Friday Feast

What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?

My middle name is Sandra. It's ok. I have no problem with my middle name. Changing your name is such a monumental pain in the ass so no, I would never change it.

If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?

This is a silly question. I hate buying clothes and I have never even given a thought to making them. If I had to design them I guess I would say long sleeves because that is the most practical year round garb here. Darker colors so that the blood, seal oil and fish gut stains don't show. Rugged fabric so I don't have to go through the agony of picking out new clothes and buying them that often.

What is your least favorite chore, and why?

I dislike all chores pretty equally...but for some reason I really hate putting folded clothes away. I don't mind washing them and folding them but there is just something about putting them away that I just don't like.

Main Course
What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?

I would have to say heights. Funny, when I was a kid I wasn’t afraid of heights. I would climb trees and ladders and play in the hay loft with not even a thought of falling. Not anymore. No ladders, no ledges, no steep hills beyond a certain height. I can’t even go on the escalator on the 5th Avenue mall in Anchorage because of the open architecture. I do ok on escalators with walls on either side…as long as the handrail isn’t moving faster than the stairs! Glass elevators make me cringe. I even start to swoon when watching movies where people are hanging from the edge of a building. The older I get the worse it is.

The weirdest thing about my fear of heights is that is does not pertain to air travel. Small planes, medium planes, big jets, they are all no problem. I can look out the window at any altitude and have no fear of heights…..go figure. It’s a good thing though considering the thousands of miles I fly every year.

Where are you sitting right now? Name 3 things you can see at this moment.

I'm sitting at the computer desk in the "dining room" which is more like the dining nook. Geez I can see a hundred things.....most of which is quite boring and ordinary. It's hard to pick three? Ummm....1. A bottle of Cantu Shea Butter Super Shine Hair Silk.
2. My iPod 3. Two pairs of my son's outgrown mukluks hanging on the wall.

I can relate to the fear of heights not being a problem on a plane or anything like that. I remember when we went on the cross channel ferry to France, those are huge tall things, like cruise ships.
And as long as I looked OUT, across the ocean I did not have a problem with how high up the deck was. The only time it became a problem was when I look straight down to see just how far it was and saw where the boat met the water.

bHappy Friday. I don't mind putting the clothes away, it's taking the time to fold them I hate. Maybe we should trade jobs? :-)

I'll be back. It will be interesting to learn more about life in the frozen north.

Yay! Finally! Someone else who doesn't like to shop for clothes. I'm an amazon woman so trying to find anything long enough is a NIGHTMARE! I would rather clean a bathroom than shop for clothes.

Now THAT'S bad. lol
