Feast One Hundred & Thirty Five
Name two things that made you smile this week.
The beautiful view of Long Island Sound (see picture in previous post).
Fill in the blank: Don't you hate it when ________?
You have to pee so badly, but you can't get your pants undone quickly enough, and you already start unbuttoning as you enter the bathroom, before you are even in the stall, and it's like your bladder knows you're almost there so it starts the delivery process, but you are still unbuttoning, so you are doing the little dance and holding your legs in an "X" and maybe grabbing your crotch, a little bit, like a 4-year old ... and then a colleague walks into the bathroom?
I love that.
When you can't go to sleep, what is your personal remedy to help yourself drift into Lullabyland?
I think about what death will be like, and wonder if I can pay all my bills this month, and worry about whether that kid who has been such a jerk all week is going to be good for the sub tomorrow. That usually knocks me right out.
Really, I drink a cup of Sleepytime and read a soothing escape book, like Lord of the Rings.
What is something about which you've always wondered but have not yet found a good answer?
I wonder at what point in evolution biological molecules began to spontaneously make copies of themselves.
What is your favorite pasta dish?
Lasagna! No, wait ... baked ziti with meatballs. No, fettucine with shrimp and asparagus. Tuna noodle casserole, maybe. Portobello Tortellini with olive oil and crushed salt. Umm ... yeah, lasagna.
