The Omnivore's 100 (Very cool folks)

I found this over at I'm Mad and I Eat and am slightly intrigued. There are a lot of things that I will have to google. But it seems fun and maybe I will venture into trying something new.

Here is how it works:
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. (Ummm.. Not computer savoy enough to know how to so this, so all of my things I would not consider eating will be in italic and color them in red)
4) Optional: Post a comment at Very Good Taste, linking to your results.
