Friday 5 for February 9: Rockit

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!

  1. What’s your favorite instrumental hit song?
  2. What’s a good movie with rockets in in it?
  3. In 1977, Voyager I took off on its very long journey, loaded with two golden records containing sounds meant “to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them,” according to Wikipedia.  The contents were chosen by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan, but if Dr. Sagan called you today (you know, from beyond) and said there was room for ten more minutes of music and he was letting you choose it, what would you fill the ten minutes with?
  4. What’s something you know about constellations?
  5. When did you last spend time in a rocking chair?

Thanks for participating, and have a lovely weekend!

  3. What’s there to look forward to in the next six weeks?
  4. Too early for flapjacks?
  5. If someone in a bar asks to buy you a drink (and let’s just say for the sake of the question you are amenable), what do you order?

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend!

Friday 5 for January 26: Returns

Sorry about the messiness (read most recent post if you haven’t!).  Your comments this week may need to be approved since I wiped out all the old data (which I hope to re-import in the near future!).

Oh wait, I never did explain what happened.  Several of my WordPress websites were compromised, and when you visited, they tried to install browser extensions to your computer and use your CPU to mine cryptocurrency (for them).  Mean, terrible stuff.  I haven’t exactly found the problem, but in the interest of getting back up and running, I basically blew up the old site and started fresh.  I have very good reason to believe that the malware is in the database that stores all the posts, comments, and users.

I plan to bring back the old questions and comments slowly over the next few weeks.  I’m sorry for the hassle and hope you’re all still memeing happily elsewhere.  🙂

  1. What was the last item you returned or exchanged at a store?
  2. When did you last leave the house and then turn right back around and go back inside?
  3. What’s the latest you’ve ever returned a library book?
  4. What location among places you’ve traveled would you most like to see again?
  5. What’s an unlikely movie sequel you’d like to see?

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello again, world!

Thanks for hanging in there with me. I’ve temporarily archived the old posts (eleven and a half years’ worth!) but will bring them back soon, once I’ve cleared all my websites of the nastiness this one is hopefully rid of.

New five this coming Friday!
