As I've mentioned before, I really like the '10 Things Thursday' thread. It occurs to me, however, that some may be daunted by the length/number of response required and because the thread falls so near to the end of the work week there isn't that much time for circulation/response.

It might be nice to start a '5 Things Tuesday as a sort of '10 Things Lite' alternative. Let's keep '10 Things Thursday' going, but I offer this thread as an expedient early-in-the-week supplement.


1. I would like to watch an episode of Hee Haw. It's been quite a while and I can't believe the show was as stupid as I remember...
2. I will be glad when November 7 rolls around
3. I just got done re-reading "The Mouse that Roared'. What great satire!
4. Tonight I will take the Cub Scouts to the Fire Station
5. The price of fresh cider is going for $8-9 per gallon

1. Why couldn't we have had this rain back in April/May.
2. I have had 2 cups of coffee.
3. Sad that one of the food booths at our fall festival had a fire - spread to inside the wall.
4. New health insurance provider started - Anthem Blue Cross/BlueShield
5. Interesting US Supreme Court case to read up & follow - Lozman v. The City of Riviera Beach

1. I want a job where I get "the money for nothing and the chicks for free."
2. Caramels and Milk Duds make me look forward to Halloween.
3. I know a very religious lady who every year feels compelled to tell me Halloween is a pagan holiday.
4. What can be so wrong about a holiday that has boys dressed like Ninjas, girls dressed like fairy princesses and grown women dressed like naughty nurses?
5. Band candy has no calories. Right?

5) Will this bottom eyelid twitch ever go away??

I dare you to tell her Christmas and Easter... and May Day along with some others, are pagan. In fact, Halloween has more roots in Christianity, as it derived from All Hallow's Eve, the night before All Saints Day, which is Catholic. Now, the date might have been moved by a few weeks to coincide with Samhain, a Celtic celebration, but it's debatable.

Bet you didn't want to know all that, huh? :p

1. Started a diet for the first time in my life
2. I'm hungry, though I'm usually hungry by this time anyways
3. I just hope the diet doesn't make it worse
4. First to turn in staff reports, last one to have them reviewed
5. I love fall, though the 100+ degree temps this past week seems like summer weather.

1. Got bitten by a black widow on Sunday and my thumb/hand hurts like something unfit for mixed company!
2. Did I mention my thumb? It really frickin’ hurts!
3. Getting ready to break ground on 4 more homes on Monday
4. Next week my son begins TWO WEEKS off – his school in on quarters. What the heck am I going to do with him all that time?!
5. My wife got some bonus money from her (deceased) mother’s insurance policy. She died 11 years ago, so the interest alone is sizable. Gonna pay for some interior house painting. Yeah, we know how to party….

1. The only better than the Bears beating the cowgirls would be the either the Saints or the Colts doing the same.
2. Tho my team really sucked this year, I'm sad that the regular season is winding down.
3. It's October already-wow
4. The debate tomorrow night, which I will not watch, is going to be joke..
5. FWIW not all Christians are anti-halloween. Most of us realize is a fairly harmless holiday. The only bad thing is kids wired on a sugar rush.:-c

1. While I have seen the word 'desiccant' in print many times, today is the first time I have had occasion to write the word myself.
2. My son is badgering me daily to replace the guitar strings that broke on his little guitar. My prediction: as soon as I replace them he'll strum it for maybe 15 minutes and it'll not see use again for at least another 6 months.
3. I'm down 8 lbs from my all time high.
4. Next year I will try to grow a lot more cucumbers and tomatos in the garden
5. I think it would be cool to have Tim Burton as a next door neighbor

1. 9:30 is as good a time as any to take a lunch break, and no one can tell me otherwise.
2. As of this morning, I have successfully cut every fingertip on my left hand. Archiving is more dangerous for me than archaeology was.
3. I'm interviewing an intern in a half hour or so. If I decide to take her, that will make more interns than paid employees at my museum.
4. I don't mind interns, it's just that I don't have enough work for them to do... but we have to take them. The University offers a certificate in Special Collections, and we are a designated practicum site. :|
5. Oh well, y'all have me thinking dinner. Calabacita tonight.

1. Doing all the chores around the house and taking care of a newborn 50% of the time is a lot of work. Thank goodness for my mother. When younger I thought she was overly nurturing, now I think it is her greatest characteristic.
2. My mother-in-law gave us a "free car" that we have already sunk almost $1000 into and now it is leaking oil on my driveway. I hate that car. I want to drive it into a swamp. We cannot even put the baby into it because it is an unsafe 17 year old Jeep Wrangler. WTH was she thinking. I want to get rid of it but she would freak out. And when she freaks out, watch out. Hell hath no fury...
3. Family and friends who bring ready to eat meals rock
4. I need to finish my garden for the fall but cannot figure out where to find the time
5. I feel the urge to go running but am pretty sure I would fall asleep in the driveway


2) I can't turn my Ipod volume high enough to drown out my coworker's hacking cough.
Oh no! You have a Mr. Coughy??? So sorry for you. I don't miss my ex-Mr. Coughy at all.

3. Tigers are bringing out the brooms tonight.
4. I thoroughly enjoy the fact I can go home for lunch.
5. This morning is going by relatively quick.
