Food I Have Eaten

Via Paul F. and Zeebah

From Andrew Wheeler:

Here’s a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there. Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food - but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.
Here’s what I want you to do:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

I hear you, Lloyd Dobler

I don't want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career -- I don't want to do that.

Stating the obvious

There hasn't been much activity here of late. I've closed comments & trackbacks for now because of the vast amounts of spam. At some point I will upgrade my version of MT, so the site may look wonky for a while.

Flightiness

Last night I accidentally set a toaster oven on fire.

This morning I put in fresh contacts, but my vision was still blurry. Took out the contacts, then removed the old ones that I forgot to take out last night.
