First of all, I am working on something with a little more substance than these quizzes and memes for a post that's due in a couple of days on Internet Cafe. So since I've been so studious and serious working on that piece, I'm allowing myself to be a little silly this week at 2nd Cup. (Sorry. I know that you came here for edification and a dose of holiness, but a fount of wisdom can only spray so long and so far in a drought. Hey, tuck away that last sentence under "wise sayings about fountains by Linda." You're welcome.)
Old Feast, since the Chef is out of the kitchen today: (Guess she couldn't stand the heat.)
What is a word that your family uses that would not be considered common?
REBO as in "Don't Rebo the dog!" A friend of mine told me how her family was playing baseball in their backyard, when their Chihuahua, "Rebo," was hit on the head with the ball and was pronounced dead on the scene before he even got a chance to walk to first base. It was tragic. And ever since then, when someone gets nearly beaned, we're always yelling, "Don't Rebo me, Doofus!" or "Did you see that guy get Rebo'd by that falling air conditioner?"
What theme of calendar do you have on your wall this year?
It's usually dogs or chickens, but this year it's nature, I think. Shows how much I even look at it. Who needs a calendar when you worry about things six weeks in advance in your sleep like I do.
Name 3 people you speak with on a daily basis.
Mainly Zoe. It's hard not talk to someone who follows you around the whole time you're home like you're Oprah about ready to give away some of your favorite things, i.e. bites of your food. Sometimes I talk to my teenagers, if I'm feeling the need to be corrected or shown how dumb I am.
If you could put a new tattoo on someone you know - who would it be, what would the tattoo be of, and where would you put it on them?
On my forehead:
What is the last beverage you drank out of a glass bottle?
Green tea when I was doing my coffee fast. Blech.
