The Friday Fives

1. What splurge is totally worth it in your opinion?

Don’t buy cheap coffee, buy the good stuff – the morning coffee ritual deserves the respect – you’ll be happier.

2. What old-timey word do you wish we still used?

I have always liked the word “Gobsmacked.”

3. Without mentioning age or date of birth, how old are you?


I used to watch Gunsmoke reruns on tv during the day and new episodes of Gunsmoke when it aired on CBS.


4. Which celebrity could you identify just from their voice?

We play this game, starting in college, where you have to guess the celebrity voiceover for commercials. The most recent was Brian Cox for McDonalds.

5. What’s a TV series you are binging lately? what is it about?

I am just wrapping up “Psyche” and have started a rewatch of “Lost.” I think everyone knows what those two shows are about.
