October 28, 2011 – Friday 5

Well, I have finished my housesitting stint and decided to make a 4-day weekend out of it, too. So I’m here at home, posting on the interwebs!
There were a few things that I wanted to get done with my weekend, including organizing all of my quilting supplies so that when I get some spare dough, I can actually finish it. I thought it would take much longer, but I was pleasantly surprised that everything was mostly in the same spot in the basement and was easy to pack up.
A while back, Charlie and I were on the search through some of my college boxes for his printmaking tools, and ended up finding a whole bunch of old art supplies, college dorm detrius, and books. Since I was on a mission to get the quilting stuff organized, I went through those boxes, too. I cannot believe that I moved some some of that crap multiple times! I guess that goes to show you that a lot can change in five years. Next move I make, I’ll definitely be more prudent about what goes into boxes.
Before we get to the Friday5, here’s a few other things that I need to get done this weekend:
  • make Ham and Lentil Soup in the crock-pot
  • make two different dips for a Halloween potluck on Monday
  • use my 30% off at Kohl’s to buy a pair of interim business pants that fit (more on that later)
  •  switch out the summer/winter wardrobe (apparently, Cleveland weather strikes again, and we went from high-50s to mid-30s in two days)
And with that, onward, to the Friday5!
  1. What’s something you enjoy eating that many others would be grossed-out by?
    I love taking pinapple chunks from the can (can’t eat fresh pinapple because it burns my mouth), putting them in a bowl, and salting them. I love the combo of sweet and salty.
    Also, when DadZ makes soup, he breaks open the bones, scoops out the marrow, salts it and puts it on a cracker and we eat them as a snack. It grosses Charlie the hell out that we eat it, and I can’t eat many of them (too rich), but I do love it on the occasions we do have them.
  2. Which of your personal traits is most likely to make others want to avoid you?
    I get snippy pretty quickly with people.
  3. If you could wear a bracelet that had the power to keep certain kinds of people away from you, what kind of people would you repel?
    Emotional blackmailers.
  4. We are all capable of overcoming our biases, of course, but what’s a physical trait (in others) that pretty much turns you off?
    I’m going to go with pee hands. Wash your damn hands after using the bathroom, people!
  5. When you feel a case of the blues coming on, what do you do to fend off the bad feelings?
    I try to get up and get moving. If I get busy with something, I will tend to forget why I was feeling bad in the first place.
