'Twas the season

For some reason assuming that I haven't already consigned it to the bin, today's Friday Five is asking about my holiday correspondence. In fact, I am an unsentimental soul who has already processed those cards and letters, but I'll take a stab at the questions anyhow.

Making the grade

This week's Friday Five asked me to fill out a little report card on my recent behavior. Luckily, the categories were very easy ones to excel in: there was nothing about how charitable I was, or whether I did anything intellectually stimulating, or whether I exercised. Here's what was asked instead:

Things have been a little rough here at the start of the new year, so it's time for another edition of the "glass-is-half-empty" version of my Daybook. Not that I can't whine at the cheeriest of prompts, but these ones are expressly designed to showcase my complaints. Ready?

Wiggly Five

Yesterday's Friday Five wants to know what shivers my timbers.

Let's get shaking!Collapse )

Fishy Fives

The questions in today's Friday Five all involve fishy figures of speech or piscatorial puns. According to the Five's webmaster, this is the second time he's used this trick; the first was back in 2015. Since I missed that set when it was fresh, I'm adding it to today's, for a "Friday Ten."

Workin' it

This week's Friday Five asks about work. I will answer the questions, but first, here is my favorite song about work:

Or wouldja rather be a ...?

The Friday Five I missed last week was Chinese zodiac-themed. This is something I know little about. I believe, based on my birth year, that I am an Ox, and the back of the menu at the Chinese restaurant always assured me that the Ox is compatible with the Rooster (the Man's sign). Based on that, I am disinclined to put much stock in the whole thing. ;-) Still, I'll answer the questions.

New Year's Meme 2016

So here it is, the end-of-2016 edition of that New Year's meme that I've been filling out every year for longer than I can prove (some of those posts having disappeared in the Purge of Aught-ten). My personal version of the question set has evolved a little over the years (I've added one or two prompts, but mainly deleted the few for which I could never, ever think of an answer); this year I have no new changes to report. My answers, of course, are new, but probably as boring as ever.

There -- have I made you want to read on? If so, clickCollapse )

On the horizon

This week's Friday Five, not surprisingly, asks one to look ahead. I am not going to go overboard on these answers, since I have my usual end-of-year mega-meme to post in a day or two.

Forward, march!Collapse )
