This or That - REVEALED!

  1. Stick shift - Driving's so much more fun when you have something to do with your left foot.
  2. Books - I'm really indifferent to movies; sitting in one place for two hours seems like such a waste of time and I love losing myself in a book.
  3. Broccoli - I'll eat squash, if I have to, but I'd much rather eat a cruciferous vegetable.
  4. Butter - like it's a question?
  5. Cast iron - neither of them can go in the dishwasher, but cast iron is cheap and lasts forever and is enormously versatile.
  6. Cats - dogs smell when they get wet, and they jump on you and stick their noses in your crotch, and they have to be walked.
  7. Eau D'hadrien - hello, citrus!
  8. Cheez Doodles - preferably in a blue bowl.
  9. Lemon - I will always choose the fruit dessert over the chocolate one, and lemon trumps 'em all.
  10. Danny Meyer - I haven't read the Twilight books but I've eaten in Danny Meyer's restaurants and my favorite recipe for Brussels sprouts is from the Union Square Cafe cookbook.
  11. Elvis Costello, a/k/a Declan Patrick Aloysius Macmanus - again, was it really a question?
  12. Spring - it's so full of hope.
  13. Salt water - I grew up swimming in the ocean, and in a salt water pool, and to this day I think fresh water is weird.
  14. Gin - why drink something with no taste?
  15. Miracles of modern technology - a) I'm an atheist, b) IVF brought me my daughter
  16. Shell steak - grilled over charcoal, with a tomato salad and corn on the cob. Lobster does nothing for me.
  17. Mets - National League. End of story.
  18. The Four Temperaments - just a perfect ballet to a fabulous piece of music.

Love your comment on 14.

That said, I detest gin.

I'm getting a blue bowl so I can be ready if ever you come to visit.

And some gin.

I've driven both standard and automatic and while standard is fun at times...it SUCKS to be sitting in traffic for hours with your foot down on the clutch. BLURG. So until I stop commuting, I won't go back to stick.
