10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. I have been jamming all morning. We closed the office to clean the thing from top to bottom. It is all done but the paper explosion that is my desk. This is my break. Aren't you glad I am spending it with you?
  2. In honor of the beginning of the school year.... I would like to share the BEST 25 HIGH SCHOOL MOVIES OF ALL TIME. I would like to point out that I don't think that that last sentence is grammatically correct.
  3. The Babe starts preschool on Monday at 9:00. At 9:05 I will be an officially blubbering mess.
  4. Pandora has had incredible music choices today. I have been listening to it mostly at full blast. Which makes it impossible to hear my cell phone. So if you have called me and I didn't answer, I'm sorry. It's not that I don't like you. It's just that I like Journey, Pink, The Calling, and The Goo Goo Dolls a little more right now.
  5. My garden is officially a flop. We are going to move it next year. Raised beds maybe. Haven't decided yet. But you can not garden in clay. Welcome to Nebraska.
  6. Hawkeye Football starts 3 weeks from tomorrow. They play Eastern Illinois. And 1 week later they play Iowa State. I miss living in Iowa City sometimes.
  7. I am planning a watermelon seed spitting contest for Sunday afternoon. You are all invited.
  8. Hey I just left the planet earth But a' where I go I hope there's rum . -- Cool prize to whomever can Name That Tune! It'll probably be some crap off of my porch.
  9. Whatever happened to cool game shows? What will our kids watch reruns of? Wouldn't you rather watch game shows than stupid reality shows?
  10. And while we are on old TV shows... why do the new shows not have cool catchy theme songs? I mean would Gilligan have been Gilligan without the "a tale of a fateful trip that started from this tropic port aboard this tiny ship?"
  11. The Babe can sing the theme song from Mr. Ed. My mom warped me. I am only passing it on.
  12. She can also sing "there's a little change in my pocket going ging a lang a lang." Yes, I did teach my daughter borderline appropriate songs. What of it?
  13. I can't count to ten.
  14. I need to go back to work.
  15. Seriously. I need to get off of the internet and go back to work.
Love to all. Happy Friday. Happy weekend.

Do something fun. You've earned it. Unless of course you screwed off all week. Then you should probably have fun anyway and take then a minute to re-group. Lesson learned.

No. 8 is "Volcano" by Jimmy Buffett. Great song!
