Friday Five (late).

1. List five things you'd like to accomplish by the end of the year.
- Finish at least one more piece of needlework.
- Find (unpack) the finished pieces I haven't photographed.
- Finalize plans, acquire materials, and build the wall unit I'd like to span the narrower width of our room to hold the computers and provide more storage.
- Make firm plans to refinish/repair the furniture that's been waiting for me (two cane chairs, four rush chairs, a dresser and two treadle sewing machines.)
- Get either a full-time job with health benefits or a part-time job that I could work around part-time classwork. (This may be closer than I've been hoping since there's a library position opening up soon at the middle school.)

2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again.
- D'Evelyn classmates from my grad class that I haven't tracked down yet. (This sounds noble, but it's really because I'm my grad class liason.)
- Aaron Black.
- Brendan McGillicuddy from Oxford Academy. (I'm more interested in introducting him to Himself because I think they could have a more satisfying math conversation than Himself tries to have with me.)

I couldn't think of anyone else. A few of my friends joke that I'm the glue that keeps people in contact with each other, but I really just have information pack-rat tendencies so if I can't find someone they usually manage to find me.

3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do.
- Tatting.
- Advanced seamstress/costuming skills.
- Cook like vogonpoet.
- Install wood/laminate flooring.
- Be more photogenic (this is for you, littletits readers).

4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit).
- Pay off relatives' mortgages (parents, sister, abuela) and make the relatives freeloading off my abuela either pull their weight or move out.
- Throw money at the medical industry until my chronic pain stops.
- Set up a college/whatever she wants to do after she turns 18 or 21 fund for Laurel and pad it out.
- Buy the house across the street from my parents' for us and furnish it.
- Establish a scholarship fund/endowment for promising students that would otherwise fall through the cracks for financial aid through no fault of their own.

5. List five things you do that help you relax.
- Needlework.
- Masturbate.
- Read something eye-candy heavy (Architectural Digest, Threads, King Arthur Flour Baker's Catalogue).
- Go trail-running/snowshoeing, depending on the season.
- Take my shoes off in the off event I'm wearing any.
