It took almost 90 days, but …

THE NEW SOFA IS HERE! Meet "Troy," from Crate and Barrel. As with my recent laptop purchase, I was grumpy about having to spend the cash for Troy. But now that he's here, I'm happy.

Friday's Feast #26

Make up a word and give us its definition.
My word comes courtesy of my 9-year-old nephew. "Hospitician." He explains this is what he's going to be when he grows up. A hospitician is "someone who helps people by working in a hospital." It can be, but doesn't have to be, a doctor. A hospitician can also help people by "reading xrays and looking through a microscope."

What is currently your favorite song?
"River," a Christmas song written by Joni Mitchell. "I wish I had a river that I could sail away on …"

What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year?
To have a wonderful time watching that aforementioned nephew and his older sister enjoy their gifts. And then to relive each moment of it with my mother -- their doting grandma -- before we go to bed Christmas night.

Main Course
Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life.
Licorice throat lozenges ("Throat Discs") remind me of my late grandfather. I miss him.

Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why?
Tori Spelling. She annoys me.
