Friday 5 - Bottles

This is an anniversary of sorts, but not one I particularly care to observe. I just want to chill the fook out with a cool beverage. So please join me in a little Friday 5! It's fun, I swear.

1. When did you last drink something out of a glass bottle? Last Sunday morning when I had one of those yummy Starbucks Frappucinos in a bottle. Mmmmmocha.

2. Whose energy would you like to bottle for those future listless days? Oh, no question. I will take my oldest granddaughter Miss Personality, bottle up that energy, and nothing will stop me then!

3. How many plastic bottles are there in your shower, and what’s in them? Well, you'll either be proud of me or find me sad...your call...but I went and counted the plastic bottles in my shower. Turns out there are seven. Shampew, conditionair, two body washes, a body scrub, a very nearly empty bottle of Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap...and another completely full one. An embarrassment of riches! Or just an embarrassment?

4. Who in your life could be described as lightning in a bottle? I wanted to be sure just what "lightning in a bottle" means, so I looked it up. The full expression is “like trying to catch lightning in a bottle”, sometimes “to keep lightning in a bottle”, and it describes something that’s extremely difficult, perhaps bordering on the impossible. Under that definition...I guess the more difficult person I know right now is actually three people. Three of my co-workers are working my last nerve. And I am working my own last nerve as I gripe about them to anyone kind enough to ask about my day. I swear though, they are seriously DIFFICULT, perhaps bordering on the IMPOSSIBLE right now.

5. You’re playing Spin-the-Bottle with your sixth-grade classmates. When it’s your turn, to whom do you want the bottle pointing? Sixth grade, eh? I am going to have to go with, I don't even remember his last name. Aw, he was so cute though... All us girls thought he looked a lot like David Cassidy :-)

Thanks for participating and have a loooong (neck) weekend!

Oh, and guess what? I was counting back and apparently last Monday's post (Happy Extra Day Off) was my 1,300 post. Damn, right? Damn.

1. I think it was an IBC Cream Soda.
2. My neighbors' kids.
3. 2 bottles, one soap, one shampoo.
4. I'm not totally sure on this one.
5. Sixth grade? I haven't been there in years, I can't remember.

Congratulations on 1300, that's huge.

Ananda: haha! Mork would be a good source of energy :-) One Black Butte Porter coming right up!

Tara: Aw, thanks. That is sweet.

AlienCG: I love cream soda. And I thought that 4th one was tough too.
Thanks Alien :-)

We have a lot of bottles in our shower too. I blame my teenage daughters.

How sad that I can't remember who I had a crush on in 6th grade. I have used first and last names of kids from that time of my life, and they googled themselves and found me. Maybe it's for the best that I don't remember his name. I'm sure he had nice feathered hair and giant comb in his back pocket whoever he was.

the glass bottle would have to be a beer of some sort - maybe a corona

anybody's energy would be better than mine on this lovely friday evening. dandu, my middle son, would be the one i'd bottle

three plastic bottles - all shampoo - i wish i had some peppermint soap - i love that stuff

my husband is the bottled lightening in my life right now - not sure how to deal with him - i need a support group that's for sure

finally - christian schwoerke (google away buddy!)

Churlita: haha! Yes, my daughter is why there is so many kinds of washy stuff...and products for blondes, which I am not.
I bet that sixth grade dreamboat knew how to shake his hair back out of his eyes :-)

Crazy4Coens: That soap helps me feel a little of that elusive energy that I so desperately need bottled for me :-) Husbands...I'm afraid I hear you there and even if we don't talk about it, consider me a great supporter of yours.
And oh...I WILL be googling. Oh, yes, I will....
