Here are five random (and not random, but not pointed) questions to get you going, if you feel like answering any of them today:

What book do you want?

What are your thoughts on the symbolism of the light bulbs in The Invisible Man?

Do you have a favorite ornament?

If you could have any pet, and the resources and the ability to take care of it, what would it be?

Do you like to sit on stools? Or do you find them uncomfortable?

Obviously, you don't have to talk about any of those things. Just talk!

* Speaking of today, I always want to say that we can keep these threads going throughout the weekend for anyone who wants to -- I definitely keep checking in through Sunday. Plus, I watch the traffic on them, so I know how many people are still reading them even on Monday morning. You won't be alone if you need advice or just want to talk later in the weekend too, in other words. So take your sweet holiday time, if you like.
