A new non-meme post

I think this blog has taken a new character, new face–that of a photo meme blog.  Hey, I like doing/playing memes especially photo memes, but this was meant to be a vessel for my thoughts and worries.  That’s in the past.  Right now, my head is filled with run-of-the mill worries, but nothing that is worth sharing. 

I have been watching a lot of TV lately.  It’s American Idol season again that’s why. 

On last night’s show, I was amazed at how much I really enjoyed the performances as a whole. The first few singers were good, I thought. After all had sung, and believe me I was all focused on the show, which was something out of ordinary for me to do, three people made an impression to me:

Danny Gokey—that guy can sing and I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance, including his jerky, awkward dance moves.
Adam Lambert—0ne of my two favorites from the very beginning. He did a fabulous job I thought, but I was quite unsure when I found out that he was singing Black and White. He did good on that performance. I just hope there were enough people to vote for him, because I am surely not voting. I am merely a spectator. To quote my husband: “We don’t want to invest more time and effort to AI than we already do.”
Anoop Desai—-not a good impression, but an impression nevertheless. Okay here I go…..WTF is that guy thinking. I hope he’s not channeling the ghost of Sanjaya by being a goof. Okay I read some write-ups about the show last night and people say that while his song choice was bad, his performance and his singing wasn’t all that bad. I really really hope he sails to the next round so I can see that all my faith in him is based on solid grounds. And that he can sing at least one good song that feels like tailor-made for him.

The rest did not really register that much to me. I know that Lil Rounds is good, but quite boring. The girls are kinda boring to me this year. Okay, here’s crossing my fingers for Anoop. My husband wants him to stay long enough so that he can sing the Oscar-award winning Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire 🙂

Well that’s all for now.

My World #20: Spring is here.

I have been anxious about not coming up with a post for My World this week.  Of course I have something from the archives; isn’t there always something from the archives that we all can whip up into a post or two?  However, I’m feeling really lazy lately, tired as well.  Over the past two weeks, we had rainy days and grey skies, which I am thinking may have contributed a lot to my weariness.  Although, I am a self-professed rainy day lover, I think my body craves the warmth of a sunny day.  This weekend, our sunny days are back and are forecasted to stay the whole week.  So, on Sunday, hubs and I drove to Napa to photograph the wild mustard blooms, albeit a little late in the season.

My mood perked up a bit after soaking in a little sun from a little drive and finding that yes, spring is here, not just on the way.

Isn’t this a surefire sign that spring is here in my part of the world?

People biking along the vineyards. I haven’t done that yet, will pencil that among the many things I wanna do before kicking the bucket.

My World is a weekly meme hosted by a group of wonderful people.  Go and visit more world here.

Why you need to check thoroughly before hitting SEND

This one is priceless… A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.

Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel
schedules. So the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel.  There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife.  However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston , a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife

Subject: I’ve Arrived

Date: October 16, 2005

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I’ve seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then!!! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was…

Sure is hot down here!!!!
