Friday’s Feast – 0801.18

Appetizer
What is your favorite beverage?
I don’t really have favorites, but I always come back to cranberry juice mixed with lime Perrier, chai lattes made with soy milk, and classic cosmopolitans, as well as black tea and unflavored coffee with milk and sugar.

Soup
Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or work.
A rubber duckie
A metal sculpture of a woman playing a cello
A locked box of foreign coins from WWII that belonged to my grandfather

Salad
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?
I’m more honest with others than with myself. Average? About a seven. I understand the need for diplomacy to outweigh total candor at times.

Main Course
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?
Los Banos, CA desperately needs a new name, but I can’t think of anything fitting. Maybe something optimistic like Golden Hills.

Dessert
What stresses you out? What calms you down?
Deadlines that are impossible to meet, when my dogs are sick, and stupid people stress me out.
Good books, good sex, bubble baths, and spa treatments all calm me. (Those are not listed in order of preference.)

  1. Reading about Los Banos reminded me of all those cities in Argentina that have funny names. Believe me, there are a few with names WAY worse than “Los Banos” :-)

    I liked your dessert, very good job.

    My post is here. Happy FF!

  2. Ha! I’ve lived in California all of my life and until I read your feast, I’d never really thought about what Los Banos means!!! What can I say, I took three years of French! That’s funny…
    I really like your site – the giraffe pattern is really cool.
    ~~~Blessings~~~
