friday's feast #196

july 11 2008


When was the last time you had your hair cut/trimmed?

That was the day before the musical, so nearly two weeks ago.
I did it myself, as always.
I don't have long hair. It's at ear-length, so it isn't really easy.
But I hate the smells at thge barbershop, and I don't really like people messing with my head.

I was young, 12 or so I think, when three nieces won the national barbersaward. They were great!
To let me share in their success they thought me how to cut hair.
Then showed me how to cut my hair myself, and ápart from 3 or 4 times, I've done it myself.


Name one thing you miss about being a child.

People accepting you're singing on the street, and moving so smoothly.


Pick one: butter, margarine, olive oil.

No olive oil! I'm allergic to it.
No butter and no margerine for daily use. It's either halvarine or sunflower oil.

But I think that butter is the best ingredient for a good smell and taste of cookies and cake. (I hardly use it though).

Main Course

If you could learn another language, which one would you pick, and why?

Mmmm... I already speak a couple:
dutch, english, german...rather fluently
french ...pretty well
swedish and swahili...a bit.

So I guess it's either spanish or chinese.


Finish this sentence: In 5 years I expect to be…

I never ever think so far ahead.
Not with 4 autistic kids.

5 years....
When I've found a place for my autistic son to stay
I would love to travel the world.

But maybe they stress in my life has taken its toll and I'm already dead or I'm unable to travel.
Hopefully I'll be able to teach then.
Or maybe I've found my way back to my profession. My life has made me a damn good psychologist. Each time I'm dealing with people who have to diagnose my children the compliment my professor gave me comes back to life: "You're a very talented diagnostician, a damn good one." and I find myself feeling back at my lecturers job.
It's my ego speaking I guess when I say I would love to be a lecturer again.
But I expect all jobs will be taken by young ambitious people with less experience in real life.

Ugh...I feel old now!

  1. With interest I pursue here those always well and understandable written contributions and would like here gladly a greeting from Bavaria in Germany to leave!

  2. I enjoyed your feast.

    Big hugs to you on dealing with autism.

  3. That was a great feast. You know so many languages! Very impressive.

    If you add to that all the different things you do, like the musical and especially taking care of your many kids, I have to come to the conclusion that you're a time management wizard. Can you teach me? :-)

    Here is my post. Have a great weekend!
