Check out Feast 130 at Friday's Feast.
Appetizer: Have you been sick yet this winter, and if so, what did you come down with?
Are you kidding me? Well, I just got over a strange flu which produced high fever and severe joint aches only, no regular flu stuff. Next year, I’m getting the flu shot. I’m too old and cranky to mess with this stuff. I’m gonna elbow babies and the elderly out of the way.
Soup: What colors dominate your closet?
Black mostly, although this snippet of my closet sure doesn't look like it, but I promise, it is. I also prefer solid clothes, and that is clear in this picture. My favorite outfit to wear is a black ribbed turtleneck and jeans. Sometimes when I put them on, I think, “I could be buried in this.” Which shows that: 1. I’m always thinking about death 2. I have no intention of having an open casket (people seeing a white corpse in a black sweater) 3. I appreciate comfort. Other colors in my closet are about equal, except for green, of which I’m not a fan, unless the Presidents are wearing it, as in money. Ha.
Salad: How would you describe your personal "comfort zone?"
Routine is comforting to me. I like to be around people who are: 1. not easily offended 2. will trust that I am basically good-intentioned 3. will offer the benefit of the doubt to others whenever possible. Love covers a multitude of sins.
Main Course: On which reality show would you really like to be a contestant?
I would love to be on What Not to Wear. I consider that a reality show. I would be willing to take the punches from Stacy and Clinton, and I would LOVE to meet Nick Arrojo and Carmindy, but esp. Nick Arrojo. I have a crush on him, but not in the traditional sense. I just sort of feel like he's the Monet of hair or something. I'm in awe of Nick.
Dessert: Which holiday would you consider to be your favorite?
No favorites anymore. Although my son was born on March 8, which is National Women's Day. This would be, of course, every teenaged boy's dream, to be able to say: "I'm so studly they made my birthday National Women's Day."
