Night Time

Every night for the past couple nights we say our family prayers, brush Hannah's teeth (kill the sugar bugs), and then I give her a piggy back ride to bed. Once we are in her room she immediately picks out one of her Disney princess books and asks me to read it to her. After I am done with the book she asks me to sing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (with hand motions) three or four times in a row. Then she will ask me to sing "Twinkle Little Star" at least once. After that she will either fall right to sleep, or continue playing in her bed until she goes to sleep.

Some nights I really don't feel like reading or singing the same songs, but I see her little face and she looks me straight in the eye, and she asks me in her cute little voice and I can't resist but doing her this little favor. I mean in all reality is the activity I would be doing instead of doing that any better? No way, because it would probably involve me laying on a couch watching some TV show I DVRed or a basketball game.

Speaking of that, it's about time for me to lace up the Nikes and head out to the church to play some basketball (as long as they don't kick us out).

MAD MEN: Simpson's Style

I love MAD MEN, and I also am a huge fan of The Simpsons, so to have The Simpsons spoof the MAD MEN intro just makes me giddy...


The NBA kicked off the season last night with a double header on TNT. I was out in the second quarter of the second game. Which meant I was asleep before 10:00. I was quite upset, becasue the second game was REALLY the game I wanted to watch. OH well there are plenty of games left including another double header tonight on ESPN.

Tonights Match-ups:
Phoenix at San Antonio 7:00pm (CT)
Lakers at Clippers 9:30pm (CT)

I LOVE basketball season! (Heather... not so much)

Your Problem Solved

On the 14th day of October the world was blessed (or cursed) with the presence of one Shane Michael Guymon. If by any chance you were having trouble figuring out what to buy a humble young boy from The Oak for such an occasion as spending 28 years on this old soil we like to call Earth then worry no more. I have managed to put together a list of great gift ideas for your viewing (perhaps buying) pleasure.

I've started to notice that my days have become recognisable to me by what shows I watch that paticular day. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it an epidemic? Should I be afraid? What side effects are involved? These are all questions running through my mind.

This is what I mean:

MONDAY: How I Met Your Mother, & Big Bang Theory
TUESDAY: Fringe (more details coming soon), Greek, & 90210 (What? Why?)
WEDNESDAY: Pushing Daisies (My ALL time favorite show on TV), & I go play basketball from 9:00 - 11:30
THURSDAY: The Office, 30 Rock, & Always Sunny In Philadelphia
FRIDAY: Nothing, usually a day I throw a movie into the mix
SATURDAY: Nothing, usually a day I throw a movie into the mix, or just spend time with Family & Friends
SUNDAY: Football, The Simpsons, Family Guy, & Mad Men (The show I mostly look forward to on Sunday)
