Five O'Clock World

1. Think back to Friday. Did it fly by? Or did you find yourself checking the clock and wishing it was 5:00? the day was a mixed bag, I was certainly looking forward to the dismissal bell

2. This song refers to the 5:00 whistle that signifies the end of the work day. What's the last whistle, alarm or buzzer you heard? the ding of my car because I left my headlights on after turning the car off

3. In the 1960s, the Vogues often appeared on TV variety shows to promote their record albums. Do you have the TV on now, as you answer these questions? I do

4. "Vogue" means "popular or fashionable." Tell us about something that you feel is in vogue today. knitting and other handicrafts

5. Vogue magazine reported that the big Fall/Winter trend was brocade. Describe the latest addition to your Fall/Winter wardrobe. a cashmere blend sweater--it's heavenly!

6. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is such a difficult boss that disgruntled employees nicknamed her "Nuclear Wintour." What qualities do you think make a good boss? listening to the people who do the actual work

7. Ms. Wintour was rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Amanda in the book and movie, The Devil Wears Prada. Did you receive any books or movies for Christmas 2015? Did you receive any gift cards that you then used for books or movies? I received gift cards for my Nook

8. "Vogue" was also a dance, made famous by Madonna in her 1990 hit by the same name. Can you name another Madonna song? "Justify My Love"

9. Random question from a Sat9-er: How organized are your clean clothes? (Stacked in piles, folded neatly in drawers, still in the dryer....?) neatly stacked piles of folded clothes

I have the Samsung nook. I never use it, though. I fear B&N is not going to make it.

Knitting and handcrafting is very much back in vogue. Nice answer to that question. I'm knitting again thanks to modern meds. ;o)

A little yarn store just closed here, in mu neighborhood, and the space was immediately taken by another little yarn store. Since this new one looks like an independent woman-owned business, I hope the trend toward handmade and handknitted continues. I like seeing shops like this succeed.

My sister-in-law knits, I sometime wonder how she can concentrate of two things at once.
