let the games begin

this one's for you, Neko.

coming in on the heel of yesterday's hotdog eating competition in Coney Island, NY, i was thinking...

IF YOU WERE TO JOIN A FOOD EATING COMPETITION OF YOUR CHOICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

well, mine would be...PASTA!

pasta, pasta, pasta! and not just the short kind of pasta. i love them looong. *chuckles*

spaghetti, spaghettini, linguini and what-have-you. tomato-based or cream-based, as long as it's done the Italian way.

so bring it on

and let's get it oooon!


(that's not me in the picture, but that's probably how i'd look like in the competition, anyway)

Hm, my choice for a food-eating competition? Tough call...I guess I'd go for the breakfast cereal category. Hehe, I could eat breakfast cereal all day long! (Kellog's sugar corn pops, if possible)

Btw, V, I don't think we've met. I chanced upon your blog while blog hopping and just found your writing and topics to be generally entertaining. And of course, as I've mentioned before, the pictures are pretty easy on the eyes as well.

PEDESTRIAN> oh, i love cereals too! and kellog's cocoa-frosted cereals tops my list(and which i posted about a couple of days ago)!

so maybe I can join two competitions, yes?

aaaw, we never met before? just the same, it's great to know that someone out there is entertained by me. i mean, by my posts. ;)

Hm, I actually missed your breakfast cereal post. Just read it now. I also go for the cereals even when I'm eating those hotel buffet breakfasts. After the cereal though, I head straight for the bacon platter and pick out all the crispy pieces!

Hey, now there's another choice for a food competition, crispy bacon!

And non of that pseudo-Italian pasta from Don Henrico's either.

SEÑOR> so you'll join the contest, then? that would be you, neko, shionge, watson and ME!

Pasta would make me too sleepy and lethargic. Hot dogs would be fine for me. Although, I could also go for anything soft and sweet (custard, whipped cream, etc). Bigos, Polish Hunter’s Stew, made with cabbage, sauerkraut, and lots of different meats.

I would want something that could go down easily without much chewing.
