Random Tuesday Thoughts

Keely  is the host for Random Tuesday Thoughts.  Go check her out at The Un Mom for lots more fun Randomness!! 

So my 20 year old daughter is in Las Vegas until Friday.  She's not even old enough to gamble OR drink!  How is this fair?  Yes, I'm jealous!  She's there for a Paul Mitchell Convention.  She goes to a Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School on the other side of Pennsylvania.  So it's a learning experience.  Yeah, right.

We're getting some precipitation right now and it's ... RAIN, not snow!!!  YAY!!! (I'm writing this on Monday evening)

I keep discovering new authors and of course, they have series of books, so now I want all of the books in the series!  I just downloaded 2 more books in Paul Levine's Jake Lassiter series.  I really liked the first one!  

I few people commented on my blog post about Reading and have suggested a few goodies.  So now I have MORE books to look out for!  Good thing my Kindle can hold up to 1500 books!

I'm trying to write here, but Cameron has other ideas.  Do you think he wants some attention?

So Christina Aguilera really messed up the National Anthem.  It's sad that so many people don't know it any more.  She looked like crap too.  Why can't "professional singers" just sing it like we learned it in school?    Look and listen, if you can stand it.     

Have you met Bill Balsamico?  He's the owner of a restaurant and lounge in North Versailles, PA, located in Western Pennsylvania.  He puts messages on his sign outside his place of business, Casa D'Ice.  I love this guy!  He does NOT know the meaning of the term "Politically Incorrect".  He takes shots at local government, the President, Illegal aliens, and more!  He's now on Facebook and has his own website, Check out his website and you can see all of his famous signs!  Here's an example.  This is the sign he has displayed this week.

That's it for me!  Now check out some other Random folks!  I bet you find stuff you like!

I spotted that "cruise fund" jar in your photo. How's that coming along. LOL.

I've seen the casadice photos (there's many of them) floating around cyberspace over the years but had no idea where it was.

I was sitting in my office listening to the TV in the next room when Christina (which at the time I didn't know who it was who was singing), and the more I heard the song go on the more irritated I was getting. I couldn't stand listening to it. When I yelled over to my hubby who was watching "Who the heck is singing", I couldn't believe it was Christina. I normally love her voice, but WOW, did she blow it big time on this!

I'm a nut about reading books in a series. I love finding a good one, but if I'm jumping in late, I must read them in order or I will require therapy.

Happy RTT!

Christina Aguilera slaughtered the anthem. Sad really...

Happy Random Tuesday!!

I missed Christina singing at the superbowl--I was getting food ready--and it sounds like I didn't miss much. No pun intended.

One of the great things about your anthem is that, since it was originally written as a poem, you have a lot of artist freedom with it. Unfortunately, that kind of freedom is not always a good thing.

At first, I was impressed that Christina sang it acoustic and live, but then I guess she should have just lip-synced. :-P

Im with you-- Sing the National Anthem the way it was written.

I used to have a cat that looked just like yours :-)
