Brian Jane-ology

I felt a blog coming on all day long, but was really unable to settle on a single topic. Then I read this “survey” my sister posted (almost four years ago) on Facebook. I felt like divulging a little information, so it’s one of those posts.  Ignore this one if it’s not your bag of tea.


1. What is your salad dressing of choice? Blue Cheese

2. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? Hmmm… So many to choose from. Chima, currently?

3. What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of? Sandwiches!

4. What are your pizza toppings of choice? Black olive and Mushroom

5.What do you like to put on your toast? Nutella. Butter & black cap jam. I like toast. 🙂
