    Five Things Friday

    I'm sorry, but the world needs more: 1) random minutia; and 2) alliteration
    Hence, this weekly bumpable thread's creation.

    Deal with it.

    1. I generally prefer conifers to deciduous trees. Although, I do enjoy the changing colors in fall.
    2. Is it normal for one's weight to fluctuate +/- 16 lbs in a year?
    3. One of our neighbors smokes. He likes to stand out on his back patio at night with his rear floodlight on, smoke, and stare into our windows
    4. My lucky number is 17
    5. I have started playing games again on fb. Damn, they can be addictive!

    2. I'm down over 12 pounds so far this year.
    3. I'm attending a showing for a neighbor of mine that passed away last week tomorrow.

    5. I had the soup and salad bar at Big Boy with a coworker for lunch.

    Ah but people keep missing/forgetting 10 things Thursday and this gives 'em a chance to be timely (plus, one only has to slack half as hard to contribute to 5 things Friday)

    I love the iHeart Radio app. I use it when I'm running. It's almost as if it knows exactly what songs I want to hear.

    2. It feels like my department is the city 'dumping ground' - got a problem and don't know who else to pawn it off on?....
    3. I don't care if they are important players in the earth's ecosystem, I still don't like grasshoppers. Yuck!
    4. I wish I had a grape popsicle right now
    5. I'm feeling bad enough that I'd normally go home right now....but there's a meeting scheduled this afternoon to internally discuss community gardens. Oh what a decision

    1. Not sure what I feel today. Blah is the best word.
    2. I like Skyline chili. I don't care if it is a heart attack waiting to happen.
    3. I would like to open my own business... that has nothing to do with planning.
    4. Friday's make me sad that Monday is coming.
    5. I am doing pull ups every night. I now can do 21 in a row. Boom.

    1. Fifty things Friday,
    2. I gave in to temptation, and ordered a tablet. It'll beat lugging the laptop around to lunch, in meetings, etc.
    3. Having dinner at one of this town's six Thai restaurants tonight. Or is it seven? It's Thai fusion, so maybe it's six and a half.
    4. The NIMBYs are increasingly restless, but my employer has a "no social media" policy, so we can't dispell misinformation, gain support, etc, through a Facebook fan page or Twitter feed of our own.
    5. This.

    1. I had a doctor's appointment today, so I'm working from home this afternoon.
    2. Working from home isn't going so well.
    3. McDonald's fish sandwiches are $1.00 on Fridays.
    4. I think I'll tell my boys that the doctor told me that I can't bend down, so they'll have to take care of the dishwasher for three days.
    5. I'd really like to go out for a decadent dessert right now, but there isn't a decadent dessert to be found in my town.
