Word of the Day: Serendipity

Word of the Day: Serendipity

ser·en·dip·i·ty /ˌserənˈdipitē/ noun. The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way:  “a fortunate stroke of serendipity”. I think the movie marquee below is an excellent visual example of serendipity.

This is what the voice in my head sounds like sometimes.

Don’t Leave Me Hangin’!!

Don’t Leave Me Hangin’!!

Can we just all agree that high fives are great? They are like gifts; there is joy in both giving and receiving them. April 19th is National High Five Day or NH5D as the kids are calling it these days. In honor of High Five Day, go ahead and accept the virtual high five I have offered above. I’m sure you deserve it. Then watch They Might Be Giants’ “High Five” video (below) and check out WIRED magazine’s “How to: High Five, Treat Beach Wounds, Use Your Computer Remotely”. If you want to show off some of your new high five techniques on High Five Day, the Main Street Library and Eastern Avenue Branch Library will both be open from 9:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m. and the Fairmount Branch Library will open from 12:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
