Friday Five: Take Me, Baby, or Leave Me

Over at RevGalBlogPals, Songbird asks: Whether it's new friends or new loves or new employers, what are five things people should know about you?

1.The shortest route between two points will never be the one I take...my life is geared around scenic routes and major diversions and procrastinations. I'm ENFP to a ridiculous extent.

2. If you are fond of me, I really need to know that...I don't believe the evidence till it's confirmed in words or hugs.

3. If I don't have a deadline, I'll probably never get a task done. With a deadline, I can achieve at least six impossible things before breakfast.

4. Presiding at the Eucharist probably gives me more joy than anything else in life (apart, perhaps, from Bach...and Maya Gold chocolate).

5. In a contest for my time/energy/attention, my children will always win....fortunately, they are at the stage now where they can mostly wait till parish crises are sorted, but every now and then....

Eta (in pink, because I'm blushing) You are all very kind but I'm now feeling as if my fishing expedition was a bit too pointed. Truly, when I played this Five last night, I did it quickly in response to the "what do I wish people knew about me" element of the game. And you've all been quite wonderful in responding to item 2 on the list but I feel as if I have taken "high maintenance" to vertiginous levels. Thank you, though...your responses are hugely, if bashfully, appreciated

are you my secret extrovert twin? I tend towards being an INFP, but otherwise your answers could easily be mine..... only I thought of some other stuff.

I like to hear the words, too. Love you, K!

I am so with you on number 4! And I hope we get to eat chocolate together too. (In Phoenix maybe?)

Love you bunches - virtual hug. I'm and ESTJ - always looking for the most direct path and sometimes missing the scenery.

Word Verification - imospect - sounds like what we've done on this Friday Five - inspect ourselves!

Even over all these miles, I do admire you so very much Kathryn. You are so wise and funny and kind.

Please come to Phoenix so I can give you a hug!
