    (I stole that from someone here -- Monsieur Georges, perhaps?  Just full disclosure.)

    Since today is International No Diet Day, if you could eat whatever you wanted all day long without any consequences (digestion, cholesterol, blood pressure, weight gain, etc.) what would you eat?
    How good is your vision? If you wear glasses, do you like plastic or wire frames?
    Have you ever broken any bones?
    In college, were you a serious student who studied all the time, a party animal, or a reasonable combination of the the two?
    1.   Chrusciki!  Or, in a more lavish life, croc en bouche.  Or maybe just the very best ice cream in the world (lookin' at you, FR), Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream.
    2.  Lousy.  No fusion.  Wire, because there are thick prisms in my glasses and the frames are nice and light.
    3.  Fracture to my left hand.  Doing something stupid, of course.
    4.  College?  What is this "college" you speak of?

      Ben and Jerry's re-education camp, stat!

      I had to look up the croc en bouche. Oh my. And the Chrusciki. No savory foods for you? If no consequences, what about all those cheeses you can't have, eh?

      •  Ooooh, didn't think of that. (5+ / 0-)

        Nice, FR!  :)

        Croc en bouche is evil.  Just magnificent.  Like every indulgence you ever wanted rolled into one.

        And chrusciki (which spellcheck wants to be "Christlike" -- go figure) is almost food: fried dough with confectioners sugar.  ;)

        But yes -- the cheese, the evil salamis, the Port, oh my god, the Port!  How I miss that!

          ...I splurge on a nice bottle of expensive port. And then after the holidays I nurse the remains of the bottle for as long as possible into January. :-)

          Back when I had more money, I always kept port and good sherry on hand tucked away into my Art Deco cocktail cabinet.

            the best sake I could find in the area (limited selection, at best).  Sadly, the meds I'm on prohibit them, and my life is so much poorer for it.
