  2. How strong is your resistance to sweets?
  3. How long is your fuse?
  4. What is the quickest way to get you hot (you know what we mean!)?

We here at the Friday 5 LOVE New Year’s Resolutions, but we’ll spare you all the self-improvement talk for this week, since we expect the other regular memes to go that way. Instead, we’ll focus on what you’re already doing well:

  1. What is one healthy food you really, really like?
  2. In what area of your life are you especially well-organized?
  3. Who is someone you’ve managed to stay in touch with?
  4. What bad habit were you able to break (or what vice were you able to give up), and what was it like going through that change?
  5. Someone out there, whether you know it or not, wishes he or she were more like you in some way. What is it he or she most likely admires you for?

Thanks for participating, and have a tasty 2007!

  1. What film did you think had the most annoying, maddening, preposterous, disappointing, or idiotic ending?

  3. How do you feel about your rear end? (alternate question for those who think this is just far too inappropriate: How do you usually spend your sitting-around-on-your-rear-end days?)
  4. Some people read the endings of books before they invest time, energy, and emotion into the rest of them. What are your thoughts about this practice?
  5. How would you like to end each day, and how do you actually end each day?
