Friday's Feast

From the weekly meme.

Appetizer
What is your favorite beverage?

Water.
Or grande Americano sugarfree hazelnut no room.
And if calories are no problem: Dr. Pepper.

Soup
Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or work.

Remote control for the TV feed I get on my Gateway all-in-one PC.
A souvenir stone from the beach at Monterosso al Mare in the Cinque Terre, Italy.
My business card.

Salad
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?

This is a very diverse salad. Could merit a dinner sized portion.

I'm very open. Just read this blog. Is open the same as honest? Not entirely.

So, if I have to rate this 1-10, in all things that would not be hurtful to others, 10. There are things better to not reveal - but that makes one considerate rather than dishonest. If asked point blank about something that would be difficult or embarrassing I would likely choose NOT to answer rather than to lie. I despise lying and lose all respect for anyone who does, including myself.

I also have secrets.


Main Course
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?

Oh I dislike these hypothetical things. I'm not hungry for this entree.


Dessert
What stresses you out? What calms you down?

Moving is the highest stress I have encountered because it continues on for so long and there are so many loose ends and chores and tasks and details and changes of address and appointments and deposits and renovations and contractors and and and and and....

Hearing "you're booked" or "your confirmed" or "that's paid" or "that's taken care of" or "that's included" or "I'm sorry, it was my fault, how can I make it up to you?"

  1. Interesting feast. I've often declined to answer something, rather than tell an outright lie. I'm not too keen on the Main Course this week, either. Happy Friday!

  2. What some nice things to hear in your dessert. I can see where that would definitely be calming.

    I'm with you on the lying thing. I promised myself I would never lie to my kids.. and I kept that promise. They knew if they asked me something I would tell them the truth. However... I can tell the truth creatively. Once their father ate dolphin (the fish, not the mammal) and came home and told them he'd eaten Flipper (obviously he had no problems with lying). They came to me... "Mama, did Daddy really eat Flipper?" So.. my response. "Your father did eat the fish dolphin." It took them a minute or two, but it wasn't long before they said.. wait a minute.. is there more than one dolphin, cause Flipper is a mammal.... smart kids :-)
