Friday Five - Like and Hate
Saturday, Nov. 08, 2003, 2:39 p.m.

QUESTION: Who does eat their green beans?

WHAT I LEARNED: Handsome is as handsome does.

1. What food do you like that most people hate?

Liver and onions.

2. What food do you hate that most people love?

Pears, green beans, squash, quiche, chili con carne (unless you throw in some cornbread), and raw oysters. However, I believe I am not really alone on most of these.

3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you?

I am sure many people find Hugh Grant and Ashton Crutcher amazingly attractive but personally, I would rather gaze at Mel Gibson, George Clooney, Orlando Bloom (LOTR style), Johnnie Depp (in pirate mode), or Harrison Ford (a la Indiana Jones).

4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find attractive?

I think that Jim Carey is a nice looking man but many people are so tuned in to his comedy that they donít see him in that light. I also think that Tom Hanks isnít Greek-god handsome but somehow becomes extemely attractive on screen Ė maybe itís the movie roles he picks or maybe it is just that Iíve watched Youíve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle one too many times.

5. What popular trend baffles you?

It saddens me when I hear women referred to by degrading names, as in some popular music for instance, and it surprises me when I see women actually embracing it. Women are not female dogs, or prostitutes, or individuals of easy virtue by merit of their basic feminine nature. We may be unpleasant, or real prostitutes, or of easy virtue by merit of our choices however. Itís not the same thing and it is indeed a very slippery slope when women elect to be referred to with such a lack of innate respect for who they really are as unique and valuable individuals.
