Friday 5: Getting to Know You

Have not done this in about a month, but the questions are pretty decent this week.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

From the blog: Background story: Some friends and I were talking one night about smalltalk and how what most of us want is to get past it and to find out what people really care about. We figured that if you could come up with the kinds of questions that don’t violate social conventions (taboo subjects, for example, or questions that are too personal) but give you an idea of what really matters to the other person, you could jump past smalltalk and get right to the good stuff. Here are five that we thought might work! One of the questions is very similar to a question posted in October three years ago, but that’s okay!

1.What are the titles of the last three books you read all of?
Keepsake Crimes by Laure Childs
Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone by JK Rowling
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling

2. What are the titles of between three and five magazines you subscribe to or used to subscribe to?
The Writer
The Quill of Alpha Xi Delta
(I'm not a big magazine reader)

3. What’s on your night table? (we figured this one was borderline, since it involves the bedroom, but if the vibe is right and you preface the question with the background story I told above, you could make it work)
On top-- Lamp, alarm clock, radio, glass filled with pens, pencils, highlighters and bookmarks, a book I plan to read in October, Blistex
Drawer-- Flashlight and spare batteries, notebook, book light, lotion, memo pad
Open Bottom Section: About 30 books from the TBR mountain range. These are usually books I am most interested in reading at the moment, and tends to change regularly. Several suspense titles by Lisa Gardner and a couple by Nora Roberts at the moment. These will give way to mostly Christmas titles come mid-November.

4. What are the three best things that happened to you in the past seven days?
We finally had rain, after three weeks of dry conditions
Received a long letter from a friend

5. What was your senior yearbook quote, and what would your yearbook quote be this year if there were such a thing?
We didn't have senior quotes, but we did have senior wills (things you will friends). As that was eons ago and my yearbooks are packed away, I honestly cannot tell you what I wrote for mine. I think I willed Angie some pens...

Okay, I'm losing it. I just totally forgot what I was going to say. *sigh* lol

Ooo! I remember!

Anyway, carry on. Just wanted to remind you in case you didn't know or had forgotten. Now, I just I don't forget between now and then. *shakes head*
