Omnivore's Meme

Dearest Angie, upon noticing I haven't posted in nearly 3 weeks (where have I been?...school), has tagged me for the Omnivore Meme. Being sick and laid up (the school germs have caught up with me), I will now complete it and tag some others.

This Omnivore 100 meme from Omnivore Herbivore Carnivore, in turn via Andrew at Very Good Taste.

How It All Works:
1) Copy the list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out (or italicize) any items that you would never consider eating

I'm surprised at the number I have tried, but there are many other things I'd like to try. I didn't cross out any, as I am not opposed to trying anything (even the cigar, though I am a strict non-smoker, because my dad smoked cigars and the smell alone is enough to make me long for him).

I tag Leslie (as she hasn't posted in a year), Heather (to keep her blog going), and Jen (because she has spent several months in Thailand and has therefore probably tried many things the rest of us haven't).

I'll try to post more, Angie. Thanks for keeping me in check :-).

After posting, I realize how difficult my font is to notice the bolding. Too lazy to go back and redo it. Just look closely :-).

Les said...

Ha! That's what my comment was going to be.
Don't try horse. It's mean.

Angie said...

You've had PB&J, surely! Or are you a freak American?

Jen said...

I was thinking the same thing as Angie! I don't like thme but I've tried them!

EWH said...

Yes, yes. Of COURSE I've had PB & J!! I love it. An oversight, I assure you. I have corrected it. All is well in the world again.
