RevGal Friday Five composed in Antofagasta, Chile. A 21 hour bus ride north of Santiago....through hours of the Atacama desert...fascinating, really.

1. If you were a color, what would you be?

My dream job as a child was to be the one who thought up names for paint colors... So, I´m going to go with Ruminative Oceanic Blue-Green.

2. If you were a flower (or plant), what would you be?

Cactus. Sturdy, hardy, colorful, though not obviously so at first, can take in a lot and can live through a lot.

3. If you were an animal, what kind would you be?

Definitely an elephant. Contemplative, compassionate, loving, loyal, seemingly slow but of long memory and far reaching vision.

4. If you were a shoe, what type would you be?

Gotta go with the Birks here. Simple, free, comfy.

5. If you were a typeface, which font would you be?

Oh, I can´t remember the name...something like SchoolBook. Clear, clean, not overly girly or curly, easy to read, practical.

I think I remember one called New Century Schoolbook? And Gannet Girl also chose blue-green and cactus, there must be something in that. Great answers!

for a minute I thought you had a source for free Birks! rats. I love them too.

Your color choice sounds really lovely! That does seem like it would be a fun job.

Not only are cacti sturdy, tenacious, and cool, they are also beautiful. The flowers that come from cacti can be the most vibrant, awesome colors that they will take your breath away.

Thank you to each for stopping by and leaving a word or two!

AK-- Yes, that is the font! Thank you. Will check out Gannet Girl´s entry too...

MB--Sorry, no free Birks! My feet just feel so free and happy in them! Space to move and breathe.

MM--Thanks! I still love looking at paint chips.

MP--What a lovely reminder. Thank you...

And some cactus in the Chilean deserts have fruits that are delicious but handle with care. I am so glad you got to visit further north and hope to hear more about it as that foundation was made long after I left Chile. Helen, rscj
