Friday Five: What's Red and Blue and Purple All Over?

Courtesy of RevGalBlog: "Those of us who are in the United States have just been through quite a topsy-turvy election. During the campaign we heard a fair amount about red states and blue states, when in fact most of us live in some shade of purple. And so. . . a lighter look at those confounding colors":
1. Favorite red food: Red velvet cake. Yum. Or a medium-rare steak. Yummier.

2. Tell us about the bluest body of water you've ever seen in person. Cozumel, Mexico. Breathtaking.

3. It's movie rental time:
Blue Planet, The Color Purple, or Crimson Tide? What about Deep Blue Sea (come on, don’t tell me that shark thing with Samuel L. Jackson wasn’t one of the most unexpected jaw-dropper scenes in film history) or Red Dawn (an scenerio many in my generation thought was just around the corner)?!

4. What has you seeing red these days? People who refuse to listen to each other. And power-plays among followers of Jesus.

5. What or who picks you up when you're feeling blue? Chocolate.
Coffee. A God-revelation. My three-year-old’s giggle. A good storm. My eight-year-old’s hug. My husband’s eyes when he laughs. A long phone call with Susan. Lauren’s enthusiasm. Lenore’s encouragement. Karen’s solid understanding. Jalapeno popcorn. A good and familiar movie, like The Mummy or Always. And good music, like Andrew Peterson, Joan Baez, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole or Billy Holiday.

I so remember going to see Red Dawn with my then husband, who was convinced the Soviets were right around the corner from invading us!
