Friday 5 on Saturday - Leftovers

Hello and welcome to the moody hangover that is the weekend after Thanksgiving :) So much food!  So much family! Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...which for me means work today (Saturday). I thought I'd go check out this week's Friday 5. I thought it was particularly clever with some leftover questions from other Friday 5s getting their big chance.  So even though it is Saturday, I decided to participate. Please feel free to join in! Have I mentioned that I ♥ comments?

1. Leftover from April 17, 2009: What’s a creature comfort (practically unnecessary) you must take with you on an overnight trip in the great outdoors? Please consider a phone something that has practical necessity!  Let me start by saying I couldn't quite tell you when my last overnight trip in the great outdoors even occured. However, were that to come up, I know I would want to have a book or two with me. Practically necessary? No. But for me, reading material feel necessary on every level! It's an addiction.

2. Leftover from August 31, 2007: What did yesterday cost you? <– Thanksgiving in the U.S., but answer it for wherever you are and whatever you did! If I stick with the idea of what did Thanksgiving cost me, the answer would be nothing! I didn't provide anything except my company.  It took maybe $10 in gas to drive to my dad and stepmom's...but they gave me $40 and a roll of quarters for laundry! So, I actually made $40 on Thanksgiving.
Love don't cost a thing...
3. Leftover from January 25, 2008: What was your excuse the last time you were REALLY late for something? I'm usually not REALLY late for things. But I am sometimes a BIT late. Last time I came in to work late, my excuse was multifaceted. It included Handsome Lad having been difficult to get out the door and off to school, exceptionally horrific traffic, and the understandable need to arrive with some coffee.  And it was fine :)

4. Leftover from February 18, 2011: What was your first online purchase? I can't say, in all honesty, that I remember my first online purchase. Given what I tend to purchase though, I imagine it was either a book or a CD. Maybe it was naughty lingerie. I went through a brief flirtation with naughty lingerie that might have coincided with the beginning of online purchasing. So maybe.

5. Leftover from December 25, 2009: Which of your gifts do you think you do not put to its best, fullest use? I think I have been given the gift of empathy. I have to say though, it can be difficult and painful to use it fully. So I don't think that I do. I mute it or I'm not sure how I'd live.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving...or a wonderful past couple of days...and a good weekend as well! Now, if I can get through Xmas in one piece I can call this year a relative success.

1. A mirror and tweezers? Woodland creatures don't care what your eyebrows look like!

2. Thanksgiving cost us about $100!

3. Last time I was really late was to work... and I'd broken down on the freeway.

4. That's an easy one for me. My first Dell Computer. I had to use a friend's computer to buy it.

5. This is a hard one. Do I have a gift? Maybe my creativity. I tend to get lazy with it.

1. Something comfy to sleep on? I don't sleep outdoors these days.
2. Let's see, I made a 680 mile round trip so in my car that would be about $45 in gas. Plus a couple of bottles of wine, plus paperwhite growing kits I handed out to family. A little food for the drive. Maybe $100 all told?
3. I'm absurdly punctual. Even when I'm trying to be fashionably late.
4. Good grief, I have no idea.
5. Um... I don't know the answer to this one either.

Silly: I might need you to come do my eyebrows! And you are DEFINITELY creative!!! Use it :)

Secret: That is a good long trip, but luckily you have such an economical car.
You have many gifts, I can see that even just from reading your blog. I guess one must be the gift of modesty. Or maybe it is that you are able to use your gifts fully!

Can you tell me where to buy empathy?

NoRegrets: ha! I think you can find it at any Empathorium.
