Friday Five: "If" edition

Jan from RevGalBlogPals writes:

In EFM this week, our question was, "If you were a color, what would you be?" So that's where this Friday Five comes from, at least its jumping off place.

1. If you were a color, what would you be?
I'd be blue-hoo-hoo, blue-hoo-hoo, blue-hoo-hoo-HOooooo! (Sorry! Gratuitious Veggie Tales Reference!)

2. If you were a flower (or plant), what would you be?
No question. I would be a rose. A beauty with thorns.

3. If you were an animal, what kind would you be?
A cat. Probably because the idea of sleeping 20 hours a day appeals... and because we're a 3-cat household. I don't think I could be anything else.

4. If you were a shoe, what type would you be? I'd like to say a pair of Birkenstock sandals, muddy from the back yard... but I don't want to horrify my daughter. Probably I'd be a pair of my Rocket Dogs flats because they go anywhere, work with just about anything outside of formal wear, and still look great. I love Rocket Dogs! I can find them for a reasonable price at DSW, and they don't hurt my feet!! I've been eying these beauties and are waiting for the price to come down.

5. If you were a typeface, which font would you be?
Something that is not regular and regimented, but is still readable. Probably something sans serif and as far from Times New Roman as I can get and still be considered "professional."

Bonus: Anything connected with metaphors that you'd like to contribute.
Well, you might have noticed that my blog is "An Unfinished Symphony" -- the title and reason are a metaphor in themselves!
Life is an unfinished symphony. God holds the score in His Hands. Sometimes my life is a cymbal crash, and sometimes it is pages of counting rests. But always, He is the Conductor. (...and I hear the Coda He's written is out of this world!)

I've always loved the title of your blog - it is a great metaphor! and although I have never heard of those shoes I will keep an eye out for them...

Roses, cats, and comfy shoes...we have a lot in common. I love Rocket Dogs too, but they are not as comfortable for me since my back injury. But I could make an exception for those...

The metaphor of your blog title is excellent. I've never heard of Rocket Dog shoes, as lately I've been more into Keens, but need to investigate. I'm older than you and may have really jettisoned the concept of "fashion."

RevDrKate said...

Great answers. Alas I cannot wear the "Dogs." At least the boots had to go back to the store, but those shoes are cuties for sure!

Auntie Knickers said...

Certainly are some cute shoes. I would say that sans-serif types are good for emphasis and headlines, but not as good for sustained reading, but that's just my opinion. I wonder how many people will not want to be a cat (after all as they said in The Aristocats, "Ev'rybody wants to be a cat, Because the cat's the only cat who knows where it's at.")

I have a very soft spot in my heart for cats...so you are welcome at my place anytime...to lounge, stretch, and play.

I can't do the Rocket Dogs, but they're cool shoes on other people!
