Friday Five: Potato Po-tah-to Edition

Today's Friday Five meme is brought to us by the inimitable Reverendmother, who says:
There are two types of people in the world, morning people and night owls. Or Red Sox fans and Yankees fans. Or boxers and briefs. Or people who divide the world into two types of people and those who don't. Let your preferences be known here. And if you're feeling verbose, defend your choice.
1. Mac? (woo-hoo!) or PC? (boo!)
Why yes, the Friday Five author reserves the right to editorialize!

Mac Mac Mac Mac!!!!! RM got that one right!!! Macs need no defense.

2. Pizza: Chicago style luscious hearty goodness, or New York floppy and flaccid?

A pox on both thine houses! By the time Portia and Babs were teens we were all SO over pizza. When it comes to cheesy-bready-edibles, give me quesadillas with beef fajita meat every time! Pass the guacamola, pico de gallo and the margaritas! Pizza? Bah.

3. Brownies/fudge containing nuts:
a) Good. I like the variation in texture.
b) An abomination unto the Lord. The nuts take up valuable chocolate space.
[or a response of your choosing]

A, but only if you leave the nutmeat whole. Thus saith the Lord, "thou shalt not split thine pecan or thine walnut or any other nut of the tree and bake them in thine brownies."

4. Do you hang your toilet paper so that the "tail" hangs flush with the wall, or over the top of the roll like normal people do?

Comin' after you, RM. Everyone knows that you hang it so the "tail" hangs flush with the wall so the TP tears evenly. Repent now.

5. Toothpaste: Do you squeeze the tube wantonly in the middle, or squeeze from the bottom and flatten as you go just like the tube instructs?

"Wantonly"? Somebody is wound a little tight, you think? Don't stress RM! Most of us in the 21st century are using the pump toothpaste container thingies so there's no issue with wanton squeezing! Just sayin'.

Glad to know that someone else agrees with me that TP-under is the civilized way.

~thou shalt not split thine pecan~

Preach it Sister!

Macs need no defense--great answer!

Presbyterian Gal said...

I agree with everything, except the pizza. Although I do also adore quesadillas and actually eat them more often than pizza.

Glad to know that when I visit your powder room your toilet paper will be properly hung!!!!

Amen on the t-p Sistah!

What Presbyterian Gal said.

Your play made me giggle. :-)

Diane said...

I'm actually over pizza too. It's boring

revabi said...

Had to laugh through this good play. Forgot about quesadillas

But I had never ever read the verse about not splitting the nut. Too funny. And you Texans have such good pecans.

I can just "hear" your voice. Makes me smile.

I make a flour tortilla pizza. Spread a thin layer of tomato paste over the tortilla, sprinkle on layer of shredded cheese, add toppings, top off with more cheese, then broil until the tortilla blackens on edges and is crisp. Best of both worlds.
