A Post A Day: Friday's Feast

July 27, 2007 Posted by Vaire

Another Friday, another Friday's Feast.

Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.

I remember quite a few, but there is one that was very special. Her name is Aime and she is a small baby doll.

I used to carry her to school until one day she was stolen and I was devastated. Couple weeks later she re-appeared on my desk. Oh the joy! I never took her to school again, but kept her around even during my teenage years. To avoid further damage I had to put her to a drawer when Kurri was teething and used her legs as a chew toy. Currently she is in a memory box I took with me to Sweden, waiting to be repaired. I have a leg donor that my Mum found some years ago, but I haven't dared to perform the operation.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?

Umm... that depends on if I'm paying attention or not. Walking on the street, thinking up a new knitting design, I'm practically oblivious to what's happening. I pay attention to cars and crowd navigation, but that's about it. I guess I'd give myself a 3.

Where would you rather be at this very moment?

At home, having a vacation, knitting.

Main Course
When was the last time you learned something new?

Today. I'm constantly learning new things in this new job.

Fill in the blank: I have ____________ but I haven’t ____________.

I have seriously considered ordering from Ekolådan but I haven't dared to do so yet because I am wary of giving my address and the house door code on the web. I saw one of their boxes in our apartment house stairway, so I might give them a try after all.

In my opinion, ecologcal / organic / green produce simply tastes better. Another difference between Ireland and Sweden is that green veggies and fruits were clearly labeled and widely available in Dublin. The grocery stores in our area in Stockholm haven't got a single green label on anything fresh. There probably are stores that sell green produce, but if they are not accessible without a car, or are a long bus ride away, Ekolådan is the way to go.
