Five Question Friday - July 23, 2010

1. What were your school colors?
Black and gold - go Prospectors.

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?

 I was thinking about this today and unable to come up with anything, but then I heard some wonderful compliments from one of my coworkers. I will be running a workshop on libraries and social media for the libraries in my county in September and I am a little nervous about it. She helped me feel more confident about it by telling me that whenever I talk in our staff meetings she always feels very comfortable asking questions and for clarification. I really like the confidence my coworkers have in me. I just hope I can talk loud enough at the workshop for people to hear me - or that they have a microphone.

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?

I haven't bought toilet paper in months (my in-laws buy it) but I think I usually buy Charmin. I'm not sure anymore. Definitely not the most expensive or the cheapest at the store.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?

I don't think I have ever had a surprise party for myself. It always seemed like it would be terrible to be the person the party was for since you'd spend all day thinking nobody remembered your birthday. I think at times we have thrown a surprise party for my Nana or other relatives.

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?

Definitely my camera.


  1. Good point about the surprise party, although you could always pretend you were going to have a quiet party at home instead so the person wouldn't think you actually forgot! I don't know though, I have never had one! LOL!

  2. my parents threw a surprise party for me once when I was really young - I think. I just remember playing outside with my brothers and friends and then everyone got to go inside except me and I cried alot. not sure if that really happened though. may have been a dream. but I think it did. I threw a big ol' tantrum. but I remember finally being able to come in & everyone yelled surprise. actually, I think I have a picture from that birthday...hmm...
