Friday Five: Either/Or

This week's RevGalBlogPals challenge:

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 choices!

1. Mac? or PC?
I've always used a PC, by default. Is this a bad thing?

2. Pizza: Chicago style luscious hearty goodness, or New York floppy and flaccid?
This is interesting: I've always been a deep-dish, thick crust, pile-on-the-toppings kind of gal...but lately I've been intrigued by the concept of the simple sidewalk slice. One of these years we're probably going to NYC to visit our kids/in-laws, so I will have the opportunity to try real Brooklyn-style pizza.

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]

Oh -- gotta have the nuts. But they have to be fresh nuts. There is nothing worse than having a delicious fudgy brownie ruined by a funky, rancid chunk of walnut in it.

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?
Under. Under is the way my mother would always hang TP. Under is the civilized way. In my opinion.

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?
Much to the consternation of family and close personal friends...I am a wanton tube squeezer. It's just more fun. And you still wind up, a month or so later, with a flattened tube.

Bonus: Share your favorite either/or.
Black ink. I just can't write longhand for extended periods of time without a black-ink inkpen. Blue is so...well...not black.

good play! first mention of ink so far

Tripp Hudgins said...

Nice...And I think my wife is civilizing me.


We Do It Too said...

you really think you can get the same amount of toothpaste out this way? i don't know...thanks for coming to my blog:)

hipastorzwife2B said...

I'm a blue ink girl...that way you know which is the original and which is the copy fast.
Not that I EVER need to know this, of course.
If you need an extra to play Skip-Bo with you and Jesus, give me a call.

Kievas said...

In response to #1: Yes, absolutely. Viruses, spyware, generally clumsy interface, and more...see this site.

Hedwyg said...

Another wanton woman - it's funny to see so many RevGals admit to that one. :-)

I'm a blue-ink kind of person, myself. When I'm not using something scandalous like purple or burgundy or aqua. But then, for me, an office supply store is like an, erm, adult entertainment store. <blush>

Happy Friday!

Presbyterian Gal said...

So true about the black ink. The words come together better, don't you think?

toujoursdan said...

How's this for weird?

I love brownies with nuts but absolutely HATE cookies with nuts (to the point that I will make a mess picking them out)

Sue said...

I was with you until the ink. I'm a blue ink person. Medium point, not fine. No blotches. Not that I'm particular or anything... :)

mompriest said...

I go both ways, over or under, black or blue...maybe I just have no sense of to read your play!

Serena said...

ohhhh, I'm so with Hedwyg on the ink and office supply store ... and, I find it interesting that when it comes to first tp = toilet paper you're "civilized" yet when it comes to 2nd tp = tooth paste, you're "wanton" .. yen & yang

Cathy said...

I like having blue ink for my school paperwork so I can tell if it is the original or not. otherwise, I'll take black.

Reverend Dona Quixote said...

Isn't wanton Lutheran oxymoronic?


Did y'all ketch any fish last night?

LutheranChik said...

Didn't catch ONE fish.

As much as I hate cleaning fish -- if "eating something with a face on it" is problematic, then cleaning a fish isn't for you -- I do love panfish like bluegills. Crispy bluegill filets are hard to beat.

revabi said...

Too cool. I wrote about fresh nuts too.
And good recipe that you post later.

I thought black ink was required now days.

I like Macs and PCs, and I have one of each. My husband has a computer that runs both Mac and Windows. He calls it the Two-headed Beast :) I think a lot depends on what you are using it for.

Here is my either or: boxers or briefs (for men), underwire or no wire bras (for women). My husband wears briefs and I like underwire bras.
