Friday 5 for February 24: The other shoe

 The following questions come from the Friday 5 blog.

The song is "Just One Look" by Doris Troy. 😀

1. When did you most recently drop something off with someone?

I'm dropping off the mail today. One envelope to the U.S. Postal Service. There are plenty of someones working there. Otherwise the last time I dropped off anything with one person, was probably with my sister a few years ago.

2. Who is drop-dead gorgeous?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So who I may think is drop dead gorgeous may not be agreeable with you. Of course celebrities are easy to pick without getting personal. So in a nutshell...

Musicians - Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt

Actors - Sandra Bullock, Racquel Welch (RIP), Dawn Wells (RIP), plenty of others.

Models - Cindy Crawford

All of the above are now older women. Can't recall the names of women celebrities younger than me.

3. On what are you waiting for a price drop?

Any and all tech items... cameras, computers, related accessories.  Mac Mini M2. Hope springs eternal here.

4. What were the circumstances when you once dropped the ball?

Good thing I don't play ball since that would be dropped more times than ever.

5. What news recently made your jaw drop?

Invasion of Ukraine by Russia. That was more than a year ago now. What the hell is Putin thinking? Butthead.

Friday 5 + 5 = Two This Week

 Two Friday Five's in one... this week and last week.

Friday 5 for February 17: Bother!

1. When did you last put honey on or in something?

A honey coated cough drop was put in my mouth a few times in the last several months.

2. How do you handle a bad mood?

I YELL at the victim of my reprisal.

3. Which Winnie-the-Pooh character do you most identify with?

Maybe Eeyore; I tend to be pessimistic and negative.

4. Which Winnie-the-Pooh character would you best get along with?

Most definitely not Winnie... he is just too naive and happy. Maybe Christopher Robin... but more than likely Eeyore.

5. What’s your favorite way to do nothing?

Listen to music and scrobble songs. Otherwise watch useless videos on YouTube.

Friday 5 for February 10: In the pit

1. When did you recently pass the baton to someone?

A few years ago when I gave up being marketing director for Assistance League of Hawaii. I will be passing the baton (hopefully) as their newsletter editor sometime this year.

2. What do you wish you never fiddled with?

Updating this answer: My website that I forgot what the complicated password is! Ugh tried one of three recovery methods so far, not working. It involves tweaking some lines of code on the backend. Ugh!

3. What do you plan to reed in the near future?

I don't have a saxophone or clarinet, so there is nothing to "reed" in the future. Alas if it is "read" then perhaps a good book or magazine or something more than likely online that requires reading.

4. How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

RAINY this weekend in Hawaii.

5. What have you lately been nuts about?

Cashews. I also like Macademias, Walnuts and Pistachios.

Friday 5 for February 3: Ditto

The following questions are from Scrivener's Friday 5 blog.

1. What’s the last thing you photocopied?

A bill.

2. Who have people said you look like?


3. Who have you tried to be like?

Nobody. I am ok being who I am.

4. When have you opted for an imitation over the real thing?

Once upon a time I used to drink soda. I quit in the year 2011. Before that I chose Pepsi over Coke, which through numerous campaigns was touted as "The Real Thing". See the video at the top from 1971. Pepsi countered with "The Pepsi Generation". 

5. In what way was today just like yesterday?

The sun came up, it set and will rise again. The sky turned into night, and will do so again at the end of the day. A daily cycle that is good so that you know the Earth's rotation is still intact despite some reports that the core has turned another way.

6. Bonus question: Too early for flapjacks?

If flapjacks are another word for pancakes, it is never too early nor too late for them. My Mom used to cook pancakes for dinner in the night.
