Fridays Feast #175

Appetizer: What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?
Officially, my middle name is Lopez, my mother's maiden name. Everyone in the Philippines does this and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Soup: If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?
I would probably lean towards anything neutral, simple, classic and clean.

Salad: What is your least favorite chore, and why?
Laundry is the bane of my existence -- it just never ends.

Main Course: What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?
We had some thunderstorms recently, and I surprised myself by instinctively stiffening up and covering my ears as soon as I saw the lightning, no matter how hard I tried not to, no matter how I knew that my scared kids were watching me and expecting me to comfort them. I just couldn't stop my hands from flying up to my ears. And it wasn't even a bad thunderstorm. It must be from the thunderstorms we had in Manila when I was a kid, really terrifying, earsplitting cracks of thunder following lightning that made night seem like day. However, I would say that my worst fear would be something really bad happening to anyone in my family. Compared to that, I'll take thunderstorms every minute of the day.

Dessert: Where are you sitting right now? Name 3 things you can see at this moment.
I'm sitting in front of my computer, and I can see the screen, my new ipod, and my husband.

I can understand your fear of thunderstorms. We once had a very bad storm it had never happened before 200 km/h ! I thought the house would fly away two of our trees fell on the street and since then I am not comfortable when it is even windy !

Great feast. When I was a little kid, Mom & us kids used to gather in the 'sun porch' where there was lots of windows, and watch the lightening storms. Where we lived at the time there was 'sheet lightening' and when it came the whole area would be lighted up bright as day, only it was blueish. We loved it and we'd count the seconds until the thunder came, so we could tell exactly how close the lightening was to us.

Agree with your soup.

Laundry is definitely a never-ending chore. Clean clothes smell so good though! Love the fabric softener.

My feast is up.

Interesting how instinctively you respond to storms. They are a force of nature, after all. Perhaps your Main Course is the most natural of all. And, boy, do we ever have the same Salad! (Thanks for visiting my feast.)
