friday's feast

december 14 2007

Make up a word and give us its definition.

It's actually a word one of my children made up when he was little.
floepstoep (floopstoop)
It's a heightened area in the street to keep the speed of cars down.

What is currently your favorite song?

The song that keeps popping up in my mind: "nothing compared..."
and the song I'm learning: "lambada del serpente".

I guess the christmassongs will crawl in my mind soon.

What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year?

Well, as my online friends know: we've already had our gift-event: Sinterklaas.
But right now I need a watch. And if I had a choice I would choose a pocketwatch, as it fits well with my bagpipers uniform too.

Main Course
Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life.

Cinnamon: remembers me of my gram, a friend that used to make cinnamon tea for me, another one who treated me cinnamon buns.

And fresh baked cake... awww... me and my gram in this time of year.
I got the apples from the cellar, peeled and slices them,
and we threw rum in, cinnamon, lemon.....
Ohh, the smell.......

Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why?

Ugh... I try not to pay attention to something like that.
I don't like the know-it-all, the one who shocks others to get a point across, who laughs at the expense of others.

I'm not sure if I want to be santa claus...



  1. That word in Appetizer sure sounds funny. I like cinnamon too.


  2. i love the scent of cinnamon.
    As for your appetizer, I bet the kiddos have had a hard time straightening their tongues after saying floopstoop. Here, we call it hump. We have so many humps here because our street is a national playgroud

  3. I like your word?!! We call them 'speed bumps' here in America. But if only the word that you made up would take 'hold, we'd have a better place. Cool

    Happy feasting.

  4. Great feast! Thanks for visiting mine :)

  5. I'm loving everyones main course today. An excellent question and I love your response. Such precious memories. Have a great FF and weekend. :)

  6. When you get your pocket watch, please post a picture. My father and dad-in-law both have one..they're beautiful! Great feast and I love the Christmasy look of your blog! Thank you for stopping by! *smiles*

  7. oh I absolutely love cinnamon buns! My sister can make them perfectly. Mine are not so good... :(
    Happy Feasting!

  8. I like your appetizer word, very funny! :)

  9. Oh yeah.... Grandma's make good main courses.... it's been so long.. maybe I'll have to look up a recipe she used to make.. thanks for the reminder!


  10. cool that our main courses are so similar :-) I wish I had memories of my mom's mom, she died before I was born. I have several of my grandma, but few directly connected with a memory, other than the detergent they use (and Shower to Shower for grandpa :-))

    Thanks for the visit & comment! :-)

    Happy Feasting!

  11. Love your main course - I've always found the smell of cinnamon to be comforting & relaxing. :)

    Have an excellent weekend!
