Friday 5 for February 26: A clubhouse ain’t nothin’ but a sandwich

Hello! And welcome! To this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

I’m on the Clubhouse app, and while I still haven’t participated the way it’s intended, I do drop in once in a while to eavesdrop. If you remember those 1-900 voice chat numbers in the U.S. in the 90s, it’s like that. People set up rooms, often themed by conversation topic, and you drop in and chat with them, or you just listen while others chat.

Since I kind of hate talking on the phone, I don’t see why I’d want to talk into an app on my phone with strangers around the world, but the app’s popularity is undeniable, so I’m here for the ride just to see where it goes. After all, when Twitter started, most of us asked, “Why would I want to do that?” and look where it is now.

It’s iPhone-only for now, and you need to be invited. So if you’re curious (no obligations, I swear), say so in your comment and I’ll send an invite to the email address attached invisibly to your comment. If you’re already on and want to exchange follows, I’m @scrivener.

  1. What is the longest you ever spent on the phone on one call?
  2. When you were a teen, how important was the phone in your daily life?
  3. How much do you use the actual telephone function of your phone today?
  4. How well do you handle phone calls at work?
  5. What are some good telephone-themed songs?

Thanks for participating! And have a wonderful, safe weekend!
