Friday Five: When is the Fourth Friday not the Last Friday?

It's Friday afternoon, Eastern Time, and this is your faithful Songbird with a calendar-related Friday Five for the RevGalBlogPals. Due to some confusion with our dates, I'm stepping in today, although I am usually here only on the 5th Friday, when there is such a thing.

Here are five things to ponder about dates. I hope you'll play!

1) Datebooks–how do you keep track of your appointments? Electronically? On paper? Month at a glance? Week at a glance?

I still keep a Month-at-a-Glance paper calendar, published by the United Church of Christ. I love mine. I like the reminders the computer will give me, but I love being able to look at the whole month so easily. I only consider changing when I forget to open "my book" and wonder if I don't need the electronic reminders more than I thought.

2) When was the last time you forgot an important date?

When I double-booked seeing my therapist and going to my clergy support group. Yes, I am all about teh self care…

3) When was the last time you went OUT on a date?

Let's see. Before the New Church training, but sometime this month. Pure Luck and I usually get out somewhere together on Friday nights, although this past month we've had company, or we've been inclined to order in to facilitate watching an old favorite show of his on DVD. (It's Babylon 5, can you stand it?)

4) Name one accessory or item of clothing you love even though it is dated.

I have a cute, flowered dress with shoulder pads. Need I say more? Okay, circa 1995. I won't wear it (although I'm excited it fits again!), but I will try it on and "ooh" and "aah" over it.

5) Dates–the fruit–can't live with 'em? Or can't live without 'em?

Bleh, definitely can't live with them. Bleh.

  1. Fun play, Songbird. I watched all the reruns of Babylon Five when I was lying on the couch sick and pregnant with Katie, and I loved them.

  2. Wear that dress!! Even just at home. And I’ve yet to discover Babylon 5. It’s on my list.

  3. No idea what this Babylon 5 might even be. Since I have 436 items in my netflix queue, I will try not to find out! I used to love the UCC calendar when I was the church newsletter editor. And as a church secretary, loved the Lutheran and Methodist calendars too!

  4. lovin’ remembering the shoulder pads of the 90’s…come to think of it, I have a turtleneck with shoulderpads that I still have…

  5. I think I watched 5 minutes of Babylon 5 one night….
    I love teh double booking self-care events — I think there is wisdom in it somehow.

  6. The double booking gave me a wry smile too. And congrats on fitting into the dress! Well done

  7. Smiling at you trying on the dress you will never wear out again, just to ooh and aaah! 😀
    And your picture for today’s Friday Five made me laugh. Thank you.

  8. I’ll bet the dress would be pretty for the TV date with Pure Luck!! I miss floral dresses with shoulder pads… although I would not fit into any of mine

  9. This was fun. My son and I enjoyed Babylon 5 when it was first one. He had a houseplant he named after one of the lead characters, Bruce Boxleitner’s wife — can I remember names??? Dates I remember, names?

  10. Ah, shoulder pads… I think I still have some lurking in my closet, too!
