Good news, folks: we have a new source of Friday Five questions!
This was suggested by Miss Kitty, who commented on last week’s post to let me know about another blog posting weekly questions: which seem much more interesting than “what would you take to a desert island” style questions I’d been getting from the original FF sites, so I’m going to go with this one instead, and just carefully ignore the fact that they’re actually supposed to be answered on a Monday. Whoops. Such a rebel I am, to be sure.
Anyway, here are this week’s questions, which you’re welcome to post your own responses to in the comments, because I’m nosey like that…
01. Facial or massage?
Ideally neither, to be honest. I’m so very shy and socially awkward that most of the beauty treatments other people find relaxing just end up being the exact opposite of that for me. I mean, being stuck in a room, in close proximity to a complete stranger, who’s also going to try to TOUCH you? It’s not exactly the shy girl’s dream, is it? If I HAD to pick one, though, I’d go for the facial, purely because massages seem so much more awkward to me, given that I’m led to believe I’d be expected to be naked for the duration. Granted, most of my knowledge of massages comes from watching Phoebe on Friends, though, so maybe there’s a fully-clothed version you can get: I wouldn’t know, as I’ve never actually had one, and am completely fine with that.
I have, however, had a couple of facials in my time, and although I’ve been left feeling fairly underwhelmed by the results (i.e. my skin has looked exactly the same as before), they weren’t too traumatic, and I got to keep my clothes on, so I guess I’d go for one of those. Under duress.
02. High heels or tennis shoes?
I don’t really need to answer that, do I? High heels all the way, sister! (For those of you who think I can’t possibly walk in them, there’s a post about that here, just for you…)
03. Big earrings or big rings?
Again, neither really: I’m super-lazy about jewellery, and mostly just wear my wedding/engagement rings and a watch (Which all have to be removed the second I set foot in the house. In the same way that it feels weird to most people to wear shoes indoors, it feels really strange to me to wear jewellery around the house, for some reason…). I don’t actually have my ears pierced, though (I know, shocking, huh? I just never got round to it, and given that I don’t wear a lot of jewellery, I don’t really feel the need to get it done now. I feel like I’ve probably missed out on some kind of female right of passage here, but I guess I’d just rather wear my money on my feet than on my earlobes? Everyone’s got their “thing”…), so I’d have to go with big rings, here.
04. Romance or comedy?
Horror. I know, I’m an awkward sod, aren’t I?
(If I had to choose, I’d go for romance: comedy has to be really, really good for me to like it…)
05. The ‘80s or the ‘90s?
The ’90s. Better music, marginally better fashion, and we had the internet by the end of them: whew!
