Friday Five, Mamas!

| | Comments (8)

No new Friday Five today, so I picked one from this time last year:

1. If you had the chance to meet someone you've never met, from the past or present, who would it be?

2. If you had to live in a different century, past or future, which would it be?

3. If you had to move anywhere else on Earth, where would it be?

4. If you had to be a fictional character, who would it be?

5. If you had to live with having someone else's face as your own for the rest of your life, whose would it be?

I'll answer in comments boxes along with ya'll.


1. Meet someone? Jesus! If that's not possible, Peter or Paul, or my "go-to" girl, Martha.

2. Live in a different century? Never wanted to go back OR forward, so I can't really answer this one. If I had to, maybe late 1700's to early 1800's. Not very far back.

3. Move somewhere else? New Zealand. One of my good friends just got back. She says its the most beautiful place she's ever been. I'll take her word for it.

4. Be a fictional character? Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird. Especially if Atticus really looks like Gregory Peck.

5. Someone else's face? Yike! Can't pick any of the young hotties around today, who knows what they'll look like at MY age? I suppose Jamie Lee Curtis. Somebody attractive in a quirky way.

1) Meet some I've never met: John Adams

2) What century other than our own: 18th

3) Move anywhere: Ireland

4) What fictional character would I be: Jack Aubrey

5) Whose face on my head: a young Jeremy Irons, I'd take better care of the face than he has.

1) My Grandpa Stock who died 5 years before I was born.

2) 6th Century -- maybe because TV stations back then showed the "Hun Invasion Index" on the corner of the screen

3) Bochum, Germany -- Tief inm Westen wo die Himmel gestaubt! But then, I am afraid I would forget to speak in German and start talking in Spanish.

4) Ignatius J. Reilly minus some of those pounds.

5) Tough question -- can I simply ask for a smaller head size?

Dear Terry:

Meet someone: I'll exclude Jesus, which is what I would choose, except that on a technicality I've already met Him. So, William Shakespeare.

Different Century: Either the 17-18th or the the 32nd-33rd (some future date)

Anywhere else on Earth? Easy. Tavarua, Fiji

Fictional Character: Gully Foyle of The Stars. My Destination

Another face--in tribute--that of the most wonderful and beautiful person I know--my wife--assuming she could keep it also. Too bad I cannot better reflect more than the exterior.



1. His Holiness, Pope John Paul II. he doesn't even have to speak, just hold me a minute or two.
2. iffin i can squeak by on a technicality -- the twentieth century. central heating and air is a requirement.
3. west TEXAS, as opposed to northeast TEXAS.
4. sally brown.
5. paulette goddard

1.Princess Diana.
2.1940''s a different century...isn't it.
4.Elizabeth Bennet...
5.Andie MacDowell or Christy Brinkley...not their lives...just their faces...

1. Well, if you took Christ off the table, I'd love to sit down for coffee with the Apostle John.

2. Despite its imperfections, I think we are lucky to live when we do. That being said, I think living in Middle Ages would be interesting, albeit dangerous.

3. I'd love to be an American in Ireland.

4. To be honest but geeky, I'd be Harry Potter. He and I have lots in common.

5. I'm stumped on this one. I guess seeing how gracefully TV's Dick Clark has aged over the years, I'd have to go with his. Lots of those who are young and handsome now aren't likely to hold those looks for long.

1. St. Paul - I'd really like him to clarify a few things.
2. Late 19th or early 20th century. I'd make quite the Victorian/Edwardian gentleman.
3. I'll take Manhattan.
4. Easiest of all these questions - Gandalf.
5. How's about Peter O'Toole.
