Q. What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
A. Way back on my first international travel experience, at an academic conference on Lipari Island (just off of Sicily), I had honest-to-goodness Italian pizza every night for two weeks. If you've never had real European-Italian pizza ... it's thin crust, it's not greasy in the slightest, and it's yummy. It's great stuff. Oh, that I could find that here in the states instead of the monstrosities that we call pizza.

A. Nope ... at least, not that I know.
Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
