It's Playoff Time!!

And I'm doing a happy dance because the Cleveland Indians beat the Yankees last night, a whopping 12-3. One game down, two to go!!!


Here's my Friday Feast. I'm so glad it's the end of the week!

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you look forward to your birthday?
Oh, I don't know...maybe a 5-6? It's in December, around Christmas, which is such a busy time of year that there are a hundred other things taking up my attention at that time.

What is one word you don’t like the sound, spelling, or meaning of?
I'm a writer...I love all words!

Do you wear sunglasses when you’re outside? If so, what does your current pair look like?

Well, if it's sunny, then yes, at least most of the time. I have a big, oversized pair right now that I love. I also have a great pair of Nike sports sunglasses for when I run.

Main Course
If you were to write a book, to whom would you dedicate it?
Ooh, I love this question most of all! I just published my first novel, and this is the dedication:

"For my parents, who taught me to love language, and for my Mrs. Stokoe, my fifth grade teacher, who was the first person to tell me I'd be a writer someday."

Name a beverage that you enjoy.
Starbucks Grande Nonfat Latte. Oh yeah!

Main Course:
I'm not supposed to start the day weeping, Allie, but I guess tears of joy are good.


Mrs. Stokoe will be thrilled.

Love your soup and main course.

My feast is served, won't you come dine with me?

Yen said...

I love your soap too! I wish I am a writer:) Nice feast here!

Happy Friday!

Nicole said...

LOL At your Soup. Your main course is interesting since I already have my dedication for my first book written too, and nope not published yet. LOL

Great feast!

I can't THINK OF A GOOD DEDICATION. Gack... I feel like such a dork. I haven't a clue who to dedicate Liv to.

*sigh* I have a couple weeks to decide.

So... are you going to hit me if I say, "Go, Rockies!!!"?

wow, congratulations on your first novel!! Have a wonderful Friday.

Mel said...

Shame on you. You made your mother cry early in the morning. Can't blame you though because I just sent off my dedication and it said, "For my mother who got me off that typewriter to a computer. I love you."

I figure it'll get me brownie points, because I'm announcing to the world I love her. It'll come in handy when I want her to watch the kids for next year's National's.

Very good feast, Allie.

Becca said...

Congratulations on your main course! Love the dedication!

Alice Teh said...

Your dessert sounds wonderful and your "Oh yeah" made it sound even more tempting. LOL.

Bless Mrs. Stokoe!!

Have a good weekend, Allie! :)

Happy FF

I find your "Friday Feast" posts to be interesting, and I've read two so far. Very nice Main Course, especially. It's always good to make Mom happy, right?

The dedication in my book is "For my brother Mark because I promised, and for Aidan because it's been a long time coming."
