Lock Me Out, Lock Me In Friday Five

Yesterday, Blogger declared the Revgals site to be spam and blocked access to it. It's up and running again, and inspired the following questions:

1) How do you amuse yourself when road construction blocks your travel?
When traffic's crawling, I pick a vehicle in the next lane and watch them to see which lane's actually making progress (competitive, I know). And when traffic flat stops, I try to fund something fun on the radio.

2) Have you ever locked yourself out of your house? (And do you keep an extra key somewhere, just in case?)
Yes, I have, once or twice. But I don't keep a key outside. Ben's usually around with his key, and living in parsonages, someone always has a spare.

3) Have you ever cleared a hurdle? (And if you haven't flown over a material hurdle, feel free to take this one metaphorically.)
I don't think I overcome them so much as push right through...

4) What's your approach to a mental block?
Take a break and come back to it. If that doesn't work, see #3. :)

5) Suggest a caption for the picture above; there will be a prize for the funniest answer!
"Barricade Union on strike; demands higher pay, more breaks"


  1. Ah, one of those things about living in a parsonage that's both comforting and a little creepy...

    Good play!

  2. That's definitely one way to handle a hurdle!

  3. The strike idea is pretty funny!

  4. Hey, I find an identifiable car to watch for lane progress too! Love the caption.

  5. fun play - creepy with the key thing - but it's nice to not get locked out

  6. I forgot that I too get competitive in a standstill with other vehicles. Oh, well--only competitive in my head, which I have to give up after awhile or I'd go crazy!

  7. Hey I do that in traffic too, when I have traffic. It satisfies my type A tendancies.

    Good play. LOVE your caption. tee hee.
