October alternatives

Says the Friday Five's question-master this week, "October is my least favorite month. Give me some reasons to like it a bit more!"

Here are my efforts. Click!Collapse )

Pay day

Today's Friday Five asks about something I wish I were more of an expert on: pay day.

I don't get it

This week's Friday Five, entitled "I don't get it either," asks some kids to get off the lawn -- I mean, invites one to cast a middle-aged eye on contemporary culture. As if I ever do anything else.

Motley Five

Today's Friday Five are a miscellaneous bunch. As usual, I found some of the questions more challenging than others.

Homecoming Queen

Did anyone else see the recent movie Spider-Man: Homecoming? Besides being the first Spiderman flick to integrate the Spidey story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the movie featured the youngest-reading Spidey to date (yeah, I know the actor is actually older than high-school-aged, but you really couldn't tell). This week's Friday Five were inspired by the film and its setting, including the high school milieu of the web-slinging nerd-boy.

Scattergories time!

This week's Friday Five continues what's become an annual tradition for the meme: Scattergories!

Every so often -- okay, once a year beginning in 2012, plus once back in 2009 -- the Friday Five plays Scattergories. I didn't really start Five-ing till 2015, so when I did that year's set, I also included the ones from '09 and '12-'14, for a mega-edition of the game (25 questions on one letter!) that you are welcome to read here if you've nothing better to do.

For those who've never played Scattergories (or seen the TV game show version, or been tagged for one of the many Facebook meme incarnations), the object is to answer a set of random-ish questions under the constraint that all answers begin with the same designated letter. Facebook versions usually assign you "the last letter of your first name" or "first letter of your last name"; in the board game, one rolls a 26-sided die. For the Friday Five version, this random letter generator (set sequence length to "1") will name you your poison.

Somehow, after bingeing the entire archive the year before, I managed not to find time to do 2016's Scattergories when it came up, so I am appending those questions to today's, for a "Friday Ten." Ready?

I rolled the letter 'i'!Collapse )
