Famine and Feast

My favorite musical instrument

Nothing but the feast:

Appetizer: On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how much do you like your own handwriting?
As an art form, about an 8. People often compliment me on how good it looks—until they have to read it. So as a practical means of communication, about a 2. I can’t even read it all of the time.
Soup: Do you prefer baths or showers?
For the daily grind, I prefer showers. A bath leaves me feeling a bit scummy. But when I have time, my real preference is a long, soaking bath followed by a shower. Nothing makes me feel cleaner than that combination
Salad: What was the last bad movie you watched?
A Force of One. This is a 1970s Chuck Norris classic. Beccano and I watched it one Saturday afternoon while Suna was knitting. Or rather, Beccano watched it, and I watched parts. Since I do most of my movie watching at home, I don’t have to (and often can’t make myself) sit through a bad one.
Main Course: Name something you are addicted to and describe how it affects your life.
Music. If I go too long without music, I get really cranky. It’s like withdrawal without the pain and vomiting.
Dessert: Which instrument is your favorite to listen to?
Anything that’s played well. It’s not the instrument so much as the instrumentalist. I suspect Yo Yo Ma would sound awesome on a brand new cello—maybe not as good as his million-dollar antique, but still good enough to make you cry.
