Friday Foolishness – Dapper Edition


Today’s Music: Vintage Trouble – Blues Hand Me Down

In this spot, each week, I post a few links of some of what I’ve read this last week. Yesterday was my birthday. And some of the coolest people I know came out to
wish me a happy one! And boy, did they ever help to make it even happier! The great songs, the hilarious videos, and all of the warm wishes , helped to make it one of my coolest birthdays EVER!!!I can’t tell you how lucky I am to get to hang out with such a fantastic, deranged, witty, clever outgoing, (did I mention deranged?) bunch of people. Every week, you remind me of how lucky I am to get to hang out here. And in closing (and I’m rambling now because I still have some links to embed), I would just like to say THANK YOU ALL for your time, and your company, and above all, for your friendship . It made this trip around the sun more fun than I ever could have imagined.
Crap. I’ve run out of stuff to say. Fortunately, I’m up to the last link.

So thank you, every single one of you, for making every day in your company a better day than the one before!

Ok, now that the sappy stuff is out of the way, let’s get on to the really important stuff – last weeks poll! My company was subsumed by a larger corporation, and we moved our offices into a drone farm. I already have 4 resumes for out there for decent positions, with a lot more to go on the weekend.
But the question was, what should I apply for?
And from your answers, every one of you could find work as a life coach. For someone. Maybe.

One of the things that was repeated over and over again in the birthday posts yesterday was how I am both nice and handsome. I can’t imagine where you wonderful people get these ideas.
But the real question is how do I do it? And that’s this weeks poll. See if you can sort out how I maintain my handsome demeanor.
Answer often, answer creatively. But answer by 2359 EST on 13 December, because that’s when this one closes.
And if you write an other answer, leave a way to recognize you and I’ll link back next week.


And until next time, I leave you with a couple of bits of inanity bestowed upon me yesterday.
From Alex Autin, Space Unicorn!!!!

(Admit it, now you want a marshmallow laser!)

And from >GingerSnaap</

have a great week, y'all, and see you…out there…
