Friday’s Feast – 0710.19

If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?
Something small and tenacious, in the terrier family. Possibly a Staffie, as they’re fierce guardians, but all bluff and no bite.

What does the color purple make you think of?
Deeply colored autumn leaves, eggplant, my favorite turtleneck, suede sneakers that finally fell apart, crisp sweet grapes, and the midnight sky.

Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?
Ready for what? I work from home, so half the time getting ready means opening my eyes and grabbing the laptop from the nightstand (approx. 15 seconds), when I go out, half an hour if I don’t need to shower first, double that if I do.

Main Course
How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?
I have a lot of cousins from both sides of my mother’s family, and while I’ve met many of them, there are apparently many, many more that I’ve never even heard of. I’m particularly close to my cousin Cathy, in New Jersey, who is really more like my older sister, even though our mothers are NOT sisters, and my cousin Stacie, whom I’ve gotten to know better since moving here (she lives a couple of hours away, in Louisiana.)

Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for. (Example: SFO = Sweet Funny Otter)
MAB: Mischievous Alliterative Broad.

Coming Attractions

I never did post my Thursday 13, and since it’s now Friday, it seems rather silly to post it now. Instead, I offer some coming attractions for the next few T13’s – W, X, Y, and Z:

In the W-list, you’ll get to hear me ramble about water, writing and weeds.

The X-list includes xylomancy, xylophones, and Xanth.

When we get to Y, that list will talk about Peter Yarrow, and the concept of “Yes And.”

And Z features zoetropes, zinnias, and zippers, among other things.

So, you see, I really have planned them out, I just wasn’t feeling writey today, and yesterday I kind of forgot it was Wednesday, and didn’t post early.
