Feast One Hundred & Sixty Nine

What was your first “real” job?

Ha-hee-hee!  I worked at a KFC, on the serving line. It was pretty dull (very small town), so in about 6 months I switched to a job at at a dairy bar….you know, one of those roadside places that serves everything you can think of in addition to all the treats you can make with ice cream…so I can work one of those ice cream things at some restaurants pretty well!

Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?

Downtown Disney!  Not that other places wouldn’t do it, but this is the first to mind.  When I went there before I came home with a billion ideas in my head and the house looked soooooo blah after all the color and beauty of Disney World in general!  What you can do with tile!

Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

my lack of people-skills is apparent.  I’m just a plain ol’ counrty girl, and have been accused of being hermit-like by those who know me best, so I hate social stuff….and sometimes it really shows 😦

Main Course
What values did your parents instill in you?

Honesty, a good work ethic, love for all kinds, respect for others, responsibility, perseverance…

Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

Bandanas worn on all parts! LOL 

Big hair – I’ve got pictures!

Flipped up collars…..totally awesome!

I’ll give you three guesses, but the first two don’t count!

Happy Letterboxer News

I felt well enough today to think straight!  Ok, so I still can’t breathe half the day, but I can stay awake and I can think!  I’ve had a letterbox ready for planting for about a month now, and since we had lovely weather and I feel like myself again, my son and I planted it 🙂 🙂 🙂  It was a lot of fun!  The clues to my first plant were so dull and boring.  I was rushed and I just couldn’t get creative under the pressure.  Today we spent two hours planting and writing clues, so it should be a fun one to find.  I also have already been sitting here for too long typing the clues into and having much trouble doing it the way I wanted to.  I wanted to design a clue page in my scrapbook software, save it and post it on the website as a photo clue, but the site couldn’t open it after I went through all the trouble of designing it and so I had to type it all up again!  I hope I don’t have any typos in it 🙂  Like I said before: been sittin’ here entirely too long – adios! 

Better than Nothin’

Well, hello again!  I’ve been missing in action, and then missing but out of action.  (I was crazy busy and then I got sick…wonder if there’s a connection?)  I think I’m on the mend – finally 🙂  I still don’t feel great today, but I got a reminder for this one, and that made it easy, so here goes:

Which snack do you like to get when you go to the movies?

My honey usually gets us a big popcorn to share, and I eat it ’cause it’s there, but if it were totally up to me, I’d skip the snacks and just have a drink.  I feel distracted from the movie.

What year did you start using the internet?

Hmmm. Let me see.  This is gonna be funny.  It was 1999.  We had a computer before then, but no access and no money to do anything about that!

What is your first name in Pig Latin? (Here’s how to speak it if you don’t already know!)


Main Course
Name something you are picky about.

Everything.  It’s a serious problem!  Not food, but, well, I’m a recovering perfectionist.  There you have it:)  I’m one of those “if you want something done right…..” types.  I apologize, but I truly feel that way.

Fill in the blanks: I _felt_ _better_ yesterday and I _feel_ _ok_ today.
