5 down, 8,010 to go

It's Friday morning. I have an easy day ahead of me. The price of gas dropped. Any day now, they'll start running new episodes of "Battlestar Galactica." And, Mr F has stopped throwing cactus at me.

That's the way to end the week. The only thing that could make it better is this song:

"Speak To The Sky," By Rick Springfield. Have a great weekend!

Down... To my way of killing time in between longer pieces -- I'm going to eventually list every song on my iPod. Why am I so short on time? Because of my awesome parenting skills -- as recounted in The Egg Salad Incident.
