Default Today's Questions - Wednesday August 28, 2012

Mornin' all!

My Internet was out briefly yesterday morning, which reminded me that it has gone out three of the Wednesdays since I started doing the QotD! I have two alarms set to remind me to post the Question, so if I don't show up some morning, I'm probably just waiting for the Cable to come back on. Normally I try to get the Q up before 7:00 AM Central Time.

Today's Question(s):

Today's Question(s):
When it comes to public festivals of interest to you (car shows, craft shows, etc.), are you:
an organizer - I used to be. Many years ago I worked for the US Trade Center in Sydney which organised trade shows of US products for Australian businesses. It was my job to coordinate all the exhibitors and organise their exhibition spaces.
a volunteer
a participant (exhibitor, vendor, etc.)
a spectator - these days, mostly this.

Just for Fun:
Have you ever just stood in the rain, enjoying it in spite of yourself? Once or twice, but only in tropical climates where the torrential rain is like a lovely warm shower!

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite flavor combination?
Gosh, too many to single out just one. Cheese and onion; roast beef and mustard; roast pork and apple sauce... lots of different favourite combos!

Thanks PatsCats.

Happy Hump Day to all.

Today's Question(s):
When it comes to public festivals of interest to you (car shows, craft shows, etc.), are you:

an organizer -
a volunteer > I've volunteered on a few occasions, ya know getting set-up and some clean up after the fact. A school public event.
a participant (exhibitor, vendor, etc.)
a spectator > Most of the time.

Just for Fun:
Have you ever just stood in the rain, enjoying it in spite of yourself? Sure, the first few drops or so never in a torrential downpour though.

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite flavor combination?
When I go to Sweet Frog [frozen yogurt place], depending on what they have available, I really like the chocolate and peanut butter combo or the chocolate and cappuccino combo. Chocolate and mint - like York peppermint patty. Steak and onion - there were some potato chips from Herrs that had that and they were good. Haven't seen them lately. Triscuts - Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil. Orville Redenbacher has the small packs that are natural salt and lime. We pop those everyonce in a while. Cinnamon and vanilla. Pistachio and almond. Banana and rum. Coconut and dark chocolate. Also, vanilla and almond, vanilla, caramel and pumpkin and/or ginger. Sure glad I had breakfast already.

Usually the spectator. I hate to say I'm too lazy to do any of the real work, but I have to be honest with you all.
Just for Fun:
Have you ever just stood in the rain, enjoying it in spite of yourself? Often at work. I'm outside when it starts raining and I get soaked at the least opportune time. After that point, I say to myself, 'what the heck, I'm already soaked, a little more rain wont hurt me.' ...then I get a cold or something

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite flavor combination? Slightly biased towards Strawberry-Kiwi. My mom would always make that as a juice mix as kid. I still can taste it now.
