Five Question Friday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 7:30 am

1.  What’s something gross you’ve seen or tasted recently.

I made salad in August.

I made it in the Salad Spinner.

We didn’t have enough room for it in the inside fridge, so I put it in the fridge in the garage.

Forgot about it.

Found it the other day.

Don’t want to talk about it.

2.  What movie this holiday season are you most looking forward to?

I can’t wait to take the monkeys to see “Legends of the Guardians.”

We’ve been waiting for that since we saw the previews this summer.

Real Man and I are excited to see “The Hobbit.”

We are enormous LOTR fans, and this is something we’ve been waiting for for a very, very long time!

3.  What makes one photographer better or worse than another?

Finding something in a scene that no one else sees.

I think it’s amazing when a photographer takes a photo of something so simple, so common, and makes it seems absolutely unbelievable.

It’s that vision…that eye.

4.  What specific, annual part of the season makes you feel all the positive feelings again.

It used to be the 11 pm Christmas Eve service at my church.

Something about the lighting, the candles, the music, the hushed nature of the service just made the magic come alive.

However, I haven’t been to that service since we had children, so I guess it would be on Christmas Eve when we track Santa with Norad.

The monkeys get SO excited to track his progress across the sky.

When they go to bed, they are positively vibrating with excitement.

It’s wonderful.

5.  What are your thoughts on eggnog?

It’s a drink.

It’s okay.

I don’t like the kind that’s spiked with alcohol, but the regular old eggnog is okay for a few sips once a year.

I wouldn’t make it a habit, though.


  1. Do you make your eggnog of pour it from the carton? We’ve tried making it. For us it was a nice thing to do once. The effort didn’t outweigh the benefits, so we now get ours from the carton and throw a little sumthin sumthin in it for the adults.

    When you think of pictures, are you a macro or micro person? Jill loves the micro and I’m a big macro (landscape person).

    • Micro…I love the small details. However, there are a few photographers who do landscape stuff (one of my colleagues) and I really love that, too, in the hands of the right photographer.
