PIRATEY

1. It was another unexpected tear-jerker of a morning here at work. The songwriter who wrote "Holes in the Floor of Heaven" as well as "Come Some Rainy Day" was here, and that song makes me cry like an idiot every time I hear it. I don't even know why.

2. I can't wait to go to Memphis this weekend! Hopefully, little baby Fufu will let his or her mama have a little energy just long enough for me to get a quick, overdue visit in. If I can find gas to get there, that is. Is there a big gas scare in your town? Everyone is freaking out here and pumping gas into anything that'll hold liquid.

3. Speaking of going places, only week until I'm back in Alabama! Woo hoo! I'm excited for several reasons, certainly not least of which is getting to see (almost*) all of my friends and family.

4. Did you know today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Arrrrrgh, mateys. Walk the plank. Ahoy, ahoy. Shiver me timbers. Yo ho, yo ho. Davey Jones' Locker. Savvy?

5. I leave with you with this video. This was brought to my attention today at work. We are all dying for a recording of it. In the meantime, we'll have to settle for a video. Tell me what you think:


*Wes, are you sure you can't skip the convention?

    I really like Snow Patrol's original version of Chasing Cars. I think it'll work well for a country audience who maybe didn't catch it on the first go around, but they didn't do anything different with it. They only made it a duet. It's really good though. I'm just a little partial. Plus, it's a really intimate song. When I'm watching them sing it, it takes me out of it. It becomes about them. I'll stick with Snow Patrol. Sorry. :(

    Who dressed Faith Hill? Fire him/her.

    Spot on review. Good, not great. Only great part is the end when Faith really shows her pipes.

    On another note, amazing weather lately. Wanna go for a run?
