TinyTuna has so many posts saved to draft (mom's rule) that I need to catch up and clean out a bit, so this Friday Feast is a two-fer. I didn't look at her answers before I wrote mine, so it will be interesting to see how they match up.
Appetizer: What are you proud of?
Greentuna: Good Lord. Making it through another day? Not falling asleep, bashing my head into the keyboard and lapsing into a coma today at work? No. It must be finding (and wearing) clean and matching socks. Huzzah!
TinyTuna: Singing "On the Transmigration of Souls" with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
(Greentuna: She should be proud. They are doing amazing work. It makes my matching socks and no-coma Friday look pretty sad in comparison)
Soup: What is the best thing you've ever won as a prize?
Greentuna: Much better story: What is the WORST thing you've ever won as a prize. I have far more worst prize stories than best prize stories (which should give you a clue as to the nature of my very existence).
Worst Prize Number One: Once, I believe in middle school, there was some sort of school carnival type event. In the gym there was a large circle of chairs set up for a Cake Walk. This is where you walk around the chairs while music plays and when it stops you sit in the chair. Then somebody draws a number, and if you're sitting in that chair, you win a cake. Me? I won. Too bad I don't like cake.
Worst Prize Number Two: I did it again and won another one.
Worst Prize Number Three: Back in the olden days, as a bride to be, I ran around a local mall during the weekend bridal show and entered my name to win anything and everything I could. Lo and behold, I won! Although it wasn't a cake, it was equally lame and unnecessary. I won a rather expensive china bridal figurine (read: something I had to stare at and then dust). I held onto said figurine until a couple months after the wedding and then attempted a return. I scored the return and got ... dishes! So, it ended up not being such a horrible prize after all.
TinyTuna: A medal at Solo and Ensemble
(Greentuna: And she didn't even win a cake!)
Salad: Name Something You Do that is a Waste of Time
Greentuna: Oh, the irony of typing this question while at work....
TinyTuna: Watching Spongebob Squarepants
(Greentuna: Yep. That wins)
Main Course: In what year of your life did you change the most?
Greentuna: Last Saturday I ate a piece of cake and actually uttered, "hey, this is good." So maybe the answer is this year. Or not. It's only cake, after all.
TinyTuna: (Almost) When I'm thirteen!
(Greentuna: Let the record show that as of this writing, she is NOT having cake for her birthday. Well, she is have cake, but with "cheese" in front of it and with three different kinds of chocolate in it, under it, and on top of it)
Dessert: Where is a place you consider to be very tranquil?
Greentuna: Sunset, at the Atlantic ocean's edge. I'm ready now.
TinyTuna: Cape Hatteras
(Greentuna: Ahhhh. That's my kid)
