Friday Five: All About DATES

From Songbird at the Revgals, we have a Friday Five all about dates:

It's Friday afternoon, Eastern Time, and this is your faithful Songbird with a calendar-related Friday Five. Due to some confusion with our dates, I'm stepping in today, although I am usually here only on the 5th Friday, when there is such a thing.

Here are five things to ponder about dates. I hope you'll play!

1) Datebooks--how do you keep track of your appointments? Electronically? On paper? Month at a glance? Week at a glance?

I have an Outlook calendar at work that keeps track of all the work stuff, and a big black daytimer that keeps track of both the work stuff and the home stuff, and my husband and I share a Google Calendar to keep track of each other!

2) When was the last time you forgot an important date?

Hmmm... I'm not sure about an IMPORTANT date, but I have forgotten a couple of meetings in the last little while. It's the downside of having such a particular system for keeping track of meetings... when the meetings don't make it into the system, they get forgotten!

3) When was the last time you went OUT on a date?

WH and I go out on dates quite a lot; just the other night, we had a Boston Pizza date night.

4) Name one accessory or item of clothing you love even though it is dated.

I used to have a gigantic pair of hoop earrings in the shape of peace signs, which I loved and wore long after they were en vogue. I eventually gave them to the church rummage sale, where they were purchased by a pre-teen girl in the congregation, who wore them the next Sunday! I was proud!

5) Dates--the fruit--can't live with 'em? Or can't live without 'em?

LOVE 'EM!

Isn't it great how things come back in style! Or how young people develop their own style -- even better.

Great play! I'm like that...if it's not written down on the calendar, I'm not doing it/going to it and it's not going to get done.

I HAD those earrings and thought they were just the coolest things. Wonder what ever happened to them......

Great story about the earrings! My Outlook diary is also unreliable when I don't enter in the event :-)
