Friday Five is slacking off a bit this week…

  1. Where are you right now? At work, bored.
  2. What time is it? 9:45am
  3. What are you wearing? Sounds like a bad chat… I’m wearing baggy jeans and a polo shirt.
  4. Any people or animals around you? Describe them. None in sight. I hear Bill down the trailer. He’s a tall skinny guy, looks like the guy in the Curious George books.
  5. What are your plans for the weekend? Hang out with The Boy, try to avoid strangling him when he asks, “What’s that?” for the 100th time in an hour.

Hey, the Friday Five is back!

  2. What was the best gift you have ever received? At Christmas? Er…Drawing a blank. Gonna have to go with the skyscraper construction kit when I was a wee lad.
  3. What was the worst gift you’ve ever given? I don’t give bad gifts. This is because I rarely remember to give anything at all.
  4. Where will you be celebrating the holidays? Are you hosting or going away? I’ll spend Christmas Eve with my family in Arizona, spoiling the boy. Then, Christmas Day I fly to Minnesota and return on New Year’s

  1. Did you vote in your last elections? Yes
  2. Do you know who your elected representatives are? Yes
  3. Have you ever contacted an elected representative? If so, what was it about? Tried to get my rep to take care of an Army screwup several years ago – he just said the army is blameless in all things; he never got my vote. I also contact my rep and senators occasionally when issues of interest are up for vote.
  4. Have you ever participated in a demonstration? Nope.
  5. Have you ever volunteered in an election? What was the result? Besides the Mayfair Hall of Shame in 1988, nope.

And drum even.

  2. How many pairs of shoes do you own? 5
  3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, etc.)? Sneakers
  4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite? These ones, because they are very comfortable, durable, and they’re so unusual I annoy boring people by wearing them.

Thus ends another edition of the Friday Five. Have a good weekend.

  1. What are your favorite ways to relax and unwind? Read, play simplistic video games.
  2. What do you do the moment you get home from work? Look at the answering machine, hit CTRL-E to download email.
  3. What are your favorite aromatherapeutic smells? NONE of them.
  4. Do you feel more relaxed with a group of friends or hanging out by yourself? Alone, more often than not.
  5. What is something that you feel is relaxing but most people don’t? Can’t think of anything. Some people don’t find making graphics relaxing, but they don’t count.

What is up with question #3? That doesn’t fit at all!

  1. Would you say you’re good at keeping in touch with people? Not particularly.
  2. Which communication method do you usually prefer/use: email, phone, snail mail, weblog comments, personal meetings? Why? Email or LJ comments, cuz it doesn’t require stamps nor synchronizing schedules.
  3. Do you have an instant messenger program? How many? Why or why not? How often do you use it? Yes, all of them plus Trillian. Because friends use AIM, Yahoo, ICQ, and MSN. OK, almost nobody uses MSN because it sucks ass, but my family uses it. Pretty much daily use.
  4. Do most of your close friends live nearby or far away? Opposite ends of the continent.
  5. Are you an “out of sight out of mind” person or do you believe that “absence makes the heart grow fonder?” Generally the first, but some people won’t leave my heart no matter what.

Not a bad set of questions today, if more than five listed anyhow.

From Smattering.

  1. What was your favorite subject in school? Why? Math, because it made sense.
  2. Who was your favorite teacher? Why? Mr. H, whose full name escapes me. He gave me a box of electronics and said, “See what you can make of this” in 7th grade.
  3. What is your favorite memory of school? In 7th grade, winning a blue ribbon in science fair (for that box of electronics that became a Jacob’s Ladder and Tesla Coil) and a blue ribbon in an art competition (for a sketch of an elephant).
  4. What was your favorite recess game? Can’t think of any besides four-square.
  5. What did you hate most about school? Being invisible to the “cool kids.”

Post yours in your own journal. Questions come up every week at Friday Five

  1. What is your biggest pet peeve? Why? Stupid people. Not just the ones that are dumb, more the people who refuse to remember anything or learn anything new. Why? Because they make me want to kill.
  2. What irritating habits do you have? I’m sure the peanut gallery will have something to add, but let’s see:
    • I am paranoid about being late to the point of showing up everywhere at least 15 minutes early.
    • Things go in specific places. That is a rule. Food and utensils may not share cupboard space. Hot pads go back on the hooks on the wall.
    • I have been told that I can be a tad arrogant, but that’s only because I’m better than you.
  3. Have you tried to change the habits, or just let them be? I don’t show up 30 minutes early, but otherwise this is it.
  4. What grosses you out more than anything else? Why? I think I’m remarkably un-gross-able.
  5. What one thing can you never see yourself doing that other people do? Avoiding computers or books. 🙂

C’mon, smartasses, jump in!

The Friday Five makes a triumphant return!

  1. What’s your favorite piece of clothing you currently own? Funky blue shoes
  2. What piece of clothing do you most want to acquire? What am I a girl?
  3. What piece of clothing can you not bring yourself to get rid of? Why? Class As, because they’re part of my personal history
  4. What piece of clothing do you look your best in? Perhaps someone else should answer that
  5. What has been your biggest fashion accident? Um, white socks with black shoes, maybe? Who freakin’ cares?

The Friday Five this week is brought to you by the word lame and the number zero. I guess they ran out of ideas or something…

Backdated from the 23d. Must have been busy that day.

  1. What is your current occupation? Is this what you chose to be doing at this point in your life? Why or why not? Defense contractor. No. Rather be a computer geek, but they all want degrees now. PHBT!
  2. If time/talent/money were no object, what would your dream occupation be? I suppose beachcomber is not an occupation?
  3. What did/do your parents do for a living? Has this had any influence on your career choices? 80 different blue-collar jobs. No.
  4. Have you ever had to choose between having a career and having a family? No
  5. In your opinion, what is the easiest job in the world? What is the hardest? Why? Coroner – surgery on dead people. Bank teller in Alaska – everyone is wearing ski masks!

Back from DC, ready for the 10 days before I go back to the Coast again…

  1. Do you have a car? What kind? Yes, 1995 Ford Contour. The crappy one.
  2. Do you drive often? Well, I have to get to work somehow.
  3. What’s your dream car? 1967 Corvette Stingray. Black, with chrome trim.
  4. Have you ever gotten a ticket? Yes, but not since 1994.
  5. Have you ever been in an accident? Yep. Some moron rear-ended me at a red light. I had an old piece of crap Mazda, and it dented the previously-dented bumper. The moron ended up with a puddle of antifreeze under the mangled front-end of his car. Gotta love morons.

I’m tired. Can I go lay down now?

Hey, I wasn’t really near a computer most of Friday. 🙂

  1. What is your lineage and where are your ancestors from? Fuck if I know for sure, but the name came from Britain and my mom’s side came from Poland, Norway and Germany.
  2. Of those countries, which would you most like to visit? If I could only choose one, UK.
  3. Which would you least like to visit? I think I could do without Poland.
  4. Do you do anything during the year to celebrate or recognize your heritage? After 360+ years in North America, my family heritage is being a U.S. citizen.
  5. Who were the first ancestors to move to your present country? I’m still researching precisely, but it was in 1640 or 1643.

Total American mutt heritage. One of my aunts claims we’ve got a lot of freaky stuff hiding in the woodpile, including some Native American and black relatives back through the ages. I’m reasonably sure that no Bunker had slaves, though, since we settled in New England as poor people to begin with.

From Smattering, this week’s Friday Five.

  1. Where were you born? La Puerta de Santa Maria, Cadiz, Spain.
  2. If you still live there, where would you rather move to? If you don’t live there, do you want to move back? Why or why not? Don’t really give it much thought, since we left there when I was 2 years old. Seriously doubt I’ll move to Spain though.
  3. Where in the world to you feel the safest? On Asilomar Beach, central California. Or in my home, once the locks are allowed to be changed.
  4. Do you feel you are well-traveled? Within the US, yes. Never been to Europe as an adult, though.
  5. Where is the most interesting place you’ve been? Most interesting is a tough one, but I’d have to say West Hollywood, in the few years immediately following it becoming a separate city. They have a Starbucks now, instead of the Burger That Ate L.A., so it can’t be as interesting any more. Wonder if Wacko is still there.
