Friday's Feast

I thought I'd take a stab at today's Friday's Feast. You know, because it's Friday and all.

What sound, other than the normal ringing, would you like your telephone to make?

Describe your usual disposition in meteorological terms (partly cloudy, sunny, stormy, etc.).

What specific subject do you feel you know better than any other subjects?

Main Course
Imagine you were given the ability to remember everything you read for one entire day. Which books/magazines/newspapers would you choose to read?

If a popular candy maker contacted you to create their next confection, what would it be like and what would you name it?

Appetizer: A pleasant low-pitched beep would be fine for me. I don't really care for ringtones--although I do have to say that the SpongeBob ringtone I had at my last job was pretty fun. "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"

Soup: Calm.

Salad: Guh. Model-building, maybe. Video games. Games in general. The all-encompassing "Trivia," perhaps. That's not to say I'm an expert at any of these things, just that I know more about them than I do about, say nookyalur physics.

Main Course: Remember or understand? The one is no good without the other. Facetiously, I would like to read and remember tomorrow's lottery numbers. I suppose a book on composition and arranging, assuming here that I would have to do more than flip through the pages and skim all of the words. There's only so much a person can read in 24 hours. The real problem with remembering everything is that knowing facts isn't the same as being able to apply them.

Dessert: The perfect candy already exists, and it is called Take 5. It's tough to invent a new candy, because it seems like all of the ideas in that area that are worth having have been had (famous last words). I suppose I would try to make a five-spice candy, kind of like five-spice chocolate cake. I'm thinking of a dark chocolate shell around a milk-chocolate and five-spice center of some kind, either liquid or buttercream.


  • Telephone sound: A flute playing.

    Usual disposition: Cloudy.

    Specific subject: Um. Hmmm. I honestly don't know.

    Remember everything: I would read a good art history survey textbook and try to get back some of the details I've lost.

    Dessert: The perfect candy *does* already exist, but it is *not* Take 5, it is See's milk and dark chocolate caramels.
