I enjoy having a virtual pet to take care of, I enjoy feeding it and I hate to admit it but I enjoy spending real currency to buy it things too (in spite of there being a virtual cur...

Re: Pizza Toppings

Talk of pizza and it has to be one (or a combination) of the following: pepperoni, onions, bacon, black olives, pineapple, mushrooms, sausage and of course extra cheese. What I absolutely detest on a pizza (and everywhere else for that matter) are green peppers and spinach.

Re: Worst/Overrated books.

Two names come to mind when talking about the worst/most overrated books ever: 1. Miles To Go (by Miley Cyrus and Hilary Liftin): If you can't write good material on your own, you shouldn't try to go and publish a book. Like one critic very aptly put it: 'Basically, it felt like a staged book, a cry...
