Question and Answer

yhlee and pegkerr and several other people, I forget who, have been answering the "five fictional characters you had a crush on as a kid" question. I was reading along with interest and having a hard time coming up with any besides Egon from "Ghostbusters," because my interest in geeks apparently started somewhere around or before my fifth birthday. "Ghostbusters" came out in 1984, the year I turned six, and there was already no question in my mind which Ghostbuster was the appropriate one.

But then it hit me: the Westmark trilogy. Like, half the male cast of the Westmark trilogy. Florian, Justin, Stock, Theo. Keller. I totally sympathized with Sparrow on the point of Keller.

Is this a disturbing answer? I think it might be.

So anyway, I was answering a question hernewshoes had asked about chocolate, and it got me wondering: what food products have you bought that disappointed you? They don't have to be disgusting things, just things that weren't nearly as good as they sounded. Mine (in the comments to the last entry) was Haute Fudge's Grand Marnier fudge. (The kind of fudge you heat and pour over ice cream, not the kind you slice and eat.) It's fine, but...who wants Grand Marnier fudge to be fine? So it lurks in the corner of the fridge, getting finished slowly, because...meh. And we can do better than "meh" for desserts around here.

How about you? What did you think was going to be wonderful that wasn't?
