I have had some superb white bread, but wheat for health reasons.

As for past questions: I'll be eating hamburgers and cake, wearing my jeans (sized for an eternal 10 year old) in my floating castle, using my sorcerous powers to hear your positive thoughts about how I'm frying you with a couple of bouncing betty fireballs.

I have sworn off all wheat and wheat by-products.

Meat. 

I avoid bread. Just don't want too have too many carbs.

So at least two of you are going against the grain.

Considering it's not an X but the Greek letter Chi (which happens to look like an X), the term "Xmas" has bugged me since I found that out, and I didn't much like it before then anyway. I suppose I'd go with "Merry Christmas" for that reason, since despite not being remotely religious and knowing that season's not-remotely-Christian origins I do still refer to the 25th December as "Christmas"...

Well since as far as I'm aware humbugs are always mint and I don't really like that, I'll go with pear drops :).

QotD

Does Maria Helena Teresa Fafila Servanda Jimena Mansuara Paterna Domenga Gelvira Placia Sendina Belita Eufemia Columba Gontina Aldonza Mafalda Cristina Tegrida de Falcon have a name that long just so she can't use her own name on twitter?

I'd say her long name is the reason she goes by La Capitan for twitter purposes.

New day, new question!

Two-handed weapon OR two one-handed weapons OR sword & board OR one-handed weapon and one free hand?

Depends on the setting, but going by previous experiences I tend to favour a dual-wielding approach, if possible...

Well yeah, if there's an option to hide at the back and shoot stuff I'm fairly likely to take that one. Like I said, it depends on the setting (you're highly unlikely to see me taking a melée approach in an ARPG, for example) ;).

Main Course or dessert?

Main course.   Much more variety and some dishes in a main course can be like a dessert.

Dessert, first! What's the point if I can't enjoy myself. laugh

(Of course, you're talking to a person who considers a good salad to be dessert... wink)

Damnit! How am I meant to mis-answer this when you don't give me an either/or option.

I guess murder/detective/crime/whatever-they-are-calling-it-this-week, particularly stories where you can put it together yourself as the protagonist goes along solving it.

I would probably call that mystery.

I'm primarily a SFF reader myself.

Games with apps that are required as part of their gameplay, brilliant way to keep the game from being the same every time or pointless add on that makes the game exclusive for people with e.g. iPhones?

My favorite books are old (1950-1970ish) scifi. I own about 300 books that are older than I am.
I am a day person against my will due to children and work. I loved being a night owl.
I'm fine with companion apps if they're not required. Some of my gaming companions are too young to have the necessary electronics.
