Friday 5 - Red

Today's Friday 5 is a fun and simple one.  You should give it a go and live the dream.  haha! 

1.What is your favorite red food?  For some reason it took me awhile to catalog "red food" in my mind :-)  Then I kicked into gear and came up with strawberries.  Mmmmmm...strawberries.

2.When were you last caught red-handed?  Yesterday, I was sort of hovering around my new co-worker's desk looking at this cart of donations.  When we were between librarians, I was assigned to sort through donations, but it is really not mi trabajo.  Anyway, she was kind of defensive when she saw me looking, like, "Oh, I was getting to those."  And even though I wasn't doing anything wrong, I felt sort of caught at something.

3.What’s your nicest red article of clothing?  I don't really have "nice" clothing.  I do like my long, stripey socks with red, orange, and pink stripes.  I've been feeling knee sock-ish lately and those are my faves.

4.Who’s got the loveliest red hair?  Aw, my son Social Animal.  Don't call him a ginger...they hate that!  haha! 
My redhead in the middle...they all have very short hair though, as I believe this was from last summer.

5.What are your thoughts on the 2002 Baz Luhrmann film Moulin Rouge!  My thoughts are that I was never that interested in seeing it, so I haven't.  I like Ewan MacGregor though....
Hope you guys are RED-y for a fab weekend, doing whatever your little hearts' desire. 
***By the way, for the next three months I will be attempting to meet the challenge set forth at Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections by AlienCG via AlienGF....or the other way around.  Whatever.  It is simply this: Write a poem everyday for the next three months.   It doesn't have to be long, or doesn't have to be just has to be written!  So, of course I'm in.  I'll start tomorrow, May 1, and keep on writing a poem a day until Saturday, July 31.   Poetry rocks!***

Love me some strawberries, but I'll make myself sick on watermelon. I miss CA when driving home from work you could buy a huge flat of strawberries for 6 or 7 bucks from at least 3 different stands. One on every corner almost.

"knee sock-ish" Not sure I've ever felt that.

Strawberries. Raspberries. Apples. Watermelon. Pomegranates. Lots of good red fruits out there. And then there's red hots. And seared ahi tuna. Mmmmm.

KenV: And strawberry season is just beginning! I'll be heaven for the next couple of months :-)

Secret: haha! The first thing that came into my mind was red hots. Nothing like that little cinnamon bite.

I don't have an interest in seeing "Moulin Rouge" either. I heard some of the music during a bachelorette party, and that was pretty catchy.

Tara: I actually suspect I might like it. Maybe someday :-)

No desire to see Moulin Rouge. It seemed too cheesy even for me.

Favorite red food? Raspberries.

laura b. said...

Churlita: There is a high cheese factor there :-)
I think my daughter would agree with you on the raspberries.
