the Friday Five is back!

well - it is Friday, just :)

I used to do the original Friday Fiver every week.... but it just stopped without explanation back in June. I miss it!

I have a godawful memory - always have had - and I figure it will only deteriorate as I age - so I like doing stuff like this, because I figure it will help the future me understand what made the current me tick.

So, in my upsetness at the disappearance of the "proper" Friday Fiver site, I forgot that the hlog girls still post Friday Five questions! yay!

So I'm going to do the last few weeks-worth now, until I run out of steam or fall asleep :)

Friday Five

1.) Do you like fruit snacks?

Yup - who doesn't like fruit? (except my 6 year old) Bananas are a particular favourite for a snack - but I also have a real thing for summer fruits like strawberries and raspberries - and peaches and nectarines, yum :)

2.) Has your favorite TV show come back yet?

My current favourite is probably Dr Who - and that won't be back until 2010!!!!! sob!!!! but Heores starts again next week, and that will do.

3.) What song is stuck in your head right now?

*embarrassed smiley* The Pussycat Dolls "When I Grow Up"

4.) How important is it for your team to have entertaining commercials?

Not as important as the winning. But - two words - Swedish Twins :)

5.) Do you fold your clothes or just hang them up?

ummmm - neither??? :D

Friday Five

1.) How many pillows do you have on your bed?

Four. It's a double bed, 2 each side.

2.) Do you like to swim?

I <3 love <3 swimming. It was always my favourite exercise. And now I go with my little boy as often as possible.

3.) Have you ever donated blood?
Kind of :) well I tried to! but I have really bad veins. Whenever I have to have a blood test it takes them about 20 attempts to get a drop. So my donation attempt basically just involved lots of frustration all round. They still gave me a glass of OJ and a biscuit though :)

4.) Do texts or phone calls in the middle of the night wake you up?

Nope. Once I'm asleep I'm dead to the world.

5.) Hot or cold showers?

Fairly warm

Friday Five

1.) Do you color code things when organizing?

Organising???? what's that????
(the answer would be no :))

2.) Do you like to be warm or cold when you sleep?

Definitely cozy tucked up warm

3.) What summer/fall fashion trend can you do without?

Ummmmm - I'm fairly blissfully ignorant of fashion trends, to be honest. I doubt I've even noticed any summer ones, mainly because we haven't really had a summer this year. The last fashiony thing I noticed was girls wearing smart shorts to work. I won't be joining in with that particular trend :)

4.) Do you have your ears pierced?

Yup - three holes in one ear and one in the other. I actually wore earrings in them last month, as I went to a wedding and wanted to dress up a little. I think that's the first time I have worn earrings for at least 10 years.

5.) Where have you not been in forever that you want to go back to?

Depends on your definition of "forever". I am dying to go back to Canada.

Friday Five

1.) What is your favorite kind of fruit juice?
Pear, I think, if we can only pick a single fruit - or Apricot. If we are allowed a combo, it would be a mango and pineapple smoothie - or maybe pressed apple and raspberry. I love fruit juice.

2.) Any labo(u)r day weekend plans?

Well, we don't do labour day here. But I think it's around the same time as our August Bank Holiday weekend. I didn't do much, to be honest, just enjoyed the extra day off work.

3.) How dark do you like your toast?

Not dark. Definitely golden. Barely sunkissed at all.

4.) What's the best part about summer being almost over?


5.) How many email accounts do you have?

A few - one at work, one at home, a Hotmail account I never use, one for my Kesler site, one for the Art Raffle, one for the Little Boxes swap and one for Alison's charm bracelet

Friday Five

1.) Do you make countdowns to upcoming events?

Absolutely. You have to have something to look forward to. I have a little countdown ticker on my siggy of the forum I use most - it counts down to all my major events. At the moment it's just showing till puck drop this Saturday as that's my most exciting imminent occasion right now.

2.) What is your favorite comfort food?

Umm - something warm and stodgy - maybe cheese on toast all melted under the grill with BBQ or Worcester sauce

3.) Which TV commercial is funny every time you see it?

Hmmmm, good question. Can I go for the Swedish Twins again?

4.) How often do you wear a watch?


5.) Do you make to-do lists?

Sometimes, purely out of necessity. It's that dodgy memory I told you about up there ^
