Their time has come

Quoting something that hubby said yesterday “You know all those years we put up with Oxygen, Lifetime, WE and all those other channels.. well.. now its pay back baby!” Yep.. they’ve got their own channel now… Spike The New Network for Men. First it was The Man Show which was only an hour once a week.. now its a full network.. just for Men. Ok.. I will have to admit that some of what we’ve watched so far is funny… but gee.. why did they have to make Ren and Stimpy a couple?? Gary the Rat with Kelsey Grammer was funny and quite fitting since Gary is a lawyer who turned into a huge rat..very fitting. But wait! There’s more.. Stripperella, a cartoon Pamela Anderson show is coming on also. She’s an exotic dancer by night and a superhero too.. for the commercial it looks like ‘pumped up & blonde’ anime. Oh well.. we still have more channels don’t we Ok.. as for the name of the channel which was supposed to be called Spike, but then had to be changed because someone thought they were profiting from his name.. will football players have to quit “spiking” the ball in the endzone now for fear of being sued?? Can I not “spike” up my hair? Will the railroad have to change the name to “railroad nail”? Will track runners have to stop using ’spikes’ on their shoes? Will deer hunters have to find a new name to refer to killing a ’spike’? When referring to a change in the waves on a EKG (etc) can the tech not call it a ’spike’? When prices go up.. can we not refer to it as a ’spike’ in prices? If thats true.. I want PAM cooking spray to stop using my name.. hmm.. ok.. spike that idea.. its been around for 45 years, and I haven’t been.

Ending with clouds and rain

Looks like tropical storm Bill has pushed the rain up out way. Its cooled off a bit outside too, which is good. All in all we had a great weekend.. but now I’m ready to sit down and be lazy.

Yesterday we went and picked up the replacement grill (Happy Very Early Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary Honey!), along with a ladder from Home Depot. Nah.. the grill isn’t so big that we need a ladder, we need one to get into the attic (we’re going to put down more insulation), and since we had to rent a truck to get the grill home, we just saved time and bought a ladder too. We broke in the grill right away.. just some hotdogs for dinner, but today we made “Drunk Chicken”….mmmmmm it was awsome!

Tonight we’re smoking ribs (Winn Dixie had buy one get one free on baby back ribs!). I have a feeling we’ll(he’ll) be cooking out more often than before, but then again we were cooking out a lot then too!

Ok.. I’m off to see what’s on tv, or maybe use my free movie coupon. More later!

Woo..more bday presents!

More presents arrived today! Two more books and a very nice set of wind chimes with a celtic symbol on them that looks like my tattoo! Thank you very much!!! Now I’m wishing for wind so I can hear them play their tunes!

Deep thoughts

I found this over at Rayne’s blog, who found it over at Jennifer’s blog. This is what it says about me:

Very strong
a bit self-willed
does not allow contradiction or arguments
loves life
its family
children and animals
a bit of a butterfly
good sense of humor
likes idleness and laziness
of practical talent and intelligence.
