Friday Five: Fading

It’s been awhile since I did one of these…

Today’s Friday Five is all about Fading.

What’s something in your possession whose color has obviously faded?
— numerous pairs of socks. Particularly the Koigu handpaints. I absolutely love the colours, but they fade so quickly! And, unfortunately, this yarn tends to wear thin quickly, so out of about 3 pairs of Koigu socks, I’m down to one….

Which of your talents, skills, or abilities has faded as you’ve grown older?
— Amazingly enough, I used to be almost completely bilingual (French as a second language). While I can often understand conversation if spoken slowly and clearly enough, it takes some serious brain power for me to respond without sounding like an imbecile.

Among people you know, who seems best able to fade into the background in a crowded room?
— I would have probably chosen myself. Big girls often tend to try to make themselves invisible

What song seems to have a ridiculously long fade-out at the end?
— The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen.  Honestly, it’s like vocal masturbation. Seriously! La la la LAAAA La! (rolls eyes)

What recently prominent person seems to have faded quickly into oblivion?
— That’s one I really have no answer for that one. I’m not exactly on the cutting edge of what’s what 😉
