Friday Feast

(push the button)

Feast One Hundred & Thirty Five

Appetizer
Name two things that made you smile this week.

The beautiful view of Long Island Sound (see picture in previous post).
The fact that Paula Abdul is completely faded all the time.


Soup
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.

Salad
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.

Main Course
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.

Dessert
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.

Soup: ...or you work in an public place where you're the usually the only one at work and You have to pee so badly, but you can't get your pants undone quickly enough, and you already start unbuttoning... as you walk/run toward the BACK of the building, down the hallway, where the bathroom is and, damn it, someone walks through the front door so you have to quickly button your pants (and pretend not to be) so you can greet them.

Appetizer: My daughter letting me borrow her tiny pink teddy bear to keep in my pocket and my wife umm ... doing .. umm wifely things.

Soup: My wife's ex-husband can't take care of his own insurance so I have to do it for him.

Salad: For the polite audience it's a nice lubricant and a trip to "the amusement park". That or count backwards from 1099.

Main Course: How dinasuars fit into the Biblical timeline.

Dessert: Mmmm lasagna bolonaise.

i almost think that the universe and the sun and the planets are a form of life (not the conscious kind though of course), therefore it spurns very simple life in a liquid water atmosphere which evolves to greater complexity over evolution.

or something like that...

so maybe the real question is when did molecules copy themselves prior to evolution?

whoa! that's cosmic man!
