Don't be caught this weekend without a topic! I mean one that isn't the weather! My notes in italics.
- Roadside Attractions Fading from Landscape Road trip photo albums are incomplete without some kitschy picture. To discuss: What are the roadside attractions of the future? Will there be any? And would you buy an Elvis Museum off ebay?
- Office Romance Scrolllll down on KPCC's Airtalk page, to the very last clip. It's all about a new book, "Office Mate: The Employee Handbook for Finding and Managing Romance on the Job." And here you thought Cosmo was giving you the best tips. Other than asking people if they think it's cool or not, I'm not sure what to say about this book... at least while I'm at work.
- Drinking with Ian Talk about it? You've probably appeared on the show! Angles: If you hosted a cable access show, what would you call it?
And let's pull a Columbo. One more thing...
- There's a projected Budget shortfall at $373 million. Hmm. I wonder which forecast will get more attention this weekend...the weather forecast or Minnesota's state financial forecast? Contrast and compare.
