help me fill in some sample data for a project I'm working on please
bird poops on plum branch
buster
I'm working on a silly idea and I need you to give me information about two of your favorite drinks.  Can you leave a comment with the following information?  I prefer data on alcoholic drinks, but don't require it.  Also, the more common the drink is (Gin and tonic is slightly better than wine and coke), the more useful the data will be.  Since the project deals with the overlap of information between you and other people.

Your name:

Drink number 1
Drink name:
How much you like it (1-100):
The first word that springs to mind when you think of this drink:
A random memory or association you have with this drink (doesn't have to be related to the drink at all):

Drink number 2
Drink name:
How much you like it (1-100):
The first word that springs to mind when you think of this drink:
A random memory or association you have with this drink (doesn't have to be related to the drink at all):

This is all for science, so thank you for participating!  I'll show you what I'm working on once I have more data to play around with.
