Today, A Free Lunch

Not that I need it, mind you. Today I am headed to a far away land known as Cobb county for a job fair.

Today will be a simple blog focused on one word “courtesy”, oh and since it’s Tuesday I’ll also have my CD release pick.

Courtesy
noun
1. a. Polite behavior.
b. A polite gesture or remark.
2. a. Consent or agreement in spite of fact; indulgence: They call this pond a lake by courtesy only.
b. Willingness or generosity in providing something needed: free advertising through the courtesy of the local newspaper.

adj.
1. Given or done as a polite gesture: paid a courtesy visit to the new neighbors.
2. Free of charge: courtesy tickets for the reporters.

It seems to me that being courteous is a simple act, ignored by many in today’s society.

Here are some things to think about

  • Let others exit a train or elevator prior to trying to board
  • Wait until you have the walk signal, especially when a turn signal is present
  • When walking two or more abreast move over to allow oncoming walkers (or runners) their “fair share” of a sidewalk
  • Say “Please” and “Thank you”

I’ll step down from my soapbox now.

Music For The Masses
School is back in session, time to buy some new music for that phat iPod 60Gig that you got this summer. Oh who am I kidding, kids today steal all of their music. But I digress…

My friend Andy’s favorite band 311 releases another mammoth cd today. Since I saw these white boys rap in Huntsville, Alabama back in 1993/1994 I’ve gotten over them.

Stryper is back, actually according to the title of their new cd they have been Reborn. Interesting, it looks like they will be once again touring the country tossing bibles to their fans. I wonder if they still have those bumblebee Spandex pants? Nope, I just can’t bring myself to pick their cd either.

What if I jump into the WayBack Machine and go even further back in time, back to a time when I was young, and life was great, the 1980’s? The BoDeans release of “Homebrewed: Live From The Pabst”. I am generally not a big fan of live albums (although Husker Du’s “The Living End” will rock my world until I pass), but these guys have been around for twenty years, so I should give the old guys some props.

However, one of my friends Dejie Johnson is releasing her first solo cd today called “Why Try to Change Me Now?”. How could I not be courteous and pick her cd as my Pick Of The Day? Good luck, Dejie.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – once again searching (for multiple items), anyone want to venture a guess? (answers tonight/tomorrow)
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 26 playing Pixies — “Gigantic”
Website Of The Day – If you just can’t get enough nerdy news, then go to Waxy.org’s links.

Off to interview potential employees….

Cheers!

    Nut roll!?! Ha! I could do the 30-miler on a mountain bike; wonder how much they would laugh at me. Then again, anyone rolling their nuts hasn’t much right to laugh…
