friday's feast

january 18 2008



Appetizer
What is your favorite beverage?

Do you mean alcohol? (otherwise water is OK).

I don't have a favorite one, I have some favorites, and each one is a reflection of my mood.

I love Port, or Porto, as some call it.
I don't like wines, and because there's something in it what I'm not allowed to use because of a metabolic disease I never drink it. It's not in Port.
Port is for the lazy, laid back mood. For the long quiet discussion, for the time with a good friend, without clock, the slow drifting into the night.

I like Beerenburger.
It's a spirit made in the North of The Netherlands from local herbs.
It's dynamic, strong, fresh, and one way or another I can drink as much as I want and never get ill nor drunk.
It for being with friends and have fun and loud discussions. It makes me laugh and aware.

And I like whisky. Not the cheap one, the water with a taste. But the good golden glow where the scottish hills step in and one feels one can withstand the heaviest storms.
Well, I guess it's a bagpipers thing to drink it on every occassion.
But to be honest: when the taste is water with alcohol the plants die where I have been. LOL!
I like the old versions, that one can roll in the glass like cognacm and that makes one wants to smell it all the time.

Funny is I hardly raise a glass, I almost never drink.
Once in 3 months is much nowadays.
But maybe that makes me appreciate a quiet glass even more.

Oh and eh... when I drink, I use a good piece of Old Amsterdam with it.
That's a strong old cheese.
Well, I'm Dutch and we're cheese eaters.

Soup
Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or work.


Didn't I mention this last week too?

Right now:

coffee
lipcare
and a little bear I have to babysit for a little child here in the neighbourhood.


Salad
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?


9.
I'm very honest and straightforward, but I tell a white lie now and then to keep pthers happy.

Main Course
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?

I need a couple of years to think about this question.
I don't want to hurt people by changing the name of their town.

But maybe, maybe I want to change the name of a little city.. well, it's a street and a few houses, somewhere in the USA and it's called: The Netherlands.

Some people in a group thought that I was living there instead of in the marvellous country called: The Netherlands.

Dessert
What stresses you out? What calms you down?

What stresses me out:
Onprofessionalism in people who claim to be high standing professionals.
People who lie and cheat to get what they want.
People who don't stick to the law (like that careteam at school).

What calms me down:
The sea,
Making or listening music,
Getting on top of a situation.

  1. Great feast. I rarely drink alcohol, as it doesn't mix too well with medication I have to take most days - but I also like the occasional glass of good port. Happy Friday!

  3. I love your analysis on different alcohols - that's great! What's funny is that I have a full wet bar in my house that is fully loaded with various wines, liqours, beers, etc...but I might have two drinks each month at this point. Hilarious! Happy Weekend!

    I'm up now, too: Friday Feast #10

  4. We're not big drinkers at our house either, but I usually have a pretty good selection.. just in case I want something special :-)

    The sea relaxes me as well... when I lived in Brazil I did some of my best writing sitting on the beach, early in the mornings.

  5. I don't really like wine at all. But I don't really like alcohol. I drink specifically to fall asleep, LOL. Some of those flavored Malt Liquor things are ok, but I rarely drink them.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :-)
