fridayfive #7

It's time for the fridayfive!

When you go to the beach, lake, or pool, are you more likely to lower yourself gradually into cold water or to take a determined plunge and get it over with?
If it's a pool, I lower myself gradually. Beach/lake/ocean, wade in until about waist-deep and then just dive in. Man, I miss swimming in natural water sources.

How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other tasks or ordeals?
I like having kind of a loose plan in my head when I go to approach a task. Of course, my ADD dictates I'll be sidetracked twenty minutes into it, and have to make a conscious effort to go back to the original task. Unlike?

When someone gives you flowers, are you more likely to let them turn completely brown and gross before throwing them out, or to discard them the moment they take on that sick-flower look?
Completely brown and gross. I hate throwing flowers out; they're so pretty, I love them so, and I get so few.

How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other gifts, purchases, or relationships?
I've been through too much and through too many moves to be a packrat. Yes, I admit to keeping things out of sentimentality (like my baptism candle, or the article that informed me of Tim's death), but the majority of it gets junked. So, unlike, I guess. Flowers are special though, it's a bad comparison!

Think of your favorite movie (or a movie you really like, if you can’t think of a favorite). Some people say that the reasons you love your favorite movie are related to what you value in romantic relationships. How is this true or untrue in your case?
I guess that would be Pride & Prejudice? Not sure how it relates to my love life, except I value family ties, and quick witty dialogue between two people. (give me a break here guys, its 630am).

I am the same way with the flowers, except that in my case it's more about laziness than about being reluctant to part with the beautiful flowers.

I will have to do this when I catch back up on the gazillion journal entries I missed while I was away...I only read yours and Chrissy's while I was gone lol.

Kelly - no, thankfully, its just slowly fading away. however, if it had actually been bright sun that day, I'd be peeling like a mofo (and swearing like one too) by now. So, all things considered, I'm just grateful that it WASN'T bright and sunny that day, because I've had some real doozys of sunburns in my time and have a family history of early skin cancer on top of that. I really should be more careful :(

Heather - oddly touched by that. thanks.

Jess - if i knew how to actually dry flowers and if I had a place to PUT them (and keep them clean(ish), would do it in less than a heartbeat. My love for flowers borders on slight obsession :P
