Count me among them. I've never liked it. Though I feel that the number of them has increased since I was a kid (as have my taste preferences), and thus have some inclination to try it again. Particularly after smelling some of the looseleaf my sister and friends have purchased over the past few years.

Tried that once, didn't work. I think me and a friend polished off a 26er of Baileys in about 2 hours and I didn't feel a thing. Except for my disgustingly sticky lips. That is one thing I won't likely buy again. I'll buy Amarula next time. Tastes a little better, I think, and the sweetness is more natural, less sugary.

As for cake, I also don't care for your standard cakes. I'll eat it, but only if it is a birthday thing or sommat. And it has too look tasty and not like a standard boring cake.
I love cheesecake, icecream cake, and some of your other not-quite-cake cakes, but I tend to shy away from standard cake.

Wow, this topic just keeps flailing about.

Tea: I like. I enjoy black tea, green tea*, chai, lapsang souchong**, Moroccan mint tea, and I'm not just being a stereotyped Brit here. I like coffee too. And hot chocolate.

Cake: Those are some awesome fantastically inventive cakes, and I heartily approve of people making them and any others.

Booze: I like beer and its "tougher" cousins (ales, stout), spirits, cocktails, cough medicine***, wine, and pretty much anything, including Baileys and similar cream-based alcohols. But long-time readers might remember I absolutely adore absinthe, and recommend it to anyone of a suitable age. The only things I tend not to enjoy are cider (which I'm slowly being drawn back towards) and tequilla, which tastes like it's going to make me ill and invariably does.

We can gather from this that I like things.

*I have what is the most hippy green tea I've come across so far; the bags are unbleached (so brownish) and it comes in recycled cardboard from Fairtrade sources. I'm so proud of that stuff, I almost wish I could walk around and show it off to people.
**Has anyone ever noticed lapsang souchong smells a little bit like marijuana? I'm always a bit scared that after I've brewed some, I'll get visited by unsympathetic police officers who then turn about my house in search of illegal substances. Maybe I worry too much. Maybe the tea is making me paranoid.
***I jest. But I did know someone (with a severe kidney problem, no less) who would partake of cough medicine without the prerequisite cough. Put me off the idea, for definite.

It is an unusual day when I don't have some form of tea, usually black, at least once through the day. That's really coming from being in a family that drink tea on an almost hourly basis on weekends, and they make some for me too so I don't feel left out.

It is ones of my life's ambitions to try proper, authentic absinthe! Does that make me sad? Maybe.

P.S. I am a bit obsessed with crazy obscure different types of tea. My favourites include Green Chai, Spiced Dandelion, Liquorice and Kangaroo Chai*.

*Does not actually contain Kangaroos

Theres a tea shop in Sydney I've been to once or twice (I had nowhere else to be and I knew someone who wanted to go) and they serve and sell some of the most obscure teas around. The sort that have flowers blooming in them, etc. My favourite was Blue Hawaii, which was, you guessed it, blue. I could see the appeal of sitting there every week trying to find the perfect flavour.

Also, Kangaroo Chai only tastes good when it's got Kangaroo extract in it.

My choice of tea depends on how much caffeine is in it, but I like all kinds. My favourite though is probably fruity herbal teas.

I always have to check the coffee and tea shops when I'm in an unfamiliar place. Also, don't knock cough syrup until you've tried it; THEN you can knock it!*

The worst thing about being my age is the booze, though. People my age have no taste, and it's embarrassing. I've seen these people finish vodka coolers by the litre and I have never seen or tasted anything so gross in my life (excluding carbonated coffee and kosher wine). I don't understand why they won't do something like drink sissy-boy liqueurs, which are geniunely delicious and hardly taste like alcohol.**

*Really, really terrible. Seriously. Don't do it. Big kids only.
**I can imagine myself drinking a big honkin' bottle of amaretto. I don't know but that might make someone very ill.

Big as in large? Because you're only 18.

You know very well that I mean big as in large. I mean I am losing weight, though...

I have picked out a gym to join. Once we have lost weight we could compare six-packs.

No. We're not doing that. At that I've basically stopped training whatsoever because I'm too damn lazy.

A bunch of my friends want me to start sparring with them, I think it's because I'm big but they know I can't fight so they're going to try and beat me and brag to everyone else. Thus, to level the plane, I am going to put ball bearings in my gloves.

Instead of ball bearings, use poisoned daggers!
