Squeezed June 27, 2008

I know, it’s been a while since I’ve written here. Sometimes I feel I need prompting to get myself to write, such as a meme. One of the memes I found was friday5.org. Wasn’t quite interested in it at first, but after I found out that an online acquaintance of mine runs it, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. This will probably help me keep this blog current. So here goes.

1. What was the last thing you purchased from a vending machine?

A 20-ounce bottle of Pepsi at Kapiolani Community College. I was there for an amateur radio educational workshop on direction finding.


2. What was the last thing you made copies of on a photocopier?

Sheet music for a song. As a church choir leader, I make photocopies of music on a regular basis so that they have something to sing from.


3. When did you last use a pay telephone?

I can’t even remember, now that I have my phone attached to my hip at all times.


4. How often do you visit an automatic teller machine?

On average, once a week. My bank is a small one with not much market share, so they don’t have ATMs at major malls and such; only at their branches. Some people will probably say this is not the best strategy, but if I need cash, I basically suck it up and get my cash from the closest machine to me, damn the fees. I do take out about $100.00 each time and try to make the cash last a week.


5. Which of your daily tasks would you most like to see automated?

One of these days I want to get a good voice recognition program and giving it a try. I’d love to be able to speak to my computer and have it do my bidding.
