friday's feast,

november 23 2007

As our chef is celebrating Thanksgiving and in his menu today is only turkey, for those who want to play anyway Gattina's put up a feast.
Here is the menu.

Imagine that you are deaf, dumb and insensitive to touch. What other image of happiness could you have?

Being deaf would be very difficult.
Music keeps me alive, so first I would try to find ways to restore a sense of hearing, even when that means feeling fibrations inside.

I've got a grotta. That's an instrument that is used for healing people.
I think I would use it far more than I do now.

Keeping my sight would be a real happiness.
I could travel all over the world, read and write.

Do you collect anything?

Oh yes: giraffes, little houses, fountain pens, teapots.
I love earrings and pendants, and musical instruments.
I stopped collecting children.

When do you start your Christmas?

Certainly not before Sinterklaas has gone. That's december 6.
Changing the home into a christmasfeel makes my autistic kid go nuts. He experiences it as a true change of the world and he has to find a new sense of home again.
So some years I decorate only minimal. Just depending how I feel about facing all the meltdowns.

Main Course
What would you do if you were in a corner and a snake was staring you down?

Stare back ...
Sheeshj...I don't know.
Maybe step towards it to make an end to the situation.

If you were in the library and had gas.

Who? Me? I never have gas???!!!



  1. :::laughing:::
    Your dessert if a good one. And me? Snakes? I fear snakes beyond anything else in this world.

    My feast of Gattina's is posted.

  2. Ah you collect little giraffes, that's funny I know owls, frogs, geese, elephants and cat collectors, but never a giraffe, lol !

  3. I love music as well and go to lots of concerts each year, so would find it difficult missing out on that.

  4. I'm still in the process of collecting children. LOL! I'm up to two. ;)

    Come visit my feast if you get a chance! :)

  5. Oh, your feast was great!
    Music is my thing, too. Can one use a grotta on themselves? ...Then again, playing any instrument would have a healing effect on me, even if it's just singing to myself in the car. :)
    Happy Friday!

  6. Very lovely feast.
    We celebrate Saint Nicholas in my family, Sinterklaas basically, so I guess that is when we officially celebrate, the kids get fruit, nuts, and chocolate in their stockings...some day I would love to have wooden shoes like I did when I was very little.

  7. This was a great feast - a little of everything.
