5 Question Friday

Do y'all ever get those "Getting to Know You" emails, where you answer questions like "what sounds do you hear right now" and "what is your eye color"? Even when the questions are repeats I can't help myself, I have to answer them and send them back. I have to. So, when I saw this, I had to join in. We'll see if this becomes a regular feature.

1. What were your school colors?
Red and White. I went to Robert E. Lee High School and we were called (duh) the Generals. What can I say, I'm from Alabama. Our arch-rival was Jefferson Davis High School. I loved high school and loved school spirit and (sorta) didn't even want to graduate because my senior year was the best time I'd ever had. Friday night football was a way of life ... and our team was State Champs my senior year which was stinkin' awesome!

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
I'm totally drawing a blank here. I've gotten compliments on a new hair cut or a blouse color or something of that nature, but the best compliment ever? I'd have to say any time someone tells me that Maggie looks just like me because to me, she is simply beautiful. So, I'll take it as an indirect compliment even if it's not intended :)

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
Cheap-ish. The good stuff (like charmin ultra-squeezy bunny-soft stuff) is too soft for Hubby, and I can't stand sand-paper, so we compromise on an mid-grade level of tp.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
Yep, for my 27th birthday. Yep, I was totally surprised.

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
Books. You can never have too many.
