Heh. I'm a very picky eater. Drives my wife crazy. I don't eat fruits or vegetables, don't like spices, don't like much variety. I'd be perfectly happy eating chicken and mac and cheese every night. (Sadly, she's not.) I also don't drink alcohol, coffee, juice, or tea. I basically drink water (gross), milk, and an occasional soda. I've had to cut back on the Cadbury eggs quite a bit, but when I was 20, I once ate 98 of them in two weeks. Good times.

Tarzan is my 3rd favorite fictional character, behind only Superman and The Doctor. Such an amazing book series. The Disney movie (actually, pretty much EVERY Tarzan movie, except the most recent one) made me want to throw things at the absolute idiots who'd written it while obviously not knowing ANYTHING about the Tarzan of the novels.
