Lame Butt Randomness

I will start by apologizing for a lame butt day of blogging.

I’m wiped out from watching six 21 year olds having a fantastic time for 2.5 days. Okay. Possibly I did some participating because they wanted me to and I’m paying today.

NaBloPoMo has left me with a bit of stage fright, errrr, lack of ideas.

I'm sort of freaked out by the TrifeXXXta (did you catch those triple X's?) prompt this week ;-).

I'm full of excuses.

I hung the sign on the door. NO VACANCY. This B&B is officially closed for 24 hours while sheets and towels can be washed, house cleaned, errands run (unless they can perform themselves), food prepared and table set so another round of guests can arrive tomorrow about 1:00pm.

I don’t feel sorry for myself but I don’t feel like doing anything either.

And I must have a lot on my mind because I’ve been up since 5:00am. Sucks for me!

Maybe I will step away from the computer and read. I have to wait to change the laundry anyway. What am I reading? I decided to put all my other books down and read Spring Into Summer  by Eden Baylee. Just google it! You’ll quickly discover how I will be spending my afternoon.

Did you see the American Music Awards? I did not (see above mention of guests and birthday dinner).  Well my girl, Pink was all the rage. Check out her LIVE version of “Try” as performed at the AMAs.

(not the best version I've seen. Check out her Facebook page for a better one)

And you know those tickets I’ve bragged about having for her concert on March 9th that I bought the minute they came up for sale? I purchased 4 tickets for $250 each. They are currently valued (for sale on E-Bay, Ticket Liquidator, and Coast-to-Coast) at $535. I will hang onto them until February then sell them to finance ever kickass-ier seats!

Also, Kid Rock’s new album became available for download yesterday. You bet my iPod is rockin’ new tunes as I write.

Thanks to Stacy Uncorked, Seriously Shawn and Impulsive Addict for putting up with my random lameness today. I need toothpicks for my eyes!

You're hilarious. Good job picking up those tickets at $250, that's expensive but must be worth it!

I'm done with NaBloPoMo. I just didn't feel like it. It wasn't even that I'd run out of ideas. I simply just felt...meh. I'm glad you're sticking it out, though. Just a week left!

Happy Thanksgiving, Gina. Your blog makes me happy. I miss having kids, big and small around the house.

Mind Of Mine said...

I have heard great things about Pink's performance at the AMA's.

Have you ever seen her in concert, she really does put on a good show.

Kid Rock's CD is on my Christmas list. Can't wait to check it out! Yea, I'm still one of those old farts who actually still buys CD's. LOL!!!

Gina said...

Well, I'd been wondering about that or doubting the accuracy of my feed. If you're not feeling it, you're not! Done. Crap! One whole week more. It's about to get tricky with my kids and in-laws here.

Gina said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you LOW! Every time I see a comment from you, I'm happy. You are always so kind, positive and supportive. I miss my kids when I'm not with them (usually) but since they go to school fairly close by, I can see them often. Plus they like to come home to chill at times other than the holidays or maybe that's just for food or laundry and I don't care if it's either!

Gina said...

She's truly an incredible performer. Her last concert was amazing. My friend and I pronounced it the best show we'd ever seen and I've seen a ton. Her voice is fabulous and she's very entertaining and engages the crowd. Great to see you again over here.

Gina said...

It's really good. I've listened twice now. I'm definitely developing some favorites and a few sound really different (the mirror is one of them). We used to have to buy his music as CDs. Glad that's changed. I still give CDs as gifts to my parents, FIL and husband.

Gina said...

You are so nice. I love that compliment! I do that all the time with concert tickets. It's just a game I play. Pink is totally worth it!

AND thank you, thank you for following me. You can't see it but I'm doing a happy dance over on this end!

Mind Of Mine said...

No problem, I really enjoy reading your blog. My friend and I went to see her and I wasn't a big fan but I was blown away by the elaborate stage, performance and that voice.

Gina said...

Exactly. Her performance is out of this world AND I love her voice. Technically speaking, she really can sing and it's not all the contrived, techno-boosted mixed stuff done in a studio.

And I'm insanely happy you enjoy it over here.

There are days and moments like this. I haven't had the chance to write and comment the way I want to, not by a long shot.

But we do what we can with what we have or something like that. Teddy Roosevelt gets credit for that phrase.

TMWHickman said...

Perfectly understandable that you feel scattered today!

As for the Trifexxxtra, you will be fine. You got this!

Samantha Brinn Merel said...

I think this is a scattered week for a lot of people, myself included. You are awesome for having two rounds of company in an already hectic time. I love reading what you write all the time, and today is no exception!

Gina said...

That's true. We do what we can with what we have. I don't have a lot of energy right now. Thanks for understanding.

Gina said...

Thanks, Tina! I believe I will sit this one out re: Trifexxxtra. Yours was steamy, girl!!!

Gina said...

Well, you've just made my day Samantha. And I hope you know that I love reading anything you write too! Off to do something, just don't know where to start!
