Survey: Do You Like Being Called a Foodie?

I'll fess up: I can't stand the word. I'm not sure exactly why, but I think it has something to do with the diminutive "ie" ending. (I also prefer my vegetables to be called vegetables and not veggies, so there you go.) But what do you call someone who is passionately interested in food? A Gourmet? An Epicure? Sybarite? Chowhound? Late to dinner? Do we even need a label at all?
