Vote for Jason Castro

March 4, 2008

I’ve never voted for anyone on American Idol – but I will tonight. . .

This is a great song by Brandon Heath – I’m not who I was – so chill – great to hear in the car.


on Thanksgiving….

November 22, 2007

…I’m always thinking about my sister, and how we should be together at one of our houses, cooking up a storm — but instead, we’re a thousand miles apart, at other peoples’ houses. Sooooo sad.

Love you, sis — hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!


Kid Nation?

November 10, 2007

Is anyone else out there watching this show? Jodi and I were just talking about it. I must admit that when I heard the bad press before it started, I was appalled that parents would allow their kids to participate. I still sort of am appalled by that, but it’s not stopping me from watching it. 😉

My nagging question: did they shower? Where? They had to work so hard just to get the outhouses……


for what it’s worth

November 8, 2007

I’m totally behind the WGA. Now that word is hitting the streets about what shows will or will not continue to air, what’s going to be postponed or scrapped, a lot of ordinary people seem to be rethinking their positions, sort of like, “yeah! stick it to the man! ……………..oh, unless it interferes with 24, in which case, everyone should just get back to work!” Lame.

I’ve really been enjoying reading what Karen Hall has to say about it all — I mean, I always enjoy reading her blog, and am bummed that she suddenly has so much time to blog and all. In a crazy Internet-stalker sort of way, I kind of feel like this is all happening to someone I know. 😉

(I had to laugh at this post, because if I was suddenly at home by myself during the day, pitching the toys my kids have long ago forgotten would be near the top of my list. Hee.)


Cult TV meme

Untouched means I’ve never seen it. Italics means I’ve seen it at least once. Bold means I watched it a lot or watched it religiously. Struck out means I’ve seen it but didn’t like it.

Big Duh!

August 11, 2007

So, has anyone else seen the new Hyundai ad campaign? I’m assuming their running this drivel nationwide. It’s The Big Duh Savings Event. They’ve taken classical songs and sang them with a one word lyric – duh. If you like the songs (click on that blue link) you can even get a free CD of them when you buy a vehicle! BONUS! You can even make your own duh song.
It is so unbelievably insulting – that I can hardly stand it. If I owned a Hyundai, I would hide all traces of association with them. And, well there’s absolutely no chance I’d buy one now.

I’m always imagining sales pitch meetings – and how some of this stuff goes public. It says A LOT about them – and whoever their target audience is. Sorry Hyundai owners – you’ve been seriously wronged.
