Friday's Feast

This is something I will try to do every Friday. Click the post title or the link in the sidebar to have a feast of your very own!

Feast Sixty / Friday, August 19, 2005

Appetizer

Do you get excited when the season begins to change? Which season do you most look forward to?

I do get excited. It's hard for me to choose between summer-to-fall and winter-to-spring. If I have to pick just one, though, I will go with winter-to-spring. There is so much promise and new life in that change, that "death to life" exhileration that can only be a gift from our Creator.

Soup

What day of the week is usually your busiest?

It's really hard to tell, just because of the way my job works. But I think it's usually Monday, because that's when I type up a bulletin for students, so with that extra thing to do, plus students coming in more on that day it can get pretty hectic.

Salad

Would you consider yourself to be strict when it comes to grammar and spelling? What's an example of the worst error you've seen?

What a wonderful question...and I can't wait to see
Sarah's answer to this one! Yes, I do consider myself strict in those areas. I proof my emails before I send them out, for crying out loud! If that isn't strict, I don't know what is. Now, I know that I make mistakes, so just because I'm strict about it doesn't mean I get it right all the time. But I do like to try. Worst error I've seen? I'll have to go with the worst grammar error I've heard. A friend of mine was talking to a group of people. She wanted to make sure all of them did not forget their jackets before they left. Instead of saying, "Hey everyone, don't forget your jackets" using the collective 'you' she said -- and I promise this is what it was because I remember feeling my ears breaking off -- "Hey guys, don't forget YOURSES jackets." This was back when I seemed to have a difficult time holding my tongue about such things, so I'm pretty sure I gave her way more grief about it than she needed. I still correct others at times, but I am trying to improve in that area. People don't like being corrected, go figure!

Main Course


Who has a birthday coming up, and what will you give them as a gift?

The closest one I can think of at the moment is my nephew's ninth (ninth?!?) birthday on September 5. I'll probably confer with the parents and see what they're getting, plus talk with my sister to see if there are any specific wants or needs. I like being able to get a person what they want...what they really, really want. Ooh, please forgive me for the Spice Girls reference!

Dessert

If you could have any new piece of clothing for free, what would you pick?

I would either pick a long winter coat (preferably black, but maybe red) since I don't have one, or a really awesome 1950's vintage dress.

I guess everybody on Dork St proofs their emails. :)

Hey, I love it when people give me what I really, really want! I think people who give others what they really, really want, are the best kinds of givers. :)

LOL

Tracey,
If you're serious about wanting to kick the caffeine addiction, check out how many cups of coffee it takes to kill a person:

Food (or drink?) for thought.

227.50 cans of Diet Coke to kill a 150-lb person. That is, if the sugar didn't get you fisrt. (I'm assuming you'd have to drink it all in one day)

70.60 cups of Coffee (Drip)

Crazy crazy

BULLSEYE said...

The way I see it, this could be anywhere from truly enlightening to completely pointless and stupid.

Gosh, Tracey... you've got a LOT of comments here!!! Are these all ads?

tracey said...

Thanks Luke, for that info (although a little scary).

bullseye...um, thanks, I guess. Not sure what you are getting at there, but okay. =)

Yeah, Jolene, that was just tons of ads. I've never had that many, but now I know what Sarah was talking about!
