Get pumped sassy cats! It's Friday-eve, and we have 5,989 feet to cover. I'm a believer of signs from the Universe, so when the Brooklyn Bridge came up in two separate conversations this week I knew it would be the perfect topic for the "Googled" series comeback.

I'm sure you are all planning your Saturday schedules around the Belmont Stakes. Post time is 6:50 PM EST, so there should be plenty of daylight available for a few other June shenanigans.

One of my best friends from Boston College greeted me with "happy May" over gchat this morning. It sparked a memory of making May baskets with my Grandma as a young girl. My friend, Brigid, grew up in Minnesota, and when I shared the thought with her she immediately knew what I was talking about. It's a tragedy that our cubicles are 450 miles apart, or I would have most certainly carried on the tradition.
