On our birthday (OK our birthday was Wednesday but we had to keep with both tradition and alliteration – Wednesday 5 has no flow) we have decided it's a time for reflection, or stock take if you will. We have all browsed the archives and chosen our favourite Friday 5s, which has evolved from a Squeamish Kate and Louise collaboration to a Squeamish family listings feature. If you have a favourite you'd like to revisit tell us in the comments.
2. I'd like to highlight the Friday 5 Public Transport Rules of Etiquette. Because people still haven’t learned from this, especially my entry in it. Preparation is still key. Gareth
3. I believe I made it clear in the Ohrwurm Friday 5 that I am not crazy about The Friday 5, but according to the SB statistics and actual real life feedback it's found a special place in some people's hearts. What I do like about the Friday 5 is all the little facts I learn from/about the other Squeamish writers every week. Childhood memories have been dredged up, impressive sidekick character knowledge displayed and a terrible affliction for confusing LA LA LA with NA NA NA. Squeamish Kate
4. With age comes wisdom or just more mistakes about fashion, politics and mainly hair! Back in 1995 while a cooed over Casper the friendly (boy-)ghosts golden blonde curtains I was rocking a far more severe 90s hairstyle. This is why my favorite Friday 5 harks back to the not-so-rose-tinted memories of the 90s - Things We Believed In The 90s. I believed my hair looked good. Alas I was wrong! Squeamish Nicola
5. Our lovely whale has seen us through a strange old year here at Squeamish Towers. She's helped us explore holidays, nostalgia and self-improvement.
So my vote has to go to one of our earliest Friday 5s - moustaches! I love a good 'tache at the best of times, but thanks to the squeamish whale (with a little help from Kate's artisitic prowess), now we all know what she looks like rocking a twirl 'tache and a monocle. Bitchin, that's how! Squeamish Louise
