Five Question Friday – “Holy Crap This Was Actually Posted on Friday” Edition

Howdy folks!

…No, I have no idea why I talk like that sometimes either.

This week has mostly centred around the themes of “Trying To Figure Out What Balance Of Work Vs Play Would Be Most Appropriate For Me Right Now And Best For My Overall Health Because I Know I’m Prone To Pushing Myself Too Hard But I Also Feel Crummy When I Don’t Accomplish Anything And It’s Hard To Tell How Much Of That Is That Any Productive Member Of Society Should Be Accomplishing Things And How Much Is Me Being Too Tied Up In That For My Self Worth And Needing To Learn To Be Okay With Just Relaxing,” and “What The Heck Am I Going To Do About Work Once I’m Well Enough To Do Something About Work Because Sometimes Now It Seems Like I Should Be Thinking About That But Also Sometimes I Get Milk In A Day And That Feels Like A Huge And Poignant Undertaking.” It’s important to have themes that are concise like that.

As per usual, the week’s questions come via Mama M, and I would love to hear your perspective on any or all of them in the comments.

The Questions:

1. What movie could you watch over and over again and not get tired of?
2. What’s your biggest pet peeve right now?
3. If you had to describe your best friend in five words or less, what would you say?
4. If you did not have to worry about money or go to school what would you do for a living?
5. What is your one “splurge” item, that you will always buy, no matter the cost?

My Answers:

1. What movie could you watch over and over again and not get tired of?
I’m not a big re-watcher of movies in general. Even when I really love a movie, something in me is too aware that there are other things out there that I have never experienced, and makes me want to explore them rather than going where I’ve already been. I’ve watched a few movies several times in theatres (Lord of the Rings), watched a couple several times when I was younger (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast and some other Disney stuff my sister watched 5000 times, The Princess Bride, Titanic, …and for some reason Face Off). I’m starting to get to a point where I’m ready to watch some of the things that I know were really good but I haven’t seen in a really long time, but if I still remember what happens, movies lose a lot for me. Too much craving for new experiences and the unexplored, I guess.

2. What’s your biggest pet peeve right now?
One of the cats threw up this morning. I know it. I heard it. …But I can’t find it (which is weird…They’re usually pretty much the opposite of stealthy when they do that. In fact I’m pretty sure I could limit the area I needed to clean in my home by planting an easy-to-wipe-down pedestal in the middle of my living room and draping it in gold ribbons and sparkly arrows).

Anyway, I know it’s out there. Somewhere.

Surely this counts.

3. If you had to describe your best friend in five words or less, what would you say?
Rebellious, ardent, intelligent, complex, husband.

(yes, gag gag, but it’s true)

4. If you did not have to worry about money or go to school what would you do for a living?
If I did not have to worry about money, I probably would go to school. Permanently. …Though only part-time.

I don’t think I’m one of those people who needs work of some kind for fulfillment. But if I had to choose something anyway, I guess I would be a psychological researcher, novelist, study coach, broadway star, who made funny videos for weddings and other special events. What’s the job title for that, I wonder?

5. What is your one “splurge” item, that you will always buy, no matter the cost?
House cleaning service. Hands down. I can’t believe I didn’t do this years ago.

Many of my splurges are for experiences rather than permanent items (occasional nice meals, activities, etc.). I like to make good memories. …Although I do also like a computer that is capable of doing what I want it to do.

    Oh now I feel bad for not using my husband as my best friend!
    I totally get what you mean about the movies.

    Your tags get me every time. I really loved the Face Off one.

    As soon as I’m pregnant, totally jumping on the house-cleaning service bandwagon too…. A plus!
