Friday Five: Potpourri Edition

Today Will Smama presents these fine queries:

1) Your work day is done and the brain is fried, what do you do?
If the weather is nice, a bike ride is good. Marble is getting too old, but sometimes the neighbor's cat joins me:

2) Your work week is done and the brain is fried (for some Friday, others Sunday afternoon), what do you do?
I used to have time off in the middle of the week, but thanks to a brilliant suggestion by RevSS I switched some time ago to having Fri-Sat-Sun off every week. So this opens up lots of possibilities -- hiking, going to a movie, heading to Portland, pestering Offsprings #1&2 up at college, etc.

3) Like most of us, I often keep myself busy even while programs are on the tv. I stop to watch The Office and 30 Rock on Thursday nights. Do you have 'stop everything' tv programming or books or events or projects that are totally 'for you' moments?
It's funny those programs were mentioned! The only tv show I watch faithfully is The Office, and I just now started watching 30 Rock. (I also LOVE The Colbert Report, but it's on too late for me so I have to catch up from time to time on the internet.)

4) When was the last time you laughed, really laughed? What was so funny?
Last night on The Office, Dwight and Andy's little feud made me laugh.
I couldn't find a picture from last night's episode, but here are Dwight and Andy...

5) What is a fairly common item that some people are willing to go cheap on, but you are not.
This is a tough one because I generally don't like to "go cheap" on anything. "Cheap" usually seems to have a hidden cost.

Bonus: It's become trite but is also true that we often benefit the most when we give. Go ahead, toot your own horn. When was the last time you gave until it felt good?
I'm going to copy Processing Counselor's answer here because it's a great one: "Every day at work."

googled both pics

Hmm... I think The Office might be one of those 'love it or hate it' shows...

Wow...glad I'm not the only one who isn't amused by The Office!! :)

"Cheap" usually seems to have a hidden cost. Truer words have rarely been spoken.

I agree on the love/hate Office mojo. I actually found the first season SO uncomfortable but they seem to have tamed down Michael so you mostly just feel bad for him.

Thanks for playing.

So true about buying cheap and three day weekends. What was I thinking...being a pastor? ***tee-hee***
