Friday Five: Good and Bad

Since the usual 5 Fandom Friday is on hiatus this month, I thought I'd go for the original (maybe?) Friday 5:

What’s good and what’s bad about the weather lately?

The good is that it's SUNNY. And WARM. Enough that it's comfortable and enjoyable to go running outside! I have always loved summer (no school! birthday! swimming) but in Sweden I just love it extra much. It's my reward for getting through the cold, dark winter. If there's anything bad about the weather, it's that it's not sunny and warm enough. (Spring is always full of hiccups, and there are some days where it's still just like 11 *C outside.)

What’s something that’s so bad it’s good?

So many movies. There is a special place in my heart for Coleman Francis's weird, sad, brief body of work.

What’s something that used to be bad but now is good?

There's any number of foods I didn't like, or didn't try because I didn't think I would like, when I was younger that I've now grown quite fond of.

What are some of your pet words for very bad and very good?

I don't think I have any particular, idiosyncratic expressions for good or bad. I will say that I can't get on board with "amazeballs" though. I just can't.

What’s your favorite song by Bad Company (or Good Charlotte, if BadCo isn’t your style)?

Well, neither Bad Company or Good Charlotte are my style. I do have some Badfinger:

Good Riddance:

and Benny Goodman:


  1. I'm usually not looking forward to Summer, (too hot, don't have a pool, my birthday as well and I hate getting older lol) but this year I'm trying to be a better sport about it. My friend has a pool I'm going to try and utilize more, turning 25 isn't the end of the world, and to combat the heat I've been looking up a lot of alcohol infused fruit recipes. I'm ready!!

    and really what is the deal about "amazeballs?" I just think it sounds gross >_> If it ever gets added into the dictionary I'll cry.

    1. I'm a grown-ass woman and I still love my birthday. I think I'm still 12 years old inside.

      booze and fruit, two of my favorite things...!

  2. I don't mind the milder spring because soon it will be way too hot!

    1. I am a tropical orchid. BRING ON THE HEAT.
