five {q} friday

I'm linking up with another new link up today! I've seen a lot of girls from blogs I follow playing Five Question Friday, so I decided to join today.



1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?This is a tough question. There are so many unbelievably supportive and deserving charities out there; it's hard to pick one. I think I would donate $500 to the Humane Society, because it brings me to tears thinking about puppies and other animals that don't have their basic needs. Then, I think I would donate $500 to St. Jude Research Hospitals. I know someone who used to do medical research there, and she has only amazing things to say about it. If I had more money I would also donate to UNICEF and World Vision, as I am hoping that the UN Millennium Development goals will someday be reached. 
 
 2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
I live in Tampa. I would welcome a snow day like I would welcome the heavens opening up and angels singing to me. Not having a snow day as a teacher while most of the east coast has had a second winter break has been rough. I didn't wear a coat yesterday. 
 
Here's the weather for today (don't be jealous. It's me jealous of you with your snow days!):
 3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
Are these real talents or magical powers? If they're real talents, I wish I could sing really well. I'm always singing, and I would like to be better so that people actually enjoyed it.
 
If magical powers, I would want to fly. I could avoid traffic, which causes me major stress, and I could always be on time. I could get places very cheaply.

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
I would say I'm between news and celebrity gossip. I check CNN.com daily, but I also love reading blogs and learning about who's pregnant, who everyone likes/dislikes on the Bachelor, and what Kim Kardashian is doing now. I would say it's an equal balance between the two. I'm not politically opinionated.
She's my pick for him. (And can you say Van Cleef?)
5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)
I love most kinds of beers; my favorites are IPAs, Kirin Light, and Stella. It's what I crave when I want to drink. I also love cider (like Woodchuck Granny Smith). Those two would be my favorites. They relax me whereas liquor winds me up.

I'm not too far from you in Orlando and know exactly what you mean about the snow days! I am so jealous of all these people getting extra time off during the winter. Would love some snow here in FL :)

stopping by from 5 Q Friday

I picked the humane society and singing too. I just had a stella the other night, I love that beer!!

have a good weekend.

I picked St. Judes as well. I want Brad to pick that girl as well. I think if he doesn't they should or might make her the bachlorette. I hope so. She so deserves someone Special. That Michelle girl has got to go. She makes me yell at the T.V. the things she says on camera. Like punching her arm and saying she will do that to a certain girl. I can't take her anymore. Kath'

It would be really hard to pick one charity, but mine would definitely be some sort of human rights activist group (although the humane society's a good one, too). As for beer, I like Blue Moon the best, I think . . . although my New Orleans beers (Abita and Dixie) are up there as well! I can't handle IPAs--wish I could.

Swinging from My Little Life:

It snows about once every 10 years in north GA. I am not happy with snow days!

And the flying... YES. I WANT!!!!
