Five-Thing Thursday: June 20th.

Welcome to another installment of Five-Thing Thursday!

Here are Five Things that I want you to know:

Thing #1: There is a Ned Flanders (Yes, that Ned Flanders) inspired Metalcore band called Okiliy Dokilly. Here’s a link. You’re welcome.

Thing #2: It’s been so humid, and the air outside has been so thick, that you could cut a chunk of it out of the sky, wring it out, and use it to make soup. Can’t say I’m a fan.

Thing #3: Stay Hydrated. I’m serious.

Thing #4: What is playing on the Mental Jukebox this week: Shadows by Small Town Titans

Thing #5: Discovering lyrics to a song that’s been running loose in your head is like finding $20 in your pocket that you didn’t know was there.
