friday's feast

november 30 2007



Appetizer
What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride?


We're never going to amusement parks. Can't. They're too far away and too expensive.
I like the observation wheel, though. The higher the better.

Soup
How do you react in uncomfortable social situations?


That depends.

When I'm in a meeting I feel myself becoming more businesslike and observant. Often even before the situation becomes uncomfortable at a conscious level.
I'm thinking more strategic then.

When people are trying to start a row with me, I back out. Unless I need to get things done for the children. Then I clearly state that I don't want a row, but that I need to get things arranged for the children, and then I state my wishes.

Competition is often for me uncomfortable too, regardless whether I'm the best or not.
Most of the time I don't play the game.
When someone wants to compete, OK, but not with me.

When people are unkind to me I withdraw from the situation, but go back at a later time and ask why.


Salad
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics?

At 100.
We Dutch like to discuss..a lot!!
Foreigners often think that we're arguing, but were just duscussing matters and can drink a beer later without any problem.


Main Course
Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to?


Yes, I did.
I'm a diabetic and I have asthma, so I got the advice to get the shot.

I've had a bad flu just a month before the shut and was very ill. So I was motivated this year.


Dessert
Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television?

Let's see:

  • 250 min As The World Turns 50 min a day 5 days
  • 50 Casualty
  • 50 Holby
  • 50 House

So that's 400 min, add the news, occassionally some cabaret.

Say 8 hours.

  1. That's awful about the flu! It's funny that you figured out how much tv you watch by show- if I'd tried that, the list would be a page long! lol

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I think my son's girlfriend must be an exception. She doesn't discuss she sits there as a decoration or she starts to cry ! I always have a lot of fun with her friends but she must have had an undertaker as ancestor !

  3. So my love is discussion comes from my Dutch ancestry??? Interesting...wonder if that explains my mother's habit of engaging complete strangers in conversation anywhere she goes.

    Great feast!!!

  10. Great feast! I would hate to get the flu and become too sick. I had 2 shots this year. The older you get, the more vulnerable you are to sickness.

    Thanks for stopping by.
