Friday 5 - Summer Blockbusters

Having a lovely Friday off today.  Efficiently did some laundry, paid some bills, had lunch and a movie with Girlie Girl and Handsome Lad...and the day is still rolling out before me!  By the way, you should totally go see Bad Teacher.  Great if you like your humor of the darker variety. 

Now, how about some Friday 5 in honor of the arrival of summer?  Friday 5 is always fun...I invite you to play along in comments or on your own blog.  And here we go...

1.What transformation do you undergo on summer Fridays at midnight?  I go from mild mannered performing bear to...more sleepy mild mannered performing bear.  Really.  That's it :-)
2. What super power do the kids in your neighborhood seem to have?  I don't have any trouble with the kids in my neighborhood.  I guess they are mostly just pretty super cute!

3.Who (or what!) is your nemesis in these warm summer days?  My own super active sweat glands.  I mean, I know it is actually good to sweat when it is hot...I am a super sweaty person can get embarrassing. Sexy, right?

4. What is your trustiest weapon against the evil heat monster?  I like to keep hydrated with lots of cool, cool water and I prefer a fan to air conditioning.  I mean, air conditioning can be pretty awesome, but if it is not available or I need to take it easy on my electric bill, I do like the air to be moving around a bit, even if it is warm air.

5. What seems to be invading your life lately, and how will you fend it off?  Oh, a little ennui I suppose.  My new boss isn't who I hoped she would be, but SRP is going fine.  DR is far away still, but my family is healthy and on track.  So there is good and bad, but I don't feel like I have a lot to be excited about at the moment.  Need to get beyond that and remember to feel gratitude for what I have.

Hope you all have a hot, happy weekend.  I will be working tomorrow, but will certainly be posting something COOL for Saturday Scavenger Shots.  Hope you'll stop by...and you're always invited to play along!

Ha! I liked your answers. I left mine over at Eclectic Spaghetti earlier. I hope you have a fantastic weekend too!

I too have hyper sweat glands. I can't wear half of what I have in my closet because I know that I'll show up in them if I sweat. Oh genteleman! Get in line please! :) Deoderants that claim themselves as "anti-persperants" can suck it.

I love that photo of you. It's very expressive.

Fridays (after my shift) mean that I don't need to answer a phone if I don't want to, and I can do whatever I please. Most of it revolves around either the TV or computer.

Silly: Yeah, I saw yours! should trump yesterday, that's for sure.

Tara: bwahahahaha! We are a couple of red hot ladies! Literally. :-)
I am pouty there. It's my new thing. haha!
A lot of my downtime revolves around those very same not only blogthings twins, but also downtime twins...and sweat twins!
