Friday 5 for February 22: Spinning

1. What’s had you spinning ’round in circles lately?

You see that video on the top. I hate when that actually shows up on my Mac. However it is better than the old system bomb from Mac OS9 and older.

2. When were you last on a bicycle?

Around 1982.

3. Who’s the best storyteller you know?

My friend and former mentor who now lives in Utah had some great stories.

4. How well do you handle carnival rides?

Haven't done those in ages. Too expensive.

5. What do you think of TV gameshow Wheel of Fortune?

It's a classic American TV success story. Huge money making syndication property. Keeps older folks glued to their TVs daily. It is my Mom's favorite show. I watch it with her when I visit. Vanna's cute. Please note that the video shown below is old, and may not be here as this blog ages.

And to go along with this theme of "spinning", a song....

Friday 5 for Feb. 8, 2013 - Cereal

1. What was your favorite breakfast cereal when you were a kid?

Captain Crunch, though if you left it in the milk for too long, it would still get soggy.

Frosted Mini Spooners

2. What’s your favorite breakfast cereal now?

If I think it is worth buying, then it probably is frosted Mini Spooners.

3. Where does cereal rank on your list of favorite breakfasts?

I'd rank it as "expensive".

4. What serial novels or films have you most recently enjoyed?

More so TV serials, specifically "space opera".... Babylon 5 and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. These two TV series as well as several others unfold like chapters in a book as their stories progressed over the seasons (years). Other TV series in the "serial" genre have included SciFi yarns such as The X Files (with several continuing story arcs), LOST and to a degree Star Trek: Deep Space 9. Other serial series that I have enjoyed over the years include Michael Mann's Crime Story and the British serial Doc Martin.

5. What recently surreal experience have you gone through?
