Ok, I’ll play

Ran across this over on the Very Good Taste blog. Looks like it might be kinda fun, so here’s what you do:

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 at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

and here’s mine:
