Five Question Friday: November 18, 2011

Good Friday everyone! I do hope you all are waking up to wonderful possibilities today. And for those who are struggling for whatever reason, may you find the strength to get through your day, and comfort for having weathered the storm, whatever it is.

Nothing much has happened this week other than studies! By mid-December the quarter will come to an end and I will have completed one of the toughest required courses in this program. (The other mind-melter comes in the spring quarter!) Since not much else is going on, let’s get on with 5QF!

1.Β Do you have a go to song that always puts you in a good mood?

I have so many “go to” songs and music I don’t even know where to begin. MANY songs of many genres fit this bill. There is one however, that comes to mind right away. Not your everyday fare, but oh so uplifting! Maybe not your cup of tea, but I love it! dance to it! hum it! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

2. Are you a real Christmas tree kinda person or do you go with a real fake one?

We are not Christmas tree kinda people here. Nope. Not at all. Instead, around this time of year we celebrate Chanukah. We will light the menorah for eight nights, have a few latkas with applesauce, sing a few songs, visit friends and relax. Chanukah is not one of our major holidays, but it is certainly a beloved holiday by many.

3. What are you thankful for?

Too much to expound upon here. Soooo…. I’ll send you to my gratitude blog. Click here. There you will find many things for which I am thankful! πŸ™‚

4.Β Which fashion fad from the past do you wish you could wear today?

Nah…. Β None. Absolutely none. The clothes I wear aren’t so faddish anyway.

5.Β Do you wait until the “low fuel” light comes on before you fill up the gas tank?

Absolutely. Isn’t that what you are supposed to do? Makes my husband crazy. He thinks that one should never let the gauge go below the half-way point. I say, “why not?” After all, isn’t that what the low fuel light is for, to let us know when it is time to fill up again?



So, that’s it for this week. Have to get back to the books, but this has been a nice break. Y’all enjoy your weekend, and I’ll see you next Friday from KENTUCKY!

  1. Number one is the dreaded red X for me! The second one is a real foot tapper and it makes me smile as I type this. We call em potato cakes and I am addicted to them, CH makes them. Have fun in Kentucky Cecelia and travel safe!

      1. πŸ˜€ Glad you like it! I met the creator/director of the video. Very musical family, and you saw some of his family members in the video. I like that it is so upbeat. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks! Chanukah is coming soon and I thought this would be a great video to get us in the mood! But now I want some latkas! I’ll “see” you next week from Kentucky!

  2. I’m thankful that Christmas will be here soon and I will get the REAL tree I do every year we are home in the US for the holidays longer than a week or so. This year we will be home for the entire month of December, allowing me to decorate and spend time with family–and I can’t wait.

    However, Sara and I were out shopping yesterday and we saw pre-lit artificial trees in the every color in the rainbow. A total hoot. Sara wanted the orange one–YIKES!


    1. Enjoy your time at home! Especially since it will be over the holiday season. And an orange tree??? YIKES is right! πŸ˜‰

      Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I have the funniest story about X-mas tree. Growing up in USSR everybody celebrated New Year instead of X-mas and Chanukah. We had New Year tree and our own Santa, we called him Grandpa Frost, anyway… when we came here we did not realize that being Jewish means no tree on Winter Holidays. We put up a tree the very first year we arrived here and my husband was dressed as grandpa Frost full of presents for our 2 year old son (he is 22 now)…… and a knock on the door – Rabbi came to wish us Happy Chanukah. When he saw our tree, he was stunned and mortified, now years later we still celebrating our New Year with a tree, but we call it Chanukah Bush!

    1. Oh Ariana, that is so funny! Well, this season I wish you a happy chanukah and a merry new year! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by. When this quarter is over, I’ll spend a lot of time catching up with the blogging and all my blogging friends. Take care.

    1. Wow. Those were the days. I was in 10th grade, I believe. Loved the bell bottoms, the nehru shirts, long straight hair, etc. I did not have the “LBJ Sucks” circular patch though. I did have the peace patch . . . on everything!

  4. I wish that my family thought the gas gauge should never go below the quarter tank point. Every time I get in my truck to go somewhere, the β€œlow fuel” light comes on.
    Good luck on your studies and have lots of fun in Kentucky.

  5. I’m a Christian but I tried Chanukah once and got confused… I tried to spin the menorah and I set nine dreidels on fire. My insurance rates still haven’t fallen since that incident!

    1. Frizztext, thanks for stopping by. I tried to listen to the mild-cow-blues-boogie but it is blocked in this country; something about copywrite infringement. But the photo is fantastic! PURPLE SPOTTED COWS! I love it!

  6. Interesting with the fuel light question. Men typically wait till it’s flashing empty before getting gas… πŸ˜† I had to laugh at that one… I don’t like empty tanks but don’t refuel at the halfway mark either. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, the fuel tank thingy makes for lively discussions in our home! HAHAHAHA Richard likes to keep the tank filled at least half-way ALL the time. I watch for the little flashing light that tells me my tank is almost empty. Ah well . . . if that is our biggest disagreement we are doing well.

  7. NOOOOOoooo, Ms. F!
    Say it isn’t so!!!
    (You sound just like my wife on that fuel light one!)
    Light bulbs burn out and gauges etc. can go bad (now I’ve got at least two people I mentally see myself pushing out of a crowded intersection)! My back!
