Friday Five: superwomen!

Karla is over at RGBP getting ready for the church women's retreat..."This Friday-Saturday is our annual Women's Retreat at my church. It's one of my favorite 24 hours of the year, because we enjoy each other, we laugh, we cry, we support each other..and all of that good stuff!
So, since I am in the WR mode, let's talk about women in your life!"

1. Name a woman author you very much love to read.
Ooh, just one? I have several I really enjoy. I like Margaret George's historical fiction. I like Julia Spencer Fleming's clergy-sleuth mysteries. I like basically every book ever written about a princess, Tudor or otherwise, and many of those are written by women--notably Phillippa Gregory. I loved the Margaret of Ashbury series by Judith Merkle Riley.
2. Name a woman from the Bible with whom you would like to enjoy a nice long coffee talk.
hmm...Miriam. Or Rebeka. Or the woman at the well.
3. Name a famous woman from history with whom you would like to have lunch.
Catherine de Medici.
4. Name a living famous or infamous woman with whom you would like to go out to dinner.
like probably every other woman in the country...Michelle Obama. Such grace, and such a wonderful laugh, and so so smart!
5. If you could be SuperWoman (o.k., I know you already ARE) what three special powers would you like to have?
I definitely want to be able to apparate/disapparate (fastest way to travel!). To slow or speed up time would be handy (especially for naptimes!), though I have no idea how that would actually work--just repeating time (a la a timeturner) would be fine. :-) And the power to eat whatever I want...aka, a faster metabolism.

And you?


  1. ok Teri, you knew the word i was looking for on travel! perfect Thx :)
    love to read your responses and see the unique variety ...

  2. Time travel would be wonderful and since I picked also Miriam, that's gotta be a great choice. Thanks for playing!

  3. faster metabolism ;-)
    Miriam or Junia are my bible women.
    thanks for the fun play!

  4. unlimited choices of food...without the consequences would be fabulous.

  5. I like that idea of eating anything I want, esp. as I am counting my points daily for Weight Watchers. Glad to have new authors to look for!

  6. I'm going to have to look up some of those authors. I'm always on the hunt for good reads. Can I tag along for dinner, too?
