I hope you’ll have time to read my post from last night, I’ve so appreciated your comments so far. When I saw Friday’s Feast this week, I liked the questions enough to play along…I love how Susie comes up with this stuff. If you decide to feast, too, let me know and I’ll be sure to visit!
Name a funny habit you have.
The way I put on lipstick–top right side of my lip, two strokes; top left side, one stroke; then the bottom lip, left to right, then right to left. I didn’t realize this about myself until Rachel mentioned it once, and now I’m very aware… It was more fun when I had my
MAC lip brush, but that was stolen when I was robbed a while back and I never replaced it. Buzzards got my $13 lip glass, too. Geez…$33 on my lips (and I rarely use lipstick…). It was Isabel’s fault.
If you could instantly know how to play a musical instrument, which one would you pick?
Know how badly I wanna say "guitar" for this? 1) because you can take it with you, and 2) because they ooze "cool"??
The truth is, I’d love to be able to play the p i a n o. Remember that scene in "You’ve Got Mail" where Kathleen (Meg Ryan) and her shop posse are standing around the piano, and Birdie (Jean Stapleton) is playing a Christmas carol (I think)? I would LOVE to be Birdie, able to sit at the piano, play anything… everything by ear…and have a home adorned with the music and laughter of friends and family.
Which is about as far away from "real" as you can get…not ONE person in our family is gifted musically; at least it has given us many opportunities to laugh AT and WITH each other.
How long is your hair?
Just below my shoulders.
When was the last time you forgave someone, and who was it?
My sister…yesterday. But I don’t think she knows it, so I guess it’s not "complete".
What is your favorite kitchen appliance?
Well, I do love our waffle-maker, and I’ve slap worn out my mixer, but without our coffee maker, I might just be impossible to live with. It brings me to life every morning…it’s a shameful, legal addiction.
Ohhh…waffle-maker! That’s a great choice. I love mine. Nice list!
I almost said piano, too. I have so many good memories of my parents playing music for me and my sister—Christmas, show tunes, classical, popular stuff.
That’s a funny appetizer!
After hearing several people say waffle maker I think that may need to be a purchase sometime soon!
I’ve always wanted to know how to play an instrument also, and I have literally NO talent for it (and I’m fairly tone deaf, LOL).
I love my waffle maker too, especially on weekends!! Have a great weekend.
What a coincidence… I do my lips the same exact way 😉
I had to go with guitar for mine – if I knew you IRL I’d teach you some piano…;)
Great feast – sorry to hear you got robbed and lost your fav lip stuff – that’s just so unfair!
I want that coffee machine! My husbands cousin has it and I have been coveting it ever since.
Dear robin. Ooohh coffee – looks lovely and space age. I’m glad it keeps you sane!
Welcome to all the Friday Feasters…
Mike, you’re really trying to freak me out, aren’t you?
Chickie, if you just didn’t live so far away…;)
Mary (MM;) ), The best part is the stainless steel carafe…it doesn’t “burn” the coffee, just keeps it hot.
Dear LMM, I need all the help I can get ;).
LOL! Of course. Is it working?
My piano sits and sits and sits… and then finally trips me when I walk by.
So, I sit down and play it. But I think the hubby put my music in a box when we bot new furniture…. so I need to go find it.
(so, yes… I just sit and either make up music or play songs from my head)
Uh-oh auntie……why were you mad at mother dearest? I’ve been out of town so I don’t know what’s been going on.
