Cooking to Hook Up

Oh bless you Lily, the quiz on Cooking to Hook Up is just hilarious!

As another "Indie Girl" - cheers Lily, though I agree that the category still feels limiting - I can honestly say I recognise myself in the Nick Hornby quote if nothing else...
It's no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn't even speak to each other if they met at a party.
-- Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Remember, I am the girl who organises her CDs alphabetically - except for compilations which are by genre - and longs to have an iPod to do some serious genre-busting allocation of categories to the Rullsenberg and Cloud music collection.

BTW eclectic does not mean non-judgemental: there just ain't no place for Celine Dion or Cher, even on an ironic level (that's a no to Titantic and a big fat NO to Cher ... inspired by Buffy's dealings with demonic Kathy's "super" repeat playing of "Believe" from Living Conditions Season 4 ep.2).

...and I'm sorry, even the excellent and hilarious non-presence of Cher in The X-files episode The Post-Modern Prometheus cannot redeem the uplifted grande dame of camp.
