Playoffs, Classics and the Cutest Dog
Pittsburgh at Denver last weekend and the playoff games this weekend are far better than the Super Bowl will be. It’s gonna be a great weekend of football! here are my picks: NO over Niners in a tight one. i’m rooting for Tebow, but think NE will win. i’m thinking it will be tight until the 4th quarter and the Pats experience will overcome, dang it. Baltimore will beat Houston in the most unexciting game of the weekend. and finally, GB will beat Giants in another close one. it’s going to come down to a turnover or special teams play that’s the difference.
I finished Grimm’s Fairy Tales in my journey thru the classics the other night. After reading about evil dwarfs and spells and money or toads coming out of your mouth when you speak, Alice in Wonderland doesn’t seem so bizarre. I’m now reading The Jungle by Sinclair. it’s a long one, but seems to be going pretty quickly so far in spite of the Lithuanian he keeps throwing in.
Having Lyla is going so well. She is definitely growing and becoming more and more a part of the family. she’s getting better at potty training and loves to play and cuddle and just be generally cute. except for the landmines in the backyard, she’s a blast.
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.
