My baby girl turned 7 today. I told her she was not allowed to have any more birthdays, but she went and did it anyways. She’s growing up too quick- making me feel old. It seems like she was just my little glow-bug- she was jaundiced a couple of days after I brought her home from the hospital and they hooked her up to some blanket/light thing… I remember when she was home…. she’d make the slightest noise and I’d jump out of bed to see what was wrong (and I could sleep thru nuclear war). I rememeber her saying things like popliar and renember… Now she’s a full fledged girl- not just a baby… independant as can be… Daddy’s little angel.
I hate that she’s growing up, but I love who she is becoming. She is so good-natured… so loving… so into wanting to know all she can about God… So curious… So happy…
Happy Birthday Heather! I love you sooooo much! (Or as you used to say… “I love you too much”!)
I figured I’d give ya’ll something to do today….
There are still folks out there who have never seen Burger King’s
Subservient Chicken. I figured I’d post him up here along with a few copies that have surfaced since…. Try em out… type in your commands and have a blast!
I haven’t posted in a few days…. Had the holiday weekend and all that.
Here’s a quick little update on life:
My daughter Heather is turning seven on Thursday. We got her a guinea pig for her b-day… I think she finally settled on Squeakers for a name. The little fuzzball is too cute. Hopefully we can get rid of it’s skitishness soon… gotta work on handling it a bunch.
Our church decided to do an outdoor service on Sunday. When we went out the door, we noticed it was a bit cooler than it had been… grabbed the jackets and headed on. We got to the football stadium and realized that there was absolutely nothing blocking the cold wind from hitting us straight on. About froze to death out there. But it was nothing compared to what the man who we were honoring went thru for us, so I can’t complain at all. Thank you Jesus!
I still haven’t made it thru a day at work since I quit wearing the patches without smoking. I have no problem not smoking at home…. but something about work stresses me out enough that I just can’t do it. Go figure.
Have I mentioned how much I love my wife? She is the best thing that ever happened to me.
Anyway- I think I’ll wrap it up there… I need to take some pics of Squeakers and get them on here sometime soon. Until next time…..
OK… I’ll confess… I’m a reality TV junkie…. I watch Survivor, Amazing Race, American Idol, and various other shows…. I can’t get enough! Luckily, with DVR, most are pretty short when you fast forward thru the commercials. Here’s a few thoughts on American Idol this week:
Fox screwed up and put the wrong numbers under 3 of the names on American Idol last night. Was it a screw up, or did they just want to try to get people to watch 3 shows this week…. Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…..
Anyway…. I figured it was my time to give my thoughts on these people trying to be the next American Idol……
So here we go:
Anthony Fedorov, “I Knew You Were Waiting for Me” by Aretha Franklin and George Michael.
Ok… this was his best performance yet… but that’s not saying much. This guy is mediorcre on his best night. he’s got a great backstory… they said he’d never talk, much less sing… but outside of 12 year old girls… I can’t see many people voting for this guy to win. The sooner they throw this guy off, the better.
Carrie Underwood, “Alone” by Heart.
Carrie is a great singer! She’s one of my top 4 picks for this season… Her version of Alone sounded great.
Scott Savol, “Against All Odds” by Phil Collins.
I’m not a Scott fan, but he has a great voice. But this isn’t just a vocal competition, and he’s not exactly the “chocholate teddy bear” type. I expect him to last awhile, but he doesn’t have a chance in Hell of winning this thing.
Bo Bice, “Time in a Bottle” Jim Croce
Bo is going to win. He’s the one guy on the show who looks like this is what he does. Simon was right saying that the rest look like they are in a competition, but Bo looks like he is a professional.
Nikko Smith, Sisqo’s “Incomplete”
Nikko has already been voted off once, and looks to have learned a little from it. He realized that every time he gets up there, he needs to put on the performance of his life…. mostly because he’s not that memorable in the first place. Nikko will be gone soon.
Vonzell Solomon, “Best of My Love” by The Emotion.
Vonzell doesn’t impress me much. She’s in the boat with Nikko. She can sing… but I’m like meh.
Constantine Maroulis, Partridge Family’s “I Think I Love You”?
I hate ConstantScream! Him being called a “rocker” is insulting to rockers everywhere. Dude is ugly, can’t sing, and has been pimped by American Idol beyond belief. I can’t wait for his week to go home.
Nadia Turner, “Time after Time” by Cyndi Lauper
I like Nadia, but she slaughtered Time After Time. That was a truly pathetic performance, but I doubt most people noticed…. They were too busy looking at her Grace Slick impersonation to hear what she sounded like. Her Frohawk was hilarious! Hopefully she comes back stronger… she’s another of my top 4 picks this year.
Mikalah Gordon, Taylor Dayne’s “Love Will Lead You Back.”
OMG – Cats in heat sound better than this girl. The funny thing is she’s taken over as the “vote the worst” choice… They were going for Constantine, but he’s got the 12 year old girl vote to keep him around awhile… I wonder how long they can keep the little nanny around?
Anwar Robinson, “Ain’t Nobody” by the legendary Chaka Khan.
Anwar sounds great when doing Stevie Wonder, but has sounded like crap the last few weeks. I think he has a career ahead of him as a Stevie Wonder impersonater, but I can’t see him on this show much longer.
Jessica Sierra,”Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler
Jessica rounds out my top 4 picks… She’s got that rasp in her voice that impresses the hell out of me. Plus, she belted her song out last night.
Basically, any of the following could go tonight and I wouldn’t be unhappy….
Anthony, Anwar, Mikalah, Constipate, Vonzell or Nikko….
But no telling how the votes will go this week considering Fox’s screw up…
