Very funny clip from SNL last night. Mrs. Muffin-Mother-In-Law shared this with me. Enjoy!


Oh What A Weekend

23 09 2007

It has been a good one but at the same time a rather disjointed one.

Let me get this out of the way first (consider it the “obligatory college football shout out” or as Mary would say the OCFSO): Auburn won last night and while they should have won, it is still just a relieft that they did win. Now we get to go play Florida next weekend in Gainesville. YUCK!

Moving on…

Friday was a happy fun time for me. I got a new vehicle. As you all know we traded in the black Jetta back at the beginning of the summer to get a new ’07 white Jetta as a part of that deal I agreed to drive Laura’s ’99 Oldsmobile Alero and I did which was no big deal (other than the fact that it is just getting old). About a week and a half ago I saw a truck out at one of the local dealerships here that caught my eye and decided to do some research on it…fast forward to Friday and I spent from 9:45 a.m. to about 3:15 p.m. at that same dealership. The best part though is that when it is all said and done I am now the proud owner of a 2003 Toyota Tundra that only has 36,000 miles on it and is FULLY WARRANTEED. It was a deal that couldn’t be passed up.

I have also been in class all weekend. One of the great things about a weekend class is that you only have to go about once every month and a half. The bad part about a weekend class is that you have to go from 9-5 all day Saturday and Sunday (not the worst thing in the world I guess, but sitting in a windowless room under flourescent lights can really take it out of you). Oh well. I will be done in just a little while and then I can go straight from here to MYF and then to a Youth Council type of meeting. Laura I guess I will see you sometime tonight around 8:30 or 9:00. That last sentence indicates what contributes to the disjointed part of the weekend (not getting to see my beautiful wife during most of it).

Ok…more like preliminary homework. As we all know, in January, we are going to get into Presidential Primary season and that is when the blitz of candidates wanting your votes will really start to kick in. I want you all to be thinking about who you, at THIS MOMENT, are leaning towards supporting. I know things will change as Primaries get rolling and as we get closer to actual election day, but for now I want to now what your early election thoughts are. You will be able to post these thoughts on a future blog coming soon.

A Roller Coaster Kind of Week

14 09 2007

It has been one of those. This week has been a fairly emotional one on a couple of different levels. I don’t want to get into it too much on this blog because every great now and then you don’t know for sure who is reading. If you want to know more though you can ask me in person and I will share where my ‘ups and downs’ have been coming from.

Tonight it is off to the church for some more 5th Quarter fun. Tomorrow will be another great day of watching college football and hanging out with friends (I’m really starting to get spoiled with these kinds of weekends…good thing I have to spend next weekend in class to keep me humble).

Stephanie wrote the other day about the greatness of the TV show ‘Friday Night Lights’ and I just want to also jump on the gravy train and say it is SO GOOD!! I believe a wise man once told me how great it was but I was too busy singing a song about a show that couldn’t survive the tide (Studio 60 you will be missed by me and like one other person probably). FNL is great it is a rarely seen, accurate depiction (mostly…I’m with a couple of you about the whole “when do they go to school” thing) of high school football in the south. Watch it now if you haven’t.

I’m off for now. More to come later.

It Is A New Week

10 09 2007

Auburn fans be damned (except for those of you who aren’t crazy-out-of-your-minds). We lost. It happens. We don’t need to fire Tubberville. The team will have practice this week like always. They will play again this weekend and things will be as different as last week and as unpredictable as the week after next. Everyone take a deep breath.

3 Hours and 15 minutes of boredom and frustration followed by 2 minutes of sheer terror!
