Friday fill-ins

Friday Fill-ins

1. The last meal I had at a restaurant was spinach pie and rice at our favorite little Greek restaurant. They know us so well in there that we don't even have to ask for lemon in our water!

2. Onions are something I intensely dislike. Onions are not food.

3. The full moon is one of my few objects of worship. I always tell people that I'm a Jewish agnostic who worships the moon. Lunar eclipses bring me back to ancient times, when people feared that the gods were eating the moon; I have the same joy when it reappears as they must have had.

4. "I'll wait on line"is one of my favorite local expressions. Almost everyone except Long Islanders waits "in line."

5. Sometimes it's best to know, really really know, your limits.

6. The X-Files "I want to believe" is the best movie I've seen (in a theatre) so far this year!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to reading my mail, tomorrow my plans include writing several letters, and Sunday, I want to work on my Peace Shawl with knitting buddies.

Thanks for playing, hope you have fun this weekend :-)

Heresy! Onions are joyous unto my soul!

As a Cancer, the Moon is crucial to my wellbeing!
Um...I love onions, but raw? They don't love me!

Bridget said...

We will have to agree to disagree - I love onions!

But the Greek meal sounds perfect!

Hope to get to see you on Sunday, I haven't gone in months!

PS, Blogger doesn't play nice therefore I can't use my old blog anymore. This is my new one and I intend on actually updating it!

Onion lovers unite!

Aunt Kathy said...

Yep, me too, ONIONS are great. My grandma ate them like apples and never had a cold, ever. Coincidence? I think not.

They are especially good under a full moon or during a lunar eclipse, LOL

Onions are only good as onion rings, which I highly suspect has more to do with the fried batter aspect of it, rather than the onion. Raw onions should be banned. We moon-worshippers must not be eclipsed by the Pro-Onion Brigade;)!

Jennifer said...

I couldn't agree more with knowing one's limits. I struggle with that one a lot.

Clarence said...

Really, The X-Files was a good one to see? Must remember that if we get back to the cinema anytime soon. I don't love onions, in fact, I quite hate them, but will tolerate them in some kind of cooked meal. As long as they are chopped up extra small.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy to hear you liked the X-Files...that is one that I've been wanting to see.
#5 is definitely true! I need to remind myself of that often these days!

Paula said...

LOL! Onions are one of my favorite foods! But beets are my enemy.
I am having a learning experience with number five on the list this week!
