1. Man, I am broke... so I haven't bought anything for myself for fun for a looooong time. But I did buy new ski boots and those allow me to have fun on a mountain =) Oh and the tickets to the Blues/Avs game I went to in December.

2. Four - one car, one house, two work.

3. World Peace. (hahaha, just kidding). Seriously, I wouldn't sell my soul. Whatever I want, I will work at to get. If I don't get it, I wasn't meant to have it.

That was deep, I know ;-) After you finish letting that one set in... let's move on.

4. I hate to copy someone else's answer, but I wish I could skate better.

5. Wine. (But only if I could share it with hot hockey players)

1. What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?
a nikon dSLR. because having a canon one just wasn't enough.

2. How many keys do you carry?
seven, but one is a key blank from TN that is bright orange, because... go Vols!

3. If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?
photography stuff.

4. What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?
to have everything i touch turn to gold. you wouldn't have to call me midas, though.

5. If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?
oh, easy: adventures. and if they're related to hot boys like wentworth miller, then all the better.

-What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?
Lisa Lisa's "Lost in Emotion" on iTunes.

-How many keys do you carry?
A bunch, but I only use two, for the mailbox and Apt.

-If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?
I don't have a soul, so I can't answer that one.

-What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?It should be, like to remember to pay my bills and stuff, but it's really more like being able to do a good Cartman voice.

-If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?
DVDs or hot dudes or well-behaved puppies. Or hot dudes holding DVDs and walking well-behaved puppies.

What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun? I don't even remember. Probably hockey tickets. LOL.

How many keys do you carry?
five: car, house, post office, storage, spare car key

If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be? probably nothing... but Shane O'Brien might tempt me ahhahaha... no, just kidding. Sell my soul to save another, maybe.

What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted? coordination.

If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be? autographed hockey pucks...

1. A bottle of nail polish for $1.67. The colour looks really bad on me and it goes on streaky. You get what you pay for.

2. Four. 2 house keys, one condo swipe card and a car key.

3. I guess it depends on who I'm selling it to, and whether I'd notice it was gone. Honestly, I'm not sure what I'd want so badly I'd give up my soul for. I wouldn't participate in a transaction with the devil though. That guy can't be trusted.

4. I wish I could dance. Not polka dancing but like...quality female clubbing dancing (did that make any sense?). Not too provocative though...I get embarrassed.

5. It's a toss-up between Ikea lamps and Peanuts merchandise.

1. A dancing S.J. Sharkie doll. He plays music, loudly, and dances from side to side (arms, not feet). Totally freaks out my cat.

2. 5 - one car, one home, one classroom key, one bathroom key and since I sprained my ankle, one elevator key.

3. I don't think people have souls, so I have nothing to sell.

4. To be able to stick with one train of thought for more than 3 seconds.

5. I don't think I should have the world's largest collection of anything because I am so disorganized it would take over my living space. But if I could keep the collection contained without much effort, I would have to say random hockey memorabilia; stuff with interesting stories.

Heather, Prison Break starts in two weeks!

What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?

A shiny new iPod! My old one finally went belly up and I'm pathetically reliant on it for all my commuting and work-out needs.

How many keys do you carry?

Two - apartment and mailbox. (Yeah, I got no wheels for the moment.)

If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?

A baby. The husband and I have been dealing with infertility issues for quite a while now and that's pretty much all I want in the world. Of course, I don't know how effective I'd be as a parent with no soul. (Now that I've brought the room down...)

What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?

Tap dancing. I'm as in awe of Gene Kelly as I am someone like Maxim Afinogenov.

If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?

Star Wars action figures. 'Cause I'm a geek like that. (I do like the autographed jerseys/pucks answers though.)

Or hot dudes holding DVDs and walking well-behaved puppies.

Margee, for some reason I kept reading this as "hot dudes holding DVDs and BAKING well-behaved puppies which was... disturbing.

A dancing S.J. Sharkie doll. He plays music, loudly, and dances from side to side (arms, not feet).

That sounds totally awesome even if sharks don't have feet. (I don't know, that bothers me for some reason!)

1.) What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?
Unfortunately, school has completely destroyed any concept of "fun" I've known before. The last couple of items I've bought in general have been, I kid you not, textbooks. I know, somebody hold me back. Well, I did go shopping last week with my friend and got a nice top for $16. I guess that counts.

2.) How many keys do you carry?
Well I have two separate key chains so here goes:
Hamilton House: Front Door. Fancy, I know.
Mississauga House: Front door, laundry room door, mailbox, side door and gate door.
Yeah, that's math I don't feel like doing.

3.) If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?
Well, being the good Christian girl that I am, the soul is not for sale.

4.) What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?
Just one? Dang. Well, I have absolutely no athletic ability so I guess that would be nice. I've always also wanted to speak more than 4 languages. And draw. Man, I can't draw.

5.) If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?
Probably CDs. You know, before they go extinct. Or money. Does money count?

I think Tapeleg has a video of that thing getting squished over at his blog.

Jocelynn said...

Oh, actually, the Sharkie doll does have feet. But they don't move as they are mounted to the base of the whole contraption.

Not so Friday Five - but I guess I should do it. And are we doing post replies or comment replies? Cause this is confusing! Head ass kicker is going to demand for comment replies and even add little bold comments on the top of each Friday Five day-post by HG.

1) Boy this came at a good time. I went on a spending high and wound up with a $90 (AUD so you guys can laugh at our weaker-than-CAD currency) Juicy Couture top that "was on sale". I can blame peer pressure but when it says "I don't want your love, I want Juicy" on the front and all you can think of is Jussi Markkanen I can only put it down to fate. And catchy slogans. Funnily I walked past one that said "I am what I am" and suddenly thyought of Sid the Kid. That boy does nto know how to stop annoying me!

2. Keys? I have the regular ones - douse door, front & back gate... old keys that have no use... My mum promised to give me the keys to the garage cause the dumps the unused shoes there but I never get my keys.

3. Selling your soul suggests eternal unhappiness. But if it's just that for me and it'll help someone else... I'm not sure I can live with that haha. I guess I'd sell my soul for good gourmet food.

4. I wish I could do that thing with the tongue sideways and um... My sister can do it and it kills me that I look lame trying to do it. If not that maybe I wish I could learn discipline& restraint.

5. I'll steal Colleen's answer and go with wine. I'm a sucker for a man with a good cellar *snicker*.

-What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?

As a student at U of M, the last stuff I bought has been food and textbooks. Not so much fun.

-How many keys do you carry?

Around campus, I carry two cards- one gets you into residence halls and the other is your room key. When I'm home or driving around, I have my house key, car key, and some lil keychain "gadgets," but not really- they just make it look prettier.

-If you had to sell your soul for one thing, what would it be?

I don't want to sell my soul! :)

-What is one talent or skill you don't have but always wanted?

I think photographic memory would be pretty sweet. My grandma has that, but I do not and it definitely would help when it came to studying!

-If you could have the world's largest collection of one thing, what would it be?

Hockey memorabilia. My room at home is covered wall to wall of signed Red Wings memorabilia. I actually have 8 signed photos that need to be framed and go up, but I don't think I have enough room for them all. But when I move into my own house (eventually), I'll have a sweet basement/den.

The last thing I bought for myself for fun was, um, a peanut butter cookie at the cafe down the street. I was away from it for 3 weeks, you can't blame me!

I carry two keys - house and mail. If I'm driving, I throw in the car key. I heard somewhere that you can judge the stress in your life by the number of keys you carry...

My soul is not for sale. Oh wait, it would be for billions of dollars so I could live in Mexico and fly into all of the Flames games, home or away. Mwaa haaa haaa...

I've always wanted to be able to be invisible. In real life, I've wanted to know how to play the piano.

I would like the world's largest collection of hockey players in my closet. Oh! This was supposed to be un-hockey related? Okay, I would like the world's largest collection of sneakers.
