Fridays Feast 11/2/07

I did it. I met with someone in person who I've met on the internet. Despite my nervousness at the start, I had a wonderful lunch with Marguerite, a fellow knitting blogger. I did feel a bit like a chatty Kathy, which I do when I'm nervous. I'm sorry if I talked your ear off Marguerite.

Thanks for meeting with me Marguerite. It was wonderful to get to meet you in person (and thanks for leaving the ax home--heh heh, a joke. Honest!). I hope we can get together again.

After lunch I took her to Harmony Yarns, my favorite of the yarn shops in this area. We both bought sock yarn-heh heh. All in all it was a great time. I'd do it again. Knitters, in general, are a great bunch of people.

Last night daughter Ruth called with some totally unexpected news. I have a new Grandkitty! Apparently the apartment she lives in allows pets. She and her roommate have wanted a kitty since they first moved in and finally could not stand it any longer. They went to the local animal shelter and adopted Linndamon, a ginger and white tabby ("with the cutest white toes!"), 6 months old, female, and "the sweetest thing!" The name is a little unusual. Her name was Lindsey. They didn't like it. They wanted to call her Cinnamon. But decided to meld the two names together and came up with something unique. We'll get to meet Linndamon over Thanksgiving break. Ruth is bringing her here when she comes home. (I see an angry Silver taking his feelings out on my doggies in the near future.)

Now on to this weeks edition of Friday's Feast.

How much money do you plan to spend this upcoming holiday season?

Just enough and not too much.

What was the last television show you watched, and was it good?

Good Morning America (this morning). It was okay.

If you had to paint the walls of your living room tomorrow, what color would you choose?

A pale sage green.

Main Course
Name something clever or practical you have thought of that should be invented, but hasn’t yet.

Self cleaning laundry.

List 3 things you would like to receive as gifts this upcoming holiday season.

A new digital camera. A big box of really good cream filled chocolates. A year with no vet bills.

Have a great day.


  1. Your main course is my favorite. Wouldn't that be wonderful! LOL!

  2. Oh...the vet bills. I should have asked for that. We had to take our dog to the vet yesterday and it cost $294 for a sore throat. Hubby said they could just keep her!! LOL

  3. Dang, I wish I had read your Christmas list first...I needed to have a digital camera on mine. May your vet bills be low this holiday season!

  4. You didn't talk any more than I did! It was a great first meeting and I feel like like a have a new friend now.

    You WILL do lunch again, because I owe you a lunch a Michael D's now.

    I'm so sorry we didn't ask them to take our picture at the yarn shop. Isn't that standard procedure for two bloggers who meet? Oh well. We'll get it right next time.

  5. Lol! I even had my camera with me. Totally spaced the picture thing. We'll get it next time for sure.
