1. Are you a vegetarian? Vegan?
Nope. Me eat meat. Mmmmmeat. But I am an omnivore; I also eat old Omni magazines. Er, I mean vegetables.
2. What's your favorite food?
Aww, I have so many... hamburgers, tacos, fish & chips, fried rice...
3. White bread or whole wheat?
Whole wheat. White's good too if there's no wheat.
4. What's for breakfast?
Lunch. I'm-a an artist. I get to wear old clothes, and I don't hafta get uppa till noon.
5. You're making a Dagwood sandwich. What's in it?
Mostly Buddig products. Beef, ham, honey ham, turkey... then there's Swiss cheese, pickles, or relish if there's no pickles, ooo is there any lettuce left over from making Dad's salads? Maybe some red wine vinaigrette dressing like they use at Quizno's, though I don't know how they get it so thick. Cornstarch is NOT the answer; I tried that once.
6. What's on your pizza?
Beef, black olives, onions, mushrooms. Usually I order a Supreme, and tell them to leave off the pepperoni if I don't want a lot of spice.
7. Coffee, tea, milk, or soda?
Soda. I like Mountain Dew for lunch, Sprite for dinner, and Dr Pepper twice a month.
8. Dark, milk, or white chocolate?
Milk chocolate, although dark is good in certain contexts. Occasionally I like white chocolate, despite cries of "That's not chocolate!" from the purists.
9. Teetotal, beer, wine, or hard liquor?
Teetotal. I simply have no interest in alcoholic beverages.
10. Does cilantro taste like citrus, or like soap?
People think it tastes like citrus? Blaagh! SOAP!
11. Is chorizo the greatest thing ever or is it totally disgusting?
Never tried it.
12. Do you use garlic like a vegetable or like a spice?
A spice, although I think I've dined at restaurants that put chunks of garlic in my pasta. It was yummy. :}
13. Onions: raw, cooked, or not at all?
Raw (as long as they don't have those horrible mouth-burning green streaks running through them), sautéed, or batter-fried into onion rings.
14. Does broccoli taste sweet or bitter?
Some people think it tastes bitter? It's sweet enough for me.
15. How do you feel about fish?
Love it, as long as it's fileted! I love flounder, cod, tuna, mahi-mahi, tilapia, salmon as long as it's not grilled, and sardines.
16. How about sushi?
California rolls and other veggie sushi are yummy. I haven't tried the raw fish varieties, but I think I might like them, because I went to a trendy place once and had an ahi tuna steak sandwich, and the tuna was partly raw. I tried it, and it was good!
17. Fave ethnic cuisine?
Chinese! Others are good too. I don't think I've tried a cuisine anywhere that didn't have something I liked.
18. What's your favorite fruit?
Apples (not the misnamed Red Delicious; I prefer gala or jonagold), pears, navel oranges, peaches (preferably freestone), seedless grapes. The supermarket recently had a display of mangoes, and I like mango ice cream and mango juice, so I got some to try. They're sort of like peaches, but much harder and messier to eat. The skin has to be peeled off and there's a stone that's bigger and clingier than any peach stone. I think in the future I'll stick to mango ice cream and juice.
19. Cheese - thumbs up or thumbs down?
Depends on variety and context. Cheeseburger? No. Cheese cubes on toothpicks? Nope. But I will have pizza, cheesesteaks, Cheetos, American cheese on my turkey and ham at Subway, and I used to demand no cheese on my tacos but I don't do that anymore.
20. Finally, favorite dessert?
Ice cream. Chocolate silk pie. Apple pie. Ooo, or rice pudding if it's not too thin like that stuff at that one Indian restaurant that one time. That was the first time I'd ever tried rice pudding, and I didn't learn until later that it's not supposed to be all watery and runny like that. The Brown Bag Deli at Anthrocon sells little tubs of rice pudding that is deee-licious!
