Saturday afternoon boredom

I stole this from jemangelaville.com. This list is the 100 things that Very Good Taste thinks everyone should eat at least once in their life.

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

    Two comments:

    1) Eel – omg, I love you so.

    2) Durian – smells awful, tastes great (or so I’ve been told). Beware going in.

    Oh, one more.
