friday 5: mementos

a friend of mine does this great thing on her blog called friday 5. each friday, five questions are posted by friday 5 and bloggers are encouraged to share their answers on their blogs in hopes that people will "put something down that might help them understand themselves better, or at least make it to tomorrow". lovely! let's go  :)

1.  Do you still have your senior yearbook? Where is it?
of course! it's at my parents' place back home. when i flip through it, i barely look at the photos. i read through the messages that people left. my girlfriends (still my best friends) would fill an entire page with memories from the year. K.I.T.!

2.  What souvenir did you bring back from your last trip?
a mini chichen itza. i also brought back some sand and seashells in tiny, empty honey jars. this probably goes against customs laws but i'm going to start collecting sand from every beach i go to.

3.  What visible signs are there of your most recent injury?
the other day, i was making blueberry muffins and accidentally touched the 400 degree oven with my pinkie. the blister went away quickly and now there's a little smooth scar.

4.  What’s the neatest wedding favor you’ve ever seen?
i went to a wedding this summer where everyone received a giant full-sized bottle of whiskey. i don't drink but i'll always remember that one. for my sister's wedding, our cousin made about 500 tasty truffles and put them into little boxes with ribbon. sadly, i never got to taste them :(

5.  What do you do with playbills and movie-ticket stubs?
i save everything. i'm obsessed with keeping little bits of paper. playbills usually end up in a bin under my bed and movie ticket stubs now go in my journal with a note about what i thought of the movie. old movie ticket stubs are squirreled away in random places. i really should keep them all in one place and figure out a way to keep them from fading.

happy friday!
