Friday’s Feast for 23 March 2007

Rob over at UnSpace has been doing Friday’s Feast for as long as I’ve been reading his blog and this particular set of questions appealed to me for some reason. I generally shy away from this sort of thing but I’m going to make an exception for Friday’s Feast this week. Whether I participate in the future will depend entirely upon my whim.

Appetizer
Who is your favorite news anchor/reporter? Why?
I liked Peter Jennings for a lot of reasons, most of them silly. My wife had a crush on him. He was Canadian and I enjoyed picking up on the little accent cues. He had a combination of earthiness and earnestness that really endeared him to me.

Soup
Name 3 foods that are currently in your freezer.
I’m pretty sure there’s salmon in there, but I won’t be eating it. There are also steaks and boneless chicken breasts, which I will happily consume when the time comes.

Salad
If you were to have the opportunity to name a new town or city, what would you call it?
There are a lot of factors I would take into account when naming a city: Natural landmarks (Welcome to Big Phallic Rock, Population 11,215), Cultural Heritage (Perkele Hills, Est. 2007), Vanity (Welcome to Salanton, The Narcissism City), and of course, Star Wars (Mos Eisley, A Hive of Scum and Villainy Since 1977).

Main Course
What will most likely be the next book you read?
Fool Moon by Jim Butcher.

Dessert
What’s the first thing you notice about the opposite gender?
The first thing I notice? That they’re the opposite gender. Generally it’s the presence of breasts that clues me in to this distinction. Am I really so shallow? In that respect, I certainly am.
