Friday Five: ReverendMother’s Swan Song Edition

ReverendMother of RevGalBlogPals writes:

Well friends, as I prepare for the birth of Bonus Baby, it’s time to simplify life, step back from the Friday Five, and let one of the other capable and creative RevGals take the helm. It’s been a great almost 17 months of co-hosting the F5, but it’s time to say goodbye… so here’s my swan song.

On Endings and Goodbyes:

1. Best ending of a movie/book/TV show
The Princess Bride (the movie).

2. Worst ending of a movie/book/TV show
The Princess Bride (the book) – except that was the whole point.

3. Tell about a memorable goodbye you’ve experienced.
Saying good-bye to my Dad. Watching Clyde, our most memorable reformed barn kitty, take his last breath.

4. Is it true that “all good things must come to an end”?
Nope. Heaven will last forever.

5. “Everything I ever let go of has claw marks on it.”[–Anne Lamott] Discuss.
Hmmmm… Does she own cats? Or does she love life and all that is in it so much that she wants to linger and cherish every moment, every blessing?

Bonus: “It isn’t over until the fat lady sings.” I’ve never loved this expression. So propose an alternative: “It isn’t over until ____________________”

It ain’t over until Star Trek, M*A*S*H and Green Acres re-runs cease. [3 a.m. insomnia edition]
It ain’t over until it’s over. [coach cliche’ edition]
It ain’t over until I finish this silly paper, format it, fix all of the spelling and footnote errors, and upload it to BlackBoard! [seminarian edition]
