meat tornado

After previously being a vegetarian for 3 years (in addition to several attempts on & off over the years) and the fact that I’m an Atheist,
it’s funny that one of my favourite sayings is
If God didn’t mean for us to eat animals they wouldn’t be made of meat!
So a couple of weeks ago, for date night (& treat meal) with the hubby, we went to Hurricanes Bar & Grill in Darling Harbour
to indulge our carnivorous side.
It was the great South African meatfest of 2012…

This is the eye of the meat tornado.
full rack of pork ribs with chips
It was a meatfest that I attempted and failed…
…half of it went on the hubby’s plate.

day 8 question

What characteristic do you most dislike?

Let’s assume that this question is asking about a personality trait that I dislike. That would have to be unfriendliness.

There are many personality traits I find unpleasant; like stinginess (eg ungiving, scanty or meager), extreme arrogance and impoliteness but above all I find it difficult to be nice to people who are surly.

It’s commonly known that you make your first impression to people within the first 3 seconds, so if you meet or interact with someone who doesn’t smile, has a permanent scowl on their face and generally just looks like their about to drag you into their shit bucket with them, I just shut down.

I don’t think that everyone has to be a composure of robotic smiley-ness but greeting someone with politeness is a courtesy that we seem to be losing in this day and age.
