Five Question Friday!

It’s Five Question Friday! WOO! You’re excited. I know it. 

1. Do you close the bathroom door when you are home alone? 

No. I used to. Which is kind of funny. I think I used to close the door because I lived at my aunt’s which was kind of like Grand Central Station. Actually, my cousins’ friends used to call it “The Blocks.” It was always the place to hang out. People drop in all the time. And all of my aunt’s children, my great-grandmother, and my dad have keys to her house. Yeah. I closed the door. Now, living alone, it makes no sense.
2. You have to walk around with a word on your forehead. That word describes you. One word. What is it? 

There aren’t many words that could stand alone in describing me. One word that works, and is my favourite, is ECLECTIC. I love it. It’s me. *sticks word on forehead*

3. What store do you refuse to shop at and why? 

I refuse to shop, period. I intensely dislike it. I especially dislike it here because everything is super expensive. Everything is imported, mostly from the USA, so prices are more than doubled when they make it to the shelves. I avoid shopping altogether, and order online when I can. I HAVE to grocery shop though. I prefer Super Value and avoid City Market at pretty much all costs. The store is just too messy, poorly laid out, and the location close to me didn’t have a meat section for over a month. The refrigerators broke down or something, so no meat was on display. Customers would have to go to the back and ask the butcher for meat. There wasn’t even a sign to say this. The first few times, I just thought they were out of meat (for whatever absurd reason). That was the final straw for me.

4. If you participated in arranged marriages for your child(ren), who would you choose for your child(ren)? 

I don’t have any children yet. (Pray for me. I want some. Or a lot.) I imagine that I’d pick the awesome children of awesome friends for my children. I’d tried to match their personalties, somehow. Find complements. People to balance them out. Thinking about it is kind of scary. I’m glad they’re going to have complete autonomy in that decision.

5. If you could pick how and when you would die, would you? 

Oh, man. I don’t know… I don’t think so. It probably shouldn’t be that way. Knowing the exact moment. It would probably make life weird. Kind of like when you were 14 years old, trying to have a good time at a party, but paying attention to the time, knowing that curfew is coming up. Or worse, at 17, still having a curfew, having the car, and needing to maximize fun and time at the party, but needing to leave in enough time to get home before curfew. GAAAH! The pressuuurrre! No. Leave it. Let me be oblivious to my impending death. But wait… I definitely want it to be in my sleep. No violence, no pain.

I Know It’s Saturday

I’m doing 5 Question Friday on Saturday. Whatever. Who makes the rules anyway?! Here we go!

1. Vow renewal ceremonies-yay or nay?

Nay. All of the years of marriage are covered in that one ceremony. What’s the point of doing it again? The vows taken do not expire. They are not conditional. Nothing makes them null and void (with the exception of legal separation, divorce, etc., in which case, it would not be a renewal, but a starting-over-and-remarrying). Poverty, sickness, bad times… All covered in the vows. I see no need, no reason, to say it all again. Unless a couple is really looking for a reason to party, wants some attention, or didn’t really mean the vows in the first place. Orrr the first ceremony was a big rush and/or low scale (often the case with unplanned pregnancy), or just-made-sense more than the commitment was actually wanted (often the case when immigration/citizenship is involved). Other than that, nay. Lol.

2. What sound/s annoy you the most?
  • Pencils/markers on paper or cardboard
  • Cardboard scraping against cardboard
  • That hooorrrrrrible clicking/clucking thing people do at the back of their throats. fkj;fdkl;jhgk;hjkdfhjkghj;ghjkbn I hate it!
  • BZZZZZ! Flies, mosquitoes, bees, people… Doesn’t matter who is doing it. Me no likey.
  • The word “no” when I need to hear “yes”
  • The old Nokia ringtone. Can we all PLEASE say goodbye to 2001?
  • Frog croaking (YUCK!)
3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys, or only all girls for kids?
For goats, I don’t think I’d care. I don’t want goats anyway. For children? That would be horrible. *leans close to microphone* I’d like two and two please.

4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?
What’s there to believe (or not believe) in? I believe in healthy living. Whatever works. Different strokes for different folks, right? Really, whatever makes the most sense. It’d be pretty difficult to kill a rat with a fly swat, and ridiculous to try killing a fly with rat poison.

5. Would you take a family member’s children and raise them if they needed it?
Right away, as long as I am able. As a matter of fact, I’d like to adopt a child, period.
