Mas Que Nada

I love NPR just like Annzy does. I especially like it on the morning commute. It's kind of funny, because it's a 2-hour loop and I usually get in my car after the gym exactly two hours after leaving it to go into the gym. I just pick up right where I left off.

This morning, the story I heard arriving and leaving the gym was about Sergio Mendez. You may or may not know that he's a family favorite. We heard his work while driving to Burley, Salt Lake, San Francisco, L.A., Tucson, and everywhere else we ever drove as a family. It was one of the few things we all liked (and we only ever listened to anything that Dad liked, so this is saying a lot).

You can listen to the new album Timeless here. Somehow, I don't think my Dad would buy this one. I couldn't even recognize Mas Que Nada (which is one of my favorites from the Best Of album). E Menina is totally old school though. Maybe Dad would like three or four of the songs.

Blue, Blue, My Eyes are Blue

I think I can tell how old you are by whether or not you recognize the title of this post as song lyrics. Just a thought to start this post, but really not what it's all about.

It's really all about wasting time (even at work). If you haven't taken any of the Blogthings Quizzes, you're really missing out on a fabulous time waster. Today, I found out what color my eyes should be. Lucky for me, they should be blue. And they are. Coincidence? I think not! I was at the mercy of the quiz. Here's what it said...

Your Eyes Should Be Blue
Your eyes reflect: Innocence and sweetness
What's hidden behind your eyes: A calculating mind
Cool, huh? I have a calculating mind. Who would have known if I hadn't taken the quiz? Who needs a mirror or introspection when you have online quizzes?

You can take the quiz too. Even better, when you take that quiz, then you can chose from a variety of other time wasting quizzes to take. It's a thing of beauty. Take the quiz here: What Color Should Your Eyes Be?
