School will really be out for me next Friday. It’s a return to work for me next week; a dose of reality after the heady days of nothing on my agenda. Enjoy this ditty from Weird Al Yankevic as he ponders the wonder of Ebay to the tune of the Backstreet Boys ‘I want it that way’. Nearly 20 million people have viewed it already on YouTube.
Probably nice to revisit a Weird Al Yankovic effort from the past while we’re at it. Here he is with ‘Eat it’, his parody of Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat it’.
I have to confess that I went to a Michael Jackson concert at Olympic Park here in Melbourne in the mid ’80s. It was far and away the best concert I’ve ever been to. It was at the height of Michael Jackson’s career; Thriller had been released and he was in the white glove phase. His dancing was brilliant and the show was nothing short of spectacular. Pity that 20 years on his reputation is not what it used to be.
I hope your weekend holds something special for you. Enjoy.

I so enjoy your School’s Out Friday posts. I just never know where you are going to go with it which is half the fun.
Now, my 5th grade son loves the Weird Al parodies too. One of his favorites is White and Nerdy: http://tinyurl.com/f7fnr
You know something Hiram, I never know quite where i’m going to go with them either! There’s never any set plan, I just go with what comes to me on a Friday. Sometimes it takes time and other times it’s a breeze. I do enjoy doing it; I like having something light to finish off the week. In my younger days I’d join my colleagues at the local Pub. Now I write a blog post! How times have changed.
I had never seen White and Nerdy. Tell your son it’s become an instant fave! 🙂
