Five For Friday on Thursday – a Quadruple, at that.

(NaBloPoMo Day 19)

First off, it’s Thanksgiving here in the States, so Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating! I am so thankful for family, friends, and to have all of you in my life in some small way or other. In big ways, too!

I was going to attempt to do brunch earlier this morning, but after what has already a massive work week (for me), I was heading home and was hit from behind while stopped at a red light. To add another thing to my huge “so very thankful for” list is that the only damage done was to my rear plastic bumper. It’s scuffed a bit, but I think I can get most of that off. Unfortunately, her car’s metal emblem did remove some paint, but again…that sounds like something I can do myself once I’ve had a chance to get some touchup paint. I am so thankful there was no real damage, and that no one was hurt. However, all this excitement exhausted me, so I slept in this morning. Like, WAY in. And now I’m having to scale brunch back quite a bit.

Meanwhile, Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writer’s Workshop isn’t taking the holiday off, and I am happy about that! The prompt I chose was “Five Things. List 5 things we don’t know about you, 5 things you’re knowledgeable about, 5 things you know nothing about, and 5 things you believe.”

This is something I usually try to do on Fridays anyway (Five For Friday), so it worked out perfect.

Five Things You (probably) Don’t Know About Me:

  1. I was wearing seatbelts before it was the law.
  2. I eat my sandwiches in a circle – eating ALL the crust, then I just keep spinning it.
  3. As a young adult, I lived in the Mojave Desert for a few years.
  4. I secretly wish I was a great cook and homemaker.
  5. I know I’m in the minority here, but I’m really not mad that Robert Pattinson is the new Batman.

Five Things I’m (pretty) Knowledgeable About:

  1. Vintage dishes, barware and housewares.
  2. Music (that I’m interested in).
  3. Driving a stick shift.
  4. Natural housecleaning.
  5. DIY/MIY skin care.

Vintage Martini set.

Five Things I Know Nothing About:

  1. Computer programming.
  2. Flying a plane.
  3. Electrical work.
  4. Rocket Science.
  5. Brand-building. I have tried and failed many times, but I’m still learning!

Five Things I Believe:

  1. The power of positive thinking/law of attraction is an incredible thing.
  2. A higher power exists.
  3. An afterlife of some sort also exists.
  4. You should always do your best at anything you attempt.
  5. The Golden Rule is a pretty good one to live by.

This was harder than it looked! Now? I have to go cook brunch. I’m starving, and there’s nothing to just eat in the meantime.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Featured image is my own sad Mimosa (and by “sad Mimosa”, I mean 100% orange juice, as I couldn’t get the champagne open to make mimosas!), but it’s in a gorgeous vintage Berwick cocktail glass. How about that?

      Then you are in luck, because I am about to do a lot of posting (mostly just pictures plus whatever info I have/can find) over at The ReInVintaged Life. I’ll post a teaser or collage here linking to the vintage posts there!

    • Kim says:

      Thank you for your kind words of support. I am just so thankful the accident wasn’t any worse and am immensely relieved that no important damage was done. And I actually did brunch. The only thing that didn’t work out for brunch was Mimosas. A success, indeed!

  1. Kat says:

    That really is a sad sounding mimosa, but probably a whole lot healthier. 😉 So glad you weren’t hit too badly, but I bet that still really shook you up! And I loved your list! You can learn so much about a person through a post like this. I don’t know much about vintage glassware, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to see it on ebay!

    • Kim says:

      I love posts like these, and I agree – you do get to know so much about a person through them! The wreck did kind of shake me up, but I felt pretty normal not long after. It would be a different story if anyone had been hurt, or if enough damage had been done that we spent hours on Thanksgiving eve going over it with the police, etc.

      As for the vintage glassware, just keep looking on sites like eBay and Etsy – that’s how I learned!
