Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming
So, I skipped last week’s Friday Five in favor of a Twitter Five, and the week before that I was stuck at merely Four. This week, however, I have returned with a full list of five things I find interesting and/or bizarre.
- It’s Friday. You’re at work. You’re churning along with the usual reports, meetings and e-mail. Unless you work for U.S. Cellular, Intel or Deloitte & Touche, in which case, you can strike that e-mail off your to-do list. Why? Because these companies have decided to install a No E-mail Fridays mandate for all their employees. This forces them to call up their colleagues or – gasp! – actually talk to them in person.
- This photo has been on my To Show Everyone list for a few weeks now. Check out this disgustingly effective ad from Old Spice.
- Keeping with the photography theme, 3191 is a photoblog by two friends living on opposite sides of the country who take a photograph at every morning and then post the photographs.
- More Reason Why Oregonians Rock: My (former) governor, Ted Kulongoski, elected a few months back to try to live on the budget allocated by food stamps for one week. That’s $21 per person. Could you eat all your meals and snacks for only $21?
- Oy, my head hurt. The Australian Herald Sun has posted a test to see whether you are right-brained or left-brained. It is an image of dancer spinning. If you think she is spinning clockwise, you are right-brained. If you see her spinning counterclockwise you are left-brained. If you can see her spinning both ways, you are utterly amazing and please tell me your secret!!! As of this posting, I can only see her going clockwise and it drives me insane that people have said they can see her going the other way. I have no idea how they do it. I am very good at those hidden images you see in posters – it typically only takes me a minute or so to find the image. But my head feels like it’s going to explode after staring at the computer screen for ten minutes. Which way is she spinning for you?
