Subject: The 'what have I eaten' meme
Security: Public
Yet another meme, this time taken from brisingamen. You know the pack drill:

OK, OK, it's a poor little meme, and it would be mutilating it if I didn't keep the original instructions.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Strike out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

It looks pretty nice, but we're rather short of decent Middle Eastern restaurants round here.
