Random 5 in 5

Five minutes for 5 Random Friday thoughts. Go!

1.  Protein shake for breakfast – feels like cheating 🙂

2.  Here’s a flashback to about 1968: me with one extremely large Tomcat, Tigger.  There were a lot of little kitties around who looked like him:

3.  No acuptuncture for me today.  Hubbs pointed out my 4 hour Dental appt that starts 15 min from now — yeah, probably not good to add PINS to the mix.  That’s Tuesday instead :).

4. It’s Friday!  Time to get my groove one … here’s the “real” clip to the song I posted a few days ago — have some “Uptown Funk” featuring Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars.  I love the dance moves, the horn section and the “super fly” feeling to this song.

5.  This picture inspired this post.   Dance like no one’s watching .. because they’re not. They’re doing their own thing or on the smart phone!

Happy Friday, peeps!  I double-dog-dare ya to write a post in 5 minutes.  Go!

  1. Went to exercise this morning and the place was closed. Sooo cranky! Owner has been closing because of illness. I’m sympathetic but it’s a business! Get backup! Then I read your email and the song put me in a happy place. Thank God for music! 4 hours of dental would put me back in a bad spot! Snow today but hopefully it will melt almost immediately. Love your R5!

    • I hear you — run the business or don’t. The tunes are great, played it again this morning with coffee. Uptown funk you up! 🙂 MJ

  2. 4 hours at the dentist???? Sheesh, girlfriend, I’ll be thinking about you today!
    Hope your weekend is great….!

    • it was long and grueling but I made it through — I’m sore and swollen though but the work done looks GREAT! 🙂 MJ

  3. PS Forgot to mention that I love the pic of you with the kitty AND the “dance” photo. I need to remember that when I’m feeling conspicuous.

    • He was one large kitty but actually a real sweetheart; he liked to lie across our laps and was nearly as big as we were 🙂 Dance like no one’s watching, Dianna!! MJ

  4. I hope your dental appointment went well. Four hours sounds too long. Thanks for the Bruno video. Loving that song.

    • It was the last of my “big” appointments — still very sore, but the work done looks great. I look like a chipmunk still 🙂 in time I will be able to smile easier.

      I just played that Bruno video AGAIN — digging that song .. Uptown funk you up, uptown funk you up! HA


  5. Wow, that is a BIG cat! But he was obviously very gentle and didn’t mind you helping him pose for the camera.

    A five minute post? Me? You know me better than that! 🙂

  6. That’s a marathon session with the dentist. I thought 1.5 hours was more than enough.

  7. The mere word ‘dentist’ stirs fear in the hearts of brave men. Yikes! Have a good weekend, MJ!!

  8. Love my morning protein shakes … and my monthly acupuncture appointments … and anything by Bruno Mars!
