Friday Fun Linkie

  1. So, baby, what’s your sign? Taurus
  2. If you could live in any part of your country, with money no object, where would you live? In the world? If I didn't live here in South Carolina (which, I love, by the way), I'd probably love to live somewhere in the North Carolina mountains. In the world - - - I'm not sure, since I've never been outside of the country. I'm not convinced I'd want to live anywhere other than the U.S., though.
  3. What is your biggest guilty pleasure? A few things, actually . . . food, lazy days and the internet.
  4. Do you have any hobbies? What is your favorite? Is there one you want to try? Scrapbooking and making handmade Christmas ornaments. I enjoy both equally. I'd love to learn how to draw and/or paint.
  5. If you were to take a single college class right now, just for fun, what would you want to learn about? Well, I'm in college right now & I'm not having too much fun. But, if I were just going to take something for 'fun' (if there is actually such thing), it would probably be something in web design or writing HTML code.
  6. When it comes to shopping at the mall, what is your downfall? I hate the mall & I suppose that might be my downfall. I'm not a big fan of shopping . . . PERIOD!
  7. It is Friday night. What are you doing? This particular Friday night (as in "today") . . . going to the old house to pick up a load and then just relaxing at home - - - maybe watch a movie. Most Friday nights, it's usually about the same . . . relaxing & hanging out at home OR doing something with friends and/or family.

FRIDAY 5

Click above to play along

  1. What’s something people do in public that really annoys you, even though it’s probably not a big deal? I cannot stand over-the-top PDA (public displays of affection).
  2. How readily do you ask strangers to stop their annoying behavior? Not very readily. These days, you might get killed if you voice your issue with someone.
  3. What’s something you do in public that probably annoys others? Sometimes, I can get really loud when I'm laughing & I'm sure that can be an annoyance.
  4. What’s your theory about why it’s so easy to get annoyed when one is behind the wheel of a vehicle? Everyone is already stressed out about the day-to-day things. People are so rude and inconsiderate when it comes to driving. So, it's VERY easy to get annoyed behind the wheel of a car. I know it is for me.
  5. What regular, minor annoyance have you learned to tolerate? I don't know that it's minor to me, but for others, I guess it would be. But, I've learned to tolerate negativity from others. I guess I'm not completely tolerant, but I'm more understanding because times are really hard & you never know what a person is dealing with.

FOUR FOR FRIDAY

Click above to play along

  1. Help, I'm Stuck: With gas prices hovering at more $4/gallon, motorists are said to be putting less fuel in their tanks, then coming up empty on the highway. Though national statistics on out-of-gas motorists do not exist, there's plenty of anecdotal evidence that drivers unwilling or unable to fill 'er up are gambling by keeping their tanks extremely low on fuel. In the Philadelphia area, where the average price for a gallon of regular broke $4 last Friday, calls from out-of-gas AAA members doubled between May 2007 and May 2008, from 81 to 161, the auto club reported. Have you ever run out of gas? If so, what happened? Oh yeah! It happened once and I swore I would never let it happen again. It was in the dead of winter & also the week of Christmas. I had so much going on because my father was very sick with cancer + the holidays were hectic (as always). My gas light had come on the day before, but I just knew I could get the inevitable 30 more miles. Well, don't believe that! I ran out of gas dead in the middle of one of the busiest roads the week before Christmas. Imagine the chaos I caused! And, nobody would stop and help me! I finally got a friend of mine to come & bring me gas. What a thrilling time for me!
  2. Summer 2008 Movies: Iron Man, Speed Racer, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Sex and the City: The Movie, Kung Fu Panda, You Don't Mess with the Zohan, The Happening, The Incredible Hulk, Get Smart, Wall-E, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, The Dark Knight, Step Brothers, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, The Mummy 3, The Rocker, Pineapple Express, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Tropic Thunder... which movies are you most looking forward to watching this summer? If I'm choosing from the ones listed, I would say The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Sex and the City, Kung Fu Panda and The Happening.
  3. Reviews: I recently joined the consumer review website Yelp.com, where I can read, create and post reviews of everything from restaurants to my local cable provider. How likely are you to write, create and post reviews on sites like Yelp or Amazon, and how likely are you to read consumer reviews as a part of your purchasing process? I would definitely be willing to write consumer reviews, but just haven't taken the time. I almost always read consumer reviews before I purchase anything big or when I'm visiting somewhere or using a service I'm unfamiliar with. I find them to be very useful.
  4. Bookstore: When you visit a bookstore, which sections do you normally gravitate to and which do you avoid at all costs? I love the Clearance section at Barnes & Noble, so I'm always headed there first. But, I also head towards True Crime, Children's, Self-Help and Top Sellers/Recommended.

FIVE ON FRIDAY

  1. If you had to participate in one olympic event what would it be and why? I'm gonna go with 'spectator' since I'm not very athletic. HA!HA!
  2. What is the one song you always sing along to? There are sooooo many, but the one that's been recent is "Wake Up Call" by Maroon 5. I LOVE it!
  3. Do you wear a seatbelt in the car? ALWAYS!
  4. Car, suv or truck and why? I have a SUV, but with gas prices the way they are, it makes me want my Honda Accord again.
  5. Are you a good/bad drive? Explain. I think they mean "Are you a good/bad driver?" And, my answer would be that I'm a good driver. I've only gotten one ticket ever and it wasn't even my fault. I try to be very cautious and obey the laws. I'd be lying if I said I never sped because I almost always go 5-10 over the speed limit. But, if you don't do that here, you'll get run over!!
