Friday's Feast...on Saturday

Well, since it was posted late yesterday, I think I'm still OK to put up my feast a day afterwards. Besides, who doesn't love leftovers?


Tell about a time when you had to be brave. Um...every time I step into a classroom full of teenagers? Traveling abroad in a foreign country where I didn't speak the language? Stepping to the starting line of a marathon and trusting that my body would make it to the end of 26 miles? Sometimes I think I'm brave just waking up in a world that faces so much adversity and struggle.

Which upcoming movie are you excited about seeing? Actually, I'd like to see The Pursuit of Happyness, Dreamgirls, and Half Nelson, all of which are in my Blockbuster Online queue.

Name an item you try to always have on hand. Olive oil. Always useful in the kitchen! Oh, and chocolate. Of course.

Main Course
Imagine the most relaxing room you can think of. Now describe it! Pillows, classical music, a fountain, an unlimited library, soft, warm colors, and chocolate. Of course.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being highest), how spiritual or religious are you? Not being a fan of organized religion, I still consider myself a fairly spiritual person in my views of the universe and karma and good begetting good and believing in a higher power than oneself. So I'll say 6.

I completely agree with your appetizer (except for the marathon part--yikes!). Teaching high school is not for the faint of heart.

Thanks for sharing my feast.

Cool idea, Allie -- and thanks so much for your sweet comment about my Crappy Band Manifesto. Love your blog; as an Orange County teacher and writer myself, I can relate.

One last thing: If you happen to read this before we start playing, there's some original, genuine, from-the-heart, acoustic music happening today (5/12) at WV's in Goshen (47 West Main Street), from 1-3 pm -- and it's free! Hope to see you there!
