Friday Fives

As much as these posts seem random and possibly shallow, I do usually enjoy them. These are pretty lame. You have been warned.

November 19: Save the Animals?

  1. Do you have pets? If so, name them all and describe them! I have zero pets. I’m not a big animal fan. My family has a cockatiel named Jazzie. She had her flying feathers clipped as a baby, so she’s really bad at flying now. She tends to walk down the hall like a dog, which is bad because she’s a very good size for getting accidentally stepped on.
  2. A dangerous situation is happening and you spot an animal trapped, probably too afraid to get to safety. It could be a raging flood or crumbling cliffs and the animal could be a dog or cat – or perhaps your own family pet. Would you make an attempt to save them? If it’s a danger to me, then no! If I can tell that I’m going to be okay, then maybe.
  3. Even if you would or would not make an attempt, let’s say you somehow get to the poor animal but circumstances change and you can’t get back to safety. Maybe in the raging flood, you walked on something that finally broke free. Maybe the steps you used upon the crumbling cliffs had given way. Help has finally arrived in the form of a helicopter but they say they will only take you to safety and you must leave the animal behind. Would you or would you not? I would. Animals deserve to be treated with kindness, but they’re not people.
  4. There have been situations where people have tried to rescue dogs and cats but got stuck themselves. Do you think the rescue officials have the right to sue people who decided to help but ended up getting stuck themselves? It depends on the level of danger. Rushing into a burning building is only a good idea if you’re a firefighter. If you couldn’t possible foresee any danger, then you can’t be held responsible for putting yourself in danger. If you knew it was dangerous when you got involved, then it’s your fault for getting involved.
  5. The questions were to make you think about the value of an animal’s life. Did it help you rethink a few things or did it just help you hash out what you already feel? I’m pretty set.

December 3: Celebs and Addictions?

  1. If you could interview any person, who would it be? Does Jesus count? I’m not sure I could actually manage to ask anything, but the opportunity would be nice.
  2. If you could ask that person one controversial question, what would it be? Just one?
  3. Are you addicted to anything? I really like Icebreaker mints, but I was off them for a while.
  4. If you were told you need to abstain from that one addiction for a week, how long would it take you to crack? See previous question.
  5. If you could be any celebrity who would you be? Why? Being Oprah might be cool. So much money, so big a transformation from her youth, so much influence.

December 10: Random!

  1. What’s your favorite tree house story? I don’t even know what this question means.
  2. If your life was a soap opera, what would it be called? Well, I’ve taken to referring to things as some sort of “times” (good times, sad times, fun times), so perhaps Times.
  3. If you change your name, does that take away all your past and give you a new start? Aren’t these supposed to be opinionated questions? No. It might help you hide your past as a serial killer, but it doesn’t actually take anything away.
  4. What’s worse being creepy or a dramatic liar? Creepy. If you’re dramatic enough, people will know you’re a liar and won’t trust you. Creepiness gets to people’s heads.
  5. Have you ever stabbed anyone in the back? I don’t think so.


December 17: Old Plans/Dreams

  1. What job do you have and why do you like/hate it?I think I’m going to write a separate post about this and come back to link it.
  2. What did you want to be when you “grew up” as a kid? A nurse. Then a teacher. Tried that; didn’t work.
  3. Is the job you have now, anything like what you imagined as a kid? So very different.
  4. Do you have a 5 year career plan? No. My brief experience has encouraged me not to create one.
  5. In order to get the job of your dreams, is there ANYTHING you WOULDN’T do? Why? Commit a crime or a mortal sin. I feel like that’s a pretty basic answer.
