Fridays Feast 11/16/07

Four days to Tuesday.

For todays edition, I present Fridays Feast.

What was your first “real” job?

That would be summer librarian/custodian assistant at Camelot Elementary school, in Federal Way, Washington (where I grew up). My parents were very poor. When I was 14 there was a state program started called the Work Training Program. It was for 'underprivileged' teenagers and basically provided job training experience. I qualified and got in. I was assigned this cool job of running the school library (it was open for summer book reading), and I also had to help the school janitor with the cleaning. I really enjoyed this job a lot.


Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?

At the moment- to the pile of knitting and beading magazines sitting on the coffee table in front of me. If I actually have to leave the house, I'd go to one of the beading or knitting shops in my area, or the book store (for beading or knitting books).


Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

I fart in public.

Main Course

What values did your parents instill in you?

I would say high moral values with a deep respect, love, and caring for others, which, considering how abusive my childhood was, I'm still wondering how they did that.


Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

Hip huggers, platform shoes, disco dancing.

Have a great day.


  1. oops, yeah, I forgot about the accidental toot ...
