December 30, 2011 – Friday 5

Quiet plans for New Year’s Eve. Maybe next year, I’ll start thinking early about where I want to ring in the new year. That said, I’m turning into an old fart who doesn’t really have a lot of interest in watching Ryan Seacrest trot out a bunch of tired celebrity whores for NYE. I’m a fuddy-duddy like that.
Fresh start soon, even if it is more of a construct than an reality. I’m certainly looking forward to hitting the proverbial “reset” button.
Onwards, to the Friday 5!
  1. What business establishment’s recent closing was the most disappointing for you?
    I never shopped there, but there was a home design place across the street from my office called Aspen Wood Glass Co. The front doors were beautifully-crafted wood doors for the showroom. I see it every day on my way to work, and it bums me out that they couldn’t make it. Then again, they could have moved showrooms to a new location. Who knows? /hope
  2. At what place of business or service are you most likely to be the day’s last customer out the door?
    Lately, it’s been the Starbucks in Willoughby where I go to get my Friday Night Iced Chai Soy Latte Fix. I’ve moseyed in there as late as 10:45.
  3. What place of business or service seems to be closed at times inconvenient to you?
    My doctor’s office never seems to be open when I get ill or injured. I should just start saying that the Chardon Fast Clinic is my PCP.
  4. Where in the real world (not online) will you most likely spend your last 2011 money?
    Wherever Charlie and I go for dinner tonight on our date.
  5. What business or service has been the biggest blessing to you because it is always open?
    God bless internet shopping. Love it!


Closing time: open all the doors and let you out into the world. 
Closing time: turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl. 
Closing time: one last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer. 
Closing time: you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here. 
Closing time: time for you to go out to the places you will be from.
losing time: this room won’t be open, tell your brothers or your sisters, “Come.”
So gather up your jackets, and move it to the exits; I hope you have found a friend.
Closing time: every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

One thought on “December 30, 2011 – Friday 5

  1. Starbucks, of course. When I was working on my Masters thesis, I was always there when they were closing up. I swore that when I finally got my degree, I’d drop a one-hundred-dollar tip in the tip jar as a sign of appreciation. I haven’t done it yet, but I plan to. :)

    Happy new year, and thanks for participating in Friday 5!
