5 Question Friday

oooo. it's been a long time since I have done one of these. I am so excited that I forgot to use capitalization on my first two sentences and I am ok with that.  Really, I am.  I never once started to back space because it was driving me crazy. I am definitely not testing myself to see if I have the guts to just leave it there (because I most certainly didn't have the ability to leave the 'i' uncapitalized in this current sentence).  I am a geek.  I am ok with that.  It has been a journey to acceptance... Ok, I will get on with 5QF.

1. What were your school colors? School colors? Green and gold.  We were the Mustangs! We rocked!

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?

That my children were some of the most well-behaved children those people had ever seen.  Besides that, people really love my curls.  I think they are crazy for saying so but I guess my curls do have character (and their own zip code...)
3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
This is a trick question or, at the very least, a trick answer. I buy expensive toilet paper but, only when it is on sale (and then I stockpile) *insert evil money saving laugh here - perhaps Uncle Scrooge*
4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
 I have never had a surprise party.  I have never had a birthday party.  I know; it is sad.  You can cry for me if you want to.  Or you can have a birthday blog party for my birthday (I promise, I'll act surprised!).  My birthday is in the middle of August, you know, just in case you feel moved to have pity on me {wink}.

I have thrown a couple surprise parties for other people.  My husband was one.  It took awhile for him to get over that, as I had made my "lies" *ahem* tricks to deceive him into believing that there was no hope for even a birthday supper incredibly believable.

I have thrown two others for husband and wife.  He got me to do hers first.  She retaliated.  I mean returned the favor!

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
Ok.  That was tough.  I had to take a 5 minute break to think about this one.  {grin} Here is my dilema. My camera is literally attached to me most times of the day so that is definitely in the running but I am usually on my computer uploading or editing pictures or *ahem* blogging or facebooking (I have a problem - {grin}) so my laptop is a contender.  And then there is my cell phone.  I am constantly getting texts from friends and family about meetings at the church, get-togethers, "let all the prayer team know", stuff like that.  I also get ones that go something like this "I need a ride", "I have no money", "I need, I need, I need..." I am not as fond of those ones 'cuz I usually can't help much.  But I am getting off topic here in a big way.

Anywhoodles, in my 5 minute ponderings I decided that I am just going to invent ONE system that will make these 3 things one so that they can be my one thing I can't live without.

For those of you who had the same dilemma as I, you. are. welcome!

Now, hope on over to MamaM's and see some more fabulous answers! I mean it!  Go!
