Content generating procrastination: Friday Five edition

Because I still have too much work to do, and posting about my actual life is too overwhelming.

1. How did you name your pets?
We never changed our rescues' names, because ... we actually liked their names, though I've since learned it might be psychologically better to change the names of shelter dogs who were never fostered and just spent all their time in the shelter due to cognitive associations. I didn't know that then! I currently don't have any pets :( but would be naming them after book characters, most likely.

2. Poirot or Miss Marple?
I prefer Poirot. Mom prefers Miss Marple.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
I do, but I wish I didn't. The boundaries of what you can or can't say on Facebook are really strange to me and its hugeness and a whole bunch of other things

4. Books - hardcover or paperback?
Neither. Digital. The answer for the past four or five years has been 'large print,' and I've learned that my Kindle just does that for me. Any standard print books require magnifying glasses so I'd rather stick to eInk for everything. (Backlit reading like on a computer, phone or any non-eInk ereader doesn't really work either.)

5. Mobile phone: Windows/Android or Apple?
This question is wrooooong, so let's rewrite. Who thought Android was Windows? :)

5. Mobile phone: Windows, Android or Apple?
Android. I've had a Samsung Galaxy for the last like ... 5? years? First a S5 and now I have the S7; husband might be getting a J3. My mother has an iPhone 6 though and I like it just fine — I stick to Android in part because of the fact that I've already sunk a ton of money into Android apps. I have Apple computers and an iPad, so you'd think I would have the iPhone for more interoperability but that didn't end up happening.

Facebook is really, really weird. On the one hand, it's "keep in touch with all one's friends acquaintances"; on the other, it's self-promotion. I'll chat in private messaging if no other means of communication are available, but I only post things that are either Urgent Knowledge to my friendquaintances (Phone No Wrok and that sort of stuff) or stuff I'd be okay with being seen by a future employer.

The woman who wrote the questions is from Germany. I left them as she posted them. :D

Good answers.
