Friday Five: The Righteous and the Seriously Screwed Up

Perhaps I'm a bit opinionated on certain things.

1. Mac? (woo-hoo!) or PC? (boo!)
Why yes, the Friday Five author reserves the right to editorialize!

Linux uber alles! (Alas, I'm stuck using a PC).

2. Pizza: Chicago style luscious hearty goodness, or New York floppy and flaccid?

Thin crust for me. If I wanted more starch I'd eat a bagel.

3. Brownies/fudge containing nuts:
a) Good. I like the variation in texture.
b) An abomination unto the Lord. The nuts take up valuable chocolate space.
[or a response of your choosing]

B. I'm a purist in odd ways. I like my chocolate chip cookies...without chocolate chips, so I can just eat the cookie part.

4. Do you hang your toilet paper so that the "tail" hangs flush with the wall, or over the top of the roll like normal people do?

Over the top, of course! Like all right-thinking folks.

5. Toothpaste: Do you squeeze the tube wantonly in the middle, or squeeze from the bottom and flatten as you go just like the tube instructs?

I squeeze haphazardly until there's little enough left in the tube that I can be arsed to make the effort to squeeze it properly.

Bonus: Share your favorite either/or.

Peanut butter first, or jelly? Jelly, of course!
Crunchy or creamy? Crunchy, though not so strongly as some of my other (not)humbly-stated opinions here.
Blinds open or closed at night? Open! So totally open.

This was fun. Much better to be ridiculously opinionated over small pointless things and save the thoughtfulness for the things that count.

Jelly first? That's just wrong.

Do they call it a "jelly and peanut butter sandwich"? No. The defense rests.

Good job on the chunky though.

I just posted mine--didn't see your link so maybe you just did it. Anyway I'm starting to crash after more happy excitement and too much driving, and the rasp in my throat is telling me I'd better get up to that dorm room and get some rest. Plus there's someone waiting for the computer.

Sweet dreams!

But see, if you do the peanut butter first, you can't get i off the knife, and then you wind up with peanut butter in the jelly. Whereas if you put on the jelly first, the residue wipes right off onto the piece of bread for which the peanut butter is destined?

See? All very logical. And THE ONE TRUE WAY RAR.

Achem. Pardon.

Sleep well!
