Friday Five: Positive Potpourri Edition

Wil Smama from RevGalBlogPals had me in giggles over this week's Friday Five...

Greetings friends! It's been awhile since I've contributed to the posts here at the revgalblogpals website, but I agreed to step into the Fifth Friday of the Month Friday Five slot.

So here I be.

As I zip around the webring it is quite clear that we are getting BUSY. "Tis the season" when clergy and laypeople alike walk the highwire from Fall programming to Christmas carrying their balancing pole with family/rest on the one side and turkey shelters/advent wreaths on the other.

And so I offer this Friday Five with 5 quick hit questions... and a bonus:

1) Your work day is done and the brain is fried, what do you do?
Most nights, I still have to study. Sometimes, I blog. I play on Facebook. I fall asleep with my face on my keyboardddddddddddd....

2) Your work week is done and the brain is fried (for some Friday, others Sunday afternoon), what do you do?
We have a Friday night tradition that involves watching DVDs and eating pizza. Right now we are going through the entire Babylon 5 collection. Hilarious. If we don't have our Netflix queue in order, sometimes we engage in other SciFi brain candy like Stargate...

3) Like most of us, I often keep myself busy even while programs are on the tv. I stop to watch The Office and 30 Rock on Thursday nights. Do you have 'stop everything' tv programming or books or events or projects that are totally 'for you' moments?
Reedy Girl and I watched Project Runway with great enjoyment. Suede thinks this is FABulous. Make it work! Holla atcha boy! (We loved Leanne, BTW and thought Kenley was a brat.) The other competition shows are... feh... OK. And I confess I do like watching the out-takes (seriously HORRIBLE singers) during the audition phase of American Idol.

4) When was the last time you laughed, really laughed? What was so funny?
Well I am a very serious person. Really. I never laugh. Ever. I especially don't laugh when I visit here... or here...
I told you. I'm a serious person. Really.

5) What is a fairly common item that some people are willing to go cheap on, but you are not.
Red wine. It shouldn't come in a box and taste like it is already salad dressing. Oh. And it shouldn't taste like a cork or like you just licked the side of the cask. Not that I know how to pick a good wine, mind you. I just know what I think totally sucks.

Bonus: It's become trite but is also true that we often benefit the most when we give. Go ahead, toot your own horn. When was the last time you gave until it felt good?
Probably when I helped send some kids on a Chrysalis retreat weekend. They met God and felt Love...

Now that was cool!

One final salvo from Wil Smama....
Let us know in the comments if you played and I'll come around and visit. The first 50 are entered into a drawing for a new car (sorry, that's a lie. We are immersed in political attack ads here in the US that lie and so I thought I would join in). Seriously, go ahead and let us know if you play. I will visit. And buy you a new house (lie). The last person to do the Friday Five is a socialist and hangs out with computer viruses (STOP!).

As always, comments and programming on this station do not necessarily represent the view and values of the revgalblogpals website or its associates. If you are an American citizen please vote by Tuesday or your computer will self destruct in 5 seconds...

I love your friday tradition, and wish I could get me some of it tonight!

Ah yes, Dr. Who. We did about 10 years of that and then original Star Trek and then Voyager and NOW we are on to Babylon 5. Total scifi craziness.
