Wednesday 5×5 for September 12

September 12, 2007, 8:07 am

I always like to visit the blogs of people who take time to comment here at Casting Out Nines. When I visited Mike’s blog, I got a pleasant surprise — the notion of a 5×5. As he writes, a 5×5 is just a collection of five lists, each with a different topic, and each containing five entries. I love lists and blog readers seem to be attracted to them, so I thought — why not steal appropriate his idea and do my own? Besides, I need more weekly features than the Friday Random 10. So, here’s my first attempt.

5 Things I’d do with Powerball Winnings

  3. Set up college fund for somebody else’s kids, like my nieces and nephews
  4. Set up retirement account for my wife and me
  5. Buy that kickin’ 36″ cinema display that I saw at the Apple Store (would wipe out all remaining winnings)

5 Good, Cheap, Low-Tech Productivity Tools

  1. Hardcover lab notebook
  2. Pilot gel pens
  3. 3×5 Index cards
  4. Spiral-bound memo pads
  5. Binder clips
