Friday 5 for June 24: Scattergories, Part 6

“Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!”

It’s the fourth Friday in June, which means it’s time for our annual Scattergories Five! My favorite Five of the year! (Yes; we’ve done them on the third Friday in June the past few years, but the fourth works better for me).

This week’s 5 is inspired by the party game Scattergories, in which players have to think of items, all beginning with the same letter, in several categories. For example, if the die is rolled and shows the letter T, players might have to name a soft drink, a farm animal, a river, and a U.S. President, all beginning with T. Valid answers might be Tab, turkey, Tennessee, and Tyler.

First, go to this nifty online random-letter generator. Set the “number of random letter sequences to generate” to 1. Set the “length of each random letter sequence” to 1. Leave the “letters to choose from” how it is and click the button. You’ll get a rather non-dramatic one letter. Use that letter to begin all your answers to the 5 questions below.  If you’d like to avoid difficult letters, feel free to change the “letters to choose from” list.  I’ll only judge you a little bit.  🙂

Alternately, if you find that boring, you could set the “length of each random letter sequence” to 5, thereby giving you five letters, a different one for each question.


What random letter was generated by the online random-letter generator (this doesn’t really count as one of your five questions)? VNLSE

What brand or model of car, whose name begins with the letter, would you like to get? I like the brand Volvo, my mom owned one and as long as it’s not too big, I’d definitely want it.

What summer activity, whose name begins with the letter, are you looking forward to? Night walking

What’s an item in your desk whose name begins with the letter? Letter

What’s something, whose name begins with the letter, that you find frightening? Spiders, definitely spiders.

If you had to get a tattoo on your upper arm, what’s something whose name begins with the letter that you could live with? Elephant. I’ve seen some really cute ones on the internet.


This week’s theme has become a tradition on Friday 5 and I decided to grab the old ones and answer those too!

  1. When you draw a five-pointed star, which point do you begin with, and where do you go from there? I always start at the top point, go down to the bottom left point, up to the upper right point, across to the upper left point, down to the bottom right point and then finish by going up to the top point.

  2. On a typical day, in what order do you put your clothes on? As always, shoes socks, pants, top. I’m a bottom-top kind of person I guess.

  3. When packing for an overnighter, what are you likely to pack too much of? Nothingmy mum’s voice from the distance: “clothes, darling. You always pack to many clothes.”

  4. How particular are you with laundry chores? Ahem… I don’t really do laundry. When it comes to that, my only duty is to put the clothes out to dry.

  5. How are your bookshelves organized? In my room I have multiple bookshelves, one for books in English, one for books in German, one for books in Romanian, one for books I’ve read an one for books I need for my A-levels; and all of them are organised by size.
