Friday is my favorite blog day because it gives me an excuse just to blog aimlessly. This week was filled with unique that included going to the studio to cut some commercials, as well as going to the Washington Wizards game. Mixed in was some real legal work. So at least I have that going for me!
So here is some “randomness” because it wouldn’t be a Friday blog without random:
Because I “type” the blog, this seemed relevant. Did you know that the word typewriter is the longest word that can be typed by using only the top row of the keyboard. (that’s one of those facts that you either keep reading because you don’t care, or you look at the computer keyboard to see if that is correct. Kinda like me saying no one can touch their elbow with their tongue. See?)
In the world of surprise comes this strange thought. In the original Star Wars trilogy movies, David Prowse was the actor in the Darth Vader suit. During the shooting of the scenes, he did all the lines and didn’t know that his voice was going to be substituted until he saw the screening of the movie. Imagine his surprise when all of his lines were being dubbed over by the voice of James Earl Jones.
And finally, because I enjoy facts about marketing, this one grabbed me. The first coin operated machine was a holy-water dispenser that required a five-drachma coin to operate. It was the “invention” of the first century Greek Scientist, Hero.
And for pic o’ day I include puppies, because it’s hard to be angry at puppies. And another, for all the cat musicians out there … and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
