ONE | Other than through personal relationships and/or from one White guy to another, I am not sure there will ever be a good way to talk about and unpack the dreaded P-word, Privilege. So while way outside of the scope of this old school Galaga boy’s gaming world, I found this post from a, ” . . . white guy who likes women,” John Scalzi, interesting: Straight White Male, The Lowest Diffiuclty Setting There Is.

TWO | When people ask me, “How many cups of coffee do you drink in a day?” I often respond with, “Well that all depends on how you define cup.” . . . so, yeah, I drink a lot of coffee. Some say I might be self-medicating, but according to a recent study, ” . . . coffee consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality” which means drinking coffee doesn’t kill you, in fact, a little Philz might just let you live long enough one more cup. Score.

THREE | If you have been wanting a way to connect with your actually neighbors, check out Nextdoor.com. I have been part of our neighborhood group for a few months and have found it really good. Joining was secure – including a log-in and verification note mailed to your home – and the conversations have been exactly what they should be: alerts, garage sales, events and referrals. Case in point, this is how we found out that there has been a coyote sighting just a block from our house. Looks like no more dusk parties for Fawn.

FOUR | I have recently shift my blogging focus back over to my blog on Patheos and have remodeled and simplified www.reyes-chow. So, please subscribe to my Patheos and share it with your friends.

FIVE | Insert “Silentbutdeadliasaurus” joke here.

SEVEN | Like on Facebook: Wildgoose Festival. Bummed I can’t be there.

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.
