Friday’s Feast – 0711.30

Appetizer
What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?
When I was a very little girl, I was completely in loved with the nausea-inducing fun that is the Tilt-a-Whirl. Later, I fell in love with the vintage wooden roller coaster at the Santa Cruz boardwalk. I still love them both, in a nostalgic sort of way.

Soup
How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?
It depends. I’m only a situational extrovert, so I tend to avoid huge gatherings as much as possible. When I do have to go, I tend to observe for a while, and then be extremely selective about who I talk to. When I’m very nervous, I clam up. On the other hand, if I’m watching someone mistreat someone else, I’ll generally speak up.

Salad
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?
With the right people, I enjoy it immensely – a strong 9 or weak 10 – with the wrong crowd, the sorts of people who take such conversations personally, about a 2.

Main Course
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?
No. And no. The one time I did, I had a very bad reaction.

Dessert
Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?
I have DVD’s or Bravo or whatever movie seems vaguely interesting playing all the time while I write, but I’m not really watching anything as much as using it for background noise. Television I pay attention to is maybe – MAYBE – an hour a night. But at least half the time I let stuff pile up on the DVR or TiVo and watch a mini marathon when I really need to escape.

  1. I’m sorry you had a bad reaction to the flu shot. I had it for the first time ever this year and was fine. But I’ve always been scared of it before.

    Come check out my feast if you get a chance! :)

  2. I’m wondering what kind of reaction you got from the shot… but anyways… stay away from it as far as possible! :D

    Happy Friday!

  3. I love old wooden rollercoasters! There’s just something so satisfying about them, like feeling “THIS is what REAL fun is- not those fancy high-tech things!”

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. i’m sorry with ur bad reaction w/ flu shot. the same thing w/ my sister. well, i didn’t have mine either and not planning, too! great feast u have! have a good friday!

  5. I have heard of bad reactions to flu shots, which is why I wont have one – if it’s possible to have a bad reaction, I generally do!!! Have a good weekend :-)

  6. I love having DVR, I record movies I will miss when the kids are watching cartoons so I can watch them when I have time.

  7. Sorry to hear of your reaction to the flu shot. Is probably one of the reasons I don’t get it. Great feast! Thank you for stopping by to dine with me! *smiles*

  8. A few people have said they’ve had bad reactions to the flu jab, I wonder if it’s a universal thing or if some jabs are stronger than others?

  9. You can have all the swirly twirly rides… those circle things.. whew. We can share the roller coasters. Meet you in Santa Cruz!
