Friday Five:

1. Hey, baby, what’s your sign? Do you think it fits you pretty well?
I’m a Pisces. My birthday’s coming up real soon! March 15, to be exact. Yeah, I think Pisces fits me well. Except for it being a fish, and me with that seafood aversion and all…

2. What’s the worst birthday gift you’ve ever received?
Ugh. One of my high school boyfriends once presented me with a cubic zirconia tennis bracelet. I’m not disparaging the cheapness; I’m disparaging the entire concept. I am the last person on the face of the world that you’d possibly imagine wearing a jeweled tennis bracelet. *shudder*

3. What’s the best birthday gift you’ve ever received?
It’s probably a tie between the car my parents got me when I turned sixteen and the bike I got when I turned seven. No, it was definitely the bike. It was beautiful: purple with rainbow streamers on the big curvy handlebars, and a painted rainbow on the banana seat. I loved it.

4. What’s the best way you’ve celebrated your birthday thus far?
Last year was pretty good. The Snook and I had a picnic at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens and then watched “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” out in the park. The best of my childhood was when I had my party at Showbiz Pizza. I got to sit in a throne and talk to the robotic singing animals. It was fantastic.

5. What are your plans for this weekend?
Friday was “Visa Day”, which thankfully went well. Today I’m entertaining the Snook and his friends, who are gobbling down my chocolate cake while playing “Lord of the Rings” as we speak. (Movie quote: “I feel like I’m babysitting but I’m not getting paid.”) *grin* Other than that, I’ve got a ton of internet chores I need to do. I’m also going to head up to the Op Shop (that’s “Goodwill” to you Yanks) and pick up some fabric to start making a quilt. Yeah, I’m going nuts with the crafts.

  1. You were a brave little kid… The robotic animals at Showbiz Pizza used to freak me the hell out! 😉

  2. Actually they were pretty scary. There’s a picture of me talking to “Billy Bob”, and I’m clearly terrified. 🙂

  3. i think you’re trying to bait me. we all know that was the year you TOTALLY dissed your own sister by relegating her to the very *end* of the table with all the other dirty little plebs – and shannon godsey and nathan messer (of all people) got to sit right next to you. the nerve!

  4. You have issues. Besides, dude, I didn’t even remember their names until you brought it up. And hello? Shall I mention the infamous “ten-speed bike” fiasco??
