See, we have so much in common (I love this meme, by the way). I also love caipirinhas. Second only to whiskey as my fav alcoholic beverage. Cut grass and coffee? Also two of my favorite smells. Love both Rubber Soul and Revolver, but would probably put Rubber Soul first. However, GEORGE is definitely the best Beatle. ;)

Here's the thing about John. I think he'd find me annoying.

That's why I choose Ringo. That and the fact I can do a spot on Ringo impression "I've got a hole in me pocket guys" from the animated Yellow Submarine.

Some questions: 1. Do you always dress this well when you blog? 2. What's a caipirinha? 3. What were you doing in Brazil?

Also, not that I should be surprised given how much I respect your musical taste, but I am SO with you on the sub-questions to #40!

I discovered caipirinhas a few years ago, and now I love them too.

What a great meme! I'm with Msubulldog: I am absolutely starving for a steak and pommes frites now. . . . Hmm, I'm wondering what ozone (03) smells like.

Now I wish I could change my favourite meal to Steak au Poivre. We had it in this awesome bistro in Paris. The waitresses were old Parisians who looked like they smoked 40 a day and wore frilly white pinafore aprons. It was amazing.
Also, I live on cheese and crackers. That is what I have for lunch probably 4 days out of 5. It takes 2 seconds to make and gets into your mouth quickly and can be eaten one handed (and shared with a toddler). She eats a LOT better than I do.
