OK One of These Questions Was Actually Disturbing ...

Kathy has a set of questions for us today - but in a little bit of a switch, she has questions contributed by others, which is a whole 'nother set of fun.  So I decided to play along.

What fear have you conquered? 

Hmm.  I guess in a sense, public speaking.  I still hate doing it, but can manage to accomplish it without making myself sick, while also being fairly coherent.

What's your favorite spicy food?

Oh I love spicy food!  What comes to mind immediately are Thai Drunken Noodles.  If they are on a menu, I'll always order them.

What's a color you never wear?

Yellow.  With my coloring, it's not pretty.  Too bad, because I think a soft yellow is such a pretty color.  If I do wear it at all, it's as an accessory, and always away from my face.

When sock knitters want a bigger needle project, what do you knit?

Usually hats.  The needles are bigger, but not big enough to be painful.

When did you last read Shakespeare?

Probably about ten years ago, before a trip to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Canada.  I've watched Shakespeare more recently, in the series "The Hollow Crown," which we enjoy.

Are you gregarious or solitary?

Solitary.  Though I can become gregarious with my family and close friends when the mood strikes.

What is your favorite cookie recipe and why?

I'd have to say basic chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin.  Because I nearly always have the ingredients on hand for one or the other of them.

Do you dip your PB and J in milk?

This is the one I find disturbing.  NO.  I cannot even fathom thinking to do this!  (This one is from Kathy's husband, and ... wow.)

Do you feel you are becoming a better knitter or have your skills leveled off?

I think I'm becoming a better knitter, albeit slowly, and in specific ways.  There are still a lot of things I don't quite "get" and/or that I need to work on in order to broaden my horizons.

When's the last time you broke a needle?

About two years ago, a tiny sock needle I was using broke when I was trying maneuver stitches in a SSK.  Fortnuately, only a bit broke off, so The Tim sanded down the broken end and I can still use it.

What about you?  Do any of these questions speak to you?  Let me know in the comments, or play along!

I've never heard of dunking a PBJ in milk either. I can't imagine the taste or texture.

Kym said...

Wow. Dunking a PBJ in milk? Nope. Not this gal. (Alhtough I can't imagine eating a PBJ without a glass of milk to DRINK!) XO

The PB&J thing sounds to me like Kathy's husband is looking for allies in telling his wife his habit isn't weird.

Now, I can see dipping cookies in milk (though I don't do it myself)- my own preference is to dip ginger snaps in tea. I'll do it with chocolate chip or spice cookies too. It works better if the cookies are frozen (which, since the batch makes way more than I should be eating in one sitting are happily what I do!)

My favorites- in addition to the three mentioned above, I love oatmeal raisin cookies and my grandmother's chocolate molasses gingerbread, which are eaten slathered with vanilla frosting. (I can't have just one favorite!)

Acckkkkkkk! PB&J in milk?????? WHO DOES THAT??? Oh, I bet Troy does! LOL

I would never let anything be dunked in my milk. I can STAND sludge in my glass.

Ewww....you are so right that dunking thing is just gross. I hate public speaking too which is odd because I was a teacher for so many years and I was always performing in front of a crowd. I hated Parent's Day and Back to School Night. Stuff of nightmares.

Nance said...

Add me to the list of those who have never heard of or seen anyone dunk a PBJ in...well, anything, really. I don't even dunk my grilled cheese into my tomato soup.

Come to think of it, I guess I'm not a Dunker overall.

I'm pretty sure dunking a PB&J into a glass of milk would totally ruin it and the milk so that needs to stop. PB&J's don't deserve to be disrespected like that. Now if you want to dunk a graham cracker in milk I'm all in. ;-)

Bridget....Fireman's habit had absolutley NO likes!! hahahaha
Thanks for playing along! Public speaking to large crowds gets to me. I can read to large crowds as I was a reader in church as a teen. But to get up and speak on my own....my knees shake!
