Friday 5 for January 14: Feelingverse


These came from Scrivener's Friday 5 blog.

1. When did you take the road less traveled?

It wasn't less traveled the last time I took the Crater Rim Drive road around Kilauea caldera back in 2005. Today it is the road way less traveled since half the road collapsed into the crater at the time of the 2018 volcano eruption. So now it is the road less traveled, at least near the southern end of the caldera.

2. When have you told the truth but told it slant?

Now why would I want to admit to that in a public forum? Pass.

3. When did you most recently strike out?

Bought a SIM card for one of my phones and it did not work. The phone is unlocked. I lost the ICCID number which is not the same as the IMEI number. The ICCID number was printed on the packaging the card came with. I more than likely tossed the packaging into the trash or hopefully misplaced it.  The service provider need that ICCID number to match the card with the phone. Ugh!

4. In what way is today like a summer’s day?

Well this is Honolulu, Hawaii. In the middle of the winter today... the sunshine is out, I am sure the beach will be busy. There is a slight chill this morning at around 70 degrees... but it will heat up as the day progresses and the sunshine climbs higher in the sky without any threat rain, hail or snow today.

5.  Where do you go to find yourself?

Friday 5 for January 7: Combo

 Friday 5 for January 7: Combo

"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!"

1. What do you have mixed feelings about?

Anything that I am uncertain of but for some reason have been forced to do.

2. What blended drinks do you enjoy?

Water with ice. The ice will blend into the water.

3. At social or professional gatherings (when it’s safe to have them), how easily do you mingle?

I hate those. I rather be in the background as a distant observer. I don't do well in group social situations. In that regard, all the social distancing protocols in effect for COVID-19 is kind of a godsend since socials are rare these days.

4. When did something most recently stir you to tears?

When my Mom died. That was in 2015.

5. What did you most recently add to your collection of something?

I bought 4 CDs in the last 2 months of 2021. I have mostly stopped buying massive amount of physical media for music and video since I had to severely de-clutter my place a few years ago.
