So its been awhile…

Here’s a quick summary of what’s happened since the last time I blogged.

We had an election. It went well. Did anyone else have this reaction to election night?

American Voter, just when I think you can’t get any dumber…you go and totally redeem yourself! Nice job America. Congressional Democrats, just when I think you can’t any dumber…you go and rehire Nancy Pelosi. Generally speaking, when millions of Americans kick you in the teeth, you might want to pay attention.

The Patriots beat the Steelers. I hate the Patriots. It’s a good steady hate. Not the infuriating hatred I have for the Cornhuskers and their condescending fans or the seething hatred I had for the Raiders when I was kid, but a good hate nonetheless. I’m pretty sure this is the reason.

Get a haircut Hollywood.

But that’s all neither here nor there. Whatever that is supposed to mean.

I’m listening to a lot more top 40 music now that Rye is in 5th grade. We listen to the daily top 5 every Thursday at 7:00 when she’s done with dance. A couple quick questions:

Does anybody else get a Vincent Price in Thriller vibe when you hear Snoop Dog in Katy Perry’s California Girls?

Am I the only one who thinks Ke$ha is just a 2010 version of Samatha Fox?

Or that you could take any Rhianna song and replace all the lyrics by saying “Rhianna” over and over and it would sound exactly the same?

Club Can’t Handle Me has definitely cracked the “Top Three Songs I Want to Hear on the Radio Driving Home on Friday Afternoon.” It’s right up there with Working for the Weekend and Gettin’ Better.

And Nike got the new uniform contract for NFL teams and plans to continue their war on history and tradition by forcing fans to watch their teams play in their Pro Combat Uniforms. Have you seen these? Now, I’m not adverse to a uniform change but that’s not a uniform. It’s a leotard. If the Bengals were performing a dance number, it would be perfect. On a football field the only positive I can think of is that opponents may need varying doses of medication to stop the migraines and blindness caused by anyone actually engaging in movement while wearing these things.

But that’s just me…
