Where & what did you eat last night? -- We had steaks, rice and carrots at home.
Are you a good cook? -- I'm a damn good cook, s'long as the wife is cleaning up afterwards...
What’s currently in your fridge? -- Relatively little at the moment - tomorrow is shopping day for us.
Marmite? -- no clue what this is but it sounds like something I'd find dead along US 26.
Do you have a comfort food? -- doesn't everyone? Mine is a bowl of vanilla ice cream with caramel or butterscotch topping. Extra credit for sprinkling dry-roasted peanuts on it.
What’s your favorite restaurant? -- tough one - but Cracker Barrel is probably the one I visit most.
What was your memorable meal? -- Arabian Nights dinner theater.
Do you have a favorite food scene from the movies? -- Food fight in Animal House and when Daryl Hannah eats the lobster in Splash! come to mind.
What’s your favorite cinema snack? -- Popcorn with lots of that "horrible-for-you" theater butter.
Raw fish? -- Absolutely - love sushi ever since I visited Japan, but not a big fan of many forms of sashimi.
What would your last meal be? -- A mile-high lasagna, dripping mozzarella with a bottle of chianti and a few baggets with oil and basil. And a slab of cheesecake for desert.
Which TV cook irritates you the most? -- Graham Kerr.
C'mon, folks. Take your turn with this and let me know you did.

A major concern for any of us that believe in conservative values is that Johnny McAmnesty is NOT a conservative. (Need proof? Try to think of any piece of legislation that his name is associated with that ISN'T liberal in nature... But I digress.) One opportunity he has to rally the base is to select a running mate that doesn't suffer from the same leftard leanings of ol' Juan.
Therefore, being the public-spirited stud that I am I am suggesting that he ask Dr. Condoleezza Rice to join his ticket. There is a lot of upside - she's far smarter than he is, she's far more qualified than he is, she's far more experienced on the global stage than he is, she's a helluva lot better looking than ol' Juan, and just the mention of her name makes the Al Sharpton's, Al Franken's, and Dick Durban's of the world go absolutely apoplectic; spitting and sputtering like an epileptic hooked up to a 60 hertz wall outlet!
By the way; she was forced into making a promise on TV that she wouldn't seek the Presidency. She never made reference to the position of Veep.
Your thoughts or counter suggestions?

Update - 2/27/08 - found an article from last Friday where Dr. Condi stated that she didn't see herself playing a part in this campaign, stating "...it isn't in her genes." While not a categorical rejection, it is pretty firm for her. Crap! Wonder who Juan will end up selecting?
