If you had to live off of one food and one food only for the rest of your life, what would it be? (Nutrition is not a concern.)

That’s a hard question. There are foods I love, like bison ribeye and super white tuna sushi, but I’ve never really thought about whether, or at what point, I could tire of them if I had an endless supply. Having now considered that for a few minutes, I think my best candidate is probably the turkey and havarti (on baguette) sandwich from Boulangerie Nantaise (the French bakery I lived above in Seattle). Even if I somehow came to loathe the taste, I’m sure I’d always enjoy the texture.

I think the key to this sort of decision would be picking something fairly light with a broad flavor profile. A good Chef’s salad might have worked as well. Or maybe a certain kind of spring roll.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin is fantastic. I mean, I was a fan of Circle of the Moon, but this is so much better. Jones and I got the game on about the same day; I’ll have to see how far he’s progressed. I’m up to level 18 myself. I’m trying to beat Legion, the Nation of Fools boss right now.

This is probably the funniest skit from the past season of SNL: The gay couple from Connecticut. Bill Hader is so talented. I really like his Peter O’Toole impression. He and Kristen Wiig are the best people on that show right now.

Gah, yet another post that I’ve made dangerously close to the deadline. I was going to do it earlier, but I got caught up watching Intolerable Cruelty. (Decent movie, kind of like a watered down version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels-meets-The Wedding Crashers.)

    I almost failed this time — apparently my computer’s clock is a minute slow.

  3. Chuk:

    Bill Hader is really good, I hope he stays with them a long time. I like Wiig’s new character Penelope.

  4. Mom:

    I can’t believe you keep posting so late. Its like someone who drives around on fumes for Pete’s Sake. It cost the same whether you keep the tank full or empty. Just blog first thing and get it over with. Make it a habit. Geez.

    I think if I could only have one food type for the rest of my life, I’d try to make it a short one. I’ve never found a food I couldn’t get tired of.

    Re: Chuk: Haha, I love her — “Umm well, I just gave birth to seven baby cows and I’m in Italy right now… yeah…”

    Re: JediBear: See, I figure I could always skip a couple meals if I got too bored with my permanent dish. Hunger’s the best sauce, right?
