Appetizer - Where do you go when you want to relax?
I usually go to a great park where I can walk around, take time to smell the flowers (literally) and enjoy the gifts of nature. They're sooo underrated.
Soup - Tell about something that made you laugh this week.
Oh wow. I've got this hilarious friend Wilhelm whom I was lucky enough to see Wednesday in Cincinnati. He is one of the funniest guys I've ever met. Kind of funny in a dry sense, kind of funny in a wacky sense. I know, strange combination. Anyway. He made me laugh -so- much Wednesday, but my favorite moment probably was when my car got hit Thursday morning. Seriously. Someone rear ended my car Thursday morning before I made my way back to Lexington. It happened around 7:30 in the morning (and I was in a dead-stupor kind of sleep) and Wilhelm ran down the house steps and woke me up in a tizzy. My car, as I've already expanded on, is a piece of junk (but it's paid for, so that's a major plus). So Wilhelm and I ran out there and explored the bumper, which was already tarnished by a few spots of peeling paint. The whole moment was so bizarre, but it actually was very comical for me.
Salad - What is your favorite texture?
What context are we talking here? Am I getting tied up? Then I'd definitely have to say silk. Am I going to sleep? Then I'd say 400 thread count 100% cotton. Am I laying on the floor? Then I'd have to say a nice, plush carpet. I HATE the texture of those weird blankets you can only find in hotels. So weird.
Main Course - If you were to publish your autobiography, what would the first sentence be? "It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child." Gotta love Steve Martin.
Seriously, it would probably be something like this: You know, I never did stop learning things the hard way.
Dessert - Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? If so, how?
Faith and beggorah! Of course I celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I have a pin I've been wearing for about 24 years now (wow, I'm old) that says Kiss Me I'm Irish. So far, nobody's taken me up on that (well, at least as far as I can remember. After a few pints of green beer, things can get hazy). I actually am more of a fan of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day. And I always make a special point of hearing some great Irish music, even if that means I have to put in my Chieftains CD.
