    I find it interesting that you didn’t cross out roadkill.

    Looking at that list makes me realize there is a ton of shit I have never tried but I really, really should. How did I get to be a food slacker?

  2. Diana Says:

    Oh, god. I can’t believe I forgot to cross of roadkill. Consider it crossed off! 🙂

  3. Julie Says:

    I was thinking of getting Kobe beef for Bill for his birthday. He talks about wanting it every single week.

  4. Jess Says:

    Oh, I wasn’t judging. For all we know, it could be some delicacy or something. I mean, if you hit a deer with your car and then butcher it and eat it, isn’t that kind like hunting? I mean, hunting with your car and not a gun or bow. Technically, you killed it on a road …

  5. Diana Says:

    Also, Barb pointed out that I have had Pocky – apparently I just flaked on what it was when I went through the list. I’m an idiot, sometimes. Well, in the interest of full disclosure, most of the time.
