Friday Five: Reverendmother's Swan Song


Well friends, as I prepare for the birth of Bonus Baby, it's time to simplify life, step back from the Friday Five, and let one of the other capable and creative RevGals take the helm. It's been a great almost 17 months of co-hosting the F5, but it's time to say goodbye... so here's my swan song.


On Endings and Goodbyes:

1. Best ending of a movie/book/TV show

2. Worst ending of a movie/book/TV show

3. Tell about a memorable goodbye you've experienced.

4. Is it true that "all good things must come to an end"?

5. "Everything I ever let go of has claw marks on it." --Anne Lamott
Discuss.


Bonus: "It isn't over until the fat lady sings." I've never loved this expression. So propose an alternative: "It isn't over until ____________________"

  1. I have occasionally cheated and posted the Friday Five on Thursday--and did with this one as well. I get on a plane at mumble-mumble thirty tomorrow morning and won't be near a computer, so everybody play nice, have fun and visit one another's blogs!

    And be sure to check out Thursday's post--lots of great RevGal reading coming up.

  2. I won't have time to play tomorrow, but just wanted to say that I'll miss your Friday 5's, RM!! You set a high standard of creativity and wit.

    Blessings on you, your family and Bonus Baby in the months ahead.

  5. Reverend Mother -- I wager this really isn't your swan song --- and said so on my Friday Five.

    I came,
    I saw,
    I played until the fat lady sang.

    However, thank you until you sing again.

  33. Thank you, reverendmother!

  39. Last one? I am so sorry I didn't know this was up Thursday night, because I so seldom have time to play on Friday. But it's a really, really good one, so I'm tagging along at the end of the line. Here.

  40. I'm such a newbie - don't even know if I'm abiding by the "rules" here, but I posted your meme- and wish you all the joy in the world with the "bonus baby":)
