AppetizerWhat time do you usually wake up each day? If you could choose your wake-up time, when would it be?I usually get up at 6 a.m. daily, though of late for some reason I keep waking up without the alarm at 5:45 a.m. If I could choose a time to wake-up, it'd be 7 or 7:30 a.m.
SoupWhen was the last time you bought groceries? What store did you go to? Name 3 things you purchased.Last Saturday. I went to Super Wal-Mart. I got bread, bananas and apples.
SaladHow many books have you read so far this year? Which was your favorite and why?I'm a voracious reader. This year I've read 57 or 58 books, so for. My favorite--wow, that's a good question. The books I've enjoyed the most so far this year are Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas and With No One as Witness by Elizabeth George. With No One as Witness was great because I love the Lynley and Havers series and it was a return to greatness of the early books. It was also one that I could get lost in for hours at a time. Rats Saw God is by Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars and the protagonist who tells us the story just really resonanted with me.
Main CourseWhat is something you consider to be very elegant? In particular, what about that item/place/person conjures up the feeling of elegance?For my grandparent's 50th anniversary, the family went out to this extremely fancy inn in the Tidewater area of Virginia (which I could recall the name now..it will come to me later!) We were served courses and between each course, the waiters would come and sweep the crumbs off the table for you. I had venison for my meal and it was incredible. The whole experience was elegant because we all got dressed up, went to a fancy place with waiters who hovered in the background but were never conspicious and because we were celebrating my grandparent's anniversary. A great family memory.
DessertWho taught you how to drive?My dad.
