Friday's Feast (on Thursday...)

...but only half an hour before Friday as it's almost midnight! We'll start with last week's because that's the one that I saw first and I answered all the questions and then I went back to the Friday's Feast site and it was a different one. So there, you are very lucky, you get double the fun and I get to answer double the questions and stay up way later than I intended...I'm doing this on Thursday and then going to publish it on Friday, but at the rate I'm going it could be midnight before I'm finished and then it will be Friday, and it IS Friday somewhere in the world, so I'll just shut up now and start the feast! Bon Appetit!

Friday's Feast 151 (last week's)


What is your favorite fruit? Raspberries...always has been. Probably because we had a raspberry bush on our yard and I was the one who had to pick them. Made me appreciate their goodness after all the prickles and thorns I had to reach through to get at them, the scorching sun I had to pick in because I was too lazy to get up when my mom told me to so that I need not pick in the heat : ) You appreciate things that you've had to work for.


Who is someone you consider as a great role model? Kathy (or Hottie), who is technically my aunt, but feels like my sister. She is a person of strength and integrity, spirit and joy. Even when she is going through really hard times she still has enough in her to give to others and make them feel loved. She pushes through with a tenacity that I aspire to have. She says it like it is and doesn't take crap from anyone. She will offer her helping hand in a heart beat, probably sometimes at great inconvenience to herself. She is beautiful.

(And we don't look at ALL related...look right in the middle at the white space between our pictures for 30 seconds, you know, like those optical illusions and pretty soon you can't tell us apart! Whoa, freaky! Hee, hee. My dad even confused us during his state of incoherency at the beginning of his hospital stay.)

If you were to spend one night anywhere within an hour of your home, where would you choose? Hmmm...a field? Does that count? There isn't much an hour from my home. I think the beach is close to an that's where I guess I'd go.

Main Course
Name something you do too often. Talk, lol.

Fill in the blank: I really like spending time with Chris and Tara because they make me smile and are so generous and fun and...I don't know...I just love them : )

And finally, today's feast...

Friday's Feast 152

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how much do enjoy watching sports on television? 0...I know that's not one of the options, but definitely 0.

If you could completely memorize any one work of fiction, which one would you pick? I think I've read too many books to answer that, and I almost do memorize them because I can't ever, EVER read a book twice. I remember details so vividly that it doesn't hold any interest for me when I read it I don't.

What is your favorite breakfast food? Hmm...a few years ago I would have said "None!" Then I got pregnant and had to eat breakfast, so I forced myself to and now I have to have breakfast. I love fresh berries and yogurt separately or together in a smoothie, I also love eggs and hashbrowns (crispy, of course) with sausage and toast.

Main Course
Name something fun you can do for less than $10.00. A couple rounds of bowling. Always a good time! I suck...BADLY, but I have fun being horrible at it. It makes me feel good to let others feel good about themselves...very selfless feeling : ) Gives everyone else a good laugh, too. And then on the odd occasion that I get a strike (or sometimes two), everyone is SOOOO pumped for me that I feel like freakin' celebrity ; )

How long does it usually take you to fall asleep? Anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours. I usually lay awake and process my day...and quite possibly the following day. If I've had a good walk before bed and actually taken the time to think about stuff I fall asleep better. If not, I'm screwed.

Hootin'Anni said...

Hi....nice to meet you here at our dining room on Fridays!!

I love raspberries too....the 'black' ones especially.

Bowling? Great answer. I woulda never thought of that. I like the idea of walking before retiring for the day. Cool.

Gill said...

Loved what you wrote about bowling. I enjoyed your feast and the quick look I had at your blog, I'll be back!

Janie Hickok Siess, Esq. said...

Bowling! Wow. I haven't done that in a zillion years. In fact, we no longer have a bowling alley in town. They tore it down. So I don't know where Larry and the Lounge Lizards play now. (The joke on a SF radio station used to be that folks should come to Lodi to see Larry and the Lounge Lizards playing at the "famed Tokay Bowl". Seriously.)

Stop by . . . my feast is served up pipin' hot!

Mitchypoo said...

Your main course is great! I love bowling too, but my back hates it now. :( Great feast!

Kathy said...

WOW, you made me cry, littl' Sis. Thank you for the accolades. I love you too!

The Gal Herself said...

Welcome to the Friday Feast! You're a natural! These were fun to read. And it's funny, before today I hadn't thought of bowling in ages, and yours is the second post to mention it. I really must give it a try again.

Alison said...

Dedee said...

I finally joined the Friday Feast crew. Very fun! Loved your answers.

Nadine said...

I usually don't eat breakfast unless I'm on a trip and I'm with my hubby...he eats it. I have a hard time falling asleep too at times - I can so relate.

Kim said...

Great feasts! Sorry, I'm running a bit behind visiting everyone this past weekend.

Come on over and feast with me.

Rachel said...
