Official Survey Findings

Right now I work at an academic and non-profit survey research center. So here is a survey that I took, from Food Snobbery is My Hobbery, a great vegan blog. I like surveys. Except for when I have to work on them. Now you know weird things about me. I guess I am not following respondent privacy protocol. And I’m publishing my results…do I have to apply to the Human Subjects Committee? If you don’t work in survey research, all of those references were wasted on you.You can take the survey and post it on your blog!

Every time

5. Any food allergies? I think I might be allergic to wheat beer. Sad face

A vitamin and some water. Lame, but I’ll eat later.

21. If Martha Stewart, Paula Deen, and Rachel Ray got into a fight, who would win and how?
Martha Stewart. But not because I’d want her to. She’d win with some freaky jail moves she learned in prison and a garden spade. I’d rather they all beat each other into oblivion. I hate that stupid “scrap/garbage bowl” that Rachel Ray is trying to sell for $20. Gimme a break. Put your veggie peelings in a bowl you have and then the compost!

My husband and then the next president, whomever it may be (OOOOOOOOOO-BAMA! )
