now playing: Alive – P.O.D.

okay, okay, i know i need to write more… it’s February already for goodness sakes… and tomorrow is the Superbowl and i’m excited about that, but i’m also nervous because i’m supposed to share my testimony tomorrow at church as well… that’s been a sore spot with me for most of my life…

anyway, i’m gonna try to buckle down here in the next few days or so and cover a variety of topics including three book reviews, a number of television shows to chat about, a ton of music (i finally finished logging all the CDs i have – well, most of them)… and more, more, more…

this entry is just a quick hey there, i’m still alive and well, plugging along one day at a time… and, oh, by the way, oreo cookie bark is the BOMB!

peace… love… bdg…

So i think the biggest injury of this coming year is going to be Wii Tennis Elbow… but i guess it’s more of my shoulder that’s sore… actually, never mind, i can’t admit that i’m sore from playing a video game… really, it’s just hard to imagine that this year is already two weeks old and this is my first entry for the double-o-nine…

that means, that this can get really long, really quickly… and one of my resolutions – if you want to call it that – is to write shorter, more concise blog entries… i know you don’t have much time to read my ramblings and i appreciate the attention you do offer me, but i want to respect that and also, in theory, the shorter the entry, the more likely, i’ll be to actually write them… of course, that may mean that there will be more short entries, equaling the length of longer ones, but you can pick and choose what you read… anyway… let’s get to something, shall we?

DONE, G!

to the tune of Farewell – Brooke Barrettsmith

my favorite football coach officially announced his retirement yesterday… Tony Dungy called it quits, citing the need to spend time with his family… Obviously, i hate to see him step down, but i certainly understand and am quite happy for him and his family… Would’ve been awesome to see him lead Payton Manning and the Colts to a Superbowl victory over Eli Manning and the Giants in Tampa, but alas, it’s good to have been able to watch him over the years and appreciate the amazing witness he has been in his position…

WIN OR…

to the tune of Victory – Randy Newman

So we’re down to the final four here in the NFL and 3 of the teams are named after birds… and 3 of the teams are Wildcard teams… and 3 of the teams i’d be okay with seeing win… the odd man out on all counts is the Pittsburgh Steelers… i just can’t stand the Steelers… Anyway, i’m pulling for the Cards and the Ravens, but i’m expecting the Eagles and the Ravens… however it ends up, it’s been another great year of playoff football… (Last year’s post-season was probably the best i’ve seen)… it’s sad to see the season go, however… but hey, American Idol started up last night, so all’s not lost…

GO HOME…

i’m heading out for now… got a huge plate laying there before me… and lots of stuff to engage myself in… i’ve got TV to talk about, i’ve got 3 books that i just finished reading over the weekend… i’ve got a couple books that i started working on reading… i’ve got music to talk about… i’ve got a lot to work on and a lot to deal with… until next time…

peace… love… bdg…
