Five Question Friday

Five Question Friday

1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated?

Don’t know about overrated but it’s not technically that important so long as you can write something other people can read. Just because you join up the letters doesn’t mean it’s any easier to read or quicker to do. Go with what feels comfortable to you.

I guess in the future, when we’re all wearing space suits and eating pills for lunch, the need to write stuff with out fingers may well be redundant. Won’t we have robots and stuff for all that?

2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?

Nokia N8A pocket calendar? I have a notepad beside the telephone and one by my PC but all my dates and stuff are sync’d between my Nokia and my diary on Outlook. I’ve seen a few people still using a file-o-fax like it’s the most precious thing in the world!

I really can’t bear seeing someone flipping through nasty pages in a book for someone’s address or looking up a date. Sheesh! Hey folks, get a gadget!

Actually I guess my Nokia is my pocket calendar!

3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)

Tricky tricky. I’d grab my phone so I can call for the fire putter out people, book a hotel room and call the insurance folks. My wallet would next, I’d need some cash and ID. Third, well I guess my laptop because insurance money can’t bring back years of written work and all my photos.

4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?

I used to live in the city, well, close enough to find it dirty, busy and full of distraction. When I was younger I liked the distraction but now I live out in the country I’m a more relaxed person. I still love going to the city but I’m happy that I can leave it behind whenever I want to go home!

I’d welcome the chance to spend time in a strange and different city to the ones I know, like Morocco or Singapore for example. The hustle and bustle would be something to enjoy instead of being “tutted” at by the entire population of London, lots of rude people there you know!

5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick?

NO! Reality TV is not good enough. I watched the first few series of Big Brother and really enjoyed them because it was something different. Okay there was that series on MTV called The Real World, but that was kinda naff. Oh and the series of Shipwrecked was watchable. Just.

I’m not a fan of reality TV, especially when it comes to seeing morons doing nothing but whine and bitch at each other. Most of it is staged or scripted anyway so it’s not that real. I do enjoy shows where folk like Gordon Ramsay go and give people a good telling off for being so incredibly bad at their own business.

  1. I’d welcome the chance to be on a Real Housewives series simply for the fact that I can show the world what it means to be a REAL housewife. Yes, I forgot to wash my hair. That mystery dish bubbling in the Crock Pot may or may not be edible 🙂

  2. We are surprisingly similar. On the rare occasion I have to write something other than my signature, I write in all caps just to make it simple for all to read. As for calendar, uh, hello, what do we have gadgets for if you are going to use paper for anything other then in the bathroom? I do wonder if I have the “3” items though — my purse has my phone and wallet, so, that would be one or two items? The only thing we diverge — reality shows. Nope, don’t watch, wouldn’t want to be on one, wouldn’t survive an hour if I had to be on one because all the fighting would curl me into a fetal position sobbing uncontrollably. I can’t handle everyone shouting at each other at the same time even on the news, forget about people I have to spend more then 2 seconds with, yeesh.

    1. Our kids watch reality tv shows so much it’s scary. I really enjoyed the first series of Big Brother because it was new and different. I watched the 2nd out of habit. I know. It’s a sin and I feel dreadful for putting my eyeballs through it. After that they all seem to be the same, an endless line of morons who think a few weeks on tv will make them famous.

      Although having said that I watched a series in the UK called Cops. It was more of a documentary than a reality show. TV crews followed police officers around to show what life as a cop was really like. Really opened my eyes too. Made me appreciate the police force a lot.

  3. Hmm, doh, I am still one of those rare breeds who use a file-o-fax. In fact someone gave me it for a xmas present 2 years and I was pretty pleased to find it when I started my own business so I could write the appointments. It looks pretty messy mind, my handwriting ain’t as neat as it used to be (I blame it on keyboards!) but I have found it really useful since I don’t have a super duper mobile phone thingy that does everything a PC does. I did have to get myself a basic mobile though recently, well had to for the business….so does that make me a country mouse then that technology has passed me by? Because as much as I love the country, I love choices you get in a city too, like places to eat and such like.

    One good thing about having moved to Canada is that I have stopped watching TV altogether! Bah, we have the internet, what use is a TV nowadays anyway? I will be sure not to purchase a TV when I move back to the UK. Oh and if my house burnt down right now, I would save my passport, which is temporarily out of the bank safe, so I wouldn’t have to wait months before being able to move back 😉

  4. Interesting!

    – Cursive writing overrated…? I don’t know; I haven’t seen it in yonks. I just think it takes longer (maybe because I’m not used to writing that way anymore.)
    – Diary? No, nowadays I use my google diary attached to my e-mail.
    – 3 items? My purse (which usually contains my phone/ID ‘stuff’/wallet, etc.), camera and laptop, I guess.
    – City mouse, I guess, but I have to say I don’t mind the country as long as I have easy access to a city when I need it. I want the best of both worlds – spoiled brat, maybe?
    – I’d have to go with Survivor or The Apprentice. Are those considered ‘reality’ programs?

    Thought provoking post 🙂 I liked it!

    1. I liked Survivor, well maybe the first couple of series, the rest like so many reality shows, Big Brother etc, seemed a little less raw somehow, as if the contestants were there for the fame rather than the experience. It was like a real life version of Lost!
