Take Five

Look out planet...I'm baaaaack! With some much needed rest, a weekend in which the sun was out more than the clouds, and for some strange reason the Sesame Street theme song running through my head I offer you the following:

Today's post is brought to you by the number five:

It's the number of fingers or toes I have on the end of each limb.

It's half of ten.

The name of Speed Racer's car was the Mach 5

It rhymes with many other words: hive, Clive, alive, drive, etc.

A pentagon has five sides.

When followed by o'clock, it signals the end of a working day for many businesses.

When viewed upside down and through a mirror, it looks much like the number two.

When Micheal Jackson was still black, he sang with the Jackson Five.

It's how many cents a nickle is worth.

The fifth planet in our solar system is Jupiter.

There are five oceans in the world.

It's represented by a V in Roman numerals.

When you combine it with the word "high", you get the universal sign meaning "great job".

I like this game!

Dana said...

I've missed you! Welcome back!

Glad you are revived and refreshed ... now would you send that sun (and some warmth) to Chicago??

Jeff B said...

Travis- Good addition to the list.

Dana- Thanks, I'm sending the warmth your way, should arrive around mid April.

To stay healthy you're supposed to eat five servings of vegetables a day :)

Now I have the sesame street theme running through my head!!!

Matt-Man said...

Holy Crap Jeff. You really know your fives. High Five Dude. Cheers!!

Leighann said...

Let's see.... 5, the number of orgasms one should have on a daily basis! *giggle*

Odat said...

Jeff B said...

Ron- "wocka, wocka, wocka" It was a nice break, but it's also nice to be back.

Oswegan- I'm begining to have more faith that spring might actually happen. Agreed on the eclipse.

Zathyn- "la la la la la" It's catchy isn't it?

Matt- I wonder what a numerologist would do with something like this.

Leighann- Somehow I don't think you're going to get any argument about your number five!

Odat- Like the perverbial tack.

Mel- I'm sure himself will be dooley impressed. Have fun and blame away.

When Micheal Jackson was still male and black. Now he's just an ugly old white woman. Bwahahahaha. Glad you enjoyed the sunny weekend. I did as well. Have a great day Jeff. :)

Jules- It's a timeless classic.

Real LL- I wish I could send some your way. Soon.
