Dang it, Saturday Again!


Not that I’m opposed to Saturday, of course.  Really, just the opposite.  But, it means I let another Friday pass by without doing Five Question Friday.  (I did check last week, but they were taking a week off from the prompt list.)five question friday

Anyway, again under the heading of ‘better late than never’, here we go . . .   

Oh, and if you want to visit the original host, go here.


1. Are you a napper?

Every chance I get.  It’s one of those things that definitely can’t be fully appreciated until you’re older—too bad the habit is wasted on the kids!  On the other hand, I’m always up way too late at night and then often sleep in the next day, so I can’t say that my sleep patterns should necessarily be emulated.

2. What was your favorite subject in school? Most hated?

I always loved English.  Reading, writing, discussions about literature, it didn’t matter; I loved it all.  Heck, I didn’t even really mind diagraming sentences. 

The other end of the spectrum, though, was math.  As far back as I can remember, and all the way to my college courses, I struggled with the ‘rithmetic.   It’s really not any different now, except that I don’t have to sit through any more classes.  But if it’s much more complicated than add/subtract/multiply/divide, I am not your girl. 

3. Did you have the something old new borrowed and blue at your wedding? What were they?

Yep, but only two items.  Borrowed an old-time coin for my shoe, and got a new blue garter.

4. What one thing are you determined to do this summer?

There are two, really.  Continue my exercise regimen (which will hopefully lead to a loss of another 10 pounds), and get back to my project of scanning my old photos.

5. Ice cream or Popsicles?

As a rule, ice cream, though I’ve always been fond of Creamsicles, which are close to a lovely combination of the two. 

Yep, this is still fun, even if it is still a day late.  If you’re needing something to post about, or just something sort of light and whimsical, do play along.

Enjoy the holiday weekend.


  1. if i were a napper Id never get to sleep at night and I sometimes have enough trouble already

    I LOVED English too so much so that I went back and got my 6th form certificate in it :) I left school at the end of 5th form when I was 17

    and like you I understood the basics however by the time I got to high school it was like a 2nd language and I didnt understood a word of it

    1. I'm very lucky in that I rarely have trouble sleeping. In fact, right now I'm wishing I'd taken a nap today, as I'm pretty danged tired right now! Suppose that means it's time to turn off the computer and actually go to bed. ;-)
