Answers to today’s questions at thefridayfive @ Dreamwidth.
1. Mysteries. Do you sleuth alongside Nancy Drew or Miss Marple? Fan of Nero Wolfe?
Oh yes! Mysteries/detective stories/crime thrillers are one of my favorite genre both to read and watch on TV. I always try to guess who’s the guilty one or what is going on and I’m pretty good at it after having read and watched for so long.
2. Plan on making a batch of chili? Have a top secret recipe to share?
Does this mean like chili con carne..? I don’t really like chili even the mild one is too hot and spicy for me so nope, no plans. I googled and apparently chili con carne is made with beans – I don’t eat beans but I do make a similar food except I use rice or macaroni or other pasta instead of beans. And no chili. But I’m not planning on making that one either in near future.
The next time actually I’ll cook something it’ll probably be pannulasagne which is an easy & quick version of lasagne. It’s made in the frying pan and takes about 30 minutes according to the recipes I’ve seen. I only discovered pannulasagne last week, haven’t had a chance to make it yet but can’t wait to try it out!
3. Does your car or did a family car have a name?
4. Did you walk to school with your friends? Take a school bus?
Grades 1-6 I walked to school, often with my best friend but not always because we were on different classes (on the same grade) so our schedules didn’t always match. Grades 7-9 same thing, but school bus. If my best friend had a different schedule, I preferred to go it alone because the pupils on my same class whom I considered school friends lived in a different direction and the ones who went my way, I didn’t care about. I rather was alone after being in a class with 20-40 noisy acquaintances the whole day and I’d had my fill of it. I’m more of an introvert so the alone time was usually welcome after school days.
5. Ever have someone carry your books home from school?
Not the way this ask means, I think? As a romantic thing?
Not school books (because those I carried on my back in a backpack), but shopping bags sometimes. I did the shopping in the city center in the good shop which had the good bread, meats and cheeses because my best friend and I always went to a second hand bookshop on Fridays after school to buy comics – the bookshop also got newly released ones from the US) and the then I’d do the bread/meat/cheese shopping on the way home from the bookshop because it was on the way. My best friend a few times carried my shopping a lot of the way but only when I needed help – like that time when I had hurt the fingers of my left hand and it hurt to carry or even just hold things with it, or when I needed my good hand free to do something with it. I returned the favor whenever she needed help obviously. But mostly we carried our own stuff.
