Today I’m heading up to Fayetteville with some friends from work to see the Foo Fighters in concert. Trina has a friend up there that works for the University of Arkansas (GO HOGS!) that books the concerts. She hooked us up with 4 freebies! WooT! I think this should be a good time. I thought the typos and misspelled words on the credits after the video were funny. Gotta love little 13 year old hackers.
This is something I’ve got on my list of “To Get” items. I like to post pictures like this to keep my goals in mind. Kinda gives me something to work towards. Oh the joy! I will look dang awesome in this car. I’ve just got to get Trina on a test drive so she’ll get hooked like I am.
This car will be in my garage within 2 years. BET!
I came across a few videos this morning that just made me laugh so I wanted to share the laughter.
Watch this first video for the kid in the orange shirt. Crazy stuff….
This next video is pretty cool too. I know Trina would’ve loved to have done something like this at our wedding, but being that we got married in a small country town, I think most of Trina’s family would’ve looked at us like we were crazy.
Don’t worry, this one is clean. I had to be careful not to laugh too loud in the office on this one.
I just thought this was hilarious.
Maybe it’s the fact that Grant has been at his MeMe’s (Trina’s mom)house for the past couple of days, or maybe it’s that I’m listening to Coldplay (which makes you feel sappy), but I was just thinking about my son Grant. If anyone knows me very well, they know that Grant is the pride of my life. He is, with the help of his mother, my greatest accomplishment.
Anyone who is close to me knows (and my wife reminds me on a regular basis) that I am not a cryer or a very emotional person, but if there is one thing that gives me a lump in my throat and that weird feeling in my stomach it is my son Grant. He has such a sweet demeanor about him. He laughs a lot and he’s just a generally happy kid. He’s so smart too.
I fear for him and pray for him daily that God will protect him and grow him up to be a strong and God fearing man. Trina and I are reminded all the time what a dangerous and scary world this is to raise a child in. The only thing we know to do is pray that God protects him and allows us to be the best parents we can be for him.
Every night before bed I ask him, “Grant, who’s your best buddy,” and he says,”Daddy is best buddy.”
That’s all I need to hear.
Ok, so I have to come clean and make a confession right here on my blog. I LIKE CHICK FLICKS! Ok! I said it, I like chick flicks. Now, I don’t like to watch them by myself (because that would be less than manly), but I do like to watch them with Trina (my wife). I think it appeals to my sensitive side or whatever (cough, spit, crotch adjustment). I guess I am some what of a romantic deep down inside somewhere.
I think what I like about these movies is that they make you “feel”. Comedy typically makes you laugh, and action flicks give you that adrenaline rush, but these love story type movies really make you feel something in your gut. We’ve all been in love at one time or another. We’ve all had our hearts broken. We’ve all (or will at some point) experience the butterflies and utopia induced by the excitement of the early stages of a relationship.
Anyway…. Trina and I went and saw the new movie Definitely, Maybe starring Ryan Reynolds and Abigail Breslin. Abigail Breslin has been in a ton of movies lately and does a great job acting as a cute little kid. I don’t want to give any of the movie away but I thouht it was a good one.
I’m not sure any movie these days is worth paying freaking $7 for a matinee ticket (but that’s for another blog post), but a good time was had. Trina and I really enjoy going out to the movies together and it’s just money right?
Oh, also, I thought the title of this movie sounded familiar and then I realized where I remember it from. I believe Oasis’ debut album here in “the States” was titled Definitely Maybe. I thought that was a great album, but I am an Oasis fan so….. take that for what you will.
