Friday's Feast 191

A library is a hospital for the mind. ~ Anonymous



Appetizer

What is the nearest big city to your home?

We live near the biggest city in New Hampshire: Manchester. But with a population of merely 107,006 it doesn't really qualify. I'd have to say Boston, MA -- ringing in with a population of 589,141.

Soup

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets?

I'd have to say 9. I mean, after all, you didn't know about that time I... erhm... never mind.

Seriously, though, I'm a world class secret keeper. Feel free to share yours *G*.

Salad

Describe your hair (color, texture, length).

I have thick (not just how much hair, but each individual hair!), dry, frizzy, super curly, impossible to tame reddish-brown (going to gray, *sigh*) hair. My hairdresser tells me she cuts more hair off my head for a "trim" than most people HAVE on their heads. I have yet, in 41 years, learned how to deal with it so most days I pull it into a braid or a ponytail.

Main Course

What kind of driver are you? Courteous? Aggressive? Slow?

I drive the speed limit (thereby annoying everyone else on the road), I obey the traffic laws, and I let people in when they need it. That said, I also despise pushy drivers, and nothing annoys me more on the road when someone does something like zoom past me in a lane they KNOW is ending (or on the shoulder), just to get four cars farther ahead and then try to shove their way in. In those cases, I admit to having a tendency to kiss the bumper ahead of me and then look straight ahead (I don't see you....) -- hmmm, am I really that passive aggressive?

Dessert

When was the last time you had a really bad week?

Last week. That's all I'll say. I have NO desire to relive it.

=========================

Yesterday, I looked into doggy daycare for Dakota. I think I'm going to start putting her in one day a week. I hate to spend money on something that isn't really necessary, but honestly -- I need one day for my sanity. I took a tour of the facility and they even have an indoor pool for the dogs!! In fact, for $20 you can reserve the pool for you, your family or friends, and dogs for an hour on the weekend. How cool is that?

Anyway, she'll go in for an "evaluation day" next week where they'll see how she does, see what group of dogs she'll fit in with for the playtimes, etc., and then I think we'll start the once a week trip the following week.

Yay. Freedom!

Uh. No.

I am, possibly, the least optimistic person you'll ever meet, LOL...But, fact is, this quiz didn't give me "real" choices and I had to select the lesser of evils. Oh well.

Ah yes, the whole gray hair dilemma. I refuse to give it to even acknowledging it, and my hairdresser is quite talented at covering it up, right now. Gray. Yuck.

Hi there - I also live in NH, but figured no one would know where manchester was LOL We live up north, though, so my answer still makes sense.

Those kinds of drivers also drive me crazy - and I talk to them out loud all the time LOL It's nice not having to deal with them much now , living in tiny town, usa.

I had no idea doggy day care even exists. Thanks for teaching me something new! How interesting!

Have a great weekend. :)

Glad you found a cool day care for Dakota. One day a week will be great for you.

Have a wonderful weekend!

That is so cool about the doggy daycare for Dakota. Is this in addition to the doggie school she goes to?

The pool rental sounds completely awesome!

We have the same hair! I, too, have thick, coarse, dry, frizzy, curly hair...and enough of it for six people! It's even the same color! Too funny.

Our cats are twins, our hair is the same....hmmm, there's a sci fi thriller in there somewhere...

My mom takes her border terrier to doggy daycare. It's great. If Dakota is social (and it sounds like she is), this could really be a good deal--for both of you. ;-)

Have a great weekend, Marianne!

Doggy Day Care sounds like just what you need! I hope things go well with her evaluation!
I, too, pull my hair back every day. (French braid.) I've noticed some gray this year as well. *G*

As for the quiz:"Your musical tastes are intense and rebellious.
You are intelligent... but in a very unconventional way.

You are curious about the world. You love doing something new.
In fact, you enjoy taking risks and doing things most people would shy away from.
You are very physical. It's likely that you're athletic, but not into team sports.
You have the soul of an artist. Beauty and harmony are important to you." Huh. I'm not big on risks actually!

Have a wonderful Friday!

What's a hairdresser? (asks Groovy who cuts her own bangs - hahahahahaha!)

Doggy Daycare? With a pool?

I see a new career for all this land we live on...
