    Classic, the cheap brand was very uncomfortable to my skin. :(

    Favorite time of the year.
    Warm or cold weather?

    I actually use a common 1912 GEM single edge razor. I've used this particular razor since Freshman year in college.

    For thenourposws of the game, I'll choose "no-nonsense DE blade', since I have a few WEI vintage Gillette shaving kits put back in a drawer somewhere.

    Cookbooks:

    "The Gold Cook Book"

    Or

    "Fanny Farmer"?

    That has an altogether different connotation in Brit-speak.

    My mother once dropped her paperback copy of Fanny Farmer in a soup kettle, and it was the best thing she ever cooked. So I'll have to go with her.

    Crisco or lard?

    Cream of Wheat with a big hunk of butter melting away in the middle - it doesn't get any better than that on a cold grey morning.

    Rice or Tapioca pudding?

    I like a lot of variety and types of pizza, but when I have to choose only one for life going forward at Desert-Island House of Pizza, it will be

    Thin crust classic cheese



    Banana or Coconut Cream Pie?

    This 203a0b8b-2976-48d1-8e9a-0da7d4a77a64_x300.jpg or that 7408eef9-8d43-41c4-92e4-61954143859c_x300.jpg ?

    First.

    In a debate with the opposite sex:

    Do you give in to avoid further confrontation even though
    you are right but feel that it is hopeless?

    Remain firm because you know you are right regardless
    of the consequences?

    How long do you want to wait to have...

    Just kidding. After 21 years of being together, fortunately, we are aligned on the big things, and, in truth, most things - those smaller things that we don't, we agree to disagree and move on. If we have to make a decision on one - there's enough good will between us, that we know when to give in to the other and vice versa.

    I'm fine with agreeing to disagree, but I won't say I believe something I don't.

    "The House of Mirth" or "The Great Gatsby" (both stories of penniless bounders fatally striving to be accepted into "society")?
