Lion King

September 28, 2007

Has anyone else noticed that commercials have the coolest songs? Amanda & I have really been paying attention to commercials lately. Not for the product, but for the music. I know as an artist like Van Halen, it's probably selling out to have your music on an Old Navy commercial. BUT, as an upcoming star…or an unknown...I think it's fantastic. It's a great marketing tool and I, for one, am buying. iPod definitely has some of the coolest songs in their commercials. Next comes Old Navy and then any car commercial. Great songs. Cool songs which are now…on my iPod. I need a new iPod…I'm running out of room.

So, I got scolded from Amanda's dance teacher. I swear to God my mind has been completely scattered lately. Ever since Oreo or maybe even before that, who knows. I can't remember anything! I forgot to pay for her dance recital outfit. $40. I'm sorry, but isn't $40 a lot to spend on an outfit that will be worn only once? I think the next outfit is $60. Dude…can't you wear this shit more than once?! Whatever. Amanda enjoys the class and she'll match everyone on stage.

Yep…I said dude. That may be my new favorite word for the moment. It's really fun when you exaggerate it. Duuudddddeeeee. You can inflect tons of different feelings into the word as well. Like disappointment…duuude. Happiness…duuuuudddddde! Silliness…ddduuuudddeeee. Anger….dude. See?! So fun! You can borrow it if you want. I'm cool with that, duuuudddde.

Yesterday I was bored, of course, so I was surfing around MSN where I found this article. "Pick Up Lines You Must Avoid" Classic. You should be wary of anyone spouting these little gems.

*What sign are you?*Pardon me, I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I borrow yours?*You must be a broom because you are sweeping me off my feet.*Do you have a license? Because you are driving me crazy.*I got a thirst and baby, you look like my Gatorade.*Are you lost? Because heaven's a long way from here.*Are you religious? Because you are the answer to all my prayers.*Can I take your picture? I want Santa to know exactly what I want for Christmas.*Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?*Well, here I am. What are your other two wishes?

Awwww….poor little lambs! A couple are funny, I'd probably laugh. But most are delusional, some are torturous and all are cheesy. What are the worst pick up lines you've heard or said? And more importantly, have they worked???

Deep thought in progress. Let's talk about pride for a moment. Pride as in the dignified sense of what is due to oneself. Your own opinion of your merit, dignity, self-respect &/or self-esteem. It's a pretty huge topic and one that is rarely discussed. Everyone has pride. Some have pride that is too high and some have pride that is too low. Who is to say which is proper level, other than yourself? Whether it is based on what you think you deserve or what you think you are worth…..pride is something that certainly deserves more recognition. George and I were discussing pride yesterday. I said that pride is such a gas because sometimes it can be your sanctuary and sometimes it can be your demise. She said it's the famous double-edged sword. Should something that we rarely acknowledge have such an effect on our lives? If so, why do we not examine our own pride and become more aware of it? I know, I'm just yammering on. Pride could possibly be a thought that I will have to delve into at a later time. See! That's what I have been saying….we don't face our pride. We don't analyze it. We don't know its limits until sometimes it's too late. We push it aside for later exploration but still it is making itself known in the things we do. Hmm. Ok. Enough…..for now. I need to go watch the Lion King.
