Friday 5 - Mementos

TGI-Friday 5!  I have felt it to be a long week, but I am happy to be facing a weekend that is pretty much a blank page at this point.  The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so I am happy :-)  Now, let's see what there is to say about those little pieces of evidence we can't resist holding on to...

1.Do you still have your senior yearbook? Where is it?  I know I don't have it, but I think my mom might.  I don't really want to ask, because if it turns out she doesn't, I might be kind of bummed. 

2.What souvenir did you bring back from your last trip?  Hmmmm...when was the last time I took a trip?  I brought back some lovely edibles and cleaning products from my last trip to the grocery store...does that count?  Sure, why not?

3.What visible signs are there of your most recent injury?  I don't have any visible signs of injury at the moment.  Invisibly, my left shoulder has been a little tender, making it hard to sleep on my left side.

4.What’s the neatest wedding favor you’ve ever seen?  I haven't actually been to a wedding in a donkey's age, whatever that means.  It is so easy to order personalized stuff now at a relatively inexpensive price.  I would think people are probably getting real creative.  Personally, I might like to give out personalized bookmarks :-)

5.What do you do with playbills and movie-ticket stubs? Some of them just go by the way side, but if I think about it, I have this box in my closet that I throw them into.  Every few years I go in and weed out a bit, to keep my mementos managable.

Hope you all have a memorable weekend.   And, as I always remind myself, you can't keep everything...but the memories are still there, it still happened.
Um, okay...I keep a thing or two around at work...

I don't keep much in the way of souvenirs, except an occasional bit of art. But the blog now serves as one big souvenir. On the whole, I'm not a fan of wedding favors - why do I want a memento of someone else's wedding? But I did receive one truly neat one - an Asiatic lily bulb.

Personalized bookmarks are a great idea! You're so creative with the events you organize at the library, you should play with the idea of making the bookmarks for gifts!...And to sell, too!

I'm sorry to hear about your sore shoulder! Pulled muscle, maybe? I hope it feels better soon.

Secret: You're right...I hadn't actually thought of it in quite that way, but what could be more of a souvenir than writing it down and showing the pictures.

Tara: I wish I were artistic enough to create my own gifts. Personally, I love getting things that people have made.
Thanks. I'm not sure what is going on with my shoulder. I'm hoping whatever it is just resolves itself...I do tend to ignore things until they go away :-)

I'm not much of a saver. I tend to toss stuff pretty easily.

Churlita: I have learned to be like that. I'm not a natural though.
