The King of Pop

Thursday was a tough day for those of us who grew up in the 80’s. I was ten years old when Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” album came out. I remember going to Walmart to get the album just like it was yesterday. As some have stated the Generation X version of Elvis died yesterday. Love him or hate him his music will live forever. Prayers go out to Michael and his family. R.I.P. the King of Pop.

Facebook usernames

I read where some one million people signed up to get their facebook username in less than a hour last night. That’s some serious stuff folks. I was one of those million so all is right with my facebook vanity url for now. I didn’t however get my first choice so I settled for facebook.com/dcotton. How many of you didn’t get your first choice either?

The Magic are down for the count

Really enjoyed watching Game 4 of the NBA Finals last night. The Magic had the game won if they hit their foul shots at the end of regulation. I grew up a MJ fan and Kobe is no MJ. Here’s hoping the Magic can find a way to get back in it and make it a series.

Time to cut back on sweets

Not all sweets are bad of course, but I came to the realization over the weekend that I needed to cut back if not out altogether if I wanted to get in good running shape.  So I put that goal in motion on Monday and haven’t looked back. Another thing that I’ve decided to do is not eat anything after 9pm. I’ve heard going to bed hungry can be a good thing.  I’ve decided to run with that idea as well. Time to practice what I preach.

Which smartphone should I get?

I’ve been holding out on getting a new phone for awhile now. The main reason is that I’m trying to decide between the Palm Pre and the latest Iphone due out at month’s end. The Iphone is the ultimate game changer, but something about the new Pre has me thinking about going in that direction. Would love everyone’s feedback. Feel free to leave a comment with your pick to click and why.
