The Omnivore's Hundred

A friend turned me on to The Omnivore's Hundred which is a blog post about the 100 foods that every omnivore should try. The instructions were as follows:

Here's a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there. Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food - but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don't worry if you haven't, mind you; neither have I, though I'll be sure to work on it. Don't worry if you don't recognize everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here's what I want you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you've eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

I also numbered the entries I hadn't tried yet. Those are the numbers to the right in parenthesis on some items. One item I couldn't find on the first page of Google results and the entry on Wikipedia seemed to indicate it was NOT something edible. I also added my own addition to the end which I think should have made the list.

Tagging and the Tag Cloud


I've went through and tagged every previous entry with various keywords. I noticed one thing very quickly, I have a lot of meta posts (just like this one) about the blog itself. It was also interesting to see that I posted more personal (feelings, not data) stuff than I'd ever planned on doing. I thought about going back and deleting it, but with the Wayback Machine archiving most if not all Internet content for everyone to view... why bother. I'll leave them here. I'm a human being, just like most folks reading this blog, so yes, I have feelings and have been in love and have folks that taught me things growing up. :)

One of the tags I used was "high horse" these are the entries where I pontificate on one subject or another. I'll be upfront and state that my opinions may come across stronger (or weaker) than they were and they might be totally different now... so read what you will into them.
