The Friday Five (11/21)!

OK, up front? Sorry about the lame ass quality of the Friday Fives. List, list, list…snooze, snooze, snooze. I went to town for you guys last week when this stupid “Name X number of useless things to bore your audience!” trend reared it’s ugly head but today I just don’t have it in me to expound waxfully on five things I want to stuff into a watermelon. OK, it’s still not as bad as “How do I have my eggs” but man. Learn to ask the questions folks. Ask any (good) Journalism major and they will tell you all about open ended questions. Nothing more boring than “Yes. No. Toledo. Mel Gibson…”. Tell me why Toledo (please! I’ve been trying to figure that one out for a while now). I could care less about the bare bones fact of Toledo. Hell, anyone could answer Toledo without a thought. I have no idea even what’s with Toledo but I’m never going to know with these kind of questions am I? And look! The intro is now longer than the damn Friday Five, questions and all. That is so not right.

1. List five things you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year.

Toledo, Toledo, Toledo, Toledo and Toledo. Hee, just checking. Man, I don’t plan that far in advance. I have a couple things I want to get done before December so I’ll list those.

One: Thank Yous.
Two: Clean the House up enough so that
Three: We can bottle the Apple wine and
Four: Make Cranberry wine. Oh! and
Five: Pick up the wedding proofs on Friday. Hey, that was five.

2. List five people you’ve lost contact with that you’d like to hear from again.

One: Toledo!
Hmmmm. You know, I can’t think of anyone I have lost contact with that I would really, really like to hear from again. There’s a reason we lost touch, you know. I have a basic curiosity about some people but only in that remote “If I read about it or run into someone someday who has the info then I will know” kind of way. I got all my peeps I want to talk to right here.

3. List five things you’d like to learn how to do.

One: Play cello. Of all the strings I like the sound of the cello most and I think it would rock if DQ would be playing her violin, TheMan would be playing his bass and I would be playing cello. The all Q traveling string show! It’s not happening until I get my 36 hour days (the req is in and they are putting it up for review next week).
Two: Speak fluent German
Three: Learn to read and write Japanese
Four: Grow a green thumb that cares enough to finish all the green projects that I have started already (or is that find the effort to sustain my green thumb desires?)
Five: Drive a motorcycle. I’ll probably never get to this one but it has always been a curiosity of mine. Harley’s and green thumbs apparently.

4. List five things you’d do if you won the lottery (no limit).

One: Buy a cello and lessons, time be damned!
Two: Buy a rocking PC, upgrade the current PC, Buy EQ and get playing already. Oh yeah, and get the bossest Mac server they make so we can have connective fun.
Three: Remodel the house.
Four: Go somewhere overseas for an extended period of time. Maybe a couple someplaces but definitely stay in each of the someplaces long enough to get a feel for the place (no whirlwind tours!).
Five: Hmmm. OH! Heh, buy the U a building and have them name it after me. Or maybe set up a scholarship thing in the Q name for important research. Something worthwhile that keeps on kicking (and giving) long after I’m gone.

5. List five things you do that help you relax.

One: Nap.
Two: Vegging. This can include dinking around on the computer, building up leggo guys (bionicles rule!), watching a movie or TV, talking with TheMan, writing, reading, baking, puttering around outside, scritching kitties, or dozing – but not napping. Napping is done in bed, dozing is done anywhere else or on top of the covers. There are rules, you know.

You know, other than napping the only other thing I do to relax is veg. Of course vegging takes on many forms, depending on how you want to relax. The important thing is to be doing something that isn’t work or responsibility and isn’t too taxing.

Three: Toledo.
