Friday's Feast

It's a late evening but yet I just ate dinner edition of Friday's Feast. I sure hope these questions aren't too tough...

Appetizer: What was your first "real" job?
As opposed to my several "fake" jobs? Or "unreal" jobs? Actually, looking back on things, several of them seemed very "unreal" but I suppose that is a story for another day. My first "real" job I procured on my first "real" day of being 16 "real" years old. I worked in a dining room in a retirement center. It was an enormous headache trying to get 100 old people seated in the dining room (IN THEIR SPOT), placing orders, serving food, and then kicking them out and reseting so you can do it for the next group in one hour flat. So where did I work next? At the movies, where every 2.5 hours you have to get 325 people seated in the dark accompanied by their wombo double-butter corns, large orange sodas and Jr. Mints.

Soup: Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?
Ocean. Mountain. Practice room. Bathroom. Someplace where there is peace and quiet, music, or a good book.

Salad: Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when...
I am embarrassed when I can't remember someone's name. Which is All.The.Time.

Main Course: What values did your parents instill in you?
x=12, y=6
That, and you will only need the formula for slope for math class.

Dessert: Name Three Fads from Your Teenage Years?
This is hardly fair, because recognizing fads depends on recognizing what is hip and trendy in today's world. And honestly, hip and trendy and GreenTuna do not go together at all. So, trying to thinking of anything around that time eras, I might guess:
  1. Pet Rocks
  2. Bell-Bottom Pants
  3. Barry Manilow
Lord, it's amazing any of us managed to survive.

Yay for 70s Bell-Bottom Pants and - never growing old - Barry Manilow!
(I didn't have a Pet Rock though)
