I was debating whether I should post the funniest thing ever.

Thus endeth the debate.

Two Things

1. Not one, not two, but . . . okay, yeah, two new American Idol Hollywood Week recaps are up at Beth's place (I Should Be Folding Laundry). I really do mean to brag. They're both awesome: Wednesday | Thursday.

2. I recently asked Addison what he and I had in common. He said that we both liked to play Wii. Okay. Then he added the best part. "It's not something we have in common, but it kind of is. We like the colors red and green." You should know that by this he meant that my favorite color is red while his favorite is green. So you get the part about that being something we don't have in common. So why is it kind of a commonality? He explained by making a laser sound effect and gesturing with his fingers to air-draw two lightsabers crossing.

Maybe we will rule the galaxy as father and son.
Seriously, I want to see the world through this kid's eyes. (Who am I kidding? I so do.)

I Should Be Watching Idol

A lot of people ask me if I'm going to keep doing American Idol recaps. (And when I say, "a lot," I mean it has happened before.) So if you are one of the many several two unspecified quantity of people banging down my virtual doors at a shot to see what I have to say about Idol, today, you should knock somewhere else.

Specifically, you should head on over to my friend Beth's place,, where Beth and I have completed our first tag-team American Idol recap. It's pretty fantastic if I do say so myself. If you like my recaps, you'll love Beth's take on . . . well, I think you'll love Beth's take on just about everything. You'll love her photography, too . . . this is a promise. (If you don't like falling in love with pictures, don't go to her site, it will mess you up.) Essentially, if you don't already (i.e. you don't know her) you're going to love Beth once you get to meet her, you know, at her house of blog.

If you're wondering if I'll continue to do recaps here, the answer is . . . blowing in the wind. I think I'm going to try something a little different this year. Doing recaps this early is new for me, so you're already getting extra recappage. But once the top 24ish field materializes, I'm going to recap in a new way that I think you'll love. I could speak more confidently about this if I was 100% sure what it was, but trust me, it's going to be not the worst thing ever.

First Thing

When the first two sentences you hear in the morning are . . . 

"Can we snuggle for a bit?"


"You're the best dad ever."

. . . it's already a great day.

Sorry, Thursday, you never stood a chance.
