2014-04-13 :: me // five

From here. What field trips, one from elementary school and one from high school, do you remember most fondly? I loved field trips. Loved them so much. The world is our classroom; that was the lesson I learned from even the earliest years. It’s something that has stuck with me, in my everyday life and […]

Bonus Meme Questions, 1

From here.   What did you dissect in high school? An earthworm (I have a photo somewhere) and a fetal pig.  I never got to do a frog because my biology teacher wasn’t into that.  The earthworm and pig were for AP Bio.  I hate to say it, but it was pretty fun. In what […]

From there. 1:What was the last argument you had about? The last argument in person? It was with Reid last month over whom to listen to about grammar and usage. Waste of time and breath, really. 2:How long is your longest relationship? Between six and eight years, I think, depending on how you measure things. […]

I’m still getting paid hourly, so while I had the option of taking as many days off during Christmas break as I wanted, it was in my better interest to work, as long as there was work to be done (and there is always work to be done).  So Tuesday I did a lot of […]

F5: Filmy Residue

From here. In The Spectacular Now, the main character is good at making everybody laugh. What social skill do you bring to a large party? I usually know how to talk to the wallflowers and make them feel a little more comfortable. I’m kind of drawn to girls who hang on the fringes, reluctant to […]

F5: Ill Fits

From here. What item in your wardrobe do you wish was better-fitting? I recently bought an authentic NFL Richard Seymour jersey that’s the right size but just fits weirdly. You know, because who wants to forget the Richard Seymour era in Raiders history? What role in a play, musical, or television program would be a […]

F5: The Person Who

These haven’t gone live yet at Friday 5 yet, but I wrote them so I can answer them whenever I want. At a business establishment you patronize regularly, what might the employees refer to you as, when they speak of you behind your back? I try to avoid ordering the same things whenever I frequent […]

F5: Greener Pastures

The wheels are back beneath me, and there is much rejoicing. Car guy said it was just one of those old-car problems, and he liked the way the rest of what he saw looked. I’m so grateful for parents who bail me out of problems like this, and although I fully intend to pay my […]

Turn Up the Radio

Yes, I am aware that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is not a 20th-Century work. I realized I must have misunderstood the list right after posting that last entry. Too many of the canonized novels written in English weren’t on it, and they all had in common that they were pre-20th-Century. I wonder if Gatsby […]

Check it out here. What random letter was generated by the online random-letter generator? (this doesn’t really count as one of your five questions) K. What geographical location, whose name begins with the letter, would you most like to visit someday? The place that leaps to mind is Kathmandu. I really would love to see […]
