Haha. No, they are just a little hippy-leaning. Actually, my Mom is. Without her, I fear my Dad might be a right wing loon.

She strongly believed in proper nutrition, but also we had no bed time, never got grounded or punished, and she told us that we should choose our own way when it came to religion (although I am sure she would love that either of us cared about Catholicism).

But I will admit, I used to go to my friends' houses after school sometimes just so I could have a Coke. And I really, really do consume large quantities of Diet Coke as an adult.

I have never been able to bring myself to eat Spam. First I need to conquer my cornbeef hash phobia - then I'll try spam. It's like meat meets jelly and that's pretty freaky, Bowie.

I've never thought of Spam and Twinkies as "country" foods.

Spam is fairly popular in many areas of the Asia-Pacific region, I think though mostly in things like stir-fry/fried rice/fried noodles and "sushi", where its texture and appearance aren't so...prominent. I've seen spam musubi (spam in a rice-nori roll) served in Hawai'i before.

My current parenting philosophy in a nutshell - nice to see that it works just fine.

We do, however, slack a bit when it comes to nutrition but we would never, in a million years, eat Spam.

Artificial sweeteners and other chemicals in soda are scarier than Spam, although the latter does have sodium nitrite.

Astroturf.



And I have eaten many hot dogs - but never one from a can that was swimming in some funky gelatinous material.
