An Idiosyncratic Friday Five

1. What food do you like that most people hate? I like lima beans, which is odd, because I'm not fond of vegetables in general, and don't like any other green vegetables at all. I also love black jelly beans. Those seem to be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of food item, and I'd say the majority of people I know are on the "hate it" side. But I like anything licorice-flavored, really.

2. What food do you hate that most people love? Mayonnaise (or, for that matter, Miracle Whip). I'm not very fond of condiments, generally, and prefer to eat my burgers and sandwiches dry when offered a choice. But I really can't stand mayo.

3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you? I'm blanking on any actual names and faces, though I'm sure that if one were to start going through lists of the usual Hollywood pretty-boys there'd be quite a few of them that qualify.

4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find
attractive?
I don't know. I haven't really done a survey as to who people find or don't find appealing. I do vaguely remember getting into a debate with somebody once over whether Nicolas Cage was attractive or not -- I was firmly on the pro side -- but as I recall, the other participant in that discussion was a heterosexual male, and thus perhaps not properly equipped to judge.

5. What popular trend baffles you? Most of them.
