This week, I will attempt to seriously answer the questions normal Americans usually cast no more than a passing comment at.
1) “Come here often?”
(assuming this happens at my local pub): "Every Sunday and Wednesday when I can afford it. This place is my Cheers!"
(Nod to Chatterbox Pub in Highland Park - karaoke twice a week from 8:30pm to 12:30 or whenever the manager asks us to leave.)
2) “What’s new?”
Not much, honestly. Still attending karaoke every week, still living with a couple and their daughter, still making stuff with yarn and fabric. I'll be creating a few costumes for Urban Spectrum Theatre's dance and fashion production of "Alice in Wonderland"! I'm excited about it. The looks I'm working on will be on sale after the production, which is happening the weekend before the "Destination: Outer Space" premieres!
(No worries, blog followers! I'll keep you posted and let you know more in May!)
3) “[insert your recent weather condition here] enough for ya?”
Oh, we had a warm week! I had my window open until last night when everything froze. This is great! It means the maple trees are running, and I'll have a quart of fresh syrup by Easter!
4) “How’s it hangin?”
Provided no one has knocked it down again? Well. I hope.
5) “How ’bout them [insert local sports team here]?”
Well, the Wild are doing okay, and the Twins are still in spring training. My sports brain turns "off" during March to avoid March Madness.
There you have it! Another week, another 5.
