A Belated Friday Five

Can you believe Daylight Savings Time is here already? It's hard to get used to the new, earlier onset. My family has been getting up and out a little late and a little sleepy in the mornings.

And can you believe that in two days it will be Palm Sunday for Western Christians? Our Lent is almost over, while our Orthodox sisters and brothers, whose liturgical year follows the older Julian calendar, are just starting theirs. Nicholas did a recent book report on George Washington, and we were surprised to find out that our first President's birthday was originally Feb. 11, since he was born just before the change to the Gregorian calendar. Apparently the change almost caused rioting, as some indignant people were sure that they were being cheated out of eleven days of their lives!

To help you adjust--and enjoy the process--here's a Friday Five about time and transitions....

1. If you could travel to any historical time period, which would it be, and why?
I wouldn't travel back. Too many problems with people. Especially the times when they hurted kittehs who hung out around weird ladies.

2. What futuristic/science fiction development would you most like to see?
A way of petting me without actually touching me.

3. Which do you enjoy more: remembering the past, or dreaming for the future?
Dreaming for the future. I don't like my past. It was bad bad bad bad BAD!

4. What do you find most memorable about this year's Lent?
I didn't do lent. I didn't know about it until now.

5. How will you spend your time during this upcoming Holy Week? What part do you look forward to most?
My family being back. Everyone was gone last night. But they're all back, so they should stay put for a bit.
