Happy Saturday! It’s April 5th. Even as the years are peeled off of my life’s calendar, I will always remember this day with a warm smile and a wish that all involved parties are doing well and living authentically.
Yesterday morning before leaving for work I finished week 3 of the DDP yoga program. I went out to lunch. I then went to a happy hour. (Note: I am following the exercise program, not the nutritional part. Obviously.) Those are my prime blogging times, so I didn’t get a chance to complete the Friday Five. So here we go! This week’s theme is usage.
1. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a power tool?
I pay rent so that other people use their power tools on my problems. Speaking of which, we’re ready to rent a home here in Southern NJ. If you know of a home for rent in the Westmont/Audubon/Haddon Heights/Haddon Twp/Oaklyn/Collingswood area (aka the PATCO line) with a fenced yard and that will allow my well-behaved pets, let me know!
2. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a postage stamp?
Mailing out invitations to the baby shower that you’re probably tired of hearing about. It’s tomorrow, though, and will be very lovely.
3. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a threatening word or gesture?
I live and drive in New Jersey, near places where Philadelphians drive to in order to get their suburban shopping mall fix. These Philadelphians, while lovely people, drive like absolute crap. I toss up my hands up in a threatening “what the heck is WRONG with you” gesture at least once every few days at a city driver who believes that they the dividing lines between lanes are merely suggestions.
4. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of some transparent tape?
I used it a few weeks ago to tape off the end of a strand of beading wire so my beads didn’t shoof off of the other side when I was stringing. There are widgets expressly made for that purpose, but meh. Tape works.
5. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of Wikipedia?
After seeing this video of Kid & Play on Arsenio, I used Wikipedia to look up how old Will Smith was. Will Smith is 45 years old.
WILL SMITH IS 45 YEARS OLD.
I can’t close on that depressing fact. Here’s a video to watch while I go cry. Happy birthday, Pharrell!
