1. What gives you the heebie-jeebies?

COCKROACHES... especially the big, flying "B-52" sized American Cockroach just like the one pictured above. Horrible creepy creatures. I hate them when they fly. I hate them when they are on the ground. They give me the creeps when I try to kill them... stepping on them makes a horrible crispy cornflakes like crushing sound... and they still get up! And try to run. Repulsive sons of bitches these things are. They might as well be like that big Alien Ripley was trying to kill in those famous movies... yeach!

2. When were you most recently in double trouble?

Nothing recently or even in the not so distant past.

3. What puts you in the mood for some hanky-panky?

I'm a boring person. I don't engage in such activities.

4. What easy-breezy task is still a pain in the neck to accomplish?

Christmas shopping.

5. What area in your life seems especially rife with mumbo-jumbo?

Politics from the other side of the aisle. Some of those people on the other side are like cockroaches.

Catching Up with the Friday 5

This week I have answers to 2 Friday 5's. I looked at last week's 5 and thought they were good enough to answer one week late. I was not near the internet too often last weekend.

Friday 5 for October 15
Every Sha La La La... it's Yesterday Once More...

The Carpenters... Karen and Richard. Unbelievable that Richard is now 64. Wow.

I totally relate to their music since my long ago deceased sister first became a fan. "Now and Then" with the extended "Yesterday Once More" medley combined with 60s oldies is my favorite Carpenters song / side... great stuff!!!!

1. Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

They long to be "Close to You" and looking for a free handout!!!!

2. What always gets you down? Paying taxes.

3. If you had to live yesterday once more (literally yesterday, as in Thursday the 14th), which part might be worth writing a pretty pop song about?

"Resizing Photos with Malia"

4. Where’s the coolest place you’ve been where you could look “down on creation?”

That would have to be Volcanoes National Park  - Looking at hot lava oozing out of a crater is the ultimate rush in seeing something being created

5. What’s something in your life that has only just begun? Diet.

Friday 5 for October 8

1. Do you still have your senior yearbook? Where is it?

Yes. It's at my parents' place. I have a photo of it and the previous year. See above.

2. What souvenir did you bring back from your last trip?

Pictures and a video clip of my Dad.

3. What visible signs are there of your most recent injury?

Scratch on my knee from Poof the Cat.

4. What’s the neatest wedding favor you’ve ever seen?

Can't recall any recent or distant ones.

I've kept some of them... Rolling Stones ticket stub from 1998.... movie stubs from Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back. Several others. Sadly others have been lost.. Fleetwood Mac 1977 and 1979 concerts.... Eagles 1976 concert.... Elton John 1980 concert...
