Miss Emily

Emily Renee was born @ 5:04 am on 4/15/08. She is the most beautiful girl in the world and if you don't believe me, please see the video tape.

In 25 years when she is finally allowed to date, I'll be interviewing wealthy prospects for eligibility.

My New Favorite Actress

Through a series of internet rabbit trails (which started from a post about "blogger night" at Dodger stadium - to a visit by Alyssa Milano), I have determined that Alyssa Milano is my new favorite actress. She loves baseball and writes about it (I'm going to assume that she is the one writing her blog). She will replace Natalie Portman effective immediately at the top of my favorite actresses list. "Who's the Boss?" was a fine show, so she's got that going for her as well.

Only in Polk County

Since I did not have my camera with me tonight, I cannot show you exactly what I saw, but I'll try to give you a visualization with some pictures from the internets.

That's right, it was an airboat being towed by a Cadillac. A nice, new Cadillac that probably cost $30,000 to $40,000. I can picture them at Lake Hamilton (which was the direction they were coming from), backing down the boatramp, getting the whitewalls dirty. It made me and the Mrs. chuckle all the way to dinner.

The Extra Mile

We had a garage sale this past weekend. I put my CD collection up for sale and sold 100 crap CD's from the 90's mostly. I priced them at $1 each and was surprised at how many I sold. When I was going through the CD's, dusting off the cases, I came across a case for which I had no CD. There were several of these, most of which I could reasonably account for where the disc had vanished. Some had been given away, some were ganked by friends and some were thrown out the window in Chattanooga, TN for one reason or another, but one CD could not be accounted for...

This CD defines a generation of "totally awesome" Christian music. I think I bought this while at a Dawson McAllister student conference at Carpenter's Home Church. Then, I think our youth choir did the musical that went with this CD. Do they still have musicals for youth choirs? Because if they don't, a generation of kids are missing out.

So if you've seen my Al Denson CD could you please let me know? Or if you have it and can burn me a copy, that would be great. I don't know if I can make it through the day without some "Call Me" or "That's What my Father Would Do."

World Malaria Day

If you've got spare time (and who doesn't?) and want to help out a good cause and have fun at the same time, the United Nations has got you covered. They get involved in world politics and haven't been the biggest fans of the USA lately, but they are all about helping fight malaria, and that's good, one less thing to worry about.

Go there, play the game, register your email address, and they will send a mosquito net to Africa for your troubles. It's like the free rice game without feeling bad because you read at a third grade level.

It's a win, win, win.
