Friday Feast

I've never participated in the Friday Feast, but not because I have anything against it . . . . I just don't think of it! Fresh Girl participates every week though, and today's appetizer question was too good not to answer this time. So here goes . . . my first Friday Feast.

Make up a word and give us its definition.

Dogbread: My family made up this word when I was little, so long ago that I can't remember not having it in my vocabulary. No one ever liked eating the end of the loaf of bread, so we always gave it to the dog. Thus, "dogbread" was born. Skeeter and the children even use the term. And they like the dogbread, so they don't give it to the dogs!

What is currently your favorite song?

Despite all of the Christmas tunes running through my head, I think my current favorite is an old hymn called "I Love to Tell the Story." I sing it to Sass at night and to settle her when she's upset, and she's taken to singing it. All the time. She serenaded everyone at Backyard Burger tonight. She may sing loudly and at inappropriate times, but it's still so sweet to hear her little voice.

What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year?

Perfume. I've been wearing the same two perfumes for the last 15 years -- Sung in the winter; Jessica McClintock in the summer. I want something new. I think I've decided on Juicy Couture. I've been stalking the perfume ladies, and that's the one fragrance I've gone back to again and again. The other front runner is Burberry Weekend, but I think that Juicy has won.

Main Course
Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life.

Old Spice. It always reminds me of my dad. Always. Especially when it's worn by someone who is very outdoorsy.

Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why?

I'm going to have to cop out on this one. The only television I watch regularly is Numbers. And Heroes, until it ended, and really, I only watched that because Skeeter wanted me to watch with him. I wasn't pleased with this season, and I would have dropped it.

If I may answer the TV question for you... Rita Cosby (that voice!), Paris Hilton (who cares?), Britney Spears (ditto), any celebrity under the age of 70 who has published a biography (again), anyone instigating a frivolous lawsuit (they shouldn't receive publicity for that stuff), anyone who uses gratuitous profanity (my kids might be in the room), anyone who cannot pronounce the word "nuclear" correctly (and yes that includes our dear president), Tom Brokaw (is it just me or does he always sound drunk?), Nancy Grace (she's so abrasive... like fingernails on a chalkboard), Larry King (creepy), and 90% of the people on reality shows (even if it's "reality," you know they're performing for the cameras). That's just off the top of my head. I guess you can see why I canceled our cable!

Yay for your first FF! I hope you went over to the FF site and announced you were playing, too -- if not, there's a link to it at the end of my FF.

Now... "Dogbread" is brilliant! I hate the end pieces, and I would so call them that, but our poor Jakey doesn't get them. It would be more appropriate for me to call them "Mombread." *g*

Love your "soup" -- that's a great song.

And I should have said Old Spice for my Main Course, dad doesn't wear it anymore, hasn't in a very long time, but when I was a little girl, I always loved to smell it on him. :)

I hope you'll do this again!

Aww Old Spice! My dad used to wear that too. But his favorite of mine was Canoe. Only he pronounced it Can-oh-ay. All French-like :)

My sister used to steal it and wear it herself. It smelled better on him.
