No Friday Five this week, so once again I went back into the 'archive', aka the first and early posts to the comm. This is the second ever set of questions posted, from May, 2004.

1. What's a song you would enjoy screaming along to as you drive down the motorway?
You know, this is difficult, because I don't listen to music while driving. There is only one CD in the car, which is a mix CD made by DJ years ago and which he sometimes plays when he is in the driving seat. So if I put it on, I know all the words, I have heard it so often, but I really, really don't know who any of the artists are, or the names of the songs. And I can't even google the lyrics to find out, because without the prompt of the CD playing, I can't remember any of them. I do realise that this makes me a musical Luddite/Neanderthal, but *shrugs* I can't bring myself to care *g*

2. What is your favourite place/type of environment to relax?
Now that one is easy - right here, where I am now. A soft chair in my own home, with DJ and my laptop, or a book, or the TV on. Yep, that is perfect, thanks. Pass me that gin and tonic, would you?

3. What are the best kind of dreams?
Are we talking sleep dreams here, or the kind of dreams people have for their future?
Sleep dreams: Good ones, obviously. Thankfully, I very rarely suffer from nightmares. I dream in colour, and sometimes with texture. (I had a very nice dream once in which I kissed someone and could feel every moment on my lips. Mmm... *g*) I like dreams that are populated by people I know and take place in familiar surroundings, just slightly twisted, because my dreams usually have a narrative. It may not make much sense, upon review, but at the time... Yes, Mad Hatter's Tea Party type dreams.
Ambition dreams: Easy - to retire *g* I don't want to wish my life away, but I am counting backwards.

4. What do you look for in a mate?
I am going take 'mate' to mean close friend, rather than sexual partner.
I think they need to be tolerant (to put up with my foibles), intelligent (because I am not very good at suffering fools, gladly or not), a good conversationalist (to make up for my lack of social skills) and... just fun to know. Luckily, I have three of those *g* and I live with one of them, which is good.

5. If you were a crayon colour, what colour would you be and why?
The problem with these sorts of questions is I am always drawn to thinking about what colour I like best, what kind of car would I really love to have, what's my favourite sandwich, etc, etc.
How can I tell what colour I am? Surely that is something only someone else can tell, because colour is an external characteristic and I can't see my own outside.

In other news, I have no idea what to do for this week's [ profile] photo_scavenger prompt. I used to have a tin full of coins from various countries, left over from holidays, but where it is now... I don't know. I'll have to think of something else.

Your sleep dreams sound amazing.

In packing house I have run into a 1960's candy tin of random foreign coins that neither the mister or I remember gathering up. I think there must be one hiding in every household.

I do quite enjoy my sleep dreams; the issue is catching them first thing, so I can remember them in more than just snatches. I am nowhere near as good at that, as [ profile] trepkos is *g*

*g* You may well be right. In which case, mine is hiding very well. And you are right about the age of the tin. I can picture it now and it is definitely a 1960s biscuit tin.

to make up for my lack of social skills
I have never thought of you lacking in social skills!

Seems like the Friday five is a little intermittent which is a shame isn't it. Good choice of questions though.

That is sweet of you, but I am terribly tongue-tied in most social situations - I tend to sit and watch at parties.

It does, doesn't it. And it is. But it seemed like such a good idea, I have decided to keep working forward from the start, if there are no prompts in the week.
