, at last, we have perfection - a pizza made of my selection. :D

    bigmelo liked a comment in Italy Serves Up World's Longest Pizza At Expo Milano 2015.
    Longest_pizza_2006_620_416_100Pizza is simply... well, almost legendary... in Italy! I would love a slice of that perfect, baked to a crisp, over a mile pizza! Who wouldn't, honestly? I am fascinated to learn that pizza with tomato, mozzarella and basil (making my mouth water already) was named after a Queen! Royalty had a lot of impact in those days (still do).. I would love to be royalty in Queen Margherita's time just for a pizza to be named after me! People would love the 'FelicisOwl' pizza (hopefully).. But I've never quite tried Margherita pizza yet, since.. well, I'm not sure if they sell it in America! But I would simply love, love, love to try it! ~FelicisOwl

    51lmohspkol._sl160_You're right, felicisowl! I've heard this story before (not just because I'm Chinese)! I find it a bit ironic that the author just happens to be Chinese; & just happens to share the same last name as another Chinese person I know. :D

    bigmelo liked a comment in The Year of the Book (An Anna Wong novel).
    51lmohspkol._sl160_Okay, it's named The Year of the Book because of the Chinese Lunar New Year. (I study a lot on Asian culture, even though I am not Chinese..) The ancient Chinese people believed that there was a race between some animals to determine who was the fastest on Earth. The rat (because it was very clever and hitched a ride onto the cow) won, so the first year of every cycle is called The Year of the Rat. The second year is The Year of the Ox because the Ox was second. Once the years pass through all of the years of the animals, the cycle starts again, beginning with the year of the Rat. This girl (Anna) likes books more than friends.. or people. She's kind of a bibliophile and loves books A LOT. So that's why it's called Year of the Book because of her Chinese heritage and tradition + the fact that she loves books. I thought I explained this in a past comment to you when you said you didn't understand the title.. oh well. Maybe you didn't see.
