Friday Five: Random Questions

A great series of admittedly random questions for today's Friday Five from revkjarla:

1.  If you could hear what someone is thinking for a day, who would you choose, and why?
I am torn between President Obama (can you imagine how many times a day he thinks "what an idiotic thing that guy just said?") and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, enthroned just last month (can you imagine how many times a day he thinks "why did I say yes, O Lord?")

2.  If you were trapped in a tv show for a month, which show would you choose, and why?
I cannot imagine anything more unpleasant than being trapped in a network tv show, but I can imagine being with Tony Bourdain and traveling around for "No Reservations." Second choice? Anything on PBS with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, the most fun science geek on the planet.

3.  If you could do any job in the world for a day, what would it be?
Perhaps being the archivist for Julia Child's papers...what recipes and memories are hidden therein? Frankly, though, I truly love the job I have right now in a way that I haven't loved any job before. 

4.  What are you loving right now?
The nifty new media center my husband built for our living room - we had all the equipment sitting on a useless window seat before, and there were cables snaking around everywhere. Now everything is tucked neatly away, and that corner of the living room looks nice and fresh. I also love my FitBit, which keeps me motivated to walk as much as possible.

5.  Use these words in a sentence:    bless, cheeseburger, chihauha, skipping, Georgia.

In Georgia, they bless the cheeseburgers (although not with as much fervor as the chili dogs at the Varsity); but here in Richmond, only the chihuahuas are skipping after eating them.

You can play, too - just respond with a link to your blog if you've played. 


Purple said... were much more creative with your #5 than I was.

Maybe I should add Iron Chef to my tv show question after reading your play.

AWESOME last sentence. Nice to have someone handy around the house that can BUILD things. A tid bit envious! I liked your #1, too.
Peace to you!

and yes, it WOULD be interesting to get to read Julia Child's stuff! :-) But I'm so glad you love your job!

Julia Child's archivist--what a great idea. Looking forward to your published papers.

I think you win for creativity for #5!
