6. I don't like Taco salad, but I do like Tacos. I occasionally like pickles, but only by themselves. I always have to pull the pickles out of hamburgers and sandwiches. I've never eaten lobster. The few times I've had the opportunity I have declined. If I really love it I'd just be developing a taste for something that I can't afford. If I don't love it, I'd be disappointed after everyone telling me how wonderful Lobster tastes. I'd rather live not being hooked on or disappointed by Lobster.
7. I'm over 30, and I've never voted. As a Canadian, I can't vote in the U.S., and I've always been in the U.S. during Canadian elections. Because Canadian elections are conducted so quickly, I have always missed the chance to register for an absentee ballot. Home Town is having an election this month, but I haven't yet lived here long enough to vote.
8. My favourite novel is War and Peace. Once I got past the first third, and had figured out who the important characters are, I started to really care about them. The whole point of the book is how to be happy. Everyone has a different idea of what leads to happiness, and each finds that what they thought would lead them there does not. The question that lingers over every page is whether they will figure life out before it ends. The thing that I love is that the book is so long that Tolstoy has time to fully develop everybody's thought process, and show why they try what they do, and why it works or doesn't work. Anything shorter wouldn't be able to accomplish what Tolstoy is trying to do here. It's glorious.
