Friday 5 for August 17: Statehood!

Hawaii Statehood 1959

From Scrivener's Friday 5 site:

Today is a state holiday in Hawaii, which I am blessed to call home. Fifty-three years ago, the island chain became the fiftieth United State, and while that is a mixed bag I won’t delve into, I won’t complain about a day off! So to honor the fiftieth star on the U.S. flag, here are five questions very loosely inspired by this day.

1. Hawaii’s nickname is the Aloha State. If your neighborhood were to be admitted as the fifty-first state, what would be its nickname?

Koreamoku Town!

2. What do you own fifty of?

Years plus some!

3. What’s the nicest beach you’ve been to?

Lanikai Beach near Kailua, Oahu. It's been years since I been there that I have zero pictures of the place.

4. A pizza with ham and pineapple is often called a Hawaiian pizza (something that annoys many of us who live here and can’t stand that flavor combination). If you live in Hawaii, what should rightfully be called a Hawaiian pizza, and if you live elsewhere, what would go on the pizza named after your area?

Kim Chee, Hamburger and Pepperoni - heh, it probably taste terrible but would go fine at the Koreamoku Town 51st State.

5. What mental and emotional states do you hope to attain this weekend?

Calmness and relaxed mental, emotional and physical states would be the best to attain, though not always easy.

Thanks for participating, and happy Statehood Day, Hawaii! Same to you all.

Friday 5 for August 3: Movie Questions

From Scrivener's Friday 5 site, he asks:

"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, please answer these questions that are also titles of films I’ve seen. Some of them may not make any sense, but do the best you can! Also: If you try to answer the questions literally, you may find this a boring set. I don’t actually want to know your number, and you don’t really want to share it. So here’s a little challenge to be creative."

Well, I don't think these are very creative, but the answers maybe are music related. Hence the videos.

1. Shall We Dance? ah ah ah stayin' alive, stayin' alive....

2. O Brother, Where Art Thou? He's not in the jailhouse now. Never has and that is good.

3. What’s Up, Doc? Great catch phrase used frequently by Warner Bros. Looney Tunes' character Bugs Bunny.

4. What’s Your Number? 867-5309 - ask for Jenny.

5. Did You Hear About the Morgans? Not really. Never knew anyone by that name.

Out of those movie titles I've only seen one of them. Can you guess which one?
