Number 141 - That is the best! I love it! Hmmm, I may have to play along with this list too. Sushi - yuck (well if it's raw, I can't dig that either!). Tomatoes - depends. What about Salsa Monica? Please don't say...

I like this. I think I'll post it, as soon as I'm finished outing my troll! ;)

Kate - I do like Salsa but I don't eat the chunks of tomato. I like spaghetti gravy as long as it doesn't have huge chunks of tomato. Won't even try sushi but I think a lot of it is very pretty to look at.

dirtcrashr - I didn't highlight that one! lol. I will admit to wanting to have done that at one time or another.

tshsmom - I can hardly wait to see it. That troll of yours is a nasty old man. Yuck.

Well thank you Alix - it was a pleasure to read your list!

Yes, our very own tshsmom has been bothered by a nasty, nasty, little troll. He's just so awful in so many ways!

Take care girl. Good to see you again.
