I am back!

After a self-enforced period of silence, I am back with a new (read: uplifting) view of the world, life and all things human.

I want to celebrate my new found pulse by challenging myself to try things that are diametrically opposed to my old personality/characteristics (sexuality not included of course).
I shall begin with the easiest and work towards the more fundamental...

I have no spontaneity when it comes to food/drink. I always order the same pizza toppings, the same coffee and the same flavor of cheesecake. Menus are useless items as far as I'm concerned. So I announce my first mission (drumroll......):

"Operation Taste-Buck's: To taste each and every kind of coffee they offer at the local coffee house"

Tall Americano

Description: "Americano" is probably the simplest coffee you can make. You take 2 shots of espresso fresh off the steamer and add some hot water to the brim and voila, you have an Americano. The name probably derives from Americans who found Italian espresso too bitter and brief.

Experience: Well the taste is really that of espresso - just toned down. It's lack of sophistication might put some people off but you are guaranteed to get your buzz every time. Dependable, quick and unassuming - it's the beer of coffee.

Grade: 7/10


Next attempt: the dairy brothers!

Oh my gosh,totally!
That's a risk too big for me to take, personally!
I mean you know how much a grand caramel latte is at the local Starbucks?
15 Saudi Riyals! (yes, that would just about be a whopping $4)
I'd rather just drink that and enjoy it.
But kudos to you for attempting..
And remember,Ramzi, you've gone where no other food-chicken has ever gone before..make us proud!

Wow. I bow down before your food bravery. I try my hardest to experience loads of foods I just really don't like that many... I only JUST tried cabbage for the first time last sunday and I was throroughly disappointed. Though I have tried quail, crocodile, kangaroo, ostrich, snails and frogs legs.

.... woob. :P
