Subject:Welcome to the Friday Five...
Time:04:59 pm
How this comm works
There will be a set of five questions posted each Friday by one of the moderators on both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth. Please copy and paste them to your own journal, answer them there, and then post a comment to that week's Friday Five with a link to your journal entry. If your journal is "friends only," feel free to post your answers as a comment in that week's Friday Five.

We do our best to get the question sets up as early as possible each week, so that all of our members have the opportunity to see them on Friday in their timezone. Most of our moderators do seem to be in the US, so please bear that in mind as they are posting up each week's questions.

Membership
The only people with posting access in this community are the moderators. This is mentioned in the user info. The reason being is to prevent multiple postings every Friday PLUS to prevent people from posting entries such as "here's my friday five!" The only place to put your friday five results is in a comment to that week's questions.

Anyone can comment to the entries and you are more than welcome to suggest questions. We can't exist without your suggestions for question sets.

Please leave your question set suggestions on LiveJournal or Dreamwidth.

Questions, Comments, Concerns
If, at any time, you are having an issue with something here in the community, please feel free to contact the moderators for assistance.



Thank you.

Your moderator team

It's a seemingly never ending task - grocery shopping.

1. Do you make up a dinner plan for the coming week?

2. Do you make up a grocery shopping list and stick to it when shopping?

3. What is one thing that you always buy, but never write down on a list?

4. Is there anything that you always think you are out of and come home with it to discover you already have a year’s supply on hand?

5. Do you get your groceries delivered?

A Friday of Firsts. It's easy to remember the big firsts - your first kiss, first love, first car, and so on, but what about the small firsts?

1. Do you remember when you were first addressed as sir or ma'am?
2. Do you remember when you first realized the difference between being childish and childlike?
3. Do you remember the first time you realized you were more adult than child?
4. Do you remember your first taste of major independence?
5. Do you remember what you bought with your first paycheck?

Time:04:48 am
It’s nearly time for holly, old St. Nick, and all the other bits and bobs of the season. Pardon me if these are mostly aim at Christmas, but it’s sort of a big thing around here.

1. Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas – which one do you use?

2. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater?

3. Do you celebrate the Winter Solstice?

4. Now that you are ‘in the know,’ what would you leave out for St. Nick on the 24th?

5. Tired of the snow and icky weather yet? For those fortunate folks in the other hemisphere, are you tired of the humidity and hot weather?
