 Wow. I haven't updated this thing in ages. I think facebook took over a bit and I let LJ slide. 

I see some updates, but do most of you just do the FB thing now and leave LJ alone for the most part?

I am planning on checking out the Sparkle Party Craziness next Saturday, and hope to catch up with several of you in person. 

I'll try and up date this more frequently going forward.

It's National Doughnut Day, and you know what that means -- FREE DOUGHNUTS!

The Salvation Army created the holiday, which is always celebrated on the first Friday in June, in 1917 to boost the morale of troops fighting in WWI. According to holidayinsights.com, those doughnuts were fried in oil inside an American soldier's metal helmet.

Dunkin' Donuts and Krispy Kreme outlets both are commemorating the holiday by giving out free doughnuts.

To get your freebee at Dunkin' Donuts, you'll need to buy a drink. But there are no strings attached at Krispy Kreme.

What music moves you

I am in the process of compiling a list of songs for an upcoming event, and would love to hear from all of you what song or songs make you want to get up and shake your arse, sing along, or at the very least tap your foot, whenever they are played.

All genres are good, as this is for a very eclectic crowd.

MEANING:
adjective: Having yellow teeth.

ETYMOLOGY:
From Greek xanthos (yellow) + -odon (toothed).

Stand and Deliver - by No Doubt?

I have always had a soft spot for No Doubt.

When they redid "It's My Life," by Talk Talk, it was inspired and a huge hit for them.

Now they have redone "Stand and Deliver" by Adam and the Ants.

This time - it just sounds so campy, I don't know if it's Gwen's voice or the tempo that they are using but it kind of reminds me of bad refried American Idol crap.

Sci Fi is now SyFy

Around the office we have taken to pronouncing it "Sih Fee" due to the silliness of this move by the network.
Okay it's not that funny. But give me a break, at least 2/3 of the office is hung over.
