It has been a super crazy week for many reasons, so I never did get around to last week's feast. That means that this week you get a double helping! Bon Appetite!

Feast One Hundred & Thirty One

What sound, other than the normal ringing, would you like your telephone to make?
Songs, currently I have the theme to Law & Order as my default ring.

Describe your usual disposition in meteorological terms (partly cloudy, sunny, stormy, etc.).
Recently, partly cloudy w/ a chance of showers

What specific subject do you feel you know better than any other subjects?
I tend to be good with other people's love lives and I have a weirdly large vocabulary. I am also very well versed on Judiasm [especially considering I'm a shiksa].

Main Course
Imagine you were given the ability to remember everything you read for one entire day. Which books/magazines/newspapers would you choose to read?
All of the prep books from Bar/Bri, an almanac, the rules for all different types of poker games, a bartender's handbook, the Bible, the Rules of Court for NJ and NY, the Joy of Cooking

If a popular candy maker contacted you to create their next confection, what would it be like and what would you name it?
It would have to have DARK chocolate and pretzels and possibly some other things. I'm thinking squares like a Hershey bar but where each square had something different yummy in the center like raspberry coulis, caramel or fudge.

(This Feast was prepared with amazingly still fresh leftovers from October 2004.)

Feast One Hundred & Thirty Two
Where on your body do you have a scar, and what caused it?
OMG so many. I have one on my eyebrow from when I had stiches when I got my skin caught in the car window as a kid, [I was trying to hang my head out and she decided to roll up the window], I have another on my knee from stiches from getting a nail stuck in it from the garage door, I have one on my wrist from being burned making Christmas cookies, and I have a scattered mess of little scars all over my forearm from shards of glass from a car accident. I also have 3 "intentional scars", otherwise known as tattoos. :)

What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?
I survived a serious car crash with only minor injuries after going head-on into a truck and having to be cut out of the wreckage with the jaws of life. The people on the scene don't quite know how I survived. After seeing pictures of the car afterwards I'm not sure myself. It was all very dramatic at the time, but now it's just an interesting story.

Name a television personality who really gets on your nerves.
Pat Sajak [b/c he's boring] and Regis Philbin [not so much on his show, but on Millionaire]

Main Course
What was a funny word you said as a child (such as "pasketti" for "spaghetti")?
I called my aunt Peggy "Piggy", but I can't remember if that was a funny way to say it or if I was just being obnoxious.

Fill in the blank: I have always thought ______ was ______.
I have always thought anything was possible.

  • getting a wireless mouse at work
  • drinks & dancing with a cute guy on Valentine's Day
  • making up new words - the new word being "shotable" - liquor which would make a good shot, as in: I am scanning the liquor supply looking for shotables. [I cannot take the credit for the word, I was only present at its inception.]
  • finding out old friends are expecting a visit from the stork

Feast One Hundred & Thirty

Have you been sick yet this winter? If so, what did you come down with?
Yup, I was sick with a cold the week between Christmas and New Year's.

What colors dominate your closet?
black, green and purple

How would you describe your personal "comfort zone"?
Wider than most people, especially if I don't know the person.

Main Course
On which reality show would you really like to be a contestant?
I have no desire to be on TV, although I would enjoy the challenges on The Apprentice.

Which holiday would you consider to be your favorite?
Thanksgiving. It's a lovely holiday celebrated by everyone I know, regardless of faith. It's comforting and low stress.

Yes, yes, I'm late. Friday was a hellish day. I broke down TWICE during the course of the day. As it turns out it was only water in my gas tank and I just had to cycle through it, but it took hours to figure this out between all the waiting for Triple A and traveling to and from the mechanic. *sigh* At least it wasn't a big expensive thing.

On to the feast!

Feast One Hundred & Twenty Nine

What was one of the fashion fads when you were a teenager?
Stone washed jeans rolled so tight at the ankles that they cut off the circulation, worn with wigwam socks.

Name one thing you think people assume about you when they first meet you.
I tend to think other ppl think negative things about me, but I have heard that some people think I am withdrawn or snobby because I tend to be reserved until I know someone.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how hard do you work?
It depends, usually a 9 or 10 because I pride myself on my work and I like things to be done well, but recently I have had some medical issues and my work has not been up to par.

Main Course
If you were given a free 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl to sell anything you currently own, what would you advertise?
I don't have anything I want to sell, but I might try to advertise myself for a legal position!, so I guess my answer would me "my services", but I would have to reword that because it sounds tawdry.

Fill in the blank: I love to ________ when it is _________.
I love to snuggle when it is raining.

I thought my car could not look any more "ghetto". I was wrong. I have missing paint, and therefore large rust spots, missing hubcaps, and my bumper is all smashed. Then recently I was staying at a friend's house up north after a night of overindulgence. The following morning early afternoon I hear a knock on the bedroom door.

Friend: Did you have spraypaint on your car last night?

Me: Umm, NO!

Friend: Well you should come outside. The police just left.


I threw on a jacket and some shoes and went out into the bitter cold to find a horizontal, green spray painted stripe spanning the entire driver's side length of my car. It looked as though the thugs perpetrators who did it basically drove up the street spraying as they went. There were several cars on the neighborhood that fell victim, although the vehicles parked in driveways were not touched. Lucky me for parking on the street.

In the end I decided it just didn't matter. They didn't graffitti any curse words or offensive pictures and they were even nice enough to use my favorite color. It's not as if the car was pristine looking in the first place. Every time my car makes a new noise, or gains a new scar I just cross my fingers and whisper silently to the Patron Saint of New Jobs, "Don't forget about me ..... I'm still waiting."
