Friday Feast

What is your favorite beverage?
My favorite hot beverage is coffee with hazlenut creamer and splenda. My favorite cold beverage is sugar-free Red Bull or a Vanilla Coke from Sonic.

Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or at work.
Laptop, printer and mouse of course. Actually, those are a given. There are also many CD's, recording and firewire thingamadillys(hubby's) and my vanilla coke from Sonic($1.07 for a large if you get there by 10AM).

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?
I think I am very honest(about a 9.7), but not to the point of hurting someone's feelings. I would never say I don't like your haircut or your outfit if asked. I may however change the subject quickly. I love honesty in marriage and friendships, but I love a little fibbing when it comes to Santa and the Easter bunny. Yes, I do believe!

Main Course
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?
It would be Refugio, Texas. It is pronounced so many different ways that it makes me wonder who is actually right. I would name it Halfway, Texas because it is halfway between Corpus and my hometown of Victoria-much easier to say!

What stresses you out? What calms you down?
Trying something new for the first time. For instance going to a new doctor, speaking in front of people I don't know, and deciding what to do with my hair when I am sick of the style. What calms me down is reading God's word and focusing on His Truth. It also helps calm me when my husband makes me laugh, or when I dance around silly with the kids.

To participate in Friday's Feast, go here.

I would agree with that dessert..I dont like change and hate doing new things

Barb said...

I agree with your dessert, too. Nothing stresses me as much as learning something new, especially on the computer. I always master it and then I feel ridiculous, but when I'm looking at something I don't know how to do, I break out in a sweat!

Susanne said...

Yum on the coffee except I like the Southern Butter Pecan creamer and the real white stuff for me! :v)

Learning new things on the computer is a stretch for me. That always makes me stress. I like your dancing with the kids to get rid of stress.

I love your answers - they tell a little more about who you are. I agree about doing something new for the first time. I was so shy as a child and think I've gotten over it until I'm in a new situation. Then I feel like a little girl again.
Have a good weekend.

I'm right there with you on the new doctor/new hairdo thing.

And, I've been known to do the funky chicken with my kids (much to their embarassment...)

I agree about the "fibbing". There are ways to work around certain topics.
And you're so right about the stress of talking to a hairstylist - ah! I was such an emotional mess when I finally found one I've liked for the past year!
And, yes, a loving hubby and being a kid with kids is awesome!

Susie, love all your answers, and going to a new doctor is the worst. Nice to know you are honest to a point...hehe! Me too! Although, now I will tell someone if there is something embarrassing I think they should know like having tp stuck to their foot, and so forth! :)

Hey Sus, I TOTALLY agree with Refugio! Mind boggling!
By the way ladies...you HAVE to try a Route 44 CHOCOLATE Cherry Coke at Sonic. Super delicious and terribly addictive. Love Sonic!
