A Few Things

Being it Friday, and now officially the weekend, the word of the day is QUAFF.

quaff \KWOFF; KWAFF\, transitive verb:
To drink with relish; to drink copiously of; to swallow in
large draughts.

intransitive verb:
To drink largely or luxuriously.

Additionally, the song of the evening will be Blinded by the Light, by Bruce Springsteen. Most people believe that this song is done by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO); however, that version is really Manfred Mann and the Earth Band. Springsteen is the one who originally wrote and performed this song.

Here are the lyrics of the first little bit. Enjoy the music while quaffing a stein on this pleasant Friday evening.

Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing, the calliope crashed to the ground
