Love it or hate it

The Friday 5 for this week addresses various likes and dislikes.

  1. What food do you like that most people hate?
  2. What food do you hate that most people love?
  3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you?
  4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find attractive?
  5. What popular trend baffles you?

  1. What food do you like that most people hate?
    I love scrapple; most people don't hate it, because how can you hate something you've never tried? But unless they come from Pennsylvania, I don't think that most people would understand it :-) I can't get scrapple in California; I guess scrapple is Pennsylvania soul food ;-) I love lamb; a lot of people (including my spouse) don't. I like liver (beef as well as chicken). I like brussels sprouts quite a lot. I greatly prefer bittersweet chocolate to milk chocolate.

  2. What food do you hate that most people love?
    Mushrooms, I guess. Squid. A lot of people must like mushrooms; they're so prevalent. And I know calamari is popular (I think it tastes like rubber bands). I don't care for carrots. I think "white bread" is a waste of time and ingredients. I just can't get 'into" liking yoghurt; it's sour. I don't care for most wines.

  3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you?
    I don't particularly think Tom Cruise is attractive or appealing... attractive is more than "pretty" and I think he smirks a lot these days.

  4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find attractive?
    I couldn't begin to guess... I don't pay much attention to what "most people" think.

  5. What popular trend baffles you?
    Is rap "music" still popular? That has baffed me since it began. Flash mobs baffle me. These "reality" shows, especially Survivor. Just what is it about Survivor?! Men's suits and ties, especially ties... even more especially when women wear either or both! It's the 21st century and men and women still cling to uncomfortable "fashion" and business" clothing. Many-times-over-sized pants (is this some way to get back at the suits? It's the wrong way). Cell phones everywhere — do these people need so badly to be connected? Piercing. Piercing baffles me a lot.
