Really? Already? or The One Where Its Time for the Friday Five

I'm having a hard time believing that its already Friday this week. Where did my week go? And why is it that on the weeks I have a sermon to prepare, the time seems to disappear much more quickly?

Well, thank goodness the RevGals keep me on task with the Friday Five. So, here are my answers.

1. What was the last CD you purchased?
Well, I hardly ever buy CDs. With the advent of ITunes Music Store, I tend to just buy single tracks. So, I'm going to cheat and go with the latest CD I've accquired, which is Carrie Newcomer's The Gathering of Spirits.

2. Did you like it?
Yep. I love it.

3. Is it the kind of music you would call your favorite?
Yep again. Chicks with guitar music, preferably with a spiritual bent of some kind appreciated but not required. (Think Carrie Newcomer and Indigo Girls)

4. What was the first album (CD for you youngsters) you ever owned?
Hmmm. We had a record player when I was a kid, but the albums were all sort of jointly-owned among the three of us kids. A particular favorite though was "Free to Be... You and Me". That may actually be the last CD I purchased too, since I bought a copy last spring. Our other favorite was a Bill Cosby record, but I dont' remember what it was called.

5. And what was your favorite cut from that recording?
Wow. Its such a great compiliation. I think my favorite from "Free To Be... You and Me" was either "William's Doll" or the title track. From the Bill Cosby album, it was definitely the Noah sequence.

"Bill Cosby Is A Very Funny Fellow Right!"

There's definitely a black hole of time for weeks that involve homiletic preparation. . .

Free to be you and me was mine too. And freakily enough I just bought another copy recently myself.

I also find Fridays rush in when the sermon is due but that is less of a coincidence :)

Being Shielded said...

My godparents sent me a tape of FTBYAM when I was about eight, but it got cut off at the story of the race. I've never known what happened to the princess who could run like the wind and the man who loved her.

oh! Being Shielded! Its such a great story! Its better told by Alan Alda... but, the princess practices every night to run the race - but the man who wants to meet her practices every morning until they can both run the race like the wind!

On the morning of the race, they start together - and they run the race neck and neck the whole way, until they cross the finish line together! The king doesn't know what to do - he promised his daughter she would not have to get married if she won the race, but promised the men that whoever won could marry Atlanta.

Atlanta and the young man agree to spend the day together. They share a picnic, and talk about all the things they love: astronomy, and birds, and traveling. They become fast friends during the day, but agree that they both wish to travel the world before they would ever marry someone. So, at the end of the day, they go their separate ways.

The story ends with "And perhaps they married. And perhaps they did not. But they certainly lived happily ever after."
