5 things I've looked up very recently, with answers and expectations where applicable

  1. The spelling of thresher. I thought it was threasher, and was hoping it was thrasher, but it was neither.
  2. The original band name for Journey. We all had it in our head that it was something more exotic than Golden Gate Rhythm Section, but it was revealed that Steve Perry's band before Journey was named Alien Project, and we decided that what what we were thinking.
  3. The lyrics to Marshall Crenshaw's "Someday, Someway" to decide whether it would be appropriate to play on acoustic guitar at a wedding pre-party. There is a lot of taking things from each other and a good bit of crying in there, but I think the buoyant romanticism of the delivery overshadows all that.
  4. How to get Word 2007 to repeat a value entered in one form field throughout other fields in the document, specifically in the header and footer. Still looking for a satisfactory answer for this one.
  5. The name of the new Woody Allen movie, starring Larry David playing the Woody Allen role. It is Whatever Works.
