Friday Five for December 19, 2003

I’m not a big fan of Friday Five questions where we just have to “list” things … feels like there is a subtle suggestion there to be brief … just list the answers and get on with it … heh … oh well, I understand the intent, let’s see how I comply with responding to these five questions calling for responses of five …

1. List your five favorite beverages.

Hmmmm … that’s pretty easy. I’m a HUGE java fan … I love the bean. Coffee is number 1. I drink several cups a day … mmmmm … goooood. Second would be water, I drink about 4 liters of aqua daily … in 1/2 liter bottles of Ice Mountain. Third would be orange juice, I don’t drink it often because of the whole potassium thing, but I do like it. Fourth would be beer, my personal preference being Anheuser Busch products (also the product of choice of Sister and Miss Daisy), though from many more years of hanging out with Singer and Hottie and snarfing an occasiooonal free beer out of their pitchers, I’ve acquired a taste for Coors Light too. Fifth is Dr. Pepper, it’s the best ! Gawd, you know, these questioons seem really familiar … feels like I’ve answered them before.

2. List your five favorite websites.

Well … first of all … my Field Correspondents are my favs and daily visits … which is where you should be now instead of reading this krap ! But since you already know I think my FC’s rock … and I sorta figure the goal of the question is to query a list of sites one goes to that are not on one’s link list, as to get to know your journaler better (but come on people, is there anything about me you don’t already know ?? :)) So that being said, I also won’t list the other sites/blogs from T girls and T boys that I visit … ’cause you know I visit those too … which leaves me with the following mundane list of my current, moderately visited non-t websites:

First of all, my favorite site is sort of the most boring, however, I simply could not live happily without it … Google. Google is second only to my light saber as my most powerful and useful weapon … ! 🙂

Second … let’s see, I’m a news junkie. I love current affairs, tracking world events and noting the hypocrisy of many, I read everything I can get my hands on … left wing extremist, right wing extremist, liberal, conservative, moderate opiniooooons and editorials … foreign country news sites that are in American/English/Aussie … I can’t get enough. I start my daily news scour at Drudge Report and visit it frequently throughout the day.

Third … I go to Bob From Accounting‘s site once or twice a week. You know, before becoming an attorney, I did the certified public accountant gig. So Bob and I have that accounting bond thing going on …. Huh? you don’t think we have a fellow accountant thing going on, but a fellow dweeb thing. Well, you may be right. Check it out though … it’s phreaking phunny.

NEWS ALERT !!!!!! I’m totally losing interest in these questions. I think that will soon be apparent. Continue reading at your own risk ! 🙂

Fourth … I know it’s soft-core geek, but I go to pcworld, techtv and palmgear fairly to check out the new electronic toys that are out and about.

Five … Yikes ! I go to trashy news sites like The Smoking Gun and Urban Legends more frequently than I really should admit. Gawd, I hope they don’t use that against me when I run for a judgeship !!

3. List your five favorite snack foods.

Well, I usually don’t snack much … I just save up until I’m really hungry and then eat lots of food. But if we’re talking snack things … I like celery stalks and always have some in my fridge; I LOVE gummi worms – they are one of my great weaknesses of candy-time; strawberry Twizzlers are a tasty treat too; I like frozen Reese’s Peanut Butter cups; and, last but not least … frozen Girl Scout Cookies of the Thin Mint variety.

4. List your five favorite board and/or card games.

Euchre, blackjack, poker, Monopoly and chess. Geezuz, no guy is ever going to date me if they find out I play chess. Hmmm … maybe I can be a pin-up girl for the geek set? *imagining*

5. List your five favorite computer and/or game system games.

Rocks honestly is my all time favorite, though most people know of it by it’s 80’s name … Asteroids. I still have special feelings for Doom. Halo still remains my favorite shooter game, though I’m looking hard for a replacement. I always have a golf game available to play, currently it is Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 for the X-Box. I really wouldn’t call it a game, but the Motor Course Racing Game here has totally amused me recently and occupied more of my time than it should.

  1. honestly, i have to say gross to anheuser-busch. yes, i admit it, i’m a beer snob. my preferences are sam adams or bass (and occasionally, a bit of guinness in the form of a black-and-tan), but lately, it’s been for just a simple corona. 😛


  2. ROFLMAO There’s an inside joke amongst The UnUsual Suspects about the allure of Mango juice … I don’t mean to be rude, but if I shared it with you, we’d have to kill you … I’ll just leave it alone by saying that Miss Daisy made an incredibly bold move for the purpose of a joke and it played out well for him !! I wet myself I was laughing so hard and there’s a picture out there that’s already a collector’s item. 🙂

  3. 1)Mountain Dew
    2)Chocolate Milk
    3)Beer (Coors Light &/or Miller Lite)
    4)Orange Juice & Sprite mix (spritzer)

  4. OMG !!!!! You know Leo ??? He’s my favorite !!! What a big teddy bear !! He seems so nice !! You can’t help but be in a good mood whenever Leo’s on the tube (ahhh, they really don’t have tube’s in televisions anymore, do they?) I will add though … Adam Sessler … X-Play … I won’t use the “Y” word that rhymes with tummy, because I get a lot of real life grief for my use of it, but I will say … yummmmmmm. 🙂 I so can’t wait to come out for a visit, it’ll be sometime soon.

  5. I’m so glad to see you’re a geekette, too!

    I see you look at the TechTV website. Do you also watch any of the shows? Do you know Leo Laporte? Annie and I are friends with him! He’s just the sweetest guy, and very much the person you see on the shows.

    If you ever get to San Fran, you can go see the shows in the studio. They’re fun to go to, but it’s just a blast to meet those people you invite into your home every day. Let me know if you ever do decide to go there.

    Enough geeking for now!


  6. YAY Anhueser-Busch products!! I love them so much, I have toured both the plants in St. Louis & Jacksonville (the give free samples at the end of the tour).

    My favorite beverages:
    1) Beer
    2) Mt. Dew
    3) Cranberry-Grape juice (a splash of vodka makes it even better!
    4) Coffee
    5) Anything someone has in their home when my beer runs out.


  7. i hadn’t thought of coffee as a beverage;
    for me it’s more of an intimate relationship,
    or a stage prop…

    oh, holy krap!

    i was supposed to meet Emily for coffee,
    wasn’t i?

    maybe she ad-libbed something…
