Daily Grind: Busy

Name: Vin (aka woah)
How Vin feels today: Busy @ 9:28:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To get everything prepared for this weekend's birthday festivities (kid turns 3).

Music Stuck in Head: Lisa it's your Birthday / Michael Jackson
Obligatory and relevant for different obligatory and relevant reasons.

Stuff to do today:

  • Take a stroll down memory lane and watch Captain EO on YouTube
  • Recall other fond memories off Michael Jackson
  • ...like covering Billy Jean in my college band
  • ...and then almost getting booed off stage (once)
  • Post audio clip of said event
  • Head over Home Depot and get some neccesary household items that I have been meaning to get
  • Put it off some more as it is going to rain buckets well into next week
