Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

THREE PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO TAKE THIS QUIZ NOW ::
Well, I think that's it. Which reminds me, I want to do that food quiz thing. Let me find it and I'll be right back.
OK here I am. And yes I had a pee, no I didn't sleep and no one hugging me... that's ok. Here goes, from over at Chaosdaily's:
According to the BBC, these are the fifty foods to eat before you die (the idea is to cross out the ones that you've eaten). GW adds, donít cross off anything if you havenít eaten it under the listed name.
Not much but a bit. Once or twice when I was young and my dad fished.
It's ok. Good with garlic butter. I feel bad for the lobsters.
i admit I am a sucker for med-rare filet mignon
Mmm, there are quite a few good thai restaurants here. I love the curry stuff, esp green curry, and anything with peanut sauce or coconut cream
Well, that's pretty vague. I suppose it covers everything from dim sum, to American Chinese Take Out to Cantonese. So yup.
Well, really, of course!
And who hasn't eaten pizza in North America?
Egads, these hot butchy dykes took me out to eat huge snow crabs in San Fran once. nice
Well, that covers everything and its dog as well, eh! Yup.
Yup. Usually in some asian food resto. I used to dislike shrimp and prawn, but now they're ok.
11. Moreton Bay Bugs
OK I'm stumped. No idea what that is
I love New England Clam Chowder (the creamy one) but dislike the tomatoey one. urp
I like pretty much anything done on a Barbecue. Well, chicken brochettes or filet mignon is best eh! I am not so crazy about pork or ribs
I've had various types. I really like the buckwheat Ethiopian ones, and French crepes.
I live for pasta. No, I live because of pasta
These are ok. Lots of people here have huge bowls of them, with frenchfries and beer. I can take or leave em
I am not so into lamb, nor mutton. I think it tastes like licking a barn floor. Yes, even with mint sauce. no thanks
OMG I could live FOR cream tea! Bring on the cream tea! Here I don't think you can even get clotted cream, let alone nice scones. MMM. Best cream tea I experienced was in a restaurant at Land's End, on a cliffside in England, with the sea bashing up foam against the window. mmm. Cream tea. They also serve it on British Airways. A good reason to fly to England with them instead of Air Canada
Nope, don't think so.
Yah, they're ok. Again, I can live without them. I'm not a seafood junkie
Hard not to have eaten chocolate. It's up there with pizza in this society. There is a lot of REALLY BAD chocolate. I like not very sweet very dark chocolate. Mmm
Um, yeah, I think I have tried sandwiches. I think it is one of those categories like Chinese food or pasta, that goes on in infinite variations forever.
Greek food Ahh, another thing like the chinese food... there is the fast food variety and the real variety. I've eaten both. The real variety has excellent fresh ingredients, and lots of fish. Pretty darn good
Some burgers are ok... I do like them best barbecued, and juicy. Many burgers just taste too much like dead cow. Cheese and mustard are good
Mmm, Mexican food. mmm. San Fran has tons of mexican food. Strangely mexicans seem to have really greasy bad corn chips. Weirdly they are better in Montreal. More corn, less grease.
Haha, I had this in Spain. It's ok. Kind of like octopus. It is better fried than all wiggly squiggly
American diner breakfast
What does that mean? I suppose the same breakfasts we have here at the coffeeshop but in a diner. Eggs, hashbrowns, sausages, toast? yup. Best when you've done an allnighter
Canned, fresh, frozen, smoked. Yup.
Yup, a couple times. I think the last time was as fondue.
32. Guinea pig
OMG Shark was the "catch of the day" when I was in Nova Scotia for my birthday once. It was like chicken imbibed with butter. It was so nonfishy, and melt in your mouth. MY GOD. mmm. good fish
mmm, I had only homemade vegetarian sushi at potlucks until Mi*dori came to town and took us to a real sushi place and ordered. The raw quail eggs are great, as are the trout eggs i think they were. omg it can be so good. Who knew.
yup, but I'd like it again, done by someone who really knows what they're doing
I don't think I have. Maybe but I don't think so
Yup. Actually lamb kebabs are not half bad, now that I've dissed lamb. hehe
I've had these once and I don't think the cook was very good so I don't think I can make a fair assessment. They were blah and overcooked
40. Australian meat pie
Is this how we eat the kangaroo??
I love mango. Very good in thai curry at home, as mango dessert, in salads, or just fresh like that, esp in the bath. Makes me feel decadent and like I'm living in the sun. Also good in juices
MWAHAHAHAHA!! Me and ob so wanted to try this. It is called "King of Fruit" and is supposed to taste heavenly even though it smells like natural gas or something rotting. Sorry it tasted like natural gas or something rotting. I tried not to breathe while eating it, (well drinking it since we had it in one of them tapioca drinks in chinatown) but I still burped that smell then farted that smell for a whole day. Never never again.
Yup. It's ok. I haven't had a big octopus though. I googled pics of octopus for a contract once, and you can see huge chunks of arm. I have never eaten it like that.
Ribs CAN be ok, I usually like if they are well-cooked and not fatty. I'm not crazy about them
It can be ok. Again, no fat. I like when it is pink inside and juicy, and the outside is very browned, and there is juice with it. Good with yorkshire pudding
I ate tapas all the time in Spain. Bar food. It is the cheapest way to eat out in Spain. Spanish omelet is ok. Also ate squid as tapas.
47. Jerk chicken/pork
I'm not going to cross this off cuz I don't remember. This is sort of spiced dryish meat, jamaican?? I am not sure
Yes in various guises. It is nice when it breaks under your teeth, and is salty. I like salty
Um, it isn't Cornish pastry, it is Cornish PASTY, no R. Yup. It is a little dry, at least when I had it in England. It's ok. Jamaican pasty is better.
Whoever cut and paste this to start with must have corrected it. I just googled it and the original BBC site for this list of 50 Must Foods has it listed as Pasty. Here's their website. And I just discovered that they tell you about these foods with a picture. So now I can see what jerk chicken is, and that other coupla foods I have no clue about!
Cheers! And take care to spell pasty pasty! Esp if it goes on your nipples! hehe
NIte nite! it is now 6:28 am, so I think I better hit the sack. Pictures of the dog gang book tomorrow. I got alot done today so I should finish not too late tomorrow.
Now of course i shouldn't think that... I have "The Panic Room" with Jodi Foster on dvd here, as the free extra video with the rental the other night, and it will now be tempting to actually find time to sit and watch it! eek!
