Friday's Feast!!!

Oooh, I remembered it was Friday and that I said I'd start participating in the Friday's Feast meme thingie that Stephanie does. Here goes:

Appetizer: Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.

Fury was a pillow kind of thing with a very large plastic horse head, supposedly the head of "Fury," a horse on a television show. I loved horses. (My other childhood toy memory is "Hee Haw," whom I believed was a stuffed horse, but apparently was really a stuffed giraffe. I carried that with me day and night as a toddler.) Anyway, Fury was wonderful. You could sit on his pillow section, which had the saddle printed on it, plus pillow feet and a yarn-ish tail, and ride him all day, never falling off! I am told I always sat on Fury to watch television (Lassie and Fury being my faves). I have photos of me in a cowboy hat riding Fury at about age 3.

Soup: On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?

10. I would even venture to suggest I am overly observant. My son Beccano is like this, too. We spot all sorts of interesting things/distractions wherever we go, so hiking with us is slow. I notice details, patterns and groupings in everything I look at. And I am always getting a lot of subtle visual cues when I interact with people. It probably helps that I have some other senses kicking in that up the observant thing. I have often wished to be less observant.

Salad: Where would you rather be at this very moment?
At a knitting camp by a lake, or in a small cabin with Lee, by a lake, knitting. It depends on whether I want to bond with fellow knitters or my partner, I guess.

Main Course: When was the last time you learned something new?

I think we're always learning something new. Today I was learning a new piece of software to document at work. I learn new software every day. And vocabulary! And things about how the world works (or doesn't).

Dessert: Fill in the blank: I have ____________ but I haven’t ____________.

I have studied Japanese for many years but I haven't ever been to Japan.

There, festive.

That was fun, eh? So, do you have a desire to travel to Japan sometime?

Ya know, not really. I studied enough of the culture to know that at least in this life, I don't fit in with it very well. Maybe I did at some other point. :-)
