Friday Five

From caitirin's new community fiveforfriday.

1. What is your earliest memory?
I don't have many really early memories. I think the first one is being in my parents' room when I was about three. I was behind my dad, and he stepped backwards onto my bare foot. I howled in anguish and he was SOOO worried and upset! I was fine, though, once I'd stopped howling.

2. Has your favorite color ever changed?
Yeah. I don't really have a favourite colour, but when I was young I liked red and luminous pink and luminous yellow - basically highlighter colours. Now I prefer rich, dark colours.

3. What was your first favorite toy?
I don't really remember this either. My first toy was a rag doll called Katie, who I still have, who my dad gave me the day I was born. I loved her. Oh, and I remember being obsessed with my little garage with some cars and a lift with a bell and a...slide, basically, for the cars.

4. Do you prefer matte tape or glossy tape, why?
Matte. I don't really have a reason, I just like it better.

5. Too hot or too cold?
I'd rather be too cold - it's easier to heat up than cool down.

Today I'm piddling about in Excel. I thought I'd done really well when I found the option that'll give you a list of all the changes that've been made in a shared document since the last time YOU saved it, but then it turned out that if it's a shared document normal users can't insert new sheets, so that's no good to us. So basically I've spent a couple of hours getting nowhere, and now we're back to low-tech solutions.

I'm also subtitling a thing about the Edinburgh Fringe festival and its history which is a bit depressing, but only because I've seen more penises in the last hour than I have done in the previous...god knows how long. Heh. Mostly being squashed and having strange things done to them, admittedly. (Link probably not worksafe, but it's just the main page and doesn't have any close-ups!)

I have forgotten to set the tellybox to record Big Brother, which is annoying.

Ooh, apropos of nothing, I wanted to say thanks for mentioning the Veronica Mars series recently because I've just ordered it. It came to mind whilst playing about the other day and I'm looking forward to watching it now.

Haven't followed the link but is it those Penis puppetry guys?

Yay! Veronica Mars is great - hope you like it.

Yeah, the link is to Puppetry of the Penis. I wanted to go and see them for a while, but nobody would come with me...this is the problem when most of your friends are blokes :o)

There should be a quip to be made on the line 'nobody would come with me', maybe something about it being a bit tricky when it's tied in a knot like that, but my brain isn't working today.

Bugger, I wasn't logged in. That was me, by the way. Obviously.

My brother had that Fisher-Price garage and I used to love playing with it too :)
