Friday's Feast #169

Appetizer
What was your first “real” job?

In my junior year in high school I worked at THE MALL. I worked at a Waldenbooks bookstore. It was a good job except for the nazi boss I had. She would sneak in on Sundays to see if we were breaking the rules. No trust.....or much respect. I think I lasted 3 months there. My next job, at another mall, was a relief. I worked at Pixy Portrait Studio in JCPenneys and I got to take portraits of children. We only photographed children. Very fun people to work for and fun work....making kids smile. Perfect job for me. (I just had a revelation...or is that an epiphany?) hmmmmm

Soup
Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?

My sister's (and BIL's..lol) cabin, a secluded place in the woods. And it would be winter, during a snowstorm....or in summer during the monsoon season. Weather inspires me....as long as I am inside just looking at it.

Salad
Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

......I feel like I"ve done the wrong thing or said something stupid. It could be any hour of the day. I do a lot of embarrassing things....and I have embarrassing children sometimes. (well I think that is paybacks for when I was a kid) I'm even somewhat embarrassed by this question.

Main Course
What values did your parents instill in you?

Compassion for the underdog, respect, honesty, love of God and home.



Dessert
Name 3 fads from your teenage years.


Oh my! The seventies were full of fads.

~Clackers....glass balls on the ends of a string with a metal washer in the middle of the string and you hold the washer and raise the thing up and down until the ends are 'clacking' away in a butterfly-ish pattern. You could get those pups going so fast that you couldn't see the balls anymore. They were banned at my school after several incidents of breakage and flying broken glass balls.

~Pogo sticks....I never could do it. It's one of my embarrassments.

~Clothing: track shoes, cut off jean shorts like Daisy Duke wears, bell bottomed hip huggers, smock blouses, peasant tops, tie dye anything, platform shoes (for guys or girls), Levi 501 button up jeans (I loved those), earth shoes, berets, bandanas, knee socks, maxi skirts, vests, gauzy shirts.

I used to work at "kinderphoto" which was a children's photo place in the mall too! :-)

I worked at a Claire's Boutique (cheap jewelry store) and I'm the envy of all my pre-teen nieces because of it. You had to wear $50 worth of stuff so I looked like Mr. T. :)
