RTT: Music, Australia, and Oprah


I posted a lot last week. I don't know what was up with that. But now I'm back for another fun edition of Random Thoughts Tuesdays.

*I love Bon Jovi. He shot me through the heart. Gave love a bad name. And helped me live on a prayer. I loved him back when he had big hair and wore horrible, skin tight, zebra print pants. I also think he's just an all around nice guy. He gives money to charities and takes an interest in people. That being said though, I think it's time for him sit back and rest on his laurels. I'm not a fan of the new music he's been putting out lately. I saw him in Australia on Oprah last week and think it's time for him to let it go. His voice is just not what it used to be. I'll always love him though. Dead or Alive.

*Speaking of Oprah and Australia, wow! What a great trip for her fans. I want to go to Australia and meet Hugh Jackman and sail with Russel Crowe. And I'd like Oprah to pay for it.

*You think Oprah would let me be her secret half sister?  I'd be the best half-sister she ever had. 

*You'd think with all the mentions I make of Oprah, she'd at least say hi.  I mean really.

*Do you remember like a decade ago when The Bachelor was an okay show to watch and not just full of plastic bimbos willing to whore themselves out for 15 minutes of fame? Yeah, me too. Anyway, Bachelor Bob was my favorite Bachelor. He was funny. In one episode he was talking about the band Journey. He made the statement anyone who says they don't Journey, is a damn liar. True that, Bachelor Bob, true that. Journey rules. I'll never stop believing!

*We were watching the Today Show on Friday (IIRC) and they had a violinist on there who played classics with a rock twist. He was awesome. Indy (who plays violin) came out to see and said, "Isn't that Beethoven?" James Bond and I were happily surprised. Is WAS Beethoven! Yay for having a good ear.

*Indy went to a Harry Potter birthday party this weekend. He had a great time. Afterward, we had the following conversation:
Indy: "Mom, why haven't you read me the Harry Potter books?"
Me: "Read them yourself."
Indy: "I'm 8. And dyslexic. You could help a kid out."
Me: "I think you can try the first one."
Indy: [Dramatic Sigh] "And I thought you loved me."

*I put my iPod on shuffle.  Here are the first 5 songs that came up:
-High On You-Survivor
-The Trolley Song-Judy Garland
-Ain't No Sunshine-Bill Withers
-Billie Jean-Michael Jackson
What does that say about me?

*Indy:  Today on Dr. Phil, something emotional will happen.

*Weird things I've eaten this week: a whole red bell pepper.  Really, I just cored it and ate it whole.  James Bond thought I was nuts, but it was DE-licious.

*I can honestly say that I personally know all 167 of my Facebook friends. I don't friend people I've never met. It always makes me suspicious when someone has 800 friends. Nobody knows that many people. Except maybe Indy. Seriously, everyone seems to know my child. It's weird.

*Do you remember when companies used to have sweepstakes and prize give aways and you knew instantly if you won something or not? I miss that. Now you have to go to a website and register (thus getting ensuring that they will spam you forever) and enter a code to see if you've
won. That really annoys me.

*My signature is on the blink.  Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not.  Very annoying.

*I'm throwing a baby shower this weekend for Chiquitita and I've done....pretty much nothing.  My house is a disaster.  The favors aren't finished and I haven't started making the decor.  I should probably get on that, huh?

*They should check their spelling:

*And finally, because it makes me smile.  Who wouldn't love this sweet little face?

Happy Tuesday everyone.  Go check out all the other randoms.

Indy's right, you could help a kid out. Maybe read them together? I love Bon Jovi, too. So much that a friend who had to meet Jon at the airport (he was in charge of the airport in CLE at the time) totally embarrassed himself to get me an autograph. Swoon.

Your random songs say that you're awesome, that's what they say. :)

Indy has the best quotes!! That kid cracks me up. :)

I really like the range of your music. I am just the same way!

Stacy Uncorked said...

I totally agree with you about Bon Jovi. Love him, but maybe it is time for him to sit on his laurels. ;)

Indy totally cracks me up! I bet we'd be rolling with laughter if he and Princess Nagger ever got together to commiserate. ;)

The songs on your iPod simply mean you have good taste.

Nice mix on the iPod, and Bob was right. Always loved Journey. I'll throw down the Speedwagon as well.
