Friday Five: 24

RevHRod gives us this Friday Five:

Yesterday I had the 24 hour flu. I had been told by the people who had it first that it really was a twenty-four hour bug. And so while I dealt with all the blech of the flu, I kept reminding myself that morning would come and I would feel a lot better.
This is certainly a strange way to start out a Friday Five but it made me think about what I might like to do if I knew it would only last for 24 hours. There are no reality boundaries to these imaginings. So here are the five things for you to consider...
1.If you could dramatically change your physical appearance for 24 hours, what would you do?

I think I'd want to be tall for 24 hours, just to see what it was like. I don't mind being 5'3", but it would be interesting to have a different perspective for a little while.

2. If you could live in another place for 24 hours where would you go?
This is such a hard question, because 24 hours doesn't seem like nearly enough. Given that, I think it would have to be something that I could explore in a day (maybe a Russian palace) rather than a city. Yep, I think we're going with Russion palace here. (Um, before the Bolsheviks.)

3.You get to do somebody else's job for a day...
I'd love to be in Congress for a day. That would be fabulous.

4. Spend the day with another person from anywhere in time and space...
Dorothy Day.

5. A magical power is yours. Which one would you pick?
Ooo-- I'd want to get beamed up. Schedule hour-long visits with a dozen far-flung loved ones.


  1. Ooo, I love the new look! You did smoe pretty fancy wiz bang stuff to get this working, you must have. Awesome. Makes me want to redecorate over at my place. :)

  2. great play, and #5 is just brilliant. beam me up with you. blessings.

  3. Great play! Love your #5, too. And I'm glad someone recognized Lazarus Long! Bonus points to you!

  4. "Please beam the tall congresswoman back in time to the Russian palace for her interview with Dorothy Day" Fabulous all the way around!

  5. wow from the russian palace to congress huh? some spectrum of choices there (hee hee)

  6. Ooh... good call on the beaming power!

  7. Your new blog page sort of looks like you are beaming up!

  8. I am also 5'3 and would love to look thinner by being taller. But I'd hate having to give that up after a day!

  9. What a pretty blog! And cool answers here.

    I'd forgotten about Dorothy Day.

  10. Gorgeous new look...and great play.

  11. Thanks for a great play!

  12. That beaming up gave a whole new meaning to the phrase. Thanks.

  13. Do think beamed up is the right way to go? Maybe flying? Just a suggestion.


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
