Six Small Meals A Day

From Friday's Feast
What do you want for Valentine's Day?
The reassurance that the stud I'm crushin' on is diggin' me back.

If you could change the color of something you own, what would it be and which color would you make it?
The only thing I can think of is this banana colored bridesmaid dress I have. The style is great (though I'd have it shortened to knee length) but the color is hideous. All the time I consider dying it black.

What's your favorite day of the week and why?
That's a toughie. Saturday isn't completely Banner because sometimes I spend a long 10 hours babysitting my two little monkeys. Sunday is great until about 9:00 PM when it hits me I have to go to work in the morning. Friday is good except for that whole being at work thing. Monday totally blows and Tuesday is sooooooo boring. Wednesday it's my weekly catch-up day with friends and Thursday is okay because I know Friday's around the corner. I guess I'd have to say Sunday is best because it's mine, all mine (pipe in evil witch laugh here).

Main Course
What excuse do you use most often?
It's so lame... but I use work as an exuse. People are sometimes wrongly mystified with what I do for a living, so if I say I was working late it usually puts a stop to any further questions they may have about my tardiness/absense/disinterest/exhaustion/poverty or stress level.

Name something or someone you feel sorry for.
I feel very sorry for my parents. I strongly believe my father was the victim of age descrimination (among other things) at his previous employer. He lost his job over three years ago and was basically ushered into early retirement. Because of this... my parents are having to downsize and move to the Midwest. I'm thrilled they'll be much closer to me, but our little nuclear family is so sad to lose the family home. The house is so charming thanks to my mother's hard work to renevate what was once the worst house on the best street in town. Now the house is a showplace, and it will be very hard for all of us to part with it this summer.

But then again, there's always the Powerball lottery.

Just happened to find you out here when I hit one of my interest buttons. Interesting wandering through the electrons. I feel for your parents and their pending move. After 30 years in the workforce, I lost my job last year for the second time since 9/11 and that was pretty traumatic, especially after having worked straight through for many many years. So your Dad is not alone...there are millions of others too. And Kentucky isn't such a bad place to have to retire. I am seriously considering it myself at the moment, although I have a few years to go. I guess it depends on one's interests, hopes, and dreams. You'll at least have them nearby...hopefully, that will be a plus. Good luck with your life.
