Friday's Feast

Name something you would categorize as weird.
I must be wierd because I cannot think of anything I would categorise as wierd. ... Maybe the way spellings morph between what I'll have to call European English and American English? How does it happen?

What color was the last piece of food you ate?
I was going to describe the beautiful, healthy dinner I had with my friend, C, before we went out to see a movie this evening, but the truth is I had two chocolate-dipped flakemeal biscuits with coffee a couple of hours ago, and they were brown-and-beige.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy being alone?
In fact, I'm perfectly happy in my own company, so I'm probably 10 when I am alone, and 10 when I'm with people that I've chosen to be with. I love being able to organise my time and my space to suit myself most of the time, and that's how my life is at the moment.

Main Course
Fill in the blank: I will _________ vote for ___________ in _______.
I can't figure this one out. I think it applies to Americans. Or... "I will never vote for nuclear power in Ireland"?

Describe your sleeping habits.
I sleep in the middle of a double-bed, with two pillows, Egyptian cotton sheets, a lightweight duvet, and if the night is very cold, a crocheted afghan spread over the duvet. I sleep about 7 hours at night, but often (2 or 3 days a week) have an extended and very pleasant afternoon nap on the living-room couch, with gentle music playing, and snuggled in my favourite mohair or chenille throw.

You will even find differences in the way Americans and Canadians spell some words, like "center" vs "centre".

My post is here. Happy feasting!

This week's New Scientist has an article in it about recalling in detail your most recent meal as an aid to weight loss.

Here is the bit they make public.

I always enjoy your feasts. I've always wondered how our English spelling came to differ, too - as well as the meaning of some words, such as biscuits (which is a type of roll, here - while the biscuits that you ate, are what we call a 'cookie,' here - I don't know what a 'cookie' might mean in European English - a chef, maybe?)
It can be a little confusing at times - but I'm glad our language usage is as close as it is, so I can enjoy your feasts!

I certainly wish I could answer the dessert the way you did! I do not do sleep well these days!

Have a great weekend and come join my feast if you can:

Another chocolate person. I love it. Great feast.

I'm pretty sure the main course IS meant for Americans (when I was contemplating doing the feast this week, I thought I'd write "I will definitely not vote for a Republican in November").

I particularly like your salad! I'm the same way--as long as it's freely chosen, I'm happy either way. But it can't be forced.

I'm sure you have good dreams with such sleeping habits!

Welcome to party at my feast ::here::
Have a great weekend!

Do teachers realize the long-lasting impact of cruel or unkind words and actions? My 12th grade English teacher lauged at me, in class, in front of the other students, for misusing the word aphrodisiac in a term paper. (I was a very naive 17-year-old.) How that smarted!

I'm glad you reclaimed your idealism.

And speaking of weird, Miss Kester was extremely weird - all the kids thought so.
