Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #53

*1. What drinking water do you prefer — tap, bottle, purifier, etc.?*
I like my water chilled and filtered, but I don’t drink straight water very often; I usually drink it in cola form. When I was working though, and especially when it was a warm day, I’d have something between four and eight cups of mineral water from the canteen cooler every shift.
*2. What are your favourite flavor of chips?*
By ‘chips’ I presume one means crisps. Do I have a favourite flavour? I’m not sure. I guess pickled onion Meanies would be a favourite of mine. (Although technically, Meanies are corn snacks, not crisps.) Or just plain pickle. (I’ve had pickle flavour Lays and they were similar enough, like the old spring onion Taytos.)
I’m quite partial to smoky bacon (or paprika, which for all intents and purposes is the same thing). Anything spicy also floats my boat, chili favour crisps and such, especially pan-fried. But cheese and onion (which seems to be just a British Isles thing) gets boring after a while. And the synthetic crap that some crisp makers call ‘chicken flavour’ is disgusting.
*3. Of all the things you can cook, what dish do you like the most?*
I’m not exactly a whiz in the kitchen, but I can cook myself a mean pasta meal. And I make fantastic mini-pizzas, though they’re not for the weak of stomach.
*4. How do you have your eggs?*
I don’t. I used to eat scrambled eggs when I was a young ‘un but I can’t stand them now.
*5. Who was the last person who cooked you a meal? How did it turn out?*
I normally just cook for myself, when I’m hungry. (Speaking of which, I’m kind of hungry now so I’m gonna rustle up some noodles when I’m done with this.) I don’t get too adventurous with my meals so they usually turn out just fine. But my mum made fajitas recently for the house, which were excellent. I love Mexican food. The only problem was that they were so good I wanted more, but there was nothing left to eat.
