Does the excitement of Friday Five ever wear off? I hope not. (And Pookie and I will pile on with happy birthday wishes for CapsChick!)

1. Pookie and I prefer all sparkles except those included in CBC's sparklewipe. Glitter is glitter is glitter, but sparkles can be anything. They are the Sergei Brylin of the decorative bling world.

2. Thursday was by far the best day. Pookie got to leave work early, we both got to take power naps, we enjoyed the hockey, had a tasty dinner, and our kitchen remodel made some seriously encouraging progress. Can't top that. (Well, I guess you can, but no other day this week did.)

3. Around 1,000, but every one of them is impeccably cool.

4. I have a recurring nightmare involving insects attacking me. Very unpleasant.

5. Pookie reads "The Shifted Librarian" and Lifehacker religiously. I read Slate and Television Without Pity daily, but that's hardly random...

First off, Happy Birthday CapsChick!

1. Do you prefer glitter or sparkles?
Hmm...probably sparkles. Glitter seems a little too "crayola-fun-pack" or Mariah Carey.

2. What was the best day for you this week?
They've actually all converged together into one big day since I have nothing to do each day. But I'd have to say Wednesday was pretty sweet!

3. How many songs do you have in your iTunes/music player?
Let's see...iTunes tell me I have 2129 songs in my library but I tend not to burn my CDs onto my computer so the number could be higher but I'm lazy and...don't have enough memory haha. It's a pretty random mix too.

4. Have you ever had a recurring dream?
Yes...and they're pretty darn random.

5. What is the most random blog/website that you read every day that's not hockey related?
I too, read Television Without Pity on a daily basis. It's brilliant.

3. like 500

YAY Happy Birthday CapsChick!
1. I think I prefer sparkles...they make me happy.

2. This week oh gosh I guess probably last night. I had a wonderful night last night. I got to leave early. I got to watch Scrubs I got to watch the game.

3. 3000 exactly and they are amazing!

4. I have a nightmare that CapsChick knows about...but we won't talk about that one.

5. Oh gosh something that's not hockey related...I am almost embarassed to admit this...but I got addicted to and now they even have a blog you haven't watched don't start it's addicting and you will waste a lot of time trying to figure out what the crazy writers are trying to do with the story.

CapsChick said...

Thanks, ladies :)

(And happy birthday ADF! May babies RULE!)

1. Um, I'm going to be wishy-washy and say both.

2. That's easy, today would have to be it. I love my birthday, can't help it, I act like a 5 year old...even as I get old and shrivelly and wrinkly and gray.

3. I'm up to 2000 on my super-awesome generic MP3 player.

4. Not really, and thank god. Babies flying across the ice...too scary to repeat...ack.

5. I get my celebrity and TV gossip online now, so things like TV Guide's Ask Ausiello and Watch With Kristin on I'll be honest though, until hockey season ends those tend to take a backseat in my daily interweb wanderings.

KMS2 said...

1. Both because I like bright shiny things.

2. Today. Friday is usually the best day because I only work a half day. (the other 4 hours are worked Mon-Thurs) Later today: Beach!

3. I have over 900 on my mini and more on my computer. I should have more but I'm usually too lazy to download more songs.

4. Usually it's the one where I'm either running or rollerblading down a hill and I'm going way too fast and can't stop. It hasn't happened in a long time, but I've dreamt it more than others.

I'm a personal finance geek and this guy gets it right. If you're ever worried about your finances, start at this blog.

KMS2 said...

one last random blog! It only updates M-F but it's hysterical. The writer posts about celebrity gossip and then makes fun of them non-stop.

thehockeychick said...

1. Neither. I'm sooooo not girlie like that.

2. NONE! This week has sucked ass! Ok, maybe Tuesday night since I drowned my stress in beer.

3. OMG, I have 2947 songs. Slackin' I know...

4. Totally. And Mike Modano just gets sexier and sexier everytime I have it... ;-)

5. check it out... trust me, you'll laugh your ass off =)

Hope you're feeling better Hockeygirl!!! =) And Happy B-Day CapsChick... even though you like a less crappy team than I do... ;-)

k.le said...

ooh, happy birthday, CapsChick!

1. Glitter...I feel like it's more subtle and not like giant flashing flakes of something.
2. Um...the weekend? I had a fairly neutral week.
3. I'm not on my own computer right now, so I'm going to hazard a guess and say around 400. I like songs, not artists, so I don't get whole albums.
4. Hm. I don't think so. I don't remember my dreams though.
5. I have no explanation for this, but It's apparently written (in part) by Mindy Kaling (from the Office)

2. Oh either monday or thursday, both days I got an extension on assignments.

3. fifty billion, my sisters share the computer so I nick their music as well.

4. I had a dream that repeated because I didn't like the way it ended up. I jumped off the balcony to land into the arms of Patty Marleau but preferred Thornton instead.

5. count? Damn it!

Steph said...

1. Umm...glitter if it is in glitter glue because I am partial to it ever since I made Elly the best Valentines ever.


3. A whole lot.

4. When I was little I used to totally have recurring dreams about Sonic the Hedgehog. No, seriously.

5. Uhhh, crap I don't know! I waste a lot of time on the Alkaline Trio's bloodpact forums because I am almost as obsessed with that as hockey...maybe.

hockeygirl said...

1. Sparkles. Hands down. But Steph is right on the glitter glue front.

2. Today. I had good sleep and woke up happy. I wore sparkly shoes. I had some really great chats. My lunch was delicious.

3. 4678 of the most random songs ever.

4. Yes. The main one started when I was 3 or 4 and I sit in a shopping cart, hurtling through space.

5. I read For Better or For Worse, Perez Hilton, Torontoist, and I try to keep up on Indexed.

(Thanks, Hockeychick, I'm feeling really great!)

Paige said...

It seems as though I always do this on Saturday...

1. Aren't glitters and sparkles the same thing? Sparkles do 'glitter'. Anyways, I chose sparkles.

2. YESTERDAY! I walked to starbucks after school with some girlfriends, then walked around downtown in beautiful 75 degree weather, then to top it all off... the absolute most exciting game EVER!!!

3. Amost 2,000, but I've only ever listened to about 500.

4. I havn't for a while, but I used to dream I was falling down stairs a lot.

5. Only my friend's myspace blogs.

Objectionable Conduct said...

1) Can't I have both? I mean, I'm the kind of girl who thinks that glitter and sparkles go together. I own more hair sparkles and glitter gel then most people will buy in a lifetime.

2) I LOVE Fridays. I don't usually work, I get to sleep in, hang out, actually GO to the bank (which for the record is open from 10 to 3 Monday to Thursday which makes it USELESS), and do all that other stuff that needs to be done.

3) 115 exactly. Unfortuantely I like to listen to the same song over and over and over again and eventually grow bored of it to the point that I can't listen to it at all.

4)I don't typically remember my dreams. At least not at this time of year. I blame my high level of alcohol consumption.


I am SO THRILLED that Paris Hilton is going to jail. Not because I think she's a whore or a slut (I hate those words) but because she's STUPID and ANNOYING.

leanne said...

Eeeek. So late. But better late than never...

1. Sparkles. But shiny objects are great
2.'s "last week" now but Wednesdays are always good. Wings and sports.
3. I have about 50 or so "CDs" on which music has been recorded. Otherwise, no idea, because I just stream from various sources. Random good.
4. Probably. But I never remember them...
5. The MOST random? Slashdot? I can't believe I'm the only person who said Slashdot.
