From Friday's Feast

If you were a color, which color would you be, and why?
Red, because with my new (blonde again) hair style and my minus 12.5 lbs, I am red-hot, bi-otch.

When was the last time you went to the doctor, and what was your reason for going?
Wednesday. I decided I'm not going to tolerate my adult acne any longer, so I sought out some face time with the dermatologist. A $20 copay and 60 bucks for four prescriptions (one for that pesky, three-times-a-year cold sore) later, things seem to be getting on the right track.

I am trying to stave off a trip to the internist for my newest ailment: an ear infection.

What do you collect?
Weird. I was just thinking abiut this last night. I collect wheat pennies, unique pint glasses from bars around the world (that I've been to), matches from hip establishments, Tiffany jewelry, personal stories of heartache, sweaters from J Crew, cute handbags and recipes.

Main Course
What were you like in high school? Name one thing you miss and one thing you don't miss about those days. (If you're still there, imagine how you'll remember it in the future.)
I was a dork. I was one of those artsy fartsy people who did multiple choirs and stage productions. I volunteered a bunch and never went to one wild HS party. One thing I miss: the singing. I was almost a Voice major in college but shunned my most favorite hobby (and I suppose one of my best talents) when my parents said they wouldn't pick up the tab for a major that led to a crappy income. I got them back by picking Journalism. One thing I don't miss: the bad hair and bad clothes. Now that it's my dime, things have gotten a lot better.

Pretend you're standing in front of your home, with your back towards your home. Describe the view - what can you see? Trees? Cars? A zoo? Wal-Mart?
I see a parking lot behind one of Cincinnati's popular pizza chains. I see a funeral home that looks like it came out of the pages of a Bavarian travel magazine. I see cars parked on the street, and an old time theatre very reminiscent of the 20th Century.
