"It's not the honors and the prizes and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls. It's the knowing that we can be trusted, that we never have to fear the truth, that the bedrock of our very being is good stuff." (Fred Rogers)

I was looking for a "Friday Five"- type exercise to do yesterday, but my usual sources didn't yield any current question sets that I liked. Their archives, however, were full of good ones I hadn't done. Here's a cinema-themed set from April 29th.

Sorry for copping out with yet another meme (which is yet another Friday Five, completed my usual few days late). I couldn't resist this one, though -- it's about cartoons!

How could I have missed these last Friday? The LiveJournal version of the Friday Five *also* posted Shakespeare questions!

Six years ago, the Friday Five blog I sometimes refer to in these pages posted its first set of Shakespeare-themed questions on the Friday closest to April 23rd (the Bard's alleged b'day). Shakespeare questions didn't become an annual FF tradition, but there *were* subsequent sets last year and this year, both of which I've answered in the blog (2015's is at LJ / 2016's is here at DW).

And just for fun, I'll now go back and try that original set from 2010. Ready? Click! )

This week's Friday Five honors April 23rd as "the generally assumed birthday of William Shakespeare, based on records of his baptism and the traditions of the time." Like last year's 4/23 -themed set (which I answered here), the questions are all based on quotations from the Bard.

So, I started another Friday Five yesterday. Took me a day to finish, but here you go. The theme is "How do you do that?"

This week's Friday Five (well, one of them, anyhow) had the theme "Saturday Night’s All Right for Writing About."

Oops! This meme, which I fill out every year as December wanes, is coming to you a couple days late (though I did start it in 2015). Longtime readers with eidetic memories will notice that I have eliminated perhaps four of the regular questions; they were either ones to which I could never think of an answer ("What song lyric best sums up your year?") or simply ones that I always found stupid ("With whom did you talk on the phone the most this year?"). I've also added a question about live performances (since they've become a bigger part of my life), and one about weddings (since I actually attended one).
