Someone mentioned the Dugneness Spit at poetry group on Monday and it sounded like an intriguing nature walk, so I looked it up the next day, which led me to reading about dungeness crab, which made me really want to buy and eat one. I've never done that before. Have you? I feel ashamed, having grown up so close to the Dungeness's namesake. I guess you buy them pre-cooked and everything (they boil them on the ship because they go bad rapidly when you take them out of their ocean home). So Curtis and I are having a crab feast tonight! I am going to go pick up my crab at the market today. I also really want to go to this: http://www.crabfestival.org.

CRAB GRAB.

I have heard they are delicious, but huge! I don't know how I'd like them, having grown up on Blue Crabs steamed in Old Bay; full report needed!

I've only had dungeness crab in things--never on its own. (Blue Water Bistro makes amazing dungeness macaroni and cheese.) We used to go fishing all the time when I was a kid and catch blue crabs, but back then I was convinced that shrimp was the only thing in the water worth eating.

A big crab party would be awesome! Lots of wine and newspapers and crab juice dripping down everyone's arms. So would a field trip to the Dungeness Spit.

Blue crabs are so mean, all running around the dock trying to grab your toes, so I never understood why anyone would want to eat them. It's a lot better, I think, when they're already dead when you get them. Of course, that's true with everything.

Mmmm. All you guys need for getting crabs (har har) are a couple of bibs, melted butter, and some nutcrackers.
