Random Monday Thots
Wildcard weekend did not disappoint, although i slept thru most of the Giants/Falcons game. But Broncos/Steelers was one for the ages! Can they beat the Pats?
Got the music recorded for a new song last night. Still working on lyrics and melody but it’s coming together. slow building ballad that goes pretty full on at the end, i’m liking this one. 1 song a week!
Having a new dog has been a very fun experience…as long as you take her out often. She has quickly become a part of the family and seems to really love us all. She’s responding to “No” and isn’t whimpering quite as much when it’s crate time. She’s a playful thing but also loves to just crash at your feet or on your lap if she can swing it.
Still not sure about the GOP candidates…i just hope i have the chance to vote for who i want to vote for when it’s our turn for a primary.
played bass for South yesterday. i’m on for bass all month. i forgot how much i missed it with all the Scrooge/Christmas/Holiday stuff going on. i love to bring the thunder!
that’s about it for now, we’re just trying to get into the swing of things with new class schedules, work schedules, new puppy, a new driver and life in general in a new year.
Music, Elections, New Pets, NFL…Random Thots
Random thots in no particular order:
I’m taking a Facebook/Twitter/Google+ break for awhile. i just need to prove to myself that i don’t need to be connected electronically for most of the day. i want to connect in real face time, not screen time. i realize the good of those tools but also see how consuming it can be. i’ll be back on, but will just record some thots from time to time on this blog (which feeds into Twitter and Facebook…)
We’re finally getting a dog for Addyson. She’s a real cutie, shepherd/lab mix, 8 weeks old. Ad’s going to name her Lyla. We got her a cage for Christmas and promised the dog for her birthday and went and picked her out yesterday. We’re all really excited!
Listening to some great music today: Phil Wickham’s Response, The Hawk in Paris, Kris Orlowski, The Killers
Speaking of music, one of my goals is to write a new song a week. i’m currently mulling over some lyric ideas in my head. Riffs and tunes seem to come easy lately, it’s lyrics and staying focused on a single thot for a song that are the hard part. hopefully with a song every week, i can concentrate on not trying to say everything that’s in my head and heart in a single song
The Iowa Caucus kicks off the official election season tonight. As a conservative, i’m not real thrilled with the field right now. i’m hoping Rick Perry can swing it back in gear now that Cain is gone and Newt is fading. i like Santorum’s stand on family and such but his history is one of spending. i like Michele Bachmann but don’t think she’s ready to be president. Not a Romney fan. i like his business background, but he’s to car salesman for my liking and his history is bigger gov than i like. Ron Paul has some good econ ideas but everything else is to out there for me.
IA prediction: Romney, Santorum, Perry slightly ahead of Paul, Gingrich, Bachmann and the rest of them
NFL playoffs are also upon us. Holy Moly, i have no idea who will be in the Super Bowl. I would’ve said the Packers, but the Saints are playing amazing right now and the Niners are something else this year. In the AFC, the Pats are always good but vulnerable, the Steelers and Ravens are good and average…it just depends on the week. i like Tebow, but don’t think they’ll go very far. CRAZY SEASON!
I’m picking NO, Cin, Pit and Giants this weekend
