Here's the Friday Five:
1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
Yes I do. When I was younger, I loved shopping. I could live at the mall. As I've gotten older, I still enjoy shopping but I'm not fanatical about it. When I have something that I need to buy, I love to go shopping and getting it but I don't go hang out at the mall and wander around just for something to do anymore.
2. What was the last thing you purchased?
Groceries for Mark's dad on Wednesday night.
3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
Depends on what I'm buying. I'd rather shop online for music and books because I live in a small town and the selection online is better than in the shoppes. For clothes, I love to shop in person (although I have bought a lot of stuff online too). I much prefer to feel the fabric and try stuff on in the store.
4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
I know that I did when I was really little but can't remember how much it was. I know that when I got to high school, my mum gave me the baby bonus cheque each month for my allowance but I had to do a lot of stuff around the house to earn it.
5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
The wooden screen door we put in last spring. Our side door is a non-standard size so, rather than order a custom aluminum door that would match the one we were having put in at the front of the house, we got this really nice wooden one. Given the fuss and bother of painting and having to get a piece of lucite cut for it (for the winter) and the way that it has warped a bit over the summer, I now know that we should have sprung for the extra for the custom aluminum door because we're going to have to go that route eventually anyway.
