An Open Letter to the Cicadas

Dear Cicadas,

Will you please…shut up. Holy cripes, you stupid bugs are loud…and you are stupid, stupid bugs. All you do is make a lot of noise…and then fly into windows. Seriously, you are the dumbest bugs the world has ever seen.

Oh, and when I accidentally step on part of you…I don’t need you to hiss at me, or whatever weird noise you made at me yesterday.

You’re big…dumb…and pointless. Go back underground Cicadas…have fun sleeping for 17 years. Real nice life you have there.

Sincerely,

Me

A Big Day at Home

So last night…at 6:03…our 3-year old Dexter runs up to me, and says “Daddy, I have to poop”…and he runs off to the bathroom. He sits…and presto…poopy in the potty!

Holy cow, that kid was excited, and Jennifer & I were so excited for him.

For the past month & a half, we’ve been telling him, if you go poop in the potty, you’ll get a “Big Buzz Lightyear”. He hasn’t had a pee-pee accident in the past week, but the pooping in a potty was a big hurdle.

Last night though…he got his big Buzz Lightyear…and even though we would have let him sleep with it…he decided to hide it in his closet…because quote “don’t let Sammy (our cat) play with big Buzz Lightyear”.

Branden Oliver’s “Kick Off is Coming”

I’ve had the privilege to enjoy this song for a few weeks, and it’s an AWESOME song. Branden is, as they say, crazy talented.

The video Branden (and his buddy Max Moore) made for the song is tremendous.

We were honored to be part of the video…and hopefully the out-takes will never see the light of day, ha ha.

Do You Know What’s Good?

The Hyvee Hickory House “Alabama White Sauce”. That goes good on anything…steak, hot dogs, even potatoes.

Back To School Movies

Do you know what’s not fair…all of us that had to move in to college more than 4 years ago. I remember when I moved into Drake..it filled my mom & dad’s minivan freshman year…and then sophomore year, my Blazer was packed to it’s breaking point.

Thinkg about it…the big bulky TVs…the big bulky computer…the giant CD rack with 100 CDs…3-4 boxes of clothes…and so much more.

Now, you can get to college in a sedan….all you need…Ipad, Ipod, laptop…and clothes. That’s it. That’s barely a trunkful. Yes, I’m a tad bitter.

I think it was E! online that named the 10 Best School Movies…

Here was their top 10

Mean Girls,Dead Poets Society,Clueless, Breakfast Club, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Heathers, Revenge of the Nerds, Election, Grease, Animal House

It’s a fine list, but surprise, surprise, I have a different list…here’s my Top 10.

The wrecking ball is a euphemism…at least that’s what I gather from you writhing around on a swinging wrecking ball…buck naked.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
