Friday 5 for January 4: I Do Believe the Worst is Behind Us

E2 Hawkeye Landing

From Scivener's Friday 5: "Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website! This week’s questions are inspired by a certain movie I saw last week. I know I’ve asked #3 before, but it’s one of those questions I like asking every so often. I think the answers say a lot about us in very few words."

1. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done in the past six months?

My last big adventure was in 2010 when I took a trip to nowhere aboard an aircraft carrier. But that was more than 6 months ago. It's been pretty dull since.

2. What recently could qualify as a happy accident?

All accidents I've had are bad - spilling food, stubbing my toe, cutting myself, dropping or breaking something, whatever. Accidents have never brought me an ounce of happiness.

3. When did you last experience Buyer’s Remorse?

Lately I've been having long delayed buyer's remorse after several products with built in batteries have died and I cannot replace the batteries. Thanks Apple for iPods that batteries die and you can't use them again. I hate the concept of non-replaceable built in batteries: Apple is the worst offender. iPods, iPads, newer laptops. I was first victimized with this after my Palm IIIc died around 2008... I think I get my money's worth if a product lasts 10 years or longer. The Palm IIIc was bought in 2001. The iPods are newer.

4. In what way do people keep underestimating you?

Can't think of any.

5. What have you got in your pocket?

On a daily basis, wallet, some money, credit and debit card, driver license, comb, keys on keychain, and occasionally a tiny camera, small iPod player or flashlight.

From Scrivener:

"Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend! Tomorrow’s my birthday, so if you are inclined to wish me a happy one, please include a song lyric from whatever’s your favorite recent song."

One of my current favorites (I list the top 20 every week) is a song called "Clouds" by Zach Sobiech, a teen who has terminal cancer. He wrote this song for his girlfriend and it was recently recorded and released to the usual places... YouTube, iTunes and Amazon. Enjoy "Clouds" and enjoy your lives.

Currently @ #12 on Mel's Weekly Top 20.





Well I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now

When I get back on land
Well I'll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands
Maybe someday we'll take a little ride
We'll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I'll see you again
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now
