Today's Question(s):
Where is your favorite seat in the house?
The one right here in front of the computer! (Actually, it's getting rather uncomfortable due to its age - a new one is on the horizon.)

What is your favorite sandwich?
Not a big sandwich fan but I prefer them to be simple rather than jam-packed with several ingredients... so I'll go with peanut butter (hold the jelly)!

Who is your favorite well-known person?
I don't really have a favourite, but if I could meet just one well-known person (dead or alive), I would choose Ella Fitzgerald and I'd hope she'd sing for me!

What is your favorite thing to do when you've got a couple of hours of free time?
Chat on the phone with my best guy friend.

What is your favorite "old saying?"
Consider your glass half full, not half empty.

What does your favorite outfit look like?
It's a little black dress that I can no longer squeeze myself into!

Just for Fun:
Have you ever worn anything with sequins?
Yes, the little black dress that I can no longer wear!

Bonus Question:
What is the lowest price you can remember for a postage stamp?
I think it was fourpence (in English pounds in the early sixties). Maybe English Dave will remember better than me. Might even have been threepence.

Thanks PatsCats. Sorry I can't volunteer for QOTD next Wednesday. In fact I may need a volunteer myself for Tuesday (I'll know nearer the time).

Happy Hump Day to all.

Today's Question(s):

In the livingroom

What is your favorite sandwich?
Cheese steak. Not just any old cheese steak, but one from the Pickle Barrel Deli in Bozeman, Montana.

Who is your favorite well-known person?
If I was to pick one well-known person then other well-known persons would feel slighted. Next thing you know they would be picketing outside my house. That would lead to TV stations parking their trucks on my lawn while reporting on the protest. I do not want TV stations parking their trucks on my lawn. So I will pass on picking a favorite well-known person.

What is your favorite thing to do when you've got a couple of hours of free time?
Take a nap.

What is your favorite "old saying?"
What, me worry...Alfred E Neuman

What does your favorite outfit look like?
Looks like something Good Will threw away

Just for Fun:

Have you ever worn anything with sequins?
This mutt has never been caught wearing sequins.

Bonus Question:

What is the lowest price you can remember for a postage stamp?
I seem to recall when it was less than 10 cents. Maybe 8 cents.
