(Bacon egg and cheese bagel from McDonald's, and a small hot chocolate, FYI)
And now, Friday's Feast
Appetizer - If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?
I would probably be a Jack Russell, Chihuahua or Poodle. It would be my opportunity to be little and ubercute (at 5'8" and big boned I'm anything but little.) I'd wear a little rhinestone collar and go by the name Sparkle.
Soup - What does the color purple make you think of?
Easy one: The book. My recollection of The Color Purple was that it was a good book. I remember it making me cry, though I'm not sure why. It introduced me to lots of grown up material. Hmm. Perfect read for Black History Month... I should probably dig it out.
Salad - Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?
That depends. If I've showered the night before and I want to "go all out"... then it's about 40 minutes. If I don't care what I look like, then it's more like 15-20 minutes, tops. If I haven't showered and I still want to "go all out," we're talking a good hour. And that's if Good Morning America isn't on...
Main Course - How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?
Well, that's a tricky one. Lots of variables at work on this one, but I'm not really close to any of my cousins. My dad's an "only," so we have second cousins on that side that we never see or talk to. My mom has one sister, who happens to have three children, but we're not close to those first cousins, either. Mom and her sister aren't talking right now (I hate family disputes over possessions) so naturally us kids don't talk, either. We were never close with the Cousins though, my nuclear family of five is plenty enough for me... especially now that we've started bringing spouses into the picture.
Dessert - Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for.
Kids love clowns.
