The Thursday Threesome:

From's Word of the Day for August 12, 2004:

Flaneur \flah-NUR\, noun:

Onesome: One who strolls: How do you primarily get from place to place?    Do you walk locally and only drive for distances?    Ride your bike around campus or the neighborhood?    Or hop in the car to run errands?

A.   I hate to admit I'm so environmentally-incorrect, but I do use my car too much for errands and such.    But, in the area I live, in relation to the grocer and other businesses, I'm probably about 5-8 miles (one-way) from the business district, down a long, curvy, heavily-traveled country road - not too conducive for bike-riding.

Twosome:about aimlessly: When you have time, do you like to do things outdoors like hike or take long walks?    Do you wander rather aimlessly or do you have a destination in mind and the sooner you get there the better?

A.   Yes, I love the outdoors.    I love taking nature-walks, hiking, and spending time near any body of water.    I usually prefer a leisurely wandering . . . exploring nature at a slower pace.

Threesome:a lounger; a loafer: Or do you prefer to spend your spare time relaxing, lounging on the couch with a good book or a TV program?    Or, since the football season is upon us again, do you plop down in the recliner and cheer on your favorite team?

A.   If the weather is too hot or inclement for outdoor activities, I like curling up with a good book, or watching a good movie.    Even if the rains come, I like sitting on the porch, listening to the rain, reading - or writing - or just daydreaming.    As for football season, I'm not too into watching games on the tele, although I will watch my favorite college team when they're televised.    Having had season tickets when we lived close enough to attend, I much prefer the bleachers to the recliner.

This Author's Profile

♪   I am

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
