Dear AK

Ok, so you did this food meme a while back on your blog a while ago…..and it sort of got stuck in my mind because i’ve eaten a number of really odd things in my life. So friendster, even though you were kind enough not to tag me, because i hate memes, I will do it anyway…..hurray hurray another meme done via a letter:)

Now, if I understood the instructions correctly I’m supposed to
1. Bold the ones I’ve had
2. Strike through the ones that would make my great-grand kids gag from the after taste.
3. Italicise potential delicacies….stuff that would go down with a double shot of tequila.

Unfortunately we have a slight problem. After bugging you on msn to find out how on earth I’m supposed to strike through stuff on blogger, and finding out that you cheated when you did the post to begin with, i decided to change the rules ever so slightly. So, the Ruby instructions are as follows:
1. Bold the ones I’ve had
2. Italicise the ones that would make my great-grand kids gag from the after taste
3. Everything else will go down well with a double shot of tequila…..even the italicised ones..ha!

  1. you ate snail….yukky….I cant get my head around eating snails. I always think of the garden variety.Ive actually eaten alot more stuff on that list than i thought i would have.

  2. Okay, this may sound like a dumb question, but what is a “meme”? I get that it’s sort of a list that each person fills out, but does it stand for anything? Anyway, my worst was tripe. Not that original or weird, but Yeuch! Could almost taste the stomache acid…

  3. Yeeeuuuggghhh….I was fine until I read the comment about tripe…and the fact that you would actually eat Haggis…WTF?? No amount of tequila would make me eat either.

  4. my friend…you didn’t read the instructions properly….haggis is in italics….which means that i think my great grand children will gag on it!!! helooooooooo!!!!!!!! focus!!!!!!!!!!!
