The Thursday Random

It’s Thursday, and I’m feeling random, so let’s go with it.



  • I only have two episodes left in Season 1.  Which makes me excited, but also sad that I’m almost one-fourth through the show.  Yes, that is just how addicted I am.  Already dreading the end, before Season 1 is even up.
  • Last night, I should have just kept watching Prison Break instead of tuning in to the Sens/Leafs game.  I would have been happier with the end result, I’m sure, if I’d stuck with Sexy Scofield. -_-


  • I know.  This is getting ridiculous.  I’m sorry.
  • Song that I like to belt in the car right now:

  • I’ve been lovin’ on this song for a while now, but I JUST realized this morning that I’m like the voice twin of Christina Aguilera.  You should hear me when I’m singing with her, and how I can hit those high notes.  It’s amazeballs.
  • Yes, I do realize that I’ve also called myself the voice twin of Sheryl Crow and Adele in the past.  What?  I am.
  • And people question my self-confidence level.  Pfft.
  • The big St. Paddy’s Day party is this Sunday at Gavan’s – the kick-off to the Irish celebrations in the Valley.  And I’m trying to decide if I want to go or not.  Part of me is like, meh, stay home and watch NASCAR and spend time with Michael, but then the other part of me knows I’ll feel like I’m missing something if I’m not there for even just a little while.  *sigh*  Decisions, decisions…
  • I miss french fries.  Like, a lot.
  • I’m starting to count down the days  to Rock of Ages… I’m going to see the live performance on Saturday night at the NAC with my siblings, and I can’t wait!!  I loved the movie, but friends who have seen the live show tell me I’m going to love this even more.  So excited!!!


  • It made me a little sad last night to hear the news that one of our greatest Canadian icons, Stompin’ Tom Connors, had passed away at age 77.  Immediately, I thought back to that legendary Shawville Fair in 2005, when a reported 40,000+ packed the fairgrounds to watch Stompin’ Tom perform.  I was one of them.  I may have very well been the most nervous person on the grounds – I’ve never considered myself claustrophobic, but I literally felt trapped amid the throng of rowdy, drunken fans, and my biggest fear was of a stampede starting and getting trampled to death – but man, what an experience.  And a memory that is now very dear.  Rest peacefully, sir.

Do you think Christina and Adele will have to give back all of their awards when it is discovered that they have been lip-synching to your voice?

Can't wait for the review on Rock of Ages! I hope it's as wonderful as everyone says. :)

Can't you do both, as in, go to the party of a bit and then go back home to watch NASCAR?

Reg and I are going to stop in to the Stompin Tom tribute tomorrow afternoon. I am going to read Bud The Spud for children's time. He was a true Canadian hero.

aw, I wish I was doing something for St. Patty's day. It's been years since I had plans for that particular holiday. Enjoy it for me!
