Just For Fun

OK, this is fun! This is from Do you have the spirit of adventure in your food? Do you wonder if your diet is boring?

Here's the simple rules:
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. (I'll try anything once, remember!)4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

I'm sending you a box of Pocky. I don't think Poutine would travel well.
