Friday's Feast, January 12th

What comes to mind when you see the color orange?
If it is burnt orange, I think about UT (Texas). That's a rival school of Texas A&M, one of my colleges. So that is a repulsive feeling.
If it is bright orange, I think of UT (Tennessee). That was my parents' rival school, and while the feeling is not as strong, I still feel repulsed a bit.
On the other hand, if it's a bright orange marker in a multicolor collection, it's a feeling of completeness. I can now make a beautiful rainbow. ohm . . .ohm . . .

Did you ever get in trouble while you were in school? If so, what was it for?
I really didn't get in trouble much. Getting in trouble was one of my greatest fears. (Is?) I did get licks (paddle spankings!) twice in second grade (1978-1979). This is the age my daughter is right now. Once it was because my whole table was having a book fight, and we were hitting our books together in the middle of the table when the teacher walked in the room. The other time, a dog ran in our building and the whole class chased it back outside. Mrs. Smith lined up the whole class in the hall and gave us each a lick.

Which topping(s) make up your perfect pizza?
Canadian bacon, mushrooms, extra cheese, maybe bell peppers and onions (but I pick those two off and just leave the nice flavor on the cheese).

Main Course
Do you believe in UFOs/aliens/etc.? Why or why not?
I always say it's a possibility. My husband would take the opposite position. I say why not? I do not understand why it's a religious conflict----God can make this giant universe however he wants, and he does NOT have to tell us about everything. he didn't, I believe!

Plus, I am optimistic about stuff like this. I have always loved Star Wars and Star Trek, and I think it would be great to have a variety of created beings in the universe, getting along and learning about different ways of surviving in different types of worlds. (That's why Anthropology was my minor in college!)

What color is your bedspread/comforter/quilt?
Blue and white----a sort of Toile pattern with flowers.

  • Your feast was wonderful. I am completely satisfied.
    You would not be able to give a child a lick in school now. The parents would sue and you would be put in jail!!
    Thanks for coming by my blog and I hope you will come back. Have a great weekend.

  • I like your feast thing too. I guess I never knew you got a lick. HOrn Lake I think is what made me hate school so much as a child. I remember getting licks as a 1st grader and never really knowing why. And then feeling very unjust about the entire way I was treated.
    Anyway... :-)
    I really enjoy your blog(s).

  • I can't imagine lining an entire classroom of students up and paddling everyone for something like that! Amazing...even for the dates you mentioned.

    And I love your description of brother lived in College Station for a while.

  • Thanks for sharing your feast. Oh my, I've never received a 'lick' from my teacher before. I don't think it was allowed in our school.

    I certainly love those ingredients ... my kind of pizza.

    Take care!

  • Yeah, I've never understood why the whole alien thing is a religious issue. God can do whatever He want, right? So what's immoral if we think we're not the "center of the universe"? ;-)
