The blogosphere is a strange place, but every once in a while I come by something I find very cool. This was one of those things. This is from http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk:
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 and atwww.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
