Friday Five

1. List five things you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year. Hmm. I've got a couple of writing projects I'd like to get finished. I need to get my Christmas shopping done, obviously. I'd kind of like to clean up and organize all the junk in the computer room, but I kind of doubt that's going to happen. I'd like to manage not to get any farther behind on my DVD-watching, though with everything that's coming out before the end of the year, that's probably not very likely, either. Is that five things?

2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again. Well, I'm not going to name names, but let's see... There's a couple of people from college who qualify, one of whom I've been in sporadic communication with since, and one of whom I haven't. I suppose there's a person or two from high school I'd be pleasantly surprised to get an e-mail from. And some part of me is suggesting adding my ex to the list, if only because I sometimes wonder how he's doing, but it's probably just as well if I ignore that thought...

3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do. Web programming. Taking screen captures from my computer's DVD drive (although I think I'd need extra software for that). Editing video on the computer. Umm... You know, I can't think of any more. At least, not anything particularly realistic, or that I'd enjoy learning how to do, rather than just miraculously knowing how to do and being good at it. I guess I'm just not very ambitious.

4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit). Quit my job. Ditch the crappy trailer I'm living in and get a decent house. With a library. Go on a spending spree at Amazon and buy several thousand dollars worth of DVDs and CDs. Go to science fiction conventions in England. A week or two ago, I probably would have said, "Give several million dollars to the Henson company to help them make more Farscape," but they seem to have that covered now.

5. List five things you do that help you relax. Take a hot bath. Read a good book. Drink tea (preferably peppermint). Listen to Pachelbel's Canon in D (aka the only classical tune I'll actually cross the street to listen to). Pet a purring cat.
