5 Things: Long weekend, short videos edition


Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week. A huge "thank you!" to our armed forces, first responders, and their equally brave families this Memorial Day Weekend. The mixed blessing of a three-day weekend is before us (not looking forward to Tuesday's workload) but I hope you'll check out "5 Things" that might blow your mind... or give you a little bit of a giggle:

1) Any group called the D-Day Darlings seems like a great tribute for Memorial Day. (Yes, I realize they are British but no less relevant.) Warning: There's some Simon Cowell there and you may need the Kleenex.

2) Watch (or listen to) what happens with the Blue Man Group meets the Kodo Drummers. Unsurprisingly, it's a cool video!

3) A scientific (but delicious) approach to chocolate chip cookies looks a-mazing! I'm secretly relieved they didn't go with the coconut oil (not a fan) and cannot wait to give these a go. What about you? 

4) This trailer for Destination Wedding sort of found me today and I think it sounds like something I might actually like to watch. Wynona Ryder and Keanu Reeves play two mismatched wedding guests who are sort of thrown together while traveling solo. The story seems like a cute idea although maybe because I'm a sucker for Keanu Reeves... and can relate to going to weddings with a "plus one."

5) This video is from years ago (maybe 2006?) but I remembered how much I liked the Bluegrass version of Van Halen's "Jump." And I'm not even that crazy about Bluegrass but this is a really fun arrangement... dare you not to tap your toes!

Okay, that's all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
