Five Question Friday: September 16, 2011


Good Friday once again.  I hope your week has gone well.  I completed my last paper of the school quarter and submitted it about thirty minutes ago, so I’m feeling great. Richard and I will make the most of the three-week break between school terms and I hope to have a lot to share with you during this time. But for now, let’s get on with today’s questions which appear below. I thought that I might come up with my own questions this week, but this was a challenging week and finals week to boot! The brain is drained, so nothing too creative this time around. Please feel free to join in and leave some of your own answers. Here goes . . .

1. If you had a weekly newspaper column, what would you name it?

I’m not sure what I would name it. My family and friends tell me I ramble a lot so something like “C’s Ramblings”, or “Rambling Thoughts,” or not. I never have been good with quippy, pithy titles . . . not my forte, so this question is quite a challenge for me.  What would you name your weekly newspaper column?

2. Who is your mentor/inspiration?

Oh my, another challenging question! There are so many people who inspire me. The first answer that comes to mind is my mother. She is an amazing woman who looks at the world with wonder. She is in her 80’s now but she is still interested in the natural world, asking questions, going to museums and traveling with Dad. Whenever we speak, which is rather frequently, she usually has some new insight or something of great interest to tell me. Mom is one of those who has always figured out how to make lemonade with lemons, and then enjoy the taste.

There are many more men and women who inspire, but my mom is the one nearest and dearest to my heart.

3. What is your wake up beverage of choice?

Coffee, naturally!  No one speaks to me till I’ve had my first cup of coffee each morning. Wish it weren’t so, but it is. . . What can I say 😉

4. Would you wear your mom’s clothes?

No. Probably not. But then, she wouldn’t wear mine either.

5. When you were a kid, did you put posters on your wall? If so, what were they of?

Yes, of the Beatles, the Monkeys, the Beachboys, and others.

OK, let’s hear your answers! ;-D
