it's still Friday

Late in the day but it's still Friday so I give you the RevGalBlogPal Friday Five!

"There are two types of people in the world, morning people and night owls. Or Red Sox fans and Yankees fans. Or boxers and briefs. Or people who divide the world into two types of people and those who don't. Let your preferences be known here. And if you're feeling verbose, defend your choices!

1. Mac? (woo-hoo!) or PC? (boo!)
Why yes, the Friday Five author reserves the right to editorialize!

While I love the Mac in concept, pocketbook restrictions and the pracical issue of having worked in an all PC environment for 11 years has me typing these words on a PC, or to be more accurate a notebook computer.

2. Pizza: Chicago style luscious hearty goodness, or New York floppy and flaccid?

Neither. My all time favorite pizza is "PG County Pizza." It's generally square and generally greasey and can be found at Ledo's or Pizza Wheel, although there's a great difference between the two.

A close second would be Northwestern style frou-frou pizza from Pizzacato, Bella Facia or Oasis Pizza in Portland.

3. Brownies/fudge containing nuts:
a) Good. I like the variation in texture.
b) An abomination unto the Lord. The nuts take up valuable chocolate space.
[or a response of your choosing]

Nuts of course! Crunchy AND as a source of protein they notch up the nutritional value.

4. Do you hang your toilet paper so that the "tail" hangs flush with the wall, or over the top of the roll like normal people do?

I'm not sure that I'm consistent. I don't think I've ever given much thought to how I do this. I'll have to pay attention next time!

5. Toothpaste: Do you squeeze the tube wantonly in the middle, or squeeze from the bottom and flatten as you go just like the tube instructs?

My toothpaste that I'm currently using doesn't come from a tube. It's more of a container so it's not an issue.

For those of you who have noticed my writing patterns, I've delved back into the world of blog quizzes and memes which generally means I'm working through some unbloggable issues in my life. I can share that I seem to have found a certain amount of inner peace and groundedness which I am so very grateful for in the midst of the unbloggables. At the same time however, I'd appreciate a prayer or two from my bloggy friends if you're looking for someone to pray for. If I ever have the opportunity to pitch a new line of barbies, Sister Barbie is going to say "Novitiate is hard" when you pull the string. ;)

Peace Out my bloggy friends!

Hi Susan... it's been forever since I last visited you... you hadn't gone into the novitiate as yet. I have been through a tremendous time but just felt the need to reconnect with some people from the past. Don't know if you will remember me, but I remember you...
I am so happy your journey is well on its way and yes, for what their worth, I am sending some prayers your way...

Hi, Susan,

I came across your blog while doing a google search for Susan Rose - my name too.

I too identify as a religious woman - I am an Ethical Culture Leader (our term for clergy) and work with the Ethical Society Without Walls - www.eswow.org. Although I think our religious perspectives are probably very different, I also sense that we might have a lot of common ground between us.

I was so pleased at the several pieces I read on your site and especially happy to find the link to for One Million Blogs for Peace.

I'm guessing you know about SistersOnline.org which I think is a great social action website.

Also, for your Friday Five - my discovery on the toilet paper issue is that the two kinds of people are those who pay attention to making the toilet paper go over the top and those who don't care. I must admit I fall into the former group, but am still happy to be friends with people who don't care.

I send you good wishes.

Susan Rose
