Friday* Random Ten

*Fridays are overrated. Give me one good reason why they’re better than Saturdays.

Anyway, a couple members of our PostBourgie family are celebrating birthdays this weekend – Belleisa and Quadmoniker. So let’s wish them champagne dreams and caviar wishes and the whole nine.

Your soundtrack for the weekend and beyond, if you like:

1. Happy Birthday by Stevie Wonder (Belleisa)

2. Sing Me Spanish Techno by The New Pornographers (Jamelle)

3. The Smile by David Axelrod (G.D.)

4. Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton (Belleisa)

5. Y’all Ain’t Ready Yet by Mystikal (Blackink)

6. Celebration by Kanye West (Belleisa)

7. Myself When I Am Real by Charles Mingus (Quadmoniker)

8. Who Says by John Mayer (Belleisa)

9. One in a Million by Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth (Blackink)

10. Anniversary by Tony! Toni! Tone! (Belleisa)

I’m in Tampa, where today it’s 81 degrees and mostly sunny. Of course, there’s college football on TV. And I’m doing this post from my living room and not at my work terminal. Those are all legitimate reasons to like Saturdays.

So please, enjoy yours. And again, happy b-day Belle and Quad.
