I spent the day reading for school, so I'm getting a late start on my Friday Random Ten. I'm sitting out on the back porch with a cup of black coffee on a perfect Chicago evening. And my Itunes shuffle is adding to it with one of the best random shuffles ever.
Our Beatles Rock Band for our Wii arrived today, so I have a feeling my daughter and her friends will rope me into playing. Twist my arm.
