December 1 Fridays Feast

I am back after taking a few weeks off.

Appetizer What is your favorite carnival/amusement park ride? I love the roller coasters, especially the Volcano at Kings Dominion.

Soup How do you react in uncomfortable social situations? Social situations in general make me uncomfortable. I squirm around. What comes to mind is a funeral I attended two years ago almost to the day. A dear friend of the family passed away and in the middle of the funeral, one of her sons got up and gave a eulogy that said basically, "My mom died to leave us money." He said variations of the same for 35 minutes.

Salad On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy discussing deep, philosophical topics? An 8. It depends on the topic and the people I am discussing it with. I don't mind disagreements, but I hate having my beliefs ridiculed. Besides, I believe there are some things you don't talk about in public.

Main Course Did you get a flu shot this year? If not, do you plan to? I have already gotten it. I had the flu twice last year, or at least had a recurrence of the flu after I thought I had gotten rid of it. I was the second person to go get the shot this year.

Dessert Approximately how many hours per week do you spend watching television? Too many. I am behind on some of the shows I watch, then my wife and I watch a lot of shows on DVD.
