Long day and cranky.

- Dislike
I dislike Apple, Radiohead, Private Practice, Taco Bell, Toyota Priuses, The View, PETA, vegetarians, Johnny Cash, Taylor Swift, cold weather, doing laundry, 30 Rock, cardboard, sunflower seeds, goats, California,

that's good for now.

World Cup

- Soccer
Yeah I'm calling it soccer. I'm an American. I'm not going to call it football just to make it seem as if I care. I know all kinds of fun words like 'pitch' and 'pace' now as well, but I'm not about to use a few words just to make it seem like I'm part of the crowd. ;)

Anyways the teams the U.S. will be facing are not a group of powerhouses for once. England will probably have their way with us but the other two games are solidly winnable. So there's a decent chance that we can make it into the knockout round (a.k.a. single elimination round or in college basketball terms you could call it the sweet 16)
And that would be a success for us considering our history. Advancing into the round of 8 past Serbia or Ghana seems like it might be too much to hope for.

Who the heck is Nick Cannon?

- Music
'Gigolo' by Nick Cannon. I have a soft spot for songs about being a gigolo. My dad is said to have been caught singing 'Just a Gigolo' by David Lee Roth while in the hospital waiting for my youngest brother to be born.
I think it's a pleasant 'soft' boast since pretty much no one ever calls themself a gigolo with a straight face. Can you?
'Just a Gigolo' was kind to me when I sang it to open karaoke at my Brother in law's wedding. It's just a fun song. Nick Cannon's version is fun for different reasons. I like when he says the 'shawtees' call him the scarecrow cuz he lookin for some brains. I don't really get it but I think it might be funny. Well I laugh anyways.
