The Friday Five

Good morning everyone. I want to get today's Friday Five up on Friday (surprising, I know, given my incredible ability to not have this up at all) so that we might all get a chance to play!

All you have to do is answer the following questions in the comments or in your own journal (leaving a link in the comments below). I'll pimp the person who plays first:).

And in true-dat pimp style, the fabulous Nat of Interface ( was our first player last week. Her journal is fun, focused, and always makes you smile.

We had a first time player last week, too. Carly, of Ellipsis...Suddenly Carly, found her way to Courage via Patrick's Weekender. Stop over and visit - she's a very dynamic blogger (

Now, onto today's questions (from Livejournal):

1) Of the various cultures, ethnicities or nationalities you belong to, which most strongly do you consider yourself?

Well, I identify most with my French-Canadian heritage. When I found out, I had always assumed I was Irish, but no, I've been here on this continent long before the potato famine. That has always made me feel special. I hope my ancestors were something cool, like fur trappers :).

2) Is there a culture you cannot claim heritage from but which you feel quite close to?

Italian, actually. I live next to an Italian restaurant and the proprietors are from Sicily. I hear Italian accents and the language all the time, I admire their family values, and I love how they always, always, deal in cash :).

3) What's one language you wish you knew fluently?

Russian - I used to, but I've since lost much of it.

4) If you could move anywhere in the world and be guaranteed a job, etc., where would you go?

Moscow - no doubt about it. I love that city. I'd live out my life there.

5) If you could attend only one cultural or sporting event for the rest of your life, where would you go?

Game 7 of the World Series, in Yankee Stadium. The noise would be like choirs of angels.
