A Meme and Beck's The Information

I stole this meme from Pea Soup because it seemed like fun -- her answers were fun anyway; mine will probably be more boring:

Target or Kmart? Target -- I just don't find much I like in Kmart.
Beef burger or chicken burger? Beef
Faux or Fur? Neither.
Out of a can or out of a bottle? Almost always a glass if we are talking about something to drink.
Hotel or tent? I used to like a tent. Now that I'm older, I find myself preferring a hotel -- the more amenities, the better.
Coles or BiLo? Don't know Coles. There's a BiLo in South Carolina but I don't know if it's the same thing or not.
Pasta or Pizza? Pasta.
Thongs or sandals? Sandals.
Backyard pool or beach? If there's water and I can swim in it, it makes me happy -- so either.
Souvenirs or photos? Photos.
BBQ or foodcourt? Definitely barbecue.
Chocolate or Vanilla? If it's ice cream, I like chocolate. If it's a smell, I love vanilla.
Hair product or no hair product? No hair product -- it would be too much work.
Cats or dogs? It used to be cats but now I have too many cats, so I find I'm preferring dogs lately.
Organised tour or do it yourself? My own tour.
Home cooked or home delivered? I agree with Suse -- this is a trick question. What else am I going to choose if you offer to bring it to me already cooked?
Coffee or tea? I actually like tea better but I drink more coffee.
The strength of an ox or the strength of a mule? Do you mean which one do I have? Neither.
Love or lust? Surely I'm not expected to choose one over the other.
Thought or action? Thought.

Beck's The Information: This is old news but I'm outraged about it anyway. I recently bought Beck's latest cd because, well, I love Beck. Later I found out that this album will not be included on the charts in the U.K. because the Official Chart Company claims that its packaging (you get videos with the download and stickers to make your own cover with the cd version) gives it an unfair advantage. As far as I'm concerned, after listening to the album, the only advantage that I can see it might have is that it might be actually A LOT better than anything else released at the same time.

Hello! I came to your blog through a link from Sari's blog (The Geek Inside).

I really enjoyed what I've read so far.

I hope you don't mind if I add you to my list of blogs I enjoy and if I copy the meme you posted.

Stop by my blog and chat sometime...

Ooh, fun to see someone else's answers!

(Coles and BiLo are supermarkets)
