Friday Five 1. What was

Friday Five

1. What was your most memorable moment from the last week? A guy in a bar comes up to my friend and says, "You want some crystal?"

Friend shrugs, "sure, if you're giving it away." Friend goes off to bathroom, comes back a little too quickly, gives me the handoff and tells me to check it out. I saunter off to men's room, open the packet (which is half a 100 peso note) and inside find 20-30 tiny little gemstones, all cut and polished. Probably cubic zirc or somesuch. Returned packet to friend, who returned it to guy. "Um, thanks, but I think you might want this back."

Guy freaked a little (tweaky much?), thanked us profusely for the safe return saying he wouldn't have been able to pay rent without it. We were left wondering how one pays rent with crappy little fake gemstones.

2. What one person touched your life this week? His writing.

3. How have you helped someone this week? Gave tweaky guy his gems back.

4. What one thing do you need to get done by this time next week? Package and ship out all the thank you letters and gifts for the newest round of corporate sponsors.

5. What one thing will you do over the next seven days to make your world a better place? Heroin. Oh wait, that would be a bad thing. Seriously, I need to do a big spring cleanup/purge of my office and my email inbox at work. Purge, prioritize, plan the next action and get on with it all.
