Friday's Feast and TWO(!) FFT's

For those of you who are long time readers, you know that I used to do a feature every Friday, before the advent of the Friday's Feast, called the FFT AKA Friday Field Trip, where I would take you to a new, different, fun website. Well, I am going to bring a couple in this week for fun that I did either last year or the year before. I hope you enjoy them. They're below the Friday's Feast

Appetizer
Name two things that made you smile this week.

Emily and some emails from someone who is becoming a very good and trusted friend.

Soup
Fill in the blank: Don't you hate it when ________?

Don't you hate it when you're in the shower and someone flushes the toilet or turnes on the hot water in a faucet without warning you first? You could either get scalded or frostbitten depending on which one.

Salad
When you can't go to sleep, what is your personal remedy to help yourself drift into Lullabyland?

Hmmmmm, since I have borderline chronic insomnia, my "remedies" don't always work - however, if you'd like to share some of yours in the comments section, I'd be much obliged.

Main Course
What is something about which you've always wondered but have not yet found a good answer?

Where does the other half of Emily's socks go when they are in the dryer? Why does it take a long time to get over someone? Why do I always seem to be most attracted to the unavailable guys?

Dessert
What is your favorite pasta dish?

I make the most amazing alfredo sauce so I like that with angelhair pasta, grilled shrimp (or chicken) and mushrooms all mixed together. I also have a very basic rotini pasta that is best served chilled. Rotini, diced ham, cubed sharp cheddar, cooked mushrooms and Zesty Italian dressing.
=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=

Yes, and now it has come to another FFT. Today we have two wonderful FFT's that do nothing but waste your time - in a really fun way!

So grab your brown bag lunch and hop on the bus (air conditioned with reclining seats and a clean bathroom of course).

For the women:
Are you looking for a ruggedly sensitive man? Someone who is good with his hands, loves children and is always happy to see you? Well look no further. The Brawnyman is here. This is a "promotion" that is going on at the Brawny site. They have a "rugged" outdoorsy man who does everything from complimenting you on your new haircut to understanding when you've just had "one of those days". It's HEE-LARRY-US! Just follow the link below to view the man that Brawny calls their Innocent Escapes Brawnyman. You will, at the very least, be able to get a laugh or ten out of it!

Get Your Own Brawnyman

This next FFT is for everyone and is actually a "go nowhere" field trip - one you can sit back and enjoy in the safety and comfort of Nic's Place.

"Are you tired of rhythm?"

Yes, my friends, it is the ever popular How To Dance Like A White Guy promotional video. A must have for every redneck home. It doesn't matter if you're from the North or South, rednecks are found everywhere.

So kick your feet up, pop the top to a cold one (soda that is) and get ready to have fun while learning the secrets of How to Dance Like A White Guy! Maybe you can pick up a few pointers before hand if you're going out this weekend!

Just press the start button and you're on your way to a learning whole new kind of dance to impress the other people on the dance floor.



I won't be posting Saturday b/c I will be out for St. Patrick's Day with MC and a mutual friend who is in town for SXSW! So Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Sláinte!

An Irish Blessing
May the saddest day of your future be no worse
Than the happiest day of your past.

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
