Friday 5 for April 16: Aca-scuse me?

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!

Apologies in advance.

1. In what way have you recently been rebellious?

It's a small way but I hate wearing these government mandated masks. So often I am walking around with it on my face but below my nose. I have a hard time breathing sometimes... the mask is muffling. Hate it.

2. What fond memories do you have of camping out?

I haven't camped since the weekend of July 11,  1991. Camped in my car on the Big Island the night before the solar eclipse in Waikoloa... and saw everything except totality because a damn cloud covered the sun right at the moment. Arrrrgh! 

So it was a somewhat "fond" memory because I was with my friends, but the ultimate experience that I had been planning for a few years in advance was a major bust and disappointment in my life.

3. When did you last have a snow cone, or something similar?

In Honokaa we call it ice shave. Other people call it shaved ice. And I guess they're snow cones on the mainland. It's been ages ago since I last had one... more than 15 years I think. Can't remember. My favorite flavor is just plain old strawberry or half strawberry and half orange... only the ice and nothing else.

4. Where do you have difficulty fitting in? Where do you easily fit in?

While it doesn't occur often, partisan politics at work.

Where do I fit in? At home... by myself. I am not a group oriented person.

5. How do you feel about bananas?

Apple bananas are great. Regular bananas at Target are cheap. 38¢ each. Like most fruits I like my bananas a little more on the green side and I won't eat over ripe ones especially those with a lot of those black spots on them. Ugh.

  1. the black spots on the skin don't automatically penetrate to the fruit! they're at their best when they show a little bit of brown on the skin. :)
