Happy Monday!

Oops, I got sidetracked this weekend and never got around to writing a new post for the week. 🙂 We in Chez Harris were supposed to trek to the Big Easy over the weekend. There, we would attend a family reunion on my dad's side, tour New Orleans, and take a trip down the River Road where we would stop at plantations like Oak Alley and be amazed.

Alas, it never happened since, as I reported last week, my dad had a minor car accident. So what did we do instead? Nothing exciting. On the 4th, we went shopping for a bit, then went to my parents' house for a cook out (it rained, naturally). Saturday, home projects took center stage — and Saturday night, we trekked over to Decatur to see the Alabama Blues Brothers perform. They are AWESOME. If you like the Blues Brothers, these guys do an amazing job of bringing all the fun and liveliness of the movie and SNL performances to the stage. Great time.

Sunday, more home stuff — hubby put together some closet organizer things and I went shopping for flowers and groceries. Yeah, seriously exciting.

So now it's Monday, and I have that disorientation that a long weekend brings. You know the feeling, don't you? Where it's time to get back to work and all you can do is think about the laziness of the weekend?

I'll leave you with a little taste of the Alabama Blues Brothers. This is a promo for the concert we attended. I'd definitely see them again. Talented guys.

What'd you do this weekend? Anything fun?

I have an announcement….

My fellow Americans, as we approach the historic date of the celebration of our Independence, I have an announcement to make. Yes, I am running for president of the U.S. of A. See this news report for details! Thanks for your support. 🙂

TV stuff

Can you believe this is the last week of Idol? Tonight, the Davids face off. I already know which David I want to win. I've bought every last one of his Idol songs, and I love to listen to them. David Cook is the one for me. But, David Archuleta is likely to win because of the pre-teen/teen texting fan base who are in love with High School Musical and think he's tres cute. *sigh* So popularity and some talent will probably beat the mega-talent. Not that I'm all that worried for David Cook. He'll do fine, and I'll buy his first post-Idol CD when it comes out. I will not buy Archie's, however.

In other most rotten news, CBS canceled Moonlight. What the hell are they thinking??? Paranormal romance is one of the hottest genres going, and Moonlight was drawing respectable numbers, especially as the plot thickened. The first few episodes were cliche, true, but they seem to have found their stride now. And the writers' strike couldn't have helped. Viewers faded away in disgust. They'd have probably been back next season.

My favorite show, Life, will be back on NBC this fall. This is a cop drama I loved. The dialogue is good, and the guy who plays Charlie is fun to watch in action. This is a revenge/justice show with money, Zen sayings, and a lot of fruit. Great stuff.

My other show is ABC's Pushing Daisies. It'll be back too, thankfully. I don't know how far they can take this one, but I'm in it to see. Cracks me up every week.

In case you've been on, oh Mars or something, the last few months, here's one of David Cook's best live performances. He's amazing. Wait for the high note….

What shows are you looking forward to? Did they cancel any of your favs? What about Idol? Who do you want to win?

The difference between men and women

Okay, so I'm cheating by having video two days in a row, but this is important research. Finally, the difference between men and women explained. Hubby sent me this. Hmm, wonder what he's trying to tell me?

Thursday video fun

If you have a cat, you can sympathize. Too funny. What is with cats, anyway? They want attention, attention, attention. And then they pass out when you're at your wits end and ready to scream. Or, better yet, when you're trying to sleep, they wake you up. They aren't happy until you get out of bed, and then they curl up and go to sleep right in front of you.

This is a cool video. This guy is talented. 🙂 Enjoy.
