The Friday Fives

1. What is your favorite smell?

The Cherry Blend pipe tobacco that my dad used to smoke. I have found a few candles with this smell and I always snap those up at the store when I find them.

2. What is your catchphrase?

Probably “Living The Dream”, spoken with a smidge of sarcasm. I have caught myself saying it a lot and an employee once gave me a key chain fob that has the phrase emblazoned on it.

3. What is the movie/TV show that you totally love but nobody else around you seems to know/like it?

On The Acorn streaming service, I am quite fond of “The Detectorists” a slow comedy about two blokes who scour the countryside with their metal detectors looking for old English war relics.

4. What is a hobby you’ve picked up recently and why did you start it?

I started studying French with the DuoLingo app. I took French for two semesters in college but have forgotten most of it. It is pretty fun.

5. What is something wonderful that happened to you today?

My cold is getting much much better. I was knocked on my ass this week with an ear infection.

Also, my car got stolen but that is not the question – I think I just needed to say that out loud.

  1. 1) I love the smell of freshly popped popcorn.

    2) I add to Roy’s “living a dream” with “nightmares are dreams too.” I seem to say this around 5-8 times a day. I know it’s corny but I can’t seem to stop.

    3) Letterkenny. I find it absolutely hilarious and have experienced this small town Canadian life.

    4) No recent hobbies. Just trying to get better at my new career.

    5) My diligence to the details of a patients chart called attention to a critical condition that ultimately the survey postponed until next week. Possibly preventing a horrific outcome if the surgery had gone forward as scheduled.
