Friday Feast One Hundred & Twelve

Wanna play? Click here: Friday Feast One Hundred & Twelve

Measured in minutes or hours, how much exercise have you had in the last week?

I don't much do regulated exercise, so I'm gonna have to make a guess. I walk the dog a couple times a day and I vacuumed and shampooed the carpets in every room of the house, and I run up and down the stairs about fifty times a day, DD and I ran around the house several times yesterday... hmm... I dunno: 3 hours?

If you had to change your blog title to something else, what would it be?

Marianne Arkins: Award Winning Novelist of more than One Hundred Best-Selling Books! (Would that fit?)

Name one television show you watched when you were 9-12 years old.

"Battlestar Galactica" (the original one... the best one... I HATE the new one... grrr...) On a side note, my mom asked me "Whatever happened to that guy who played Face on the A-Team?" and since I'd had such a crush on Dirk Benedict from his Starbuck (yeah... you know... when "buck" actually meant "male") days. It made me feel OLD. Did you know he was born in 1946??? He's SIXTY. How did that happen?

Main Course
If someone gave you $50 to spend with the one condition that it had to be educational, what would you purchase?

I'd wait to get another $79 and spend it on this really cool talking globe at the Discovery Store (I've been coveting it for a couple years now)

Or, I'd apply it toward the $400+ I spend on my DD's curriculum every year.

Or... hey -- you're talking to a homeschooling mom. I could think of a hundred educational ways to spend $50!

Do you tend to prefer dark colors, neutral shades, or lighter/pastel hues?

Dark or gem colors for clothes mostly. Seldom neutral shades, they wash me out. Sometimes lighter/pastel hues, but that's usually only what I like in my environment (the walls of the room, etc) not in cloting. Not that the question specified clothing, but that's where my brain took it.

Thanks for visiting!

I actually like the new Battlestar Galactica, but then I like a lot of sci-fi shows. :) Have a great Friday! :)


Your appetizer is great and your soup is more than fitting.
Thanks for feasting with me.

How did I forget BattleStar Galactica (hate the new one too)
My kids and I have had our eye on the same globe. We homeschool also =)

Great Feast!
Thanx For dining with me

Dirk Benedict still looks pretty darn good for 60!

I like the new Battlestar Galactic. It's nothing like the original, so it's easy to separate the two. :)

Well, of course the original Battlestar Galactica was the best! When the new series first came out I was so looking forward to seeing what hunk played Starbuck.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. How in the world (or outerspace) could they change the hot womanizing Starbuck for a woman????? Just sooo not right!

And I bet at age 60 Dirk Benedict (who graced my bedroom walls for years growing up) is still a hottie!!

OOh, that is a cool globe.

I loved the old BSG, but I like the new one, too!
