Friday's Feast

It's still Friday, which means there is still time for Friday's Feast!

Appetizer: What job would you definitely NOT want to have?
Lightbulb replacer for the Mackinac Bridge.

Soup: Oprah calls and wants you to be on her show.
What would that day's show be about?

Today on Oprah -- Forget Dr. Phil! There's a new fish in town, and GreenTuna dishes all without a new book, southern accent or cranky granny catch phrases. Don't Get Real. Get Tuna.

Salad: Name Three Vegetables You Eat on a Regular Basis
If I have to name only three vegetables, I'd have a much easier time listing three I never eat (okra, turnips and eggplant). If we are talking vegetables I eat on a regular basis, you'd have to go with vegetable categories:
All things green. (peas, broccoli, asparagus)
All things bean. (lima, green, kidney, black, pinto, garbonzo)
All things everything else. (cucumbers, peppers, lettuce, romaine, carrots, cauliflower, corn, beets, celery...)

Main Course: If you were commissioned rename your hometown, what would you call it?
All the witty Mitten names are already taken: Paradise, Hell, Christmas, Vulcan, Norway, Ishpeming, Ypsilanti... For lack of anything else, now that the students are gone, I guess I'd call it Peaceful.

Dessert: If you had a personal assistant, what kind of tasks would you have them do?
Think of a better name for my hometown, because that answer really stunk.
Keep my calendar.
Fetch me fizzy brown diet drinks.
Fold my socks.

Hey! What's wrong with "Norway"? At least it's not Sweden!

Me, I live in a town which - directly translated into English - would be named "Hen Falls". How's that for a silly name?
