1. Probably fettucine alfredo.
2. I don't remember the title-something about a little demon in the city and it's about hypnosis in paris during the Belle Epoque (and I don't know what's with my random capitalization!)
3. I don't think so.

1. Lasagna or chicken fettuccini alfredo.

2. Coffee & Kung Fu by Karen Brichoux, and Montana Sky by Nora Roberts.

3. Yep, I've ridden one too!

1. I have to pick one? Not possible.

2. Outlander: Book 5 - they're pretty bad, but I enjoy them. I am also re-reading Rising Tides by John M. Barry and The Tokaido Road by Lucia St. Clair Robson.

3. I have!

Angel hair pasta with my homemade meat and tomato sauce.

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail by HST
The Lord of the Rings (to my daughter) by Tolkien
Contact by Carl Sagan
The Waves by Virgina Woolf
On Food and Cooking by McGee
The Journals of Sylvia Plath
A Collection of Classic American Short Stories
A Star Called Henry by Roddy Doyle
...I really should finish some of these before I start another, but it's like TV, I want to read what I'm in the mood to read, and I'm not always in the mood for the same thing.

When I was in kindergarten, my classmates and I all threw food at an elephant. I don't remember if the elephant ate the piece of food I threw.

Rice, which I count as pasta. With soy sauce, or with butter and hot/spicy pepper. Or plain jasmine rice.

Currently reading All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, and Battle Royale by Koushun Takami.

I never have. Have YOU?

1. Tie between my mom's ravioli and my great-aunt's gnocchi. Ooh, with my mom's rigatoni being a contender for 2nd place.

2. Nothing right now, I think. I just finished Anansi Boys. Starting to warm up to Neil Gaiman's writing, and it only took me twice through American Gods and Anansi Boys to do it, lol.

3. No. But I'd like to.

1. Stuffed shells with red sauce. I also like pumpkin ravioli.

2. I'm finally reading A Clash of Kings even though I pretty much know what happens. :x

3. No. But I've sat behind one after it was fed. Most likely, not as fun.

I'm currently reading The Most Dangerous Animal of All by Gary L. Stewart; it's all about the research he did to find his birth father and how that research turned up (in his opinion) proof that his father's the Zodiac Killer.

Very hard to choose! I had this pasta on the Cape once that was very good. It had a bunch of different kinds of roasted nuts and some spice. I also love any kind with scallops and/or tomatoes, because those are my favorite foods. And of course my mom's homemade mac and cheese is way up there.

I'm in between right now--pretty rare--often I'll pick a new one up right away! I'm thinking of starting this Poor Man's Feast one next, speaking of comfort food

No, but I've petted one, including its wart.

1. What is your favourite pasta dish?
Pasta, tomatoes, garlic...maybe a meatball on the side

2. What book(s) are you currently reading?
We Two, about Victoria & Albert as well as one about Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson (kind of comparing their very different outlooks/experiences)

3. Have you ever fed an elephant?
I have not!

1. Varies
2. None :'(
3. Yep

A Perfect Life - Danielle Steel

No I haven't

1. Capellini with lemon, garlic, olive oil, and finely chopped vegetables.

2. Connie Willis 'Remake' and 'Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore.'

3. Yes. We fed the elephant bananas at a wildlife preserve in India. I was actually kind of terrified at the time.
