BAIBS Friday 21/06/13

I've always thought Fridays should be easy. I nice stroll into the weekend but I find myself confused. I hate to be confused. Especially on a Friday. Appleberry. This is one of my confusing issues. A chap on the bus (yes the new fitness regime is still going strong) was drinking some energy drink containing appleberry. Surely that's not real. Remember the ylang ironing water incident though? I've been caught out before. Come here google my old friend.

Right, Appleberry. It's either a company that makes scarves, a care home in Berkshire or a font. Nothing that can be pulverised, mixed with 6 tons of sugar and called an energy drink. I knew it!

Next up, Wingman. OK we've all seen Top Gun and all it's dubious 'You can be my wingman' spiel. But I got an email yesterday from a site that advertises jobs in the music industry and the job in question was Wingman. Sadly to find out what it is will cost me £20 a month and I'm not that desperate. More intrigued. If I find out too late it's getting paid just to accompany a band on tour I'll be less than happy. Unless the band in question is Muse. I'd pay not to work for them.

I'm way too competitive. My kids will testify to this having suffered in your face defeats at Monopoly and sulks when I don't win. I try not to be, I just hate to lose though. Which brings me to Song Pop on Facebook. I love it. Reminds me of Bits and Pieces from the Radio 1 Roadshow's of my childhood (and phoning my friends to gloat when I got 10/10). But I'm even more competitive when it comes to music so my current losing streak isn't going down well at all. So if anyway out there knows nothing about music and agrees never to pick the 'today's hits' category please send me a Song Pop challenge.

It's a working weekend for me, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, starting today at 4.30 so I better dash. Get paid to see Funeral For A Friend tomorrow night though so that's a plus.
