My dear husband, when you read this, I know you're going to want to listen to "Like a G6" and dissect the rhetorical pedagogy that is used in the lyrics. Er.. something. But please... PLEASE spare your wife the mortification. It's horrible! I am ashamed! Kesha is WAY better, just take my word for it!!!
I can honestly say that I enjoy listening to just about every song on my list of birthday #1's... but the top three would have to be Fantasy by miss Mariah, Smooth because I love Rob Thomas a ton and a half, and Gold Digger - not because I can relate or anything, but because I love Kanye West's music!
Last night my hubs and I watched Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" at the small theatre in town. Tonight, we're going to freeze our faces off at the last Ohio Bobcat home football game of the season. Which will be the last Ohio Bobcat football game I ever attend at Peden Stadium in Athens. I already predict that I will be a little emotional when the game is over! When I moved to Athens, I was a die-hard MARSHALL THUNDERING HERD fan that wanted absolutely nothing to do with the Bobcats. I gave them a chance. And now, I love 'em. I'm gonna miss them! GO CATS!
I hope you all are having a wild and wonderful Friday-eve. Join me on my Birthday tomorrow - I have an extra special post planned, and I definitely want you to stop by!
