MEME: Saturday Six - Episode 173

Patrick removed his head from the video editor long enough to observe, “I don’t know about anyone else, but with temperatures hovering around 100 for the past week, with heat indices topping out around 118°, I‘m ready for wintertime.”

“I stop short of pointing to “global warming” for this immediate bout of hot weather, since it is August and summer. If you can’t expect unreasonably warm, even uncomfortable weather at this time of the year, then you’ve missed a memo.”

“Before this week’s questions, BookGal of “Books, Memes and Musings” was first to play last week. Congratulations, BookGal!”

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. What is your favorite flavor of chicken wings? How many do you generally order at a time?
Tyson's Honey Barbecue are what I get most often. I buy them by the 2 pound bag, there's about three dozen to a bag. I also buy a quart jar of Lighthouse Chunky Bleu Cheese dressing to go with them.

2. How often do you check out a restaurant’s nutrition information before going there to have dinner? Almost never, unless there's a really long wait in line and I have nothing else to read.

3. If you have ever done so, what was your biggest surprise in reading the calorie or fat counts? The actual size of “servings” used to calculate these percentages bear no resemblance to real world practices.

4. Take the quiz: What does your pizza say about you? Warning – pretentious twaddle alert – some twenty-something, wet behind the ears has crafted a bullshit quiz about pizza pie.

What Your Pizza Reveals

Your appetite is pretty average. You don't go overboard - but you don't deprive yourself either.

You aren't particularly picky about pizza. It's so good... how could you be? You fit in best in the Western part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices.

You are cultured and intellectual. You should consider traveling to Vienna.

The stereotype that best fits you is emo. You think you're special... and you kind of are.

What Does Your Pizza Say About You?

5. What style of food do you think is generally served at what you’d consider the most romantic of restaurants? A confused, romanticized take on true French cuisine. I have a general aversion to such places – pretentious and silly. The Michelin star restaurants I am familiar with bear no resemblance to the bullshit that passes as romantic here in the USA.

6. What type of food would you be likely to sample first: food that is hot and spicy or food that is more mellow but has a richer taste? I'll sample the hot and spicy first on general impulse and then the more complex offerings after I've jolted the system awake.
