Songbird says" It's Friday afternoon, Eastern Time, and this is your faithful Songbird with a calendar-related Friday Five. 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? Must be: On Paper, Week-at-a-Glance, Vertical. And I had to go to the bigger format this year because they stopped making the smaller one. Which meant I had to redo the address book. Which so far has meant taping the little pages to big pages. Yeah, someday that will get done right. Sure it will!
2) When was the last time you forgot an important date? I don't remember doing that. I have forgotten an appointment now an again, an eye exam is the last one that comes to mind, but the planner goes with me, the post-it notes substitute for the razor sharp memory I used to have, and overall, I usually turn up where I am supposed to be.
3) When was the last time you went OUT on a date? OK, I confess, this is probably half the reason I went ahead and did the F5 at 6 p.m. on Friday....just so I could answer this question! That would be yesterday. And that would be not only the last time I was on a date but the second time I was on one in my very whole life. Well one that really counted anyway where someone calls someone up and invites someone to go somewhere and then it happens again and you have a nice time. And then you even plan for another helping! And another. Um-hmmmm.
4) Name one accessory or item of clothing you love even though it is dated. My long-sleeve turquoise blue soft cotton t-shirt with the dragon on the front. Bought it from the artist a gazillion years ago at some art fair or another. It's faded, it's soft and it's getting very old, but I love it so.
5) Dates--the fruit--can't live with 'em? Or can't live without 'em? Oh love them, especially those big plump Medjools. YUM! I do miss coops and organic food stores! Just don't seem to have those kinds of things out here in the hinters so much.
