The Emperor's New Shoes

Rare is it that you can find something that just makes everything all better.

Children laughing. Your favorite scent (apple pie, morning coffee). Shutting someone down in Fantasy Football.

Or the perfect shoe. Yep, even you manly men have to agree, when you find a shoe (dress, sneaker, boot, etc.) that just says...you...it just makes everything alright.

Yesterday, I found that shoe. And it's so all good.

Confession is Good for the Soul (Brother)

Happy Holidays! As we look toward 2007, I feel it's time to come clean.

I cannot keep my hands off X-mas gifts under the tree. This year's been a little different, because I've been too busy/tired/distracted to try to figure things out, but for some reason, I love to know what's going on over there in that brightly lit, wonderfully decorated, and extremely enticing corner. It's probably best if a certain NFL Top Rankings checker (see jillyoung.blogspot.com) didn't set anything out until "the day of..."

Like I said, I've been good so far...but with 12 hours to go until "Our Kwanzaa", I don't know how much more I can take.

My methods are Solid Snake like for sure...like checking to see what's inside of the chocolate without anyone knowing. Prodding, sticking tiny holes in tissue paper, a quick shake, an inappropriate touching...nothing (in the past) has been out of bounds, and the packages still look in tact. A true ninja of Presents, if you will.

I feel much better now. Happy Holidays, all!

So Weird

Remember, several of you asked for it.

6. Much like K's problem with apples, I'll eat things with peanuts in them (brownies, Snicker bars, chewy granola bars), but I can't eat peanuts straight out of the can. Yech...

5. I have several CDs full of TV Theme Songs, that I sing along with, memorize, and can recite word for word, note for note. Yet it took me ____ to pass the stupid bar exam, which is just a big memorization exercise. Which is why when I put regulations and policies to theme songs, I passed. True story.

4. I can listen to a single song all day long and never get tired of it.

3. I love commercials. Sometimes, after we've watched a program on Tivo and finished it, and a certain someone goes to do something else, I'll watch the show again, but watch the commercials and speed through the show.

2. I secretly act like my life is a TV show, complete with where cameras would be, who would appear during the main title as opposed to after the main title (in the Special Guest Star portions), and what would be good cliffhangers.

1. I always read the manual for anything that I get that has a manual...and more than once.

Laurie P., Jeff P., ESPNgirl, Ellyn, Tim C. and White Chocolate Cox, consider yourselves tagged... If you don't regularly update your blog, put it in my Comment Section...stat~

All Good

After tomorrow, we may not get a chance to talk for awhile, as the Boys and Girls are coming back, so I'm thinking tomorrow should be another "List Day", 'cause I love me some lists!

And it gets you up on my current faves, likes, dislikes, etc...so come back tomorrow, gawk at my answers and fill your own in.

Everybody's gonna do it.

Not Good

I saw a Metro bus this morning that had "Scrumptilious" on the side, and it was all brown, as if to appear like a giant Snickers bar.

Unfortunately, it looks like something else, which I don't think they were aiming for...
