The Friday Five

This week's Friday Five is brought to you by the letter W.

Four things I like that start with W and one thing I don't.

1. Watermelon. The fruit, the gum, the candy. Love it!

2. The WILD. The Minnesota Wild.

3. Wandering. My parents called it 'dilly-dallying' and I was GREAT at it.

4. Whales, especially Beluga Whales. Who could resist those melon-headed, squeaking, snowman-resembling, blubber-coated darlings?

And one thing I don't like that starts with W:

5. Waiting. I am NOT a good waiter.

How about you? Got any W's?  Ooooo! I just remembered. I LOVE George W. Bush, too! :)


  1. I'm so with you on the need to check out the Twitter link I posted this morning. A woman writes about waiting and over night success....SUPER good! I want to get better at waiting. I want to embrace it....or at least be still in the midst of it and draw close to God.

    Yeah, I know. You're laughing. Even I'm sort of laughing. Embrace waiting? HA! But I'd sure like to try. :)

  2. Oh, ladies I could talk your ear off about waiting. I'm with ya on this one. But I'm learning. God's breaking me down for a better day.


    Like: Water. I love it. Being on a boat is one of the best feelings in the world!

    Dislike: Whining. I'm just not so good with it--doing it or hearing it.

  3. Erica, how could you forget Westerns in your list? I also like Belgian waffles. Don't care much for Wispride, the nasty, spreadable cheese.

  4. W likes: weddings, whales, my favorite whale is the orca, and I like CJ's wordless Wednesdays and I like the phrase willy nilly.

  5. I think you forgot a W... Wendy!! (Right, Wendy Miller?)

    Hehe, I gotta go with I like WATER. In NC I even talked Jon into getting us an aquarium cause I missed being near water.
    Dislike? maybe when WIND knots up my hair?

  6. Wagon wheel romances--I love settlers! My lovely crit. partner, Wendy, and Wipeout. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I like warmth, both temperature-related and that which I feel when I connect with my friends.

    I dislike worms, especially the gargantuan ones I encountered when I was in Washington state years ago. Our California worms are but anorexic shadows of their northern neighbors. What Washingtonians call worms, I was tempted to refer to as snakes. They are BIG. Seriously big. Hmm. I wonder if that makes for more successful fishermen in the Evergreen State?

  8. OK, this is a challenge. I love water, watermelon, the wacky pack stickers from my childhood, expensive wallets (preferably with money in them) and I don't like the smell of a wet dog. =)

  9. Like CJ I love waffles. Like Linda I love the words willy nilly (it applies to sooo many things around here.)

    I don't really like water and being wet. If I could pay someone to shower for me that would be so awesome. Think how much time I could save!

    Hey, you're almost to the end of the alphabet!
