Well for foods, I would guess anythign Italian, Most Polish dishes, then good ol' american Beef. I don't care for the other white meat, Goat.

I am a dog type person. I am curious, like to sleep, I make a lot of noise that doesn't mean anything. :)

It is ALWAYS 1/2 full. Life is much easier to digest when you try to find good in most things.

You gotta be kidding. The other list is way shorter. I don't like okra, balut/baluk/however you spell that damn duck egg, nunc mam, chorizo, menudo, lutefisk, raw fish.

Applehead siamese cat. What do you mean why? Because I'm worth it. Smart. Able to observe the obvious fact that they're the perfect owner.

The glass is full. Approximately 50% fluid, 50% a mixture of atmospheric gasses. It is never wise to ignore the air.

Oh yea, some of the Polish dishes are ultra nasty, Ducks blood soup comes to mind. Don;t foget about head cheese either, you will only be fooled once by that name.

The good stuff. I can't spell in Polish so here is what they are, Meat balls in rich mushroom gravey, pigs in a blanker, I had some dill pickle soup once, outstanding!.

They are most excellent wonderful magnificent beautiful smart clever adorable handsome cats. Really. Way smart, emotionally stable, companionable but not clingy, large solid body, large head with a large brain in it, robust immune system.

My cat's breeder will explain all about it at Traditional Siamese and Piqaboo and Altoid can both attest to the wonderfulness of my boy.

My favorite foods are Chicken Katsu, Ume Maki (actually ume in any form), uncooked tofu (with shoyu - yummy salt!), falafel, gyoza, the unknown substance made with noodles at the bottom of the Grace's Inn plate lunches.

The pet - a pet rock - solid, stable, won't die, can be used to defend the owner, break into your home/car when keys are forgotten, and if good enough, skip along the water.

the glass - depends on my mood. generally half full; when tired, frustrated, hungry, or other negative mood, half empty until I come to my senses or sleep, eat, complain to my friends to get the anger out.

"most" siamese? Are you referring to the neurotic slinky ones with the stick legs and deformed heads?

The appleheads are as individual as other people. Ming speaks very little with his voice but communicates in eloquent "tail". Melle's Mickey is the most in-your-face lovecat I've ever met, and very vocal, sometimes speaks "tail". Her Nathan is Mike the Red's buddy, speaks with both voice and tail, uses lots of full body language communication with the baby. Mickey loves to car ride. Ming will kill for Cheez-it crackers, and insists on checking used plates for yummy scraps. Mickey steals off of everyone's plate and isn't even sly about it. Nathan has no use for nasty plate food, insists on cat-crackers and tuna.

It's like asking "what are people like", I have to answer, "um, which one?"

1. Italian, Indian, Mexican......no, wait! Afghan, Thai,, Mexican.......nope, that's not it, either.............Japanese, Chinese, Afghan.................rachafracha! American, Indian, Italian....... oh, wait, what about French and German?

Sorry, you're gonna have to let me list more.

2. A macaw. Highly intelligent(2nd largest brain weight to body weight ratio - 2nd only to humans), grrrrrreat personality, unusual, incredibly long-lived, easy to take care of, very strongly bonded to me. Flamboyantly beautiful, incredibly strong.

3. Half full of water, half full of air. Like Selma said, don't discount the air.

1. Italian gelato, Mexican tacos, German beer.

2. I would tend toward a tiger, simply because they are so damned beautiful. It might be a little smarter to go with a cheetah, because they are much more easily domesticated, though.

3. Neither. My cup runneth over.

1. Indian (mmmm curry, panir...), Thai (like the spicey stuff), Mediterranean (hold the anchovies)

2. Horse. Difficult to explain. Clever, independent, kind

3. :D Was it full to begin with or empty? Is it tending to become less full or filling up? :D The glass may be half full but can never be completely full nor completely empty...always room for hope, never perfect.

1. Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti, Lasagna, Cheese Enchiladas, home-made tamales, green bean casserole (is that ethnic??), Pizza, and I adore a good serving of chicken (not a fan of fish) and chips, pub style.

2. Any kind of indoor house cat. . .spoiled, loved, easy life.

3. The glass is always full to me. . .
