There is always talk about comfort food, that food we grew up on that takes us back to a time when we felt happy and secure and loved. I hope it does not make you uncomfortable for me to ask these. Of course I will start with the food. What is your absolute favorite comfort food? What song or album takes you back to those times when you hear it, that it could be called Comfort Music? What book is your Comfort Book? This one is not necessarily relating to the past: What would your perfect Comfort Room be? A space that would suit you entirely, that you could share or not share as you please?
Was that too serious? One more: Places that have great burgers but no fries. Deal breaker or not?
Now let us go wading in the Twitter Stream:

Re: the poll: Just in time they are going to allow women in combat (when they have actually been in combat all along). Coincidentally, the website Suduvu.com has a Fantasy Cage Match every year, usually kicking off in March, which is really soon. It is a most hilarious exercise and I heartily recommend it to everyone, even if you aren't familiar with the characters.
So, women in combat. For Fantasy Fans, who would kick the most butt?
