And that's just humus grains, when there's meat(shuarma etc) it's way better! :D


Just the falafel is fine by me, perfectly delicious. Nice to have something a bit different from the usual donair type thing. I eat a ton of stuff without meat though so I might just be used to it.

BTW you do know that american fast food chains in foreign countries (most not all) have to up the quality of their food because they would fail and or break the law in those countries serving what they do here...

Super Size Me was a great flick. It does tend to bend a few rules, but I already hated fast food, so it was like an affirmation :)

I enjoyed it. There was a highschool teacher in Edmonton who wanted to teach his students not to believe everything they see without questioning it, so he went on the same diet, but instead of being limited to how much he could exercise he ramped it way up. He actually lost weight and stayed very healthy. At the end of the day though, Supersize Me does still proove it's point that with the average american exercise you'd die pretty quickly living on fast food.

I've yet to see it, but my friend worked on the opening sequence of the movie.

Probably up Kevin's hole, giving him tips about characterizing his female characters and writing love scenes. :lol:

(That reminds me...where was the interview where Brian says something about Kevin writing the sex scenes and Kevin jokes about doing a lot of research or practice and Rebecca starts cackling in the background? ;) )

Found it:

[url=http://www.farsector.com/quadrant/interview-kevinanderson-brianherbert.htm]Shaun Farrell interviews Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
Shaun's Quadrant—September 2006[/url]

Are there sections of the novel that one of you dislikes writing but the other enjoys?

BH: We were with our editor one day and I said that Kevin likes to do the sex scenes.

KJA: I like to research for it.

Very loud laughter

BH: Then Kevin said he gets more practice.

(I embroidered the bit about the laughter being from Rebecca. ;) )

Yea, the scary bit is it's from Kevin and Brian. :shock:

Curly in an interview wrote:(Man of Two Worlds)The story idea was mine and I pitched (it to him). He was so busy I spent a little over a year writing the first draft, and then he and I spent six months of intensive work where he really got into it and made extensive changes.

Gee, I wonder why. :roll:

Anyone know a witchdoctor?? You know one of the lousiana/jamacian types with one eye and a chikens foot with blood?

Maybe we could have some little BH/KJA dolls made and pin them each time for each book, then each inconsistancy, and each new book.

That would simulate the pain the OH readers go thru each new release.

Just a thought, not an analogy persay:::shrugs:::
