Surgery, Crystal Bowersox, Chef Ramsey and the President~ RTT
If it's Tuesday, which I've been told it is, it must be time for some more randomness. Random is good. Helps to get out the bits of thoughts swimming through my head. If you're playing, head on over to The Un Mom when you finish here and link up.
I didn't go to Raleigh last week as my brother's surgery was postponed. He had an upper respiratory infection and they didn't think it would be a good idea to do neck surgery. I have to agree. The surgery is rescheduled for this week and I'll be headed that way Sunday or Monday.
Does anyone watch Kitchen Nightmares? I've recently caught a couple episodes and they crack me up. After spending 17 years as a restaurant manager I can relate to some of these bone-heads who have no clue. Strike that. I can relate to Gordon's frustrations with the no-clue-boneheads. That last girl who bought a business (restaurant) after completing business school was laughable. Who thinks this is a good business venture when you know nothing about restaurants? I'm amazed the staff stayed around. Hopefully they got the epson tm-t88iv printers with their new computers. I'd like to know how they're doing now.
American Idol is dwindling to the top 12. Crystal Bowersox is my pick to win it. I just hope she can stay healthy to complete the competition.
60 degree weather yesterday. Puddin Pop and I planted some flower and strawberry seeds. Hope we don't get another cold spell before they sprout. We put some inside too, just in case.
I'm just finishing up my Ambassadorship with The View. It was a lot of fun tweeting during the shows. Now I'm a Juicy Insider (I know, sounds kinda pornographic) for Tropicana. They have some great savings on things here local. You get codes on qualifying purchases and can use the points for discounts on travel, lodging, museums and more. If it stays warm I'm going to take PP to the zoo this week. Free child admission with an adult ticket. It's always nice to save money on things you'd buy or do anyway.
Boog was helping the neighbor pick up some broken porcelain on her sidewalk yesterday. She told him if he continues to be this helpful and nice he just may find himself in the President's office someday. He thought that was cool. I have to say that I want my kids to do what ever makes them happy and be successful at it. I've never dreamt of my kids rocking the Oval office. Just sayin'.
