Friday Five: Birthday, Redux

Yours truly had a birthday this week, and while we've done the birthday thing before, I'm going to do my best to come up with new questions...

1. "It's my party and I'll [blank] if I want to..."
Favorite way to celebrate your birthday (dinner with family? party with friends? a day in solitude?)

2. "You say it's your birthday... it's my birthday too, yeah..."
Do you share your birthday with someone famous? (Click here to find out!)

3. "Lordy Lordy look who's forty..."
Milestone birthdays:
a) just like any other birthday--they're just numbers, people.
b) a good opportunity to look back/take stock
c) enjoy the black balloons--I'll be hiding under a pile of coats until the day is over
d) some combination of the above, or something else entirely.

4. "Happy birthday, dear... Customer..."
Have you ever been sung to in a restaurant? Fun or cringe-worthy?

5. "Take my birthday--please"
Tell me one advantage and one disadvantage about your particular birthday (e.g. birthday in the summer--never had to go to school; birthday near Christmas--the dreaded joint presents)
EDITED TO ADD: This could also simply be something you like/dislike about your birthday (e.g. I like sharing a birthday with my best friend, etc.).

If you're feeling up to it, post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation:

  1. Yes, by all means, TGIF. We're about to celebrate an actual BIRTH day in our household - yay!

    My Friday Five is here .

  2. I Played. And suddenly I want to sing "Happy Birthday Mr. President, Happy Birthday to you."

  3. I'm done early, too. More procrastination (maybe that's what my paper should really be about). In any case, Happy Birthday!

  4. Again I'm playing on this far by faith, my testimony blog I LOVE this topic, though I hardly had time to do it (myself?!) justice.

  5. Hey everyone, I played here! Come on over and see why you don't want to hand me any sharp objects, like say, an axe.

  6. I played, fun to think about July in January. Thanks and happy bday reverendmother!

  7. I'm trying the for the first time. Hopefully it will work!

    First Friday Five

  8. My hubby just celebrated his birthday yesterday but I talk about mine here at Grace Happens.

  9. You know I wasn't going to mention my birthday on my blog, but the RGBP Friday Five made me do it! And just for that, I have a little quiz question at the end of my post. And if you really really really want to make my birthday a memorable one, I would like my site meter to go over 100 for my birthday. I know, it's not asking much since so many of you get LOTS more hits than me, but it would give me a cheap thrill :).

    Happy Birthday to me on January 7

  10. I just celebrated a birthday and I played here!

  11. I played.
    Unless you are old enough to remember "Indian Lake" or "The Rain, the Park, and Other Things", some of my post may not make sense to you.

  12. It worked, it worked! First time my linking worked!

    What a great unbirthday present.

  13. You know, I was thinking about my birthday just yesterday when I entered the dates for Presbytery meetings this year because my birthday falls during the TWO DAY meeting! Aargh!!!!

  14. And just for fun - RGBP's Trivia Challenge category for the next few days is People by Birthday - go cut your teeth on those questions!

  15. I played here.played. Almost on Friday.
