friday 5: august

from here.

FRIDAY 5 FOR AUGUST 27: LIDS

What did the last hat you wore look like?
it was a baseball cap.

What’s your strategy for unscrewing those stubborn jar-lids?
i have a safety-jar thingie. it works!

How good are you at keeping a lid on it?
pretty good.

Here in Hawaii, people are often very self-conscious about their eyelids. How do you feel about yours?
really? i didn’t know that. i guess i don’t notice them at all.

Are you acquainted with anyone named Lydia?
no.

FRIDAY 5 FOR AUGUST 20: MINT!

How picky are you about toothpaste?
not very. whatever’s cheap!

What’s the best cooked dish you’ve had that included mint?
i don’t think i’ve ever had anything with mint. my aunty always makes mint jelly whenever she makes lamb chops, but i never eat it with the jelly.

How far would you have to go from where you are right now to get a breath mint?
um. maybe a half-mile or so to the store?

Got any gum?
no.

What’s something you keep in mint condition?
nothing, really. everything’s pretty well-used.

FRIDAY 5 FOR AUGUST 13: NO SUPERSTITIONS HERE!

What’s something good that there are thirteen of?
i guess doughnuts. though i don’t like doughnuts.

Have you known any black cats?
no. i have a black rabbit, though. 🙂

Among people you know, who seems to have an uncanny knack for games of chance?
hmm. i really don’t know.

It seems to me that while people seem to have all kinds of tokens of good luck, such as lucky articles of clothing or lucky rituals or lucky figurines, nobody has a lucky food. What would make a really good good-luck food, and what would seem to be a bad-luck food?
maybe pretzels. the straight ones could be good luck and the ones that curl back onto themselves could be the bad luck ones. or it could be the opposite, where the straight ones give bad luck while the curly ones look like horseshoes. or maybe both? or neither? well, if you get the rold gold, it’s bound to be good-luck, right?

Not that any of us believes in luck, but what’s something that happened this week that seems to have been very lucky for you?
nothing especially. 😦

FRIDAY 5 FOR AUGUST 6: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

When did you last see a rainbow? Have you ever seen a double rainbow?
earlier today. yes, i have. i have also seen a night rainbow.

Do you know anyone who actually says “OMG” in conversation?
yes.

What is the most beautiful natural sight you’ve ever taken in?
waterfalls.

If you had to freak out about something visible outside your window right now, what would it be?
a face peering in.

Andy Warhol famously wrote that “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes.” What are your thoughts on fame in this new century, where everyday people seem to gain fame at the speed of an Internet connection?
it’s sad when people get famous for being stupid, but ah well. spread the wealth.
