Friday Five!: Friday, April 13, 2007

It's the Friday Five, everyone!

  1. Are you a morning person or more of a non-morning person?
  2. What is your favourite type of chewing gum?
  3. If you could go back in time to change one thing, would you and what would you change?
  4. What song makes you want to dance like nobody's watching?
  5. Do you play any instruments?
As a sidebar, have all of you voted in Rawk the Puck '07 yet?

Happy Friday!

Wooooo....hoo! First one, baby! See, this is what happens when your team is out and you have nothing better to do.

1. I am the definition of a non-morning person. When I was still at home my dad used to have to flick water on my face to get me up for school.

2. I love Juicy Fruit, but since I'm old and need to avoid the sugar, I like Eclipse spearmint gum.

3. Oh god. The experimental bangs back in 6th grade. I won't describe it more, it's too painful.

4. "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC. Don't judge.

5. I used to play the piano and the viola...because I am just that cool.

Our first Friday Five! How exciting!

1. We are neither morning nor night people; we're afternoon/evening people.

2. The first bite of the chewing gum in a Blow Pop that still has lollipop on it. The second and third bites? Wretched. Which is why neither of us have ever been gum-chewers.

3. We have few regrets in life, and after a little discussion agreed we'd go back to Game 7 of the 2001 Stanley Cup Finals. Pookie says she'd go back to strangle the Avs with their stupid "16W" caps, but Schnookie, a bit less belligerently, would just like to go back and show less hubris in the lead-up to the game. Perhaps if she had not been so convinced the Devils were going to win, the Hockey Gods would have actually let it happen.

4. "Frontier Psychiatrist" by The Avalanches. Neither of us are dancers by any stretch of the imagination, but this song is what prompts the most dance-like spasms whenever we hear it.

5. Between the two of us we propped up a handful of instruments in school orchestras (cello, clarinet and, because we're the same kind of cool as capschick, viola), but were never any good at them because we're lazy.

1. definitely non-morning. I don't understand how people get up at 6 am. No, do they do it?

2. Fruit Stripe!

3. Nah, that would just mess up everything else.

4. Pretty much any song as long as I've had enough tequila! :)

5. I tried to play the saxophone, but they started me on clarinet instead and I lost interest pretty quickly...

Ellie said...

1. Def. not a morning person

2. Orbitz Mojito Mint

3. Nothing

4. Another Night by Real McCoy

5. I played alto sax in the marching band : )

thehockeychick said...

1. Not so much a morning person, but I've recently started working out in the morning. So that is slowly but surely converting me.

2. Orbit Bubblemint

3. I'd make my parents buy the crap out of Apple and IBM stock in the 60's so I could own the Blues now.

4. Sexy Back - Justin Timberlake

5. Don't play any instruments, but I was in the chorus and show choir in middle school. I really should try out for American Idol... ;-)

Jocelynn said...

1. Not a morning person, though I am forced to get up early because of my profession. The cheery teachers that get there at 6:30 annoy me.

2. :( I can't chew gum anymore 'cause of my jaw. I don't even know what good gums are around anymore!

3. I would go back and be a Sharks fan from day one. I missed too much!

4. Just about anything from the Ramones.

5. No, tried piano and sax and was terrible at both. Tone deaf and uncoordinated do not make good musicians.

Jordi said...


2. Just plain mint.

3. Ma, I wasn't an accident :(

4. ... Anything?

5. Worst violin player ever. I did singing lessons though. hockeychick and I can both start lining up for Simon Cowell

Elly said...

1. I'm a morning person, for the most part. Of course, I define 'morning person' as 'happy to get up an hour after the sun has risen or any time past 8 am'.

2. Orbit. Eclipse is good too.

3. Um....can't discuss it here.

4. I love dancing, but I'm terribly shy about just about anything.

5. I used to play the flute, now I can't even make it make a sound.

k.le said...

1. Neither, although I am much better at getting up early than I am at pulling an all-nighter.
2. I like the pink Extra and the light blue Trident.
3.'s not for online discussion
4. Most fast songs...which is the only kind of music I like anyway. But, um...maybe Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne. Yeah, I know...I know. The first time I heard it, I was appalled for the first 10 seconds of the song...then I was like, hey, this is sort of catchy...
Don't judge me...I generally hate her with a deep and abiding passion. Really.
5. My parents tried to foist piano lessons on me, despite my clear insistence that I didn't like it. Six years later (with no progress), they agreed it was a failed experiment.

Steph said...

1. Definitely not a morning person. I swear it doesn't matter how many hours of sleep I get, if I have to get up before 10 at the earliest I hate my life.

2. I actually don't like gum that much...the best I ever had was this blueberry stuff from Japan, but normally I'd say Big Red.

3. Uhh...I had a huge apartment/roommate fiasco this year I might have liked to live with out. There are probably worse things but that's what comes to mind first...

4. Far, far too many to name. Usually I don't dance though. I just sing. Belligerantly.

5. Piano, drums, bass guitar and about a million varieties of random percussion things.

Ellie - Seriously, mojito gum? This might need to be tried.

Jordi said...

k.le: So you like Avril Lavignee's new song. Oh dear :)

k.le said...

jordi: shut up! i feel ashamed enough as it is...

Anonymous said...

1. No way. I love to stay up late and sleep in until about 10 am. Then I'm kinda groggy.

2. Trident White - the dark blue kind

3. I would go back to when I was 14 and choose better friends. Ones that wouldn't be such a bad influence.

4. Girlfriend by Avril

5. Nope

k.le said...

yay! support :D

Jordi said...

Pfft that means nothing, she's a ducks fan!

Jocelynn said...

Ugh, I very nearly turned off a hockey game I was watching via Center Ice because of commercials featuring that song.

I guess it is not as bad, though, as the Peet's Barista who admitted to liking 4 Non-Blondes.

Jocelynn said...

Yay! My Lucy picture showed up. Notice her stylish fin?
