Friday's Feast #6

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how much do you like your own handwriting?

On cards/letters, it’s a 10. In my check book register, it’s a 4…guess I don’t like to write down what I’ve spent!

Do you prefer baths or showers?

Showers. I just don’t have time for a bath…if I’m going to run all that water, I'd like to soak in it for a while…no time for that.

What was the last bad movie you watched?

Define bad. R-rated? I don’t watch those. Bad, as in ‘wish I hadn’t wasted my time’? may disagree with me here, but I could not get into the third Pirates of the Caribbean. It just seemed beyond 'hokey' to me.

Main Course
Name something you are addicted to and describe how it affects your life.

Avon’s Strawberry Lip Balm. A very goofy addiction. When I buy it, it’s usually on sale for $.69…I buy 15 or 20. I keep them in my purse, my pocket, my bathroom and in my Bible cover. If I discover that I have somehow left the house without one on hand, I get very upset. It just about ruins my day. I swear, there must be some sort of drug in that stuff. My husband once sent me a link to Lip Balmers Anonymous.

Which instrument is your favorite to listen to?

I’m cheating on this one b/c I’m not sure I can pick just one instrument. Get ready to call me a dork. My dad and I are the only people I know of who like Yanni. (my husband, no way) Ever heard of him? Well, he is an amazing composer that we first saw on a PBS special long ago. We got his CD and blasted it throughout the house…it’s a great memory. Here comes even more dorkiness. When I was 20, I had my wisdom teeth cut out…that didn’t stop me from driving to Little Rock with my dad to see Yanni in concert. Huh…I haven’t listened to him in a while…must go find that CD.

I also don't like Pirates of the Caribbean! And yes, I love Yanni too! HappyFF!

Marsha said...

Well I love that you're the first person I've come across to mention Yanni.

Nice feast here, I hope you'll stop by mine if you get a chance!

Have a great weekend!

Char said...

I'm loving the new look of your blog! Beautiful!

ToolSmartz said...

Ah yes, the Yanni trip... IIRC, you wound up sleeping in the back seat most of the time. Poor thing.

And you're right, the memory of those kettle drums throughout our small house in Frayser IS a good'un.

I LOVE Yanni! Have a couple of the piano books for me to play- ok, attemt to play, it can get a bit complicated with my small fingers. :)

Kelli said...

I thought it was me.... I have put on Pirates of hte Caribean so many times and I keep falling asleep. I can sleep anywhere except my bed, I cant sleep with a movie on (or tv) but pirates... I can for some reason. We have all three and I cant get past a few minutes into number one,

We dont watch rated R movies either, its nice to meet someone else who doesnt. YIPPIE

I have listened to Yanni, but with kids the last 23 years, I rarely get time for my own music, right now its wiggles or doodlebobs in the car.

I think we have alot in common. Take care, have a great weekend.

rthling said...

Yanni? I didn't know anyone else liked him, too. Yet another reason I think you're cool. I've been listening to him forever! Plus, he's not hard to look at ;-)

Are You Serious! said...

♥ Great list. I actually have a Yanni CD... I don't listen to it all the time, but I do like symphonies and a host of other music! I'm not an R-rated movie watcher either and my husband is the chap stick man around here!

Doran & Jody said...

Eh heh. I love your main course. You sound like my daughter. She about goes crazy if she doesn't have chapstick with her reach 24/7. Thanks for stopping by.

Sniz said...

There' a Lip Balm Anonymous? If there were a Decorator's Anonymous, I'd so be there! (If they took decorators with no money to REALLY decorate and who watch HGTV compulsively.)

Laane said...

OK, send me the link to lip balm anonymous too, please.
I am addicted.

My friday's feast is ready for you at:

Laane on the World

Have a great weekend!

I'm glad I'm not alone in my dislike for Pirates of the Caribbean. Loved the ride... not such a fan of the movie. I mean COME ON, who wants to look at GROSS THINGS for two hours??

Kellan said...

I only every take a bath if I feel bad - it makes me feel so much better. When I was pregnant with my kids - I was often in the bathtub!

Have a good weekend - see you soon. Kellan

Fun stuff -- I like the pirates movies but only because Orlando Bloom is kinda HOT!!! The third was pretty stupid. I havenot thought of Yanni in years, can't say I am a fan. ;)


Amy said...

You have a beautiful blog!:)

Brittany said...

Ohhh pretty new background! (it is new, right??)

And yes, you're the only one who likes Yanni. ;) haha. Just kidding. I am sure there are other crazy... I mean... fans out there. :) hahaha.

Happy Weekend!
