The Friday 5 -- Check The Link and Read Everyone Else.
What usually marks the middle of your day?
Lunch. Oh Yes, Lunch. Today was quite boring, soup and a roll and some peanut m&ms. I fancied something wonderful, but unfortunately, I work in Ar-Dross-An and the selection of Absolutely Wonderful places to eat are few and far between. I could go to Asda, and make something from scratch (not brilliant in a wee kitchen, shared by 13). There is a deli - but they have a major problem with their soup. For Italians, they have NO Idea - is all water with bits floating in it. Now I know you are going to say, "that is what soup is". But No. That is what My Soup is (or so my daughter tells me), Real Soup, has depth, consistency and a taste to define the rest of your day. They don't do that. Just water, with little flavour, and occassionally a piece of rice. The Cafe does soup - but it is out a tin, and don't particularly like tinned soup. I should really get off my arse and make soup honestly shouldn't I?
From whom (or to whom) was your most recent middle-of-the-night phone call?
Boy, I believe called me in the middle of the night to ask me for the number of a taxi company. He was trying to show me he was mature and sensible but probably knew that by phoning me to ask for a taxi, I would reason that since I was awake, I might as well get up and go fetch him myself. I'm glad I did. His mate K was paralytic, and I don't think a taxi driver would have appreciated him in his cab!
On what social, political, economic, or moral issue are you in the middle of the road?
Abortion. I'm right down there in the middle. I understand those women who petition for the rights of the foetus however barmy it may seem. I had a foetus who moved at 13 weeks and I felt it very very clearly (that Foetus is now 17 years old and very much alive, and so to reassure my daughter who nearly fainted when she read this, no I didn't actually have an abortion, I was just trying to make the point, that i believe that at 13 weeks the child growing in you is alive, but that I still understand that some people have to have an abortion), so to remove something from your body which is very obviously alive is going to be contentious. However, I also feel very strongly for those women who find themselves pregnant - poor birth control, mistake, rape, really really bad timing. They should have the choice. Having a baby is not just for Christmas. Most definitely.
How likely are you to give someone your middle finger?
Very Very Likely.
I'm always waving one or two fingers at someone. Mostly when I'm driving, so that they can't catch me.
But Am equally likely to give it to Wee-Devil because she winds me up at such lengths. Gullible, Yes that's me where Wee-Devil is concerned!
When were you last caught in the middle of a disagreement that really had nothing to do with you?
I try to stay out of disagreements - I don't like them and they don't do anything for my blood pressure. I can't remember the last time i was in the middle of one between me and anyone, and if I was, I probably couldn't mention it here, incase either of the parties seen it and realised I was talking about them! tee hee
