5 X 5

Sunday, February 28, 2010

I woke up today (late, as usual on the weekends, the alarm went off and my body cringed and denied that one could set an alarm on the weekend) and freaked out at the amount of work I have still to do this weekend. And I really wanted to post something too, but I was afraid that any time given to my blog would be too much time away from the mountain of schoolwork I have (as, yes, it does take me too much time to cleverly weave my words). But then, while eating my breakfast and reading over some new posts this morning I found out I had been tagged in this fun little game by my fellow New England native Sam, from Life is Beautiful. (ps. you really ought to check out her blog!) It's sort, it's sweet, and it will let me write here and write the 3.5 other papers on the docket for today (yes, you did read that number of papers right).

So, here we go! 5 simple questions that need 5 answers each!
