Friday Feast

When you travel, which mode of transportation do you prefer?

Car, if possible! I really love driving and seeing the world go by. Of course, if I need to cover a very long distance in a short amount of time, planes are just fine, too!

Have you ever met a blogging friend in person?

Only those that were my friends BEFORE I started reading their blogs. So far, I've never met a person through blogging before I met them in person.

When was the last time you were really, really tired?

Is that a trick question? Does now and every other minute of every day count? Honestly, though, there was a night a few weeks ago when I realized during dinner that I was in serious danger of falling alseep with my face in my plate and left the table to head right to bed. That's probably the most tired I've been recently.

Main Course
If you could have dinner with any one fictional character from a book or movie, who would it be?

It would have to be the fun, energetic, eccentric, world-travelling, orphan-adopting, martini-drinking, career-changing, party-throwing Mame Dennis Burnside from the movie Auntie Mame!!! I first fell in love with her in college. Who knew then that my life would bear a pale resemblance to hers??? There are obvious big differences betweeen our lives, however, I'd say that our basic outlooks on life are very similar.

I imagine that our dinner together would start with a hearty happy hour, then proceed into tapas appetizers, followed by Vietnamese Pho Soup. For our entree, we might dine upon Indian curries and tikkas and dessert would be something served ablaze!!! Of course, each course would be accompanied by an appropriate bottle of wine or cocktail! The only drink we'd never even consider drinking would be a daiquiri made with honey!!!

We'd talk about the various places we've travelled to, boast about the sons we've adopted and how proud we are of them, we'd gossip about friends and strangers alike, and bash small-minded people.

Fill in the blank: One day, I hope to see _______________.

My great-grandchildren become Bat and/or Bar Mitzvahs!
