*tap tap tap*

Hello.

Good-bye Vox! They finally made it clear that they've done what they're gonna do regarding a blogroll. You have to put in each link by hand. No thanks, that's why Blogrolling was invented.

So, in the greatest tradition of blogging I give you a new test/quiz/watchamacallit:

The rules:

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 and at Very Good Taste, linking to your results.

Cynical and I have parenthetically added a few comments and definitions to the list.

Hey there! I'm glad you've left Vox -- I could never remember my username and/or password so I never could leave you comments. (Don't pretend like you didn't miss me.) ;-P

Of course I missed ya! And that having to have an account to comment was another annoyance.
