We Will Miss You

Thank you for being my friend for the past 13 years. We miss you so much, but we will smile knowing you are in a better place, chasing squirrels and eating hamburgers to your little macho heart's delight. Rest in peace, sweet pup.

I know you hated it when I put those purple 'Elton John' feathers in your hair! You looked adorable, though!

Raw Video: Presidential Seal Falls During Speech

I never tire of seeing this clip! I think this is hysterical and Obama handles it so humorously!

The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder

The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily PonderThe Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder by Rebecca Wells
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I felt let-down by this book after really liking Wells' previous works. So much of this story felt like it was sprinkled with sweetness-and-light southern sugar snowflakes and it just didn't feel believable. I felt like the beginning of this book was intended for overly sentimental pre-teens.

I was listening to this book tonight at the gym and got so annoyed by it, I turned it off and elected to watch The O'Reilly Factor, which was playing on one the TV's there. That was far more entertaining. At least he has a word of the day to look forward to.

FSE: Decode by Paramore

I've decided to catalog some of my favorite songs ever (henceforth "FSE"). I thought I'd start with a more recent favorite, "Decode" by Paramore. I discovered this song a couple of years ago on the Twilight soundtrack (don't hate - it's a good album!) and I've been a Paramore fan ever since. I was very excited to hear lead singer Hayley Williams' lovely vocal stylings on this summer's hit "Airplanes" by B.o.B. (which has become another of my FSE's). I LOVE her voice and I love the music and the overall feeling this song gives me is: "fall is here - get out your sweaters and a copy of your favorite teen paranormal romance". Bon temps, indeed.
