Who knew there were so many ways to think about dates??
Songbird writes at Revgals, "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 like month at a glance on paper and use the free book sent to me each year by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. I did use a Palm for a while, when my husband had one too and we could sync calendars to know what was going on with each other. (Though I still liked paper.) I tried to go electronic again recently with a Blackberry Pearl, but I really don't like it at all! I would like to go portable electronic if I found a system I liked--which is difficult because I really like the month at a glance.
2) When was the last time you forgot an important date?
Apparently I REALLY forgot, because I can't remember! :)
3) When was the last time you went OUT on a date?
My husband and I go out to eat way too much, so I guess those are dates. Though now our dates include a third person....Baby Girl! :) So far she's little enough that she sleeps through a lot or else is awake but happy to just be looking around. She doesn't need a lot yet to be easily entertained. Maybe when she gets older we'll have to start "date night."
4) Name one accessory or item of clothing you love even though it is dated.
Um...I'm not too attached to accessories or clothing. I have no sense of style, so I'm probably never current.
5) Dates--the fruit--can't live with 'em? Or can't live without 'em?
Neither? I do enjoy them in my Basic 4 cereal, but can't say I've eaten many dates on their own--if at all!
Bonus ~ "What's your idea of a perfect date? I'd say April 20th because it's not too hot or too cold. All you need is a light sweater." ~ from Miss Congeniality (probably misquoted--but it's how I remember it)
Bonus Two ~ Is there a date each year that is particularly meaningful for you for any reason? For me there are a few ~ May 1 and June 22 and September 25. I haven't posted about September 25 yet--you'll have to come back then!
