My Friday Five is somewhat of a mishmash of stuff I have recently seen around the interwebs, some of which I actually kept track of and others, I just remembered upon the writing of this post. Enjoy.
ONE | Like so many of you, I have wanted the silver bullet of organization systems to keep my to do list in some organized form. I have tried online systems like Remember the Milk as well as the paper system, Franklin Covey, but none have done the job. With a humble nod to my wife who has been tracking her life in a composition book for years, I’m going back to the tried and true pen and paper system with a Whitelines Hard Bound A5 Lined Notebook.
TWO | I will never ever be accused of being on the cutting edge of the music scene. Heck, if I were the world’s DJ, on WBRC we would all be listening to a constant rotation of Wham, New Edition, Debbie Gibson and Michael Jackson. Shut-up That said, occasionally in my travels I have the chance to hear about groups that are starting to make a bit of splash. Check out this Seattle band, Posse and if they make it big, you can say that you heard it from me 😉 Interweb links: facebook | twitter | reverbnation | Itunes | Spotify | Amazon
FOUR | For some reason I have been having a bunch of conversations lately about the legalization and use of marijuana. I am one of those who tends to lean towards legalization and regulation like alcohol and cigarettes, but by no means has this been a huge passion of mine. So for the record, while I was doing a bit of wine tasting this past week, this particular variety was not on the list. And no, today’s date did not go unnoticed.
FIVE | When I am around certain people, I tend to swear much . . . much . . . much more than usual. While I do experience a little catharsis with a well-placed F-bomb, because I don’t want, “Dad, you are an effing idiot!” echoed back to me by my daughters, my language is generally pretty PG. What about you, “Do your kids swear more than you did?”
