Friday's feast 193

june 13 2008


Do you consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist?

More of a realist.
I know about 85% of what you think becomes a self-fullfilling prophecy.
I'm an idealist, so I dream big.

I think people can do far better than they think and do.
But I don't expect some of them to change the world, even when they try to convince me.

So, I'm a bit of everything.


What is your favorite color of ink to write with?

Aqua and red.
I know. I know. I should have chosen one.
But I choose depending on my mood, you see, and on the pen I'm writing with.


How often do you get a manicure or pedicure? Do you do them yourself or go to a salon and pay for them?

Me? Going to a salon and paying?
No way!
I can't have someone touching my feet.

So I do it myself whenever it's necessary.

Main Course

Have you ever won anything online? If so, what was it?

Well, I hoped to have won the gardenhouse in the contest of last month of one of the main DIY shops. But I haven't heard anything about it anymore, so I guess I haven't won.

Last year I've won some books and stuff in the give-away festival organised by Shannon.
Never received one item, let alone everything.

But a nice strawberry pin is on its way, so yes, I've won.

And I've won some money towards my smallpipes.


In which room in your house do you keep your home computer?

Downstairs, between the livingroom and the diningroom.

It allows me to keep an eye on both rooms, and the kitchen and even the back garden (mirrored in the screen).

I've been dreaming about having my computer in my gardenhouse.........

  1. I so agree with you about pedicures and manicures, Laane. I can understand someone maybe wanting a manicure for a special occasion, but otherwise, it seems ridiculous to spend so much on something I can do myself. And I hate people touching my feet, too. Have a great weekend!

  2. Wow. What a well thought post you had today. I liked every single answer (including the red vs aqua dilemma) :-)

    Please find my feast here.

    Also, I got the best Father's Day gift ever today. Wanna check? It's here. Sorry for the unrelated link, but I'm just so proud!

    Happy Feasting, and have a great weekend!

  3. Great feast today! Congrats on your winnings!

    Mine’s up…come on over.

    Also, I’d like to ask you to answer the question I have in the post below my feast. THANKS!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I like your response to the appetizer question - and I think it's great to be a mix between a realist and an idealist - it means that you have hope, but don't live with your head in the clouds!

    Happy Friday! I'm late getting my FF up, but come visit if you get a chance!


Thank you for your comment.
