Friday’s Feast: 0709.21

What is your favorite type of art?
I like sculpture, and I like fiber arts, but my favorite school of painting is the Impressionists. Degas dancers, Seurat’s pointillism, and almost anything by Mary Cassatt appeal to me.

When was the last time you got a free lunch (or breakfast or dinner)? Who paid for it?

Our smoothies from Jamba Juice were free last night, because their register went down in the middle of the transaction, and the manager didn’t want to make us wait. Does that count?

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how emotional are you?
On average, maybe a strong six. Kleenex commercials and national disasters don’t make me cry, or anything, but I do empathize with the families of soldiers who don’t come home. Of course, one week a month all bets are off and I soar to about a fifteen.

Main Course
Approximately how long do you spend each day responding to email?
(I corrected this question because I hate that people pluralize email by adding an unnecesary ‘s’.)
I’ve never stopped to add up the time – if blog comments count, at least an hour or two, but I read and write quickly, and type 90 wpm, so possibly less than that.

To what temperature do you usually set your home’s thermostat?
We have a ton of computers, so we keep the house fairly cool – around 70.
